Freebies at Plugin Boutique

Plugin Boutique is a great site to buy discount plugins, for sure, and they take Paypal, which is super convenient. I am in no way affiliated with Plugin Boutique nor with any site, but I do shop there monthly.

Having an account there is good, too, because they keep all of your licenses and serials in your account pages for your convenience! If you've ever had a computer up and die on you then you know how amazing this feature is. Also, every month, they offer a great piece of usually expensive commercial software as a bonus with any purchase. All in all this is one of my favorite retailers, and I'm glad to share them with you. Of course, i
