BullGuard Internet Security 2013 Free 6 Months Serial License Key

Bullguard Internet Security 2013 is priced at $60 for 1 year license key on up to 3 PCs. On the positive side I noted that BullGuard Internet Security 2013 can be tried free for 60 days, while other security software usually only offer 30 days free trial. If you think that the 60 days trial is still not enough, then here is a promotion offer to get a free copy of BullGuard Internet Security 2013 that protect you for 6 months (180 days). The 6 months trial offer includes only 1 GB Online Backup space instead of 5 GB.

Updated [March 25, 2013]:  BullGuard has changed their mind and is only offering 3 months of BullGuard Internet Security 2013 for free!
