Is it okay to daisy-chain a UPS and AVR and have it connect to a PC?

I heard this method from a local computer store that you can plug-in a UPS to an electrical outlet and plug-in an AVR to the UPS and then plugging-in the PC to the AVR for additional safety and that they've safely used this configuration on all their computers for years. I'm a bit dubious of this claim so I'm asking if this is true and safe?

Which particular units would be used? The only purpose I can see for this is to make do with a cheap UPS that has no AVR function and a cheap AVR without UPS capacity. I can only think it would be better to use a good UPS/AVR unit.
