    Does anybody know how the educational discount with Kaspersky products work? I emailed a sales rep at Kav and they say they have 50% off all Kav products but only through resellers.

    I checked with 4 resellers that are listed at Kav's site and 2 of them responded saying that the discount is only available for Workstation version. :mad: I emailed Kav again but they havent responded.

    So either the sales rep at Kav didnt tell me the details or that those resellers dont want to deal with selling just 1 product at a less profitable price. :(
