zolidev profile image Zoltán Szőgyényi Originally published at themesberg.com ・7 min read

The time of the year has arrived when many online businesses offer the best discounts and deals for the whole year. Black Friday has now started! In this article, I want to present to you the best 10 deals I have encountered in the past few days if you’re a web developer or designer.

Every deal that is presented below has a real discount because I have verified the history of the prices throughout the year using webarchive.org. If you’ve saved up a few bucks for this time of the month, I suggest you take advantage of these deals while they’re still available.

The main criteria for each deal are as follows:

  • Quality of the product is above the market average
  • A good reputation as a brand and positive reviews overall
  • Consistent discounts based on the regular price

Without further ado, here’s the list for Black Friday 2020,

Themesberg - up to 94% off for Bootstrap themes, admin templates, and UI kits

Themesberg is a growing brand that has been around for almost two years, and it is known for launching both open-source and premium website themes, admin dashboard templates, and UI kits based on the Bootstrap CSS framework. The products are used by over 6000 developers and software companies all over the world.

The deal is simple, you can get every premium theme ever launched on Themesberg starting from only $479 $79 for the Freelancer License. There are only a limited number of orders available, so hurry up before there’s nothing left. The deal will expire on November 28.

Creative Tim - 90% off for template stacks for Bootstrap, React, Vue.Js, Angular, and Laravel

Creative Tim is another respectable brand providing open-source and premium templates in technologies such as Bootstrap, React, Vue.Js, Angular, Laravel, and many more. Products from Creative Tim are used by over one million developers all over the world.

Creative Tim Black Friday 2020

What I like about their offer is the abundance of templates in each stack and the fact that they have created a stack-based on technologies. It means that if you’re used to working with React, you can only buy the React stack and you’ll get a lot of templates, UI kits, and admin dashboards that you can use for many years to come for your projects.

Overall, I recommend checking out their main Black Friday page and see if one of the stacks is a good fit for you or your company.

AppSeed - 70% Off Premium Dashboard Templates in Flask and Django

AppSeed is another awesome brand integrating admin dashboards, templates, and UI kits from popular theme creators and integrating them in technologies such as Flask or Django. I love the fact that they offer 24/7 live support and that you can also join a Discord server and talk with the creator of these dashboards.

The price reduction is generous for this year’s Black Friday promotion and you can get the bundle starting from $99 for the Personal License. If you’re a big fan of Flask or Django I recommend you check out their Black Friday deal page.

Bluehost is a popular and affordable way to get your website online using their hosting services and servers. This year they are offering a huge discount of up to 60% per month, meaning that you can get a hosting plan for only $2.65/month, normally costing you $8.99/month.

Namecheap - Up to 98% off for domains

I personally always use Namecheap to purchase domain names and also to manage the DNS records of my website, it has never failed me. I manage over 40 domain names using Namecheap and I’ve never been more satisfied with a service for registering domain names. Previously I have used GoDaddy and I had some bad experiences with them.

In this deal you can get the following price reductions for each top-level domain:

  • .com - 44% off
  • .net - 54% off
  • .org - 54% off

  • .co.uk - 34% off
  • .ai - 19% off

All you need to do is apply the code BFTLDREG when checking out. The deal expires on November 30, so if you had some great domain ideas, now is the time to register them with a great price.

BootstrapDash - Up to 90% Off Admin Templates, Themes, UI Kits

BootstrapDash is a great place to get admin dashboard templates based on the most popular CSS framework Bootstrap. They also launched an interesting “Spin the Wheel” type of deal where you can win one of the following prizes:

Adobe Creative Cloud - 20% Off

If you’re a web designer it is hard to believe that you have never used or aren’t using a product from the Adobe stack, whether that would be Photoshop, Illustrator, XD or anything else. Personally use Illustrator to modify most of the SVG files that I need to work with, even though I also use Sketch more often.

Adobe Creative Cloud Black Friday 2020

If you’re paying for their products on a monthly basis, it’s a good idea to take advantage of this deal and pay for a whole year’s worth of subscriptions, saving 20% overall. I recommend you to check out the Black Friday deal page and see if it’s a good deal for you or your team. The deal will end on November 27.

Adobe Creative Cloud - 20% Off Black Friday

Nord VPN - 68% Off + 3 Months Free

Protecting your privacy when browsing online is an important thing to be aware of and you also get a lot of advantages of being able to browse the internet as if you were in countries, such as the United States, Germany, Japan, or many more. When I was in China last year, I had to use a VPN service to be able to use websites such as Gmail, Facebook, or Instagram.

NordVPN Black Friday 2020

They have a great deal right now and you can get a VPN service for only $3.75/month and you also get 3 free months. That’s quite a bargain. If you want to use a VPN service and protect your privacy, this is the team to take advantage of this deal.

Nord VPN - 68% Off + 3 Months Free Black Friday

Udemy - Courses from $9.99 and limited deals

Udemy is a great resource for junior and intermediate web developers and designers to expand their set of skills and knowledge. Personally, I’ve watched some courses from Udemy in the past and I must say I really did learn a lot of things that help me with my projects to this date.

Udemy Black Friday 2020

There are lots of courses on Udemy and most of them have a different kind of this Black Friday discount, some of them starting from only $9.99. The campaign will end on November 27, so hurry up before it ends.

Udemy - $9.99 Courses Black Friday

Mockplus - Up to 70% Off for the cloud subscription

Mockplus is a great service if you’re a web designer and you want a better tool to design your product using their software. It is focused on building great user interfaces for the web and mobile markets.

Mockplus Black Friday 2020

You can get 50% off on all Mockplus plans right now without any coupons. Plus, you can enjoy a Double Discount for Group Buying. The offer is available until December 10.

Mockplus - Up to 70% Off Cloud Plans

That is the whole least of the Black Friday deals that caught my eye this year. I have purchased some domains from Namecheap, subscribed for a year of NordVPN, and purchased a year’s worth of Adobe Creative Cloud. I would’ve purchased the Themesberg bundle as well, but because I work here I already have access to them by default.

If you ask me, the best Black Friday deal is the chance to spend time with family, eat good food, and relax—not splurging money on courses.
