    It’s the middle of winter down under, we’re freezing our appendages off, and DAZ runs a “Beat the Heat” sale. Cruel. Very Cruel.

    Sale Ends June 29, 2012.

    Not according to the newsletter I just got tonight — it says the sale ends on the 25th.

    I hope it is the 29th. That's the day I get paid. I'll miss it totally if it's the 25th.

    Here

    It doesn't filter out PC items, and the first page actually depends on what your view sort is. If you're showing 60 items per page, it starts at the very bottom of page 1.

    There may be some items missing because they're not properly indexed, but I seem to recall that being an issue occasionally in the old store as well.

    Just under 4000 items? I was sure there were more than that just before the old store was pulled, and I don't think there have been any retirals in the last couple of months. Are you sure that's everything — I've found changing the view to 60 per page frequently messes up the total number of items that particular filter combination can see.

    First off, I need to say "OUCH" to Aelfric. That sounds painful. It's so hot here that I'm growing additional appendages.
    Second off, I need to say "YIKES" about the "sale ends" date. The e-mail did say 06/25. Who are we going to trust, those monkeys in the Newsletter department or DAZ_Cameron? It's okay.......I trust them more too. Here's the deal though, I think we can get them to extend the sale to the 29th if you all help me spread the buzz about the sale. Share the names of the DAZ Originals that you want to recommend to others in this thread. If we can generate enough excitement, they'll HAVE to extend the sale to the 29th. It's the PERFECT PLAN!!!

    That was a sales pitch if I ever heard one ;-P

    Even at 15, the count is the same.


    That said, I know some things are missing, but that's the closest I can get to having the store show me everything. (Note to Store Web Team, an "All Products" category actually would be appreciated.)

    I wish Daz would add a "exclude PC items" in the store filter like they use to have in the store before the last store upgade.

    WARNING: Daz store still does not recognise that you have already purchased a product.:-S

    I just know this sale is going to be an exercise in frustration trying to navigate a badly functioning store.:shut:

    I'm far too new to say what I'd recommend, but what I hope to buy? Victoria 5 Pro Suite. At the normal price there's no way I could rationalize paying that much all at once, but at the sale price it's a no-brainer. I'd also love to pick up the V4 and M4 Shapes for Genesis, and the Kids 4 Complete, if I can budget it.

    I was originally planning to buy Reality this month, but if this sale extends until the 29th, I'll have to put that off until next month.

    what I'm getting :
    The Central District Subway and Foreign Kisses Central District Subway because I missed those at release and they look awesome..
    http://www.daz3d.com/shop/the-central-district-subway/
    http://www.daz3d.com/shop/foreign-kisses-central-district-subway/

    and M4 Elite Texture: Stratton, he's the Elite texture I'm missing
    http://www.daz3d.com/shop/m4-elite-texture-stratton/


    Recommendations from the sale items:
    Beowulf or Hardcore by Uzilite - m3 and m4 version are available and both could be used with Genesis with the legacy shapes if that tickles your azaleas.
    The M3 versions are at a super price >

    Hi there, a query to the admins. Is there any reason why PC products are not being discounted? I thought they were DAZ 3D products too but they are all showing as full price. I am not a PC member and would have expected to be able to purchase these products at the discounted price.

    "Freezing our appendages off" is definitely relative. I cordially invite you to visit Fargo, North Dakota or Edmonton, Alberta in December for a powerful object lesson... :cheese:

    Winter in Australia is quite nice in my opinion.

    Greetings,
    The Kids 4 Morphs++ since I can't use GenX to convert any of the good kid figures over w/o it, and I want to render my family using Genesis, and some of those kid figures come really close.


    I suppose I should look into buying a bundle and getting the K4 and Mark I purchased a few days ago refunded... It's significantly cheaper with the sale.

    I'm taking the advantage of this sale to get animals; I'm a newb, so I don't have lots of them, so best to get the cream of the crop while I'm at it!

    African Elephant (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/african-elephant) so I can take advantage of my free mammoth morph.
    Silverkey3D's Bat (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/bat-silverkey3d) so I can blow it up in size and make Dire Bats!
    Cold Blooded (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/cold-blooded) -- and possibly Morphing Python (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/morphing-python), depending on how my request for consultation turns out, if the Morphing Python in store has updates vs the free version I already own.
    Stag Beetle (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/stag-beetle) because a Giant Stag Beetle is one of those D&D staples.
    Silverkey3D's Monkey (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/silverkey-3d-monkey), because animal familiars are too, and it is so darn cute!

    Just a question, why is the Michael 5 3D Model Pro Suite showing a normal price of $199.95 and a discounted price of $139.97?


    Is it not meant to be 65% off? The Victoria 5 3D Model Pro Suite has a normal price of $199.95 as well, yet it's discount price is $69.99.

    I purchased M5 on 4/24 which I'm pretty sure was release day.

    He'll be 60 days old in a couple of days :-)

    Which is probably why the sale was going to end the 25 ... I don't think they will add something in between now.

    If we go with the newsletter Sale End Date of 6/25, the M5 bundles will be 62 days old.

    I would be surprised if DO items are included in the sale manually. I would expect the store to include a DO in the sale automatically based on it's calculated "aging" date of 60 days or older. I guess we'll wait and see.

    Welp, I'll throw in another sales angle for Cameron to consider...

    People get Paid on Fridays for the most part... In my situation, every other Friday. I cannot tell you how many sales I missed out on because of a sale starting on the week I do not get paid and ending on the Wednesday or Thursday of the week I get a check on.

    Welp, all this does is entices me not to buy at all. Afterall, If I can't take advantage of a sale, why bother?

    And I'm not the only one.

    Oh well, more money I am not spending due to poor execution.

    Hm... Where is that sale? I cannot find it, and when I click on the links in my mail, I just get the storefront.

    My recommendations:
    Tamesis Bundle (or either of its constituent parts): http://www.daz3d.com/shop/tamesis-bundle/ (note that a search in the store won't find this item...you have to use the link or Google it) beautiful character for V4 or Genesis, with three skin textures included in the bundle, and tons of eye and makeup options
    Genesis Starter Bundle http://www.daz3d.com/shop/genesis-starter-bundle/ (or, if you can afford it, the V5 Pro Suite, which includes that bundle, is a great deal right now; and the V4 and M4 pro suites, too, for that matter: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/catalogsearch/result/?q=pro+suite&x=0&y=0)
    Fantasy Starter Bundle: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/fantasy-starter-bundle/ one character, five outfits, two sets, plus two hairstyles, and Feathered Wings...all for under $25 right now for PC members
    Gen 3 Iconic Shapes: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/gen-3-iconic-shapes-for-genesis/ the shapes themselves are nice to add to the genepool, and the ability to use Gen 3 clothes on Genesis is valuable even if you don't own much (you can get a lot of Gen 3 clothes for free or cheap).
    3D Starter Pack: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/3d-starter-pack/ still a good deal, even though some of the items are available for free now
    V5 Elite Valerie: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/v5-elite-skin-texture-valerie/ or any of the Elite Skin Textures, for that matter. I don't own this, but it's a great deal: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/photo-realism-bundle/
    I would add M5 Pro Bundle and Supersuit stuff, but they're too new for this sale...


    Things I'm considering getting: Taiga, Creature Creator Bundle, Dinosaur Bundle, Dragon Lord Horse Armor....


    @Herakleia: it's all DAZ 3D Originals older than 60 days, I believe.

    I too hope they extend the sale I would love to buy Carrara Which I can't afford at it's regular price. And my payday isn't until Thursday :down: I would also like to get the V4 and M4 morphs while they are on sale and V5 I would add M5 to that as well if it showed up at the sale price later in the week.
