Cooler Everyone may miss a deal now and then at BDJ, but luckily there's always a possibility to see new deal for the missed software later. Now I'm starting to think that deal for Acronis True Image is cursed for me, because of what has been happening with it.

First times earlier this year i was away from home and unable to take on the deal. Two weeks ago I was unable to complete the purhase for some web related reason. A day later I paid two bills before their time, as I do usually. Paid bills are not to worry, after all.

Seeing a new deal for Acronis True Image on BDJ this soon? That I did not see coming.

So, the deal is up now, but I lack neccessary funds this week. Touching my emergency reserve is not an option, as it's for real emergencies. I do not consider getting the software I really, really want being a real emergency... but I'm tempted.

I can't wait to see what can prevent me for getting the "cursed" software next time. Hopefully there will be one.

Missing a good deal on BDJ is frustrating, but because of repeating deals, it's not catastrophic.

After this outburst I can peacefully wait next time... ;)

Indeed its true.. as one of the BDJ policies says that no other promotion within six months... :(

Cooler The new version is... well, let me put it in this way: I'm looking for other options.
Reasons for that are not suitable to be expressed here.

disenchanted It bites missing some of these killer deals.

But in the case of Acronis True image, it is a fairly well known software product. So it is often
on sale at other places like Newegg or Tigerdirect.
- Sometimes roughly the same price while on sale.
- Or sometime FAR (free after rebate, with the rebate being about $25 to $40).

So in the case of Acronis TI, all might not be lost for finding some sort of a deal.

Cooler My intuition tells me ATIH offer here in near future, but it's the current version which I don't want. The last version was still bearable compromise, but the new one went over the top. At least, for me.

I have to find suitable free alternative or older version, as new one is out of the question.

Anna You can check other sites like:

giveawayoftheday.com
giveaway.glarysoft.com
buzz99.com

plus many others.

Cooler I stopped using first one because they often tend to give extra payload which can cause unwanted interference. There are few people giving links to alternate and/or better softwares, so all is not lost.

The other two I may have to check up at some point. Thanks for the links!
        Aug 18 2013 at 2:51pm
Nico Westerdale FYI the first two sites listed are the same - just branded differently, so they both have that installer problem you mentioned.

The third site links to giveaways around the web - often to us!
