AppSumo, which is sort of like GroupOn or MacHeist for web apps, is offering $1,543 worth of credits towards developer tools and services like Linode, Heroku, Recurly and MongoHQ for $47. Most significantly, they're offering six months of SendGrid's e-mail deliverability service, valued at $479. If you've been meaning to check out any of these tools, this might be a good opportunity to do so, but please do note that these offers are mostly only available for new users.
As a special offer for ReadWriteWeb readers, the first three readers to comment below with a way to get in touch (e-mail, Twitter, Skype handle, etc.) will receive a bundle for free (please note that Echo, the third party application we use for comments, does not share e-mail addresses with us so you'll need to leave some sort of contact information in your comment). All three bundles are spoken for. Thanks everyone!
