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.

well darn it. See I missed the intro sale and i was hoping it’d have been enough time by now…

ah well. Spent too much this month anyway.

Sorry….wish I could help.

well gotta admit, that the “50% off PA Artist!” promo image for Marieah is the morning business suit stuff, it’s a bit misleading because you’d think it’d be on sale since it’s picture is under that title.  Guess it’s because its showing “newest” and not really on sale.

at least there is some nice stuff by Simon and Khory in the sale! I missed that somehow. smile Thanks for pointing that out, Dr. Stupid :D

Yeah, I think it was really shady to show non-sale items as part of the promo images.

Too bad everything on my wishlist is for nonparticipating PA Artists.
*sad face*

But…Mankahoo (Ali) does have a nice new ponytail hair out. Off to buy.

GRUMBLE!

In the time it took to SUCCESSFULLY checkout, the Medieval Male Peasant Clothing for Genesis went from 85% off to 70% off.  Putting it in a price category too high for me to purchase for Genesis clothing.  (Both the Male and Female Peasant Clothing were 85% off and are now 70% off.)

Yeah, yeah.  I know.  70% off is still a deal.  But Genesis in Poser still doesn’t work well, so until it does, I’m just not investing much at all in Genesis clothing that isn’t a PC $1.99 product.

But really, it’s the irritation of a product being 85% off for the 2 hours I spent shopping (it’s close enough to the end of the month I need to spend that PC DO Only coupon), and then in the time it took to checkout (what with having to rerun through the checkout process (twice) because of errors), the price changed.

Well ... it’s back in my wishlist now.

While the actual sale seems to be working fine, it seems like several of Damsel1 and Tony Puryear’s stuff lost their promo images on several products.  Granted, I heard that several products across the site changeover lost promos so this might simply make it more noticeable as opposed to directly being the cause.

The whole thing with Maraieh’s business suit seems odd since it came out mid summer.  I can see if there were some restrictions on bundles perhaps but I would think that adding it to the promo meant it was intended for the sale.

It think her business suit came out during the PA sale, so it may be a few days short of 60 days since it was released. Maybe it will go on sale over the weekend.

I thought it was part of the pa sale also….

Yesterday the Toon Alien was $1.79 (for PC members), now today it’s suddenly $2.99.

I noticed that it’s made by 3DUniverse and their store was 40% off yesterday, but not today, and the price difference is actually 40%, so that might be the explanation.

It is however a DAZ item so the 3DUniverse discount shouldn’t affect the price, should it?

If I bought 30.00 worth of stuff yesterday and I’m getting ready to purchase more today. Will I still get the free character freebie that is offered if I spend 50.00 even though part was yesterday and the rest today?


Thanks!

Not according to the text on the freebie page:

“The total of your cart must be $50 or more, then add Joanie to the same order to get her for free.”

Whether you can get it anyway by contacting support I can’t say though…

I wish the store would stop logging me out.

Well I see Hiro 5 is 70% off. I thought it was too new for that.

I have to say it is really annoying when it says “50% off the entire catalog of all these artists” when clearly their entire catalogs are not even on sale. Why lie in a sale promotion?
