Update on February 5: Dropbox today joined The Productivity Pack bundle for its final week. Dropbox is offering new purchasers a free 3-month trial of Dropbox Pro, as well as to those who already paid the $60. You have eight days to get the offer (it expires at 11:59pm PST on February 13).
The original story is below.
Productivity app makers Evernote, LastPass, Pocket, and Wunderlist have teamed up to launch a bundle that gives you a one-year subscription to the premium versions of the four services for $59.99. Available at AProductiveYear.com, “The Productivity Pack” is supposed to add up to 68 percent in savings.
That figure naturally assumes that you planned to buy one-year subscriptions to Evernote Premium, LastPass Premium, Pocket Premium, and Wunderlist Pro. Normally that would cost you about $185.
Pocket told VentureBeat it was “the organizing force” behind the bundle. As for when the deal was put together, the companies “began work on the actual site in mid-December.” The goal was to offer the deal “by early January” in hopes of helping customers support their New Year’s resolutions and goals.
Here’s the pitch:
- Use Evernote Premium to collect the inspiration and ideas that will inform your work in 2015, while accessing notebooks offline, annotating PDFs, and more.
- Use LastPass Premium to generate and keep track of all your passwords, while kicking your security into high gear with multifactor authentication.
- Keep the articles, videos, and websites that interest you available at all times with Pocket Premium‘s powerful organization, search, and Permanent Library features.
- Tackle multiple to-do lists with Wunderlist Pro, giving you unlimited access to collaboration features so you can assign tasks to family, friends, and coworkers.
Of course, if you only use (or see yourself using) two or three of these apps, you may be on the fence. That’s why the quartet is throwing in an eight-week digital subscription to The New York Times, which gives you unlimited access to nytimes.com and NYTimes’ smartphone apps.
Also, if you already have one or more of these subscriptions, you’re in luck as the deal still applies to you: “This bundle offers an awesome opportunity for existing subscribers to any of these apps to get an additional year of premium service at a heavily discounted price,” a Pocket spokesperson told VentureBeat. “The additional year will take effect once your current paid period ends.”
The offer ends on February 13, 2015. You’ve got a month to decide if you want to pay once to try all four of these premium offerings. Remember: A year from now, you can choose to renew a subset of them or none at all.
