Appalled by Retail packaging for OneCare RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I purchased OneCare from Amazon for $20 (free shipping) and was appalled by the enormous plastic container that it came in.

    All I wanted to do renew my product. I should have been able to purchase a code number from Microsoft, typed it in and be done. To save $30, I have to dispose of this large hard plastic container not to mention the fuel and effort to ship this package to my home.

    Microsoft! There’s a better way. Please stop this wasteful practice!

  • I don't disagree with you, but it's a moot point since OneCare won't be sold after some time in the 2nd half of 2009.

    The packaging looks nice, but ti is excessive, especially when you are simply purchasing it for the renewal code to save some money over the retail pricing charged via the online renewal process.
