The snowball savings is not working at all for me. It first didn’t give discount for baby elephant, but was for meerkat, trying to remove items and put them back in to see if I could get working resulted in it not working for meerkat either. I’ve tried totally emptying cart, refreshing, logging out and back in with empty cart and resubmitting items, still no discount. Have also been getting random errors on shop today with pages not found, sql error pages, posts not found in forum.

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

Works okay for me. Sure you got the current Snowball item in the cart? I’ve experienced a couple of times that my browser kept showing an older item (which no longer gives any discount) until I cleared the page cache (in IE ctrl+F5)..

I’ve noticed an issue with the first item not being discounted. I noticed this on two different computers. In the end I gave up and just bought the first item to maintain the discount.

Yea, you’re right, if there’s only one item there’s no discount. But with two both seems to be discounted.

It was working at one point, it just quit working. Yes, have used the snowball savings before so am familiar with how it ‘should work.’ Have also done the make sure logged in, remove/add, refresh screen, make sure items are actually current items etc etc… but ty, appreciate you’re trying.

The one thing was, it quit working right after I tried adding the Genesis Teen Starter bundle, then removing it. Everything I’ve tried since has not worked. I saw something referring to a glitch price regarding this set after and I believe it may have something to do with that, i.e. I might have happened to be updating my cart when DAZ was updating something on the store which might have fragged my ability to get the snowball savings at all.

...being released only a day ago the teen bundles are under the 60 day limit so they don’t work.

They did for a while yesterday but as I understand it was one of those “Site Glitch” affairs.


Just experimented with today’s Snowball item and a couple random older DO items and yep it don’t work.  Pity as I actually like the Snowball item for today.

Update:

Did some more playing around and it seems it doesn’t want to recognise the second product for the first discount tier.  Couldn’t get any better than about 48% savings with the daily plus 4 qualifying products when I should have been at 72%.  Made sure everything was at the “newest”, released no later than this past September.

Site’s acting strange as well for I have to refresh the screen each time I add a new item to see it reflected in my cart total.

I’d rather have a blue sky above me than a blue screen in front of me.

Haven’t the companion texture sets for the day’s item usually worked for the discount?  Today’s doesn’t.

They work when you have more than one additional item. I think it’s the glitch that is making the snowball not work with the first item.

I can’t get the snowball savings to work either.  In another thread, someone put the daily product, then the teen bundle pro, and some other new genesis items in there and said his total only came to $32 and change.  I put the same items in my cart and there is no discount at all.  My total comes to $85 which is no discount at all.
.
Today I tried it again with the DM item and 4 other DO items and still no discount.  It’s just not working.  Tried logging out and back in, closing FF and reopening, emptying cache, etc.  Nothing is working with the snowball savings.
.
What’s the deal? (other than no deal for me)

The teenbundle working with the snowball discount was a glitch, which Daz fixed. The snowball will only work with DO items that are non pc and more than 60 days old. The only exception to this is the textures sets. What did you have in your basket?

Well, I guess I have sour grapes because I didn’t get my purchase in while the “glitch” was in effect, and I am not interested in older items.  I had the teen pro bundle with the faces of teens, pink ink textures, and a couple others, but none of them are eligible for discount now that the “glitch” isn’t in effect anymore, so I emptied my cart and won’t be buying any of it.  Oh well.

...that would have been me, however by the time I went to submit the order, I the total price for the bundle changed to 76$.

Apparently as I understand, the “offer” was caused by a glitch in the store site software (similar to what happened in the PC sale) that was corrected but not after a number of people were able to take advantage of it (alas myself not included).

At fist I had thought it to be the special deal for PC members that I heard about before the release but then, like all intro deals, it shouldn’t of ended until 11:59 “Daz Time” (which is part of why I hesitated as I saw others getting an even better price and thought I still had time to work out a better deal).

Ended up biting the bullet and paying the 55$ for the Pro Bundle (as it had several items I wanted that if purchased separately along with the either the Starter Bundle or base characters would have ended up costing even more).

I just tested this without purchasing anything and I was able to add the Snowball item plus some older A3 items to my cart and get the discount.
