Now that you've survived Black Friday and dealt with Cyber Monday. The holiday shopping season tradition continues on Tuesday, Dec. 3, with NewsU's Training Tuesday. This is a chance to give yourself the gift of training.

All day on Tuesday, Dec. 3, you get 25 percent off all of our Webinars, video tutorials and self-directed courses that have a fee. (This offer doesn't include seminars, certificates or packages for which we already offer discounts, such as training packages and the Essentials of Mobile Journalism series.) You can purchase as many items as your shopping cart will hold. The more you buy, the more you save.

To take advantage of this limited-time offer, enter the promo code 13TT13E when you check out. It's good until 11:59 p.m. Eastern time Dec. 3. After that, the Training Tuesday savings are gone until next year.

Use it for some of our latest self-directed courses, including:

Financial Literacy Basics: Producing Better Business Stories: Learn to decipher financial information and bring context and depth to financial news.
Developing a Successful Journalistic Blog: Explore the five key elements of successful blogs, some of the legal and ethical questions you're likely to wrestle with as you go along, plus the nitty-gritty of blogging technique.
Fundamentals of Editing: Gain a solid grounding in the process of editing and the range of skills that give text a professional polish.
Social Media: Strategies and Tools for News: Learn how you can effectively integrate social media into all aspects of your journalism, including newsgathering, verification, audience engagement and distribution.

Or some of the most popular Webinars of 2013:

The Camera With You: How, and When, to Shoot with a Smartphone: If you carry a smartphone, you're carrying a camera. Learn how to make the most of that camera, whether you're capturing breaking news or covering a meeting.

Looking for something else? See our complete course list of more than 400 Webinars, seminar snapshots, video tutorials and self-directed courses. And at NewsU, we always offer free shipping. [Just kidding. We really don't have anything to ship; but we have lots of online learning.] Training Tuesday is our way of saying thank you for your support all year of the great training at Poynter's NewsU.

The fine print: This offer is good only through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time, Tuesday, Dec. 3, and is good only for individual courses, Webinars or tutorials. It cannot be combined with other offers and can't be used for any certificates, training packages or online seminars.
