I hope this isn't a "repost" type of posting.

I hadn't found any "all encompassing" list(s),  that mention websites where one can obtain free and/or deeply discounted software.
I mean besides the list with arranged member discounts (http://www.donationc.../Specials/index.html),
Besides the many individual posts about single software deals.

Myself, I review the deals mentioned throughout the Donationcoder forum.
I thought it would be cool if a sort of "Big Software Discount List" might be assembled, to help others searching for discounts/deals.
Naturally websites with "ongoing, everyday deals" are best.

I have also found that there are some software vendors who regularly run scheduled discount promotions, but only a select few times a year.  Many now have "Black Friday through Christmas" discounts, "New Years" discounts, 4th of July, software company's Birthday/anniversary sale.

My list so far is:
1. donationcoder
2. Bitsdujour - mainly payware with discounts, but now offering sevral freebies throughout each week.
3. SOS or Sharewareonsale.com - about half freebies and half payware.
4. colormango.com - payware at all sorts of various discounts. A good place to search for any paid software(s) that you cannot find discount   codes for.
5. GAOTD - seems anemic when compared to sites like SOS. (SOS is like having a a week's worth of GAOTD offers, all at one time).

The next are mostly for web designers , but still some software items. Especially software items of importance to webdesign types.
6. Dealfuel.com - mostly "web designer stuff" , but still several software products at any given time.

7. Mightydeals.com - another "mostly web designer stuff", but a few software sale items at any given time.

I subscribed to the daily newsletter from Windows Deal and haven't been disappointed.  Try it.

I had this thread going that garnered a few sites:

Best Windows Giveaway Sites



Edit: it is in the Found Deals and Discounts sub-forum which usually has notices for individual giveaways and discounts.  So far I have 6 sites that I monitor daily that I got from the thread above.

Thanks to everyone for the inputs. :Thmbsup:

Time for me to sign up for a few more newsletters, to keep up to date on these various software websites.

We have had issues with their spamming team on this forum, lately. Banned a few of them over the last month or so.

-------------------

Do "you" have a discount code for Dynamic Photo HDR 6 or any other MediaChance product, please?

When I upgraded from version 4 to version 5, the price was $24.
This time (from version 5 to version 6) they want me to pay $56 !!!

I am early retired, so I have learned to write companies and ask for a discount, but this one has to be BIG
- especially because I really want to also upgrade my Dynamic Auto Painter - but that price is even higher
