Introducing Swagger

Our core mission at Co-Ed Supply has always been to connect students with amazing new products, brands, and entertainment. I’m proud to say that with your help we’ve grown quickly and have been helping students in all 50 states discover their favorite new snacks, bands, body washes and more for most of this past school year. In our efforts to reach even more students, today we’re introducing Swagger.

Swagger is a members only community that delivers the same amazing products you’ve been receiving, plus exclusive deals and event access for students. The best part? It’s all FREE.

We’ll gradually be letting members access Swagger, so sign up now to get on the wait list (of course you’ll all be in first). Students can move to the front of the wait list by inviting friends. The more friends one invites, the faster they’re in. The university with the most members will win a party on campus during welcome week and will be the first students granted access.
