SAN DIEGO STATE UNIVERSITY
San Diego State Football is extremely thankful for the partnership with BirdieBox during the 2018 Frisco Bowl. The gift selection allowed our student-athletes, coaches and support staff to choose from a wide array of products that were tailored to their specific needs/ wants. Whether we needed new headphones for workouts or wanted a custom corn hole set for the backyard, BirdieBox included many life essentials for us to choose from.
Fortunately, Chrissy made our experience with BirdieBox extremely easy and enjoyable. Anytime we had a question about the process, Chrissy was only a phone call or email away. She would always bring unmatchable energy and excitement when we needed help with anything.
I understand BirdieBox initially wanted us to partake in the gift suite option at the hotel or a selected venue but our staff felt this was not the best for our team. Then, I understand that BirdieBox had created a website for our student-athletes, coaches and support staff to easily select their gifts but we opted out of this option as well because we felt our group would not complete this in a timely manner. So we quickly put our brains together to figure out the best process for us. I created a document that I handed out to everyone which included their gift suite options and from there they selected what they wanted. After our group selected what they wanted, I scanned over each document to Chrissy. Chrissy then created an internal excel file which was updated hourly as the scanned files came through her email. (Please refer to the created document for specifics). Though this process was new for both Chrissy and myself, Chrissy was extremely hands-on and allowed us to create a method that worked best for us.
As promised, 4 weeks later the gifts arrived! Each box was individually labeled with names, which made it extremely easy to disperse. About 5-6 boxes were missing an item or two, but luckily Chrissy was extremely easy to work with. Chrissy took the initiative to apologize for the missing items and over nighted the gifts.
Overall, San Diego State Football is extremely thankful for the partnership with BirdieBox. Our team will get good use out of their selected items. Thank you for all your help, Chrissy!
