    Same with my wife. I replace my computer every two years, so I have lots of hard drives.

    You replace your wife every two years? Whoa!

    Still not sure if they're finished adding to it and that the prices are right, though.


    Looks like I should go through and reset a few things. :-)

    Yeah, the prices don't seem spectacular to me right now. I can wait, I don't have PP2012 anyway and don't expect to have it until next year some time. I just wanted to make sure I had all the free items before they go back to pay.

    Yay ! Finally I found out, where the really important info is :red: and as well finally I got some of my salary for which I was waiting throughout the last weeks. As soon as a bit of it is on my PayPal account, I can think of shopping ;-) ...

    regarding the buy it all bonus - do I just put it in my cart item by item and at the end DAZ knows and gives me the free figure thingy or do I click something to automatically put the whole lot in my cart all in one hit and with an option to choose which bonus item I want?
    Love esther

    You buy them as you wish, as long as you get them all by the time limit, which I think is the end of the month for this one. And then, 30 days after the end of the sale (to allow for refund processing/returns) DAZ runs a process to see who bought and kept all the 'buy-it-all' items and contacts those people by email.

    Sound!
    That's the info I needed! Thanks very much Namffuak! So I'm going to cancel my request on Sales Support, and shall be waiting patiently. :)

    (I am ready to admit my blindness, but I did not find the info before this post, (page 41) and I stay curious to know where you got it ...)

    All in all, the way Daz marketters use to shoot arrows of promotions in every direction at the same time looks being a trip full and anxiousness for a poor untrained customer like me, but looking backward, that gives us some very much appreciated feeling of adventure.

    Let's live dangerously! Just leave and forget World of Warcraft and come to 10 anniversary Daz sales! :-)

    Caput Caseum doesn't seem to be available in Poser. It's only in the People folder under My Library and doesn't show up anywhere in the Runtime folder. Took me forever to find it in Explorer!

    .

    looks like new DO's in the store. Looks like they were saving the good new Genesis stuff for the Poser users to show up.

    Uhh... It's a Genesis outfit. You'll need to generate Poser Companion files with the new version of DS4.5 (4.5.1.6) or wait for DAZ to update the installers with the Poser Companion files (for use with the DSON Importer for Poser).

    Where are all of the "Buy it All" Bonus items located?I assume there are spicefic items we need to buy to be able to take advantage of this great opportunity?

    That is amazing. So far there are only 10 items. I guess there will be more to buy before this sale ends.

    Thanks, Mike.

    I wish they would stop changing the prices on everything over and over -_- Yesterday early in the morning there was a bunch of things at really good discounts but a few hours later the prices doubled (for example, Genesis Ethnic Bundle was $8 then jumped up to the $16). Other items went down in price though yesterday and I had grabbed the Anime Dress + Textures and Percy for each under $2 as well as that Ruffle Bikini to boost the price up to nearly the full $6 so I could get the most out of my coupon. Yesterday, Ruffle Bikini was only 74c, and today it's $1.49.

    Anybody know what keeps going on with the prices bouncing around like crazy? :(

    I hear they've been having a tough time with the sales prices -- a lot of Genesis stuff got extra discounts applied when they created the sale category for them, then they fixed those, I'm still seeing some items with weird discounts, either too much or too little. If I see something I want at more than 75% off, I assume it's a mistake and get it fast before it gets fixed.

    :-) IMHO there are not hot air pop streams at DAZ, just depress holes. That means saving money needs to be reflexive. Fast grab is a nice training room for that, and buying self gift-certificates is a good idea to prevent inking kilometric long credit card reports.

    I didn't have time to grab any of the goodies first thing yesterday morning :( Stupid dialup takes it's sweet time to load anything and I had to get ready to leave for town within the hour after waking up so I had just clicked the "Add to Cart" because I knew the secure pages wouldn't load before I had to go :(

    I did grab the 4 items with my coupon yesterday that were at discounted prices. I see a few things again today that are cheaper than they were yesterday. I can't spend much this month though so I have to figure out which I want -_-

    atryeu, I feel your pain. Ended up taking a several big ticket items out of my cart after I was able to come back online. The earlier prices yesterday finally seemed reasonable, especially for a special sale like a 10th annual anniversary. Afterwards, they were back to being unreasonable. Oh well... It will probably be a while before a reasonable price for gen5 figures comes up. Plus what kind of tweaked out percentage is 58% off for a 10th anniversary sale. It makes no sense.

    So does anyone have a link to the clothes and accessories on sale right now? The official one in the "shop > sales & promotions" just points generically to the entire category, not the sale items. Also how long do you think this one is supposed to last? Thanks :)

    I just went to the sale category http://www.daz3d.com/shop/clothing-accessories/ andI selected DAZ 3D in the Vendor filter and sort by Release Date with the arrow pointing down so the most recent are at the top. Haven't come across anything yet that says when this particular DO category sale ends.

    I just noticed the Sale picture on the promotions pages says "Plus save on select Genesis items" which explains the generous discounts on the Genesis items I bought.

    58% is what you get when you stack a 30% sale with a 40% PC discount. The 40% is 10 percentage points more than the usual 30% discount, which does make sense for a 10th anniversary sale.

  • meghanmeghan Posts: 57
    edited October 2012

    Sorry, I should have been clearer about what I meant by 'tweaked out'. 58% is derived based on stacked discounts and that's what I consider the problem. It's a kludgey discount amount. A final amount of 58% off just highlights Daz's nebulous marketing strategies. On a side-note, adding an extra 10% to the usual 30% club discount seems kinda stingy for a 10th-year anniversary.

    Yes. I was aware it was a Genesis Only outfit. I just rather expected new products to be usable in Poser now that DAZ and SM have a Genesis solution implemented for Poser that does not require DAZ Studio to be installed on a computer.

    Kinda hard to convert yourself if you're one of those customers unable to run DS4 :wink:

    Vendors are slowly updating some of their most popular packs. It's pretty safe to say that most packs coming out now will have .duf support.

    I am noticing the Additional Information tab on a product page has being updated on the Additional Information Tab with "DSON Importer for Poser" in the Compatible 3D Software box, although I saw at least one item on the DSON product category (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/dson-all/), Genesis Ranger is missing that info even though that product was updated with the DSON Poser Companion files. Go figure..

    Hi, I have 3 coupons, a bonus coupon, a platinum club coupon and spend $100, and I have a whole lot of things in my cart. Each time I add one of these coupons the other coupon I just put in seems to stop working. How do I make all 3 of them "take" please?
