Reason 6.5 price

I just ordered Reason 6.5 through musiciansfriend.com because it was $50.00 cheaper and came with a 4gb bonus drum loop thing. I really wanted to get the instant activation code through this here site, but it's $449 w/o any freebies. what the heck.

I know, right? Props should really prevent retailers from offering bundles and attractive deals.

Why?
I think that will be a bad move.
Give retailers the freedom to use their own marketing tactics and let them be creative with it.
If Propellerhead gives retailers a 40% commission on a sale, but one retailer decide to decrease 20% on it's salesprice (thus, that retailer lowers its own commission 40%-20%=20%) then Propellerheads does not get hurt at all, nor the buyer (customer).

That's business.
So if a retailer "bribes" customers with legit samples as a bonus when they buy Reason, why not?
I really see nothing illegal or shady here.

I think you missed the tongue in cheek humour there

Doesnt the 449 include shipping and taxes sorted worldwide? Thats already a bonus. Im lucky to be in a city full of large competitive brick and mortar music stores, but if i was in samoa and needed reason, i think the props webprice is just fine.
