Why Everyone Should Become A Member Of Homeschool Buyers Co-op, Even If You Don't Homeschool



Have you ever heard your friend tell you about an app their child uses from their school that you don't have access to because it's only through a school license? Well, Homeschool Buyer's Co-op acts as a school. Tons of parents across the country come together as members(for free) looking for products that are typically only given to schools. The products are offered at a discounted price and then the more people that buy in to get the product the lower the price drops. You can check out the "last call" section to see buy ins that are ending and see how discounted they are. For example, an annual subscription to Education City is retail $720. It is for PreK through 6th grade and offers multiple subjects including math, language arts, science, and more. It is currently only $49.95 for a year. Check out a video and more information here: Education City

My daughter attends public school, but I buy in to products I couldn't get otherwise. It's great for the summer or during the school year if your child isn't taking to the products offered by their school...or if your school doesn't offer anything. Most items are apps or computer programs, but there are some shipped products like workbooks or downloadable resources.

Here are some products we've tried and enjoyed:

Kumon Workbooks Grades PreK-8

Save 30%

IXL Online

Save 25% on annual subscription; multiple subjects

Good for review as it tests knowledge
