Student Engagement and Services is very pleased to be launching a new student benefits and experience program called ACUXtra in 2015.
ACUXtra provides a range of benefits to all ACU students, irrespective of their enrolling campus or their attendance pattern, which is particularly vital for away-from-base and part-time students who spend minimal time on physical campuses. The program is funded by SSAF and is available at no extra charge to all enrolled international and domestic students.
ACU has partnered with Infinite Rewards to deliver a web-based, hosted rewards platform that is online and accessible 24/7, with customer service available via phone, email and instant messaging. The program will expand the University’s program delivery mix from predominantly on-campus delivery modes, to a more diverse delivery model, mirroring the changing relationship students have with their University.
ACUXtra has been launched with over a hundred partners offered by Infinite Rewards. Each partner was targeted based on an analysis of ACU's student demographic and existing survey data. More local businesses are being added each month, with deals that complement the campus-based services and activities. Engagement and feedback from students is vital to targeting discount offers from local food and drink and entertainment providers.
Student deals are available in a range of categories:
fashion and beauty
food and drink
sport and fitness
home and automotive
movies and entertainment
magazines and books
travel and experiences
Examples of the discounts available include 50 per cent off movie tickets, five per cent off groceries and fuel from the major retailers, and 15 to 30 per cent off a range of online fashion retailers.
