    Monday the 16th.

    However, you will be able to automatically upgrade the 2010 build you get on Friday to 2011, next week. Good news.

    We have another massive tier-1 AV giveaway lined up for later in the month, too. Will finalise a date for this tomorrow.

    thanks Chris. As a current satisfied customer with your software store, this is a great deal. I still tell folks you have the best deals around, at least that I have found.

    Thanks. We've kind neglected the full promo giveaways lately as we've been busy with CNET Download.com - a promo widget is on their homepage.

    However, we're now back on the case. Four lined up for August, with the biggest one we've organised for years - which has taken months to finalise - finally going live later in the month. We hope.

    Chris.

    Does this have to be installed the day of the offer or do we get sent a key?

    No :) That was a Lavasoft request (for the Ad-Aware Plus promo) and there was nothing we could do about that.

    Grab the code and hold on to it. One code per email address though.

    So is it possible to download BD now and trial it a couple days then enter the promo code once we get it in email? Or will the download for this promo be different/tweaked than the BD site's antivirus?

    No, use the build we provide on Friday (that BitDefender gave us yesterday). It's the regular full build, but it has been designed to work with this promo/codes. However, you can download and install anytime and it will update to 2011, on release next week.

    Also, it's something like <200Kb, designed to download the relevant components from the BD server.

    Chris.

    BitDefender should pay the folks for testing their faulty products :(

    Great offer!

    it's valid from 12 CST

    from wikipedia : - "Central European Summer Time (CEST) is one of the names of the Daylight saving time offset using in the UTC+2 time zone, 2 hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time."

    It's 1.23 pm CEST so offer should be available now...
