  12. Pricing and Membership

    BFS is a membership-based website. As such, you are a member as long as you are paying a monthly membership fee to remain in the community. Monthly membership fees are subject to change. Current fees can be found on the Business Finishing School registration form.

    All members have the option to become a black-belt member. As a black-belt member you are prepaying the balance of your four-year membership in full at a discounted rate, forgoing the month to month fees and opting in to pay in full at a discounted rate. Becoming a black-belt member does not change the expiration date of your membership. Each membership has an expiration date of 48 months from the date of registration of the program.

    After you've receive all four years of course materials and your membership expires, you have the option to remain in the community, and have access to all modules and membership perks, for $47 per month.

  13. Terms and Conditions of The Business Finishing School Black Belt Program

    Business Finishing School ("BFS"), offers the opportunity for you to become a "Business Black Belt" according to the following progression.

    Many BFS members have asked if they can pre-pay in order to buy all four years of the program up front. In essence, you would be pre-paying for your black belt, which increases your commitment to the cause.

    Below are the conditions for this black belt program.

    1. To calculate the cost of your Black Belt, simply subtract 30% off your remaining four-year balance due, which is the number of months remaining, multiplied by the prices per month above. As an example, if you're new to the program, and you wanted to buy a black belt, you would pay:

    12 months x $229 = $2,748
    +12 months x $147 = $1,764
    +12 months x $  97 = $1,164
    +12 months x $  97 = $1,164
    Total = $6,840
    Subtract 30% discount = $2,052
    Your New Total Payment = $4,788*

    *You also have the option to spread this new payment of $4,788 over 3 payments (over a total 90-day period which starts at the beginning), so you would have 3 payments of $1,596 each.

    Remember, if you've been in the program for a while, you can use this same formula to calculate your remaining balance, and subtract 30% to get your "Black Belt" discount amount.

    1. If at any point during your first year in this black belt program, you decide to cancel your black belt membership, your membership immediately reverts back to regular prices, and you will be entitled to a refund of your balance, once all regular monthly tuition is subtracted from your total paid, at the original, pre-discounted monthly prices. In order to get a refund, you must email Ashleigh Mooney at amooney@BusinessFinishingSchool.com.
    2. There are no refunds of any kind after 12 months in this program.
