Sudden Increase in Upgrade Price

As of yesterday I had placed the Live Suite 8 Upgrade in my cart and it was listed as being $194 to upgrade to Suite 8 from Standard 8. I went back today to commit to the sale and mysteriously the price jumped up to $299. What gives?

    Same thing happened to me as well.  I submitted a support ticket to see what the deal is.  The upgrade to live 8 suite (download) was 259 full price and on sale for 194.

    Well, I bought it right away the day it was announced for the indicated price but only got half of the promised licenses. I think there are nasty bugs lurking in the system right now but, with the help of customer support, we'll all eventually sort it out together. #hope

    Mmm, in my excitement I bought the L8 to L8 Suite upgrade yesterday (27/10/12) 

    understanding I'd get free upgrade to L9 Suite. Now my account says it'll cost me E240. What gives Ableton?!!!

    I have the same story. I was super excited about the upgrade price $194 and wanted to wait until end of the month to upgrade only to find out it had changed to $299. Thats a huge increase. Now I will have to wait or skip the upgrade for now.

    Probably due to the Live 9 announcement. Buying Suite 8 today will entitle you to a free Suite 9 upgrade upon release next year.

    I'm a live user since version 5 (standard + operator, and I always upgraded (standard version).

    And now here the upgrade offer ableton made for me: 349€ to Live 9 suite.

    A new licence (upgrade to Live 9 suite included) costs 412 €, thats only 63 € more. So I think the upgrade offers are REALLY EXPENSIVE!!!

    And with all the stability problems we experience since a few years.... I will wait for Bitwig studio.

    I'm entirely with you guys on this. I was planning on buying the upgrade before the prive change. If you could let us know how support responds that would be much appreciated.

    Ableton are fibbing, When I upgraded to Suite 8 it was'nt just any random price list I was looking at, there was a clear graphic Stating " Upgrade from L8 to L8Suite and get Suite 9 Free when available." Considering I have bought Operator, Sampler, & Drum Machines as add-ons in the past, Ithought this was quite fair. Tempted to bail out when Bitwig is available...

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw this price increase from 194 to 259. I emailed support, will see what they say... right now it's putting me off upgrading.

    In the same boat here. Noticed the sudden increase in pricing. Not impressed. Emailed support. Still waiting to hear what Ableton have to say about it....

    I reckon Ableton should honor their pricing "mistake" (I know I'm biased...) After all they will soon make it up in all the other Ableton related add ons we obsessives inevitably purchase.
