The hunt is on! You could find $50 on your walk to class this week

Your walk to class might just be a little greener this week.

CollegePads.com is giving away (not kidding) $1,000 (NOT KIDDING) to Ohio State students this coming Wednesday, September 18 and Thursday, September 19. Finally a marketing scheme I can get behind!

Look out for black boxes that closely resemble those plastic cases we used to hold Crayola markers back in elementary school, but with a collegepads.com sticker on them. Inside you’ll find a green t-shirt, some coupons, and––straight-up––a crisp $50. This means that a grand total of 20 cases will be up for grabs.

You can find clues on College Pads’ Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook accounts starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday, and new clues will be posted after each box is found. (Be on top of their clues! At Marquette University where the event just debuted, most boxes were found within the first 15 minutes of going out.)

I recommend turning on notifications from their accounts this week so you don’t miss out.

Why are they giving away free money to students? Because they want to save you money in the long-run. They’re an off-campus marketplace and search engine to help you find housing the next few years. You can cater your account specifically to your needs whether your looking for a place, a roommate, or a sublease but don’t know what landlords to reach out to in the mess that is hundreds of off-campus options.

Happy hunting, Buckeyes!
