Default Renewal Question

My Pro Tools perpetual plan is up for renewal in November. If I buy and upgrade plan right now can I wait to use it? The reason I’m asking is because it is on sale right now. Do I have to use it right away.

you can deposit it in your account right away. It extends from when your current plan ends. You don't lose any bought for "time" so there's no reason to wait before adding it to your account.

(I bought multiple years and deposited them all at once last year when it went on sale and I checked about this. Works great and my plan shows it not expiring until all the years I deposited finish on my original, original renewal date. So bought and deposited in Sept 2017 and my expiration wasn't until Nov 2017 and after adding multiple years in Sept 2017, the plan doesn't expire until Nov 2019.)

Maybe a US only sale for our Labor Day holiday? Though I think you can still buy from online retailers like Sweetwater. (It's a 20% off on all software products/renewals)

Question, I renewed my subscription on my perpetual license on the Avid Web-Sight. Should the subscription portion on the iLok show renewed also? Its still showing ending 2018.
