Here is a quick heads up about an upcoming promotional offer where you can grab a free license of
BitDefender Antivirus 2010 worth $25. The promotion is run by the popular UK website v3.co.uk and runs for just 24 hours starting midday CEST Friday 13 August and ends on midday CEST Saturday 14 August.
Since the promotion is yet to start, we don’t have much information about how to get the license and if it will be valid for BitDefender antivirus 2011 as well. Going by the past offers on v3, expect tough time while grabbing the free license due to extremely high demand. Last time when they ran a promotion for free ad-aware plus, many users had to face slow connections and sluggish website. Most probably they will ask you to register an account on their website before grabbing the free license, so you better be prepared and get an account if you don’t have one already.
From the promo page,
our exclusive BitDefender Antivirus 2010 [1-PC, 1-Year], worth $24.95/£16.99, available free of charge for everyone, for 24 hours, between miday CEST Friday 13 August to midday CEST Saturday 14 of August.
BitDefender Antivirus 2010 is regarded amongst the best by many users. It is known for its proactive detection of new threats and fool-proof handling of the existing ones. There is no reason for anyone who is currently using a Free antivirus for Windows to give Bitdefender a shot.
Keep an eye on http://store.v3.co.uk, the offer commences midday CEST Friday 13 August.
Update: The offer is now live. Go here to download the installable and then here to get the free license.
Update 2: The offer has been changed to UK only. One can try giving a random UK address, but having a UK based VPN is better.
Update 3: Good news. It has started working for all. Just make sure you give UK address while registering.
Thanks everyone who tipped us.
