I just received an email with a notification that Adobe will be changing their upgrade policy starting from January 1st, 2013.
From that date on only people with the latest version of the product will qualify for the much lower upgrade prices, when purchasing a new version of an Adobe product.
If we take the Adobe Creative Suite 6 as an example, then from January 1st only customers who own CS5 or CS5.5 products are eligible for upgrade pricing. Customers with CS3 and CS4 versions will have to pay the full price if they want to upgrade.
Therefore – if you have any money left in your budget and have older versions of Adobe products that you are thinking about upgrading now is the time.
