I had a copy of the Nik 4 Upgrade in my cart for a few days, waiting until PhotoJoseph’s webinar on the new features today. I had applied a discount code from a DxO email for 30% off, bringing the upgrade price down to (a surprising) $41.99. When I tried to check out today, I had to log back in, and the discount code that previously gave an $18 discount now gives a $3 discount (and I can no longer find any reference to the discount code in any email).
Did somebody at DxO discover that extra-special discount they were giving and realize their mistake? I thought the price looked too good to be true. Now I’m seeing so many issue reports here, and I’m thinking I can probably hold off a bit (maybe until the inevitable holiday sale).
I got the same 30% discount via email from DxO and that takes my upgrade down to £54.99 which is actually 20.7% Rather weaselly use of the words “Up to…”
Not actually paid yet as I have no cash till the payday at the end of the month. Not had any of the reported bugs so far.
It says $99.99 instead of 149$ but that’s CDN. You can always wait for the bugs to be fixed and get a better discount at the black friday deal in 4-5 months?
I had an additional code (NIKCOLLECTION4), and it allowed me to apply that on top of the “discounted” US$59.99 upgrade. I was just reminded by a popup on the checkout page that I didn’t get the code in an email, but from the site. That code used to give 30% off of the discounted upgrade price, bringing it down to US$41.99, but it now just knocks $3 off, bringing it to US$56.99.
I don’t know where they get the “up to 30% off” number - the introductory US discount isn’t even 25% before using the code, and is about 28% after the code is applied now. Maybe it depends on the currency?
In any case, the original discount was undoubtedly a mistake, since it brought the price down by 47% from the “normal” upgrade price of US$79. I will probably hold off for Black Friday and give them some time to sort out the bugs.
Just used the code you posted above. Whacks another whopping £2.75 off taking it to £52.54
After applying the original code, at the checkout I got an ‘Optimonk’ code entered(!?!) and ended up paying £38.49 for the upgrade!
You aren’t missing anything. The upgrade is buggy as can be. Save your money.
Same here. I found the discount coupon on email but when I went ahead to purchase it, it was only $3 off. So I decided to recheck at a later time and when I did a day later, that coupon too was removed and I was left with no choice but to purchase at the upgrade price.
Sad but I hope they will throw some freebies our way atleast for this goof up and for remaining loayl to their product.
Given the number of bugs in Nik 4, I’m kicking myself for buying it. I’d suggest waiting until they’ve been fixed and take advantage of a sale at the end of the year (they always have sales).
