I just came across this special sales price for Avast One
https://www.avast.com/en-us/lp-aff-pcworld-a1?utm_medium=affiliate&utm_source=commissionjunction&utm_campaign=8200811&utm_content=13637464&couponfield=yes&cjevent=42fc385afe324c3dc24f73f1e9038397c7f3772ab1164746a#pc
I don't know how long it will be available but even the 30 device product is cheaper here than any other
sales price I've found for 5 devices.
Remember, this is in effect only for the first year. If you don't want to be charged the full price
next year, cancel the auto renewal.
(I don't sell the product and don't get commissions.)

I find it hard to see anyOne (excuse the terrible pun) having a need for 30 device license.

It would sort of require a family of 8, each with four devices, Windows, Android, Apple or Ios

That link offers an excellent price on both the 5 device and 30 device license which I'm sure
you would use for an extended family. :)

It isn't the price that I question, but 30 devices, that would need to be a fairly large extended family.  Not everyone is using all 4 types of OS - Windows, Android, Apple or Ios - so that would mean even more in the extended family. 

If these licenses have to be managed through one account the IT guy for that extended family has some work on  ;)
I mean looking at the forums for instances those who have purchased a license through Google Play have to deal with Google Play (and probably the Apple App store) for renewal etc.  I don't know how they would get around that.

I simply can't see the need for a 30 device license.

For me the price has nothing to do with it, just who needs cover for 30 devices.  Yes it is a very good deal for the 5 devices.

Not to mention I've been happy with Avast Free for over 18 years and many of the additional paid features I just don't feel I need.

AI Generated Outer Space Images

https://youtu.be/cjLwMUhWHDI
Music - One Time by Jeremy Black
I used https://beta.dreamstudio.ai to create the images.
If you're interested in any of the images, I'm happy to share them.
The only investment I have in the images is a little time so they are freely available.
