ESET NOD32 20% Christmas Discount (Expires 31st Dec 2008)
« on: December 03, 2008, 08:23:11 AM »
Got an email offering a Christmas discount on NOD32. See below. I am not sure if this only applies to UK customers.

The odd thing is that you don't seem to be able to apply the discount to license renewals which is strange because this then make license renewals marginally more expensive than just buying a new license!

I have emailed ESET to ask if this is intentional or accidental - no response so far.

The PDF voucher referred to is attached.

To purchase to www.eset.co.uk/purchase and enter the code XMAS08 during checkout.

Thanks for sharing.

3 year license... that's new!? I renewed last year and they still only had 2 year licenses.

It doesn't apply to renewals of licenses - which is bizarre because they are now more expensive than buying a new license.

I must admit that even at the reduced prices I think I might change and use AVAST or AntiVir for free - it is all getting quite expensive if you have more than one computer.

Looking at the av-compare reviews AntiVir seems to be significantly better at both heuristic blocking and manual scans than NOD32 - the only downside is a few more false positives.

False positives.. couldn't be any worse than what AVG does... :-\

I am currently using Eset's ESS. If it weren't for the education discount ... things might have been different.
