My subscription for Norton Internet Security expired yesterday. Normally I’d log in and buy a subscription for another year directly from Symantec. I say normally because this year I am skint and I really need to watch my pennies.So instead i did something a little different. Instead of paying £39.99 online to Symantec I tootled round to my nearest computer store – in my case PC World (www.pcworld.co.uk) – and bought a three license copy of Norton Internet Security for £24.99 (UPDATE: £23 as of September 19th 2011). Hmm, but did you have to reinstall the software I hear you ask. No. I merely clicked on the Renew Subscription button (or whatever it was actually called) and when prompted for a license code i entered the license code from my brand spanking new £24.99 copy. The code was accepted and I got 12 months of antivirus action only I saved £15.01 in the process. Good eh?! I reckon the journey there and back must have cost me around £2. Go on, save yerself some cash.
Be sure to check out the savings first. If you can’t get a cheap copy at your local software shop/store then renewing online is probably the best option for you.
