/Can I still get a DL Copy of mbam premium 1yr/3PC from another retailer offering it?

Recommended Posts

I was on New Eggs website 7/23/16 and they say claimed to have the 1yr/3PC deal for 24.99 until 7/25/2016.  Is this "Downloaded Key" a new key from Malware or do they have old stock with old premium keys that will still be honored through Malware Bytes.  I know even on your site it shows the packaging that says 1yr/3pc but through the forum someone posted this is not true unless bought before Sept 1, 2015.  I am a little hesitant that New Eggs Info Is correct?

Hello and :welcome::

Thank you for your interest.

I do not work for Malwarebytes, so I cannot provide official advice about that particular offer.
We will need to wait for a staff member to weigh in.
>>It would probably help them to research it if you could please post the actual link to the item.

Until then, a few general observations:

  • Historically, Newegg has been a reliable online source for Malwarebytes products with a good return/exchange/refund policy.
  • But, yes, official sale of 1-year, "up to 3 PC" licenses stopped nearly a year ago, at least from the Malwarebytes online store.
  • However, I recently spotted a BOXED CD product with combined MBAM Premium and MBAE Premium for 1-year for up to 3 PCs at a major brick-and-mortar computer store; so it's possible that similar offers are still available.

If you decide to purchase that item from Newegg, please be sure to keep robust records of the entire transaction, just in case.

Alternatively, you may wish to take advantage of the multi-PC AND 2-year discounts for license purchases directly from the Malwarebytes online store.

Thank you,

Thanks as I was hoping a staff member would weigh in on this discussion...this is the link for new egg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832562006

If it gives a mbam key along with the invoice then I would suppose I could try to directly use the key and not get MBAM to generate another key of theirs to use and possibly only get 1 yr/1PC.  

On a different note...I also saw this deal on THEIR site with a sale for 29.99 instead of 39.99 for 3 pc/ 1 Yr.  When I go directly to the site it only shows 39.99 for 3PC/1yr but this seems to be from the same site unless it is a scam...  https://store.malwarebytes.com/342/?scope=checkout&id=mqXJnzrwB2&x-lae_vid=9268447233wx


I am pretty cautious and do a little research if there are scams and it seems no matter what you ask of any malware, antivirus what have you...there are scammers.  This one very legit and from their website or partnersite?


Care to check it out and no I am not going to test your computer to see if it will catch malware from the links ;)

Thanks Doc,

Thanks for the info.

Please be patient -- it is the weekend.  The Marketing/Sales team may not be able to respond until Monday.
I will leave it to them to check out the links you posted.

There are promotions from time to time, even at the Malwarebytes online store. But "buyer beware" especially for products that are no longer offered. If a deal sounds "too good to be true", it often is. 

Ultimately, it's up to the buyer. 
Please be aware, however, that -- if you purchase from a source other than the Malwarebytes online store -- your primary (or only) recourse will be with that seller.
The safest way to go is either with a purchase from the Malwarebytes online store or perhaps with a boxed, sealed CD from a trusted seller.

Thanks again,

Also...from new egg...no refunds...you buy...oh you buy..bye bye!  Alternatively for 5 dollars more and if the deal on MBMA site is the real deal for 29.99 3PC/1Yr then that what i will do.  I have exactly that many I need and MBAM Premium kicked this PUP called MPC (More Powerful Cleaners) butt but not before MPC kicked mine and then started to infect my machine pretty quick...all because I was impatient and didnt look for the right sites to unlock my sony xperia from Sonys support sites directions...go figure!

I've asked Sales to weigh in but it's possible this is from some other partner of New Eggs that we may not have direct knowledge of. As you've mentioned, digital download software has no return from NewEgg.

This software sales link has been in effect since 2014 based on the reviews from 2014

  • Return Policies
  • Return for refund within: non-refundable
  • Return for replacement within: non-replaceable

Based on that policy even if it is legit I'd still be a bit leery of purchasing any software with no possible return.


If this was Amazon I'd say it's not a valid sale for sure. However as daledoc1 has said, NewEgg has a pretty good reputation for all their sales so would seem odd for them to list it if they knew it was not valid.None the less I've asked Sales for advice on this.
