Discounts and vouchers for creatives in times of crisis.
The List (Last update: 2020-04-04)
- The following libraries offer parts of their collection in digital format for educational purposes.
- Adobe has made its Creative Cloud available for home use for students whose university offers on-campus licensing. If you are currently on a personal account like me and not legible for the offer you can still save some money. Simply cancel your account and at the end of the process they will offer you two months for free.
- ToDoist: The productivity app offers discounts on its ToDoist Business plan. students 70% off, nonprofits get 50% off.
- Picter offer a variety of discounts to help you work and collaborate from home. From 50% for teams up to 100% for universities and non-profit organisations.
- Foam Magazine offers free access to their digital archive.
Over the last couple of days I received plenty of emails from companies who offer substantial discounts in the face of the corona virus. While national support programs for companies and regular employees are rolled out, many students, artists and creative freelancers feel left behind. I want to to use this page to collect discounts especially aimed at them. This won’t pay your rent, but it will hopefully provide some fiancial relief.
How to submit
PM me on instagram corona.discount or send an email to email@example.com. Provide a link and a brief description. Do your research! Make sure what you share is trustworthy. No one needs malware and spam right now.
What I’m looking for
1. Companies and services that offer SUBSTANTIAL discounts aimed at creatives. Software, things that help you work from home, supplies etc.
2. Entertainment. Just because you are stuck at home does not mean you should work all day. I’ll ocassionally share entertainment (NOT youporn) so you can take a break.
What I’m NOT looking for
1. General sales discounts. Please don’t submit “10% off if you spend 100€”.
2. Restricted access. I want to share discounts that are available to everyone. Its frustrating to scroll through a ton of posts that don’t apply to you. If your discount only applies to architecure students under the age of twenty in Texas, better share it locally.
3. Loans and credits. Debt is never a good thing in my opinion (though sometimes unavoidable). I’m not an expert on finances so I don’t want to advertise for those services.
4. National support programs. There are way to many to provide an overview.
5. Anything suspicious. If you would not use it, don’t advertise it. There is already malware out there which hooks you with fake discounts and then steals your data.
