WordPress Cyber Weekend Deals 2018

Well it’s that time of year, where there are lots of deals that I’d rather buy for myself than for others. I think nothing better encapsulates that than the digital deals going on in the WordPress /online worker space. I mean don’t get me wrong, I’d love to get a great deal on hosting. But I’d be disappointed if someone got me hosting for Christmas. That said, it’s the best time of year to save yourself some money while making those last minute end of the year business purchases. Here are my favorite (mostly) WordPress Cyber Weekend Deals.

WP Engine Easter Egg Saves You 20%

So it’s probably the case that you’re feeling the pinch in these less-than-desirable economic times (to put it lightly). CNN is reporting a lot of families will have trouble putting gifts under the tree this year, as it the case with my family. However, if you’re like me you’ve got some money saved up for this holiday season. Here are some ways to spend that money more effectively; below is a list of sites where you can generally find things cheaper than normal.

  • woot.com: woot has one deal per day, everyday. There are also some days where they have a “Woot-off”- several (dozens of) items over a couple days. Something to watch closely if you’re not sure what to get something. They also have tee-shirts at shirt.woot and wine stuff at wine.woot.
  • Overstock: Overstock has a wide range of things that you can find refurbished, which will save a little on the price.
  • AmazonMp3: Cheap digital music.They have daily deals and the Five for $5 Fridays. Plus they are all DRM free, so it doesn’t matter what kind of computer or mp3 player they have. An AmazonMp3 gift card would be perfect for the music lover you know. (and Amazon.com in general isn’t too bad either!)
  • Deal Finders: There are several sites that will help you find deals/coupons/cheap stuff online. BeatThat! is just one of many sites showcased in LifeHacker’s Deals Section.

I use woot and AmazonMp3 (and Amazon in general) regularly. What sites do you use to save money? Any musts that I missed here?
