Using the online chat I contacted Avid and got the following responses:

Me: "I can't find a way to renew my Complete Plug-in Bundle from my Avid Account. Do I just repurchase from the Avid Store and then authorize the new license to my iLok?"

Avid: "Thank you for contacting Avid Online Store Support.

You no longer have a to manually purchase a new Avid Complete Plug-In Bundle, since this plugin bundle is already included in your Perpetual Product with System ID: ******** and will be valid and can be use as long as your Plan is active.

Hope this is clear. Let me know if I can help with anything else. Thanks!"

Me: "I just renewed my Perpetual License, but my account still says I need to renew my Complete Plug-In Bundle. It has a different renewal date. I thought the CPB was a separate purchase/renewal."

Avid: "Apologies for the confusion, but the one you're seeing with a different end date was the free plugin bundle offered last year and you no longer have to renew that as we now included the Avid Complete Plug-In Bundle as part of the features if customer's has an active plan or subscription."

Is this true, that the ACBP is now included in the Software Updates and Plan? I thought the ACPB was separated from and a separate price from the SUP in case people didn't want the plugins.

Anyone help me out here? I don't want to have my ACPB go "silent" because I didn't renew. And if it is part of the SUP, why is it still showing me a renewal message and saying the ACPB is a 1-year subscription?

Yes, it is included with the basic update plan for all levels as a sort of unpaid subscription. IOW, the license isn't perpetual if you didn't purchase the bundle, it's active as long as either your subscription and/or update plan is active. Avid also gave away perpetual licenses for ProComp and ProLimit to just about everyone with a perpetual license last year also.

Do you have PT Ultimate?

The CPB is included with the Ultimate subscriptions/plans now.

The confusion has been eliminated. Avid Customer Service mistakenly thought I had Ultimate, but I only have Standard. They have called me to apologize and gifted me a free year of the ACPB. Thank you to Jeffro and Ann for clearing all this up, very much appreciated and great customer service.
