Are you still looking for ways to cut costs for your students?? The Student Savings Initiative (SSI) can help.

There’s still time to join our new program to offer even more cost-saving solutions for your students. When your school joins the Student Savings Initiative (SSI), we’ll work together to directly affect course material prices on your campus. It’s an easy way to make a big impact on students’ perception of your school!

Your school simply works with your MBS Direct Account Manager to determine how we should reallocate profit to provide the biggest impact on course material costs. There are several options from free shipping to textbook scholarships to price decreases, so we’ll collaborate to find the best fit for your school’s needs. It’s easy and you maintain total control of the process!

Once you join the Student Savings Initiative, you’ll also gain access to free promotional resources that help you inform both prospective and current students of your money-saving efforts. There’s an exclusive SSI badge you can place on your website and other marketing materials, but it doesn’t end there — our marketing kit includes emails, press releases and social media posts to help promote your school’s commitment to student savings.

After a year of savings, we’ll also let your students and community know just how much they saved on course materials thanks to your school being an SSI partner.

If you’re interested in learning more about SSI and how you can take part, contact your Account Manager today.
