Just looked over the opening of the sale. Neat freebies and a glowing progress bar!
The dopamine is flowing.

Greetings,
I like them being full...  Fill, my pretty…FILL!

In other news, I’m betting that the mad nurse G2F and G versions came out on the same day because one was scheduled to be released on the 1st, and the PA sale bonus extra-special awesomesauce ketchup day pushed it over…

p.s. I presume the West Park category and Mega-Pack AddOns categories will have the right links by morning…  http://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/ indeed. wink

Actually not quite.. we had always slated them to be released together as a ‘single’ item smile

Where abouts are those links?

Greetings,
Platinum Club 11th Anniversary - Category Sale: West Park and Category Sale: Mega Pack Add-ons have the wrong links for category items.  Lots of ‘x’s.

Minor, as birthing pangs go. smile

Edit: Actually, the way there is some overlap with regards the power-up points, so check the promotion page. They are showing as Oct 2-10, 8-17, 15-24, 22-31.

However our PC release ‘weeks’ run from Tuesday to Tuesday.

I think some cleanup or clarification needs to be done on the rotating ad thing on the Fast Grab page and the Sales-Promotions page. The rotating ad explicitly says that the PC Mega Pack = 1 Power Up Point at the bottom of that ad, whereas on the sales-promotions page, the silver banner explicitly says that items in the PC Mega Pack do NOT qualify for Power-up points. Judging from what happened when I checked out, I’m guessing the second option, that the Pack does not qualify, is correct.

Also, in the PC Mega Pack, the link to the A.M.S. RT-05 doesn’t work. It’s just the link; if you search for rt-05, the item comes up.

I took it that the PACK itself counted (as 1 points worth), but the individual itesm within the pack did not.

Does the proress bar work for anyone?  I’ve bought nurses uniforms and the two freebies and it stil registers as 0 of 6 products

I was under the impression that the pack wasn’t counted, but I will get this verified and corrected as needs be smile

The progress bar for me looks like it’s increasing - but I’ve got the mega pack, West Park Ailments and just bought 3 PC items, so that’s 5 points, but it still says only 1 of 6 products - so it doesn’t look as though it’s updating properly, unless it’s just taking a bit of time…

What were the 3 other PC items.. the Mad Nurse ones?

There is some confusion over the mega-packs eligibility, so I’m waiting on clarification.

Bother, these kind of promotions really don’t encourage me to buy…. “buy a lot of cheap stuff you probably don’t need or want right now…but its cheap and you can get a mystery surprise! or discounts on things”  that never works for me. If I have money to buy all those things to get enough points, i’d rather put that towards a few products that I absolutely need to use. 

These can be fun games for people with extra funds who don’t mind paying extra to get to the “meat” of the sale/party, but sales like “buy one, get one free (and not from a list of a few things, that you may or may not already own) are a much better incentive for me.  Or last month, when everything was discounted.  if Daz was to have, say, “buy one, get one equal or lesser value” for Daz originals, for example, I’d totally be on that wagon.  or a solid 50% off Daz O’s. I’d be on that wagon too. Or “renew your membership, get a 50% off any cart of Daz O’s.  Things like that. 

Deals like “buy what we tell you to, every day, to get something mystery” doesn’t really appeal.  Nor do many of the coupons lately that say “spend at least $$$ to get coupon for $ off”. 

Last month was awesomeness.  Straight up sale prices, at least if you’re a PC member, slightly more costly to non pc members, and coupons off as well.  Last month was great, best sale of the year so far! Looking forward to more from the PC anniversary but I hope it’s not all dependent on buying PC items.  I get plenty of PC things, and I have several west park things, and i just bought a couple PC items last week. But i get them when i need them, and not a “pay this much to get a PC reward” which is basically what this type of event boils down to.

Still, watching with interest!

So the only items that count as powerup points are the ones listed on the power up page? None of the other pc items count?
