Get rewarded for the good you do every day

Imagine if every time you rode the bus, biked, refilled your water bottle, donated time or recycled, you were rewarded with PIPs (positive impact points) - a 'currency of good' that you can redeem for great deals on healthy, organic food, fitness classes, responsibly made clothing and gear, or on textbooks or other school expenses.

Well, you can now with the PIPs Rewards App, chock full of special offers, games and cool prizes like ski passes, tickets to shows at the Fox and Boulder theater, and climbing gym passes!

PIPs are Positive Impact Points -  a ‘currency of change’ - that are earned and redeemed for verifiable daily life behaviors that benefit the planet, community and personal health. Behaviors are tracked and rewarded via the PIPs Rewards App that has been customized for CU Boulder students.

You can earn PIPs for:

  • Bike sharing with B-Cycle and BuffBikes, ride sharing and carpooling with Lyft and Lyft Line, car sharing with eGo CarShare and riding the HOP bus (That’s right, leave your car at home - you won’t need it!)


  • Recycling your mobile or laptop, and buying ‘new to you’ with Gazelle


  • Shopping lightly used and vintage clothing with Etsy and ThredUp


  • Volunteering on campus and with local non-profits


  • Attending CU events 


  • Refilling your water bottle
 at campus locations

  • Participating in contests, challenges and games


How to sign up:
