Love the artist promo

Hi all!

I have a little problem with the new “Love the artist” promo :
http://www.daz3d.com/sales-promotions

I’d like to know if you read the offer like I do. It says “buy any 4items and save 50%”. I was believing that you could mix items from the different artists, 4 of any one, and you would save 50%. Obviously, it doesn’t work like that (or I wouldn’t be posting wink )

If I put 2 Stonemason items and 2 Daz Originals in my cart, I only get the 30% saving from Stonemason items. Daz O are not counted (they are already at 30% as I’m a PC member)

Any idea about it?

Items you get discounted as a result of being a Premium member afaik don’t stack with other offers. This goes double for any PC items at $1.99.

Is this true? The PC discount used to stack with others, but it’s been a while.

I tried with two DAZ Originals and didn’t get a discount. I guess they forgot to mention the usual “newer than 60 days” exception.

Not working for me either ... I picked 1 item each from 4 of the vendors…. zero discount… but they were all fairly new so I think you have to find older items even though it doesn’t state that. I will wait till later and see if they fix it or at least be clearer about the offer.

I have no idea about the question by the OP, but, if you are a PC Member, and a DAZ Original item is at an itroductory price of 30% off, you DEFINITELY get the PC 30% discount AS WELL.  Not added together (60%), but taken off one after the other which is the normal way in any business dealings.

PC items are already at full discount for PC members and cost $1.99 each, no matter what the base price was.  You do not get another 30% off them as well, and never did at any time.

The honeycomb design and the fact that the first word on the page is “combine” certainly would imply that this is a mix ‘n’ match promotion. Maybe this is another example of Daz’s traditional smart-looking-but-ambiguously-worded promo? smile

Hopefully someone representing Daz will clarify before the weekend.

I’ve double checked both email and webpage, and it’s not mentioned at all. I don’t think it’s very legal to apply promo limits without mentioning them (at least it’s illegal in France, I don’t how how it’s done in USA)

Well, let’s keep fingers crossed and wait for an official word… :(

I am quite certain that the 60 day rule applies to this as well, although it is not stated on the email I got.

I have never seen a sale with PA items that did not inlcude this rule.  I put 2 stonemason items, and 2 DAZ Original itmes in my cart, and I got the 50% discount.  It has nothing at all to do with the PC 30% discount which would apply anyway, but only on the DAZ Originals part of the order.

This 60 day rule is usually shown on the promo page, but in this case it has been missed out I think, but we will have to wait and see.

It does look as if the problem is either items already on sale or the 60 day cut off - I put one item from each vendor, otherwise non-discounted, in my cart and got the 50% when I went to my full cart view.

It’s 5am and it’s working, at least for me (and it seems like a few other posters throughout other threads.)  I mixed and matched and got 50%

Here’s a tip..  If you’re only interested in 1 or 2 of the eligible PA or DO items, put the older FREE items from 3D Universe, Daz & Dzfire (eg.Emotiguy)  and they count towards the 4 to get 50% off! Just did it myself to re-purchase Daz Horse 2 Pro bundle for just a little over $20 (yes, the current promo discounts stack together & the 50% of for This promo is calculated last at the shopping cart.
So any DO’s currently at 65% off for PC members are halved at checkout on the already discounted price
