Actually you forgot the phrase “for a limited time”. If that’s part of the poster, then people that are quick enough to take advantage of the offer gets the discount. Evidently the demand was such that the offer ran it’s course and the discount is removed. If you see something that says “free for a limited time”, grab it as soon as you can… if you wait, you run the risk of not getting it.
That was what the poster on the restaurant said too, ‘for a limited time’. Just nobody had expected that they would end the action on dinners before dinnertime.
Let us be serious. DAZ launches a tool to enable users to load their proprietary binary format content in Poser. The tool uses features available only in a Poer update. Consequently users have first to download and install the update, then download and install the tool, get it to work. The tool opens new possibilities, opportunities, but users have to find the pros and cons and make up their mind how they can use it. They have to fiind out how they can use content they already own, maybe re-organize their Runtimes. To pull them forward, DAZ waves a carrot in front of their eyes: Content is 30% off! By the time users have decided and are ready to order, the offer is stopped. It is stopped inside the store, but the posters on the storefront remain. In other words, the poster is still up, but visitors in the restaurant see the full pricing only at the time they are seaed and have the menu in their hands.
In the mean while it becomes apparent that the tool has bugs, an update is launched.
Now you finally understand?
