Product Subscription and Free Upgrades

Your Free Upgrade

If you have a Product Subscription, you get your upgrade to VUE 2015 at no additional charge. Download instructions were sent out in a separate e-mail automatically.

You are also entitled to the VUE 2015 upgrade even if you are no longer under product subscription, but would have qualified for the free upgrade had it been released November 27, 2014. Please contact us to reclaim your free upgrade.

What is Product Subscription?

We all know that new versions can be really exciting, with new and enhanced features, and we all love to be using the latest, greatest release. Product Subscription makes it easier for you, and easier on your wallet.

With Product Subscription, and a small monthly payment, you receive all your product upgrades as soon as they are officially released (and the total amount you end up paying is far less than the cost of straight upgrades - up to 50% less, actually)!

Product Subscription is a cost effective upgrade program available to VUE Esprit, Studio and Complete users*.

Prices above are for C.Club members. Non C.Club members pay an additional $2/month.

*Note: Access to Product Subscription is only available during the first month following your activation of VUE.
