1-Year Prepaid Creative Live Creator Pass for $129 total

The sale is back! A great educational companion during the COVIDalia season, Creative LIVE is offering their 1-Year PrePaid “Creator Pass” subscription for $129. You pay this upfront, and you have 12 months access to almost every class on their website, Netflix-style. You can watch as much or as little whenever you want… This comes out to $10.50 per month, cheaper than Netflix or HBO Mad Max 🙂

If you prefer to pay monthly with a 1-year commitment you pay $15 per month which comes out to $180. So you’d save $51 by prepaying. The true month to month option is $39 per month, which makes financial sense if you have 30 days of downtime and then you’ll be busy… Going two months month-to-month = $78, at which point you are probably too close to $129 not to get the annual plan.

The Exclusions can be found at the Excluded page. These are excluded due to prior agreements/arrangements with their creators…
