Norton Internet Security 2010 (3 User License) @ Costco £17.23 - Kaspersky 2010 also available for £16!

Found 18th Nov 2009
Purchased Norton Internet Security 2010 from Costco Haydock yesterday for £17.27 which is quite a bit cheaper than half price. They also had Kaspersky 2010 available for £16. I assume the offer would cover all Costco's as they all seem to price items the same (I visit Liverpool and Haydock branches regualarly).

I know this isn't exactely widely available as it is Costco so sorry to those who aren't Costco members.

I also know there is lots of debate about how good Norton is and the availability of free alternatives on the internet (although I believe they aren't as comprehensive), but for those people who want to purchase the software this seems to be a very good deal.

I have the receipt but as a new member to the forum I seem to remember seeing that you can't post pictures until you have reached 10 posts? If there is a way of doing it I'm happy to post a picture of the receipt later today after work.

It was yeah, as was the Norton

Even taking into account this is a Costco offer, I'm suprised to find this is cold considering there is another thread for the same product at over £23 which is voted as hot!

Ditto, don't understand why this is cold....

I guess the deal is cold as it is Norton deal. Should have been hot if it was primarily a Kaspersky deal, a much superior software.
By the way, was it Kasperesky Internet Security- 3 user, rarther than Kaspersky antivirus?

I don't know what to do!! Hot for Kaspersky (quite simply the best) and freezing for Norton (quite simply the worst). What to do? Can I vote hot AND cold?

I don't understand this mentality of voting cold merely becuase they dislike a product. On that basis I could go through every post that contained a product I didn't like on the main page and vote cold regardless of value.

Surely a Hot or Cold vote should be based on the price of the product for sale in comparison to the rest of the market. In other words value which is what I thought this site was all about.

I think it's more to do with the fact that for norton you are effectively paying for something that is less than worthless. It's not a matter of taste as with say some films on here, rather you would simply be better off without anything and it is just a waste of money - many things go cold here because they are just useless.

I am sure most people here has heard that you can get Kaspersky security 3 user with a Barclays bank account, but it is certainly worth looking into to save you £16. You can open a Barclays online saver with £1 and claim the free antivirus. It also updates every year and they pay you interest on the £1!

If that was true, and it isn't, then that still doesn't explain why it is much hotter on another thread!

Of course if you had read the contents of that other thread, or had the slightest experience of the current and last versions of Norton, then you would have known the answer. :-(

I can't find any thread where it is particuarly hot at all. Though I have just read the most recent one which seems to be many people who have used norton in the past saying it is awful, where you suggest that the new one is much better. Very much the same as this thread in fact. The thing is that bad reputations are a particuarly tricky thing to get rid of, and norton has got itself an awful one. It doen't really matter what it's like now, many people on here that remember how bad it was will vote cold because of the past. I didn't vote either way I was just pointing out why Norton often gets a lot of cold voters.

You will find that those who have tried it confirm it is much better, those that haven't come up with the same old rot :-(

The value of Norton is zero - so voted cold because better products can be bought cheaper - would you vote hot for an overpriced TV that's got £10 off?

No, but as that's not the case here, a better analogy would be: I would if it was cheaper than the going rate, up with the top performing TVs, and especially if I was getting three for the price of one!

Was really hoping this was right as my Barclays Kaspersky is just about to run out but I have just checked Barclays website ( barclays.co.uk/onl…et/ ) and it says - It will provide you with 12 months' protection on up to three PCs in your home.

Has anyone had any experience of this - have you taken out Barclays Kaspersky and did it renew at the end of the 12 months for free, please?

Just found another thread that had more information

hotukdeals.com/ite…-to

Just tried to log on to the online banking (not used it since getting the Kaspersky) and it looks like it will allow you to renew - in my case the 2009 version. Some discussion on the above thread about the key working with 2010.

Total rubbish, in your opinion Norton's value is zero, for the last past 2 versions it has been significantly improved and received various awards from the likes of Which? and Computer Active. Again, if I applied the same logic, I could vote cold for over 90% of the deals on here simply because they have zero value to me.

If you have no interest in the product, then don't just vote cold becuase you don't like it. It prevents those people who may do so from potentially spotting a good deal and saving some money on a product they have decided to buy.

Which is precisely why I don't take a blind bit of notice of the heat ratings on ANY item.
