For the Price of a Venti Caramel Frappuccino ...

I usually start my day at 5:30 at my neighborhood Starbucks. Coffee in hand, I’m frequently working on an upcoming blog post.  

I often marvel that one Animated Step-by-Step title (a product that takes me about 30 hours to complete) is about the same price as a venti Caramel Frappuccino or a venti Vanilla Macchiato. Unlike the beverage, however, an ASbySs can be used year after year … making them great value for the money.  Furthermore,  ASbySs can be displayed in a variety of formats (interactive whiteboard, large screen TV, computer monitor, iPad, adroid tablet) generalizing their use to a variety of environments (classroom, therapy room and home).

Several of the ASbyS are available in a four-title bundle, i.e., offering 4 titles for the price of 3. 

These bundled offerings ‘sweeten’ the deal.

Regular                        $3.75 rather than $5.00 per title

Symbol-Supported     $4.50 rather than $6.00 per title

The Big Thanksgiving Bundle offers a nine titles for the price of 6!

Regular                        $3.33 rather than $5.00 per title

Symbol-Supported      not offered on TpT as it exceeds their download upper limit. 
                                    Can be purchased as a download on the Animated Step-by-Steps® website 
                                    (see button link to website on upper right).

Now we’re starting to move into the range of a grande/vente coffee!

The Animated Step-by-Steps® website offers larger bundles of 100 and 50 titles ... great for schools and agencies. 

Regular                      $3.00 rather than $5.00 per title

Symbol-Supported    $4.00 rather than $6.00 per title

So next time you purchase that Starbucks drink … I hope you might be thinking … I could be purchasing an Animated Step-by-Step for almost the same cost and saving myself 30 hours of work!
