Basically, you can buy a TOEFL voucher at a 20% discount from Applyboard. You can then use the voucher when you register for the test. That’s a nice way to save some money!
Note that vouchers are locked to specific countries and currently can only be purchased for: India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Philippines, Brazil, Canada and Mexico.
Another thing worth noting is that the pricing seems a little bit quirky, so the discount is not always exactly twenty percent. For your convenience, here’s a list of what you will pay for one voucher in each country:
- India: $158.57 (17% discount)
- Bangladesh: $164 (20% discount)
- Pakistan: $160 (20% discount)
- Sri Lanka: $148 (20% discount)
- Vietnam: $160 (20% discount)
- Brazil: $172 (20% discount)
- Canada: $151.20 (32% discount)
- Mexico: $160.00 (20% discount)
The discount in Canada is probably more than 32% since no extra sales taxes are added in the shopping cart.
A few other details are worth mentioning here:
- You can get even larger discounts if you buy vouchers in bulk. You’ll get a 25% discount if you buy more than 10 vouchers, and a 30% discount if you buy more than 50.
- You can also buy TOEFL prep materials (e-books and graded TPOs) at discounted prices.
- You can also buy vouchers for the GRE and the PTE.
- I don’t know if the vouchers have expiration dates.
- ETS usually adjusts its prices in August. I don’t know how this will impact the sale of vouchers.
So there you go. I hope this helps you save some money on your TOEFL registration.
