Hi Valeria, I've been a member of the Upwork community for quite a few years now and how never received any emails with promo codes. I've just upgraded to a paid account for the first time ever and want to make sure I am signed up to receive the emails when they are sent out.
Three years since Upwork took over odesk/elance without a single code makes it feel pretty unlikely that I will ever receive one and seriously make sme doubt they are actually being distributed. I've never came across a single Upworker who claims to have received one themselves.
Membership promo codes are offers given to Upwork freelancers and agencies via email, events, and partnerships. Unfortunately, we are unable to issue one of them via the Community. Thank you.
upwork make the biggest change so there are no free connect hope upwork will help the freelancer like Africa Asia and other 3rd world where people serve upwork. Like freelance at upwork work, they live there life. Their lot of skill they learn for upwork & that has very little impact for there local market even have no impact in their domestic country. Even a dual currency MasterCard is very much difficult to get even country like Bangladesh papal is not allow government suspended a lot of online payment gateways. So, please give them some promo codes some opportunity for them to serve upwork.
