LINCOLN, Neb., Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Neebo, the nationwide network of college bookstores backed by their online website Neebo.com, has partnered with long-running comedy website CollegeHumor.com to offer students more than just discounts on their college textbooks. Students who shop on Neebo.com will not only get a twenty percent savings on their textbooks, but can also win their school a CollegeHumor Live show hosted by two of the site's long-time stars, Jake and Amir.
Between now and September 15, 2012, students can go to Neebo.com to order their textbooks at a twenty percent discount by entering the promocode "COLLEGEHUMOR" at checkout. Plus, all books ordered at Neebo.com include free shipping. After students complete their order, they can enter their college for a chance to win a CollegeHumor Live show in their school's town. The college with the most orders by September 15 will win the live show and be visited by CollegeHumor's Jake and Amir along with other members of the site's popular cast. A few lucky students will also receive additional prizes including free tickets and autographed merchandise. The winning college will be announced on Neebo.com and CollegeHumor.com on September 16, and the show will be scheduled before the end of the year.
"The cost of textbooks is at an all-time high; students spend an average of seven hundred dollars a year on textbooks," said Steve Clemente, President and Chief Operating Officer of Neebo. "Neebo helps students get the most out of their college experience, from saving money to bringing memorable and fun activities to their campus. We're thrilled to partner with CollegeHumor as we continue delivering on our commitments to college students this year."
CollegeHumor.com is a leading comedy-driven website for young adults, and their popular CollegeHumor Live shows repeatedly sell out. Members of the CollegeHumor cast will pack up and travel to the winning college campus to perform a live show which will be hosted by Jake and Amir—who were recently named to Variety's 2012 "10 Comics to Watch" list—and streamed live on CollegeHumor.com.
"We're excited to be teaming with Neebo as students head into the fall semester, and look forward to bringing one of our successful CollegeHumor Live events to the students and community of the winning school," says Mike Mobley, Vice President of Media Sales for CollegeHumor Media.
Giving away a CollegeHumor Live show is just part of the fun. With campus wide competitions and memorable promotions, Neebo hooks college students up in ways that go way beyond cash. Follow Neebo on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube to stay in the loop on other giveaways and promotions and to be the first to find out what they're doing next on a campus near you!
