I downloaded my 3 year subscription over top of my free 1 year version that I had and it still says 1 year not 3 years. So with my referral from the recommendation why did not my 1 year change to 3 years? Is there some way to change my date. I can't seem to do it under Registration.
Do I have to uninstall my 1 year free one before I download the 3 year one?
Lemme know. I went in and added my device as well and it showed me my Windows 8 laptop. So what gives?
Could be only the time needed to update the portal... The license is issued when you buy/receive it and not when you donwload/install the software, so, it won't "help" to uninstall one to install the other. The other is already issued and working.
The best things in life are free.

Ok, I just gave one of my recommendations to a friend, he downloaded from my recommendation link, installed it, registered it, got an email from Avast to confirm and all he got was Avast Free Antivirus not Avast Internet Security and after he registered he did not have the 3 years onto his date.
So the recommendation thing is not working. He just 1 year of Avast Antivirus. So much for recommending Avast to anyone.

It says right here on my recommendation list:
Friends: 21
Internet Security
(1 PC, 3 years)
$99.99

Another confusing thing is, why does it say $99.99 at the bottom?

So is he going to get Avast Internet Security for 3 years or what?

I've recommended and installed avast! on 14 of my friends computers. I've also sent an email about that, but haven't got any answer, which is a bit irritating.  :-\

I recommended to 44 now. You should be able to sign in to this: https://my.avast.com/en-us/#recommendations  and after that you should get a graphic telling you how many you gave a recommendation to and you will see a download link for a 3 year subscription. Look at this graphic that I am including and you will see what it looks like. And see my download link on the bottom right of the picture. I have done this and now have a three year subscription of Avast Internet Security.

Did you use the recommendation link from your my.avast.com account when you downloaded the free version for your friends ???

Would this be a direct download link... The reason I ask is that during my cleaning I am sometimes asked for a recommendation for an AV .. Yup you can guess what I recommend.  I would rather not send them to CNET as I may end up having to remove toolbars where they pressed the wrong download button.  As for the numbers I have no need of that as I am quite happy paying for AIS, so they can be donated to any worthy cause

This is not an Answer but relating to the same question...
How can I get  the recommendation credit when I install it on friends PC from a USB stick. I always have this USB with me and have converted 10s of friends from AVG to AVAST?

You could always create a shortcut to your referral link on the USB. Use it at the customers home to download avast! Free.
As far as I know, there isn't any installation file that will give you credit.

Dear Avast team, I purchased Avast Internet Security for 1 PC for one year on 6 Sep 14 Order ref: 15437611242.  I was not able to open security number to place on the porgram.  I could download the porgram but not open it as it would stick after a  few minutes.  I have tried EVERYTHING, closing down the computer, downloading again but it still will not opne.  Please help me or give me money back.  I have never encountered such a probem in all my life time as this.   HELP!  I cannot telephone you as I live in Guatemala and it costs a bomb to phone!  Jeff Mills

One question: will the currently used 3Y license regenerate new date at the end if I have way more valid recommendations than 21?  :)
