As I said, nothing 2012 was available. The server is pre-configured (defined by the program), so we barely got to choose anything there. We were lucky to get the CALs approved for purchase, and of course we had to pick 2008 CALs. It's great that UPS has the CTP program, but it's terrible because everything you purchase is pre-configured, and it isn't easy to get customization approved.
I think that you can buy Software Assurance subscription separately. Also check what the upgrade path is to see that the bundled Edition is actually on the upgrade path with SA. With the CALs, get 2012 CALs as they are downgradeable to be 2008 CALs, so it is future proofed if you do get 2012 in the future. You will have to activate the licenses manually through Microsoft Clearinghouse as a 2008 Licensing Server won't activate 2012 licenses automatically.

I know there is no technical upgrade path, I was just hoping there was some sort of "you got screwed into an old version after the release of the new, you are entitled to either" sort of option.
There is no upgrade path for servers. So no, there is no inexpensive upgrade.
