I’ve added Aiko 5 to my cart a couple times now but, like Freak 5, I just can’t quite place them in my runtime, so to speak. The base figure is okay and I try to get the best value by doing the Pro bundles but neither one offers enough for me to justify the purchase. The items in both are just a little too cartoony for me and a little too out there (especially that Osaka hair). If I can’t use them for anything right now then I might as well wait. However, if buying Aiko 5 now means significant savings all March long then it could be worth it in the end. Still, I’ll wait a little in case something is officially stated.

I cannot understand why a possible discount on items that you might or might not want, and might or might not be able to afford, would have a deep effect on whether you purchase an item you don’t want.

This is because of the way the promo is worded. It’s too broad. How it reads is that it covers the entire MM sales promo running the entire month. This means the item may provide a bigger savings that would make it worth the purchase on that alone. Knowing whether the base alone or only the bundles will provide these savings would certainly be helpful. You might not get why this is important, but it is for a lot of people with concerns about their budgets, what the products they’ve been looking to buy but feel they are overpriced, and many other reasons.

But, really, the main issue is that the promos, whether this one or some other recent ones, have been too vague of late. That does not help the buying customers make their decision any, and, in fact, just makes them wary and think twice which is contrary to what the marketing strategy is supposed to accomplish which is to entice them to buy.

More things to buy to get Extra savings - Garibaldi is now out.
“Buy today and get extra savings throughout March Madness!”
(Will the extra savings of A5 and Garibaldi add?) LOL

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

I absolutely do not think daz would stack two extra savings on top of march madness.
and i absolutely am sick of vague unworded details and refusing to list sale end dates.

My thinking is they will have a coupon discount for those who have already bought Aiko5 before March Madness….. but will also have the Aiko5 Pro bundle as a buy-it-all prize… so there is an incentive both ways.

Yet another example of an unclear promo. Who actually thinks these work? This is an archaic marketing practice when people were easily enticed by getting something for free. cool hmm

I don’t think it works, that’s why I added the “LOL”.
I bought both, but not for the extra savings.

Oh, no, didn’t mean anything by it. Just responded to there being another promo connected to MM as with the A5 one where the details are sketchy.

I’d like to add my whine to the stack. We seriously need more info.


Thanks to those who got the vague answer we have so far.
.

(Will the extra savings of A5 and Garibaldi add?) LOL

Not necessarily impossible, if there were one coupon for Garibaldi, another for A5, and a third for both.


The savings aren’t likely to apply to PA items, of course, because Daz likes to cap it at 50%.

If they do the DO coupon chain, again… Then to be throughout, each DO coupon, in the chain, would have 4 versions…
(And Magento would have to check if you deserve the version you use, every day, without barfing).


My guess:

Let’s assume “throughout” is unintentionally misleading, because something, in the wording, generally is.

A catchup coupon - works on any day’s DO item(s), without the previous day’s coupon.

Single-use, though. 4 codes: Garibaldi gets you one, A5 gets you one, A5 starter gets you two, A5 Pro gets you three.

I don’t see any marketing that says Garibaldi saves you anything on MM. I see a banner that says save 20% on hair…

EDIT: NVM I see the email now.

Seriously?

Two promos in a row playing the same game. I can’t imagine that this isn’t intentional.

Officially sitting this one out, barring further clarification. Fool me once, shame on me…

Really ridiculous.

is it wrong rolleyes

In the March Madness-es that I’ve been here for… the Daz Original deals were for the items Daz chose each day.

So you might not get any Daz Original hair, from March Madness.


But there are so many Daz Original sales flying at us, you could probably save a lot more than 20% on many/all of their hairs, sometime this year.


Just to mention it - in the March Madness sales that I’ve seen, there were also 1-day sales on a small number of PA items. (Typically new items).

I bought both - because I wanted both ...
Aiko5 because she is cute, Garibaldi because I played with the beta and found it easy to use (and because there is no extra activation).
The March Madness extra savings didn’t make me buy them.
