staples, best buy, radioshack, etc...they are in a price competition war with each other regarding the advertised prices of identical products. where they try and make up for razor thin margins is with inflated profit margin accessories, scam "setup and install" services, and extended warranties.

Well, to be fair, it IS an Ultra setup. Those can't be cheap.

Obviously the reading comprehension level is at an all time low here. Norton 360 offers personal information security, an app for ios. Please do some research before you trash a company or app before you know what it does.

Looks like a dag-blasted scam to me...
-On Norton's web site the listed feature for 360 everywhere security per listed on the add is priced at $39.99
-a screen protector and application = $10-30 / intallation = (?)
-and set up = (?)

So just in products we looking at around $70 not including tax
Where they get you (the nickle and dime scam) is hiden in set up fee which should be free as it is everywhere else, and who knows how much they charge to apply the screen protector.

I'm really sorry you have to work there and hope you find honest employment soon.
Oh believe me the stuff I hear is ridicules and I try to be the saving grace lol. And yeah the monster cable issue I agree with but that's a monster issue not a best buy issue we get set pricing from then.

I would pay the $99 alone for the "Protective screen protector" ...I have many screen protectors but none have "Protective" ability

The Norton 360 price of $39.99 is one license, yes?

Well, this Staples offer says you get 3 licenses for it, so technically that's a $120 value for Norton alone!

It says you get 3 licenses, and it says you get N360E.
But it doesn't say you get 3 licenses of N360E.

And who needs 3 licenses of N360E anyway? One license lets you install it on up to 5 devices.
