I've noticed that quite a few design bundle sites have popped up lately. I've also been contacted by a couple of these sites offering me to be part of their bundles, but I've said no.

The prices of their bundles are insanely low (but I'm getting used to that in this business...) and I don't know how careful they are when it comes to legal matters so it feels a bit risky. Some of the sites looks pretty fishy as well, so who knows if they would report their sales honestly, or rip you off.

But I suppose if they get thousands of downloads during the short time the bundle is for sale it could still give you a few hundred/thousand dollars, assuming they're not crooks.

So, has anyone tried these sites? If so, which of them are trustworthy? And how much did you earn?

Hi by bundle sites you mean like where they often make bundles with large amount of graphics, such as graphics, clipart fonts,500 logos and sell for 30 bucks?  They are spreading...
But also depends on the site...

The amount of discounts and coupons you see around is also crazy... After a while people will apply 30% to 50% discounts...

Design got really cheap in this day and age...

Mixed feelings.  Yes, INSANELY low.  But I'm such a sucker... every time they advertise they have a new bundle I have to buy it.  If I love one font in the bundle I figure it's totally worth it, it's usually not much more than one font with 20 more thrown in.  Trust me, I would never just go buy fonts and lightroom presets.  They likely do very well.  Likely very worth it for the artist.

What graphic designer doesn't love a bargain?

I can't criticize anyone who wants to sell bundles and such, because it seems to be a trend. The same as subscriptions with no limits...

However if you were able to sell your own bundles from your website instead of a market, maybe you could make more money....

Which sites are you buying from?

Deal Jumbo and Creative Market.  They send a LOT of e-mails with bundles.  I've used a few of the fonts, but will never be able to use 70-80% of what I get.
