Black Friday Deal: Go Premium While Supporting Linux Hardware Reviews & Open-Source News

Those wanting to get Phoronix Premium to enjoy ad-free browsing and multi-page article viewing on a single page can do so for just $25 USD, a nearly 30% savings! Or there's an even better deal if you want lifetime access.

The annual rate of Phoronix Premium to support our work while getting ad-free viewing and the ability to view multi-page articles on a single page, among other benefits, is normally $35 USD per year (under $3 a month) but through the end of next Monday, 26 November 2018 that will be honored for just $25 USD a year. Of course, you can still opt to pay more if you enjoy all of the work done on Phoronix every day of the year, but for those with a tight budget, here is your chance for a bargain.

To get Phoronix Premium for $25 a year, first sign-up for the Phoronix Forums. Normally from the forums you can manage your subscription, but with this being a one-day deal and vBulletin not supporting "sales", I need to process the Black Friday subscriptions manually. To take advantage of the Black Friday deal, you can send your $25 USD via this PayPal link (or to Michael at manually). When sending money via PayPal, mention your forum username in the comment/message and I will activate your subscription ASAP. If paying via Bitcoin, you can email me at Michael at with your forum username. Once receiving the information, will get the subscriptions activated -- should be within few minutes to an hour, except when I'm sleeping, etc. If contributing more than $25 USD, for every $25 contributed, I'll extend your subscription by another year.

Or for a lifetime subscription that can be enjoyed as part of this deal for just $100 USD (compared to the normal lifetime subscription rate of $150). The process is the same for taking advantage of this Phoronix Premium lifetime sale. It's quite a deal with Phoronix approaching its 15th birthday in June. There is new content on Phoronix each and every day.

Alternatively, if you are already a premium subscriber, you can think about a tip for the holidays or showing other forms of support. Thanks for your support; the past few days has been a bit lighter than normal with my wife being in the hospital, but she's out now so it will be back to a lot of interesting Linux content and benchmarking over the days ahead. Phoronix Premium members also have priority access to me for feedback and future test requests.

Thanks and happy holidays.

Update: For those wondering about timezones in terms of when this deal expires, I am rather lax and will honor the special even into the hours of Tuesday. When this post disappears, the deal expires.
