Beware of Trend Micro billing!
Trend Micro is running a 50% off special right now. So for 39.95 I can get the Titanium Maximum Security just regular purchase of clicking on buy now. But I have an account that is up for renewal on 11/30/2010 and I click on renew now and logged into my account. It lets me know that my old version is now Titanium Internet Security and to renew it now is $55.95 but if I was to just buy it on a new account or click buy it now it is $34.95.
This is an extremely bad practice on Trend Micro's part to charge more for a renewing customer! Makes me want to go to another company. So as for now I will NOT be renewing and will be looking at other competitors and think about whether or not I want to create a whole new account just so I can pay a cheaper price because Trend Micro charges more to renew!
Solved! Go to Solution.

Just off the phone with TRen and they straight up tell you to go ahead and purchase a new download at a %40 preice reduction and install it. Use your NEW serial number and just forget about your old account. Seems like a really piss poor way of doing business.
Oh, and you only have until January 4 to do this...prices go up again after that.
