    Price Hike for Media Composer?

    When I go to the store, and click "Renew/Upgrade Now", and then "Renew Now" and "Proceed to Checkout", the price is $400, rather than the $300 I would expect (I'm pretty sure that's what it was last year). It's $295 on VideoGuys, which matches what I expected.  Did the price of the Media Composer update with Symphony go up by 33% in one year, or is there something unclear or misleading on the purchase site?  I already own the Symphony option, and the Avid website knows this already.  Since, you know, I bought it from that very site.

    Any clarification would help. I've seen nothing about a price hike, and yet I don't see any way to purchase the renewal in any different manner than I have been trying to do.

     

    Media Composer version: usually newest release, or 1 behind. Nvidia GTX 1070Ti Windows 10, Core i7 8700K processor, ASRock GA 1151 Z370 Motherboard... [view my complete system specs]

    I spend most of my time between New York and Los Angeles.  In Nebraska.

    the renewal is still $299 for the support with upgrades and an added $99 for Symphony option for those that dont have it yet. If you have Symphony already, then you just upgrade the MC part for $299.  

    Do you have a URL you could send me or better yet the My Avid and the SID.

    I believe Avid si selling a bundle of the MC Support and $99 Symphony licence together.

    We are selling them ala cat. $285 for the support renewal and then you can add Symphony for $99 to your cart.
