While everyone else is gearing up for Christmas, you can prepare your PC for the New Year on the cheap. Newegg is selling 15 months of Norton 360 Standard with auto-renewal and Microsoft Office Home and Student for just $80. This particular standalone version of Office costs $150 by itself, while Norton 360 Standard costs anywhere from $25 to $70, making this bundle an outstanding deal. Better yet, these are digital versions allowing you to download the software right away.
Norton 360 Standard features excellent protection for a single PC. Our most recent review of Norton 360 Deluxe gave it four out of five stars. Most of the essential protections in Standard and Deluxe are the same, though Standard lacks the parental controls in Deluxe. With Norton 360 Standard you also get VPN access, PC secure cloud backup, and so-called dark web monitoring.
As for Office Home and Student 2019, this is the one-time purchase version of Office as opposed to the Office 365 annual subscription. Office Home and Student includes all the key Office apps including Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. It does not offer Outlook, nor any of the extra apps such as Access for PC.
Still, for $80 to get 15 months of Norton protection and the most popular Office apps is one heck of a deal. If you missed it in the fall, don’t let it slip out of your fingers now.
