Wix has announced a limited-time half price sale on its website builder plans, with a 50% off deal beginning today and ending on Thursday 8th April.
The half price sale is open to new users and anyone currently using Wix's free plan. This means you can access one of the best website builders and ecommerce platforms on the market from as little as $6.50 per month.
With the Covid-19 lockdown giving plenty of people the extra time and incentive to build their own website, Wix's offer is particularly timely.
Let's take a closer look at the new deal, and whether Wix is the right platform for you.

How much can you save with the Wix Deal?
With the deal, budding website owners will be able to save 50% on all Wix pricing plans. There are only two catches: the savings only apply to annually billed plans, and you've only got until Thursday 8th April to take advantage of the savings.
However, the deal means that anyone is able to save a small fortune on a new website or online store. Let's take a look at the savings you could make:
|Paid annually||Price with saving|
|Combo plan||$156 ($13 per month)||$78 ($6.50 per month)|
|Unlimited plan||$204 ($17 per month)||$102 ($8.50 per month)|
|Pro plan||$264 ($22 per month)||$132 ($11 per month)|
|VIP plan||$468 ($39 per month)||$234 ($19.50 per month)|
|Wix Stores Basic||$276 ($23 per month)||$138 ($11.5 per month)|
|Wix Stores Unlimited||$324 ($27 per month)||$162 ($13.5 per month)|
|Wix Stores VIP||$588 ($49 per month)||$294 ($24.5 per month)|
Needless to say, these savings are huge. It means that you can get a fully-functioning online store for less $150 per year — with a saving like that on an overhead, your business is almost guaranteed to be in the black.

How Good is Wix for Building Websites?
Wix is the best website builder on the market, based on our own independent testing and user feedback. In fact, here at Tech.co, we put every website builder through a series of stringent user tests to work out which ones you should bother with and which you shouldn't — and Wix scored better than any of its rivals.
Wix scored an unmatched 4.5 out of 5 in our tests while its closest rival, Squarespace, could only muster 4 out of 5.
We loved Wix's simplicity and its excellent customer support and help center. What's more, Wix scored highly in our value for money category — meaning that this new 50% off deal is even better value.

How to Build a Site Using Wix
Getting started with Wix is super straightforward.
Head over to Wix.com and pick a template for your website. There are more than 600 to choose from and, while that might seem daunting, most are designed with specific types of website in mind. For example, if you're looking to build a photography site, there are 40 to choose from.
Then, you can start editing your site, making changes as you see fit. If you're not certain where to start with creating a site, you can check out our guide on what makes a good website for inspiration.

A discount is all well and good, but you want to be sure you're choosing the best website builder possible – this is, after all, about your website and its long-term future success.
Wix isn't the only website builder on the market, and there are plenty of competitors who invest hard to make their products cutting edge. To determine which is best, we put them all through stringent independent tests and assessments, including ease of use tests using a panel of participants of varying degrees of expertise.
We also rate the features, value and quality of the templates offered by each. Wix is our top-rated website builder following all these tests, but check our table of results, below, for more detail on its rivals:
