Free Software Deals on Black Friday 2011


For the past few weeks I’ve been getting a popup on my computer letting me know that my Norton Security software is about to expire. If you’re like me, you won’t even consider paying full price for the software. Thankfully, Black Friday 2011 is almost here! I’ve been checking around for the best free software deals and would like to share a few free offers with you.


While most of these deals appear to only be available at the store on Friday and Saturday, it may be worth your time to get there early to scoop up some of these great offers. These Black Friday software deals at Staples are only available from 6AM to noon:

  • Norton Anti Virus 2012 – Highly rated! Free after Easy Rebate and in store discount (this is what I’ll be getting for myself!).
  • Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2012 – Free after Easy Rebate and in-store discount.
  • Trend Micro Anti Virus – Free after Easy Rebate and in-store discount.
  • Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 – Free after Easy Rebate and in-store discount.
  • McAfee Total Protection – Free after Easy Rebate and in-store discount.

These are really good deals and the Easy Rebate is done online and is very easy to redeem. And another good thing about these deals is that it doesn’t involve having to “upgrade” from last year’s software or a competitor’s software.
Also, while you are at Staples, you might want to consider getting some HP Photo Paper (50 sheets). It’s free after the in store discount and Easy Rebate.

Office Depot

Some of these items seem to already be available online at Most of the others will be available online on Thanksgiving day starting at 7AM, and online as well as in the store on Black Friday starting at 6AM. The difference between these deals and the ones at Staples is that you will need to fill out and send in for the rebates. Some of the items also have several rebate forms to send in making these deals a little more of a hassle, but still worth it if you want any of this software for free. Your rebate will usually come in the form of a pre-paid VISA card. Be sure to print out the rebate form while at their site, or that the cashier gives you the correct amount of receipts if you pick up something in-store.

  • McAfee Internet Security 2012 – Free after rebate
  • Movie Plus x5 – Free after rebate
  • Print Artist Platinum – Free after rebate
  • Photo Impact Pro 13 – Free after rebate
  • Web Plus 5X – Free after rebate
  • Digital TV For PC 2 – Free after rebate
  • System Mechanic Professional – Free after rebate
  • Quick Book Online – Free after rebate

While at Office Depot, you can also pick up HP Advanced Photo Paper (100 sheets) and HP Premium High-Gloss Photo Paper (25 sheets), which are totally free after the rebate.

Enjoy these deals and all the free software you pick up in a few days on Black Friday!
