A little more insight into the upcoming Autodesk promotions

Your typical reseller is going to contradict what I am about to tell you, but eventually they will confirm the following.

The $0 Migration promotion that starts on the 16th of May requires that you be on subscription at the time that you take advantage of the promotion, which is anytime before July 16th.  That means that if you currently are not on subscription, you can do a retroactive subscription or late renewal.

If you are 30 to 364 days from an expired subscription, you can do a late renewal for an extra $100, then take advantage of the promotion.
If you are more than 364 days from an expired subscription or you never had subscription, wait until the 16th, and do a 20% off Get Current promotion for your product, then you can do the $0 migration.

You just can't have purchased a new license after May 2nd.  Anyone with an older license can upgrade then migrate to Building Design Suite Premium.

So, why would you want to do this?  Of course so you can pay an extra $250/year for subscription once your contract renews.  But, the reality is, you get 3ds Max for free, as well as Revit MEP, Revit Architecture and Revit Structure in the same package.

Should you do that?  Well, since all of your competitors will, don't you have to keep up with them and make sure you have the same tools (ha. I had typed tolls by accident...subscription is not a toll).

 Of course, you can ignore the Revit Suite to Building Design Suite Premium promotion and pay $1495 later for the same thing you'd get for free now, but wouldn't you want to take advantage of the one time that Autodesk gives something more to subscription customer rather than owners of AutoCAD 14? 

Also, consider that so many people will take advantage of this that BIM really is going to explode in the very near future.  Now, if there were only enough Revit professional designers out there...

Plenty of designers, just no jobs.

What about International customers Greg? Any offer like this for us?

What sort of subscription do we have to currently be on to be eligible for the promotion? Will a seat license subscription be sufficient?
