Did it work? I canceled my order w/Best Buy because they hit my account for $53 and it sunk it into a negative balance.

Windows 7 pricing latest: $137 family pack, steep discounts in UK

By John Lister



Unconfirmed but credible reports suggest there will indeed be a Windows 7 family pack, priced at $136.95 – which may upset some who’ve already bough multiple copies in an advance sale. Meanwhile buyers in Britain look set to get some major discounts both before and after the system’s release.
As Dave Parrack reported at the weekend, speculation about a family pack began mounting when a blogger noted references to it in the licensing agreement of the latest leaked edition. It appears the scheme will work differently than one of the same name with Vista. In that case, buyers of the Ultimate edition were allowed to add the Home Premium edition to extra machines at $49 a time. The Windows 7 scheme looks to be a three-for-one deal with Home Premium, though there may be some qualifying criteria.
Today Ed Bott of ZDnet notes two online retailers have a family pack listed, albeit with an ‘Out of Stock’ label. They price it at $136.95 and $144.95 respectively. The listings are particularly credible as they list a dedicated Unique Price Code, the number which appears on barcodes and is unique to a particular product.
If the basics of the deal are indeed three Vista-Windows 7 Home Premium upgrades for $137, the complaints of some readers which came when the story first broke may have some validity. One man noted he’d bought three copies under the limited-time advance payment offer; at $150, he may well be out of pocket. To be fair, there will be few people in such a position and, while the principle may sting, it’s hardly an earth-shattering sum of money to be down by.
Across the Atlantic, British buyers will (as usual) be paying more for the software in direct comparison to the U.S., but the discounts on offer are much steeper. Whereas the advance payment offer in the U.S. cuts the price of a Home Premium upgrade from $120 to $50, the equivalent U.K. deal from some retailers is a two-thirds price cut, from £150 to £50.
There may also be savings on offer for those in the U.K. who wait until release. It’s reported that the official £150 price for a Home Premium upgrade will be cut to £79 between the October 22 release and the end of the year. Depending on currency fluctuations, that means there’s even a slim possibility the system will be slightly cheaper in the U.K. than the U.S. for a couple of months.

China has a deal almost as good.
Update Time :2009-4-20 Source: Sina Technology Windows 7 prices will be 399 yuan and 499 yuan. This converts to 49.96 USD 62.48 USD.
-------------------- 新浪科技讯4月20日凌晨消息,微软大中华区消费与在线事业部总经理韦青向新浪科技透露,微软下一代操作系统Windows 7的价格预计将与Vista持平。 Sina Tech the early morning of April 20th message, Microsoft Greater China, consumer and online division, general manager of Sina science and technology to韦青revealed that Microsoft's next-generation operating system, Windows 7 and the price is expected to be Vista unchanged.

If the $137 for a family pack of 3 Home Premium holds and it's officially announced before Oct 22, that'll give me time to cancel my order of upgrades and get the full thing. Hmmmm .... watching ..... waiting

I already know which one I'll be going with here!

For anything labeled "preorder" you have to move fast however once you have the decision made for any individual disks or a family pack offer. There's also some other items many haven't seen for 7. Amazon.com: Products tagged with windows 7


Unfortunately after July 11th today for many already the promotional offers come to an end! Windows 7 - Buy and download from Microsoft Store

Sorry I didn't respond sooner or in time. I was preparing for and driving to vacation. Newegg lists my order as on hold and I do not have a charge for it on my CC.

Definately for Home Premium, Profressional and Ultimate. Microsoft got away from the whole 32bit/64bit mulitple disk and mulitple orders. Each edition will offer both versions. However, the license will only be good for one version. You can not put the 32 bit on one computer and the 64 bit on another.

It is only a matter of time before they probably get away from 32 bit all together.
