If you buy at the end of the quarter or end of the year (even better) you can often get a much better price on Altium.

I understand that you have been using CircuitStudio for some time now. As you know, CircuitStudio is an incredibly intuitive ECAD tool that was designed to be stepping stone to the full-featured suite, Altium Designer.
Having said that, I have an exciting opportunity for you to upgrade your CircuitStudio license to Altium Designer 18, including one year of subscription for just $4,995, which is roughly a 50% discount! This opportunity is valid from now until February 23rd.

Yea, same thing I got word for word - junk mail, seems our money is being taken so that we can be put on a marketing list. The inconsistency in pricing is worrying as they clearly don't take the product seriously. Altium are presumably not making much out of this if Farnell can sell at 45% so it's a marketing tool for altium and farnell are making money out of old rope as all it costs them is 1 member of staff. I suppose for the two of them it is a better deal than Farnell selling Altium their customer list.....

Altium seem to be the only company that sell two versions of the same thing instead of doing what everyone else does and have tiered licensing, that way the low end CS functionality is taken care of as the core of AD and the 1000's they charge for AD gets spent on the advanced features. Nope instead they are doing it all 3 times over so we loose out because they are running around like headless chickens....
