It also includes a nice ad for Malwarebytes VPN. :)

Um, cheaper than Avast VPN even when compared to the 36% discount offered on avast.com.  Competition is healthy ;)

Are we comparing apples to apples between the two VPN's; special features (like Smart VPN) and Number of Server Locations for example, when comparing price?

People frequently look at the bottom line, e.g. the cost not the features and many won't really state what product feature set is.

Even this page mentions nothing about Smart VPN, https://www.avast.com/en-gb/secureline-vpn#pc so you would have to go digging to find this.

For the most part I agree David, however personally I always research a product compared to other similar products when making a final purchase decision. For me, more Server Location options is crucial in choosing a VPN.  :)

More locations also help if you travel so you can hopefully select a location near your travel destination.
