Forever 21 Launches Back-to-School Fashion Campaign With SCVNGR

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 8, 2011) - Today, Forever 21 announced mobile challenges on SCVNGR to bring students a fun, social and more interactive way to earn rewards and save serious cash as they gear up for the school year. So put away your tank tops and shorts and have some back-to-school shopping fun by playing SCVNGR at Forever 21!

As part of Fashion's Night Out and until October 10th, shoppers can visit any of the 469 Forever 21 U.S. locations and play SCVNGR to win awesome rewards, such as 10%, 15% and 21% discounts off of in-store merchandise, and the chance to win a free outfit. Sample challenges include:

  • "Denim Is In:" Check out the clip on all our denim styles & then tell us what your favorite is.
  • "Super Speedy Fashion:" What Forever 21 item would you choose to transform an outfit in a flash? Tell us which accessory you can't live without.
  • "What To Wear:" The right outfit can make you feel like a million bucks. Put together a new look, go to the fitting room and snap a pic of yourself wearing your new outfit.

"Forever 21 has quickly become the source for the most current fashions at the greatest value, and we're thrilled to provide students with even more ways to save money as they settle into the school year," said Linda Chang, Senior Marketing Manager for Forever 21. "By introducing mobile challenges on SCVNGR, we've created an exciting shopping experience for our customers and a new way for them to engage with our products."

"The Forever 21 challenges on SCVNGR are a great example of how a store can take advantage of SCVNGR's social game engine to connect with their customers and promote fall fashion," said Chris Mahl, SVP and Chief Brand Alchemist, SCVNGR. "SCVNGR's platform allows brands to creatively engage customers and reward them for making repeat visits to their store."
