Bugs In the MSB Sale Have Been Killed Off

Okay so I am currently running an MSB sale the deal is 25 dollars a year and it applies to recurring billing as well.  The discount code is “upgrade”.

We had multiple issues and they didn’t happen to everyone but they happened to some folks, we think we have all the bugs well sprayed with electronic Raid at this point and legs up as they should be.

A few of you signed up and didn’t get the discount, if that was  you by now I should have refunded you your discount, if you feel I haven’t please let me know.

Also the recurring discount was not showing up for some of you, it should show up for everyone now.

To join the MSB for only 25 dollars a year just click here and use code “upgrade” on sign up.  You can also use the code to pay by mail, if you are paying with crypto just send the reduced amount with the instructions provided during sign up.

MSB Sale, We Now Take Credit Cards and More

So this weekend we successfully completed an upgrade to the MSB system.  On your end, you really won’t notice anything different, but on our end it is better in every way.

The one really big difference for members is you can now use a credit card and are not forced to use PayPal if you want to pay online.  You can now pay by paypal or you can pay via most major credit cards.

For a long time (8 years) I resisted doing this, because I am so vocal against consumer credit, but of course many use cards and pay their balance in full monthly and many use a credit card online that is actually a debit card that works as a credit card.

Additionally for the last 2 years PayPal has been an utter mess with renewals failing, discounts not working and some people simply not being able to complete payments.

Now if you select pay by credit card/paypal you can pay with either with no paypal account.

To celebrate this upgrade I am doing a MSB sale for 25 dollars a year with renewals locked in at that rate, that is right, 50% off MSB for life.  The discount code is well what do you think it is, upgrade.  The sale will run until close of business Sunday the 27th.

This discount applies to all payment methods.  If you pay online just enter the code “upgrade” when you pay online.  If you pay by US Mail with cash or check just write the code on the form.  If you pay with silver we will simply make the price one ounce a year instead of two.

If you choose to pay by crypto, just adjust the price down to 25 bucks when you send your payment as instructed during sign up.

PLEASE NOTE – Please understand I still can’t let you renew early so this offer is for new members and members with expired accounts only.  This isn’t AT&T who doesn’t value their existing customers enough to offer them a discount it is a limit to recurring credit card charges.  If I let you renew early you will get double billed.

Also if you have an expired account, don’t set up a new one, just log in and you can renew your current account.  If anyone needs any assistance with this just email me as always at jack at thesurvivalpodcast.com with TSPC in the subject line and I will do what ever is needed to assist you.

Thanks to everyone who is or ever has been an MSB member, without your support we could not have delivered this show 5 days a week for over 9 years now.

MSB Login Issue, A Work Around and An Upgrade

Update – We seem to have corrected the login issue!

Okay so first and foremost, some folks are having issues logging into the msb, what happens is you enter your info, and submit it and are greeted with a blank screen.

This may or may not be related to the fact that my web programmer Ben Fitts is currently working on the site.  I’ll make him aware of this today as I just found out about it.

Here is the work around for now, login, then hit your browsers back arrow twice, when you see the site come up you will be logged in and it will work as you’d expect.  Frankly I don’t know what is going on but it isn’t a huge deal here is why.

The software the MSB is built on is about 8 years old, time for an upgrade.  For about a month that has been in the works, likely we will migrate to the new system this coming weekend, be alert for a post and an email that will notify you for a time that the site will be closed during the member migration we have to do.

The new MSB will be a lot better and likely again be up in a week, two at tops so we won’t spend to much time trying to fix the bug in a very old legacy system that will be likely gone in a week.  If it is an easy fix though we will do it.

If anyone can’t use the work around and needs anything from the MSB in the mean time, if you can’t get in just email me and I will get you the discount code you need or what have you.

Crown Bees and Holler Roast Coffee Added to the MSB

Log In or Join the MSB for this and Other Great Discounts.

Log In or Join the MSB for this and Other Great Discounts.

So just a few weeks ago I brought you a new discount vendor in Vin Armani’s Counter Markets.

This week I am bringing you two more.  I am really excited about these.

These two benefits alone may easily pay for your annual membership.  I am working very hard right not to further improve the MSB with some new and exciting discounters for 2017.  If you have been considering joining the MSB now would be a great time to do just that.

Now to the new TSP Discount Vendors…


First as many of you know Nicole Sauce who runs Holler Roast Coffee recently joined our MSB.  I was really impressed with Nicole’s coffee at our fall workshop.  So when she recently did a kickstarter to raise enough money for a new roaster I of course supported her.

Now she is in big time production mode and I have gotten you guys a great discount from her.  MSB members get a $2 per pound discount on premium coffee. Experience simple freshness. Each season, we carefully taste many different coffee beans from small farms around the world to choose the “Holler Roast” blend. All coffee is roasted to order to ensure that you get the freshest possible product. And when the beans are gone, we start another tasting cycle. Coupon code is good for one-time orders and for coffee subscriptions.  The discount code is already in your MSB Private Area in the “Benefits” section.


Next just today I had Charlie Mohr of Crown Bees on the show.   Crown Bees provides everything you need to build colonies of peaceful pollinators on your property.  Specializing in mason and leaf cutter bees and all the supplies you need to attract your own or you can get bees from them as well.

Their website is a wealth of knowledge and provides anything you can imagine for “hole bee” habitat.  The best part MSB Members get a full 20% discount on all items on their website.  With that one or two purchases from them alone can completely cover the cost of your MSB membership.

Learn more at CrownBees.com and if you want the kit I have in my own back yard with everything you need including mason bees and leaf cutter bees to stock your new bee house check out this kit, The Dual Season Bee Chalet.  The discount code is already in your MSB Private Area in the “Benefits” section.

Counter Markets Newsletter added to the MSB

I have really enjoyed working with Vin Armani for the past few months.  The guy really has his stuff together.  His show is combination of deconstruction of the MSM narrative followed by great guests.

I just did my second appearance on his show yesterday.  Despite a technical issue (things froze and crashed on his end) we powered though and you can see the archive here or you can jump to my part here.  It was a great show.

Vin released “Counter Markets” a few months ago, he sent me the first three issues to review and I was very impressed.  Counter Markets is written from the Agorist perspective, how can you profit in the new economy?  What are the trends you should be following?  How can you profit from these trends?

I was impressed by the content, and that isn’t easy to do.  We live in a world where in many ways content is now produced in such quantity that getting someone to pay for more requires something special.  I think Vin and his team have nailed it in that regard.

In the first three issues, I have learned a lot about a booming trend in housing called the “Co-Living Trend”.  Most are high density dorm like housing for millennials in the tech industry.  They tend to be in expensive tech areas like Silicon Valley and even Austin Texas.  I would not use this trend as it is described but it has given me thoughts about a new way to market “Tiny House Living” on my property.

I also learned in great detail the story behind Uber and Lyft being pushed out of Austin, and how the gray market then created “Arcade City” with ride shares being accomplished on Facebook Groups. How that splintered into Swarm City and why the Swarm may become the disrupter of the disrupters in almost no time at all.  This understanding has changed the way I am viewing crypto currencies and block chain technology.

The cost of Counter Markets is 149.99 a year for 12 issues.  Each issue has about 60-70 pages of amazing content that drills down on the most important counter market trends of the current month.  That might sound expensive but it isn’t for the quality of the information you receive.  It is like having your own team to drill down and find the best information each month and prepare a concise report for you on Counter and Gray Market activities.  Frankly I am glad it is expensive, I am glad that you have to buy it to see what is inside of it.  I think it will give subscribers and edge in the changing markets.

Of course, when Vin asked me to promote it I asked him to do an MSB discount and I got you a BIG ONE, how about 50 dollars?  You do realize that is the entire cost of a year of MSB at full price, right?  The discount code has already been added to the MSB and you can find it on the benefits page.

To Get the Code and Discount Log into The MSB Here

Not Sure Yet?  How about getting to look inside first with a free issue? To do that just go to www.countermarkets.com and sign up for your free copy.  But if you decide to subscribe after that be sure to use the MSB discount when you do.

MSB Sale Extended Because I Screwed Up

Last week I launched a sale where you could get your first year of the MSB for only 30 dollars.  I also did something kind of cool, all of you that got the deal didn’t just get your first year free, you got that rate for your renewals too.

I do that some times, sort of like and unexpected bonus.  But I also screwed up!  There were a ton of failures and I blamed PayPal, it is easy to do, because well they screw up a lot, not this time though.

Nope I screwed up.  This is what happened when I create a coupon code there is a box that says how many times that code will be permitted to work.  So I could like say there are only 25 available and the system will stop giving the discount out at 26.

I usually set this to some stupid large number and simply limit the dates so that it is a non issue.  Some how I set the limit to 10, I caught this mistake after helping a bunch of people with manual payments.

By that point I could see a ton of failures in the system.  I decided to just “fix the glitch” and bring the sale back around this week.  It is working fine now.

To get the MSB for only 30 dollars a year just use discount code spring17 when you sign up.  You can do that with Paypal Online Here or you can pay by Check, Cash or Money Order Here.  If you want to pay with Bitcoin please email me to arrange the sale price on Bitcoin.

Now this is a great time to become a member because I have made two great additions to the MSB just last week…

  • First – I have just added 14 Full HD Videos from the 2017 Spring Workshop at Nine Mile Farm.  To view them just log into your account and go to the Video section of the MSB private area.  These videos are all on Vimeo and you can view them streaming or directly download them to your hard drive as well.  This now makes a total of 24 Workshop videos of 30-60 minutes long each all in full HD video.
  • Second – By popular request I have put all 124 episodes of my Five Minutes with Jack Business Podcast in the MSB.  They are all in zip files and available on the download page of your MSB Private area.

Again if you are not yet an MSB Member you can join on this page or if you are already a member login here to get this great new content.  This sale officially ends on Monday the 8th at midnight central time.

P.S. – While I have fixed my screw up it doesn’t mean that PayPal won’t toss a wrench in the works for some of you, if it happens, just email me with TSPC MSB in the subject line, tell me what is going on and I promise I will handle it for you.

The two most common failures are first that the discount won’t be applied, the second is that it just won’t process the payment for you.  If either of these occur, I will get you a work around an I will honor the price.

MSB Updates 1-10-17

I have made some updates to the MSB that I wanted everyone to be aware of.

First – The High Mowing Organic Seeds code had expired.  The new code is now in the MSB, and High Mowing is a great long term supporter.  This is the time of year to be ordering seeds for the coming season, so check out High Mowing and remember to get your MSB discount visit the Benefits Section of the MSB before you make your purchase.

Second – Chef Keith Snow has an awesome new course on cooking with your preps called Food Storage Feast.  It is 199 dollars and that is a good deal but I got him to do a HUGE discount of 70 dollars for MSB Members.  To get the discount just use the special link for Chef Keith in the benefits section of the MSB.  By the way Chef Keith will be on air tomorrow to talk about this new course so tune in.

Third – I got with Dave Duffy and his team at Back Woods Home and said, hey man, do you guys want to do a discount for MSB for your new Self Reliance Magazine?  His answer was you bet, so I now have that code in the benefits section of the MSB as well.  So check out Self-Reliance.com today and if you sign up you get a great discount as an MSB Member.

Fourth – Just a quick reminder that all the videos form the TSP Fall 2016 class are now uploaded to the Downloads Page of the MSB Website.  They are hosted on Vimeo with a password because they are for MSB only.  The pass word is provided with the links to them.  There is over 10 hours of high quality instruction in these videos from 20 different classes.

TSP Workshop Fall Videos Posted to the MSB and Spring Workshop Announced

I have just added all the videos (20 of them) from the TSP Fall Workshop to the MSB.  They are all hosted on Vimeo, you can stream them or download them it is your choice.

Each video requires a password, the password and links to all the videos is posted on the “Video” Page in the MSB, you can log in here to access them.  If you are not a member consider joining today, the value of the information in these videos is easily worth a year of dues alone.

PLEASE NOTE in the MSB you will see a heading for these videos that says “Fall 2016 Videos from our TSP Workshop – These Videos are on Vimeo, you can download them there.  Used code _____ to access each of them. ”   That ONE CODE works for all of those videos.

Next Dorothy and I have settled on dates for our Spring Workshop, they will be March 23-25.  With set up on the 22nd and students can stay over until Sunday the 26th, to be off property by 11AM that day.

No further details or ability to sign up are available yet except the basic format will be like our fall event was.  A “fun and skills” theme with multiple instructors each doing about a one hour presentation.

On that note I am looking for people that want to teach a class.  This time I think we are going to do 5 classes a day for 3 days for a total of 15 sessions with some bonus sessions tossed in.  7 a day was a bit much in the fall event.

So I will not take every instructor that applies.  The deal for instructors is the same as last time.  If you are approved you get

  1.  A guaranteed seat at the class (last time we sold out in two hours)
  2.  A discount of 100 dollars off the event (due to space limits I can’t give instructors free seats)

To apply email me at jack at thesurvivalpodcast.com with TSPC event instructor in the subject line.  Pitch me your class and the basics of what it will include in one to two paragraphs.  If you email me and don’t hear back that I got it in 24  hours please reemail me so you don’t slip though the cracks.

I am going to give about 2 weeks of applications before making my decisions but will email you back that I got your application right away.

Patrick Roehrman Has Launched – MT Knives Private Reserve

mtknifMT Knives LLC has launched their private reserve program. Which is in some ways similar to my MSB Program.

MT Knives Private Reserve Members get 20% off MTKnives.net orders (Excludes Limited Edition knives and the Professional Sharpening System), a free digital download of Beyond Razor Sharp (a 21 dollar value), discounts on Trek Lite Gear, various consultations, mushroom spawn, lacto fermentation supplies, Simply Cleansing Soaps and more.

See http://mtknives.net/mtk-private-reserve for details.

Of course I asked him if he might consider discounting the program for my MSB members.  He was gracious indeed, I was thinking like 20% but he did double that, with a 40% discount.

MSB Members will also like the fact that all the discounts Patrick set up are ones I don’t have.  Great stuff too!  Discount codes and further detail are already published in the benefits section of the MSB.
