All About Pre-Paid Credits
What are pre-paid credits?
All Charlotte Lit classes can be purchased with a credit card OR with credits that you purchase in advance, at a discount. The more credits you buy, the more you save—up to 30%. (Another nice thing about credits: once you have them, it makes registering for a class and checking out a breeze—no credit card info to enter).
How many credits will you need?
Generally, one credit equals one hour of class time. Thus, our typical 3-hour class requires 3 credits. You can browse our class list to see what you’re interested in taking; each course description shows the number of credits needed. Credits do not expire, but we know you’ll want to use them up!
Who can buy credits?
Credits are available to all Charlotte Lit members. You can become a member for as little as $7/month or $75/year.
How much will you save?
Members pay approximately $18 per class hour at the a la carte rate, and credits are $18 each. When you buy 10 credits, you save 10%. When you buy 20 credits, you save 20%. And when you buy 30 credits, you save 30%.
