Can I just buy a new subscription from the norton website instead of renewing?

This question has possible been asked a million times but I'm a newbie so here it goes. My subscription on my current norton is about to expire in less than a month and I've been searching around trying to see the best prices to get a new subscription since renewing is too much money and not in my budget but I've read alot of scary situation happen to people from being scammed on amazon( scammed for 120 or more bucks) and other retailers..... you can say I'm pretty paranoid. So my question is can I just purchase a new subscription from norton's website itself? if so do i need to remove the norton I currently have and install the new subscription? 

I have norton security premium with backup and planning to purchase another subscription like the one I have.

Yes you can do this. First, be sure you go into your Norton Account and turn off Automatic Renewal for your current subscription. 

Then you will want to wait until you have one or two days remaining on your old subscription. This is because the new subscription will start when you make the purchase from Norton, and you would lose any remaining time from your old subscription.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

As peterweb says, yes you can buy a new sub from Norton, BUT it's also worthwhile shopping around reputable online and shopfront retailers, as you will nearly always get a much cheaper price.

In most cases if you shop online with a reputable supplier, you will be sent a key via email that you use to activate your product.

Costco, Walmart, B.J.'s etc have great deals and around 1/3 the cost on the Norton site. If you get the same product you can just enter the activation code for the purchased new product and it will renew your product for another year or however long the purchase states.
