DealBITS Winners: Disc Cover 3

Send Article to a Friend

Congratulations to Peter Frary at virginmedia.com, Marshall Clow at idio.com, Manny Lefebvre at sasktel.net, Dennis Helsel at practicalstats.com, and the reticent, email-only Chuck (McDonald, I believe) at gmail.com, whose entries were chosen randomly in the last DealBITS drawing and who each received a copy of Disc Cover 3.0, worth $34.95. We hope you entered the drawing if you wanted a copy, since entrants received a 30-percent-off discount on Disc Cover 3. Thanks to the 497 people who entered this DealBITS drawing, and we hope you’ll continue to participate in the future!
