Avira not only has promotional offer together with VNU Publications for ComputerActive and Personal Computer World reader, it also giveaways free license key of Avira AntiVir PersonalEdition Premium (now known as Avira AntiVir Premium) exclusively for the readers of Dennis Publications magazines, Computer Buyer, Computer Shopper and PC Pro (but anyone can register).
The offer for Dennis Publications readers is less attractive though. Only 3 months, or 90 days free licensed subscription period is given away. Whatsoever, it’s still longer that default 30 days trial period given by test key on Avira website, and always, nothing beats free.
