2-for-1 QuarkXPress 8 until Jan 31st

If you buy a new copy of QuarkXPress 8 before January 31, 2010, Quark will give you a second copy free. The best price I found was $628 at Checkout Software.

The process works like this: you buy QuarkXPress 8 from any Quark Authorized Reseller (or from Quark’s website), and complete an online redemption process. Within 14 days you will receive an email with a serial number and validation code for your free license. Then you can install, activate and go!

Of course, you could get clever and start using your second copy right away — Quark has a 60-day free trial that would work on the second computer, and then you’d just permanently activate its license when you got your validation code.

QuarkXPress 8 is platform independent, so your two licenses could be for Mac OS X, Windows, or both.

Quark’s website has further details and the redemption form.
