school spirit promo

The school year is back! Student’s all across the country are headed back to school recharged (hopefully) from a long summer break. As many of our friends and family head off to college, school spirit is in abundance. At GET, we’re celebrating the new beginning with a “Show Us Your School Spirit” promotion!

To play along, direct message us through Facebook before Friday, September 26, with pictures of you and your family sporting your favorite college gear! Be sure to include an approval for us to share the picture on our Facebook page. Pictures will be posted to a School Spirit album on GET’s Facebook Timeline. On September 26th, the top three pictures will be selected by a panel of GET staff members. The criteria will be based on the amount of school spirit shown (hint: the more gear, flags and large foam accessories you show, the more likely we are to be wowed by your team spirit). We will also consider any especially unique ideas, and the amount of family and/or friends you get involved. From the 26th to the 29th, the top three fan pictures will be shared on GET’s Facebook page, and we will ask our Facebook followers to “Like” the picture that they believe shows the best school spirit. The fan who submitted the picture that garners the most “Likes,” will be awarded a $200 gift card. That’s enough to outfit the entire family in your favorite college sports swag!

Don’t forget to be creative and have fun with it. Now get out there, show your school spirit, and get ready for what’s sure to be a great year in academics!

Where in the World is Hootie, The College Super Saver?

| Leave a Comment

Wheres-Hootie

In case you missed it, a couple weeks ago we welcomed the newest member of the GET Team – Hootie, The College Super Saver. Since starting with GET, Hootie’s already been busy rescuing families from future student loan debt by helping them start their college savings. Recently Hootie caught wind of a rumor that students have used GET to pay for tuition and qualified expenses at colleges, universities and technical schools in all 50 states and 14 foreign countries. So, this month Hootie is packing his bags, spreading his wings and taking flight to colleges and universities around the globe to find out if this rumor has any merit.

Each week in August, Hootie will be at a different school touring their campus, learning about their academic programs and hunting for evidence as to whether GET has truly been used at schools around the world. We’ll need your assistance in keeping tabs on him, so we’re running a contest on our Facebook page where you can to help us locate him. Every Tuesday we’ll provide clues and ask you to tell us what school he’s at. The first Facebook fan to post the correct answer on our Facebook timeline will win a prize*:

  •          Week #1: $50 Barnes and Noble Gift Card
  •          Week #2: $50 Amazon Gift Card
  •          Week #3: $50 Barnes and Noble Gift Card
  •          Week #4: $50 Amazon Gift Card

These prizes were selected in the spirit of the nationwide effort to prevent kids from experiencing the dreaded summer learning loss. We hope that the winners of these gift cards will find them useful in keeping their kids reading for the rest of the summer. For some extra fun (and a great research and learning opportunity), we encourage you to work together with your kids to identify the school Hootie is visiting each week. Hootie has his work cut out for him as he sets out on his quest to unearth the facts. So hold on and get ready to help us tail him as he takes off in hot pursuit of the truth.

*Disclaimer: GET’s August “Where in the World is Hootie?” promotion will take place from Tuesday, August 5, 2014 through Tuesday, August 26, 2014. Once a week during the promotion on Tuesday, GET will post clues about the location of their mascot on the program’s Facebook page. Each week, one $50 gift card (to Barnes and Noble in weeks one and three, and to Amazon in weeks two and four) will be awarded to the first GET Facebook fan that guesses the correct answer. To be eligible to win the weekly prize, fans must post their guess on GET’s Facebook timeline. The first fan to guess the correct answer will be determined as the prize winner. Selected winners will be notified by GET via Facebook private message and will have seven days to claim their prize by replying to the private message. If they do not reply the GET program within seven days, the prize will be awarded to the next fan who guessed the correct answer. Gift card prizes will be delivered to prize winners no later than September 30, 2014. When prizes are sent, there will be an enclosed form confirming receipt of the gift card. Prize winners will be required to complete this form and return to the program no later than October 31, 2014. Individuals can only win one prize during the course of the entire promotion. Washington Student Achievement Council employees and their families are not eligible. Facebook, Amazon and Barnes and Noble are not affiliated with, and do not otherwise support or endorse this promotion or the GET program.

Win an iPad Mini with Our Spring Referral Promotion

| Leave a Comment

Referral-Promo-ImageWe receive valuable input on a daily basis that helps us make continuous improvements to the GET Program. Some of the most valuable feedback we receive is that of our account holders – the individuals and families who trust us to help them prepare their children for the future. We hold their opinions, positive or constructive, in extremely high regard. For this reason, the highest compliment we can receive from them is a referral to a friend. With this great gift in mind, we would like to reward account holders that refer a friend between now and Friday, May 23rd, by entering them into a drawing with a chance to win an iPad Mini! Using the Tell a Friend feature on our secure website, you can send a message to a friend that you believe may benefit from the program. We will follow up with a short message with information about GET, and your name will be entered in the weekly drawing for an iPad. The friend or family member that you refer will also be entered in a separate drawing to win an enrollment fee waiver (valued at $50) for the program. Drawings will be held once a week during the promotion for a total of four drawings (one entry per person, per week). Our GET families have often been gracious enough to pass on their thoughts on the program. The Hayes Family of Bellingham writes, “We value GET for the opportunity to invest in a fund that secures college for our children. Knowing that our children will have access to higher education, gives us a great sense of security and peace of mind.” The Schofield-Isensee Family of Ferndale adds, “It is a relief to have our son’s college savings with GET. We don’t yet know his future, but we are grateful that our choice to save with GET will enable him to have more choices later.” Kind words from families offer a great insight into the things that our account holders find to be most valuable about the program. The confidence of our account holder’s is invaluable to us. Over the 16 years since GET began, word of mouth has been a powerful method of spreading awareness of the program. For all of you that have contributed to this, we’d like to say thank you! By sharing your stories, insights, and successes, you are helping other families plan ahead for an important expense and providing them with tools to make an informed decision.
