It Pays To Be A Hurricane Fan

The new Hurricane Happenings program presented by local State Farm Insurance agent Marty McDonald is as simple as 1, 2, 3.

  1. Attend events.
  2. Accumulate points by scanning a QR code* with your smartphone.
  3. Get Milestone Prizes!

GSW Athletics has teamed up with several departments and organizations on campus, including CAB (Campus Activity Board), Residence Life, Student Affairs, Intramurals and the Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs task force, to create a student, faculty, staff and fan incentive program that rewards those who support selected campus events or activities.

How does it work?

Those who come to Hurricane Happenings events need to be on the lookout for a posted QR code (most likely at the main entrance). Just scan the code with your phone, use your log in information to your facebook account and start accumulating points that work toward receiving prizes! (Note: Upon scanning your first code in the program you will be prompted to install a LOYALTIVA app on your phone after logging into facebook. Click "INSTALL" and you're good to go.)

Here's a look at some of the Milestone Prizes available (more to be announced at a later time):

Thanks for checking out this story. Scan the code below and earn 3 Hurricane Happenings points!

* A QR Code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code). Users with a camera phone equipped with the correct reader application (free to download, see above) can scan the image of the QR Code to display text, contact information, connect to a wireless network, or open a web page in the phone's browser. A unique code will be used for each Hurricane Happenings event or point-earning posting.
