• My wife and I wanted to have Google Workspace on all our domains but as we were just getting started we thought to invest sometime figuring out ways to cut down on this monthly recurring cost.
  • Along with a few things I knew (coz of my day job as Google Workspace Administrator), I also did some research and testing. We were amazed to save ~65% on our workspace (explained below) cost.

  • Let me share all we learnt…. rest assured…. if you use these  tips as shown… you would be able to save 20% to 65% depending on our scenario.
Lets Start Saving

1. Google Workspace Promo Code

  • Let’s start with an easiest 12% guaranteed savings for first 12 months.
  • Google does not allow public distribution of these coupons, they are request based.

    Once you fill up the form, you immediately (automated) get a Google Workspace promotion code in your Inbox.
  • Don’t stop with just 12% here, I highly recommend you to read 9 more ways below to further reduce your recurring cost.
Great, now check your mailbox for the promo code, Also, scroll down and read 9 more ways to save 30% more.
Oops! Something went wrong while submitting the form.



  • Let’s take a scenario, you run 3 small businesses, each business has its own website, now you need 3 email addresses to interact with prospects and customers of these businesses (one each).
  • Instead of going with usual way of buying 3 Google Workspace plan licenses, let see (in the below video) how playing a bit smart here can save us 65% on top of 10% which we already saved with Google Workspace promo code.
  • 96% of the 45,000 users who tried this method were happy with this tip as you see the video stats below.

Usual Way!

  • Sign up 3 domains
  • Buy 3 licenses and pay $18 per month ($6/month *3 licenses, one on each domain)
  • Create 3 gmail addresses (one for each domain)
  • Switch back and forth in all 3 to check emails and reply to them

Smart Way (Video)

Watch this video to see how you achieve the same in just $6/month.


  • If you have been following so far, you got 14 days trial + you used Google Workspace Promo Code (formerly G Suite) and earned 10% discount.
  • If you are now sure that Google's suite of productivity apps including Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, Google Calendar, Google Chat, Google Meet video meetings, Sites, Google Vault along with Admin controls can help you become more productive, then consider following.​
  • Then it's time to consider switching to yearly plan as it comes with 17% additional savings over Google Workspace promo code than flexible plans.


Annual Plan- Pros & Cons

  • Approx 17% of more savings on top of Google Workspace promo code
  • No hassle of making (or tracking) monthly payments
  • Help you psychologically treat Google Workspace as your long term email system and inspire to get most out it

However, You are locked in for a year, so if you buy 10 licenses, and 2 of your employees leave, you can not ask Google to refund for 2 users, only option for you is to give them to new employees once they join in

Monthly Plan - Pros & Cons

  • Pay as you go, monthly billing cycle, increase or decrease licenses on monthly basis as you need
  • No locked in, in that worst case, if you want to move away from Google Workspace (formerly G Suite), you are only responsible for that month’s payment (monthly bill).

However, It will be expensive as You will end up paying 17% more than annual plan. Also, you will be more prone to consider other systems as you hear of, when you know you can cancel subscription anytime, which might hurt your productivity

My Recommendation

Go Monthly If

  • You have high attrition rate, and there is a substantial gap in employees leaving vs joining
  • You are buying it just for yourself or for your small business (5-10 users), go for monthly plan

Go Annual If

  • If yours is an established / large business, go for annual plan
  • If you are a kind of person or business who gets excited to hear about new technologies or systems, go for annual plan as it’ll put a full stop on your jump around (at least for a year)
  • P.S -: I don’t mean to avoid switching for something good, rather to avoid technology dilemma:)


  • I have seen businesses go crazy on creating users without taking advantage of Google Groups, though a bit less with G Suite business promo code, but it'll still increase your recurring expense.
  • It's not unusual to see some creating users like and wasting their hard earned money every month, as Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) pricing is recurring.
  • Well, that's ok, because they are experts in their business, and not in Google Workspace, but what if a little bit of learning can help you save substantial money?
  • In this video, i will show you how you can use Google Workspace Groups to send and receive emails and save some money


You might use your email address to sign up for different services, may be newsletter subscription etc, instead of putting your primary email id everywhere, you should rather do this-:

  • Create a Catch All Account
  • Now you can give anyone any email id, it only has to end up in, that's it
  • Google will catch all email send to any email id @yourdomain and send it your primary mailbox

Gmail + Method (Usual Way)

  • Your email id is goldy @
  • Gmail allows you to receive emails on
  • But this trick is too old, and people can easily judge your real email id by removing the part after +
  • It's ok to use if you use, but there is a better way if you have signed up for Google Workspace.

Catch All Method(Smart Way)

  • You main email id is and you created catch all account as shown in the video above
  • You can now use any email id, it just has to end up in
  • No one can guess you real email id now, much better than playing with Gmail’s + method
  • When you sign up for things which need email id, but you really don’t want to give your real one, just give, and once done, create a filter to auto delete emails coming on this email id.


Watch me create 2000 FREE email addresses in Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) for sending and receiving emails in less than 6 minutes with this hidden feature, this will help you save by creating free emails in addition to G Suite promo code.

  • If you are a non technical person, then please do not get scared by looking at this technical term “Recipient address map” it's not my fault, google named it like this.
  • I’ll make it easy for you to understand it (and of course use it) to save some money with it.
  • Once you understand it well, you can really save good money, so let's go for it
  • Google has a feature (which very less knows about, and you’ll not be one of them after today:) called “Recipient address mapping” which is hidden in the Control Panel which you get access to being a suite administrator when you sign up for Google Workspace.

Understanding Recipient address map-:

  • Think of it like a spreadsheet with 2 columns, where
  • Column 2 = Your Actual Google Workspace email id for which you pay every month to Google.
  • Column 1 = Your Nick Name (for this you do NOT pay to google, but google let you receive any email sent to your nick name in your main (column 1) mailbox

So I know, you might have got some idea now, but to make sure you get it right, here is an example

Let say you are just starting up your business and like a passionate business owner, you would love to be perceived as a professional (or kind of big) business, by creating different email addresses such as,, support@, sales@, helpdesk@ etc, but it will be just you behind the scenes.

In this case, you can buy one license which will be your primary Google Workspace mailbox (with using Google workspace business starter or business standard plan promo code).

Then put other accounts as nick names in recipient address table, and now you are free to give these emails addresses to your network, because when people send emails to any of your ids, it will come right in your primary mailbox.

But wait, what about replying?

  • So here is the way you can do just that, google offers something called “Send Mail As”, it is a feature (if setup correctly) which let you send (or reply) from nick names too.
  • And you can also set it up in a way, that you don’t have to choose it manually all the time, rather it automatically sends from the email id to which the email was actually sent.
  • Note-: you will always have the option to choosing from email id (primary or nick name) you want to send from.
  • So let us see how to configure this hidden gem called “Gmail Send Mail As”, here is an easy step by step video to set it up


Though the Google Workspace Promo Code for U.S got you 10% discount by now, but what if you in your second year of Google Workspace sign up?

What if you are an existing customer where Google Workspace starter or standard promo code won’t work for you?

Most of the businesses do not even know that Google has resellers who are specialized in transitioning you to Google Workspace and get most out of your investments in it and can also help you save money.

Even if there are no coupons code for business available for your country or even if you are an existing Google Workspace customer.

Google Partners (Google Workspace Resellers) get 15% to 30% recurring commissions on workspace licenses, and based on the number of licenses you need, they should be able to through some discounts to you.

Google Workspace Usage Stats
  • Google Workspace Setup as per Google’s best recommended practices
  • Data Migration from your email server to Google Workspace (such as emails, calendar and contacts).
  • Change Management (including “Communications management”, “Training Management” and “Support management”)
  • Security, Mobility, Integrations etc
  • They can also offer you G Suite promo code

But there is a good chance for you to save money here...

Yes! there is a good chance for you to save money here and also get personalized and expert support to use Google Workspace at its best

You can contact any Google Workspace Reseller (here is a Google Partner directory) mentioning that you have already signed up for workspace (consuming G Suite coupon code) and wondering if you can get some discount if you transfer your account to them.

In most of the cases, you should be able to get around 5% to 10% discount on your Google Workspace , making it a win-win as reseller will still get 10% margin even after giving 10% to you which will be a decent savings second year onwards when you can’t save with Google Workspace Promo Code.

Note-: You need to make sure that the reseller you are signing up with is credible + has active Google partnership + Expertise + may be a few case studies.

OK, so if you have been following so far, you would have reduced (or at least in position to reduce) your Google Workspace monthly bill substantially.

Let’s move on and cover couple of more saving to save


I have seen sometimes businesses straight away jump to buy Google Workspace with G Suite coupon even if they can get it for free or at very high discount.
