5 Day Deal is back again and even though Patrick and I made a video attempting to explain it, we are still getting a ton of questions and complaints from confused photographers. People keep asking us if this is a scam. Let me try to answer everyone's questions.
I made a video that explains exactly what this 5 Day Deal is, how to go about buying the correct package, and how to download all of the content afterward. If you're interested in getting our tutorial The Art Behind The Headshot with the bundle, you should watch the video above, it's fairly complicated.
What is 5 Day Deal?
Around 40 photographers and businesses have pooled 46 different photography-related products together to sell as a bundle for 5 days ending on October 7th 2019. These products retail for over $6000 but are being sold for $152 (97% off).
Is 5 Day Deal a Scam?
The website layout, strange generic lead video, and the promise of 97% savings do make 5 Day Deal appear to be a scam of some kind but I can assure you it is not. We've worked with 5 Day Deal for the last few years now. Surprisingly, 5 Day Deal gives 10% of their sales away to charity and to date, they have donated over 1.5 million to charities around the world.
Some photographers are saying that the products in the bundle are bad and aren't worth even the discounted price. I have not vetted all of these products and I'm sure that at least some of the content in this bundle is bad. But, even if it was all good, you probably won't be interested in the majority of it. But, if you find a few items that you're interested in, it's certainly worth it.
What is Fstoppers Submitting to This Bundle?
We decided to add our very first tutorial with Peter Hurley, The Art Behind The Headshot. We sold The Art Behind The Headshot for $300 for years and we currently sell it for $200 in our store. For the next 2 days, you could buy it for $152 from 5 Day Deal and also get $6000 in other tutorials and software as well. If you were looking to buy this tutorial anyway, obviously it's a no brainer, but even if you're not interested in it, or you've already purchased it, you should check out the 46 other products that come with this bundle.
3 Different Bundles Explained
This current 5 Day Deal has 3 separate bundles and you will have to buy all three to get our tutorial, The Art Behind The Headshot. All three bundles together cost $152.
As you can see, Peter Hurley's, The Art Behind The Headshot is ONLY in the final Pro Add-On Bundle.
How to Download The Products
Once you pay, you'll have the option to pay extra for an SD card with all of the files to be mailed to your house, or you can download the files. On the next page, scroll down and you will find a list of every product. Simply click on each product one by one to download them. Keep in mind that all downloads expire on November 20th so if you think you might want something, go ahead and download it.
In conclusion, no, 5 Day Deal is not a scam, but it is fairly confusing. If you're considering buying any part of this, I highly suggest you watch the video above. I answer a few more questions and I walk you through the entire buying process.
