The Phoronix Premium Thanksgiving / Black Friday 2021 Special

Written by Michael Larabel in Premium on 26 November 2021 at 05:00 PM EST. 4 Comments
For those in the US, Happy Thanksgiving. As usual tradition for marking the US Thanksgiving and "Black Friday" / "Cyber Monday" start of the Christmas shopping season, I am once again running a Phoronix Premium special to help support site operations.

Through the end of November, you can "go premium" at the discounted holiday rate. Normally Phoronix Premium costs $35 USD per year or $150 for a lifetime subscription. For this year's deal, you can go premium for just $25 per year or $120 for a lifetime subscription.

As a reminder, Phoronix Premium provides ad-free access to the site while still supporting our work (using ad-blockers otherwise is detrimental to all of the work invested in Phoronix), multi-page articles on a single page, notices about upcoming articles, priority feedback / honoring of test requests in trying to honor article/review requests made by premium supports, and the fact of supporting all of the work done on Phoronix over the past 17+ years on a daily basis. Aside from premium, impression-based ads are the main source of funding that allows Phoronix to continue. Beyond the detrimental impact of ad-blockers on operations, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has also further hurt the ad industry and our operations.

To take advantage of this deal, first ensure you are registered on the Phoronix Forums as the forums are what handles the subscription/user management aspect. There isn't any integrated sales support in there so the normal prices of premium subscriptions are listed there still. To get the discounted deals of $25 for a year subscription or $120 for a lifetime subscription, PayPal the amount of money to [email protected] (or you can use this PayPal link). Following that I will manually activate your forum account to premium status. If your payment email address is different from your forum's registered email address, please include your forum username when making the payment. If you are already a premium member, you can extend your current subscription at the special rates, just mention it in the email / PayPal message. Anything above and beyond as a tip is welcome. If wanting to pay via alternate means than PayPal, email me to the address above to figure out alternative forms.

Happy holidays and stay tuned for a lot of interesting open-source/Linux hardware content to still come this year. Thanks for your ongoing support over the past seventeen and a half years of Linux benchmarking.
