    I thought that it might be best if I create a thread instead of sending an email since there are probably more "Winners" in this forum that might wonder the same.

    So. I won an ESET Smart Security license last spring in the 100,000 Wilders members give away (Many Thanks Indeed!). But it is about to expire 2011-03-29 and since I am still in love with ESET I will need to renew soon.

    But my Question is if I will be able to renew the license that I won,
    or do I need to buy a new license at full price?

    I wonder because many of the Giveaway licenses are not re-newable so to speak.

    Cheers!

    Contact you local ESET reseller directly, explain the situation and they will likely renew for you.

    If I go to my Dutch Eset site and click on buy and then choose to renew a license, they ask for the license details, so if you'll enter them they'll get checked before you pay anything.

    I would contact your local distributor. The licenses are probably NFR licenses which cannot be renewed through the normal channels.

    Yes we can always hope :D
    But so far ESET has been rather quiet in this thread :doubt:

    dmaasland pretty much hit it on the nose. Generally the cards we give away for free one year memberships are NFR licenses which is the same as a trial but extended to a full year rather than the normal 30-day period. You would have to contact your local ESET distributor to verify but most will not offer renewal pricing from an NFR license.

    I see.

    Well I guess that I just buy a new license at full price then as everybody else ;)

    I had the NFR license also for two years and when that feature expired for me, I called them to renew. They made it really easy to re-order. It is well worth it.
