    if you feel you are eligible for a different pricing as you find offered in your account you chould contact customer support. I am pretty sure that is just an oversight and easily worked out. I got my charter member pricing and apparantly a good number of others as well so it seems it is - of course - still valid.

    I have the core pricing in my account, so it should be there for other core members!

    Be sure to login and check your account for a special upgrade button. As far as I'm aware you would have had to upgrade every time since prepurchasing LW 10/ LW Core and not missing any upgrades. I believe you would have also had to upgrade within a specified time frame each time to retain your discounted price which I think was within a couple months after each paid release.

    Yeah there is a whole bunch of requirements that it's hard to keep up with honestly. Basically if you paid $295 for the last upgrade because you bought it right around the time it was released, your price will most likely be $295 in your account page.

    I don't think it was "F-O-R-E-V-E-R" either. Just for the five following upgrades.

    Yes I think I remember something about that as well. So that will likely make LW 2020 the last one at the discounted price for those of us who were eligible.

    From the link above:

    ‘If you have upgraded to 2015 or if you take advantage of this current promo to get current with 2015 then you will receive $295 for all future upgrades of LightWave. That is a nice savings to you Charter and Post-Charter supporters right now and in the future and is a way for us to say thank you in a big way.’

    The extra discount was for what they called 'Hardcore' members. So, people who bought into the Core beta testing and things. Since then, if you haven't missed an update, you get the extra discount. (For five upgrades, which means this is the final one).

    Nice time to put the "squeeze" on users during the virus pandemic. Make your decision in a month or lose your discounted upgrade? How many people that are out-of-work with no real end in sight yet and questionable economies?

    Think here in the UK it might be different? The UK Government seem to be paying out money to support the self-employed and even large companies. Most of my friends have been told to stay at home, on 80% pay with their company paying the extra 20% to top them up to full pay. They don't have to work, and are at home with nothing to do, so releasing a new LightWave for some people in the UK, is good timing.

    With the added benefit of not having to commute to work every day, I'm saving more money than normal too... but I know not everyone is this lucky.
