because now its better to buy new than renew.
Perhaps they have already rethought the situation and it is currently exactly as they want it in order to produce the maximum amount of revenue from those who use their product.

Stupid marketing Norton.
Swinging users thinking whether or not to renew are more likely to drop it.

I did just that over 2 years ago when I found much better protection free of charge...

When it comes time to renew unless I renew earlier, If I can't get my Subscription renewal for less then what I paid for the retail price, I'm going to dump Norton. One question remains, what does Nortons Competitor sell a subscription renewal fee for ? Near identical to what Norton Subscription renewal Free ? Fee alternatives will be put into consideration but they usually don't have everything in one package, if you want some of the additions you usually have to buy their pro version, which usually includes a subscription fee, which brings you back to square one. Subscriptions can be effective, that is if the yearly renewal is less then buying a brand new version.

It is logical to buy a $200 program and the subscription fee a year is $55, buying a brand new version would set you back $150 not including taxes. Buying a program for $200 and the yearly renewal fee is $140-$160 doesn't add up logically.

Where did you buy it for $50?

Do you have Norton 360 Standard or Premier and how many PCs is it for?

If I remain content with Norton as a product I'll just reinstall a boxed version x3 license if cheaper.
Maybe Norton rely on the lazy factor. In my case they'll wear the added supply chain costs.

I was in Office Depot last week and found NIS2011 with Norton Utilities 3 user pack for $9.95 after rebates. Should be more coming as 2012 versions will be out in a few months.

I'm late to the party but whatever :P Don't ever drop your money on Norton/McAfee. They're not worth cracking either! Stick with any decent free solution like Avast or MSE and with a bit of prudence as well there is no way you'll get infected. A good hosts file helps too.
