Even if you’re eschewing Black Friday and all the shopping that goes with it, we’ve got a deal for you that’s too good to pass up: a free year of remote backup from CrashPlan.
CrashPlan is running a fantastic Black Friday promotion. Starting at 6AM EST they’re offering all their plans for 100% off–we just picked up a family plan, normally $119 a year, for $0. Every two hours they’ll be incrementally decreasing the discount until Monday evening when the sale ends (even if you miss the early part of the sale the discount will still be 42% off come Monday).
This is an absolute fantastic deal on a service everyone can use. If you followed along with our guide to using CrashPlan to backup your data at a friend’s house for free, this is a perfect time to add in a year of backup service to add another player to your backup routine.
