Free services for #broke New Yorkers

The moment I stumbled across Suitey, a real estate tech startup, and General Assembly, an online and in-person technology school taught by professionals, I knew I hit the jackpot.

Not only are both sites incredibly helpful and provide great services, but they both offer awesome FREE benefits to users…and it’s free to sign up too: the definition of a win-win situation. Also, I am going to list all of the codes below to save you all the leg work…you’re welcome.

Hint: Take advantage before they figure this out…like right now.
