    Kaspersky Renewal

    Kaspersky Renewal 8th Feb 18 at 12:22 PM
    I have just renewed my Kaspersky Internet Security.

    As a returning Barclays customer I was given a promotional price of £4.99p however just as I was about to leave the site I was offered a further 10% making the total payable of £4.49p.

    Which I consider excellent value for money for 12 months protection plus this is for 3 devices and for some unknown reason last year through Barclays it was only 2 devices.

    Although not free as I had last year it is still excellent value for money.

    Yes Barclays have dropped it this is an incentive to Barclays customers by Kaspersky to keep with them.

    What do you mean by BB renewal?

    I think it should be reported and praised how Kaspersky are giving the incentives for people to keep with them despite the silly actions by barclays

    You have been faffing around with this for 2 MONTHS and completely ignored all the other answers in your other threads on the subject.


    Im not wasting my time on this one


    EVERY paid AV solution will offer you these "unbelievable discounts" eventually, after forst trying to rinse you with £50 + renewal, then dropping it a bit and so on until they are about to lose you and then BAM - here, have it for £4.


    But of course we all know that AV is free and you have now wasted your £4

    The current Which? Magazine places Bitdefender as the highest rated A/V bundle, it's £30/year for a 5 machine package.

    They didn't rate Malwarebytes or Windows own A/V too highly, although they are popular with many folk.

    As stated in earlier threads, Kaspersky has been given the elbow by the Government for some of their use, although they don't suggest home users ditch it:

    PS. Here's the free Kaspersky if anybody is wondering...
    https://usa.kaspersky.com/downloads/thank-you/free-antivirus-download
    It contains the same anti-virus components as Kaspersky Internet Security.
    Info here https://support.kaspersky.com/us/12961

    (And for the OPs information, or anybody else would like the extra "bloat" of KIS, you can get it for £4 -3 devices for a year-...

    My mind is blown, I can't believe people are paying for AV software let alone from a MS site.

    Then justify it by saying that free alternatives (which are better anyway) aren't the full programs.

    As mentioned previously there is Bitdender, avast, sophos. Throw in programs such as CCleaner and youre good to go.

    Stop wasting money.

    £3.99

    Why would anyone sell Kaspersky for less than they were charged unless there is something odd with it?
