College students nationwide will now be able to use the Memolink Discount Card as a Sprint long-distance calling card by signing up for the card online. A newly announced agreement between Sprint and Memolink allows college students who visit the Memolink Web site to use the Memolink Card as a long-distance calling card and earn additional Memolink points.
Memolink, a leading college Web site with more than 175,000 members, currently sells the discount card to college students across the country. Students receive discounts at select retailers on everything from school supplies to food, music and much more.
Students sign up for the card by visiting the Memolink Web site, http://www.memolink.com, where members can earn points for surfing the Web, filling out surveys, and purchasing certain products. Memolink points can be redeemed for gift certificates with a wide array of companies.
Through its agreement with Memolink, Sprint will provide domestic calling card functionality on the Memolink Card. To use the card, students call 800-2SPRINT and follow the voice prompts. There is also a collect calling option.
Best of all, as a special limited-time promotion, students can go to Memolink.com and get the Memolink Card for free. The card normally costs $12.50. Students who activate the Sprint calling card portion of the Memolink Card online will get up to 60 free minutes of domestic long-distance calling. As a special bonus, for every full dollar spent using the calling card, students will receive Memolink points. Students receive this special offer only by visiting the Memolink.com Web site and signing up for a Memolink Card.
“College students looking for an innovative way to make the most of a points-based reward program will find great value with the promotion we’ve created between Sprint and Memolink,” said Keith Gallagher, director of Sprint College Marketing. “Students can take their long-distance with them wherever they go — they’ll get great rates and there are no monthly fees to pay.”
The Sprint calling card portion of the Memolink card can be used to make calls from almost anywhere. It’s perfect when you’re on the go, when you need to make a call in an emergency, or when you are short of change for a pay phone. There is a 26-cent charge for calls originating from a pay phone. The card also provides a convenient way to keep track of long-distance calls. There’s no need to split the phone bill with roommates because you get your own bill.
“The Sprint calling card element provides students the perfect way to stay in touch with family and friends during the school year and all year long,” added Gallagher. “Memolink provides a great opportunity for Sprint to reach college consumers with a unique promotion in an online environment.”
