Added 100+ discounts to Weekend Club, for free 😱

I'm in a generous mood, so added a tonne of discounts to the Weekend Club membership.

We teamed up with joinsecret.com to provide a bunch of special offers, all within the same subscription.

Members now get:

$5,000 credit on AWS
$2,000 credit on Airtable
$4,000 credit on Freshworks
$500 credit on Bubble
12 months free on Sendgrid
6 months free on Typeform
...And much more 😃

If you too enjoy important and free stuff, plus an awesome Indie Hackers community to build your business with, start a free trial at weekendclub.co 🔥

    Did I get it right ? A member pays 29 Gbp / month and gets 5000 usd in AWS credit ? What’s the catch ?

      They get all of these offers included in the price of the subscription, not just the AWS credits:

      No catch, Secret's business model is to offer software-bundles-as-a-service to communities/companies like Weekend Club. So I pay them for my members to get access to the exclusive discounts, which helps with my retention/conversion.

      This is new for me, so I'm going to see how it goes. If people just join for 1 month (after the 30 day free trial) for the discounts then leave, I'll adapt it so it's more like 3 months.

    Great idea for the two of you to team up!

    Nice...do people get all the offers that JoinSecret offers?

    1. 1

      Yup, everything on there's included :D

    How does this work, do you need to pay 29 GBP on behalf of each person who signs up for a benefit, or you just pay 29 GBP and it's available to all your subscribers? Curious about this!

      I'd rather not divulge how much I pay Secret, but I will say that it's worthwhile to improve retention and conversion from free trial to paid.

      I'm going to monitor things though. If I see a bunch of people signing up for 1 month to get some discounts then leave, I'll make it more like 3 months+

      1. 1

        No problem, just wondering exactly how the model works! Curious to hear how it works out for you :)

        1. 1

          For a little more detail, I pay Secret for each of my members who signs up to them, after which they can access all deals.

          So I don't give people access while on a 30 day free trial, it's only after they pay for their first month that they can get a Secret account, to incentivise conversion to paid.

          I imagine in a few months it'll be structured a little differently, and will share my findings on here :D

            Very cool, makes sense. Looking forward to hear your update in a few months :) Thanks for the explanation.

    How much does it cost?

    1. 1

      £29 per month, and we do a 30 day free trial. 😊
