Title: Question regarding student discounts
Post by: Tim on December 10, 2008, 11:40:02 AM
Hi,
I'm interested in buying stackz and I stumbled across the "student discounts" section. It seems, it is not enough to just be a student - one has to follow a "language course" or to be a "first grade" student. I currently don't follow a "language course" and it would be difficult to prove such a thing, because everyone can follow such a course without doing anything. Besides that, as a German I am not 100% clear, when a student can be called a "first grade" student. Any clarification would be helpful.
Thanks

We try to make our tools affordable for people with little financial power who are using our tools for their studies so we lowered the price for students. The limitation to language courses is there to emphasize the intention. In addition, we try to encourage beginners (1st grade = 1st year) with a special discount, this is more a motivation boost for them than anyting else because the start is the hardest part.

Of course we are also interested in people following a course because they might then recommend our tool to their fellow students... :-)

We inspect the discount applications, if there is a doubt we contact the applicant to find out the situation and to negotiate the discount.

Besides, please also note our bigger 50% discount for anyone providing a wordlist, this is the better deal than the raw discount for anyone who is willing to share their wordlist with us.

Please do not hesitate to contact us per email if you are still not sure about your personal discount situation.
