FREE (after rebate) McAfee Total Protection 2013 & Kaspersky Internet Security for Windows....

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

What do you think about the following two FREE Internet Security suites for 1 user - 1 PC (Windows) in Staples stores.

(The promotion is valid through December 1, 2012.)
 
 
***********************************
regular price: $59.99
sale: $10.99
total price (before rebate): $49
tax: $4.53
 
 
McAfee
Total Protection 2013
 
Protect 1 PC 30-day Money-back Guarantee
 
...
Supported Email Programs
POP3 - windows Mail, ... Outlook, ...
...
 
***********************************
 
regular price: $59.99
tax: $5.55
 
Kaspersky Internet Security
Premium PC Protection
1 PC, 1 year
 
**********************************
 
So, after rebates (Visa prepaid card), one pays only tax, i.e. $4.53 or $5.55!
 
 
By the way, 2013 is not printed on the box containing the Kaspersky software. - What does it mean?
 
 
How good are these two (and other similar deals) on Internet Security software?
Aren't McAfee and/or Kaspersky dumping earlier versions of their Internet Security software
released in early-mid 2012? What's the catch here?
 

 

 

P.S.

Yesterday, I bought both of them, but I can return them unopened within 14 days

for a full refund.

I never understood how software are still being sold in boxes but out of those 2 Kaspersky is definitely better than McAfee

Hi,

 

Thanx for your response. So, I'll keep the  Kaspersky Internet Security

(Premium PC Protection for 1 PC, 1 year).
After the $59.99 rebate (Visa prepaid card), the final cost is equal to tax = $5.55!

I've been using Kaspersky KIS for several years now and will continue using it. I never had any problem with it.

eset is still my choice (though I haven't used Antivirus for years), but Kaspersky is a close second.

Honestly for consumer level protection, Microsoft Security Essentials is very nice. I've been using it for several years now and it's free.

typical consumers are idiots though, MSE is good for people that know what they are doing in the computer, I wouldn't recommend it to an average person at all

Kind of agree here. I don't use an antivirus at all and people look at me like I'm insane when they bring me their computer to be fixed. 

 

I fix computers with MSE every day. Not so much with an eset or Kaspersky protected computer. I've literally never had an eset PC come in with a virus, and only 1 Kaspersky ever. 

 

Norton, McAfee, MSE. Those are the big 3 I see a lot. They're all garbage.

 

EDIT: I get people that tell me 'Well something's better than nothing though.' and I disagree. It gives people a false sense of security and they get screwed.

I disagree completely that MSE is garbage. But what do I know, I only do this for a living.

As do I. So I suppose we're at a fork in the road. Agree to disagree...?
