Apple today updated the
Hot Deals section
of its online store with information about new special offers for Mac users, including the recently announced
Premiere switch offer.
Calling the specials “The Premiere of Three Great Deals,” the Hot Deals site outlines the three new options to drive creative professionals to adopt Final Cut Pro and Final Cut Express, the professional and hobbyist-level digital video editing solutions by Apple.
Apple is offering Final Cut Express for free (a US$299 value) if you trade in your Mac or Windows copy of Adobe Premiere. The promotion comes on the heels of Adobe’s decision to drop support for the Mac in its latest release of the digital video editing software.
If you’d prefer Final Cut Pro 4 (which normally retails for $999), you can download a rebate coupon worth $500.
Or, if you’re planning on buying a new Mac, you can add on Final Cut Express for $99, $200 off the regular retail price, when you buy both at the same time.
All three offers are available until September 20, 2003.
That’s not all, either. The online Apple Store is offering “a little summer mayhem” by giving gamers a break on Dungeon Siege and Unreal Tournament 2003 — players who buy the games can save $20 instantly. And if that’s not your style, you can grab Medal of Honor and Medal of Honor Spearhead from the online Apple Store, and save yourself $15 in the process.
