Harvey Norman Cyber Security Software Promotion 

We read advertising on the radio show today about a $50 internet security software voucher offer they are currently offering. This is being run by Harvey Norman, but I thought I would include some details of the promotion here.

The voucher is enough to pay for either of the above software solutions, and you will gain coverage for one device. There are conditions, like always, and one of the key conditions is the voucher is allocated on a ‘one per household’ basis. I am also told the voucher needs to be used in-store. If you are interested ask for further details in store. But this might be a good way for you to get internet security software onto your PC or Phone.
