Norton 360 Single User Physical Copy $0 after Cashback ($50 Cashback) at JBHifi (NSW Only?)

70

Norton is useless etc etc etc.
For those who want to try it though (this is the 360 antivirus vs the internet security posted last week), apparently the cashback offer is now $50 making it free. This was sighted in all the Sydney city stores, should be the same case at other NSW JB's and possibly national?

    It is not free, it will give you a slow PC.

      You get what you pay for. Which isn't much :(

      Try Avast! Free Edition. You'll get a lot more for your money. /s

      A simple, intuitive, easy to use anti virus program that uses very little system resources, doesn't randomly crash, and doesn't slow down your PC when it detects something going awry.

    Norton is ment to be paying users to get this software…

    Much better TOTALLY FREE options are available …. Microsoft Security Essentials is a great start…

    Cheaper ($1 less) at DSE, click and collect. http://dicksmith.com.au/product/CD0SC12/norton-360-v6-3-user...

    (It's only $1, but still, this is ozbargain :) )

    The symantec site still says $40 cash back though? http://au.norton.com/now/en/AU_SITE/pu/images/Promotions/201...

      Catalog says $50.

      I last used Norton 360 about 3 years ago. It was good up to v3.0 I think, then it got really slow. I spoke to an Indian CSR online, told him I was not renewing (said it was too expensive, going to seek a competing product) and he gave me a free 12 month code. I was happy so decided to keep it. But that only lasted a few weeks before I ditched it and picked up Avast! instead. I didn't want to use it even when it was free.

      I wonder if it's faster now? It seems everything I use that is fast at first gets slower as it's updated.

      After Avast I tried Bitdefender. Bought a year and only used a month. It was bad. A buggy mess.

      Now I'm using ESET which seems ok but same false positives are bothering me.

      No suite I've used is perfect for my needs or problem free. They all have their pros and cons. I swore off Norton years ago, but am open to returning if the product has improved. I'm running out of security suites to switch to now…

        +1 for Avast! I've never had a problem with them. I also only had 1 problem with AVG and Avast! Keep in mind that AVG can't be used to scan your computer for viruses if you start it in safe mode… just a little drawback if you can't start your computer in normal mode.

      The DSE one is a downloadable product. I noticed that the rebate page talks about retail box. Do you still get the rebate if you just buy the key to download?

      •  

        Good point - nice pickup. Given the uncertainty, and the possible difference in rebate, best to disregard the dse option then.

      you'll get a confirmation after activating the product and then filling out the online redemption form.

    We have around 50 or so left at werribee.

    HN is doing the same.

    Norton may as well be a virus, not anti-virus.

    this program charges you in bytes instead

    I had to laugh, in JB today, there was a HUGE sign saying it was $0 after cashback. Everyone walked straight past.

      Should ask for a discount.

    •  

      If it's too good to be true, it probably is! Hehehehe

  •  

    Harvey Norman has it advertised for this price too

  •  

    We will buy it if it is $30 before $50 cash back :p

  •  

    I was in DSE the other day and someone was given it for free with his toshiba laptop and he refused it. I agree with him totally, however I probably would have ebayed it myself.

  •  

    JB would have bought them for less than $50, so if they wanted to they could claim all the cashbacks themselves.

  •  

    For anyone who doesn't automatically hate Norton and wants to make an easy $5 (+ maybe another $1.75 with ing paywave):

    NIS is available for $35 at officeworks and can claim $40 back.

    Would post as deal but sick of hearing all the Norton hate.
