RALEIGH, N.C. (Oct. 16, 2013) – NC State students, faculty and staff now have the option to enjoy special discounts from select Hillsborough Street merchants through the Wolfpack One Debit MasterCard program.

Each month, the participating Hillsborough Street merchants will offer special discounts exclusively to NC State students, faculty and staff who have activated the Wolfpack One Debit MasterCard and made a deposit.

The Wolfpack One Card office has partnered with the Hillsborough Street Community Services Corporation (HSCSC) to promote the program. Merchants who have already signed up to participate include Pita Pit, The Alley, Jersey Mike’s, Coffee Haven, Two Guys and Fresh Berry.

Jeff Murison, executive director of HSCSC, said that for many years, Hillsborough Street merchants have asked for ways to connect with student, faculty and staff through a program similar to those found at other education institutions.

“We are excited about this partnership and appreciate NC State developing a program that offers a positive opportunity for the merchants,” Murison said. “Today’s consumers are more and more sophisticated, looking for great deals that are easy to use and are technology friendly solutions. The Howling Good Deals accomplishes all of that and more.”

Jennifer Gilmore, director of marketing and communications for the Wolfpack One Card office, said this program is designed to connect NC State’s community with the Hillsborough Street merchants and make the ID card even more useful.

“Because Hillsborough Street is an essentially an extension of our campus, this partnership only makes our relationship stronger and our ID card more useful,” Gilmore said. “Students, faculty and staff can carry one card that allows them to not only eat on campus and make purchases through our NC State Dining and AllCampus programs, but also get good deals on Hillsborough Street by using the Debit MasterCard Account.”

Matt Domanski, manager at Jersey Mike’s, said that as a new merchant on Hillsborough Street, Jersey Mike’s is excited about any opportunity to connect with the students, faculty and staff on campus at NC State.

“We look forward to serving customers for years to come, and the new ID card will help us reach more people. In addition, we will be able to share specials to the great folks at N.C. State,” Domanaski said.

All deals are listed on the Wolfpack One Card Facebook page, the Live It Up Hillsborough Street Facebook page and the Wolfpack One Debit MasterCard webpage. These deals will be updated monthly.

Students, faculty and staff who have not activated their accounts and made a deposit can learn more about how to do so on the Wolfpack One Card website.
