Updated for Black Friday 2019
Are you a bargain hunter? I’m one of the biggest bargain hunters you’ll ever meet! Want to know what one of my favorite shows is? Extreme Couponers! 😊 It’s a bit extreme for me, but I still love watching them get cartloads of groceries for almost free. When it comes to shopping for my business and blog, I scour the internet until I find a discount code. Or I wait for Black Friday or Cyber Monday… And lucky for all of us, that time has come!
Here are all the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals I could find for the products I use and love for my editing/freelance writing business.
Work from Home Courses
Let me start with the best deal you’re going to get this Black Friday! Proofread Anywhere’s General Proofreading course is on sale from November 23 to November 26. You can get $125 off Ignite or Ignite Plus with the code DEAL19. They’ve never offered this much of a discount before, and I have it on good authority that they never will again!
I’ve taken several proofreading and editing courses, but this is the one I got the most value out of. It’s an online, self-paced course that you can easily fit around your other commitments. It gives you the opportunity to get lots of proofreading practice and even shows you how to get clients and set up your own website.
I wrote a detailed review of the course if you want to check it out.
Another amazing deal you’ll want to check out if you want to work from home is Transcribe Anywhere’s Black Friday sale. Get $100 off either/both the Legal Transcription or General Transcription courses with the code THANKS100 from November 29 to December 2.
Transcribe Anywhere doesn’t have sales very often, so take advantage while you can!
