AVG Full 1 year license & 40 Snapfish Prints (new account) 99p with Trialpay offer

9
Found 7th Dec 2010
Downloading the free AVG 2011 from CNET download.com and saw an ad banner that I would normally dismiss saying get full version free. Investigated and found that one of the offers that you can complete is with HP snapfish (reputable so thought I'd give it a go). Signed up for a new account with snapfish from the Trialpay link uploaded 40 photos ordered them to be printed (40 free prints for new customers), paid the 99p for delivery and instantly was sent the license key for AVG full package for a year!

Best experience ever with one of these type deals - now have the far superior AVG full and 40 photos on the way that I didn't need but have only paid 99p and only took 10 minutes!!!

edit: use this link trialpay.com/che…MOa rather than the direct link to snapfish as you need to sign up through Trial Pay rather than directly to get this!

You need to register with trial pay first and then choose the snapfish deal so I put the link where you complete a trial pay sign up

Thanks for the info - unfortunately no saved link was submitted with the deal and you mentioned that it was a snapfish offer in the opening post.

Is this simply the standard trail pay link that comes with most freedownloads where you select a merchant to register with ? Or do you have a direct link to the special trail pay offer so we can review further (not one for the general CNET free download), thanks

I sent a message through contact us with the link here sorry for the faffing around - this post is becoming more hassle than I thought, and it doesn;t seem to be well received anyway. I'm normally the biggest sceptic regarding these but this one just works!

If you check the AVG forums, they are losing 'custom' faster than you can say jack flash at the mo. This latest incantation is the most buggy version yet. It has even screwed people's pc's so badly that they can't even be recovered. Some are lucky though and can do a restore but most are saying they'll never use AVG again. Now, I have been an avid AVG user for many years now but it seems that every time they get their act together and get a stable release they go and upgrade to a 'new' version and use us as guinea pigs. They don't seem to show any remorse for it either. I don't appreciate being a beta tester without being asked first.

Oh, and it's not just the free version that's affected either. The full 'paid for' version is exactly the same and has produced some catastrophic results with people's computers. I'm gonna wait a while for the dust to settle before I think about upgrading yet. They don't appear to have a solid date for when support for version 9 will end so I will bide my time...

Just food for thought.

I regret downloading this.. and i paid £0 for the full version...

I know exactly where you are coming from - their recent update did screw Windows 7 64-bit machines to the point where recovery software and registry editing were required and the release from AVG was very light on justification for the lack of testing ... However (and I think a large however) ... I believe that their apparent hastiness stems from their speed to adapt to new threats, in particular the latest batch of rogue antivirus malware that even prevent clean boot into safe mode. I have had to perform some very tricky (i.e not just run malwarebytes) removals on a LOT of peoples machines lately that had AVG free or other AV programs running and updated, the Full version of AVG (business at least) seems to be rock solid against these however.

Like I said totally understand your points of view but I am sticking with it until someone shows me something substantially better as I can deal with the technical hiccups.
