Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2015 CG discounts

Is it just us, or do the Black Friday sales get bigger every year? When we ran our round-up of seasonal deals last year, we found 15. This year, there are 50, some spilling into Cyber Monday, or even into December.

In the list below, we’ve rounded up the best deals on CG software, plugins and resource collections, like models and HDRIs. (We had to draw the line somewhere, so we haven’t included training.)

We’ve covered hardware if it’s specifically graphics related: for example, professional workstations. Nvidia has a round-up of deals on its GeForce gaming GPUs, and Polygon has a list of deals on general-purpose hardware.

Where possible, we’ve listed deals provided directly by the developers, but at the foot of the story, you can find a few unique deals provided only through resellers. (Note that some are only availble in specific territories.)

The offers are in date order, so if you’re reading this after 27 November itself, scroll down to see deals that are still valid. And obviously, the exact cut-off times may vary according to which time zone you’re in.

In addition, some deals require you to enter coupon codes. Below, we’ve listed codes we could only find in emails and newsletters: the rest you can find by clicking through the links below.

Updated 27 November: We’ve added in a few more deals, including 3D-Coat, Allegorithmic, e-on software, Next Limit and The Pixel Farm. Chocofur has also updated the coupon code required to claim its 60% discount.
