*FREE Straighterline Labs, AP, and $3/credit classes through 6/3/17*

If you currently have an active Straighterline account – I want to share an unexpectedly great deal I just discovered today!

As you may know, there is a current Straighterline code through June 3rd for $50 off (enter code Homeschool50 at checkout.)  I used it for #2 son, but not #3, because #3 won’t have time to complete another class before summer break and I hate wasting time just as much as wasting money.

On a whim, I called Straighterline and asked what would happen to a class that I purchased now but we didn’t get to use.  They told me it would sit in our account FOREVER.  I wasn’t sure she understood my question, so I clearly explained that we were closing our account for summer vacation.  She assured me that purchased courses are in our a=jumpccount forever, will never expire, and will never disappear when we close our account.  So, in the fall, if I reactivate his account, it would be ready and be waiting for him to pick up where he left off!

What that means:  Active members (those currently paying the $99/month fee) should purchase one of the following courses using the HOMESCHOOL50 code before June 3rd or before your account membership expires- whichever happens first.   This short list contains the least expensive SL courses, that when the code is applied, brings the cost down to $0 – $9 each!!  That price is not per credit, it’s for the ENTIRE course PLUS the required e-book/textbook. The code can only be used one time per account.

Note:  Non-subscribers or inactive members can do everything in this post, but you’ll have to pay to restart your subscription fee ($99) so this is NOT a good deal unless you were already planning to enroll your student at this time. In addition, you should know about the pros and cons of using SL in your homeschool.  See this post to get started:  Straighterline Basics and explore manyStraighterline posts by clicking the Straighterline tab.

  1. I’m not for sure if it would be true of this promo code or not, but we found out this last month that there is a limit to how many promo codes you can use in a month. We did the initial sign-up code with $50 off a course when paying for your membership in the same cart. Then when that course was done, we used the EZSAVE code, and then after that course was done and we went to purchase another, nothing would work for a code. I tried several. I found a thread on degreeforum that was basically saying the same thing (that two codes a month will work, but not the third). I eventually gave up and decided that $235 for nine credits in one month was not a bad deal,* even if we couldn’t score just one more code. The second son may start a membership again soon though, and it will be good to have another discount code on hand! Thanks, Jennifer!

    *As a disclaimer, I’m not trying to brag here. We’ve had our fair share of less-than-efficient use of Straighterline. The first time we used Straighterline we were totally oblivious to the logical consequences of letting a course take too long, and we payed over $400 for just *one* lab credit. OH MY. Live and learn!

    1. Katedrzy, I think we have similar stories! My oldest completed 3 SL courses in 2012-2013 that took us MONTHS. I didn’t plan well, wasn’t efficient, and one of those courses was their pre-writing course (no college credit). So, I learned the hard way to be sure. With my current hs senior, he does 1 class at a time, and I allow him to fast-forward and even skip lessons that he finds boring or too lengthy. I did not allow my oldest that autonomy, but despite this change in approach, my son is doing great- has passed every course so far. He’s in his 11th course right now and has 8-9 more to go. (yes, he plans to attend one of their partner colleges)
      As for codes, the HOMESCHOOL50 code they gave us works for current or new enrollments, however, in *my* experience, I found that you can’t do multiple codes in a transaction, so if you were buying 2 courses and had codes for each, you might try doing them individually and see if that works. Also, I couldn’t get the EZSAVE to work, but I contacted them via chat and the agent pushed it through for me so that’s something else to try. Since you mention IC, I’m sure you’ve read threads over there about stopping membership, that can reset codes too- though I’m never quite 100% sure that won’t mess something up, so I haven’t tried it.
      Have a great Easter, thanks for following and commenting!!
