I have had some serious problems with RiverDeep too. Sometimes their pricing
and offers change after the purchase order has been sent. At any rate, we
are using Type To Learn (Sunburst), which was priced at $349 network and
$159 for a lab of 10.

Advice on typing tutors.
Last June, I was unable to take advantage of a discount offer for 25% off of
Mavis Beacon. I was assured by the sales rep. that the offer would be good
after the fiscal year began in July. It was not, but since I was led to the
understanding that the offer would be good in July by their sales person,
Riverdeep decided to extend the discount for me. The following is a
confirmation email message I received from Riverdeep.
Talking with my manager we notice we still had the promo code in the system
for 25% of Mavis Beacon upgrade.
In order to receive the discount you must do these two things:
1. Proof of purchase of current Mavis Beacon program. For example a
copy of the invoice, packing list ....
2. Note this promo code on the PO : MBPO30325A
Upon getting approval and sending them a purchase order with the proof of
purchase of my original network version (not compatible with XP), I was told
that higher-ups in the company had decided that Riverdeep would not honor
this offer. I do not have the $699 in my budget and so I am looking for a
different typing tutor. Any suggestions on another product that would be
good for 3rd through 8th grade students?
