    $399 upgrade offer is expiring

    Just when I thought Avid had sensibly listened to its customers, it seems the $399 upgrade for those with lapsed annual upgrades/support plans is going to expire at the end of this month.

    Its a promotional offer for those that didnt upgrade and stayed on MC 7 with their SS and PF.  In order to allow them to upgrade to 8.8 and SS and PF, we offered this for Q1.

    Its not a surprise....

    When I called AVID they said I could not upgrade to newer MC8 as I had a MC7 that was perpetual licensed and I never bought any yearly tech support features.

    True, but they had a special offer in Q1 and Q2 to bring your mc7 back under support for 399.

    That promo has ended but is still available through Videguys.com until 7.28 (limited amount available). For that you get MC 8.8 plus a year of support, updates and upgrades. It also gets you the 749USD Symphony option for free. After those 12 months, you can either keep your license up to date for 299 a year, (so that's 299 for 12 more months of support, updates and upgrades), or you can let it expire and it would leave you with a perpetual license at the version of that moment (say, 9.2 for example) forever. 

    399 is a great deal, and while Avid doesn't offer it anymore, if you hurry, Videoguys does for now. They have a good reputation and a good relationship with Avid. 

    It's even only 385 at Videguys and they currently have a 5% coupon discount on top of that. http://www.videoguys.com/blog/upgrade-reinstate-avid-media-composer-get-symphony-option-free/.

    Note that this offer requires you activate the reinstatement before 7.31.
