Not really sure if this is the correct place to ask...

The other day when I was looking at a JetBrains WebStorm personal license, the price was $69. Today, I saw an Ad on SO from JetBrains offering 50% off a WebStorm personal license. When I clicked on the SO ad, I was taken to the JetBrains' WebStorm page; and upon attempting to purchase the WebStorm personal license, the price was still $69. Where is the 50% off?

    Probably a direct email first to JetBrains, and if that doesn't work to the Team here (see link in the footer). Commented Aug 28, 2011 at 18:51

    I'll send an email to JetBrains; SO should be aware of this type of advertising if it really is misleading. I'd like to think there was a mistake somewhere, though. Commented Aug 28, 2011 at 19:32

    I agree, companies that allow advertising should be kept aware if there is a problem. Commented Aug 28, 2011 at 19:34

  • Alexey, was the $69 personal license the already the discounted rate? Or was the 50% off supposed to be an additional 50% off the $69 rate? Commented Sep 1, 2011 at 14:20

    I'm not the sort of person that would use WebStorm, but that's pretty damn impressive service.

I handle advertising sales for Stack Exchange. I have reached out to my contact at Jetbrains to look into this further. Please allow me some time to get answers and I'll post them here.
