There seems to be a secret sale every January. If you sign up in late December or early January but don’t do the lifetime sale, they’ll email you a discount code for 50% off a monthly or annual subscription.
In my case, I signed up on Jan 1 and got the following email on Jan 9. After searching the forums, I see several other users that reported similar promotions in previous Januaries.
You didn’t go for the Lifetime sale. I get it. You probably wanted to finish up the three free levels first. That’s smart! You should definitely still do that. By the end of Level 3, you’ll understand how the mnemonics and review timings of WaniKani work together. WaniKani, as a system, will begin to make sense.
But, when you do get to Level 3, I have a coupon for you. Use the code ---- when you’re signing up for a monthly or annual subscription to get 50% off your first year. You just have to use it by January 31, 2020. That means you have a little over three weeks to get through Level 3. I think you can do that, though.
