    Here is a good deal where you get license for 3PCs.

    It was posted so days back in this forum here. I don't know what is the procedure as you have specified you wanted a cheap buy.:)

    If you carry out on-line banking, you may be in luck and you could obtain a free license depending on your Bank.

    I have taken up this offer for KIS with Barclays for the last couple of years; it covers 3 machines.

    amazon
    I have found that boxed versions from amazon cheaper than buying the download version from the company itself.

    If you purchase last year's version from a legitimate vendor, Kaspersky will allow you to upgrade to the current version provided your subscription is active.

    I have been able to do this with Kaspersky Internet Security as well as applications from Symantic/Norton, Bitdefender, Zone Alarm, Trend Micro, and Webroot (Spysweeper).

    My original versions were from vendors on Ebay and Amazon.
    You need to be careful when buying software online, but the vendors' rating is usually a good indication of (their) reliability and honesty as long as there is enough feedback to make the rating worthwhile.

    Not necessarily. Take the scenario many users get...
    1. Buy from someone with a "good rating"
    2. Get the activation code, product activates, you thank seller and give good feedback
    3. Days, weeks or months later, the key gets blacklisted.

    You've already gave the good rating and your rating to a "5* seller" remains there. Cannot revoke the rating at a later date. And when you gave the rating, others also saw your 5* rating and good feedback and also assumed it was a good seller. They all loose their licence when it gets blacklisted.
    Seller's feedback and rating remain good.

    In general my experience has been very good with Kaspersky licenses. Recently I bought one that was evidently for another regiion, and was refused.
    The few times I have gotten a bad license PayPal has given me a refund.
    I find that good deals on Avast are not "good."

    Regards,
    Jerry
