In an effort to become a comprehensive back-to-school resource for students heading off to college, Office Depot has partnered with Chegg, a leading connected learning platform that provides students access to discounted textbooks, online study help and course selection assistance, among other programs. In conjunction with the partnership, Office Depot is offering students a chance to win college supplies in it’s Countdown to College Giveaway, which is sponsored by Chegg and features prizes supplied by Office Depot.
With Chegg, Office Depot will also produce co-authored tips and articles to help students prepare for the school year. To get students going with confidence, Office Depot suggests that parents send their children to college with new, college-themed pre-paid gift cards that can provide access to supplies, technology and printing services when needed.
“As with all levels of education, college students need to be equipped with the right tools to succeed,” said Bob Moore, executive vp and chief marketing and merchandising officer for Office Depot. “At Office Depot, we will not only help them find the latest in technology, services and supplies, but also provide educational guidance in order to make each year fulfilling as possible.”
