This is my fourth request to have this question answered.  You seem to refuse to respond to my emails so now I'm issuing a topic in the forum.

How does purchasing backupbuddy gold affect the future price of plugin suite? I purchase the suite because there are other plugins I enjoy using but as it comes with backupbuddy I don't want to pay full suite price if I pay for Gold.  Make sense?

My last resort to get this question answered will be to hit up Corey's twitter account.

Thank you.

Hi dabyrom -

I'm sorry you haven't gotten a response yet. I'm going to give a little context just to make sure you have all the information you need.

Our Plugin Suite contains all of our plugins with a one year membership to support and updates. BackupBuddy Gold comes with a lifetime membership for updates and a one year membership to support for only the BackupBuddy plugin.

To answer your questions specifically, if you became a BackupBuddy Gold customer and wanted to also purchase our Plugin Suite, you would be entitled to 25% off of the price of the Plugin Suite.

I hope this answers your question. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Matt, thank you for responding.  As a plugin suite member I already get 25% off renewals.  Does having Backup Gold provide an additional 25% off or is plugin suite going be the exact same price I have been paying.

It's Roz.  Hope all's well.

I thing there is a discrepancy or hope there is with what you just said.  I am trying to make a decision and I can't seem to find an answer.

I understand that the BackupBuddy Gold comes with 1 YEAR of "Ticketed" Support.  The keyword here is TICKETED! (I'm not trying to be smart, just clear!)

IF one does not or cannot pay ADDITIONAL fees each year for Ticketed Support... Do they get Forum (Here in the Forum) support or are they left with a LIFETIME BackupBuddy Gold membership with  NO support at all IF they do not buy the Ticketed support at an EXTRA fee.  That's a deal breaker for me if that is so!

I have it in my shopping cart to buy, I need an answer before I pay.
