Pro Sites Free Level

Seems like I tried all the combinations and read this thread -
but I still can't get the free level "dismiss" button to appear. Yes, I'm creating the sites with a fresh username. No, I'm not logged in as the admin. No, I do not have Pay to Blog checked.

I had a $0 level setup but I deleted that to use the default free level and moved every other level up one notch. In the thread listed above, Aaron states that having the "trial" enabled would hide this feature. But then marikamitsos shows a screenshot of a trial level setup to get it to display. I tried it both ways but still no dismiss button.

Can someone clear this up for us? Any ideas on how to get this to work as designed?

Thanks so much.
