30 Day Upgrade?

Question

hello all! :)

I recently (August 12, 2008) purchased EMC 10 and was wondering if i can get the newer version at a reduced rate (i mean more of a reduced rate than $30), since there was less than a two weeks difference in the release date of the newer version, and EMC 10, which, as i stated before, was purchased by me on August 12, 2008. anyone think it may be possible to get it for free? And, if not free, pretty close? It just doesn't seem fair to me that i would have to pay anything even remotely CLOSE to the $69.99. I remember when i was using Nero, they would let anyone that had purchased it in the last 30 days to get the newer version free of charge. I realize this is a Roxio product, not a Nero product, but I'm sure you get my drift, right?

 

Thanks from a brand spanking new member of these boards, as well as an ex-Nero fan!

You have to contact Roxio sales on this matter, but did you pay the full price for 10 or did you get a special offer? I remember receiving offers from Roxio to get 10 at half the price during August. You have to take that into consideration as well. I don't think Nero drops the price that much at the end of a versions lifecycle.

Did you buy a commercial boxed version or a download? Remember that Roxio has (had) a 30 day money back guarantee on downloaded programs. If you downloaded and worst comes to worst, call them, explain the situation and see what they will do for you. I you already sent in a rebate form, all bets are off. Unless you are going to get the Deluxe, there is not much difference in the applications that I've tried. The Deluxe coast more but does give you the Blue Ray stuff and the ability to burn AVCHD to a standard DVD to be played back on a player that will handle AVCHD; not all do.

I remember paying, i know at least, $69...and i personally don't think it's fair to charge someone full price for a product that's new version is going to be released in two weeks, do you? Maybe I'll just go back to Nero, they WERE/ARE better than Roxio anyway and the last time they upgraded, they gave customers who had purchased the older one the new version FOR FREE as long as it was purchased within the last 30 days...the only reason i switched to roxio was that i had purchased a HD TiVo and it supposedly worked better with the TiVo...i'm probably out of luck, but i won't be purchasing the inferior Roxio products again...i'll figure out how to get Nero to work with my HD TiVo...thanks for responding...

That means you already had a rebate, as the regular price is $99. So now it's a matter of checking your mailbox regularly to see what Roxio has to offer. My experience is that they will send you an email offer every day for the first few months after release :lol: It's up to you to decide whether the offer is reasonable. I doubt that you have to pay the full price (that is: $99) as a registered user of a previous version, since when you go to their online shop you already get a $20 rebate as returning customer anyway, not to mention the email offers you will get as previously mentioned.

BTW Google for Roxio coupons will save you up to another 15% :ninja:

important note, you DON'T have to buy the Deluxe version to get the Blu Ray stuff, that is a FREE add-on (thru september 2008) for all versions. Look for the download link and download and install after you get the standard version. After September, you will have to buy the blu ray 'stuff' separately, or as part of the Deluxe package, which does have that as a 'standard' feature.

 

just a FYI

I agree with you. I have only recently bought creater 10, & then they bring out a new version, and ask you to pay such a lot. When I bought Cyberlink products they gave you an upgrade for nothing with a much bigger time lapse between purchases?
