Anyone who buys themes or is looking for even one theme should get the StudioPress Pro Plus package. I bought this back when it was $200. The price has gone up, but guess what? I have lifetime access to all past and future child themes. That $200 investment was one of my best online investments to date. Thanks for featuring the sale.

Hi Kristi,

This time of the year is ideal to make, for real, some of the wish-lists accumulated along the year.

Very interesting deals, I missed some of them until now, I know your post is a work in progress during these few days of crazy shopping 😉

I’d like to dig in to Premise when I can..

All the best,

Gera

Wonderful Kristi!

This is such an awesome collection of great deals and discounts, everything in one place! While I have been receiving newsletters from some of the bloggers you mentioned, but going through everything on your post makes it all the more clear about what deals you would really be keen on.

Heading right over to check out a few of them now. 🙂

Thanks for sharing these goodies with us. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours too. 🙂

Thanks Harleena! I would have had it up sooner, but everyone was a bit later letting us know about their promotions than usual this year.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving too! 🙂

That’s great Kristi. Thanks for the list of sites. I’m really interested in the blog post promotion guide and CommentLuv discount. I wasn’t even aware they were discounted until now.

Kristi – a great collection as always. I’m still wondering how you manage with all the “timely” updates being almost there with your pregnancy 🙂 Keep up Kristi.

I have grabbed the deal from Studiopress right away. They rarely release new coupons and I am addicted to their themes so much that I can’t resist buying new themes again and again. Glad that Black Friday comes and bring a huge discount for their pro plus package

Kristi, thanks for this. Will most certainly be getting Genesis Pro+ (still having a hard time trying to justify shedding $260 on a theme package!). Is GoDaddy or someone else planning on offering discounts on domains? Have to buy a couple for myself + a few for some projects and now might be a good time to do so.

I am one of those people who hate Black Friday, but come Cyber Monday, you can find me spending money somewhere. I like that you have included a “Blogging” list for cyber Monday as well!

Thanks for sharing your resources for bloggers Kristi. After participating in Black Friday madness one year I realized I actually prefer Cyber Monday but different strokes for different folks. It’s pretty cool vendors are offering such steep discounts – especially if it’s something that will be put into use frequently.
