#5: Save big on upgrading to Producer

At anytime, ProShow Gold customers can upgrade to Producer and save $50 off the normal price ($249.95). However, did you know that we also offer additional loyalty discounts specifically for customers who have owned ProShow Gold for a year or more?

When upgrading to Producer, these loyalty credits can be applied with the standard $50 upgrade discount, adding up to a savings of as much as $150.
