actually it cost me $196.40 AUD long face

P.s. I’m seeing the $85.50 price when I go to the Shopping Cart page, not the drop down, just to be clear.  That’s always the case for programmatic discounts like this.  Although it does sound like some number of folks got ‘missed’.  Some of those prolly own it through other sources, and may not have an entry in their product history for it, but for others I bet the DB check just isn’t right for some reason.

I’m seeing $171 as well and am in the PC club and own Carrara 8.0 PRO.
Everybody’s probably asleep in Daz land.

Be nice to get the price sorted though.

guess they might have run out of serial number for now -
if so you will have to wait until they come in today .

Well guess I missed out on the beta….damn it.

But no way can pay for $171, or $85. 
That’s freaking steep price for a .5 upgrade.
Stuck with 8…. does genesis work in 8? :S

ahh here is the reason for the price mixup ,

from the other thread

Greetings,
Yeah, I know this sounds bad, but just don’t buy anything in the first 30 minutes after DAZ Midnight, unless you’re REALLY certain the error is on your side.  Because there’s always an error.  New items 404 for the first 5-15 minutes, prices fluctuate as the database updates and the cached pages get pushed out to their CDN, different simultaneous sales conflict, and sometimes someone honestly mistyped the sale formula.

It’s a mess for the first half hour most of the time.  It’s not even DAZ’s fault.  Well, if they were less aggressive with sales it might be easier, but I doubt most folks would be happy at that, either. smile

— Morgan

never knew that, that explains a few theories I have had, it’s all related to daz time being different to the rest of time smile

I just put it in my cart and when going to payout I am seeing it at $85 US and saying that PC is saving me $57 US which is interesting since my PC sub expired months ago..  Have to resub my PC so can get Carrara 8.5 Pro at the lower price..

Will have to wait by the looks and will miss out on the promo price of Carrara since not going to have the cash to get it. :(

85 IS the lowest price. If you can afford it get it now.

It’s too high for me, even with those discounts.

I too thought that 8.5 would be a free upgrade at least to 8 pro owners.  :(

I have 8 Pro, I add 8.5 to the card and it comes up as 171 USD. My 8 Pro was a free upgrade from 7 as I bought 7 about a week before the release of 8. However, I assume this should still qualify??

I would say however that even 85.50 for what is nothing more, for me anyway, than a bug fix release is actually pretty shocking. I won’t be using most of the new features so It’s pretty harsh.

Also, I just noticed my C7 to C8 Pro upgrade serial number has been made inactive too. What’s that about? It would certainly explain the higher price.

No way.  Plus, no discount shows up for me, though I have C6 Pro.  I just get the 285 dollar price.

I’d love to upgrade to you, Carrara, but I’d have to starve for months to do so. :(

As near as I can tell, those of us getting the $171 price are people who upgraded to 8.0 Pro from 7.0 (or earlier)—$171 is the PC 40% off the $285 price. The C8.0 Pro Upgrade is apparently not triggering the 50% cut.

The only constant is change—and it’s a variable.

Actually, my Carrara 6 Pro s/n has disappeared.  AGAIN.  I just checked for laughs, on my account page, and I’m not seeing it.  It disappeared last time after DAZ updated their site last year…

This is getting frustrating, fast.

Yep, just looked in the cart then and that’s what I’m getting as well.

If the upgrade version doesn’t trigger discount then it’s just another example of a company punishing loyal customers. So I hope this is just a glitch that will be remedied.
