    Pricing error

    Soopytwist

      So, the full license is £54.71 but the so called "upgrade" from Premiere Elements 9 is £63.49?!?!? How the  hell do you justify that? Surely this in an error.

          Are you looking in the same place (same store) for both prices?

           

          It is VERY common for non-Adobe stores, such as Amazon, to have lower prices

            That's jus the way discounting works. So Adobe Full licence is currently 30% off

            But is still more expensive than Amazon

              It is very important for you to mention where you are seeing these prices that you are quoting.

               

              For the moment, I will assume Adobe UK or thereabouts.

               

              Premiere Elements (any version) is a standalone software. If you have Premiere Elements 9 and you want to go to Premiere Elements 12, you are not upgrading as in taking version 9 existing files and modifying them to end with version 12. You are just going from one standalone software to another. Upgrading in this instance is a price break that you can get from Adobe going from one standalone version to another if you can prove ownership of a prior version.

               

              On top of that, as Adobe gets closer to October of a given year and the release of yet another new version of Premiere Elements (they have been coming on a yearly basis), even the "upgraded" pricing can drop for special promotional offers. And, purchases not from Adobe can have price variations as per the marketing of that non Adobe company. Special pricing for the latest version for people with prior version is not usually seen when the purchase is from a private vendor. Years ago, these purchases not from Adobe might include a coupon to send in to Adobe for a rebate. Have not seen that in years in US.

               

              I am not sure where this talk is coming from about a Full Adobe License. You purchase the product, you activate it with your purchased serial number, and you have the product license. I have never heard of 1/2 or 1/4 license, anything less the 1 license per product. I would like to see documentation that indicates otherwise.

               

              Please review and consider.

               

              Thanks.

                It says the upgrade is 30% off too:

                IMG code isn't working. Never mind, I see your forum doesn't support IMG codes.

                  That's just bad web programming by Adobe (note that we are all just users here, not Adobe themselves). If you click the 30% dialog it only applies to the Full product.

                  I'd still buy it from Amazon and save a tenner.

                    Thanks for the reply.

                     

                    As you have presented, your "30% Off" is 30% of 78.15 and the final price of 54.71.

                     

                    A just in case note....it is a good idea to look at the free 30 day tryout of Premiere Elements 12 from Adobe before purchase to assure that it is compatible with your computer environment and meets your video editing expectations. You can always purchase where you get the best price and then insert that purchased serial number in the tryout so that do not have to install the program again. Lots of pros and cons to that.

                     

                    And, when and if you purchase Premiere Elements 12, typically there is a 30 day money back that comes with it. Please verify that before purchase.

                     

                    As has been said, we are not Adobe here. Just a user to user Premiere Elements community.

                     

                    Best wishes on your video editor decision.
