active-digital-gifting mob-digtial-gifting

With an eGift, you can instantly send a Great Course to a friend or loved one via email. It’s simple:

  1. Find the course you would like to eGift.
  2. Under “Choose a Format,” click on Video Download or Audio Download.
  3. Click ‘Send e-Gift’
  4. Fill out the details on the next page. You will need the email address of your friend or family member.
  5. Proceed with the checkout process as usual.

Once you have paid for your order, your friend or loved one will receive an email letting them know that they have a gift waiting for them at TheGreatCourses.com. That gift will be added to their My Digital Library when they log in and click to redeem it.

If they are not yet a customer, we will help them set up a new account so they can enjoy their course in their My Digital Library or via our free mobile apps.

When the recipient clicks on their email and redeems their eGift, you will automatically receive an email notification.

eGifting only covers digital products. To purchase a DVD or CD version of a course and mail it to a friend, please call customer service at 1800 461 951 for assistance.

Back

Oops! The recipient already owns the course I gifted. What now?

Great minds think alike! We can exchange the eGifted course for another course of equal value. Please call customer service at 1800 461 951 for assistance.

Can I update or change my email address?

Yes, you can. Go to My Account to change your email address.

Can I select a date in the future to send my eGift?

Sorry, this feature is not available yet. We are working on adding it in the future.

Back

What if the email associated with eGift is not for my regular Great Course account?

When redeeming your gift, you will be able to enter your exsiting The Great Courses email into the redemption form so you can associate it with the correct account.

Back

When purchasing a gift for someone, why do I have to create an account?

This is done for two reasons. One is so you can track the purchase of the order in your ‘order history’ section as well as being able to let our customer service team track your purchase and the person who received it if the need arises.

Back

Can I return or Exchange a gift after I purchase it?

Because the gift is sent immediately, it cannot be returned or exchanged by the person giving the gift. The recipient can exchange the gift for another course of equal or lesser value, or pay the difference on a more expensive item
