My 3 PC licence for Norton 360 2 (Version 2.5) expires in less than a month and I'm looking to get the best value renewal deal.
It seems that it's cheaper to buy the full package again rather than renew through Norton as it's discounted heavily by retailers. Any advice on that?
I'm also wondering if NIS would be a better choice as I don't use the N360 backup feature (I use Acronis instead).
Thanks in anticipation!

Welcome to Norton Community!
As you are currently using Norton 360 2.5, there are two choices ahead for you:
1. Renew the Norton 360 2.5 subscription, then update it to the latest version - Norton 360 3.0 for free of cost via the Upgrade Center.
2. Get a new Norton 360 3.0 upgrade and install it over your current version when the subscription expires.
I am not sure about the pricing for full package that you get from local stores, but if you feel that it is much cheaper when compared to the renewal, you can go ahead for it. Make sure that your CD package is not tampered when you purchase it from local stores. If you need any more clarifications regarding the prices for Subscription Renewal/Upgrade, don't hestitate to contact Symantec Customer Service. They will assist you further and provide the required information.
