Title: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: Lappy on March 11, 2010, 08:50:05 AM
(http://d2.brillkids.com/upload/files/Emails-ELE/images/brillkids-coupons.png)

We will soon be launching a discount system for purchasing BrillKids products in the upcoming months, where you can use your loyalty points to redeem discount coupons for BrillKids items!

Yes, this means that you will soon see discount coupons made available for the partial (or even full) redemption of Little Reader and Little Math, using your loyalty points.

However, not everyone will be able to redeem these coupons, since we will make these coupons available only to our most loyal of BrillKids members.

So who will be able to use their points to redeem these coupons?
Apart from the points requirement for redeeming the coupons, there will be a post count criteria for eligibility to access this coupon redemption program:

(http://www.brillkids.com/images/main-images/check2.png) At least 100 posts made anywhere in the BrillKids Forum
(http://www.brillkids.com/images/main-images/check2.png) At least 50 posts made anywhere in the ParentWeb Forum

(http://forum.parentweb.com)

Please be reminded though, that our general forum rules (http://forum.brillkids.com/forum-rules-plus-regulations/general-forum-rules/) on posting still apply and the number of points you earn by posting still follow our existing system (http://forum.brillkids.com/forum-how-tos-and-faqs/the-loyalty-points-system/)!

We hope this serves as an advance announcement for the BrillKids Coupon Redemption Program, to let you know that all of you can start getting your post count in both BrillKids and ParentWeb up so you can ensure your eligibility for this program ahead of time!

As always, happy teaching!

Great news! But most of us who are here for a long time already have LR and LM. If you could make the discount coupons possible with the upcoming Little Musician, that would be awesome and helpful.  :)

Thanks in advance,
Questers.

Post by: Lappy on March 11, 2010, 10:18:17 AM
Of course Questers! :) These coupons will be applicable for the whole range of BrillKids products! More on that to come, so stay tuned!


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!

Oh thank you so much! We are all eagerly waiting!  :D

Is that 100 post total or withing a certain time frame?


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: Indidee on March 11, 2010, 12:05:13 PM
This is fantastic.  Only does this mean that we can use our loyalty points ONLY if we meet with the criterion?

And I didnt understand the difference between the Brillkids forum and the Parent web forum  :mellow:


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: hypatia on March 11, 2010, 12:56:02 PM
What is the Parent Web forum?

Will we be able to use points on upcoming curriculums?


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: Seema on March 11, 2010, 01:10:01 PM
WOW thats a good news......


can one directly join parent web or need seperatae accoutn for the same.

Join parent web here http://forum.parentweb.com/

There was a message up in the forum announcements http://forum.brillkids.com/announcements/get-baby-tracker-software-for-pregnancy-and-after-birth/


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: trinity papa on March 11, 2010, 04:45:20 PM
Qn, is it either or , or is it and??

meaning you have to have 100 post on brillkids forum or (or is it and) 50 post on parent web??

Hey when ar eyou guys coming up with the chinese LR?? Will it be in simplified or traditional anyway??


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: hypatia on March 11, 2010, 05:41:26 PM
Join parent web here http://forum.parentweb.com/

There was a message up in the forum announcements http://forum.brillkids.com/announcements/get-baby-tracker-software-for-pregnancy-and-after-birth/

I did not know that. Thanks for telling.
How do you count the messages as they seem to overlap (when you post in some categories of brillkids it goes into parentweb as well?)


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: nhockaday on March 11, 2010, 06:21:14 PM
Just the pregnancy and parenting boards are showing up in both places. I would assume that posting on either forum on those boards would just count as one post.


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: Lappy on March 12, 2010, 01:56:07 AM
Hi everyone!

To clarify a few things, this is the way it will be set up:

1. The discount coupons (although not finalized yet) will span several discount tiers for several products.

        Examples: (the discount tiers can go all the way up to full 100%)
                10% discount for Little Reader = xx points
                25% discount for Little Reader = xx points
                10% discount for Little Math = xx points
                25% discount for Little Math = xx points

2. You will only have access to these coupons if you have the sufficient amount of post counts. You will need a minimum of the following:

(http://www.brillkids.com/images/main-images/check2.png) At least 100 posts made anywhere in the BrillKids Forum
                                AND
(http://www.brillkids.com/images/main-images/check2.png) At least 50 posts made anywhere in the ParentWeb Forum

3. As previously announced when we launched ParentWeb, :happy: you may sign in to ParentWeb using your BrillKids account. You don't need to make another account to register for ParentWeb if you already have a BrillKids account.

4. The difference between the BrillKids and ParentWeb community lies in the scope of the website:
                The BrillKids community's focus is on early childhood education, teaching babies and young children. :biggrin:
                The ParentWeb community is for discussions pertaining to parenting in general. :yes:

5. The post counts you make in ParentWeb - you have to go to http://forum.parentweb.com/ to make them - are counted separately from the post counts you make in BrillKids.

6. New posts made in the pregnancy and parenting boards will be counted as posts for ParentWeb, only if you make them on the ParentWeb forum site - you HAVE TO BE in http://forum.parentweb.com/ when you make them. Otherwise, they will be counted as BrillKids posts.

7. The posts you make on either forum will both add to your points, which is why you only need one account. :)

And that's it! I hope that made things clearer - so beyond this, I guess the last thing you need to do is HAVE FUN! :lol:

Post by: Kyles Mom on March 12, 2010, 05:00:46 AM
This is great as in my area there are many who cant afford it but would love to have it (they are all very impressed with Kyles progress and i do the promoting of LR all the time!!!!)

I got one question though, is there any time preriod to make these 100 posts? like if they register now and make the 100 posts within this month would it count too?


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: Lappy on March 12, 2010, 05:12:10 AM
No time period. :)

You can have your friends complete the post requirement at their convenience. :happy: Since we haven't released this discount program yet, they have some time in which they can do it. At any rate, even after we launch the discount program, they will still be able to access the discounts when they finish the post count requirement.

:yes:


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: Indidee on March 14, 2010, 12:25:57 PM
Thats really helpful Lappy... in fact I am kicking myself for not having subscribed for lifetime in the first instance.  IF ONLY someone had advised me. I am literally collecting points so I can purchase the lifetime option.
Loads of ppl in my area also have started going online.. dunno if its converting into customers yet... but my daughter is quite a surprise to every1..
Take care

Post by: Skylark on March 14, 2010, 07:34:27 PM
Great news about possibility to use our points in various ways, looking forward to that. I just hope that new language curriculums, like Chinese for example, will be possible to purchase with the points as well!  :)  And of course, waiting with the baited breath for a Little Musician!!!  Thank you all, who is working on that

Great News guys ... Really happy to have this discount back ...

People who cannot afford can definetly make use of this discoumt coupons ...

I am really excited to have this offer when I am thinking of buying LM for my kid ....


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: Gab and Karen on March 18, 2010, 01:29:48 AM
Mmm... this would be more difficult for new members isn't it? For existing members, they probably have already existing points.

For the coupons, is it limited edition type? That is, is there a "while stock last" concept?


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: KL on March 18, 2010, 03:10:13 AM
Yes, like many of our policies, it was designed to benefit long-time active members.

As to whether or not there will be limited number of coupons, this will be announced when they are released.

:)

I'm new and my english is not good.
I just know Little Reader from my friend this afternoon.
He highly recommed me to try this with my baby.
I'm appreciated to have a discount coupon.

Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: waterdreamer on March 26, 2010, 02:41:56 AM
Are we looking at this coming out in a month, 6months, a year? I'm looking at getting Little Math, but I'm holding out because this sounds like a great deal and I have a good pile of points waiting to be used :)

Yep, more discount coupons! :) Not just from us but from other product partners of ours (with more on the way!). Click on SHOP above and SPEND POINTS to see the other coupons on offer.  Points can also be used to download premium LR content.

Are we looking at this coming out in a month, 6months, a year?

Well, should either be this year or next year.
j/k...
We're looking at about 1-2 months, fingers crossed! So in the meantime, get your post counts up, esp for ParentWeb!

Lappy or KL,

I would like to know if in this promotion I can change from Little Reader LITE to the new version or should I unistall it and get only the new version?


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: Gulusgulus on April 09, 2010, 04:26:23 PM
Hi there!

   Like syvana, I'm new here and, since I'm not a native English speaker, my English is not quite good. But, anyways! Here I am. I'm about to buy LR + LM and really looking forward to using it. I hope my baby learns a lot from it. We've been using other methods with her and they seem to work but they all lack resources. It seems as if brillkids provides you with loads of material to keep working. That's awesome!!
   About the coupons...we hope to be able to make it in time. Both my husband and I will be posting like crazy!!! lol

Any idea when this promotion will be starting?


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: KL on April 24, 2010, 05:57:31 AM
As soon as we can get our shopping cart system to have a discount coupon system (we're revamping the system right now so may take another month or so). Working hard at it though!


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: waterdreamer on April 24, 2010, 05:59:46 AM
Sounds great, my son is so depressed that our Little Math trial is over. Any idea or sneek peak on how many points will equal how much present off.

You guys are terrific in always rewarding your loyal customers. I love BrillKids.

I have a favor to ask you.  Can you provide a link within the Forum Community drop down area (in the menu area above) to connect to the new forum? That would put the link at my fingertips and remind me to go there.  Also, can you put a link back to BrillKids forum in the new one?   Honestly, I'm not overly crazy about the two different forums right now, but change is always hard  :D   Having a link to easily go back and forth would ease my transition.

If I'm blind and it's already there somewhere, just set me straight :)

I'm trying to purchase the LM and LR but don't seem to see where the 10% off for mother day discount comes into play...?  Can can anyone explain?


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: Lappy on May 06, 2010, 03:49:07 AM
Hi Victoria!

The prices that are listed on our online store already have the discount applied to them (only for single payments). They are marked with "slashed prices" and amount to 10% off the product price.

To view them, simply visit our online store -

HAHAHAHA lol sorry for the wait waterdreamer! :happy:

It may take a little while to complete still (about a month maybe) because we are still developing the whole platform to make the coupons seamless with the checkout system! So sorry for the wait, but rest assured that it will be so worth it!

Lol that's ok Lappy. My son just keeps saying everytime we do LR "Not the purple one, red one please" lol. I'll let him know it will be another month or so lol.

Wow! That's great!

I know it's been asked, but maybe we know by now...any idea on how many points these coupons will cost? Just a rough idea? :)

Also, what are the projected dates for the LR Chinese and the Music curriculum?

This is great!  I wanted to buy the LM, but I have a MAC OS and decided against it as I wouldn't get the support even if I installed windows, but now this has given me more incentive to get it.

Post by: FloridaMom on June 23, 2010, 02:29:42 AM
Our trial LR and LM are over. Today was a sad day for my little one. It is a great website and I wish I found it earlier to have enough time to earn these discounts. We loved LR and I loved LM (my 21 months old was not too excited about it). And we are sorry to see them go. Thanks for a great website and an opportunity to get a discount. I guess I'll be more frequent here from now on  ;)

Hi everyone! :)

We're very sorry for the error message in the ParentWeb Forums - we are currently fixing this problem, and it is just taking a while.

The good news is, the message posting and thread creation functions are now working properly - the only thing which isn't working is the post count reflection on your forum profile for ParentWeb.

But not to worry - our forum engine is still counting your posts in ParentWeb, it's just not reflecting properly. So if you have posted or if you are going to post in ParentWeb, your profile will be updated to the correct number of posts you have made once we finish fixing the problem.

Thank you all for your patience and continued support! :happy:

Hi,

Can you please let us know atleast a tentative date of release of these coupons?

This was mention on March, being now almost ending August we have to be a little bit patient.  :wub:

KL said it was going to be before year end.

I think it is going to be as a present for my coming grand-daughter.  :yes:  :yes:

Can somebody tell me what the difference and the relationship between parentsweb forum and brillkids forum is? I see that to qualify for this offer you need to be active on both forums. I have noticed that some of the brillkids discussions also appear on parentsweb, but never actually posted anything there myself... :confused:

I'm very sorry to all of you parents out there who are being made to wait for this to come out. :blush: Needless to say, we are working on it, along with so many other features, products, builds, and sites. We announced this perhaps a trifle early, but do understand that we only did so because we will be implementing a points/post requirement for you to actually get these discounts. 

As of now, it is technically a matter of programming our current online store, checkout system, and forum shop (where you redeem your points) to work seamlessly together, and this is the bit which has the bulk of the work, so it's taking a little longer than we had originally planned. :( For this, we apologize!

But do rest assured that we will confidently have this feature out in a couple of months - for those of you who will be eligible to redeem your points for discount coupons, I will stand by KL's prediction that we will have this out before year's end. :)

I return from vacation and was afraid to miss the discount coupons since we are close to year end. Any news about them or can we have a probable date?

Hope they come soon.

Of course Questers! :) These coupons will be applicable for the whole range of BrillKids products! More on that to come, so stay tuned!
This is the discount coupons we are waiting for. Did they come out?

Sorry, not yet. Still ironing out technical problems... (long story... sigh)

still waiting... it's a good thing we don't celebrate christmas,  plus who are we kidding. it's a gift to the parents and we don't care about the exact dates, right? still, it would be nice to tell grandma that this was her gift.
cheers,
liza

 :(  :(   well i think we have to wait a little more. Patience,..... patience....

I am a grandma and this was going to be MY christmas present. ets hope that we have some luck and the store system will be ready before January 6 date when some countries celebrate  the presents given by the three kings and the magi bring the gifts instead of Santa bringing them on Christmas Eve.

yes, maybe that's what they meant before the year end... the magi. like i said, it doesn't really make that much of a difference although we are somewhat conditioned to receive and give gifts during the same period as everyone else.

Well, I do hate to be a bother as I know this has been a constant question, but when can we expect the discount coupons? :) We're all waiting very patiently, I'm sure.

I'm in the midst of the trial of Little Reader and I'm afraid that my little ones will be mad when it's all gone!

So...do we at least have a tentative date, since we're past, "year's end"?


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: lizaveta on January 09, 2011, 07:03:03 PM
yes, i think it would have been better of them not mention anything about year's end if they were not sure about keeping the promise. now everyone is nervously checking the forum just to see what's new. does anyone have any idea of how big of a discount to expect? knowing this would really help with the wait...

I do know that they originally said that it was a tiered system that would go all the way up to 100%, so maybe that will make you feel better!


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: lizaveta on January 10, 2011, 08:03:28 PM
really?
i don't remember reading anything of the sort, but you are right, it does make me feel a lot better  :biggrin:
we'll see what happens. for now i am showing home made flashcards and waiting...


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: sarahjean on January 12, 2011, 06:36:36 PM
Indeed! They mentioned it in the original announcement and then again in the clarification! Exciting, isn't it!?

Hi KL, I imagine your a BUSY man and everything, but I was just looking through the the thread and saw that you responded to someone saying that there were going to be discounts before the end of the year. I was really hoping that you could give us some sort of time frame in which the discounts might be available, if possible. I am a single mother and desperately need to take full advantage of an early learning system. I use YBCR, but she doesn't like it nearly as much as the Little Reader. ( : ( My Trail just ended! Oh what will I do??)  So PLEASE let us know if you and the rest of the team have come up with a date yet.

Thanks!!

Sorry, but we didn't foresee technical problems in implementation (long complicated story)!  That plus other things taking priority because of time/urgency factors.  We should be there soon, but I really cannot give a time frame anymore, except to say we're working at it!

When will the discounts and Little Musician be rolled out?

Let's try to get Little Musician itself rolled out first... ;)

Its been 10 onths since this thread was started.
Any idea when we are going to get any discount coupon?

For how many points , how much discount it will be?

Thanks

KL,

FYI You did not answer my question.  I had two.  When will the discounts start? and When will the Little Musician be ready?  If it was going to take you another year to role out discounts you should not have mentioned it.


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: lizaveta on January 25, 2011, 09:18:39 PM
maybe you could at least hint at the amount of the discount. say, if i were to get the packaged deal of little reader and little math, would the discount represented there be greater than getting the little reader and waiting for the discount to get the little math? i know this sounds a bit confusing, but really, you guys have been kind of vague about the whole thing.

Not only have they been vague they have been border line misleading.  They promised something 10 plus months ago and still have not delivered.  Worse then that when asked about it they give vague answers and seem to have an attitude.


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: KL on January 26, 2011, 01:47:50 AM
Hi all,

I'm sorry if some of you think we have had an 'attitude', though it puzzles me how that came across.

See, the reason why we have decided to no longer set dates and give specific answers on many things (such as this) is from hard lessons learned - which is precisely that if you do so and it does not happen, some people get annoyed.

So we have a choice:

- Give specific time frames to appease people, and bear the complaints when (as often they do) things don't happen as planned
- Be more vague about things, and bear complaints now that we're not being specific enough

Hmmm.... bear complaints NOW, or LATER?  :)

I wish there could be a third option:

- jump into a time machine, go back in time, and not have said anything in the first place (anyone have tips on how to do this?) :)

On a more serious note, all we can say (and keep saying) is that it's been something we've been working on all this while.  When do we expect to have it ready?  Well, we expected it long time ago, and almost launched it.  But technical problems came up (basically, we had to change our underlying checkout/shopping cart platform for the sake of long term stability reasons) which put us back to square one, and later on, other urgent matters came up and very rudely cut the line in the development process.  So again, when do we expect to have it ready?  I would like to say within a month or two, but I've thought that before and it didn't happen, so how can I responsibly say anymore?

What will the discounts be?  Again, we have some ideas what we think it will be now, but we often decide differently just before implementation.  If I say something now, even if I word it as loosely as possible (like "we expect", or "we hope to have it ready by" etc.), don't you think people will think that it was something we "promised" and get annoyed when it's not the case?   Also, what are the terms of getting the coupons?  How many points, and what other criteria? (cos points is not the only criteria for some of the larger discount items).  Frankly, they have not even been fully decided yet, and will only be decided shortly before launch, and will probably be changed or tweaked further just before launch.

I hope you guys will have more understanding of our predicament, and realize that sometimes, things don't go according to plan.  But you can rest assured that we are working on it and hope to get it out asap!

PS - I've tried to be as light-hearted about this as possible.  Nothing I said was intended to be flippant, so I hope no one takes it wrongly!  This has been something of concern for me for a long time too already, so you can be sure that I take it very seriously!

Hi KL,

I'm sure you have a full team already and probably have things under control, but my husband and one of my best friends are both have degrees in computer science. I also have a good friend who is a web developer who may owe me a favour or two. Let me know if there might be some way they can be of some assistance in getting the program rolled out in a timely manner. :)

Thanks so much for your generous offer, Sarahjean. Sent you a PM. :)


Title: Re: BrillKids Discount Coupons - Coming Soon!
Post by: lizaveta on January 26, 2011, 08:50:13 PM
thanks kl for such a thorough answer. i think that it would be much better to offer the discount points once these become available and you know the terms. this would have prevented all the anticipation and let down feelings some posters had. in any case, we will be waiting for more news.

Are the requirements for the acquisition of coupons (initially stated as 100 BK posts and 50 parent web posts), still going to be in place when the coupons are released?  Thanks.
