Blend bridges the gap between the brands and students creating an innovative channel that offers a curated collection of the hottest brands and the finest products specifically for the college audience. On Blend, brands receive promotional consideration to the most sought-after demographic - the millennial student. This exclusive college-only app offers a new engaging way for students to share their unique experiences. Students share photos relating to the theme of the day, earn Snaps (likes) from peers nationwide, and use their Snaps to redeem free gifts. Blend integrates free products and gift cards directly into students’ photo feeds, putting brands front and center. Blend only partners with brands that they know appeal to the college audience.

There are only 4 steps in becoming a Blend Brand:

1. Confirm that college students will love you.

2. Upon Blend’s confirmation, send us Gift Cards/Product. There are no other costs to participate.

3. Send us 5-10 samples for a customized Blend photo shoot that they host. These photos will be used in the Blend Gift cells.

4. Drink up and let us take care of the rest.
