"Special Offer - ends 6/22"
« on: June 19, 2015, 06:07:20 PM »
Turned pc on this AM and received a pop-up offer for 611 days of "Avast Premier" and 1 year of "Avast SecureLine VPN" for a total price of $39.99.  Clicked on the offer, and, lo and behold, price was $59.99.  Nothing was said about special price being applied at checkout or any place else.  If this isn't a rip-off, I'd be curious how that can be so.

If it isn't a "ripoff", at 59.99,it's still a heck of a steal/deal!

It's possible that marketing and whoever does the pop-ups aren't in synch.
