Regular readers of Macintoshhowto.com will know that one of my favourite pieces of software is Dragon Dictate for Macintosh. Well the latest version, ‘Dragon for Mac’, appeared today at nuance.com. Check out my review of here.
I just purchased it but there are a few different prices around!
When I first went to the website to download it it was giving me a price of $150 for the upgrade from Dragon Dictate 4. (The full version is $200.)
Here is the upgrade price of $150:
After about 20 seconds on the website it offered me a 20% discount so the $150 dropped to $120.
$120 looked good. But luckily, I opened Dragon Dictate version 4 on my computer and selected “check for upgrades”.
Following this link gave me a special upgrade price of $99.
Australians can buy the upgrade for $134 from here.
Given that my purchase of US$99 translated to $143 Australian dollars, $134 is a pretty good price. But it’s only a ‘pre-order’, I’m not sure when it ships!
A day later I receive the following crazy marketing email from Nuance:
I open the link and they now offer me the full version (not the upgrade) for $AU135.
So the best way to get a good price might be to go to their website, wait a bit, leave the website, and wait for them to send you the email with a special deal.
