...change is not always good. “March Sadness” has turned into a “BOGO-like” affair. Used to be every featured store or item was a flat 50% off. Now you need at least two items to get the half price discount (which apparently is not working no doubt due to another Magento “glitch”).
Being one who is on a tight budget (especially after a month that is two workdays short) I have to be selective about what I purchase and sometimes can/will only select one item from a daily featured store here and there (I really have to want it) . It used to be a different single store was priced at 50% each day (and what happened to Stonemason this year, his store usually kicks this thing off?) which was so nice and simple.
Now several stores are featured, but at only a 30% discount (unless again, one purchases additional items)
...and to reinforce the “BOGO” feel, if one had purchased one of the two items listed in the newsletter (AIko5 or Gerabalid’s Hair plugin) before the sale, they receive and additional 10% (and no extra savings for PC members like in the past, thankfully I only paid 29$ for my renewal this year).
Really miss the vouchers this year too.
Placed a lot stuff on my wishlist over the last several months just in preparation for this sale. Will probably just stay there until I can afford them should my financial straits ever improve.
Once again, changes make shopping here a less enjoyable experience.
