ThemeForest Discount Promo Watch! – No Fake Coupon Codes

I’m using this space as a buyer’s guide, and promo-watch to report any possible ThemeForest & Envato Market promotions and discounts. Watch out for coupon code sites, they are all fake as Envato doesn’t use any coupons. Here real deals only.

Bundle Promotions & Offers

If you are looking for discounts on the Envato Market where ThemeForest is located in, there are two main promotion channels. One is known as “Envato Bundles” which offers bundled content packages for web designers. Each deal is different and may contain things like fonts, apps, mock ups, add-ons, icon packs and so on. You can get a lot of value and quality material to work with for the fraction of the price that you would pay for everything separately.

There are also the “Envato Offers” which are more frequent. You can subscribe to their mailing list and be notified every time there is a newly running offer available. You can get big discounts on all sorts of hand picked items from the Envato Market. This could include photo packs, email templates, themes, add-ons, modules, music & sound samples, and more.

Coupon Codes & Discounted Themes

There are no coupon codes for making regular ThemeForest purchases and the Envato Market neither supports them. This is largely because of the nature of how the marketplace operates, which consists of individual sellers who have the control to set their own pricing. So the company does not have the permission of authors to offer discounts on their own products.

This effectively means that themes, templates and some other items cannot be discounted. Even thought there are plenty of websites claiming to offer so called ThemeForest coupon codes and campaign activation links. They are simply cashing in on false hopes and I suggest to stay away from such scams.

About Envato & ThemeForest

The 2008 launched company has set up several seller-buyer portals to satisfy the creative needs of web designers and developers, all under the “Envato Market“. The most popular marketplace, “ThemeForest” is the leading portal for themes, and other shops such as CodeCanyon, VideoHive, AudioJungle, GraphicRiver, PhotoDune and 3dOcean complete the spectrum of designer content. Each offering highly rated products for all aspects of designing and developing websites. All content is manually checked by staff to maintain strict quality standards.

  1. Finally an honest and very thorough explanation! Wasted too much time on other bulls**t sites. Although this effectively means that I will have to pay for my Joomla Template, full price. Oh well. It’s much better than being infected with malware. I once downloaded a nulled version which had my hosting company suspend my account. A lesson well learned!

    Thanks anyway!

    • I understand that a lot of people, especially when starting out don’t want to invest too much on the layout. What I would prioritize instead is to take plenty of time and do your homework on what’s a suitable theme to achieve the goals of your website or business. A one-time good investment is often the most affordable. And there are plenty of no good themes out there as well. Some are just too bloated but I am the simplistic kind myself.

      Cutting corners and taking the free-way can be a good option for a lot of people. But the fact is that themes are an important part of the security of a website. Commercial themes downloaded from reputable sources are often less likely to contain security holes. Non reputable, suspicious sources (especially nulled) may contain backdoors, malware or hidden backlinks.

      Appreciate your feedback, thanks N!

    • At least they’ve had the Cyber Monday Creative Bundle, which in 2015 had over 80 design items bundled together for 39usd. These packs can be great value because the Evanto/ThemeForest team knows how to pick good stuff! So being on the lookout during Black Friday/Cyber Monday could definitely be worth it.

      Hope helps. Thanks.
