This section is for posts relating to deals/discounts found on the web.

So any kind of special offers or discounts relating to software are acceptable in that section (the offers should be at a minimum be computer related).

We will allow posts from people with a financial stake in the offer - but you must make clear your affiliation with the company.

And do not spam the section with repeated multiple posts.

And hey if you find a good (software) deal on the web, please post it - might be nice if this section turned into a useful resource!

NEW GUIDELINE MAY 13, 2011 : I think in order to better organize the found discounts section, and make it easier for people to find stuff long term, posters should try to post the the daily/weekly deal-site announcements either:
  • In a single thread for the giveaway site (giveaway of the day thread for example)
  • Or in a thread collecting all discounts past and future for a given product.

Hello everyone, my first post here, havent read all the rules yet, but I have news about a nice discount. I recently bought a great new pc with window 7. It freaked me out with the difference with my 10 year old first and only pc with XP, and 1.1 usb ports.  :o So the first thing I hate is the media center, what a mess. Well I remembered an old media program called Real Player. Checked it out and luckily its at $40 now, ( couple weeks ago), $10 off, total, $42. I love it because its a close copy of the XP media center. (How did they get away with that?)  ;) And the discount helped after buying the new pc  Oh theres a free version that is very good, I used it to see if it was worth the then $50, I decided it was, lo and behold I was just in time for the 20% off. I will most likely return here as Im a DieHard Everything has to be on special person.  8)

FREE is the best discount I know of.

With me being out of work in recent years I found it difficult
if not impossible to rent movies or DVD's from local video
rental stores or even get out to watch a movie here or there
at area theaters, just haven't had the money to go out.

I thought about getting cable TV but again I'm barely
scraping by for the high speed internet through Spectrum
each month let alone bundling phone and cable TV too.

As recently as last week an online pal of mine in another
part of the country turned me onto a program called Kodi
, it's a program for your computer and they even have an
app for your tablet or smart phone, its basically a home
theater program that turns your computer, laptop, tablet,
or smart phone into a home theater system. The program
itself is rather mundane but it's magic lies in it's many
installable and downloadable Add-Ons (Content Providers)
that give you access to hundreds and even thousands of
online media repositories.....latest films and music videos
and just about every film you can think of can be found.
Programs, games, and music Add-Ons as well.

It even has an Add-On for YouTube and other such sites
that allow you to search and play the content in Kodi.

It's really easy to learn, their is quite a cult fallowing on
the internet for this gem of a program and how to video
tutorials are available in the program itself as well as on
YouTube for adding Add-Ons and Media Sources.

And did I mention all of the above is completely FREE?
Just run a Google Search for "Kodi" to download the
computer program, and you can get there app on the
Google Playstore for your devices such as tablets and
smart phones.  Enjoy.....I know I have been.
