You’ve used sp_Blitz and the First Responder Kit to learn a lot about your databases. You read the blog regularly, subscribed to the free newsletter, watched some of my YouTube videos, maybe even watched me on Twitch or followed me on Instagram.
You wanna take my training classes, but… they’re expensive.
I feel you, and I wanna reward my long-term readers who don’t get a big glamorous training budget. I’m talking to those of y’all who either pay out of your own pockets, or who have to grovel and beg your manager to get out the company credit card.
So every November, we run a big Black Friday sale to help. We run it all month long so that you can sweet talk your boss into pulling the trigger.
This year’s highlights:
Pretty much everything else on the site including my live online Mastering classes is discounted as well.
To get these deals, you have to check out online through our e-commerce site. On the site, we only take payment via credit cards – no IOUs or dry cleaning coupons.
Can we pay via bank transfer, check, or purchase order? Yes, but only for 10 or more seats for the same package, and payment must be received before the sale ends. Email us at Help@BrentOzar.com with the package you want to buy and the number of seats, and we can generate a quote to include with your check or wire. Make your check payable to Brent Ozar Unlimited and mail it to 9450 SW Gemini Drive, ECM #45779, Beaverton, OR 97008. Your payment must be received before we activate your training, and must be received before the sale ends. Payments received after the sale ends will not be honored. We do not accept POs as payment unless they are also accompanied with a check. For a W9 form: http://downloads.brentozar.com/w9.pdf
Can we get discounts for group buys? Not during the Black Friday sale.
Can we send you a form to fill out? No, to keep costs low during the Black Friday sales, we don’t do any manual paperwork. To get these awesome prices, you’ll need to check out through the site and use the automatically generated PDF invoice/receipt that gets sent to you via email about 15-30 minutes after your purchase finishes. If you absolutely need us to fill out paperwork or generate a quote, we’d be happy to do it at our regular (non-sale) prices – email us at Help@BrentOzar.com.
Sales will open on Wednesday, November 1. Now’s the time to start talking to your manager about your training. If you want an easy way to do it, copy/paste the below into an email:
SQL Server has changed a lot over the last few releases, and there are a lot of new tools and techniques I can use to do my job better. I’m not asking to go to an in-person conference – those are pretty expensive – but Brent Ozar is running a Black Friday sale next month where I can get access to his Mastering class recordings for $1,695.
He has to receive the payment during November, so we can either check out with a credit card on Nov 1, or if we wanna go through accounting, we need to start now if he’s going to get the check in time. He returns any payments that come in after Nov 30. If we want to do it, which one’s easier, credit card or accounting?
