Partnership between BNC and Verizon to Drive Success and Savings
for Students through Sweepstakes, Discounts and More
Barnes & Noble College (BNC) today announced the launch of
the College Textbooks Sweepstakes, in partnership with Verizon. The
sweepstakes aims to prepare students for a successful Spring 2021
semester by awarding a $500 textbook scholarship to 1,000 winners.
The sweepstakes is part of a year-long partnership between BNC and
Verizon, one of the world’s leading technology companies. Verizon
will serve as the official wireless sponsor for the 2020-2021
school year at more than 500 BNC campus retail locations
nationwide, helping to drive student success and savings through
sweepstakes, and bring awareness to their expansive product
offering and student discount.
The College Textbooks Sweepstakes* is open to college students
at BNC campus stores nationwide, and with $500,000 in total prizes,
this is BNC’s largest textbooks sweepstakes ever. The $500 prize
will be awarded to 1,000 winners to be used at their BNC campus
store. Participating BNC campus retail locations will promote the
sweepstakes and drive student entries through its dedicated
bookstore communication channels.
“We are thrilled to partner with Verizon, whose ability to
deliver wireless access and affordable technology to students is
more relevant than ever in this current learning environment,” said
Lisa Malat, President of Barnes & Noble College. “At Barnes
& Noble College, accessibility and affordability are at the
core of all we do, and we are continuously seeking new ways to
ensure we are serving all who work to elevate their lives through
education. We look forward to seeing all we will accomplish with
Verizon as we work together to drive success and savings for
college students nationwide.”
Barnes & Noble College serves an extensive network of
students, reaching millions of Gen Z students through its physical
store footprint as well as its web and mobile channels. By
leveraging BNC’s access to the college audience, Verizon will be
