    I am sure hoping that DownloadCrew starts selling BG's Premium Protection package soon. Bullguard wants $100 US for a one year subscription...:eek:

    You must be kidding... oh wait that's true :D

    They are adopting the long-term subscriptions as many huge companies like MS, Adobe, etc. It seems this trend is the future for most of software vendors and will be slowly accepted by the majority, although apparently these services heavily rely on the "cloud" technology (security intended for users without a shred of common sense, of course :D)

    As for the price, it's not that bad considering all services offered and the number of pcs protected.

    We're discussing this with them, but they want to keep a premium price point, so it's ongoing.

    We've just started selling Bitdefender Sphere [2-YR], from today, and should be bringing in a world exclusive [3-YR] option next week.

    Thanks for the update Chris! Good news on the Bitdefender front, not so good news on the Bullguard Premium pricing so far...;)

    Bullguard is now offering a 70% discount on the premium product, Don't have a link--got it through the mail....An issue is do you trust Bullguard's internal security enough to give it what amounts to an identity thieves paradise?

    i remember a while back you could get it ridiculously cheap. imo at the regular price its a bit ridiculous for that 100$ for the year. i would never pay that per year which is why even though i love some like dr web as a example i will not buy a lic because the same protection quality can be found for much less. im not a huge bullgaurd fan, it was a good overall program, but i would not even pay 50$ for the year imo

    Can you qualify that please? I'd be extremely surprised to see BullGuard offer 70% from their Premium Protection product. I'm signed up to their emails and haven't received a 70% off promotion. I don't want to see people posting facts about discounts which may not exist.

    It was only released two months ago and BullGuard have to pay Experian for the monthly identity protection service, which is worth about £95/year alone.

    I know our BullGuard Premium Protection "buy price" and it's very high. The 2-YR and 3-YR versions won't be stocked by us as you'd be shocked how much they'd cost us to buy from BullGuard.

    True. If it offers the same services as Experian's Protect My ID which goes for $16 a month in the US, it would be a bargain at a year's $49 bundled with BullGuard's full-blown suite.
