Targus is a leading manufacturer of mobile computing accessories who introduced the first universal dual-video docking station to the public.

With customers from all backgrounds and lifestyles, Targus wanted to create a variety of special offers to honor the men and women of the military, as well give back to the millions of students and teachers working towards or providing others with an education. However, to do this, they needed a way to keep these online offers exclusive to the intended customers.

Targus discovered SheerID and officially implemented verification to get these promotions off the ground. SheerID implemented hosted verification pages for each customer segment. Upon choosing teacher or student, or military, a lightbox pops up with a short verification form. With a few simple, non-sensitive pieces of information, customers’ eligibility is instantly verified on the backend. Once verified, the customer then receives a single-use coupon code for 25% off their entire purchase at Targus.com.

All of this takes place within the branded Targus website and existing customer experience. Simple for the customer, safe for Targus. A win-win!
