    I must be doing something wrong because I can't get the discount to work.

    That makes two of us. Click the 'Buy' button, and you have choice of purchase at discount, or for regular price at Emsi. Click buy at discount and you go back to beginning. Hope someone figures this out, because it is a great price.

    There is nothing to figure out except that the Softpedia/Emsisoft offer is pure unadulterated baloney! Click on the discount & it takes you back to the beginning. Click on Emsisoft & it wants full retail price. Either way -- NO discount.

    More ap-cray from Emsisoft & I still haven't gotten my horsie.:thumbd:

    I haven't been around long enough to know much about Softpedia, but doesn't Emsisoft have a good reputation here at Wilders? I can't see the benefit to either of them of offering a fake discount. It gets them nothing, and would just drive potential customers away.

    I doubt that they intended it to be an out & out fake. It's probably just that they (1) have pathetically poor web-mastering skills &/or (2) lack the industriousness to double-check their work.

    AVG Internet Security 9 for $9.95 at THAT site is a good deal. {Deeelicious spam, trjam. ;) }. Otherwise, I didn't see any spectacular bargains there.

    I contacted Emsisoft sales via email with a link to this thread. I'll update if I hear anything.

    Softpedia published that offer without our knowledge. We had such a 65% discount available for a limited number of countries and they assumed it would be available for all. They have removed it now.

    Sorry for the confusion guys!

    However, the next special offer will arrive soon. :)

    Okay, but how are we to know whether or not it's the real thing or another phantom?

    By the way -- where's my horsie? :D

    Bought it few weeks ago when they had the same offer, and everything went fine. But also, every time i visit emsisoft site, i always get 50% off ( 20$) for customers from Croatia. It was like that as long as i remember. :thumb:

    Am I alone in finding it most irritating that some countries get a far better deal than others when it comes to software,it is a World recession we're in ya know.:cautious:

    This is what I get from their official site. I live in Sweden and we proably make 4-10 times as much money per month compared to Croatia and Romania, so I see why they get a permanent discount;
