Chegg, The Student Hub, has acquired student deal platform Campus Special. The Campus Special platform, which will be rebranded Chegg Campus Deals, expands the number of ways students can engage with Chegg. Students across more than 500 college campuses use Campus Special to order and pay for food and to discover offers from local and national merchants. The service derives revenue from every food order placed through its app, in addition to the local and national advertising sold both within the app and in its widely-distributed coupon books. Campus Special offers a unique way for college students to save money on everything from food and clothing to books, auto repairs and more.
When we first went to market, Corum, with their experience and offices all over the world, spent time with us going through who the potential partners could be. And, frankly they were everywhere. The tech headlines can just as easily be out of England, Germany, France, Finland, Korea, China or North America. Some of the biggest and fastest growing firms in the tech world are not in the U.S. so we felt it imperative to do a truly global buyer search. We’re glad we did.
