    I guess this a question of a cheapskate.:D
    I have seen various boxed copies of AVs that with rebates end up free or nearly so.

    With the soon to be introduction in the US of KIS/KAV7 I would suspect that we might see those left to be reduced and rebated to end up a freebie.
    Why couldn't a person buy one of those, and keep it a year or two to use when his current license expired?

    Best,
    Jerry

    I would suspect that we might still see those left to be reduced and rebated to end up a freebie...in a year or two.

    Hi Monty,
    Thanks for the reply. I currently have a boxed copy of KAV6 that is unopened, and I plan to use it when my current license expires in 298 days.:D

    I don't think the downloaded keys work that way, but am not sure.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    LOL - Here is an answer from a cheapskate - that is how I buy all my AV software. If I see it "free after rebate" I buy it, then install when I need it. Every one has worked so far, though Trend Micro did stiff me on a rebate.

    If they stiffed you, I would send something to their rebate processing center about it (most of those places are just centers that process rebates for many companies). I used to buy a lot of software that was free after rebate. Only a handful never mailed me back my check. Most of the free programs haven't been used and are probably obsolete now though.

    The KAV 6 license starts the subscription when the product is activated.
