There’s been a lot of discussion going on about GMAT vouchers & promotional codes. And everyone seems to be clueless as no one exactly knows what’s this all about, neither they’re getting proper information from internet. But if it’s on official GMAT website then codes has to be there (somewhere floating around or only for some exclusive bunch of people). The reason for lack of information around the world wide web is this is a recent phenomena. It was not present earlier. Hence the post. 🙂
What is GMAT promotional & voucher code? where can I get it? How can I get it?
While registering a GMAT date at MBA.com when you check payment options you’d find two boxes at the bottom of the screen appear for GMAT promotional code & GMAT voucher.
1.] GMAT voucher can be obtained from your university’s financial aid office. You need to express your financial need & provide relevant documents to support what you claim. It’s your finacial aid office decides whether to avail the voucher to you or not.
GMAT voucher code is available & valid for selected nations or regions. (I’m not sure whether it’s available outside United States…)
2.] Secondly about GMAT promo code (promotional codes) these are nowhere to be seen. In my theory, if a certain company has partnered with GMAC to offer GMAT promotional code or discount, it should promote the promotional codes well; it should advertise the promotional codes in order to leverage the benefits of the partnership (or whatever.) So, to conclude I dont think there are any promotional codes out there (you do study Critical reasoning, dont you 😉 ). It’s may be the feature added (by web designer) they never used. (I vaguely remember that Kaplan might have such promo codes for their GMAT classes.)
But it’s a great feature to introduce. If GMAC hasn’t thought of use it yet, they should seriously think about it.
We, at Beat The GMAT, perhaps can use this promo codes for GMAT scholarship winners. I think it’s lot more safer, convenient and direct option to offer GMAT exam fees to winners than giving them ‘e-cash’ through paypal.
PS: I’ve figured out way to avail the GMAT voucher!
