FAQ

What is Briefcase?
Briefcase is a membership-based service that grants you access to a curated selection of top-tier software for just $49/month. The software is specifically chosen for entrepreneurs with growing businesses.
What tools are included?
Currently, there are 35+ tools in Briefcase that is constantly growing and evolving along with our members. You can optimize SEO, quickly design graphics and ebooks, manage your accounting, find sales leads, auto-generate content and so much more. See all the products here.
How do I know these tools are good?
Every tool in Briefcase has been vetted by AppSumo (the team behind Briefcase). For the past 7 years, AppSumo has been the leader in finding the best up-and-coming tools to help you grow your business. We were in on the ground floor of Evernote, Dropbox, and MailChimp!
If you decide to remove a tool from Briefcase, does my access go away
If you’ve activated/redeemed the tool, you will continue to be able to use it indefinitely. So make sure you’ve activated anything you are interested in. As we add more tools to the offering, you get access to those as well (at no added expense!) Your Briefcase membership continues to increase in value over time as we adjust the toolset because you always access past tools you’ve redeemed, and gain the use of new ones.
If I cancel Briefcase, do I still have access to the tools I activated?
You’ll still have a login for those systems but in order to get access, you'll have to subscribe to each individual tool on your own.
Why shouldn’t I just buy these tools on my own?
Buying these tools outright would be very expensive. Most of the tools individually cost at least $50/month on their own. So the smartest move is to get the entire selection of Briefcase tools for our $49 price tag.
Can I cancel at any time?
Absolutely - just cancel before your next billing cycle to avoid getting charged for the next month.

If I sign up now for $49, will the price ever go up for me, say, in a year from now?
While we can never predict the future, we can say we have no plans to raise pricing any time soon and believe deeply in grandfathering to reward early adopters. We can promise that if anything ever changes in the far future, we’ll be sure to over-communicate any changes to you well in advance so you can make an informed decision if that time ever comes.
I’ve opted into Briefcase. How do I get access to the tools?
Once you’re a Briefcase member, you’ll receive redemption codes for each tool you activate. Just click “Redeem this offer” and follow the redemption process to start using them.
I’m not sure that I’ll use this [accounting, marketing, design, etc] software tool. Should I still activate it?
If you think you’ll need this tool in the future and don’t want to risk losing access to it then make sure you activate it. That way you’ll make sure you always have access even if we discontinue that tool on Briefcase.
