I have a 2 year SMA that I got just before the rolling out of the 2021 JAWS.  However, with a deal like this, it couldn't hurt to take advantage of it, especially when it cost $160 for 2 upgrades.

I heard Erik say they hope to be able to offer the Subscription outside  the US at some point in the future.

then maybe, he can send a sale over to Canada. Great deal, only one problem it's only available in the US. Believe it or not there are the countries beside the United States in the world. Smile.

Morning Richard,
He doesn't post very often, but Eric Damery from FS / Vispero is a
member of the list.  I don't recall his title, but he's pretty high up
there.
Stay safe & take care.  Mike.
Just once, I want a username and password prompt to say:  "Close Enough!"

That is an excellent question for Freedom Scientific, and I have
personally never seen anyone from Freedom Scientific on this list.
I'd write Eric Damery directly:

I wonder if the exchange rate has anything to do with the price difference?

I'm in the US, so am pretty unaware of how that works for those of you
in other countries.

Since their software is international, it seems like something could be
done but I suspect it is the difference in copyright laws etc.

Software means never having to say you're finished

Is there a reason all of their sales seem to only apply in the US?
Jaws is already more expensive in the UK as it is.
