Up up and away.

Just got my Norton automatic renewal notice. A 21% rise in cost. Really?

Maybe Norton should check out the inflation rate here in the UK. It's currently around 3%.

Oh well, I've always wondered what another antivirus system would look like (always used Norton). I guess I'm going to find out now.

Hello Johnny Rubber

Please disable automatic renewal and remove your credit card information so that they can't bill you. We always recommend every one to shop around for the best prices. You can almost always find cheaper prices in stores and online in legal sites. This would apply to the Norton Security line of products.

If you want to stick with the old, discontinued line of products, then you will have to deal with the Norton Store since no one else has it to sell.

Thanks.

Hi Floplot.

So basically, when Norton wish to discontinue a product they simply put a ridiculous price hike on it to discourage renewals? Sounds a bit unethical.

Why not just announce its termination and use the notification to promote newer and cheaper alternatives?

Anyway, thank for your information and advice.

Hi, Johnny. What you're paying for with automatic renewal, is the convenience of not having to shop around for a better price.

What many of us do is shop around reputable retailers, and you will find much better prices, with just a little effort.

It's a buyers market !

Hello Johnny

Even if you wanted to buy Norton Security, the newest products, you would end up paying more in the Norton Store than in other locations like other stores and safe online  sites. It's a marketing ploy. They can't charge less than their partnered sites sell them. The partnered sites can go as low as they want, but still make a profit. It has nothing to do with the fact that the product you were interested is higher. The Norton Store however is the only place where you can renew the product and use it right away.

Thanks.
