Did you know that you can get prizes for attending home games at Brandeis? “We the Jury” is an app where Brandeis students can log what games they have attended, earn coins which can later be exchanged for prizes.
The app can be found on the App Store or on the Galaxy Store. You then create an account with whatever username you want. The app has an events tab, where you can see all the upcoming home games and the number of coins you get if you attend that game. Usually games are 20 coins.
In order to get the coins, you need to check in at the venue during the game. Sometimes there are featured matches, and you can get more coins for attending that event. According to the app’s FAQ, “each semester, anywhere from 8-12 events will be designated as ‘Featured Events.’ These are games that are generally deemed big games such as rivalry games, home openers, or home playoff games.”
Usually during those featured events there is free food and giveaways (though this isn’t always the case, look out for emails from the Athletics department to see when there will be food). The previous featured game was Women’s volleyball on Oct. 22; at the event students got free pizza, stress dice and foam gavels. Attendees can get 25 coins in the first half of the game and an additional 25 coins in the second half of the game.
The prizes for under 100 coins include a phone wallet for 60 coins, stress dice for 80 coins and a five dollar bookstore giftcard or texting gloves for 100 coins. For 175 coins, you can get a $10 Chillbox gift card or a $10 giftcard to The Prime Deli. For 200 coins you can get a long-sleeve judges shirt. 225 coins will get you a $25 giftcard to either The Chateau or to Jake & Joe’s. You can get a “’Deis” hoodie for 250 coins. 300 coins will get you two AMC yellow movie tickets, while 350 coins will get you a 24 oz Hydroflask. For 400 coins, you can get a $50 giftcard to Jake & Joe’s. Brandeis sweatpants cost 450 coins. The largest prize on the app is an Amazon Echo Dot, which will cost you 600 coins.
There is also a Fan Cam, where people can post pictures of themselves at the games. Others can see the photos and like/share them. There are also sometimes competitions in the Fan Cam section, where you can get bonus coins for sharing photos. You can see the leaderboard, which shows the ranking of the users by number of coins.
According to the app, “prizes may be picked in the Gosman Athletic Center anytime from Monday-Friday during business hours. Please confirm a time to pick up your item by emailing Andrew Vatistas.” Both undergraduate and graduate students are able to participate. Right now, you can enter the code “DEIS2021” to get 40 bonus coins. Happy cheering!
