Get Norton AntiVirus 2013 3-user edition free after rebate

Want bulletproof security that’s backed by human tech support? Skip the freeware tools and grab this top-rated, commercial-grade anti-virus utility.

Arguably the only thing worse than a sick Cheapskate (which I am) is a sick PC. That’s why it’s important to run reliable anti-virus software, as the last thing you want is an infection.

There are plenty of good free utilities that will get the job done, but to my thinking, why not get the commercial-grade stuff if you can?

For a limited time, Newegg has Norton AntiVirus 2013 3-user edition for free. That’s after redeeming a $45 mail-in rebate (PDF), which comes in the form of prepaid debit card.

Also available: Norton 360 Premier 2013 3-user for $9.99 after a $55 mail-in rebate. That’s arguably the better deal, as it offers a more comprehensive suite of tools, but for purposes of this post I’ll focus on the freebie.

Symantec’s security products are still overcoming their reputation for being slow, buggy beasts, but professional and user reviews alike indicate that Norton AntiVirus creates minimal impact on system performance.

Because it includes a three-user license, you can install it on three PCs. However, take note that Norton AntiVirus auto-renews after one year (though you can cancel that option anytime you want), so check back with me in November, 2013, and we’ll see about finding another deal.

As I said before, I know there are plenty of freeware tools that can keep a PC secure, but Norton AntiVirus has the advantage of being backed by live-human phone support. (Most of the freebie alternatives offer online support only, if that.) Thus, I recommend this for less tech-savvy users and anyone who just wants non-invasive security without a lot of hassle.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m crawling back into bed. Unfortunately, there’s no anti-virus software for humans.
