Norton amazon gift "E" mail

I received  a "E" mail asking me to sign up for a $25 gift card for AMAZON as appreciation from Norton.

Is this a scam?

I think it’s a scam.  I had a pop up appear with a similar thing.  Contacted amazon 

.co.uk who thought it was dodgy.  I disabled my amazon account for now and I’m watching things.

Since I had this pop up someone has managed to use my details to swap or get energy company changed.  Watch out and report any potential thieft to action fraud helpline found on internet and CIFAS.  I have done a full report to action fraud as it is obtaining services by deception or fraud.  So much stress caused.

Bastards.

Re: Norton amazon gift "E" mail

Are you getting the email from Norton for the renewal of your product? There have been users reporting the renewal email offering a $25 Amazon gift card as a bonus for renewing.

If this is what you are seeing, it is a legitimate Norton offer. Just be sure it is a legitimate email from Norton. Is this email from Norton legitimate?

If you got a pop up while visiting some site, then that may be a scam. Gary Corbin 1's post was about an email they received. My information above pertains to emails received from Norton.

I received an e-mail regarding an anniversary gift of $25 to Amazon.com, registered for the gift, and my Norton subscription automatically renewed on 01/14/2018. Not sure when to expect the gift.

From what I've read, you need to look at some fine print, maybe in your email from Norton or your emailed receipt, that you need to allow 60 days for the processing of the gift card.

peterweb Thanks - I just went back through the relevant e-mail messages, and none of them say anything other than “Once your subscription successfully renews, we will email you your $25 Amazon.com Gift Card* redemption instructions.” I’ll wait until 30 days after the renewal occurred, though, to see if it shows up.

I finally received my Amazon gift card code! So it was a legitimate offer after all. :-)
