You offer $99 upgrade to F 25 but when I click through and try to buy it the price comes back at $149. Your company seem to have lots of trouble standing good on your advertised special price. I missed the last offer because of your poor communication. Are you playing a bait and switch or is this just stupidity on your part. I have been a customer since 1991 and that makes no difference to you fools!!!! MakeMusic or whatever you call yourselves is about to lose a VERY loyal customer. i have been an advocate and provided first level telephone support locally in South Africa for years. In exchange, I was given NFR copies from MakeMusic of upgrades up until 2014. I was willing to pay for the F25 u/g. When I complained about the pricing withdrawal on F25 on the last offer I was rudely told forget it!!!! I was too late!!!!. Now this!!! Thanks for bugger all!!!! Time to look at Sibelius. I shall be including all of the above in a review and on Finale sites. It used to be a wonderful company to deal with. I guess your 'loyalty' only works one way!

I too have been a long standing customer since Windows XP and OS9 days. I just upgraded to v25 today from v2014.5. There is a special promo code that "should" have been sent to all long users. If you didn't receive the code, I would contact MakeMusic. Once you have selected the upgrade there is a point where you can enter the code and the price drops from $149 to $99. I just did it a few minutes ago so I can confirm. I believe the code is good for the next few days. I am in the U.S., however, so perhaps this promo code is not available in your area (which seems silly to me on MakeMusic's part if that is indeed true). Best of luck.

I suggest you email them again. Remember, today is a holiday in the states, so I wouldn't expect a reply for a day or so.

 

And, just my opinion, but a misunderstanding over $50 is a pretty lame reason to threaten going to another program.

Sometimes, Finale upgrades work better if a browser other than Chrome is used. If there's a link in the email, paste it into another browser. If there's a discount code, make sure that is entered.

 

Already being a 25 user, I would not have received the email in question  

 

Posting on this board is not how to contact MM directly. Use the Submit a request link at the top of the page.

Hi Bill,

 

Thank you for posting; I realize that this has been a frustrating process for you, so I wanted to make sure -- were you able to enter the promotional code at checkout, or did you run into errors there as well? If you did run into some obstacles entering the promo code during the checkout process, please let us know and I can open a support ticket for you to get things sorted.

 

Have a great rest of your week!

The MakeMusic store posted a Facebook link today with the July discount code. They made a mistake, however. If you remove the space from FIREWORKS 17, it works: FIREWORKS17.  The end date is cut off so I do not know when it expires.

 

I wonder how many posts we will get on this?

 

(I own multiple Finale licenses so I was able to test this a few minutes ago.)

Hi Mike H., 

 

I'd like to be sure the post announcing the promotion has all the information people need to complete the upgrade. (I'm MakeMusic's social media manager.) Could you email a screenshot of the post you saw to my alias email: finalesocial@makemusic.com? I'd like to take a closer look, as the post includes the end date when I view it on my screen on mobile and desktop.

 

Thank you!

Hi Ryan,

 

Screen shot sent. I see that the code has now been corrected. Still can't see the expiration date.

Thank you Mike!

 

Looks like Facebook is also presenting the sponsored post in their "right hand column" -- I'll remove that option so that no one sees the offer without knowing when it expires.
