Do you have a link for this? I just looked on the Adobe site, and unless they're hiding it, I see only the $549 upgrade option from Elements.
Here's a quote from another forum... I've seen it on a few now... I can't guarantee is legitimacy since I didn't order and am not in the market for CS3, but appears that you must order by phone from Adobe: [The phone number in the quote is the same as posted at Adobe.com... so it doesn't appear to be a redirection scam, at least.]
Adobe Photoshop CS3 Upgrade From Elements for $299
This software sells retail for around $625 for the full version, depending upon where you buy it (not counting academic versions). Currently $625 at Amazon. The CS3 upgrade version sells for $199, but you can only upgrade from actual Photoshop, not Elements, which is what makes this deal Slick IMHO, IF you want or need CS3.
I upgraded from Elements 4 to CS3 when this promotion ran about six months ago, and I was expecting to receive an "upgrade version". They sent me the full retail version of CS3.
If you have a version of Elements that came bundled free with a scanner or camera, you should qualify for the upgrade if you have the serial number, as that was the case in the past promotion. You'd have to call the Adobe 800 number to confirm, so I would say YMMV until you call and confirm.
