The advertised discount is 40 % and the final total with PC discount is $52.48; PC coupon applies correctly as well.

That’s what I paid yesterday anyway, so nothing seems to have changed?

The free Equestrian Props you’d get if you bought the pro bundle before the 4th wasn’t actually free though - it added 62 cents to my cart. Still some bugs in the store calculations it seems.

Don’t want to waste mine and supports time on complaining for that amount, but I hope DAZ are being notified about these errors…

It is not working. For example I selected the following items listed in DAZ Originals:
http://www.daz3d.com/shop/daz-originals/casual-short-dress
http://www.daz3d.com/shop/casual-afternoon-for-genesis
http://www.daz3d.com/shop/daz-originals/moonshine-s-diner
http://www.daz3d.com/shop/daz-originals/moonshine-s-diner-interior-i
http://www.daz3d.com/shop/daz-originals/diner-tableware

The full price is $81.75, I am PC member, so, I expect “72% off each” as promoted, that should be 81.75x0.28=22.89
But on checkout I have:
Subtotal $54.11
Discount -$5.40
Tax $0.00
Grand Total $48.71
It is only 40% off. Looks like someone at DAZ is fooling customers with false offer.

PS: As I see no “Diner” items was discounted. Why?

Yes something is wrong with the discounts, they were working earlier on. I was getting 50% off the casuals dress having bought the santa thingie yesterday, now I no longer am.

Although those items that you picked appeared during the pc sale. The diner and interior were pc crossover items and the tableware was the freebie, so that might be what is throwing off the discounts in your case. However, this has come up before so they should have fixed it by now.

No, seems, none even tried scratch the back. To me, it is usual behaviour for recent DAZ stuff. But the need to determine what additional not listed conditions should be taken into account on a particular DAZ sale event makes me really hate the lack of bad words in English. It cannot express what I really think.
It is really hard to pick up decent items among the amateurish trash sold at DAZ since they launched Genesis. No claims to Genesis but the rest is mostly rubbish. And such a mess in store calculations gives no positive points to store (and stuff) reputation.

Discounts are working again for me, so maybe they were updating the store.

No, those exact items are still not discounted. I’ve just checked.

Some other DO products (including one or two bundles) aren’t being fully discounted either. Fair enough, but I wish we had access to the ‘rules’ for these sales…

Like most DO sales promotions, “excludes free items, $1.99 items, and items newer than 60 days”. The Diner stuff is inside the 60-day window.

Which would be a lot easier to parse if items’ release dates were included on the store pages.

Or entire new subcategory like “DO fitting current sale”.

It seems that you can see the new item if you look in the Snowball Savings category:

http://www.daz3d.com/shop/sales-promotions

Nevertheless I noticed that the “new” items do not appear under

http://www.daz3d.com/shop/new-releases

But I have not found out an easy way to find the matching snowball items. The texture sets are not listed in any of those two categories.

- - -

Examples:

Yesterday there was only Santa Baby showing but not the Santa Baby Textures to be found in new releases.

Today it seems even worse:

The “Casual Short Dress” does not show up under new releases and a product preview of the fitting “Summer Casual Dress Textures” only appears on the side bar when the Casual Short Dress page is viewed. To make things worse if one actually enters “Summer Casual Dress Textures” in the search bar one will not find them because the actual product has the the word “Summer” not included. It´s just “Casual Dress Textures”.

There is a huge banner advertising the the Textures on the Casual Short Dress page. Why not make that clickable so one can find the item in question faster?

I can understand the the sales team likes to try out new ways to promote things. And it is truely amazing how there is one sale after the other. But aren´t things a little bit more complicated than they should be at the moment?

Would it not be the easiest way for the customer to just be able to check the New Releases to see whats new instead of searching around in different store tabs?

Or am I missing the point here and the items in question are not new at all but just on sale?

I meant the next new item, but you’re right, that’s not quite ideal…
