Discounts

All known discount codes at this time: 

Amazon Prime:  for COLLEGE STUDENTS.  (Free shipping on textbooks, streaming video) If your teen is dual enrolled AND has a college ID, they can join Amazon Prime for 50% off the regular membership.  (Note: they generally let you renew for at least 2 years at this rate)  Amazon Prime student discount

Other Amazon deals:   Amazon Prime free 30-day trial.


Straighterline  (Learning on Demand & College Credit) In my experience, using a SL code is tricky.  Some codes require the purchase of a membership in your cart (meaning they won’t work if your membership is currently active), others require you to be a current member buying a course or two, and others work only for new members. 

Also, a code only works once per person.   You can use multiple codes if you use multiple transactions. (if you took two science courses, you could use two different codes at different times.)  StraighterLine Registration, In short, try EVERY CODE IN THIS LIST before you give up and pay rack rate.
