There are some great deals to be had on Black Friday, but seasoned tech shoppers tend to look ahead to see what Cyber Monday has in store. If the past is any indication there should be plenty to look forward to, as is readily apparent from the 10 Cyber Monday deals described below.
It’s a shorter holiday season this year because Black Friday comes so close to the end of November. So close in fact that come Cyber Monday we’re already in December.
One thing to note with respect to the web design tools and apps and project management software solutions listed below: most offer free plans or free trials. The discounts, on the other hand, apply to products or plans that must be paid for.
That said, let’s start shopping.

The Brizy Cloud Website Builder offers a free plan and a pair of paid plans. The Cyber Monday discount applies to whichever of the paid plans you might select, as you would expect. The Brizy website builder is designed to help users create multiple-page websites quickly and without a lot of fuss and bother. The package contains large selections of customizable layouts (150+) and design blocks (700) to get you started and quickly on your way.
You can accomplish a great deal with their Free Forever Plan, and we suggest you sign up and give it a try well before the Cyber Monday has come and gone to take advantage of the discount. While you don’t have to sign up, you should open an account if you want to save whatever you created with the free plan.
The two very affordable paid plans (Personal and Studio) offer much more than the free plan of course and can be yours for 40% off the regular price when you order December 2nd or 3rd. The discount code to use in the shopping cart is CM40OFF.

As anyone who works with a variety of software management tools can tell you, it can be difficult keeping everything in sync and all team members on the same page all of the time.

Paymo helps project managers, teams, and team members plan their work, track the time they spend on their various tasks, and bill their clients correctly and fairly. Operating from a single platform, Paymo keeps everything in sync, generates reports, automatically tracks time, provides real-time status, schedules resources, and more.
Useful project management features include Kanban Boards, Gantt charts, expense tracking, and of course invoicing; plus, Paymo integrates easily with Xero, QuickBooks, Photoshop, and other popular applications.
The Cyber Monday discount is 30% when you subscribe. Use Code GVX233.

This year, Cyber Monday comes a bit later than usual, falling on December 2nd. Cyber Monday deals are typically among the biggest online deals of the year, short of a fire sale, on tech-related items.
Some Cyber Monday deals are available in physical stores as well. But, online shopping is almost always more convenient. All you have to do to confirm your order is press “Done” and perhaps “Download”. Cyber Monday discounts are typically as large, and often larger than Black Friday deals.
