Internet Security 2013, Antivirus 2013 – The Competitive Upgrade Swap
Internet Security Suite 2013 and Antivirus 2013 products have been rolling out for the last several weeks, keeping publications such as CNET, PC Magazine, PC World, and PC Pro busy testing and writing reviews. It’ll be awhile before the major test organizations will be testing and publishing their test results.
Nonetheless, you may be unhappy with your Internet Security 2012 or Antivirus 2012 solution. Your laptop may have caught a virus. You may have read a review of another vendor’s product and said, “I must have that, but I’ve paid for ‘fill in the blank” Internet Security 2012 already.” Three words - free competitive upgrade.
Look at ads from your local Frys, Staples, or Office Depot, for example. You may also want to look at online ads from these stores. Below is what Frys is offering (week of September 23) after competitive upgrade forms are mailed in (watch for the deadlines!). Note that the rebates are often in the form of pre-paid debit cards.
Below are links to some Internet Security 2013 suite and Antivirus 2013 review results from CNET and PC Magazine.
