"We did offer an upgrade price when it was released, but if you did not take advantage of those sales, you would have to pay full price. Make sure you are staying subscribed to our newsletters. We send all sorts of discounts each week."
That is the answer I got when asking for an upgrade price.. so since "I missed their special flash sale" that I should have jumped onto like vultures on a corpse in the highlands of Tibet.. I get no upgrade pathway.. They actually believe this is a workable marketing ploy ?!? I'm amazed. Treat your existing customers like crap and lick the newbies' butth*les clean, I guess that is how some people see business.. I'm afraid this is not a good idea.
