Also, did anyone get the Platea bundle with the proper 50% discount?

.
I tried buying Platea bundle, but it wouldn’t give me the proper 50% discount, so because of that Jack T. lost a sale.
.
Anyone interested in getting that great Platea bundle can pick it up today, as Jack Tomalin’s store is on sale today.
.
I can find a bunch of stuff I want from Jack, but now I’m broke, so…

It’s a good example.  I would love to buy one of Jack’s higher end sets.  But adding another 7$ makes me pause and in the end just empty my cart.

March Madness is SUCh a bust this year!! I have 2 March madness items in my cart, one from Jack Tomalin and one of the new outfits.  And its NOT taking off 50%. the price is at least 11 dollars over.  This is absolutely ridiculous.  And you wonder why I haven’t bought anything from March madness this year??? Sheesh.

...odd, I just picked up Daydream, Punked for Daydream and Stalker Girl Hair and all the discounts applied.  Then I used my March PC coupon and got them all for just over 9$.


Oh and Pure Hair Blockhead, isn’t that already part of the Pro Bundle?

I suspect that the Platea bundle may be a problem as it is now one of the items that get’s you an extra 10%, along with the A5 Pro Bundle and Garibaldi Express.

But it wasn’t in the extra-10%-items list on 2nd March, when we bought it. Can anyone remember when it was added? This section seems to have been dropped from the newsletters after the 2nd.

Aaand the shopping cart can’t count again. The three items in today’s top category are being overcharged. First the list prices:

Tholopolim $34.95
Haley $14.95
Hayden $11.95

I’m a PC member, so the kids are 30% cheaper as DAZ Originals:

Tholopolim $34.95
Haley $10.47
Hayden $8.37

Total $53.79

50% discount for buying more than one of them: $26.90

10% extra off for buying Aiko5: $24.21

So why does my cart give a subtotal of $40.80, discount of $14.57 and total of $26.23 ?

Because for some reason, Haley isn’t getting the DAZ O discount.  Looks like it’s time for those of us who bought her to file support tickets.

I’m not sure if that’s it — I did try working it out like that, and came up with $27 and a few cents. Which doesn’t match any of the numbers we’ve come up with tonight.

It’s like I said upthread, the cart just plain can’t count.  <sigh>

Try that calculation again.  I’m pretty sure you left out a step somewhere.  Note that Hayden does get the proper discount.

Haley base price: 14.95
14.95 - 55% = 6.73
14.95 - 30% - 55% = 4.71
Difference: 2.02, which is exactly the difference between your cart price and your calculated price.

This screwy system is about to cost another sale.

I saw Dimension Theory’s HDR Pro Urban Recreation Set…
http://www.daz3d.com/march-madness/urban-recreation
27.97 at 30% or 19.98 at 50% or 15.98 at 60%

I went to the March Madness Category and got Jack’s Platea:Epic Bundle…
http://www.daz3d.com/march-madness/platea-epic-bundle
34.97 at 30% or 24.98 at 50% or 19.98 at 60%

I threw both into the cart and the total came up as $52.95!

When it should have at LEAST been $44.96 (that’s at 50%)
and when you count the extra 10% off because of the Platea Bundle it should have been $35.96

I don’t have much money.
I’m not sure whether I should just place the order and then put in a support ticket or what?

This sale sucks.

No it shouldn’t - for one thing, 50% discount and then 10% discount is a total of 55% rather than 60& but in this case the Platea bundle is in the More Madness category, along with Aiko 5 and Garibaldi - if you haven’t bought any of them yet one of them will get you the extra 10%, but you get that only once. So you have only the one MM item in the cart and therefore get only the basic 30%.

It’s in the “All March Madness Items” category. It was also advertised as a normal March Madness item at release.

Yes, and it’s also in the More madness category on the MM promotions page - which is how it’s behaving. I have sent a howler to DAZ via express owl.

Hold on a second… aren’t we supposed to get the extra 10% (assuming we’ve bought one of the qualifying goodies) whenever we have a cartful that qualifies for MM discounts? Where did this “only once” come from?

I think he’s just referring to the fact that Aiko/Garibaldi/Platea discounts don’t stack.
