Should I trust Kinguin

I want to get Windows 10 but I don't want to blow my budget. I've heard about sites like Kinguin and I was wondering if I should just pick up a key for like $30. I don't want to get into anything sketchy or anything. I know for like a buck you can get their buyer protection but should I trust them to actually give me a new key if there's a problem? Please help.

Sale of software and keys from that site often violates the ToS or are resold licenses purchased via fraudulent credit card. Recommending, suggesting, advising, encouraging, hinting, or in any way implying these keys as a solution or option is not allowed on this site.

Short answer, No. They are illegitimate keys and your lucky if microsoft won't deactivate the license right away.

That's what I expected, all of the sites that sell cheap keys seem pretty sketchy. I'd rather not mess around with key resellers or piracy and just pay the $100 bucks to be sure I had no problems.

No, its basically a piratebay that costs money.

Way off on that one lol

Pirate Bay is illegitimate software trading while the Grey market software sites are usually valid license keys being sold... Some may be originally sourced in a nefarious way, and some transactions may be against the original purchase agreements, but they are not selling cracked games...

Only ever buy an OS from a licensed retailer... So the big stores basically

Yea, after like 19 people telling me I should, I decided just to spend the extra money for a legit copy of Windows.

I don't want to get on one day and have it say Windows got deactivated or anything.
