Default Upgrading from PT11 --> PT11 . . . :-)

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

For what seems like months I've been deluged with e-mails from Avid telling me I must must must upgrade to PT11, and I'll get support and updates through 3/2016 for $199. While I agree that's a good price for an upgrade, what if I ALREADY HAVE PT11? I was an early adopter, and today, following up on another e-mail received from Avid, their blog said this:
Already got Pro Tools 11 or Pro Tools | HD 11? Buy the upgrade/support plan now and receive all future upgrades through March 31, 2015—Coming soon - See more at: http://www.avidblogs.com/aes-los-ang...are-licensing/
Confusion reigns.

Can anyone direct me to the right option for someone who already owns PT11 and is interested in getting in on the support?

The support/upgrade plan for CURRENT PT11 users has not been published yet. You will have until the end of 2015 as I understand, to get the support/upgrade option.

Some users report the price will be lower, some say the same as the PT11 upgrade. I think a little lower would be best since we already paid the upgrade fee and just want to add support/future upgrades.

Stay tuned.

I would advise not holding your breath waiting for a discount.

Your $199 is for the service plan.

For a whole lot of reasons that I think will soon become evident, Avid just wants to get everybody on PT 11...
Note that all opinions, observations, whatever, in this post are mine, unless I'm being mean or am wrong, in which case it's somebody else's fault. I do not work for Avid (their loss)...my only relationship with Avid is that of a customer (when I'm not too poor to buy stuff, like now)...and that hot administrative assistant...that's more of a "thing" than a "relationship" (that should keep them guessing for a while...)

Just rockin'...what more is there?
