SetApp deal I want to draw attention to

This site is user-supported; posts may contain affiliate links which help pay for the site at no cost to you. Thanks in advance for your support! More.

So Cyber Monday is over but I just learned that StackSocial’s CMSAVE40 code will still save you 40% off their apps until December 6th, and while there are many apps on sale there, I wanted to draw your attention to one deal in particular: SetApp.

SetApp is a subscription to an App Store of over 210 apps, all of which you have access to, and including some absolute gems of apps (includes Ulysses, 2Do, Gemini, CleanMyMac, Screens, Unclutter, and tons more; check out the full list here). Normally a year’s subscription will cost you $9.99/mo or $107/year, but StackSocial has the price at $69 which is already a great entry price, but code CMSAVE40 saves 40% and gets the price just $42, which is an absolute steal. Update: Apparently Stacksocial isn’t honoring that coupon for SetApp, which is a disappointment, but you may still want to check it out at $69, which is 36% off.

I’m not a big fan of “renting” apps rather than buying them, but a price that low could be a great way to test out and use a whole bunch of apps for an entire year and then decide to either keep the subscription or buy the apps outright. Check out StackSocial’s deal on SetApp before it expires! Note the deal is only for new SetApp users.

Announcement: Technical difficulties (waterlogged phone)

So…one of the things we enjoyed on our vacation was a waterpark. One of the things my wife didn’t enjoy was when our son splashed her on a raft. She screamed. The dashing white knight I am, I jumped out of my raft and ran to her when I heard her scream. My phone was in my pocket and despite Apple claiming it waterproof for exactly these kinds of “falls into the pool”, it died. I tried the bag of rice, no such luck, so I’m phone less at present.

Suffice it to say, no deals today. I’m trying to migrate things over to my iPad, but found out today that it won’t work to run the deals. I’ll try to troubleshoot it tomorrow and be back as soon as I can, but until further notice, deals won’t be happening.

Should I start a GoFundMe for a new phone?

MDM Deals 2.5: The biggest change yet

The survey results are and I’ve been hard at work changing things in light of the results. Today I’m excited to announce the most significant change to MDM Deals to date–a change so big, in fact, that even the tagline of the website has changed. Ready? Drumroll please…

MDM Deals: Discover great deals on fantastic apps and books

Yup, that’s right: movies are gone and books are here. Read on to learn about 3 big changes to MDM Deals:

Bye bye movies

The survey results made abundantly clear that you weren’t so interested in movies. In fact, 80% of you said that you’d be happier without movies, so they’re gone. For the 5% of you who said you’d buy me a coffee for removing books, well…here ya go:

Hello, books

A significant majority of you said that you’d be interested in deals on ebooks–and so I’m excited to start curating ebooks this week! Ebooks will appear tonight on MDMDeals.com and I’ll be rolling them out to all 20+ channels over the course of the week. As always, I’ll do my best as I do to provide filtering options so you can ignore ebook deals if you like. Four other things to note as we get going:

eBook Store

I’ll be starting with Apple Books as they’re easiest for me to integrate in my system, but I’d love your feedback on where you buy your books.


I picked the arbitrary price point of $7.99 to begin curation. There may be occasions where I list books on sale for more than $7.99, but most will be $7.99 or less. I’d love your feedback on if that’s the right price point.


While there’s only a few million apps on the App Store, there are hundreds of millions of books. That makes deal curation all the more important, it also means my ebook curation will reflect my interests more than my app curation does. For example:

  • I have no interest or expertise in Romance novels, so you’ll never see those
  • I love history and biographies, and because my history interests are more about US and China, you’ll see more of that

I’ll do my absolute best to curate to a general audience, so your feedback is super helpful, but you’ll definitely see my interests and personality reflected in ebook curation–for good and bad :-).

Book genres

My present plan is to curate ebooks in the following genres. In alphabetical order:

  • Biography & memoir
  • Business & personal finance
  • Fiction (more rare, mostly best sellers & classics)
  • History
  • Lifestyle & home (more rare, but Marie Kondo deserves to be curated)
  • Mystery & thrillers (more rare, but Tom Clancy deserves appearances)
  • Non-fiction
  • Parenting (more rare)
  • Professional & technical (more rare)
  • Reference
  • Religion & spirituality (more rare)
  • Sci-Fi & fantasy
  • Science & nature

At present, I intend to NOT curate the following genres:

  • Cookbooks
  • Fiction (apart from best-selling or classic works)
  • Graphic novels
  • Health, body, & mind
  • Politics*
  • Romance
  • Sports & recreation
  • Travel & adventure
  • Wine & food

*I’m interested in politics, but I don’t want to politicize MDM Deals by curating to my interests, nor will I attempt to keep choices “well-balanced,” so I’ll just ignore the category. I will, however, curate biographies of political leaders across the spectrum because we can all learn from the lives of people like Reagan, Clinton, Bush, & Obama.

See what I mean that this is way more personal than apps are? At the risk of being repetitive, I’d love your feedback on what genres interest you.

2020 priorities

I really appreciate your feedback on the survey; it has been most helpful identifying ways that MDM Deals can do better going forward. As I have time to grow MDM Deals, here’s my initial priorities for 2020:

  • Develop ebooks into a full-fledged part of MDM Deals
  • The launch of something I’m calling Dealworthies, which I can’t wait to tell you about.
  • Adding paid custom price drop alerts so you can choose to be alerted when a specific item goes on sale

As always, your support of the site is very much appreciated! I run this all in my spare time and give up significant time each day to find and publish the deals for you. If you appreciate what I do, would you buy me a coffee or join my Patreon?
