Q: What's a "GroupBuy?"

A GroupBuy is a time-limited offer where, by purchasing as a group, members looking for discount homeschool curriculum and supplies can earn exceptionally deep discounts on selected educational products for their homeschools.

For example: In a recent GroupBuy for art curriculum, members started out with a 30% discount. When we collected 16 orders, everyone got a 40% discount. We ended up with over 80 orders, and as a result everyone received a 50% discount! So, it pays to tell your friends!

Q: How do I participate in GroupBuys?

When we have a GroupBuy ready for you, we will publish it on this page and send an email notification to members that have subscribed to "Special Offers" at their My Profile page.

We will give you a way to place your order on a special, secure order form. The Co-op does NOT take your money. We simply act as your purchasing agent. But you must get your order in by the cut-off date.

When order volumes reach certain published quantities, all participants get the associated volume discount, whether they buy one item or many, and whether they were the first person to order or the last. We notify all participants when prices drop.

When the cut-off date and time arrives, we stop taking more orders, give the merchant your order information, and they take it from there. The transaction is between you and the GroupBuy merchant.

Q: Is a GroupBuy like an eBay auction?

No! It's the opposite of an eBay auction!! On eBay, you don't want other buyers around, because they will drive your price UP! But with a GroupBuy, similarly like how schools get a discount on books, you want other buyers to participate because they can drive your price DOWN! So, it pays to tell your homeschool friends and homeschool groups if you want to save money!

Q: Will you notify me when you have a GroupBuy?

Only if you sign up for "Special Offers" at the My Profile page. Select "Please email me all Co-op special offers" if you want to hear about every GroupBuy. There aren't that many, so you aren't going to be deluged with emails.

Also, be sure you add "offers @ homeschoolbuyersco-op.org" (without spaces) to your email address book. Otherwise, your well-meaning spam filter will ensure that you don't find out about these great deals while you are looking for discount homeschool curriculum and supplies

I am really liking this planner. We have been using it since mid-August, and it is working for us. It's not overly complicated like some, but has just enough of what we need to keep a record of what we are doing. And it is helping both my teenage son and myself stay on track!

We switched to Homeschool-Planet this year after three years of using another homeschool planning program. We are delighted at the easy-to-use format, the edit-friendly options, and the flexibility of scheduling classes and making schedule adjustments.

During our first afternoon using the planner, we received multiple customer service emails because the technician working that afternoon noticed that there were problems we were encountering. He continued communicating with us and helping with our set-up process and learning time.

Last year I decided to try homeschool-planet for the thirty days free trial. During that time my children had access to it, and used it for the first month of school. When it came time for me to make the decision, I asked for their opinion...was it worth the money we would spend to keep it? I received an overwhelmingly unanimous, YES! They love being able to keep an online account of their daily activities, and being able to click the box when completed gives then a sense of satisfaction! I love being able to have one place to keep it all toget...(more)

I was a beta-tester for Homeschool Planet and I quickly fell in love with it. First, it is different from other homeschool planners. This is the first one that does not bring religion into the planner. For my family, it gives us the flexibility to add Jewish holidays to the homeschool calendar. The planner is flexible enough to fit every homeschool family. I love that I can put in everyone's schedule, so I know when I can schedule field trips. With my oldest son and husband working full time, another in college full time and my youngest in home...(more)

I have used several homeschool planning systems, both stand alone and online. Homeschool Planet is by far easier to set up, easier to use and keeps our homeschool running efficiently. My 9 year old son loves it and can follow along with his assignments with ease. We have finally found a program that we are sticking with. Thanks so much for coming up with this planning helper!

I have been using Homeschool Planet for about a month. Planning is easy, consistent and flexible. Homeschool Planet also has a grade transcript planner that does the transcripts for you. This is something I was afraid to do before especially for my high school student. I wasn't sure how to do transcripts but now it is automatically calculated. It also allows space for you to place accomplishments so you won't forget them on college applications.

Making changes to the schedule is easy. You no longer have to erase or change an entire class p...(more)

Wow! What a well thought out and wonderfully designed planner. This program is simple enough to get your planning done quickly and thoroughly without the discouraging learning curve of other, more cumbersome programs. For the first time ever, I actually have lesson plans completed right through our New Year break! Additionally, our children are able to work without interruption to their schedule even when I had to stop for medical treatment. This program sends daily and weekly work notifications to me, my students, and even dad (who can no...(more)

After having tried every homeschool planner I could get my hands on, including the online My Well Planned Day, I reluctantly went back to using Word and Excel for planning and record-keeping. Because I work in the elearning industry and live in the clouds so to speak, this was particularly discouraging.

But that was before I enrolled in your beta. Homeschool Planet is JUST what I was looking for. It's simple-to-use, flexible, and makes monitoring student progress so much easier. I love it! The kids enjoy checking off their work, and I a...(more)

I actually had practically run out of the 30 days to look it over, having only 2 days. After 48 hours I knew our family ABSOLUTELY NEEDED it to organize our home. We have 8 children plus a Chinese exchange student for the year. I always wrote everything out by hand and it was a nightmare to say the least. Now all my family's curriculum is on the planner, their clubs, no more missed activities:) The best part of it all is that it is e-mailed to all I have indicated daily and my husband is very aware of everyone's daily schedule. I was able to p...(more)

I have homeschooled for many years now and I have found Homeschool Planet to be a brilliant planner. The ease of changing your schedule is wonderful. With a few clicks, all of our assignments can be shifted. The amount of time this planner saves will surprise you. Also, the customer service is great. When I've asked a question, I usually get a reply the same day. We will definitely continue using Homeschool Planet until we are completely finished with homeschooling. You could search for free programs or you could spend quite a bit of mone...(more)
