Black Friday and Cyber Monday are almost here!

If you're a website designer or developer, there's no better time to stock up on some great tools for next year and beyond (hello LTDs).

That being said, you should definitely proceed with caution.

It's way too easy for us to blow our money on tools we'll never use.

You're going to see A LOT of offers over the coming days. Some will be good, some will be crap.

So to help you filter through the noise, I've put together a list of some of my favorite Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2021 deals.

Each of the products below I've either personally used/tested, have heard good things from people I trust, or are built by a reputable developer.

If you're looking for specific software to add to your toolkit, these are the ones to get.

*Note: consider this a live document. I'll be adding to this post as I come across great deals 🙂

Hosting

Cloudways

Cloudways is my recommended hosting for most users. It's simple to use and offers a lot of value for the money. You essentially get to manage your own VPS without needing the technical know-how.

Deal: Get 40% OFF all plans for 4 months.
Validity: November 23 - December 1, 2021
How to Redeem: Click here and use the code BFCM2021 at checkout.

WP Engine

WP Engine is great for slightly larger businesses. You don't get the same bang for buck as you do with Cloudways, but it provides a stress-free experience with excellent support.

Deal: 5 months free on any annual shared plan.
Validity: November 22 - November 30, 2021
How to Redeem: Click here and the coupon code should be automatically applied at checkout.

Page Builders

Oxygen Builder

In my opinion, Oxygen is already the best buy - even without any discount. If you don't already use it, you should pick it up.

Click here to get Oxygen for 0% off 🙂

OxyExtras

A must-have addon pack for Oxygen. Extremely well-built, and I use it on every site.

Deal: Get 15% OFF on LTD licenses.
Validity: November 25 - December 2, 2021
How to Redeem: Click here and use coupon code 15FORBLACKFRIDAY.

Elementor

While Oxygen is my favorite page builder, Elementor is best if you want to build pages quickly or create landing pages on an existing site.

Deal: Get up to 50% OFF when signup up or upgrading your plan.
Validity: November 22 - November 30, 2021
How to Redeem: Click here and discount will be automatically applied.

Useful WordPress Plugins

WP Rocket

WP Rocket is my go-to speed optimization plugin. You should always use server-side caching when possible, but WP Rocket has other handy features like CSS/JS minification, delay JS execution, video lazy-loading, link preloading, CDN integration and more.

Deal: 30% OFF new licenses.
Validity: November 23 - December 1, 2021
How to Redeem: Click here and discount will be automatically applied.

Fluent Forms

My go-to form builder. It has an easy-to-use interface, plenty of conditional logic built in, and allows you to create conversational forms (think TypeForm). Its founder is active in the WP community, and the plugin is well supported by most page builders.

Deal: Get up to 40% OFF on both annual and lifetime licenses.
Validity: Available Now - TBD
How to Redeem: Click here and use coupon code SAVE21 for annual licences, or BFCM21 for lifetime licenses.

WS Form

WS Form

While I use Fluent Forms in most general cases, WS Form is amazing if you need something more advanced. It has countless power-user features that almost make it as much of an app builder as it is a form builder. Their customer support is amazing too.

Deal: Get up to 30% OFF all plans.
Validity: November 25 - TBD
How to Redeem: Click here and use coupon code BF30.

FluentCRM

Most email service providers can get really expensive once you start growing your list. FluentCRM is a self-hosted solution, meaning you only pay for transactional emails (pennies on the dollar).

Deal: Get 40% OFF on all plans.
Validity: Available Now - TBD
How to Redeem: Click here and discount will be automatically applied.

FluentSupport

FluentSupport just got released this month. It has some initial bugs that they're still ironing out, but it's an affordable & fast solution if you want to self-host your own ticketing support system.

Deal: Get 50% OFF the lifetime deal.
Validity: Available Now - TBD
How to Redeem: Click here and discount will be automatically applied.

WP Social Ninja

Social feed plugins are weirdly expensive. Just released last month, WP Social Ninja provides a good value at this price and makes embedding posts/reviews/videos easy. This is what I use on the NewPulse Labs Videos page.

Deal: Get up to 50% OFF annual and lifetime licenses.
Validity: Available Now - TBD
How to Redeem: Click here and discount will be automatically applied.

Newsletter Glue

I'm in the process of trying this out. If you our a client publishes a newsletter, it can speed up your workflow immensely. Newsletter Glue allows you to create your newsletter within Gutenberg and send through your existing email service provider (like ActiveCampaign).

Deal: Get 80% OFF the Newsroom tier.
Validity: Available Now - November 29, 2021
How to Redeem: Click here and discount will be automatically applied.

WooFunnels

If you're selling products with WooCommerce, you need a funnel builder. It allows you to optimize your checkout experience and create funnels to boost your customer LTV. WooFunnels also integrates well with Oxygen.

Deal: Get up to 40% off.
Validity: To Be Announced
How to Redeem: Click here. Discount code coming soon.

CartFlows

Very similar to WooFunnels above. Both are rock solid, so it's really a matter of preference. CartFlows also just released a pretty neat Canvas mode feature.

Deal: Get up to $200 OFF any CartFlows Pro plan.
Validity: November 22 - December 3, 2021
How to Redeem: Click here and discount will be automatically applied.

WP Grid Builder

I bought WP Grid Builder last BFCM, and use it on my blog page. Simple to use and works amazingly well. This is their best offer of the year, and they only offer the LTD on certain occasions. This is the best time to pick it up if you're interested.

Deal: 40% OFF all plans, including the lifetime deal.
Validity: November 24 - December 1, 2021
How to Redeem: Click here and discount will be automatically applied.

Motion.Page

This is less of a Black Friday sale and more of a Black Friday special launch. Motion.Page allows you to visually animate any element on your website, and works with every page builder out there.

I had a chance to be a beta tester for them, and it's definitely a well-built product. It made creating animations a lot easier than it normally is (full review coming soon).

Deal: 25% OFF unlimited lifetime license.
Validity: November 22 - TBD
How to Redeem: Click here and discount will be automatically applied. Use code NOWORNEVER for an additional 10% off!

SaaS

Better Uptime

One of the few good deals on AppSumo this year. I grabbed Better Uptime the last time it was offered and it's been a very good buy. I use its uptime monitoring for every personal site and hosting client, and no longer have to pay monthly for Uptime Robot.

Deal: Lifetime deal starting at $69.
Validity: Available Now - November 30, 2021

Brain.fm

Brain.fm

I use Brain.fm just about every day whenever I need 1-2 hours of pure focus. I'm not sure how it works exactly, but it feels like coffee for your brain.

Deal: 20% OFF forever or 50% OFF your first year.
Validity: Available Now - TBD
How to Redeem: Click here and use discount code NEWPULSE for 20% off, or click here for 50% off your first year and discount will be automatically applied.

Convertful

Convertful

I use Convertful for most of the opt-ins on this site. I love that it has a tight integration with your email marketing CRM - meaning it can show opt-ins based what tags a contact has in ActiveCampaign (as an example). It's a monthly subscription but pays for itself pretty easily.

Deal: 30% OFF on all plans.
Validity: November 25 - November 29
How to Redeem: Click here and use discount code CONVBF at checkout.

Design Resources

DesignKit

DesignKit is a bloat-free design system for Figma. It's made by a talented designer named Rafal Tomal from Poland who I've followed for a few months now. The kit allows you to set up your branding and create simple wireframes in minutes.

Deal: 30% OFF DesignKit and all Rafal's other products
Validity: November 22 - November 27 (10PM Central Time), 2021
How to Redeem: Click here and use discount code #000Friday at checkout.

Note: there is also Untitled UI if you are looking for a design system with a ton of premade sections. Both DesignKit and Untitled UI are great options, and the better option depends on the project you're using it for.

Affinity Suite

If you're looking to move away from your Creative Cloud monthly subscription, Affinity's creative suite is a great alternative. Affinity Photo, Designer, and Publisher are packed with functionality and come at a fraction of the cost (a one-time payment).

Deal: 30% OFF Affinity Photo, Designer, and Publisher
Validity: November 22 - TBD
How to Redeem: Click here and discount will be automatically applied.

Artboard Studio

I've seen some people compare Artboard Studio to Canva in Facebook groups, but I don't think that's accurate. Artboard Studio is a mockup design tool, with a ton of 3D objects that you can place your design on. It's most useful if you do any kind print work or want to make device screenshots for your landing pages.

This is apparently their last lifetime deal.

Deal: Lifetime deal at various price points
Validity: Available Now - December 1, 2021

Other Products

Fully Standing Desks

I've been eyeing a Fully standing desk since the spring. Their Jarvis series has great reviews from everything I could find. 15% off doesn't sound like much, but I can confirm it's their biggest sale of the year. They might offer 10% off a couple of other times throughout the year.

Deal: 15% off all products
Validity: Available Now - November 30, 2021

I hope you've found this list of the best Black Friday Cyber Monday 2021 deals for web designers useful.

As I mentioned in the intro, I'm going to update this post continuously until December rolls around.

If you come across any other great deals that you want to share with the WordPress & web design community, leave a comment below.

Only the good stuff though.

As for what I'm picking up this year, well I pretty much already have everything on this list. 😅

I plan to release some digital products next year, so Fluent Support might be my next purchase. I'm also currently trialing Newsletter Glue.

As always...

Thanks for reading!
