BitsDuJour is a software deal of the day website with offerings for PC and Mac users. All programs are offered digitally, and the software developers usually answer shoppers’ questions directly on the daily deals website. However, the software deals usually focus on highly specialized programs, so if you have a need for those programs, you probably already own them or similar software. Fortunately, BitsDuJour allows you to demo products before you buy them, and sometimes the software is free. If you’re looking for software to optimize your computer usage, BitsDuJour has bargains on all types of programs.

BitsDuJour has a wide list of software available on the site. There are programs for home computers, businesses and small offices, for both PCs and Macs. All software is digital, so you don’t have to wait for shipping. Free demos and full descriptions accompany every deal, and if you have questions, you can count on the actual developers to give you answers. If you have any problems with the software, you’ll have to speak to the developer because BitsDuJour does not offer refunds.

The BitsDuJour website takes a little while to understand. The featured deal page has one format, and the All Deals tab follows a different format. It’s easy to get lost at first, but once you understand the site, you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for quickly. You do not need an account to place an order, but the accounts do allow you to leave comments and questions for software developers.

BitsDuJour sends out some of the most helpful emails we’ve seen. Each email shows the day’s featured software deal with its bargain price and the upcoming software to look out for. In addition to the daily emails, you can subscribe to the BitsDuJour RSS feed, and you can share bargains through social media.

BitsDuJour has some of the best customer service options we’ve seen. You can leave comments, questions and reviews on any software page, and there is a forum section to promote community involvement. BitsDuJour regularly updates the blog with news about the site, and the FAQs section has excellent answers for your questions. If you have any other questions, you can email a customer service representative.
