Hi there, a query to the admins. Is there any reason why PC products are not being discounted? I thought they were DAZ 3D products too but they are all showing as full price. I am not a PC member and would have expected to be able to purchase these products at the discounted price.

It’s the middle of winter down under, we’re freezing our appendages off, and DAZ runs a “Beat the Heat” sale. Cruel. Very Cruel.

“Freezing our appendages off” is definitely relative. I cordially invite you to visit Fargo, North Dakota or Edmonton, Alberta in December for a powerful object lesson… cheese

Winter in Australia is quite nice in my opinion.

Greetings,
The Kids 4 Morphs++ since I can’t use GenX to convert any of the good kid figures over w/o it, and I want to render my family using Genesis, and some of those kid figures come really close.


I suppose I should look into buying a bundle and getting the K4 and Mark I purchased a few days ago refunded…  It’s significantly cheaper with the sale.

I’m taking the advantage of this sale to get animals; I’m a newb, so I don’t have lots of them, so best to get the cream of the crop while I’m at it!

African Elephant (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/african-elephant) so I can take advantage of my free mammoth morph.
Silverkey3D’s Bat (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/bat-silverkey3d) so I can blow it up in size and make Dire Bats!
Cold Blooded (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/cold-blooded)—and possibly Morphing Python (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/morphing-python), depending on how my request for consultation turns out, if the Morphing Python in store has updates vs the free version I already own.
Stag Beetle (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/stag-beetle) because a Giant Stag Beetle is one of those D&D staples.
Silverkey3D’s Monkey (http://www.daz3d.com/shop/silverkey-3d-monkey), because animal familiars are too, and it is so darn cute!

Just a question, why is the Michael 5 3D Model Pro Suite showing a normal price of $199.95 and a discounted price of $139.97? 


Is it not meant to be 65% off?  The Victoria 5 3D Model Pro Suite has a normal price of $199.95 as well, yet it’s discount price is $69.99.

I purchased M5 on 4/24 which I’m pretty sure was release day. 
 
  He’ll be 60 days old in a couple of days grin

Which is probably why the sale was going to end the 25 ... I don’t think they will add something in between now.

If we go with the newsletter Sale End Date of 6/25,  the M5 bundles will be 62 days old. 

I would be surprised if DO items are included in the sale manually.  I would expect the store to include a DO in the sale automatically based on it’s calculated “aging” date of 60 days or older. I guess we’ll wait and see.

Welp, I’ll throw in another sales angle for Cameron to consider…

People get Paid on Fridays for the most part… In my situation, every other Friday. I cannot tell you how many sales I missed out on because of a sale starting on the week I do not get paid and ending on the Wednesday or Thursday of the week I get a check on.

Welp, all this does is entices me not to buy at all. Afterall, If I can’t take advantage of a sale, why bother?

And I’m not the only one.

Oh well, more money I am not spending due to poor execution.

Hm… Where is that sale? I cannot find it, and when I click on the links in my mail, I just get the storefront.

My recommendations:
Tamesis Bundle (or either of its constituent parts): http://www.daz3d.com/shop/tamesis-bundle/ (note that a search in the store won’t find this item…you have to use the link or Google it) beautiful character for V4 or Genesis, with three skin textures included in the bundle, and tons of eye and makeup options
Genesis Starter Bundle http://www.daz3d.com/shop/genesis-starter-bundle/ (or, if you can afford it, the V5 Pro Suite, which includes that bundle, is a great deal right now; and the V4 and M4 pro suites, too, for that matter: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/catalogsearch/result/?q=pro+suite&x=0&y=0)
Fantasy Starter Bundle: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/fantasy-starter-bundle/ one character, five outfits, two sets, plus two hairstyles, and Feathered Wings…all for under $25 right now for PC members
Gen 3 Iconic Shapes: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/gen-3-iconic-shapes-for-genesis/ the shapes themselves are nice to add to the genepool, and the ability to use Gen 3 clothes on Genesis is valuable even if you don’t own much (you can get a lot of Gen 3 clothes for free or cheap).
3D Starter Pack: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/3d-starter-pack/ still a good deal, even though some of the items are available for free now
V5 Elite Valerie: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/v5-elite-skin-texture-valerie/ or any of the Elite Skin Textures, for that matter. I don’t own this, but it’s a great deal: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/photo-realism-bundle/
I would add M5 Pro Bundle and Supersuit stuff, but they’re too new for this sale…


Things I’m considering getting: Taiga, Creature Creator Bundle, Dinosaur Bundle, Dragon Lord Horse Armor….


@Herakleia: it’s all DAZ 3D Originals older than 60 days, I believe.

I too hope they extend the sale I would love to buy Carrara Which I can’t afford at it’s regular price. And my payday isn’t until Thursday downer  I would also like to get the V4 and M4 morphs while they are on sale and V5 I would add M5 to that as well if it showed up at the sale price later in the week.
