Reason 7 and Balance for the same price as Reason 7?

Sorry if this is considered advertising, I don't work for Amazon...I'm also not interested in anyone's view of Amazon's evasion (or not) of tax laws, just using them as an example of a retailer selling Reason. Feel free to share any links if they're cheaper

Reason 7 £349.00

Balance with Reason Essentials £246.00 + Reason 7 Upgrade £89.00 = £335

Am I right that it's a valid way to get Reason 7? To buy the balance and also the upgrade?

According to Amazon it is..

Description for Reason 7 Upgrade states:

Buy this upgrade if you own any of the following products:

Reason (version 1–6.x)

Reason Student/Teacher

Balance with Reason Essentials

I have a friend who want to buy Reason and plays guitar in a band so this would be ideal obviously.

Sure, why not?

After all, that's how capitalism, free markets, etc. works.

Upgrades are only from authorised dealers which Amazon isn't and upgrade from essentials is e299, not e89

Prior to the release of 7 - the upgrade from Balance with Essentials to the full version was £117 in the UK, which made the whole deal around £360 - not sure what the cost is now. That was a great deal and I was sorely tempted, but the interface wasn't right for me, so opted for Logic at £140. I really liked Reason when trialling it, but Logic is so much cheaper and brings advantages of its own (not as much fun though).
