so i thought my post went thru but looks like it didnt so here i am again. I've loved using the flash cards for ninja. i got the 10 point combo for BEC and FAR a few months ago and at the time there was still a fix for flash cards in the works so i went ahead and bought the month membership and just loaded BEC and FAR flash cards all at once. i figured by the time i was ready to move onto my next tests in a few months that there would be a fix. flash forward to today…and theres nothing. i haven't seen an update or anything. at the least can we get an update every month or so? or at least deduct the cost of whatever the flashcards are factored into the ten point combo and reduce the 10 pt combo by the price of the flashcards until theres a fix…? I know theres also tons of server issues and the 10 pt combo is already drastically reduced prices, or for better words, jeff can definitely charge higher prices and we would all still buy his stuff. but still its better to be told something definitely won't be working so theres not just one of the ninja products kinda dangling out in the air with no real concrete answer for its futureSeptember 29, 2016 at 10:25 am #848355Jeff Elliott, CPAKeymaster
I haven't sold the flashcards since January since there wasn't a solution in place with Brainscape and I didn't want a bait-and-switch type of thing where it's like “surprise! Now you have to buy brainscape!” so I opted to not sell them. They also aren't part of the free ninja demos.
I decided to include them with the combo vs leave them out…I still think that was the right decision…I figured I would let the customer decide.
re: Brainscape – I have a deal in place with them – just finalized it…we are now working on polishing them up for the brainscape platform because in the future – instead of messing with csv files – it will be part of the brainscape platform and offerings and if you have iOS – it will be seamless.
For Android – you can still use the brainscape site to practice on your phone, I believe.
I know I didn't exactly answer your question – but I hope I shed some light.September 29, 2016 at 4:03 pm #848599
For anyone wondering, I messaged brain scape and said “hey I spent $10 for a monthly membership because I wanted to test it out. I decided I liked the product and want to buy a full year membership. Since I spent $10 already can you reduce the annual membership from $35 to $25?” And they said we can give you 20% off and gave me a codeSeptember 29, 2016 at 5:12 pm #848638RE2PECTParticipant
What I did was pay for the one month subscription and uploaded all the ninja flashcards. When the month was up I cancelled my subscription and I still have access to all of them. Only difference is there's certain premium options I can't use, but it's good for what I need.September 29, 2016 at 7:16 pm #848706
I would've done that but I didn't have the money at the time to buy all four sections at once. So now I'm getting a full year at $28 so hopefully I'll be done by this time next yearMarch 16, 2017 at 5:26 pm #1514436LexiParticipantMarch 16, 2017 at 5:44 pm #1514442Jeff Elliott, CPAKeymaster
I should be selling them standalone soon on this site…might be a week or so.
What would be a fair price for 3 mo access? (Similar to the MCQ … can be renewed).March 16, 2017 at 7:18 pm #1514497LexiParticipant
Oh wow that's great news! Thanks!! Will they be available on iphone and android devices too? I think $75 wasn't bad if all the sections were included and at a year membership but for separate sections and 3 month subscription…I don't know…$15-$20?? Either way I would totally pay whatever to help me pass this test!!!and that I can have on my phone. But help our pockets out! 🙂March 21, 2017 at 9:43 am #1517605LLin89Participant
Is there an update on the flashcards? I was hoping to get a passing score on REG this morning, but alas I went down from a 74 to a 73. This is my last section, and I have got to knock this bad boy out next time!March 22, 2017 at 9:46 am #1519636diabloargentinoParticipant
Jeff – how much would the set of 4 be? If so – maybe 1/3 of that price for just 1 section? (as incentive to get all 4 if needed). Generally speaking – I think $15-$20 seems reasonable relative to the price of other products.
