NEW YORK, July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Leading teen apparel retailer, rue21 has partnered with student discount specialist UNiDAYS to target students with 10% off their online purchases.

Appealing to the millennial demographic is a priority for rue21's website, three years on since its launch in 2013[1]. With insight that the digital coupon user base in the US has grown 27% since 2012 to 68.4 million users[2], and millennials in particular (81%) are seeking out coupons more than any other demographic, the partnership is a key tactic to attract young consumers.

"rue21 is thrilled to help students save extra money while they pursue their education. Every dollar counts for these savvy shoppers. Passing along these savings so that our nation's future leaders can spend their extra cash on textbooks, computers and life experiences during this important time is at the heart of rue21's core values" said Joel Layton, VP of Digital Marketing at rue21.
