Why do I see “sorry, this course is not included in this promotion” when I try to enter the coupon code?
Since Udemy courses are created and managed by the instructors themselves, they determine whether their courses are going to be included in our promotions and sales. So, if you see this notice, it means the coupon code you’ve received cannot be redeemed for that course. Most instructors, however, are enrolled in Udemy promotions. So you’ll very likely be able to redeem the coupon code for a similar course. For tips on how to search for courses on Udemy, please click here.
In addition, please note that Udemy promotions can vary in length and scope, and not all sales apply to our entire marketplace.
How long are coupon codes good for?
If you have a coupon code that’s part of a Udemy promotion, then the coupon code can be used to discount eligible courses, until the promotion ends. The duration of specific Udemy promotions may vary. Some promotions may run for several days, while others may run for multiple weeks.
If you’re unsure about the expiry date of a coupon code an instructor has provided for you, however, we advise asking them directly.
What’s the difference between a Udemy coupon code and an Instructor’s coupon? How can I tell?
Since Udemy courses are created and managed by the instructors themselves, they can also can create coupon codes for their courses if they wish. These coupons can be redeemed the same way as outlined above, at Udemy.com.
Generally speaking, instructors forward coupons they’ve created to their students in promotional announcements from their courses, which often include a personalized message from them. In addition, many instructors also run their own promotions separately from Udemy, via their own social media channels and ad campaigns.
Why can’t I enter coupon codes on the Udemy mobile app?
The Udemy mobile app features the payment systems for Google Play (Android) and the Apple App Store (iOS), and as a result, there is currently no way to redeem a Udemy coupon on those platforms. Instructions on how to enter coupon or gift codes at Udemy.com are posted above.
