Hi,

Sorry that I was not a regular at this time last year :)
so this question goes to the long-timers and staff :D

Does vb have a sale for christmas or new-year coming up?

I am thinking of getting a second license and was wondering if I should wait for some special discount. I know that most of software/hosting do open up a special discounts on christmas/new-year.

wondering if VB had same plans :)

:ninja:

There has never been a discount. The prices have always been $160 USD for the owned option and $85 for the leased option.

that was quick :D

is it worth buying second-hand ?

I would never buy one second hand, it's to easy to get scammed and takes much longer to do then just buying from the company directly.

that's what I thought at first; but, no ... you will get the discount as soon as you purchase your 3rd license (or 4th license-don't remember)

If you have 2 or more licences the cost goes down to $148 upon purchase of your 3rd licence :)

i.e., for 3 licences, you pay $160 + $160 + $148 :)

I did not realize that! I had thought I read on vB.com somewhere about it being an 'all or nothing' type thing. I'm getting ready for licenses #4 & #5 so this is very good news to hear. :cool:

There might be a timelimit to get the discount. Better check at vb.com.

If you buy all three licenses at the same time, you'll receive the reduced price for each of them.

The only limit, as Colin posted above, is that you get however many licences at the time of purchase at that reduced price...

i.e. 4 licences @ $148 each :)

Otherwise, you can buy 2 licences at $160 either together or seperate, and then buy 2 at $148 either together or seperate from that account :)

The discount is applied in two different ways...

1) When you buy multiple licenses of 3 or 5 at the same time, the discount is applied to every license in the purchase.

2) When you are standing customer then the purchases are cumalative. When you purchase your third license, the license price is discounted. But only if you initiate the purchase in your Member's Area. Finally for this discount to work, they have to be the same type of licenses. If you own 2 leased licenses and purchase an owned license there is no discount and vice versa.

Wayne - A scenario:

You already own 2 owned licences, and you purchase a 3rd Leased licence...

Before the time to upgrade to an Owned licence expires, you decide to upgrade it - Do you get the discounted $12 from the upgrade price or have to pay the full upgrade price?:)

Not if you sneak an extra $10 to KierDarby.php himself :-D

Chris M

Then you pay $3 more than just buying it and being done with it :p

$5 for Wayne + $10 for Kier, and then what about the other staff? ;) Where's my $50 charge? :p

Check Web Hosting Talk. You can usually find used licenses there. Buy an owned license though. No sense in buying a used leased license.
