In the US there are some strange traditions, and one of them is the day after Thanksgiving when people line up from 3 or 4 in the morning to be the first people in a store when it opens to get some item for a really good price. This is ostensibly to get a head start on Christmas shopping.
We’ve decided to replicate this experience but without the cold, the early morning, or the scramble to get to the door first.
Right now you can get 20% off on all upgrades purchased on the Upgrades page on your blog. This is our Black Friday sale and must end in 20 hours time!
For example, you can get VideoPress for only $47.98, register a domain and map it for $11.98. Custom CSS costs $11.98 right now.
20% off everything, only for the next 20 hours. Check out the list of available upgrades to see what’s on offer then visit your Dashboard and click “Upgrades”.
This is the first sale we’ve ever had, and might be the only one.

WP first sale.. yaaaaaay!
haha you promoted WordPress upgrades… sounds interesting…
Great idea! You are so creative at WordPress!! :-)
wait! so I can’t purchase the CSS upgrade again for another year cause I already have the upgrade??
I got some discount on hosting and will soon shift to self-hosting!
P.S.: You’ve a cute baby in the profile pic. :)
WordPress is so sick!
Best Blogging site ever
Me siguen sorprendiendo! ;)
(Dear Santa-I’ve been a good girl this year; how about that shiny No-Ads upgrade?)
well, I got mine…. a CSS upgrade for a year U$11,98 or so…..
Still cant afford it
oh wow! i’m loving this! durnit! now i gotta transfer some funds.
Muy buena oferta.
This is an awesome idea, of giving Black Friday discounts…..are you also going to be doing Cyber Monday discounts?
WTG!! WordPress promote, promote, promote! ;)
can you guys extend it for 1 more day plz?
then i will be sure have a VIDEOPRESS UPGRADE and DOMAIN upgrade.
plzz.. 1 more day
Then you will R.O.C.K more! :)
hahaha you guys are so sweet to do this. and creative, too. ;-)
i <3 WP!
What about renewals? No discount for those (my CSS upgrade is about to expire)?
Nevermind – I just found it! Thanks!
OmG!! OmG!! OmG!!, this is the best time for me to buy the domain map, but I am out of luck, dont have any way to buy from internet.
And am also interested about transferring registrar to WordPress.com from my current one. It would be great if WordPress starts supporting it.
I Like It………. :)
well, in Indonesia we heard it. I saw pic of a couple bought a plasma TV and they still wore their pajamas. it’s crazy. :mrgreen:
I love the internet.
Bud can’t say but wow…
I missed Black Friday.
20%? how about 100%? :lol:
that’s my wordpress!!!
i just found out about it :-(
I wish there is black friday in my country ;)
I just don’t know what to say except is it Easter yet?
Missed the sale, but WP greatness deserves …. full price anyway Woo Hoo !
Guess I missed out on this one…how about one a day after Christmas sale?
@Sheri : Yes i knew it from #wordpress.com in freenode earlier, and i am waiting for WordPress to start it. Because i have to change the registrar from the current one to some other as they are taking 35$ per year. If both are in WordPress then I might be able to make it in some lesser amount. I would ask the WordPress.com developers to keep the registrar transfer feature in mind for the future. It would be a good one.
oh this is great! thanks so much guys!
OH my WP…
shoot…missed it. How about you extend the date….
Black friday is awsome great sales!! The only thing is people are very rude and mean. Anyone who has gone to the mall on Black Friday knows that it can be a complete madhouse. Parking is impossible, workers are overwhelmed, and shoppers are cutthroat.
Dang it! I was traveling over the holiday and didn’t have internet access to see this in time :(
This just showed up as a link on my dashboard. Never saw it when originally posted. Tried to purchase videopress upgrade, but it showed the normal price versus the reduced rate.
Are you extending this sale or not?
I missed it I missed it :(((
next year I ll come back! :o))
Is there a timescheduling feature for bookmarks? ;o) [patent pending]
Haaaaa…..I missed it.
Say, can commenter’s able to get the special price ‘now’ ?
Sorry but we’re not extending the sale.
Might want to look at preventing the link from continuing to pop-up in people’s dashboards if you do not plan on extending.
Why is this still showing up on the dashboard?
huba buba i loved the idea.
in vietnam is not same
Just got this link in the dashboard, tried to upgrade and voila… no sale. Talk about a rush and a let down.
Good Idea, but yet a long distance for me to afford.
But I think it was few days ago.. Thanks WordPress
Talk about not publicizing it, and then announcing it just for the fact.
It sounds good for seller and buyer!
Amazing!! now I would have to think what would I want an upgrade for…? mmmhhh
HI increase your discount and period
Black Friday is pissing me off. My parents are bringing me everywhere. Which bugs me, so curse black Friday!
BlackFriday imis thatone after xmas will be fine
You are doing great job. Hope in future more upgrades will be available at free or pay.
