Thanks for checking out the raywenderlich.com Server Side Swift Celebration sale FAQ! We’ve created this page to answer some of the most common questions about this sale.

What’s included in the Server Side Swift Super Bundle?

The Server Side Swift Super Bundle is a two-book and video subscription bundle. It includes two digital editions (in both PDF and ePub format) of our two server-side Swift books: Server Side Swift with Vapor, and Server Side Swift with Kitura, along with complete source code for all projects in the books.

It also includes the first month’s subscription to raywenderlich.com, with instant access to all of our hundreds of video courses and screencasts, covering all aspects of mobile development.

How long will this sale last?

This sale will run from Monday, February 25 2019, until the end of Friday, March 8 2019.

How much of a discount does the $99.99 Server Side Swift Super Bundle give me?

The usual retail value of our books is $59.99, and the retail value of a month’s subscription to raywenderlich.com is $19.99, so all three products together would normally cost $139.97. For just $99.99, you receive both books — Server Side Swift with Vapor and Server Side Swift with Kitura — as well as your first month’s subscription to raywenderlich.com.

Whichever way you look at it, it’s an amazing deal!

I have a monthly or yearly subscription to raywenderlich.com. Am I still eligible for the $99.99 bundle?

Since you’re already a valued subscriber, you can get the two-book bundle alone for just $79.99. If you’re logged in with your raywenderlich.com account, the store page should automatically show you the two-book bundle product.

When will the included monthly subscription renew?

As part of the Server Side Swift Super Bundle, the included monthly subscription will renew in one month from the date you purchase the bundle. You’re free to cancel anytime, though, on your subscription management page here: https://accounts.raywenderlich.com/

What is your refund policy?

Our video subscription is non-refundable. However, you can cancel at any time and will keep your video access until the end of your billing period. We do not offer refunds for unused access time.

You can cancel by logging in to your raywenderlich.com account and then clicking “manage my subscription”. If you have any trouble/questions, contact us at support@razeware.com for assistance.

For all book purchases on our site, we offer a 30-day refund period, and we do allow partial refunds if you wish to return some books from a bundle.

Is this a stripped-down version of the usual subscription? What am I missing out on?

You get full access to everything included under our raywenderlich.com video subscription: access to all of our video courses, and screencasts, along with the ability to track your progress through your video courses and pick up where you left off. It’s not a stripped-back version in any way.

Why am I being charged more than $99.99 when I purchase the bundle?

You’re likely being charged tax on your purchase, which is based on the country from which you are making the purchase.

Why am I being charged tax, since I am tax-exempt?

If you or your company is tax-exempt, there should be a spot to fill in your VAT number during the purchase process. Here are some detailed instructions.

If you feel you have been charged tax in error, email our support team at support@razeware.com and we’ll look into it for you.

Can I get an invoice or receipt for my purchase?

Absolutely. Log in to your account and visit https://store.raywenderlich.com/receipts, where you can download all invoices for your purchases with us.

Does a raywenderlich.com subscription include access to the books?

No, unfortunately; the raywenderlich.com subscription is for videos only. You’ll get both books as part of the Server Side Swift Super bundle, while the subscription provides access to the video portion of the site.

Do your books come with free updates?

While we can’t guarantee that each one of our books will be updated every year, we usually update most of them. For those books that we do update, anyone who has purchased the digital edition of our books will receive an updated edition for free.

I already have one of these books. Can I “upgrade” to the Server Side Swift Super Bundle?

If you’ve purchased the pre-sale Kitura book or the first-edition Vapor book within the last 30 days and really want to take advantage of the bundle with the subscription, get in touch with our support team at support@razeware.com and they’ll take care of you.

I missed the deal! Can I get it after the sale ends?

Oops! Sorry you missed it, but this is a special deal only and won’t be available after Friday, March 8, 2019. Be sure to sign up to raywenderlich.com weekly to get notified of any sales in the future.
