Please help me to see if I understand Adobe's recent upgrade offer correctly...
I currently have Design Premium Suite 5.0 for Mac.
Looking at the CS6 Preordering page, it looks like "Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium" have replaced the former "Design Premium" (i.e. they have "combined the previous Design Premium and Web Premium with a few modifications, but that appears to be the closest to what I have now). If I pre-order this upgrade today from my current Design Premium 5.0, the upgrade cost would be $749.00
However, I am also seeing an offer that if I upgrade right now (before May 6th, 2012) to Design Premium Suite 5.5 the upgrade to 5.5 would cost me $399. That page also states "BUY CS5.5 NOW AND GET CS6 AT NO ADDITIONAL COST, OFFER ENDS MAY 6TH, 2012".
My question is:
If I purchase the 5.5 Design Premium Upgrade today for $399, when CS6 is released do I get the FREE upgrade to "Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design & Web Premium"? I am unclear as to what CS6 FREE package I would be entitled to since they apparently have combined the Design and Web Suites???
Yes Choreo, you are correct. If you purchase Design Premium CS5.5 or Web Premium CS5.5 right now, you will get a free upgrade to Design&Web Premium CS6.
Its a great deal for our customers. You can hop onto it right away.
Thanks for the clarification/confirmation. I will definately take advantage of that offer!
I also have After Effects CS5 (separately), but it looks like there is not price advantage to doing the 5.5 interim upgrade on that single product (same price either way).
I went ahead and purchased the CS5.5 Upgrade today - so that is out of the way.
But am I correct that there is no such similar upgrade incentive for a single product like After Effects CS5?
Regarding After Effects "standalone" from what I can tell, my upgrade cost to CS6 would be the same as if I had never upgraded to CS5 (i.e. the upgrade price to CS 6 from CS3 and CS4 is the same as upgrading from CS5) - about $350, but if I upgraded to AECS5.5 then the jump to CS6 would be about $175, but if I upgrade "now" to AECS5.5, it would be $179 + another $175 when AECS6 comes out - is that right? $179 seems like a fair upgrade price from AECS5 to AECS6, but $350 is pretty steep for just one product - especially since 5.5 was not a full incremental jump?
