Why I cancelled auto renewal

Why is My automatic renewal notice sent to me as:  February 23, 2017. Your subscription for one year of protection is GBP 79.99, when I can buy it locally for between 20 to 30 GBP. for 5 machines?. I have cancelled this and will buy from a shop.

Marketing is the reason for the price difference. Any seller has the right to sell at a price they can make a profit. The price Norton sets for the automatic renewal is the price you pay for the convenience of not having to remember expiry dates for your protection, or having to shop around for better pricing. 

Many here do what you have decided to do. Cancel auto renewal, and shop around at reputable retailers for a better price.

I paid £29.99 two months ago  when renewing my Norton subscription for 5 devices, this offer is still on at the moment. So not sure why they are asking you for £79.99.

I assumed the original poster was British when he quoted the price in GBP, I also live in GB which is where I could renew for £29.99..

Re: Why I cancelled auto renewal

I should mention although my subscription is fully up to date for another year (I bought it two months before it run out),  I have just pretended to renew my subscription and when I got to the final part of the process the cost was showing as £29.99 for 5 devices for one year exactly what I paid two months ago. This is a promotion cost and is 50% off the normal cost. So really strange why Norton was asking you to pay £79.99, although I do appreciate you said earlier you cut and pasted from the Norton renewal notice.

Hello

If it was from an email, it might be from a partner site and he had different prices.

Thanks.
