  • Offer not valid on international locations outside the US.
  • Excludes gift card purchases.

Our Verdict

Country Inn offer excludes gift cards and Upwork does not sell gift cards, so that angle won’t work. Upwork discount is pretty massive at 50%, for those not familiar Upwork it’s basically a place to find freelancers (or for freelancers to find work). The fees they charge freelancers are as follows:

  • 20% for the first $500 you bill your client across all contracts with them
  • 10% for total billings with your client between $500.01 and $10,000
  • 5% for total billings with your client that exceed $10,000

If you’re hiring a freelancer fee you’ll pay their rate plus a 2.75% processing fee.
