I note that X-Rite is having a rebate sale in USA for the i1Publish Upgrade A and B of $150 off until 30/09/2011.
Rebate form is here
for terms and conditions. The cheapest I saw Upgrade A at on a quick search was about $420 from Bay Press Services
, this brings the price down to $270, which is getting close to nearly half RRP price which may convince a few people I've been reading on this forum to upgrade.
The form says:
Terms and Conditions: THIS CERTIFICATE MUST ACCOMPANY REQUEST. Copies of product UPC panel do not qualify, original MUST be supplied. Cannot be combined with any other offer. Failure to comply with the terms of this offer will void your request. Void where prohibited. Allow 6-8 weeks for delivery of check. Valid only for products purchased and
shipped in the USA and Canada.
Not only would I have to purchase in the USA, from Europe (which might involve import duty, since we're talking about a box with a licence), it is also uncleaar if this will be accepted on top of the upgrade A/B pricing.
