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 @" (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

LOVING this organized, flexible, multi-tasking planner!! I'm stress free, and my kid can tell... I can't say enough about how it has simplified things in my life and made our homeschooling SO easy to plan! It took about a week to play with it, learn it, and set up the entire year. I still don't even know everything it can do, but boy is it doing what I need now. Invaluable for keeping records. It's very intuitive, plus there are plenty of tutorials in case you don't want to learn by just playing with it like I do. If I've ever been stumpe...(more)

From being able to send a shopping list alert to hubby last minute to planning the entire school year, Homeschool Planet makes not just planning curriculum for multiple students easy, but it also puts any and every daily happening in one handy-dandy spot that I can take on the go with the quick link home icon on my iPhone. I especially love how easy it is to sync lesson plans up with the planner. It is literally just a few clicks and it's all ready to go.

Homeschool Planet has been a God-send to our homeschool! Thanks to this wonderful product I am able to stay organized (I'm organizational-challenged). At a glance, I know exactly what we will be doing each day and my children know what assignments they will be working on. My kids love it - our entire school day goes more smoothly. I love the fact that if we take a day off for an appointment we can easily move everything at once to the next day. This homeschool planner is very flexible and allows for customization, changes and alterations a...(more)

I have been looking for a way to schedule classes but also retain the flexibility to move things around. Homeschool Planet is what I've been looking for. I can schedule things online and then my kids can go online or print what they need to do for a given day or week. If something comes up (sick day) we can move things around as needed.

The Homeschool-Planet planner is absolutely amazing. My kids love the fact that it gives them the independence to know what they need to do and when it is due and I can allow them access to mark it as completed. When I log in I can see what is done and what they are behind in. I love it because they are not asking me all the time "What do I need to do?" I also use it for their chores, MY CHORES, and things I need to do for our family in general. Everything can be color coded (another feature that I LOVE!!). I am the type that at the beginn...(more)

I believe this is an excellent resource for organizing and keeping track of multiple students and an active household, as well as keeping track of a work schedule or business.

With ten children (seven school-aged and three preschoolers), I was pleased to find Homeschool-Planet is able to cope with the complexity of my homeschooling and daily life. I finally feel I can keep on top of my planning. When I need to reschedule assignments, it is simple. I can make lesson plans that I can reuse with subsequent siblings.

Homeschool Planet is the perfect tool for busy homeschoolers. Using Homeschool Planet has helped me to manage what happens in class from day to day. With Homeschool Planet I'm able to send my children daily emails with schedules and students are able to click a box letting me know they have completed an assignment. My favorite feature is the ability shift assignments forward when my child needs a little more time on a lesson. I recommend this product to any homeschool parent. It's a lesson planner, gradebook, and problem solver all in one!

Homeschool-Planet is a great product! It's easy to set up, use and update; streamlines the planning process; eliminates redundant writing out of tasks that you'd have to do with book style lesson-planners; allows you to easily see if you've overlapped schedules inadvertently; and kids get to check off what they've done already and easily see what still needs to be done. I love the reminders feature, the calendar - I'm just really glad to have found this product for all of it's great features!! I only used it for part of the past school year,...(more)

I have struggled with planning for the past 3 years. I was never able to plan out a full year of school work for my 3 kids because life happens and changes are always needing to be made. Homeschool Planet has made planning the full school year out from day one a possibility since it is so easy to make changes as we go without having to rewrite the whole plan every time! So happy with this program!!
