Will these black november sales products be added at the same time each day?  If so, that rather locks those of us who are at work ... and restricted from checking the DAZ Store (or in the wrong timezones) ... out of the lowest prices?

I’ve always hated the one day only sales, but these ‘lowest price ever for a few hours’ sales are even worse.

But ... they do save me money!  Since I rarely am able to take advantage of those sales.

So, I suppose I should thank marketing for coming up with another sales idea that keeps me to my budget.  See?  I can look on the bright side!  I don’t just complain :wink:

Yep… you will want to be checking early and often…  Daily at least.

Well I just got my new Hyper suit in there 50% off for one day but don’t know when, so people will have to keep an eye one the sales page or they miss out !!!

It’s not only those that work - it’s those in the “wrong” timezone too.  I thought Daz has found out that 24 hour sales are ok, that shorter sales are leaving behind unhappy customers.

The last time they tried it was a couple years ago, wasn’t it?  I think some back-room DAZzlers are hoping that in that time most of the “troublesome” customers have given up in disgust and left, while new customers who aren’t familiar with the issues will think this is “exciting and fun!”  That the problems are intrinsic to the basic concept and structure of this kind of sale, and that new customers are capable of seeing them without being alerted by the old-fogey gadflies?  Probably hasn’t occurred to whoever decided to start this up again.

Speaking of old-fogey gadflies, I’d call 24-hour sales “barely tolerable” rather than “okay”.

I am actually looking forward to this sale. I enjoyed last months sale… And am now getting enough content to make my hobby more fun and it allows me to learn more things as well…

Yeah we all complain sometimes (me included) but for the most part we are all happy with DAZ or we wouldn’t still be here…

Admittedly I wont have any money for a couple of day so that kinda limits my buying but I am ok with that too I am still trying to get through all the content I Bought last month cool grin

I haven’t even attempted to install most of the stuff I got last month. Or a large percentage of the stuff from before that.

I’m really far behind, sometimes it takes a year before I actually use something in a render for the first time. But I do like to use my monthly $6 allotment for the heck of it. Haven’t been tempted yet this month.

I usually just download the files and store it on an external drive until I need it for something but I do tend to forget I have things so I Am trying to get organized now to an extent.. I haven’t found anything to use mine on yet this month either.

I am somewhat organized. I have folders that make sense to me…I tend to put content in folders by the month i purchased it because I used to wait till end of month and install all at once. Now I only install stuff I need for a project. Between projects I look for stuff to install but I’m starting to realize some stuff wasn’t really a needed purchase so I’m a lot more conservative now with my spending.

When Daz did that Buy More save more promo I bought a ton of stuff and installed it all so it’s not like I don’t have plenty of stuff to work with. The stuff I bought after that including stuff from the PA sale and PC stale are waiting to get some action.

Yes.  When discussing what would make this Black November Sale really special for PC members, it was pointed out how much that 40% was liked in the PC anniversary sale, so put that at the top of the list for this promotion.  We can’t do it all the time, but we are running it through the end of the month.

scullygirl818 - 13 November 2012 11:36 PM

Is the 40 percent off for all DAZ items all month? I wasn’t sure if it was supposed to be something specific because it just links to become a member. I am thinking of joining again and if everything is that much less it, now would be a good time to do it.

We will try to keep deals up for at least 24 hours so that no matter when they launch, if you are checking each day, you will be able to get it at the best price.  I can’t guarantee that EVERY deal will be like this, but for this sale we will certainly try to accommodate those who can only check once a day.

That’s a Good Idea on the folders, I am hoping to curb my spending this month.. And buy only useful things…

I like the fact that the freebie stuff had a few male character I wanted. Sadly, didn’t have enough DAZ original stuff to buy them, but it was cool to see they were available.

Huh?  That went up last night — like, over twelve hours ago now.

Strange I had one of Orion’s outfits in my wishlist and it was still showing only 40% off in mine this morning after a refresh but now its on sale with the rest of Orion’s stuff

Given the new store’s frequent caching issues I’ve gotten into the habit of doing a hard-refresh (hold down the shift key while clicking the Refresh button) when checking for updates.  I bought Sylvanna last night (somewhere over 12 hours ago now), at which point I saw Orion1167’s store at 50-70% off (just checked, still do).

Is that it for today, or should we be checking back for a blitz-bundle?

sadly, nothing new that I can see yet, even with a hard refresh. I like Sylvanna’s boots. Thanks to everyone for posting about Orion’s store.
