Whether you find yourself super busy every day and could use a little “me time” or currently find yourself with a ton of time on your hands MasterClass allows you to take super interesting online classes from some of the best teachers in the world in a variety of topics. And, yes, your teacher can most likely be a celebrity or well-known pro!
I heard about MasterClass a couple of years ago, gave it a test drive, and loved how intimate and personal it felt. Since it was so easy to do (and pretty fun) I recommended their classes (via gift cards) in a wide variety of our most popular gift guides for men, women and, yes, even grandparents and parents. These classes quickly became some of our most popular gift recommendations of the year.
Since then, there are so many more online classes you can sign up for in a ton of different categories like:
- Film & TV
- Cooking, Baking & Grilling
- Sports & Games
- Business, Photography & Fashion
Some of the more popular and well known teachers include the likes of Natalie Portman, RuPaul, Judd Apatow, Helen Mirren, Shonda Rhimes, Gordan Ramsay, Wolfgang Puck, Bob Iger, Judy Blume, Steph Curry, Simone Biles, Neil Degrasse Tyson, Mariah Carey (!!) and so many more!
There are currently more than 85 classes to choose from with an average of 20 lessons per class and each lesson averages just 10 minutes! So there is plenty of learn, each lesson is easy to digest, and you’ll always have the time to get through it.
Currently you can snag an all access class pass for just $180/year (you can break it down to $15/month) and you’ll gain access to all the classes, which is pretty great! So it was the perfect time to think ahead for a gift idea for that special someone.
Speaking of promos, MasterClass doesn’t offer coupon codes or promo discounts, especially from other sites. Therefore, I always recommend to go direct to them because right on their homepage they’ll let you know of any current promotions they’re offering (if they are).
Other than that, we can’t recommend them enough. They’re great for just about anyone and, honestly, they make such a unique gift idea…and you don’t even have to leave your house to buy it for someone. Even better!
MASTERCLASS PROMO OFFERS - December 2023
Masterclass now offers a really generous family plan for only $23/month (billed annually) where a family can have one account, but watch classes on up to 6 different devices. This is currently their best value plan and, the best part, no promo code or coupons needed. Reveal more here!
DOES MASTERCLASS OFFER PROMO CODES & COUPONS
I wanted to answer this one specifically because people always ask, especially when we list MasterClass in our gift guides.
At this time, no MasterClass doesn’t give out coupons of any kind – and we’ve been analyzing this for more than 3 years. In the past, typically around the holidays, they sometimes offer a Buy 1, Get 1 Free promotion. However, you don’t need a discount code to take part in this offer.
ARE THERE STUDENT / TEACHER DISCOUNTS
Similar to their overall discount code policy, at this time MasterClass does not offer students or teachers their own code. If that changes in the future, this article will be updated.
DOES MASTERCLASS OFFER A FREE TRIAL
When it comes to freebies, Masterclass doesn’t really offer a free trial – at least not in the way you may be thinking.
However, they’re so confident that you’re going to love your classes and your subscription that they do offer a 30-day money-back guarantee.
