Be a Hero Swag Works Like Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies are cookies sold by Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) as one of its major fundraisers for local Scout units. Members of the GSUSA have been selling cookies since 1917 to raise funds. Approximately 15% of sales goes directly to the group selling the cookies. The rest of the proceeds stay in the local Girl Scout council to support Girl Scouting in that area and to the cookie manufacturer.

The Tuition Heroes Be a Hero affiliate program works the same way. We give you the opportunity to earn 20% of each sale of Be a Hero clothing and accessories. You can use the money generated to save for college, pay college expenses or pay down student loans. The rest of the proceeds allow Tuition Heroes to provide its free service.

How Does the Be a Hero Affiliate Program Work?

When a person accesses the Tuition Heroes website and makes purchases of items assigned to you, you get 20% of the sale (not including shipping, taxes and a $5.00 design fee per item).

Our Swag Shop offers a variety of Be a Hero clothing and accessories.

To participate, you just need to Become An Affilliate.

About Tuition Heroes

Tuition Heroes is a tool for parents and students to evaluate colleges based on tuition stability. And it recognizes those colleges that are responsible with their tuition increases with hopes of pressuring those that are not.

Tuition Heroes tracks annual tuition levels (including required fees) for every higher education institution in America and calculates a rolling compound annual growth rate (CAGR). The CAGR provides the year-over-year growth rate of tuition over time and describes the rate at which tuition would have grown if it grew at a steady rate. If an institution’s CAGR is 2.5% or less, they are rewarded Tuition Hero status. We use 2.5% because it’s a good approximation of the consumer price index (CPI), and tuition levels shouldn’t be growing faster than the CPI.
