We have decided to increase the price for The PM PrepCast per January 1st, 2012. The price will be increased from currently $99.97 to new $129.99 per single-user license. The price for our other products will remain the same at this time.
The primary reason for the increase is that customers and business partners alike kept telling us (for years) that the PrepCast is really an incredible bargain for the quality it offers. There is no comparable program on the market. We therefore see this price increase as a move to bring cost and quality of our course somewhat closer together. If you compare it to other PMP prep classes you will have to agree that it is still “a steal” for what it offers.
In the history of The PM PrepCast this is only the third price increase. We originally started at $24.99, went up to $49.99 shortly after and have been at $99.97 since 2009. (Our roadmap also foresees a price increase in 2013 when the new PrepCast for PMBOK 5 will be released.)
To help “soften the blow” of the price increase somewhat, we will also be promoting a discount coupon alongside the increase. The discount coupon will be valid all of January 2012 and offer a $20 discount. In that way, customers can apply the coupon to their purchase in the first 30 days.
The price increase will also be announced on the PM PrepCast order page starting late November 2011.
