Re: Language Programmes - Offers, Sales and Discounts

Repetitive post: This morning, I received several Emails from Simon & Schuster announcing their offer of the Pimsleur Premium courses at a 50% discount. This sale ends at midnight, 13 August 2018.

It is not clear to me whether this sale is open to past customers only.

My suggestion to anyone who is not a past customer, who wishes to avail themselves of these discounts, would be that they try to negotiate with Simon & Schuster. For example, one could request that the discount be applied to their purchase. If this does not work, perhaps an agreement could be reached whereby one would purchase something of lesser value now with the written understanding that they would receive Pimsleur's offer of a 50% discount the next time that the publisher makes this offer which would likely be in about three months. Good luck with your negotiations!

Ah, good question! :D. It's a language learning software made up of videos with text. Ranges from beginner 1 to advanced 2.

It's online and on iOS. They're still working on getting it to Android.
