    Change the timezone on your laptop to Pacific Time and you'll get additional time. It added hours to my countdown timer.
    Why not just set the date back a couple days and really give yourself a lot of extra time?

    If that works, sure. Timezone change worked for me.

    Well...would look at that. I manually set my date to 26 July, click refresh, and wallah!

    So, according to your theory, the free upgrade will NEVER expire! Thank you for showing us that!

    Now, as it so happens to be, I live about 1 hour directly north of Microsoft in a little town called Stanwood, WA. So, I'm pretty sure that when my date and time are set correctly and their countdown timer says 8 hours and 15 minutes, the free upgrade is going to expire in 8 hours and 15 minutes, even if I set my date to January 1, 1901.

    I set mine to the 30th and got this:

    So I don't think it matters what your local time is set to. It's going to go by Redmond time.

    If you want to criticize, fine. But for some the upgrade was no longer available when it was 12am 30th July at their end. This advice was for such people to try because it added time to my timer. Sorry you can't appreciate that.

    And that is pure myth. For one thing, in Microsoft's time zone (and I am 1 hour due north of Microsoft) their own countdown in their own timezone expires at 3 am on Saturday, 30 July.

    I don't have any computers with the Get Windows X app left, so I can't test it, but I'm wondering if that stops working based on local time?
    In which case changing the local clock would enable upgrade for 2hours 30 mins for those of us where it's already 30th July.

    You would be able to upgrade but not activate I suspect. At least not until you buy a key.
