1&1 Online Accounting has pretty convincing prices already, but thanks to the company’s promotional offers they can be reduced even further. By simply selecting the yearly payment option instead of paying month by month, all new subscribers to 1&1 Online Accounting can enjoy their chosen pricing plan with a discount of 50% for the duration of a whole year. And if that’s not enough, there is 1&1’s referral program, through which you can earn up to $60 in commission for inviting friends and acquaintances.
It doesn’t happen often that GoDaddy has a promotion for its accounting software since its $4.99 per month subscription price is already rock bottom. Another significant price motivation is the flexibility offered by the low-priced three pricing plans, and above all the savings you can get by choosing for annual billing. Unlike other companies, GoDaddy doesn’t offer a trial version of GoDaddy Bookkeeping, which makes it a difficult option for those who may want to try out the software before buying it.
FreeAgent completely trusts its standard pricing strategy; therefore it is very rare that it offers coupons or promotions. However, there are times when the site rewards those who are signing up within a certain period of time – for instance for a period of a month – with a price deduction. If you remain a FreeAgent client after the 30-day trial period and you choose the monthly subscription, you only have to pay half of the monthly fee for half a year, or, in the case of the annual subscription, half the price for one whole year.
Like many software intended for smaller businesses and sole proprietors, Kashoo is rarely discounted through coupons or promotions. The company mostly focuses on its standard pricing strategy, which by the way is quite good. However, during tax times, Kashoo offers new clients to buy the software with an up to 66% price reduction for the first year of use – but only if you decide to choose the annual subscription. Other promotions may include a discount if you recommend Kashoo to someone, or if the software is recommended to you by an existing client.
If you are a FreshBooks user you have one option to save some money: by using the free trial combined with a money back guarantee.

Furthermore, if your free trial has expired but you still want to cancel your subscription, you can do that within 30 days and even be entitled to receive a full refund.
The only visible discount available at QuickBooks comes at a rather great price. If you are willing to skip the 30-day trial period, you can get a 20% discount from your monthly subscription for the duration of 1 year when subscribing for the Simple Start pricing plan. The discount exists for the other products as well: you get a 50% discount for 1 year if you choose the Self-Employed subscription, and 30%-40% discounts respectively for 6 months if you are subscribing for the Essential or the Plus versions.
In regular cases no coupons or promotions are offered by KashFlow mostly due to its ridiculously cheap monthly pricing. However, once you become a client of the company, you can start referring its services to your friends. If your friend accepts your invitation and purchases one of the three products, you get a 10% discount on your next monthly fee for each invited friend. Furthermore, if your friend subscribes to Business + Payroll, KashFlow’s top product, he will get a ₤1.50 ($2.10) of each of his monthly fee for six months.
As Wave is a free online accounting solution – except for the use of card payment options, the payroll feature and the live chat and phone support – there are no coupons or promotions offered whatsoever. However, if you own a business that has at least 11 but not more than 100 employees and you subscribe to the payroll services of Wave, you only have to pay $2 for each of your employee aside from the $15 base fee. Furthermore, if you want live chat and phone support for three months at a discounted price, pay $49 once, and you can save 15%.
Since the prices of the major products are rather permanent, the only price reduction you could get is by subscribing for one of the three accounting solutions for a longer period of time. For instance, if you choose Liquid Online Accounts and subscribe to its services for one year, your monthly fee is not ₤15.95, but ₤14 per month, while subscribing for two years drops your monthly fee to ₤12 per month, which is a discount of approximately 20% off. Furthermore, as a reward for staying after the expiry of the trial period, your second month of use is free of charge.
From time to time, new customers can take advantage of special promotions. All new customers can save 30% for the first six months of use by purchasing Xero. There’s also a free 30-day trial version that enables you to try out the program before making the decision to subscribe.
