Re: Math Software

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

MathCad has in the past conducted marketing tests to see how they should 
price their software.  When MathCad (DOS version) was selling for $395, I got 
an offer from them sent to my office address (from Buffalo, NY) for $99 and I 
took them up on the offer.  A while later, I got an offer from them addressed 
to my home address to purchase the same program for $49.95.

Many complaints about this were published in the media.

Be cautious and see if someone hasn't received a different offer.
