  • Did I miss the discount?

    Hey all,

    I heard that VBulletin did offer a huge discount to license owners for the 4.0 upgrade. Is this true?

    I have had VBulletin for a number of years and because of the new policies I have a couple weeks now to purchase 4.0. I was wondering if there was a discount available and if I missed it and why? I have checked my e-mail and can find nothing from the last 4 months from VBulletin regarding this. There is a chance my spam protection could blocked it or something but regardless I cannot find it.

    # Is there still a discount available for license holders who wish to upgrade to 4.0?

    # Is there any way to get an extension on my expiration date

    # - If I do not upgrade can I continue using 3.8 and the V Bulletin forums or am I just dismissed...???

    # - Does the previous license hold any value at all for anything or has it been deemed null and void?


    Thank you so much for your help. Despite the fact that I am really upset about my license being nulled I have to say that the 4.0 version is the absolute best version I could imagine! I just think it is amazing and I am tempted to start pawning my belongings in order to pay for it... It is THAT GOOD!!! lol

    You're some month to late for the discount, sorry. If your license is expired you need to pay the full price now even if you only wish to continue to use 3.8

      the promotion was emailed to you as well as it was placed in your admincp panel
      it ended last year

      i think you'll change your mind about 4.0 once you try to modify it or set it up on a large forum

        Promotion emails from vBS are marked as spam. Do not know, why notifications manage to reach my inbox.

          There was a relatively minor discount available before anyone had actually seen vB4. A "faith" pre-order.

            Do you think it was minor? As I remember right it was near 50%.

              TBH it was 3x raise, not discount.

                  Nope. At least not to my knowledge.

                  # Is there any way to get an extension on my expiration date

                  Not unless you renew. Or purchase a new license.

                  # - If I do not upgrade can I continue using 3.8 and the V Bulletin forums or am I just dismissed...???

                  If you have a Owned license, you can continue to use the 3.8.X if you have that in your download section. But you just cant get access to any updates.

                  # - Does the previous license hold any value at all for anything or has it been deemed null and void?

                  3.8 Series? pretty much null and void. You can still use it, but to use any new or future release, you have to buy a completely new license, to my knowledge (I may be wrong, but I dont think I am)
                  Jut a random internet person.

                      If you like product, why not pay full price? Probably in your situation second hand market can help to save some money.

                      There was no real discount for 'vb3 forum' to 'vb4 forum' upgrade (only $20 off, wich is still available).

                      There was discount offer to exchange forum license (v3) to cms license (v4), wich is only good if you need cms.
                      (when vb5 released in future, upgrading vb4 cms license will cost more then upgrading vb4 forum license)

                          on smaller sites before 4.0.2 it worked fine, still does. for larger sites anything before 4.0.2 was a mess, i honestley have no idea if it got any better for larger sites.

                            I have a question related to discount too:
                            is there a kind of discount for a person who want to upgrade from vBulletin 4.0 forum to vBulletin suite? Because i do not think it would be reasonable to charge the same amount for those who upgrade from 3.s versions.
                            Thank you for your response

                              It makes sense to me they would string along the bugs of 4.x series until December of 2010. A sort of catch all licenses type technique.
