McAfee selling 2012 versions of Av on Amazon for $11

I see on Amazon that McAfee is selling all the 2012 AV suites for $10-$15.  This includes the multiple license versions also.  This is a good thing, however, why is it still so much money to simply renew a subscription for an additional year on the McAfee web site?  Will you price match?

Re: McAfee selling 2012 versions of Av on Amazon for $11

Well, for one thing if you get it direct from McAfee you know you're getting the real thing. I checked the site and, yes, it says it's McAfee software and some of it is sold direct from Amazon (some comes from third party suppliers).

But after my recent experience of receiving counterfeit Microsoft software sourced through Amazon (Amazon were not to blame) I'm wary of special low-price offers like this. It may be okay, and for $11 it's probably worth buying. But there's always a chance that it may not be.

Will McAfee price match? I doubt it.

Edit : Plus - used software???  I think you'll find that most software suppliers don't like, I mean really don't like, multiple PC installations of one purchased software package. It's usually in the EULA. Don't go for one of those "used" copies, whatever you do.
