About Our Sales
Every Great Course goes on sale at least once a year at up to 70% off its standard price. This revolving sales approach allows you to get both great value and great service. Here’s how: Producing large quantities of only the Great Courses currently on sale keeps our manufacturing and inventory costs down.
More important: We get to pass these savings on to you. This approach also enables us to fill your order immediately: 99% of all orders placed by 2:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time ship that same day.
To find out which courses are currently on sale, please check our catalogs, emails, or the Special Sale section on our website.
