C Spire partners with State, Ole Miss

In a first-of-a-kind partnership in the nation, C Spire Wireless is partnering with Mississippi State and Ole Miss and the schools’ social media rewards programs.

From C Spire:

Fans and participants of Hail State and Ole Miss Social Rewards programs will now be able to interact and engage with C Spire Wireless to earn additional rewards and new giveaways. Additionally, C Spire’s participation gives these already successful rewards programs a new and unique mobile element – allowing fans to engage using their mobile wireless device.

The social media partnership between C Spire Wireless and the two Mississippi universities is the first of its kind in the nation and will be officially announced during the MSU-Jackson State football game in Starkville and the Ole Miss-Central Arkansas game in Oxford on Saturday.

With the addition of C Spire Wireless to Ole Miss Social Rebels and Hail State Social Rewards, fans will be able to earn more points to redeem for great rewards by interacting with the wireless provider and using C Spire’s personalized network to engage with the schools.

By using social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, participants will now be able to earn rewards simply by checking into a C Spire Wireless retail location and C Spire fan events on Foursquare, comment on a Facebook or Twitter post, “like” the C Spire Facebook page or “like” a comment on the company’s Facebook page.

In addition to the Mississippi State and Ole Miss prizes and rewards already offered to fans, C Spire will also be providing amazing rewards like new wireless devices, accessories and more

C Spire Wireless is also making it possible for Ole Miss and Mississippi State fans to engage in the games socially. During Mississippi State and Ole Miss football games, fans can tweet photos that can be seen on the stadium jumbotron. Additionally, fans can request songs, vote for the player of the game and even tweet in their seat sections for a chance to win additional points and prizes.
