Just tested it again and it works for me.  Remember it excludes items released in the last 60 days.  When I was checking I accidentally put one in that was about 1 month old.  When I had a DAZ O, 2 stonemason and one Pretty 3d It worked great.

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?

@Nakiloe: Look up the SKU in the product page and then then look up the product readme in the Documentation Center here:
http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/read_me/index/start

The readme seems to have the original release date

Would be cool if the readme was linked from the product page wink

Another reason that I continue to be frustrated and mystified at the way sales and promotions are handled here. Since the 60 day thing seems to be so common, it really needs to be perfectly clear to the customer whether or not a product will be eligible as part of the sale. Is it 60 calendar days? 60 ‘working’ days? Ugh.

Under these conditions, for example, I might want to buy a product today, but it won’t be eligible until Sunday, with no way for me to know. Or maybe it is 60 ‘working’ days…who knows!

I have three DAZ originals in my cart and one Stonemason.  Why am I only getting a $6 discount?

Looks like adventure hero came out on December 24th.

Oh yes I forgot this one… Why should we remember something that has never been said nor in email nor in promo web page?

edit : sorry, it has been added on pictures since this morning mad

It should be a given at this point. Every sale excludes new releases from the last 60 days.

For regular shoppers, yes, I agree - this is common knowledge. I assume a 60 day rule with every promo offer, and don’t really care (for myself) that the sale doesn’t specify it.

But for those who only come onto DAZ when (for example) there’s a way to get Stonemason products at 50% off, they’d only come here once, twice a year. For these people, the terms and conditions should be front and centre every time… or the frustration will continue.

So how, exactly, do people know what has been released in the past 60 days?

And that is a problem I’m hoping they fix sooner rather than later. You don’t really know. To be honest we’ve never known even on the old site. You have to do it by trial and error. But, it is shows in the New Release category then it isn’t 60 days old. As a PA I’d like to see the date of my own released pack so I can have some kind of record of when I release what. I feel you those who can’t figure out what is what. 95% of the time DAZ puts in the newsletter that the discount only applies to packs that are newer than 60 days.

There are items in the store that are not 60 days old (ie. Young Teens 5 items) but DO NOT show in the New Releases section.

Most promos state “excludes items released within 60 days”, however there have been some that say “excludes New Releases” instead (eg. Freak 5, Share the Love), but they go by the 60 day rule instead.

I don’t have a problem with the 60 day rule… what I have a problem with is DAZ continually advertising these promos inconsistently and creating confusion and frustration amongst their members when things don’t work the way they are advertised.
