Updated August 20th, 2014 – Our favorite free upgrade offer from Parallels is back! Buy a copy of Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac from the Parallels Online Store or any authorized reseller between August 1st and October 15th, 2014 and get a free upgrade to Parallels Desktop 10 for Mac. The upgrade is not automatically given on all orders so you will need to remember to make the request to Parallels by following the steps outlined below.
Here is how to redeem this offer:
- Step 1: Purchase a qualifying version of Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac from the official Parallels Store or from any one of their authorized resellers (like Amazon, Best Buy, etc.). Qualifying versions include Desktop 9 for Mac full, upgrade, student and Switch to Mac editions. Ineligible versions include licenses sold under their Volume License Program, OEM versions purchased unlawfully, orders made from unauthorized resellers (including eBay), and Enterprise Edition licenses. If you’ve ordered outside of the purchase window, either before August 1st, 2014 or after October 15th, 2014, then you will not be able to qualify for this offer.
- Step 2: If you purchase directly from the Parallels Store during the Tech Guarantee period, then there is nothing else you need to do as you will be automatically notified when Parallels 10 is released and an upgrade key will be sent to you automatically. If you purchased from an authorized Parallels reseller, you will need to follow out these instructions directly through Parallels customer support. You will need to provide them with a copy of your receipt as proof of purchase.
- Step 3: Once you receive your activation key/serial number, you’ll be able to install the upgrade on your Mac.
