We are glad that so many of you are taking up our fantastic discount offer of 12 CPD points for the price of 9 which is not only saving you a lot of money, but is helping you to complete your CPD requirement without leaving the comfort of your home, office or Chambers.
As this has proved so popular, we are continuing the discount, and we have been busy working on improving the ways to place your order.
Now we have a simple checkbox shopping list available if you want to buy more than one course. This works not only for our multi-buy discount offer, but if you want to buy 2 or more courses at any time. Simply log in (or register if you are a new user) and then click on Multi-buy to see the full list of courses. You can then tick the courses you want to buy all in one transaction, rather than several; and if you buy more than 9 CPD hours, the discount is applied automatically.
Of course, you can still buy your courses individually if you prefer, but we hope that the new multi-buy shopping list makes it easier for you.
We have decided to add a refer a friend feature to the site. We know a number of you have mentioned us to your colleagues already, and we wanted to give you an incentive to do more of it! We decided that the best way of doing that would be to offer your colleagues £5 off the cost of their first course, and as a thank you we'll give you £5 off your next course when they have made their first purchase.
You can refer as many people as you like, getting a £5 voucher for each person who buys, and you can redeem a voucher against each course you buy - in fact we'll do it automatically, oldest first, so that you don't forget. If you refer lots of people, you could get £5 off every course this year. In fact, we decided to give the vouchers a 2 year expiry period, so in fact you could get £5 off every course for the next 2 years. If you are such a prolific referrer that you have no chance of redeeming all of your vouchers in that time, get in touch with us at email@example.com. We'll be glad to sort it out for you.
You can keep track of vouchers that you've earned under your user details. You might not know where this is - just click on your name at the top right when you are logged in. You will then see a "Vouchers" tab.
When you refer someone, if you aren't logged in, be sure to enter the e-mail address that you log in with in the "Your e-mail" field, so that we know it's you and can give you the voucher. We will send your friend a unique link. They need to click on that when they register for us to know it's them. If they don't use that link then I'm afraid our systems have no way of matching them up to your referral. Don't worry, we make it really simple for them though.
We've worked hard to integrate the vouchers in to our payment systems. In Google Checkout, it looks great, with a line for the course and a line for the voucher. In PayPal, it wasn't that simple, and we had to remove the £5 from the total outside of PayPal. Since VAT is added on at the checkout, that makes it a lot less obvious how we got to that figure. Rest assured, the sums are correct!
As usual, we'd love to hear if you have any comments on this.
