Do you have to activate the software or subscribe to it of any kind?
The product must be activated prior to rebate redemption. Activation will require a valid credit card however your subscription may be cancelled at
anytime. Total Defense will verify that the product has been activated.
A one-year subscription is included. You need to activate it using a CC, either online [totaldefense.com]
or by installing the software. They will do a $1 authorization and sign you up to automatically renew every year. You can cancel the auto-renew "service" immediately after activation without impacting the rebate ("Cancel Automatic Renewal Service" [totaldefense.com]
on your account page). Don't try to cancel your subscription (which is not the same as auto-renewal); there's no easy way to do it, it might cause rebate problems, and it's just going to expire anyway.
