Talk to your SAS account manager. SAS's pricing varies so much depending on so many different factors, and even what currency you use.

You've asked a forbidden question. Go shame yourself!
Seriously, SAS sales are driven much more like specialized business software than consumer software. So finding a suggested retail price, and working from there, just doesn't exist.
My experience across many types of organizations is that price is highly variable, depending mainly on how many licenses and products or bundles. I pushed a few years ago to get a price on a single seat license (a one year license, like all SAS licenses), and fainted when I got it. On the other hand, for large companies, universities, and other institutions, it's a real bargain.
Hope that helps to at least get you started.
