Dunking Suppose I bought this and then upgraded to Professional. That would cost me the $14.90 here plus $125 upgrade from your website, so $140 near enough. Or I could just go straight to professional from your website and pay $79.

Am I missing something? What does that extra $60 get me buying through Bits?

Jane Blue Dunking - Once you own the basic version you'll get occasional offers to upgrade at a discount if you register with your real email address. They don't send too many emails, like some companies do

I used the basic version for a couple years before accepting their offer to upgrade at a discount. You can still experiment with making filters with the basic version, you just can't save them. Once I started making filters, popular and I won free upgrades for life!

I'm not affiliated with them in any way (other than contributing filters to the filter library). This is just a great company with an excellent and ingenious product. When I saw the offer via Bits DuJour in my email, I came here to recommend the product because I'm a big fan. When I saw your question I figured I might as well chip in my two cents.

By the way, I got started by buying the basic version right here through Bits. Highly recommended!

Dunking Thanks for the info, @Jane Blue - I might well take advantage of this offer, although I would have preferred to go straight to pro.

Filter Forge (Jane) @Dunking Not all the users need Pro, right? And it is always better to buy exactly what you need and don't bother with upgrades.

And yes -- newsletters with special offers are real.

Carson User I'm all in using Professional Plus and have lifetime librarian & library. Started with basic and used it enough with great results to warrant the upgrade. I would agree that the emails aren't too frequent and are meaningful when sent. Save your pennies along the way and go lifetime if you can justify the investment. I'm glad I did as did the folks leaving comments about the lifetime offers (that I saw when researching). I can say support was extremely responsive when I had a computer crash. Not always a given this day and age. Very much appreciated. This is a very easy 'highly recommended', especially at this price point. No down side at all and a very slick program. At minimum you'll have a very robust trial and get on the email list for discounted upgrades as others have mentioned.

Dunking Thanks very much for the comments, people. I guess I'll start at the bottom and look out for a reasonable upgrade, as you suggest. Hope you're getting a kickback for this!

Ron White Did anyone answer Dunking's question about paying $140 for pro version through upgrades vs. paying $79 by buying pro directly from web site?
May 1 at 10:48am Copy Link
Carson User Ron, I'll take a stab at answering that question. The Pro version can be bought for $79 via a link on this web page that Bits provides. (Please note folks: if you want to upgrade the Basic version, you may click here). So the question is really whether to buy Basic or Pro out of the gate based on their features vs. cost. The upgrade question is a longer term consideration. The software is actively supported and has major upgrades roughly every year or so. Each major version upgrade is about the same as the Pro version cost being discussed here. Sometimes a little more with a sweetener and sometimes on rarer occassions a little less. If you use the software regularly and like the new features as Filter Forge continues to evolve, it makes sense to go lifetime at some point. It's tougher on the pocketbook initially but a great buy under the right individual circumstances. Disclaimer: I have no connection or relationship with the Filter Forge folks and expressing personal opinion. If I'm off base I'll ask the Publisher to chime in as warranted.

Ron White Thanks, Carson User. I've heard so much praise for Filter Forge, but don't have a clear idea of how to use it. I'll probably so with the basic version to get my feet wet.

Drew User I thought it worth pointing out that this deal isn't technically an exclusive deal from this (or any other) Software Giveaway or Discount Sites, as they are actually currently offering the SAME 80% discount on their Website off all of their different Editions of the software throughout this entire period of the Corona Virus Emergency!

So the *80% discount will still be available on their Website for any version AFTER this deal has expired here.

Ron White Thanks, Drew. I couldn't get it through Bits DuJour because I kept getting an error message at checkout I asked for assistance and didn't get it. I'll go toFilter Forge's site.

Filter Forge (Jane) @Drew Yep, we're offering a long-term covid associated 80% discount on our site. But here you had 90%.
