"Touchdown Tuesdays" a shopping bargain for all SXU Cougar football fans

Four more opportunities to save on discounted sportswear

Chicago (Sept. 27, 2010) The "Touchdown Tuesdays" promotion is underway at Saint Xavier University's Campus Bookstore, in the Shannon Center on the Chicago campus at 3700 W. 103rd St. Every SXU Cougar touchdown in a home game this season triggers a five percent discount on sportswear up to 30 percent on the Tuesday following that game, no coupons or tickets required, limit of one item per visit.  Campus Bookstore hours on Tuesdays are 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The nationally ranked (#4) high-flying Cougar offense bodes well for bargain shoppers.  The first two Cougar football home games yielded seven and eight touchdowns respectively, resulting in 30 percent discounts on the following Tuesdays at the Campus Bookstore.  For Cougar football fans, SXU supporters and bargain hunters throughout the city and suburbs, "Touchdown Tuesdays" is a good deal, and a fine time to buy sportswear at the SXU Campus Bookstore while supplies last.

"We had to set a 30 percent limit because our Cougar team is so good," said Campus Bookstore Manager Donna Gasior.  "Otherwise we'd be giving sportswear away free!" 
 
Additional good news, according to Gasior, is that if Cougar Football qualifies for postseason play, "Touchdown Tuesdays" will advance along with the team, following any home games that might be scheduled in November and December.  

Rundown of Cougar home game results so far in this 2010 season, plus remaining home games on the schedule:
