You click on the sale category and the products that show up don’t have the 50% discount applied.  All the $1.99 products in the 50% off category still show up as $1.99.  How are we suppose to know what’s on sale?  And what the correct discount is?

I click on one of the artists in the 50% discount list - Oskarsson - for instance, and nothing is discounted.

I click on the Daz Originals category and nothing is discounted, click on an individual product, and it shows the old 40% discount.

Yeah, I have a feeling it will take some time to get fixed. Luckily it is all weekend, so there should be time for them to fix it before the sale time ends. There have been lots of problems like this so far, but Daz has fixed the problems and discounted correctly when given time or asked.

Annoying, and rather unprofessional, but at least they are making good in the end, in my experience.

$1.99 items do not get discounted when DAZ Originals are on sale, only during special PC sales.

I’ve flagged up to DAZ 3D that not everything is showing the discounts.

If the $1.99 items are not discounted, they shouldn’t show up when you click the 50% discount category.  The $1.99 items have been discounted at times in the past, because I have a number of them showing in my order history where I paid $0.99.

You click on the 50% category for Environments & Props and you get 2533 items show up!  Who’s going to look through 2500 products when most of them are $1.99 and not on sale for 50% off.

They currently don’t have a separate category for DAZ Originals excluding PC items unfortunately—it would make things a lot less confusing.

The banner headline says 50% OFF ALL DAZ ORIGINALS *Excluces items newer than 60 days old.

It doesn’t say “excludes $1.99 items”.

Ok, I get it.  The problems are disappearing.  I guess it’s the nature of the internet that when something changes on a website, the changes don’t show up at exactly the same moment on every computer in the world.  There’s a lag time.

Platinum Club items are only less than $1.99 when there is a specific sale for them, usually a theme-based sale (like sci-fi items, vehicles, etc). It has been that way as long as anyone can remember.

I notice that very many of the 50% DAZ Originals sale items are in fact at 70%, or in many cases 85% off. So I reckon it’s probably worth ploughing through the pages if there are bargains like that to be had! Let’s hope it’s not an error, or if it is, doesn’t get fixed!

when it says “50% off ENTIRE PA STORES” it doesn’t really mean that apparently.  I was doubly depressed hoping to get Maraieh’s morphing business suit on sale, but it either isn’t old enough yet (thought i thought it’s been out more than a few months now????) or just isn’t on sale for some reason.

And I at first thought ALL the PAs were on sale but that was too good to be true.  Was hoping to see Addy in there or optitex ....

Just the pa’s listed on the sale page….

Iirc the business suit would be too recent to qualify.

And an annoying thing - the categories, at least the “Toons” and “Creatures”, are promoted with products that were not included in these categories. No Sam and Sadie in Toons, no Anubis in Creatures.

Yeah, I was hoping for Optitex too. However, SimonWM and Khory are both included in the sale, which means half of the Optitex items are as well, except for his earliest releases. I have found a couple that were in my wish list. And many more besides. DAZ still know how to repeatedly suck every last spare cent out of me. And several that really shouldn’t be spare…..

And following the chaos theme as in the thread header, I also notice that the Black Friday deals have over ridden the Black November Fast Grab prices, which is mildly irritating. But with so many other good bargains spread, albeit apparently quite randomly, throughout the store, it would be churlish to complain!
