QUICK HIT: How much does Guitar Tricks cost? A simple breakdown of the platform's cost and pricing model.
Since its inception back in 1998, Guitar Tricks has sat atop the ranks of guitar lesson video programs as one of the most robust and well-put together options on the market, especially for beginners.
Their pricing system has remained largely unchanged over that time span, and is still broken down by monthly and annual options which are interspersed with promotional offers, most commonly during the holiday months.
In this article, we'll look at a simple breakdown of cost and membership options for guitar tricks.
Simple Cost Breakdown
Here's a breakdown of the current cost of a monthly and yearly membership for Guitar Tricks:
- Basic Membership (access to limited content): Free
- Monthly Membership: $19.95
- Yearly Membership: $179 (about $15 per month)
You can check current pricing here, directly on the Guitar Tricks website.
Monthly Pricing Comparison Table
For all paid memberships, Guitar Tricks provides a 60-day money back guarantee which is - to my knowledge - the longest grace period in the industry. For a JamPlay membership you get 30 days.
Here's their current pricing model and graph, which only shows their monthly membership cost:
What about Guitar Tricks' promotional pricing?
As I referenced earlier, Guitar Tricks runs promotional offers for their memberships, usually their yearly plan. The best deals I've seen run during November and December, during the Black Friday and Christmas season. Here are the two promo pricing models I've seen most regularly:
- Annual Membership: Price cut to $99 (regularly $179)
- Annual Membership plus a free Huntington acoustic guitar: Price cut to $129 (regularly $179 plus value of the guitar)
If you sign up for their mailing list (usually when you sign up for a free basic account), you'll get emails if and when they offer these promotions. Alternatively, you can check the Guitar Tricks promo page to see if those offers are active.
Does Guitar Tricks offer a Free Trial?
Guitar Tricks offers a 14 day free trial, after which you can funnel into a paid membership or cancel from your account's dashboard without getting charged. Even then, you can fall back on the 60 day money back guarantee to get a refund if you decide it's not for you.
I got into a ton of detail about the Guitar Tricks free trial, for those who are more curious about what the process entails.
