I really like the ashampoo burning software, had it since v4, bought several copies over time.
It does everything i need (all right my needs are simple, burn files, burn isos, make an iso, burn the same thing 5 times etc.), is clean, and the "easy" mode really makes it easy for people who arent too confident.

There's a similar deal out there for their photocommander (last version), I'll see if I can find the link. Although if you register on the site then find the newsletters tab you can find all the deals from the past few months, and many stay active way after the official date.
