This is 100% legal, yet a lot of people never know about it.

M recced under the Computer Software thread Smart Diary Suite [Link: ]; I'm giving this its own thread because it's so easy to miss the fact that you CAN get any version for free.

There are actually four versions, all of which can be found on the download page [Link: ] at the site. I'm also linking you to the chart that compares all four editions and there features here: [Link:

The four editions are the Lite, the Home, the Medical, and the Free edition. You can download ANY of these four, fully-featured, and use them for 30 days. The Free edition is, as in the name, always free. After the 30 days, prices are:
Lite: $19.95
Home: $39.95
Medical: $69.95

I wanted the medical. But there was no way I was going to pay $70. And then I noticed the special offers page: [Link:

You know how you can use any version you want, all the features, for 30 days? Download the one you ultimately want to own. At any point you want--I did it later the same day I downloaded, after checking the program out--do the following, as the site says:

"Get a copy of any edition of SDS completely free - simply post a positive review (short or long) about Smart Diary Suite on any public forum or blog and we will give you a free copy. It's best if you provide a link to our site ( in your post, but we understand that not all forums will allow posting links. The post should be relevant to the forum or discussion, so that it's not considered as spam by the forum's moderators or blog owners. Please note: Facebook and Twitter posts are not qualified for this."

I would assume you have to EMAIL them with a link to this post *dry* and make SURE you wait until they respond before you buy. Or you don't get the freebie.

You can also, as it says on the Special Offers page, get 50% off any version (but why wouldn't you just get it free?) by doing the following:

"Get a copy of any edition of SDS at half price (50% off) - simply write us an e-mail with your testimonial telling us (and others) how Smart Diary Suite helps you keep track of your life and we will give you 50% off your purchase. We do reserve the right to use your testimonial in our promotional materials, so please tell us if we can use your name or if you'd prefer to stay anonymous.

* Please send us a testimonial before you purchase SDS to be eligible for a discount. Thank you. The testimonials will appear on the Testimonials page."

The Testimonial Page can be found here: [Link:

I BELIEVE their email--I did this forever ago--is: But check the site and you'll find it.

REMEMBER TO DO ALL OF THIS BEFORE YOU GO TO BUY, OR YOU WON'T GET ANY DISCOUNT OF ANY KIND. You'll be sent a code, or a link to download, depending on what you're doing.

On the Special Offers page, there are many other offers of discounts or ways to get it free, but honestly, these two are the best.

Be sure to check out the forum, if you do: there are things to download, such as plugins, that you'll find extremely useful, and everyone there is lovely.

"Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for.
