I’d like to take advantage of these sales, if I can. I don’t have a lot of spending money at the moment. Here are my goals:
1. To get the “DAZ Rocks” $10 discount on an order of $50 or more
2. To get Knight Champion free with my purchase of Blenworth
3. To pick up a couple of PA items totaling about $20
4. To spend no more than $30-$50 overall


Now, I don’t expect that it’s possible to fulfill all of these goals at once, but in trying, I’ve noticed some strange things that led to some questions (prices listed are PC prices, where applicable):


Scenario 1: Blenworth ($16.77), Knight Champion for M4 ($12.48), Ashley for M5 ($14.36), Genesis Eyebrows ($6.99) go in the cart. Total adds to more than $50, but only $12.48 is taken off. I think this is correct; Knight Champion should be free, but I have less than $50 of Daz Original items in the cart, so no $10 discount.


Scenario 2: OK, so let’s add some more stuff to the cart from Scenario 1…Taiga for Genesis ($5.94), Aged for V4/M4 ($6.99), Glyn Hair ($8.74). Now we should be over $50 in Daz Originals, but the discount is only $18.83…not $22.48 ($12.48+$10). Hmm.


Scenario 3: So maybe the PA items are messing things up. Let’s toss Ashley and Genesis Eyebrows out. No change…discount is still $18.83. Pretty sure this is wrong…unless the “DAZ Rocks” and Blenworth promotions are not intended to work together…


Scenario 4: Instead, let’s put the PA items back in and take Blenworth and Knight Champion out of the cart. The cart now contains Taiga, Aged, Glyn Hair, Ashley, and Genesis Eyebrows. Let’s put the Genesis Creature Creator Bundle in also ($10.49). That brings the subtotal to $53.47. $10 discount does apply…even though some of the items are PA items. Now I’m more confused. Should this be possible? Given that it is, if I complete this purchase, would the PA’s get their due, or would their earnings be reduced by some fraction of $10?

Not really - I just know I bought things 5/5/12, which was probably the first day.

The last Dream Home sale was a Platinum Club only “vote for the group” thing.  I believe it lasted for two weeks after the voting.  Since we can’t check the old “Member’s” area it will be difficult to know for sure.


I purchased on 5/13/2012.

For those of you who (are about to rock *cough*) don’t mind buying the Imagine FX Issue of August 2012… go, do it. There’s a nice little coupon in it that will make you happy if you’re intending to buy M5 ... and there’s Michael 4 on the DVD too… if you don’t have him in your runtime already… wink

For those who asked, PC items are included. I had about $20 of other DAZ originals in my cart, padded it out with PC items in my wishlist, and got the full $10 discount.

Thanks for that Information, Kerya. I should add that the Imagine-FX coupon is not only for M5 Base but for all the bundles (starter, pro, suite) too. I’m not intending to put one magazine over the other… I just hope it helps people save money smile

Seems there’s a Problem with the Code… appears to be not valid…

Sorry if it’s a stupid question, but for how long would the ImagineFX coupon be valid?

I wish I could tell you, but it’s not stated anywhere in the magazine… it has 0612 in the code, but that doesnt have to mean that it only lasts till end of june… that would be a bit sad *g*

Well, clearly, there are some unspoken rules in effect here because $50 worth of ANY DAZ Originals does not earn the $10 discount.

I added Blenworth (DAZ Original)
I added B25 Royal Prince (price deducted from cart)
Then, I added 34 DAZ Original PC Products, which are on sale for $0.99.
Total came to $50 and some odd change. 
I went through checkout, but there was no $10 discount listed on the Review Order page.

According to the post, all of these products qualify. 

If they don’t, I’ll just empty the cart and save even more money by skipping these sales.  You do NOT want to know how long it took to find DAZ Original/PC Products that fit MY criteria!  (I hadn’t previously purchased the product, it would work in Poser, and it was something I wanted.)

We know how much you love saving, so here comes another sale.

Get $10 off any DAZ Originals purchase over $50.  This includes ALL DAZ Original Products throughout our store.  Combine this offer with the DAZ Beat the Heat Sale for MASSIVE savings.  Just add $50 worth of DAZ Originals to your cart and $10 will automatically be taken out during checkout. 
This sale won’t last long, so make your way to the DAZ Store now!

Sale Ends July 3, 2012.

Thanks… I hope it does last longer than that, I won’t be able to buy anything until Monday… Is the magazine a nice read by itself?
