BBEdit 9 Free Upgrade Eligibility

If you purchased BBEdit 9.6 on or after January 1, 2011, you are eligible to receive an upgrade to BBEdit 10 free of charge.

If you purchased BBEdit from the Mac App Store during the eligibility period, you will receive BBEdit 10 at no charge. It will delivered by the Mac App Store desktop application as soon as BBEdit 10 is ready for sale in the Mac App Store. None of the remaining information on this page is relevant to you, and you can stop reading here.

Customers who purchased directly from Bare Bones Software within the eligibility period will receive an email message with new license information. Free upgrades will be sent out starting the week of July 25, 2011.

(If you do not receive an email notification by August 1, 2011, and you purchased BBEdit 9 directly from Bare Bones Software, please contact our Sales Department for assistance.)

If you purchased BBEdit from a reseller during the eligibility period, please follow the steps below to take advantage of this offer. We will process free upgrade requests on a first-come first-served basis.

  1. Fax your dated proof of purchase receipt to us at 978-251-0525.

  2. Include your product serial number (which can be found on the CD case).

  3. Include your complete contact information, including the address you want the product registered to and your email address. Please note that we will not be able to send you your free upgrade if you do not include your email address. The information that you provide is protected by our Privacy Policy.

Please also note that you can download the BBEdit 10 demo to use until your new product serial number(s) arrives. You can then use the serial number to activate the demo. (We recommend that you not do this if you purchased BBEdit from the Mac App Store, since you won’t be receiving a serial number from us.)

Paid Upgrades

If you have any registered commercial version of BBEdit prior to 9.0, or you have a registered copy of BBEdit 9 which you purchased prior to the eligibility period, you may purchase an upgrade.
