eCampus.com Celebrates Fifteen Years of Saving Students Money
Lexington, KY – July 2014 marks fifteen years in business for Lexington based company, eCampus.com. To celebrate this milestone, the E-tailer will begin a nation-wide sweepstakes on July 28 that will run until September 12. With no purchase necessary, customers will have the opportunity to win a grand prize, unveiled by President and CEO, Matt Montgomery, on July 18 at eCampus.com headquarters on Palumbo Drive, at 2 pm.
In 1999, the company’s founding year, eCampus.com ran a similar campaign - giving away a Hummer H1, titled the “Wanna Winna Hummer” Sweepstakes. After winning the sweepstakes, Daniel Drawe, a graduate of Southern Utah University, screamed “This is like winning the lottery!” A reaction deemed memorable by eCampus.com.
Originally supported by investors including Wendy’s franchise founder, Dave Thomas; eCampus.com quickly achieved industry recognition by offering one of the largest selections in used textbooks. In 2008, eCampus.com became the first online college bookstore to provide electronic textbooks (eBooks). In 2009, eCampus.com was among the first to allow students to rent their textbooks. In 2013, eCampus.com launched eTechCampus, a full 1:1 consulting service that implements a digital learning solution and houses the largest digital library in the country.
“Our success is driven by our ability to adapt in the ever changing market. It is rewarding enough to remain a leading competitor in this industry,” said Montgomery, “But I am proud of all the employees who helped us accomplish such a milestone. We appreciate our loyal customers and we look forward to continuing our success in the years to come.”
