They require you to do the following to obtain the giveaway or discount.
  • Click a button to get a free or discounted software
  • Redirect you to another page where you must enter an email and or make an account.
  • Then you must click "Place Order" or similar button and you are redirected to a "Checkout" or "Download" link
  • You may also be required to enter billing details for discounted software (I'm skeptical of discounted software on some of these type of sites)
  • Once you get to this point you are either redirected to a licenses & Download link page or a zip file download.Most often not containing a license but the URL of the original giveaway.
  • Please reference the screenshots below
