An Ultimate Guide Before Buying Udemy Course
Avoid Coupon Sites:
Search for “Udemy Discount Coupons” on Google and a million websites will pop-up. The problem is the 99.9% of these sites offer outdated/expired coupons and their sole purpose is to serve ads or get their own cookie in your browser.

Avoid Flash Buying:
Udemy offers huge cuts almost every week and the $150 course you are looking to buy could be available for as low as $10 the next day, or even the next hour.
Do not make ‘impulse’ buy on Udemy. Add the Udemy course to your wish list or place it in your shopping cart and you could soon have an email from Udemy itself saying that course has gone on sale.
Support the Instructor:
Udemy has a simple revenue-sharing deal with instructors. If the instructor brings the student to Udemy through their own links, Udemy’s order is mere 3% of the sale price. If a student finds a course by directly searching on Udemy, the instructor’s share is only 50% of the sale.
Check the blog, Twitter or Facebook pages of the Udemy teacher. Buy the course through links shared by Udemy professors on their social media pages and you’ll be indirectly helping them as they’ll get most of the sale proceeds.
Use Browser, Not Mobile Apps:
You can buy Udemy courses on their website or through their mobile apps. The interesting thing is that the same course may be priced differently depending on the platform you are on. It’s just like some airline company showing higher prices to people who are browsing on an iPhone.
I simultaneously searched for React.js courses on Udemy on iOS, Android, and Chrome and the prices varied everywhere. The prices displayed were lowest when I opened Udemy on the desktop in Chrome’s incognito mode.
lastly, I recommend that you should never buy Udemy courses at the list price and always use a desktop to complete the purchase. They apparently have to purchase Google / Apple a share in the sale and hence the courses are priced higher inside Udemy’s mobile apps.
