Black Friday Round-Up Part #1: DiscountMags, CreativeLIVE, Costco, NewEgg, Stacksocial

And now let’s round-up some of the online shop offerings, so I don’t fill up the blog with hundreds of tiny posts 🙂 This year I’ll be trying this approach, small round-ups every few hours.

The DiscountMAGs website is having its Black Friday sale with VideoMaker ($11~ per year, 6 issues) being the last remaining camera and photo magazine. But they have plenty of “six degrees of separation” (tech, fashion, weddings, sports, etc). Consumer Reports stands out at $14.90 for 1-year (13 issues).

The gift of e-learning with a coupon – code FRIDAY50 drops $50 off on the 1-year Creative LIVE subscription (Netflix style), making it $99 for 1-year of unlimited access to most of their courses! Note that offline access is only available on their iOS app.

Stacksocial is having their Black FRiday sale as well, and their headliner is a 1-year Costco Gold Star membership for $60. This includes a $40 digital Costco Shop card, making it a $20 assuming you’ll use the Costco Shop card. Detailed terms and conditions over there!

Speaking of Costco, their Black Friday deals consists of 951 options! Some offers are Members-Only, others are open to all shoppers. Details on each offer over there. They have two camera and photo options, a GOPRO 11 bundle for $280 and an Ascend Aeronautics drone (2 stars on 8 ratings) for $70.

I love the NewEgg website. The bigger the sale, the bigger the font they use. In this case, there is a color explosion with a giant “Black Friday” in the middle 🙂

Their Black Friday sale consists of 3040 products, which I will be listing one by one below 😉
