Best Anti-virus 2015 at the Best Price

Why pay full price when you can save sometimes more than 50% when buying the best quality antivirus for you pc, lap top, tablet and even smartphone? Read this article through, we’ve found the place you´re you can buy software at the best savings price for your  anti-virus or other software you might need.

For almost 9 years I’ve been using licensed BitDefender antivirus without one complaint whatsoever, until this current year (2014) when I decided to uninstall before the end period of the license, because of:

1-      Slowness or blockage on re-initiating the pc or laptop
2-      Slowness or total blockage when BitDefender was updating which happened every hour.
3-      Trojans getting through without BitDefender noticing them

When buying a license for an antivirus you look forward a product that will make your life easier, protecting your work online as well as your data, right?

Not always!

Almost at the end of the year, I decided to uninstall BitDefender after having such a problem with trojans that made me format the main pc once again. Mind you, this happened 3 times this year. 
I´ve searched, researched, tried it for a month and finally bought a new license for TrendMicro Internet Security.

How does Trend Micro Internet Security work?

1-      Silently
2-      The updates are done without you noticing
3-    The clean ups do not interfere or slow the pc,they are done when the software decides it is needed.

I finally have my pc working normally as last year, running faster as well as opening the pages and restarting much faster than before.

I really can´t pinpoint what went wrong with 2014 BitDefender as  I’m not an expert in this area, but all I know is from a user’s perspective that after almost 8 years this 2014 version (on my 9th year) was not a good experience whatsoever.

This article is not intended for anyone to go out running to buy Trend Micro Internet Security just because I am happy with it, the same that is not telling you that BiDefender is not a good choice. No, not at all!

This article serves the purpose to inform MoneyTrends4U readers about my own experience, but with a bonus, yes a bonus!

I’ve found a great site to buy software with great discounts, uses Paypal and is not only fast but totally reliable. 

So what’s the bonus?

1-  You don´t have to pay full price for your antivirus or any other software as long as you buy it from BuyCheapSoftware.  

    2-  If you are a wholesaler this is a great place to buy your stock from.

    3-  If you are looking for a work from home business you can open your online store and sale software because they sale in bulk at much cheaper prices, the more you buy the cheaper it gets.

So, want the best anti-virus 2015 at the best price? - Why pay full price when you can save sometimes more than 50% when buying the best quality software for you pc, lap top, tablet and even smartphone?

Dos and Don´ts When Shopping on Amazon

Shopping online, is supposedly to save time and money, and this said and done, it should mean, all efforts have been taken into consideration so no ugly surprises will come by a few short months after having made an online purchase, right? - Not always! So let´s  take a look at some dos and don’ts when shopping on Amazon.

Dos and Don´ts When Shopping on Amazon

Experience is the best knowledge, and I like to share mine so whoever takes the time to follow and read MoneyTrends4U will not get trapped by some non-professionals that invade and blemish the efficiency of others on some purchases made online, more precisely when shopping on Amazon.

I’ve written posts about how good it is to shop on Amazon, and I continue to vouch for them -  they are efficient, professional and practice good prices. Shopping on Amazon can actually be a good shopping experience, while saving time as well as money. Even if one makes a mistake and doesn’t like the article and has to return it, or even yet, when something goes wrong with it months after the purchase.  

I have bought from Amazon in Spain, Italy, Germany and the United Kingdom and can only remember good buys and excellent customer service relations even when some things went wrong - purchase after purchase, until about a month ago with an article bought from Amazon in Germany.

Last May I bought a weed cutter from Amazon in Germany and at the beginning of this month the machine stopped working, it simply would not start. Contacted Amazon and I was sent the usual instructions to print a return tag and take it to the post office. No problem, so far, all the usual procedures for returns on Amazon for repairs, replacement or reimbursement that I have been used to.

Following the instructions sent to me, I had the machine  unassembled, discarded the fuel, packed it in the original box, printed the return tag from the Amazon site and placed it on the package, took it to the post office and to my surprise the attendant did not want to accept the package alleging the return postage was not free.

Contacted Amazon and this is what the seller (Brast24) answered:

Dos and Don´ts When Shopping on Amazon

Hello Mrs. Dias,
I am sorry but I did not know, that you live in Portugal.
Due to the fact that we do not have a cost free shipping mark for Portugal, we can also offer you to send you the needed spare parts which also might be an easier way for you as well.
Can you please tell us what Kind of Problem you have with the article? If possible you can also send us a Picture of the defect. Therefore please use email adress: [E-Mail-Adresse entfernt]
As an alternative you can check in a local repair shop how much the costs would be if you let the item repair there. We might refund you the costs.
Again, we are very sorry for the circumstances.
We appreciate your understanding and send you best regards from Munich.

Dos and Don´ts When Shopping on Amazon

So, I bought something that was shipped to Portugal and the seller does not know where the item was shipped to? – It says so on the receipt, it says so on the tag they asked me to print for the return!

Are they sleeping at work? Do they read what they do? I guess not!

I have been trying to get what I am entitled to, which is the return of the machine back to Germany without paying for the shipping, the repair, replacement or refund , and up to this date it has been a loss of my time and patience.

Between many emails each one with different offers this was what I received today:

Dear Mrs. Dias,
please be aware that we offer a warranty of 2 years not a guarantee. There is a difference.
In accommodation we offered you to repair the item/ Exchange the parts which are defect but would kindly ask you to ship the item back to us on your costs.
We already explained that it was Amazons fault that the item was sold to Portugal. Therefore I suggest you to contact Amazon.
We appreciate your understanding.
Best regards from Munich.

I don´t yet know what the outcome of this will be as it seems that  in the midst of all the communication and miscommunication in the form of a ping pong game, someone is trying out my patience thinking I might give up complaining, but they have a surprise coming!

We all have our rights and they must be protected as well as honored.

Dos and Don´ts
 When Shopping on Amazon

  Where I live my rights are these,
  where you live your rights might be  different,
  but no matter the location, everyone has their rights
  and a seller must follow, not only the  rules for
  a good and professional comercial practice
  as well as  the applicable local  law.

But what is the problem with Amazon?

The problem is: 

- When buying from Amazon there is a huge difference from items “fulfilled by Amazon” and Amazon Marketplace, and so there is a loophole on the regulations.

When the purchase is fulfilled by Amazon there is no problem whatsoever, if something goes wrong the company will fulfill all your rights; when a purchase is made through a seller on Amazon Marketplace it´s like a gamble and we won´t know if the seller will honor the warranty everyone is legally entitled. Mind you, this is the first time a Markeplace seller (Brast24) behaves this way so in no means I am implying they all act unprofessional as this one (Brast24) has. 

So what is my advice regarding the dos and don´ts when shopping on Amazon?

-          Do buy  on Amazon making the best selections from the country that best suits your needs.
-          Do buy from Amazon ahead of time and taking advantage of all the best sales to save money.
-          Don´t buy from the Amazon Marketplace unless you know the seller.
-          Don´t ever buy from Brast24 on  Amazon Marketplace as they are not professional.
