Hi,

I have notified that on Sep 16 at 1:13 PM


Welcome to Macrium Reflect Version 6!


We are currently offering an Upgrade Discount of 25% to 50% off (depending on the edition of v5 owned).


As long as I have the Macrium Reflect v5 Professional to v6 Home Edition. So, I have requested upgrade to Macrium Reflect v5 Professional to v6 Home Edition.

However, I still found that the price of Upgrade - Macrium Reflect v5 Professional to v6 Home Edition is $34.95

There is no saving or discount of 50%, nor 25%.


Also, I've seen those coupon codes at RetailMeNot
http://www.retailmenot.com/view/macrium.com
There are coupons for 50% Off Macrium Reflect Standard v5 and 50% Off Macrium Reflect Professional v5. One says Last used 3 hours ago, the other, Last used 4 days ago. But all these coupons link to Macrium and they are no longer selling v5!

However, only 10% Off All Purchases Of V6, And Upgrades From V5 which worked while upgrading from Macrium Reflect V5 Professional Edition to Macrium Reflect V6 Home Edition, but I only Saved $3.00 on Macrium Reflect V6 Home Edition, and not Saved $7.00 or $10.00 on Macrium Reflect V6 Home Edition as Someone commented about that.

$31.45
$34.95

This discount even doesn't worth my time spent googling for coupon codes.

It all depends on how you interpret the wording. You DID get 50% of the full price of Reflect V6 ($69.95) by paying $34.95. You were NOT getting 50% off the upgrade price, but 50% of the full price when you upgrade. I understand that this might be worded in a way that is misleading but it is not inaccurate.

As to the $3 saved by the 10% discount you were able to get, not being worth your time. I guess that depends on how much your time is worth and how long it took you to find the 10% discount. I typed "Macrium Reflect discount" into Google and the first result was the retail-me-not 10% discount code. So that was about 30 seconds. Saving $3 for 30 seconds of work equates to $360 per hour - which I would be HAPPY to work for. So, in my case it would certainly HAVE been worth my time.

Thanks a lot,
Yes, what I meant with that discount of $3.00 is not worth as much time as I have been googling for coupon codes which can save more than 10% of upgrade from V5 to V6.

Could you please reply to me?

1- Could I be finding other coupon codes saving more that 10%?

2- the price of upgrade from V5 to V6 will be always $34.95, or it can be decreased or increased in the next months.

I do not work for Macrium so I cannot give you any info about what, if any, discounts may be available in the future.

Other than the 10% discount which is almost always available, Macrium has sales from time to time. But those are typically for the current version and NOT for an upgrade. Upgrades are already discounted heavily.

If you cannot afford to upgrade, you can continue using V5 as long as you like. While there are some new features in V6, I am not sure any of them would be a must have for you. Obviously you are the only one that can answer that.

I do have V6, but I do not think I am using any of the new features. It is usually nice to always have the latest version of a good product but, depending on your needs, it may not be a necessity.

Which features of V6 do you think are important for your needs?

Thanks a lot,

For Drac 144, I don't know what other important features V6 does have?

I have just submitted my ticket, however, once submitted, I have received an automated email telling that my email was received, and this is a part of it.
*Please ignore below if you have purchased a Macrium Reflect product key

*Please note that the free edition of Macrium Reflect is not a supported product. While we endeavor to answer all questions we cannot guarantee to respond to all emails unless you are a licensed user of Macrium Reflect.

My question is how Macrium Support team would be able to know if I have a Macrium Reflect product key or not as long as I have typed in another email address other than my email address associated with my Macrium Reflect product key purchased while filling in the submitting of ticket form. I only have provided my same name with which I have purchased my Macrium Reflect v5 Professional Edition product key.

Moreover,
The price of the brand-new Macrium Reflect v6 Home Edition is US$ 69.95( single Licence)

However, it is said in the announcement received to my e-mail:
We are currently offering an Upgrade Discount of 25% to 50% off (depending on the edition of v5 owned).
As a result, if I was correct, according to 25% to 50% off the upgrade discount price, and the entire price of the brand-new Macrium Reflect v6 Home Edition(US$ 69.95( single Licence),
upgrade price should be '0.25' * '69.95', which equals '17.4875', or even be more likely '0.50' * '69.95', which equals '34.975', and not $34.95 as said there.

The full price of the product software is US$ 69.95.

However, they said that they offer an upgrade discount of 25% to 50% off the full price of the product software(US$ 69.95.)

'We are currently offering an Upgrade Discount of 25% to 50% off (depending on the edition of v5 owned).'


As a result,
upgrade price should be '0.25' * '69.95', which equals '$17.4875', or even be more likely '0.50' * '69.95', which equals '$34.975'.

However, at that Macrium website, the price of upgarde after taking an Upgrade Discount of 25% to 50% off the full price of the product software($US69.95) is as follows:
$34.95

'$17.4875' is the upgrade discount of 25%
'$34.975' is the upgrade discount of 50%

Simply, my question is: if I had purchased that product with a discount of 25% off original price(US$ 69.95.), I would purchase that product with US$52.4625('US$ 69.95' - '$34.975' ). However, if I had purchased that product with a discount of 50% off the original price(US$ 69.95.), I would purchase that product with 34.975('US$ 69.95' - 'US$ 34.975' ).

I am expecting that a discount of 25% would save more than 50%.
Could you please explain that for me?

Then, 50% is more helpful for me than 25%, but not for the product's owner, as I have used to been expecting that.

Any upgrade discounts available to you can be found by entering your email here:

http://www.macrium.com/upgrade.aspx

Discounts are made on the full retail price of v6. There are no further discounts available.

This is a support forum for help with problems using Macrium Reflect. This is not a place for discussing pricing.

This topic is now closed.
