Whether you're looking to learn a new skill or dig deeper into a hobby you already have, having an experienced teacher who is considered one of the best at what they do helps. With MasterClass—the virtual learning hub that's taken the world by storm—you can take classes taught by celebrities like Natalie Portman, Martin Scorsese, and Neil deGrasse Tyson. Even better, right now you can get two annual memberships for the price of one and give someone you love a gift they'll probably never forget.

From now through midnight on Wednesday, September 29, new customers can get two annual MasterClass memberships (valued at up to $552) for prices starting at $180, which means you'll save 50 percent no matter which plan option you choose. You can gift a free year to anyone, even someone who has an active membership. All you have to do is sign-up through the brand's website—just keep in mind, you won't be eligible for this offer if you've previously participated in a similar promotion.

There are three types of plans to choose from: the Standard plan, which is $180 per year; the Plus plan, which is $240 per year; and the Premium plan, which is $276 per year. On MasterClass, there are over 100 sessions across 11 categories taught by notable figures regarded for their expertise in their fields such as food, writing, and business. For example, you can learn the art of storytelling from author Neil Gaiman or environmental conservation from Dr. Jane Goodall. Each plan includes access to all the platform’s classes, plus the ability to watch on mobile devices, get workbooks and content, and take part in community discussions. However, a Plus membership lets you watch on two devices simultaneously, while the Premium membership allows you to connect six devices to your account and stream simultaneously. You can also download sessions for offline viewing on iOS devices with both the Plus and Premium plans, but not with the Standard.

No matter which plan you choose, you'll automatically get an additional free one thanks to this offer, and it'll be identical to the membership option you chose. If you're already thinking about gifts to give this holiday season, a Masterclass membership could be a great selection, especially for that special person in your life who seems to have everything. Make sure to get your annual MasterClass membership now before the offer expires.
