Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just around the corner and just like every year, there will be an avalanche of sales and deals coming at us left and right. To make some sense in this messy shopping-extravaganza, I decided to curate a list of all Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals related to time management and productivity (think time management books, productivity apps, calendars, …)

PS: If you know of any other deals that are not listed here, shoot me an email at [email protected] and I’ll add it to the list.

Without any further ado, here the Black Friday deals that will increase your productivity:

Apps & Software

Amazing Marvin

Amazing Marvin

What it is:

Not necessarily a black Friday deal, but it’s an amazing deal none-the-less. There’s currently a promotion running on AppSumo where you can get one year of the Amazing Marvin time management app for free. No catch. I highly recommend this, as it is one of the best time management apps in my opinion.

How it saves you time:

Amazing Marvin is a really cool app that features a to-do list, project management, calendar, …
What I like most about Amazing Marvin (besides the slick and unobtrusive design) is that it doesn’t force you into a certain time management system like other apps sometimes tend to do. What Amazing Marvin does instead is that it lets you choose which method(s) you prefer and it adapts it app to your needs.
This allow the app to support the “strict” Getting Things Done method, a looser variation of GTD, as well as techniques like “Eat The Frog” (do your most dreaded task first), or to combat overwhelm by only showing you the task you need to work on now instead of your whole to-do list.

Discount details:

Free for one year if you sign up via AppSumo

Book Like a Boss

Book Like A Boss

What it is:

Book Like a Boss is the scheduling and appointment app that I use. It’s linked to my Google Calendar and allows clients, potential clients, and others to schedule a slot in my calendar based on my availability.

How it saves you time:

It helps me to save time by avoiding the back-and-forth of “does x work for you? No? What about Y?”

Discount details:

ClickUp

Clickup

What it is:

ClickUp is my project manager of choice, the one I use daily for my own business and personal projects as well. They crunch out new (and better) features at a very fast rate, like Asana on steroids. They already have a very good free offer, but any chance to get on the business plan with a discount is a good deal. And did I mention their rap track?

How it saves you time:

Checklists, assignees, Gantt charts, Kanban boards, recurring tasks, calendar view, goals, scrum points, templates, reminders, subtasks, priorities, time tracking, custom fields, tags, custom workflows, iPhone and Android apps, … Did I mention their rap track already?

Freedom blocks the websites and apps (YouTube, Reddit, Facebook, Instagram, games, …) of your choice on all of your devices so that you can focus on your work. You can choose which apps and sites to block, on which devices to block it, and when to block them. Read my full review here.

How it saves you time:

According to an internal user survey, over 58% said using Freedom gave them 2 or more hours back daily. 30% said it’s more than 3 hours. Hashtag mind blown.

Discount details:

50% off for their “forever” plan (one-time payment instead of a subscription) with coupon code NOV2019

What it is:

Udemy is a marketplace for course creators who can teach you specific skills. There are some great courses on this platform, but terrible ones as well because everyone can become an instructor. Nonetheless, there are some really good courses and for $9.99, it’s a steal.
