Windows 7: Windows 7 Family Pack, Anytime Upgrade prices leak

Windows 7 Family Pack, Anytime Upgrade prices leak
Microsoft blogger, Ed Bott, has uncovered the prices for both the Windows 7 Family Pack and Anytime Upgrade options.

According to Bott various retailers have leaked the prices by mistake, which isn't the first time in the history of Windows releases. Retailer Expercom still has the prices live on their site (at the time of writing), University IT Computer Sales also had similar pricing but pulled the information - Google cached copy. Both companies are small resellers and both have assigned official Microsoft part numbers to the products. Expercom valued the Windows 7 Family Pack at $136.95 whilst University IT Computer Sales listed it as $144.95.

Expercom also have Anytime Upgrade pricing:
Microsoft - Model 4WC-00040 $81.95
Microsoft - Model 7KC-00040 $90.95
Microsoft - Model 39C-00040 $137.95
All the prices could vary but keep in mind that if retailers have product codes associated to them then it's 99% that these are genuine products but that the prices could vary and may not be final.

I wonder if the family pack will have 64 bit?

What I wonder is how or will the family pack be cheaper than 3 copies @ 50% off? If its $136 for 3 licenses then I want to cancel my 3 copies @ 49.99 each. I think the family pack has to be closer to $149 or $199.
