If you or someone you know owns a Mac and could benefit from apps like 1Password or TextExpander, you’re going to want to check out this promotion from the folks at Parallels.¬†It’s called the Black Friday Mac App Bundle, and it can save¬†you up to 90% on 8 top-shelf Mac apps and services.

Included in this package is Parallels Desktop 12, which¬†allows you to run Windows and other operating systems on your Mac, the popular password management app 1Password (the latest ‘Families’ edition), and key shortcut creator TextExpander. We have a full breakdown of the apps below.

  • Parallels Desktop 12 for Mac –¬†Run Windows on your Mac – normal price $80
  • 1Password Families –¬†The Best Password Manager for your family and all their devices (Includes 5 people) – normal price $60
  • PDFpen Pro for Mac 8¬†–¬†All-Purpose PDF Editing Tool – normal price $125
  • Pocket Premium –¬†Save articles, web pages, videos, or pretty much anything to view later – normal price $45
  • Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac –¬†Keep your Mac and sensitive information protected – normal price $40
  • TextExpander –¬†Type faster using your personal shortcut library – normal price $50
  • Hotspot Shield Elite VPN (2 Years) –¬†Lets you access blocked content and makes you private and secure online – normal price $50
  • Acronis Online Backup 500GB for 1-year included –¬†Backup your files online and securely access from any computer – normal price $60

So essentially you’re paying the $80 for Parallels Desktop 12, and getting 7 apps for free. And even if you don’t think you need Kaspersky’s Internet Security or the Hotspot VPN, apps like 1Password and TextExpander make this¬†a special offer. Those two apps alone would run you more than $100.

The Parallels team says the promotion¬†is good for a week, so you have a little time to think about it, but if I were you I wouldn’t wait. While we do¬†see these Mac app bundles fairly often, they rarely include this many widely-recognized titles. You can purchase or find more info on Parallels’ website.
