Best Way to Purchase NS Subscription Online

My trail month's subscription for Norton Security expires in a few days and I do intend to purchase a year's subscription.

Can anyone advise me what is the best and most economic way to do this online?

Re: Best Way to Purchase NS Subscription Online

Depends on whether you want NS-5 devices or NS with Backup

NS is on sale at the Norton Store for $59.95. Other large online sellers have been selling both NS and NSwBU for less for a boxed delivery and only slightly less for the download. It changes from day to day. If you only want NS for 1 PC some online sellers are selling that for cheap.

People buying from Amazon have been having problems activating their keys,some have had to contact Norton Support to activate and it can take a while. Some buying from Amazon have success using their Amazon Keys and downloading from the Norton Site. (Update -- Just noticed current price for NS is now same as Norton Store so no advantage)

Have no idea what prices will do as we approach Black Friday or Black Monday (for online software)

Big advantage in buying it from the Norton Store is the 60-Day money back guarantee. And I suspect if you want to add days to NS from an existing license it may be easier if you buy from Norton Store.

Downside of buying from Norton Store is auto-renewal policy, but that you can cancel, at least that what it says. I bought from Norton Store and there was a box addressing auto-renewal that was pre-checked. I simply un-checkeed it.

NS-5

As I am not in the USA (or other large country) it will have to be an online purchase.  What is the cost if I use the Norton automatic renewal for my trial subscription?

It varies from country to country so perhaps you should try clicking on the link at the very top right corner of this page. Mine says Norton.com and it takes one to the Norton products and support page for your own country or region (or should). But ours currently does not seem to provide a link to actual purchase and renewal prices like it used to but shows how to initiate the procedure on your installed product.

A recent post from someone in the UK showed that the renewal price on the Norton page was higher than the purchase price and this is something that they seem to do frequently ...... don't ask us why!

Since yours is a trial product strictly you will be buying a subscription.

A last suggestion is to contact the Norton OnLine Support Team by the CHAT route that uses the computer keyboard and not your phone:

To contact customer support Click on this link https://www.norton.com/chat and work on from there. It should link you to the center for your region.

A couple of things to note: Some of the US sites like Amazon state that they can only ship to US addresses and the Norton 60 day satisfaction warranty applies not just to purchasing direct from Norton itself but also from any authorized supplier -- so always be careful who you buy from.

Please let us know how you get on ....
