Hello there, arifkhanadvisory.

 

I'm glad to share some information about the prices and discounts offered for the QuickBooks Online subscriptions.

 

Currently, the discount offered in the website is 70% off for the first 3 months. Any discounts offered in the website may change from time to time. That being said, rates depends on each subscription's original rate and any discounts. 

 

I'm adding this article for more information about the subscription's pricing: Understand your QuickBooks Online subscription rate.

 

Let me know if you still have other questions or clarifications about it, I'll be here to answer them. Have a good one!

You have explained why rates change from time to time but my question was why the prices charged through QBOA invitation do not correspondingly change. - Should the client ignore the QBOA email and instead purchase directly from your website?

 

Secondly, as the special is about to expire, does the client have to choose between taking advantage of the discount and the free trial month?

 

Please answer these specific queries, as canned replies will not do.

Looking forward to your kind assistance.
