Buffs PIPs Rewards Trivia Content starts August 5th
PIPs (positive impact points) are a 'currency for good' used on our campus that you could redeem for great deals on healthy, organic food, fitness classes, responsibly made clothing and gear, or on textbooks and other school expenses.
Download the App today and start earning even before getting to campus. Need a new cell phone or laptop? Earn a pocket-full of PIPs when you purchase a "new-to-you" laptop through the PIPs App partner, Gazelle. Get your back-to-school wardrobe with lightly used brand name clothes from ThredUp or responsibly-made gear from EarthHero or Cotopaxi.
And don't miss out on the first Buffs PIPs Trivia contest which starts August 5th. It doesn't matter where you are, you can play, earn PIPs for correct answers, and if you prove to be a top trivia-buff Buff, you'll get to choose from a pretty awesome list of prizes. Just go to Challenges on the App Main Menu, then the Trivia Contest to sign up.
Once on campus, make sure to stop by the Environmental Center for water bottle refill and biking QR code stickers - the most popular ways to earn. Additionally, plan to join in PIPs all-play scavenger hunt starting Thursday August 23rd at 3 PM during the Buffs After Dark event. Hint: Playing Buffs PIPs Trivia just might help you be a winner in the Scavenger Hunt.
