Mac Software Bundles
With Mac Bundles, you can buy several Mac apps together with a big discount--many times you can get hundreds of dollars of Mac software for anywhere from about $9.99 to $49.99 USD (though sometimes there could be freebie bundles, "pay what you want" or more expensive bundles). Most of the software bundles are only available for a limited time.

My Mac Bundle Story
I used to use PCs more than Macs, but I love trying out different technology and got a Mac in 2008.
After I got a Mac, I became fascinated by all the software available for Macs that they don't have for PCs and might have bought a few Mac apps before I found out about Mac Bundles. My introduction to Mac Bundles came when I found out about MacHeist sometime before MacHeist 3 which was offered in March 2009.
MacHeist was more than just a bundle though, they had crazy puzzles for you to solve to get free software before they had a bundle. I liked their videos introducing the puzzles and getting the free software from solving the puzzle, but the puzzles were quite hard and I had to get help on them. MacHeist isn't quite as active as they used to be though, but when they do have a bundle, you can bet it's a good one!
Anyway, after I found out about MacHeist, I found out about other sites that offered Mac bundles like MacUpdate. It seemed like a new bundle site was popping up all the time. I was buying a lot of Mac bundles and was happy with getting lots of apps cheaper than they'd be if I'd paid full price. Some of the apps I use a lot, but some of them I never use! Eventually, I had lots of Mac software and so most Mac Bundles being offered had software I already had so I didn't buy as many Mac Bundles anymore.
This year there are less Mac bundles than there used to be in the Mac bundle heyday. I still like to find Mac Bundles going on because sometimes you can find some good software that way. I love it when there's a new bundle that has software I'd never heard of before, then I get to check out all the apps and see if it's worth buying!
Despite my love for Mac Bundles, I don't solely use Macs. I like PCs too because they are better for gaming and have some apps I like that aren't on the Mac. However, there aren't too many exciting PC software bundles unless you count the game bundles that have become popular.
