Stacksocial Black Friday: 75% off Course Bundles, 40% off Digital; eg Windscribe PRO VPN Lifetime for $35 after coupon

I split the previous Stacksocial post because I got coupon-confused 🙂

Point #1: you need to login in order to test the coupons. You test the coupons by clicking on the tiny blue “Promo Code” on the right side of the shopping cart. You may have to squint to see it. Then enter the coupon codes and see what happens. Their shopping cart is the ultimate decider on what happens…

Stacksocial has gone into Black Friday mode with a trio of limited time coupons!

+ coupon BFSAVE75 is 75% off online course bundles

+ for apps and digital goods, coupon code BFSAVE40 gets you 40% off meaning for just $35~ you can get Windscribe PRO VPN lifetime subscription (which is $59 before coupon). Windscribe PRO supports unlimited devices…

+ for physical goods, coupon code BFSAVE20 gets you 20% off, eg some of the various featured items

+ NOTE: I can’t test every product and coupon combination, so that’s DIY for any items you are interested in

Groupon Pre Black Friday sale under way

The Black Friday madness is spreading across the internet stores with the Groupon Black Friday Preview sale currently in progress. You can browse through, or use their left hand side to filter by categories of interest…

Ivacy VPN and Firewall with lifetime subscriptions for $24 after coupon

UPDATE: coupon BFSAVE40 (40% off) works on apps and that includes VPNs!

Stacksocial too is joining in the early Black Friday festivities by offering the Ivacy VPN: Lifetime Subscription + NAT Firewall for $24 after coupon code BFSAVE40. Both the VPN and the Firewall come with a lifetime subscription. The VPN allows login to the service of up to five devices simultaneously and promises no-logging. IT supports not just Windows, Linux, MacOS, Android and iOS, but also Roku, Kodi, Kindle, gaming boxes, etc. It has serves all around the world and it is based in Singapore. The free included Ivancy firewall is an add-on to the Ivancy VPN.

PS: speaking of security matters, there is a widespread recall of Romaine Lettuce. Which verifies my risk assessment of this green water: the risks of eating it are higher than its nutritional value 😉

Best Buy Early Access sale in progress

All apologies but I don’t have my Best Buy account on this laptop, and I cannot remember my password, so I can’t see what’s on sale. But if you are a member of the Best Buy Rewards programs [free to join], and you are logged on to your BB rewards account, they are currently running an Early Access sale. After that, the sale [or whatever is left] will open up to everybody else. Best Buy has been using this online strategy lately.

The more you spend in a year, the higher the reward level you reach, and the earlier you see the offers. If you are a pleb like me, you are at the entry-level reward level so you are the last to see the offers before the general population does.
