Default Auto renew only??

My Vanilla version expires next month, I don't have a choice to renew, and see what my cost will be.

Its forcing auto-renew only!!

Secondly:
I don't know how it turned into subscription from perpetual.

All I want is the $99 year Protools with no support or plugins.

Bad news first:
Unfortunately, the option to buy a Perpetual renewal for $99 from Avid ended in 2019

In my Avid Master Account>My Products>Pro Tools 2020.5, I have the option to “Buy now” a “Pro Tools Update & Support Plan Renewal” for $199

Beneath this I have the option to enter a Renewal Code purchased from an Avid Reseller

Some Resellers may still have discounted stock - but Sweetwater, Vintage King and Alto Music are now advertising $199

Correction: Avid stopped selling REINSTATEMENTS which means "upgrading" your PT license with lapsed support and upgrade plan to current plan. You can (and should) still RENEW while the plan is active. That 99 dollar price was a one time promo.

Hi Janne - welcome back!
PM'd

Please see 2015-2016 pic: Upgrade Plan $99/yr; with a separate optional Support Plan with Plug-Ins for another $99/yr)

Got all the Support I needed by reading the DUC – only paid the $99 Annually for the Upgrade Plan.

At the same time late 2019 when Avid offered the Reinstatements “cheaply”, we could also buy multiple Active Plan Renewals for $99.
This ended December 31, 2019

After this, the “minimum” Perpetual Annual Upgrade price became $199, with the subsequent “Upgrade Price Doubled!” Threads.

Upon checking your account, record shows that you've purchased a Crossgrade to Subscription on August 3 of 2019. The pricing adjustment started on July 1 of 2019. You can check more info on this at https://avid.secure.force.com/pkb/ar...ice-Adjustment

And according to the same article, price of renewal should be still 99 USD for this year.

Let us know if you have further questions.

Thank you,
