[eCourse] Beekeeping Course: 1 Month Free Trial $0 (Then $27/Month) or $40 off Annual Sub $229 (Was $269) @ The Beekeeper


Is this a bargain? 🤔

Has anyone tried it?

One concern I have is as it is connected to Flow Hives, will there be too much of a focus on those versus traditional honey beehives and native beehives?

The free trial period lasts for 30 days.

Our site will prompt you to enter payment information in order to sign up for your free trial period. You will need to enter either a valid credit card or PayPal account. We do not charge at the time of sign up. After your free trial period expires you will be billed monthly/yearly.

Can I cancel at any time?

Yes - no contract, no cancellation fees, no commitment.

It's easy to cancel online anytime, and if you do so you will not be billed again at the end of your current billing cycle (monthly/yearly).

Learning how to take excellent care of your bees is the most important aspect of beekeeping.

    Nice but don’t forget to cancel after one month or they will sting 🐝 you with subscription fee.

    • you really do need to set a notification / reminder / alarm for these things, i've been stung so many times, i guess i'm too buzzy?

      I'm so tired of all these supposedly free trials demanding a payment method. Wish there was a law against this behaviour. It's either free or it isn't. If it is free, then payment methods shouldn't be required.

      • +2

        right!? you shouldn't have to provide it until AFTER the trial period

    • +2

      That's not how it works

      • You're right. Honey is gross.

        I much prefer the bees - crunchy!
