1Password is arguably one of the best password management system around, and certainly one of our favorite. Today, it is on sale at the Mac App Store for $34.99. At regular $50, this is matching the best price we have seen on the Mac App Store and within $7 of a limited promo code deal from over 3 months ago. We haven’t seen it go for less on the Mac App Store in over a year.

However, those with access to a .edu email address can get the Mac app for even less. Over on the official AgileBits shop, 1Password for Mac is just $27.99 using a .edu email address during checkout. That’s matching our previous limited promo price and the best we have seen in over a year. Student and faculty members are eligible for the discounted rate and should checkout using a .edu email. If you don’t have a .edu email, you can checkout with your regular email but you should have an active student/faculty ID available in case you’re contacted by AgileBits

Keep in mind, you will get updates faster purchasing the app directly from Agile, but there is no iCloud syncing like the Mac App Store version. Agile’s purchase does support Dropbox for cross-platforming syncing though (Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone).
