Online learning made easier; Perlego joins the Virtual Freshers’ Fair!

Good morning from Paperclip HQ! We come to you on this glorious Friday with an exciting new offer from our friends at Perlego...

Tell me more...

Last month, we unveiled our new Digital Welcome Pack for freshers and returning students. With this year's Fresher's Fairs facing an uncertain future due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the team began work on a virtual alternative for students ready the start of the new academic year.

We think there's no reason that students in the UK shouldn't be able to take advantage of the fabulous deals and discounts they come to expect from in-person Freshers' Fairs. Our mission is to bring students as much value as possible, without them having to spend time a crowded indoor venue.

The team at HQ have spent the summer months shortlisting a set of deals for students to enjoy whether their going out, staying in or just looking to save some cash on their uni essentials. Last month, we reached out to leading online textbook provider Perlego to see if they'd like to run a promotion to help students during this difficult time, they duly obliged...

So what's the deal?

We all know how expensive uni textbooks can be, especially considering that after exam day, chances are they won't ever be read again. This is where Perlego comes in...

Perlego offers a unique e-reader experience for both desktop and mobile. For a small subscription fee, Perlego allows you to access hundreds of thousands of books whether you're at home, at uni or on the move. Perlego even allows you to annotate and takes notes in the margins!

Now, everyone who signs up to the Welcome Pack will receive a 14 day trial of Perlego completely free of charge. Anyone who receives a pack will be provided with a link that takes you the trial page. Quickly fill out the form and you can begin reading instantly. Oh, and don't worry, you wont be charged unexpectedly - you can cancel anytime and Perlego will even send you an email reminding you when your trial is about to end.

The beginning of something special...

Speaking on the new partnership, Paperclip CMO Laurence said "It's great to have Perlego in the new Welcome Pack. Both ourselves and the team at Perlego share similar values; we both want to make sure students have all they need for university, without them having to spend a fortune. Working with such an innovative company has been a joy and we are thrilled to be offering this great deal to students across the country."

Perlego CEO Gauthier Van Malderen added: “During these challenging times for education, we are working hard to ensure students are provided with the necessary resources to effectively continue their studies. Our partnership with Paperclip will offer a new audience of students easier, direct access to the range of resources available on Perlego, and we are excited to be working alongside them to provide students with a unique and new solution to save cash while accessing their books from anywhere."

Paperclip and Perlego will be working together on exciting promotions for our student users throughout the 2020/21 and beyond, so stay tuned for more info...
