I didn't start getting into shopping during Black Friday until recently. I still have not actually gone to a store on Black Friday--the fear of trampling has always kept me away. However, I have embraced the shopping tradition now that I can do it from the comfort of my own couch. I've done some digging and have compiled my favorite holiday deals (or soon to be announced deals) from my favorite resources. Let's dig in--from the comfort of our couches!
My Top Ten Favorite Holiday Deals
Super Duper 20% off ASHA sale: Code 2019ASHA
This isn't Black Friday specific but the coupon code is only valid until 11/30 so this is a great time to update your material bag (or virtual material bag if you're a Blink Session user).
Private Practice Bundle by Jana Castro-Casbon
This one is on my "favorite list" because it's an amazing tool for therapists in private practice who are navigating necessary forms, marketing, etc. This amazing Black Friday bundle includes over 25 templates that speak to legal needs (e.g. HIPAA notice) and includes the social media content calendar. Check out the list of all that's included here.
Target: 50% off games
According to Target's Black Friday sneak--the following games will be 50% off: "Throw Throw Burrito, Mr. Pop, Home Alone Game, Watch Ya Mouth Ultimate, Disney Frozen II Surprise Slides, Lucky Ducks, Torch Run, Shark Bite, Disney The Lion King Pumba Pass, Say Anything, Dragon Snacks and Charles Wysocki 300 large pieces puzzle." Hello, future reinforcements!
Speech Therapy PD: Continuing Education sale
I truly enjoy SpeechTherapy PD as a continuing education option: interactive and engaging videos, podcasts, founded by an SLP and they provide ASHA reporting. According to their team, any therapist that signs up for the mailing list will receive a "significant discount" on Cyber Monday! You can do that on this page. It's just in time for getting last minute CEUs completed before renewal time. **victory dance**
Teachers Pay Teachers
Teachers Pay Teachers has not announced yet BUT historically they have given some sort of Black Friday or Cyber Monday discount. Keep your eye to TPT and get some great resources that also support fellow therapists. My favorite therapist-run TPT stores: The Whimsical Word and Crazy Speech World.
Swivel Scheduler: Discount Code for Black Friday Featured on IG!
Schedule your students, add their goals, automatically get a generated schedule AND get this great resource at a discounted rate on Black Friday! This is a wonderful tool for therapists with large caseloads and a significantly large amount of goals to keep track of. Navigate over to Swivel Scheduler's Instagram on Black Friday for that discount code and enjoy some peace of mind.
TheraPro: Knocking some prices down to 1999 Prices on Mondays/Thursdays
TheraPro online is turning the big 2-0 and to celebrate they're knocking down the prices on certain products to the price that they were in 1999. To stay updated, check their Facebook on Mondays/Thursdays until December 19th!
I love Lakeshore Learning products--as a therapist and as a parent. If you're interested in purchasing gifts for loved ones that are also educational in nature, this is a one-stop shop. Lakeshore has stated they are doing Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals and will be announcing it shortly on Facebook. Cliff hanger!
iPad and Tablets: Technology for Therapy
It may be because I was a teletherapist, but I incorporate my iPad into 85% of therapy. If you're like me and need a technology upgrade OR you'd like to incorporate more technology into therapy, now is a great time to purchase that tablet. Best Buy has iPads up to $100 off, Target has Galaxy's $60 off--there's several options. Personally, I recommend the iPad ESPECIALLY if you're providing teletherapy and can screen share to an iPad---therapy.game.changer.
Total Wine: Save 10% and Treat Yourself
You deserve it. Treat yourself. If anyone questions it, tell them there was a deal!
