One Thing You Can Buy on Boxing Day

So a while ago, I spoke about how Anti-Virus software is needed, but the pricing trickery is ridiculous.

On Boxing Day here in Ottawa, pricing games were driven home like a nail from a pneumatic nail gun.

I have noticed that the Boxing Day sales regularly have Anti-Virus software on sale, so I decided I would wait and see what might happen with the sales.

Sure enough, our Amigos at Future Shop delivered and had Norton 360 on sale for $29.99, for three machines and for a 15-month subscription (remember to renew for one device for 12 months was going to cost $79.99), so my patience seems to have paid off. I checked the Norton site and they had a Boxing Day sale for the same product (3 licenses Norton 360) for $69.99 (wow).

I guess we can add Anti-Virus software that you can purchase at the Boxing Day madhouse.

  1. Sorry, it baffles me why would anyone spend money on antivirus software when excellent freeware options are available. Avast and AVG, for example, have versions that are free for personal use.

      I understand your distress and I have friends who use those exact systems and are very happy with them (and the Microsoft free stuff as well). I am not exactly sure why I continue to pay for it, but it has done good things for me on occasion (and also slowed my machines down to no end as well).
