North Dakota State uses app for student rewards

SuperFanU app brings student loyalty to student devices

Andrew Hudson   ||   Aug 19, 2016  ||   ,

The North Dakota State Athletic Department has contracted SuperFanU, a student loyalty and engagement company, to launch the new Bison Rewards mobile app. The app will enable NDSU students to earn points and redeem rewards based on events and activities they attend and "check-in" to.

According to a university release, reward points can be used to earn prizes and exclusive offers from the North Dakota State Athletic Department. The app provides other information for students including athletic team schedules, school news, an opportunity to share photos through a 'fan cam,' and receive real-time information through the university's social media accounts in one consolidated feed.

NDSU selected SuperFanU as its loyalty program partner following deployments at numerous other DI, DII and DIII colleges and universities. The free-to-download Bison Rewards App is available for both Apple and Android devices.

Only active students are eligible for rewards and all participants must fully complete their Bison Rewards mobile app account profile with a valid student email address. The app uses geo-location to reward students for supporting and "checking-in" to North Dakota State athletics events. Upon arrival, students click “Check In” on the events tab, remain for the entirety of the event, and then receive reward points to their account.

Students can redeem some rewards at NDSU marketing tables located at home events, while other prizes may require students to redeem rewards at a sponsor’s location.

SuperFanU was founded in 2011 as a fan loyalty application platform designed for sports teams to engage and grow their fan base. The company customizes mobile apps for athletics departments and teams to incentivize and reward fans. The company currently works with more than 140 high schools, universities and professional teams.
