January saw us welcome tech giants, jewellery stalwarts and subscription services to the Student Beans family. Here’s a roundup of the latest arrivals to launch with us.

WHSmith (UK)

Whether it’s Freshers or exam season, students’ shopping lists will include the stationery and tech needed to help them study better – after all, Gen Z is the most academically-driven generation to date. All of this makes WHSmith a perfect partner for Student Beans. We’re thrilled to welcome the book and stationery retailer to our website, launching with a 10% student discount. 

Boro (US)

The Gen Z student cohort are known for being financially savvy. Looking to reach as many student consumers as possible, Boro selected Student Beans as a partner, launching with a listing on our US site. We can’t wait to propel Boro in front of a new cohort of savvy students.

Microsoft Store (AU)

With Welcome Week just around the corner, Aussie students will be on the lookout for the tech to see them through the academic year and beyond. Which means Microsoft Store has launched at just the right time. By giving students 10% off surface devices, they’re well-set to turn new students into lifelong customers.

Chow Sang Sang (CN)

Also new to Student Beans this month is Chow Sang Sang. The Chinese beauty retailer has opened its virtual doors to a whole new cohort of young consumers by partnering with us to launch a student program. We cant wait to watch their conversion rates skyrocket!

Bulletproof (US)

As a health-conscious generation, Gen Z students are constantly on the lookout for new ways to meet their fitness goals and promote an energetic, healthy lifestyle. This comes to them in the form of Bulletproof – a wellness and nutrition brand. Via Student Beans’ verification technology, they’re all set to optimize their conversions and make it into the baskets of fitness-focused students across the US.

Virgin Media (UK)

First year is the first time that many students choose their own wifi provider – so it’s crucial for providers to make a strong first impression. Virgin Media is doing just that. Their listing on propels them in front of our engaged community of students, pushing them to the front of the mind.

Funimation (US, UK)

Our student insiders have told us that streaming services have been one of their entertainment pillars during the pandemic. So the arrival of Funimation will go down a treat. Recognising that students respond well to freebies, the anime platform has launched with a free month of their Premium Plus service – which will no doubt entice student anime fans on both sides of the pond.

Seetickets (FR)

European ticket and events platform, Seetickets, has broadened its reach to students by launching with Student Beans in France this month. We’re excited for them to reach more and more students across the country as we move into a new normal.

Daily Harvest (US)

We know that Gen Z students are a health-conscious bunch – so the arrival of Daily Harvest on will be music to many of their ears. Offering students $30 off their first box, the health food subscription service is poised to win the loyalty of Gen Z foodies across the US.

See you in February? We can’t wait to see these brands grow their student consumer bases and optimize their conversion rates with us. But we’d love for you to join us, too. If you want to discuss setting up your own student program, contact us today.
