Nice deal, and still seems to be running.

Hi, can anyone help. I purchased this on 30.3.21. was going to install this week but the email has vanished. Could the company have deleted it?

Can anyone recommend a anti virus or security software for use on an iPad?!

Great first post. Thanks for posting and a belated welcome to hotukdeals (y)

Heat given. I was using sophos home the past few years and it is due to expire soon, so decided to give this a go (after some research). Bitdefender looks better from a feature and integration perspective, plus this covers 15 devices where sophos was limited to 10. Will move over my devices to this.

If this encourages people to put antivirus software on their devices then great. I already use Bitdefender total security (15 licences). I have installed it on various smartphones, tablets, and desktops that I have and family members e.g parents own. I had to remove ransomware before from my parents desktop and wouldn't wish to have to do that again!

Short answer: On chat , tell then that you want to stack. They ask you to activate the new key. Then they combine both in your account. I wanted to be on the safe side and first chatted to them and let them confirm that they can stack. Then - with the chat session still open - I bought the key. The then wanted me to activate the key to my account. Then chat person connected things.

AllOverTheShop

Do you add the key to your account then go onto chat or actually give customer service your key and they add it on to your existing sub for you?

svenherold

Just chat with them. They combine both licenses. I just did it, took 10 minutes. You can even ask them in the chat and they wait during you buy the second code and activate it. Then they merge both into one. 4 years for £42 as a business. Cracking deal. Thanks OP

This looks to be an excellent deal. I usually share one of my licences with a family member not at the same address (or network), does this family pack allow sharing one of the licence keys?

Same question!

Do you know for how long the key is valid after purchase? I have got a licence valid until May, so would like to wait a little bit before activating this one. Thanks! (y)

I had something similar with a VPN deal, raised a ticket and they merged the two together. Different product in this case but imagine its a similar process

bobsonx

I couldn't use my existing 3 months left subscription unfortunately on top of the new activation period... It seems to activate as a new product from this date for the next 730 days without taking into account the old one. I raised a ticket with Bitdefender, I hope they will respond soon.

Not really since they're not an authorised reseller and are not selling it in the form Microsoft supply. The following command will indicate retail, oem or volume licence but it doesn't prove legitimacy: slmgr /dli

you are welcome.

onenomi

Thank you so much for this deal, I was being presented with a renewal price of 44.99 for Norton 360 Premium. I use all the features and love this software. I never liked it before but after giving it another go a few years back, I found it's more refined and Norton have listened to the customers feedback and resolved a lot of complaints. It's not that intrusive and I can turn it off when I need to focus. The Norton Family is a life saver, I can manage my kids devices automatically from mobile, and remotely is the best.

maabus

Deal still active.

jwsg

I normally buy keys when they're on offer (like Black Friday week) and then apply them only when the previous sub runs out. If you dont its likely you'll just get two parallel subs and you'll have to try to get Norton to add one to the other. if you have Norton Security now and buy a 360 key (which they all seem to be now) I'd def. wait for the sub to finish before applying the new key and installing 360.

Thanks mate. I’ve just bought 4 years for roughly the price of what I was about to pay for 1 year!

rafaellomo

Would you know for how long the licence key is valid after being bought? I have got a plan for 3 devices ending in May. Should I wait with the activation? Or BitDefender would just expand it?

Benny5

I've currently got a month remaining on my current Total Security Bitdefender licence and they have offered renewal at £20.21 (5 devices x 1 year) While the posted offer is a very, very attractive to those with a requirement for a number of devices, I only have two. Should I just take a chance with the eBay offerings?

They 'claim' it's a retail licence, what they supply though.... Creativemark are the supplier. They offer 'stores' for a number of companies.

AndyJain

Agreed, I contacted their CS as well.. Not a legit site as multiple domains lead to the same page. Also, they are selling a "key" and not the licence.

KILL GATES spying software. Who pay for this? You can activate any version for free in one minute. They don't care,most important is to get spying software to your computer.

This has all been covered in posts on this thread.

You can resell oem keys, (minus volume keys/dreamspark etc) in the eu and uk, but not in the usa. There was court cases in both the usa and eu, they came to different conclusions. MS obviously likes you to use the usa conclusion.

Can you confirm where that quote you used is from in your previous post?* I can't find it in the court judgment. What I do read in the judgment doesn't invalidate what I've said. MAK/KMS - The average end user won't be able to activate Windows/Office with KMS. That's why MAK keys are used by 'grey market' resellers. (* - The place where I've found it is a post by a random on a Microsoft community forum and it certainly doesn't read like a legal statement)

vileda_the_best

They did and it is when buying volume licensing or possibly subscription based licencing with MSDN Technet or Visual Studio. Would be very old hat if you were using MAK keys rather than a key management store with Volume licencing. Further, MAK keys on those subscriptions have changed beyond all recognition in the last 20 years. You can not be talking either the Volume licencing as the installation for that is not openly available. That is not to be confused with Retail and OEM licencing that is the context here and the installation is freely available to download. The EU ruling is detailed here: https://curia.europa.eu/jcms/upload/docs/application/pdf/2012-07/cp120094en.pdf Specifically the nitty gritty is made here: "Under that directive, the first sale in the EU of a copy of a computer program by the copyright holder or with his consent exhausts the right of distribution of that copy in the EU. A right holder who has marketed a copy in the territory of a Member State of the EU thus loses the right to rely on his monopoly of exploitation in order to oppose the resale of that copy" "Where the copyright holder makes available to his customer a copy – tangible or intangible – and at the same time concludes, in return form payment of a fee, a licence agreement granting the customer the right to use that copy for an unlimited period, that right holder sells the copy to the customer and thus exhausts his exclusive distribution right. Such a transaction involves a transfer of the right of ownership of the copy. Therefore, even if the licence agreement prohibits a further transfer, the right holder can no longer oppose the resale of that copy." So the salient points are: Did the manufacturer agree to its use and take monies for it - yes Is windows s/w - yes is it made available freely to download - yes is the period of time for use limited - no Can the right holder oppose to that copy being resold - no At least within the EU and the UK at present.

adam.mt

Interestingly, the court confirmed that splitting licences, which is what many key sellers do (using MAK keys), is copyright infringement. Do you have a URL for your quote?

adam.mt

No, because it doesn't! I absolutely will admit if shown wrong, I have zero problem with that. The right to use 'OEM software' is exhausted after it's first use as per Microsoft's T&C that have been agreed to. Whether the licence is resold or not, which this ruling concerns, is irrelevant. There is no right to use the software on a different system. I believe the ruling doesn't dispute this (I've just looked at it together with some legally qualified opinions); it deals with resale. If I'm wrong then please explain why Microsoft's OEM terms are as they are. Perhaps you're more legally qualified than them? "OEM Software may NOT be transferred to another machine. Even if the original laptop, PC or server is no longer in use, or if the software is removed from the original hardware, the OEM licenses are tied to the device on which the software is first installed. As long as the license and device remain together, there is no limit to the number of times they may be transferred from one user to another. When transferring a PC to a new end user, the software media, manuals (if applicable), and Certificate of Authenticity label should be included. It is also advisable to include the original purchase invoice or receipt. The original end user cannot keep any copies of the software." source

vileda_the_best

the goal post and your false statements were these two: "(i) there's no right for that OEM key to work" followed by "1) The OEM licence lives and dies with the first computer it is applied to. " Microsofts own site confirming this be false: "JUDGMENT OF THE COURT (Grand Chamber) According to the decision of the European Court (Curia) of Justice on the 3rd of july in 2012, (C-128/11.) the sale of software is permitted even without the physical transport of the medium (CD/DVD/Pendrive). The transfer of the used license activation keys is permitted, furthermore the sale, transfer of the unused software licenses is legal regardless of whether the software license is on a medium or online license activation key. The software company shall not prevent the further sale of its license, and usage of its software, including OEM, DSP and ESD versions. The software company’s copyright is exhausted when its software has been sold for the first time. The individual sale of Volume License and the trading of online transferable licenses are permitted. (C-128/11., EU 2001/29/EG, 28., 2009/24/EK)" enough proof yet to place your hands up and say you were wrong?

The only advantage of buying from PC Pro is that you have somewhere to go, to complain in case of any issues, as you bought your licences from a "reputable" reseller...

jazid

This. Maybe the same method GroupOn use, ie sell via another platform/retailer (which in the case of the group on deal was really dodgy and post was removed). Really hard to know these days. Edit: strange how ms are not listed under the trusted partners on the bottom of the page https://store.pcpro.co.uk/

LukeMB

How do I know it is genuine? I need a few licences for a business, and consider buying those. Buying form PC PRO seems to be a good idea but I still wonder - how can they get such low prices? Somehow it seems doggy... so I may be better of buying £5 ebay copy...

matrixed79

Downloaded it from the Microsoft website and my code was accepted and get updates no problem.

geekonthepc

Thanks for your comments everyone - interesting views. Disappointed this has gone cold to be honest. This is a good price for what it is. If you’d rather take the risk with eBay that’s up to you, or there are free alternatives if that’s what you want. But if you do want an outright copy of Office 2019 for one device, this is a good deal in my mind. I don’t vote down good deals on whisky just because there are cheaper alternatives - they aren’t the same!
