    hxxp://www.antivirussales.com/

    It has some very steep deals on the website for various security solutions.

    It says on the footer that it's an accredited business according to the BBB. It also has a C.O.M.O.D.O sticker as well. It may be genuine, but has anyone used it before?

    Good Evening! Cvette...when I tried to enter the Web Address it stated Website Protocol not recognized...and the hxxp...is odd...http maybe...my advice would be exercise caution. Sincerely...Securon

    People enter Hxxp where live links are either forbidden or the poster is unsure of what may lie at the site in question. It is intentional. :) As for the site, I've never heard of it.

    Hi Securon! Dave explained it perfectly in his reply. I simply do that for any links I am weary of so that no one mistakenly clicks on them.

    Good Evening! Dave0291...thanks for the clarification...the website seems to be professional in it's general layout. It's head office is in the U.K. The American affliate is located in Oregon...with no contact phone number...only a PO Box. Consumer beware if they don't have an 800 N American number...refunds might turn out to be difficult. Be careful...Sincerely...Securon

    Downloads Crew has Kaspersky Internet Security for $19.99! This is exactly what I was looking for, and even cheaper than AntiVirusSales. Thanks Securon!

    It looks legitimate, and if one day I decide to buy an antivirus again, I would possibly buy from there.

    It really does have some great discounts. I've purchased Kaspersky IS for $19.99 USD from Download Crew earlier. I'm hoping the Bitdefender refund process is moderately fast. I've heard so many bad things.

    The so called "regular prices" are misleading / fake........

    i.e. :

    Avira Official Store:
    Downloadcrew Store:

    Avira's price is US$14.99 from downloadcrew, but the one from antivirussales is US$29.99 still cheaper than Avira's store US$35.33 (or $38.99 if you buy it directly from their homepage).

    Re read my post #15......

    US$29.99 (Avira's store US$35.33) means discount 15%


    The liars =

    AntiVirusSales does seem to have some inaccurate numbers, you are right anon.

    Kaspersky Internet Security is running smoothly for me so far. I've changed browsers too to Firefox from Chrome. Chrome has become extremely unstable for me in the last few releases.

    I have not heard from Bitdefender in over a week now so I'm giving up hope on receiving a rebate.

    If you are referring to the 'regular price' above then yes, however it's not the first time I see that kind of "strategy sales'..

    It looks somehow cheap than buying from official site.
    But, is it safe or not. LOL

    And, those license granted are only in US/EUR or international?

    Very confusing, I must add. For example, Bitdefender and Kaspersky codes are strictly geo-restricted for each territory and antivirussales.com are located in the US (despite including a UK postal address).

    They also do not charge VAT - a legal requirement for trading in Europe - on any of their sales.

    So I don't know how they can provide codes which work in Europe, from the US.

    Personally, I wouldn't take the risk for the sake of a few dollars or euros additional discount. Life is too short.

    Ya right. Even though, products like Microsoft office suites, also got geo-restricted as well. Aww.
