The University of Kansas and Off-Campus Advantage have teamed up to bring the KU Card Beak ‘Em Bucks program aboard the Off-Campus Advantage network. Students use their KU Card as their official university ID, for building access, and for a variety of on-campus purchases including printing, photocopying, laundry, and food purchases. They can also link their KU Card to a Commerce Bank KU Checking Account and use it as a limited debit and ATM card. With Off-Campus Advantage, students are now able to use their KU Card Beak ‘Em Bucks account for off-campus purchases.
Through the partnership, Off-Campus Advantage has built an off-campus merchant network and creates integrated marketing initiatives to educate students on where to use their Beak ‘Em Bucks on and off campus. The marketing leverages University communication channels and a Beak 'Em Bucks website to encourage students and parents to make deposits into the KU Card Beak 'Em Bucks account. Not only do Off-Campus Advantage merchants benefit from the targeted marketing, but they also have access to a pool of funds previously unavailable.
The University of Kansas joins a growing list of schools that includes the University of Colorado, Boulder, the University of Texas, Arlington, the University of Mississippi, and Old Dominion University that are utilizing Off-Campus Advantage’s expertise in enhancing University one-card programs and creating local merchant networks.
If you are interested in participating in the Beak ‘Em Bucks program, please feel free to contact Nancy Miles, KU Card Program Director at 785/864-5934 or email@example.com. We look forward to working with you.
