Is there any chance that when we buy a punch-item bundle that contains other punch-item products that we would get multiple punches?

Today I got the Rock and Grass bundle (I pretty much buy AoA’s and DT’s shaders automatically grin ). But I get just 1 punch.  Depends on how much one wants punches ... spend almost $3 more to get 2 punches and higher discount on an as-yet-unseen product.

I’ll look into it.  I’m not promising anything, and in fact I don’t even know whether or not it is possible with the system, but I’m more than happy to bring it up.

**Edit** unfortunately the way the sale and the punch system is set up giving two punches for an item isn’t feasible at this time.  We’d essentially have to reset everything up (not an easy task).  So for this sale at least, bundles will still give you only one punch.

Cypherfox has a good thread going on whether it makes more sense to buy the bundle or the items individually: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/41514/

It’s not that bad…see my post on the math.  The bundle is worth it, though, because it adds props and scenes that aren’t in the individual pieces.  Plus as Richard pointed out, my math didn’t take into account the PC discount+new release discount, so in the end unless you’re going to buy something like 12 punch items afterwards that are worth at least $10, it’s not worth it to buy them separately.

...and yes, I think about this stuff.  At 1am.  Which is why my math was off. wink

oh, I agree, the bundle’s a decent deal.  I’m just basically greedy (thrifty? maybe my Scottish ancestry is showing) ... I want to save money AND get lots of punches (hmmm ... that doesn’t sound healthy tongue laugh )—and I know that there’s a 90% probability that I’ll be buying the A6 pro bundle no matter what I buy or don’t buy in the countdown sale—never enough money in the monthly CGI budget wink

I missed the Moongate freebie from yesterday.  Will the freebies ever cycle again during this promotion or do I need to log in daily?

You will need to login daily.  The freebies will only be available for one day.

An easy solution: add the page to your homepage settings as another tab, it will open every time you launch your browser.

DAZ_Jared, I cannot wait for tomorrow! cool grin Please take your time, but do answer my question on how much time I have to buy everything I want from Aave Nainen. Thanks in advance.

I can’t answer that question.  All I can say is that you should buy what you want soon, since the Aave Nainen promotion is not set to last very long.

Speaking of the Aave Nainen promotion, does anyone not think the main advert’s horribly easy to get completely confused about? “Buy the new Genesis 2 Jeans & Shirt” it says. Except when you read the new item’s store page, the name is actually “Everyday Wardrobe for Genesis 2 Female(s) Jeans and Shirt”. I looked at the Aave Nainen page and my eyes went right past “Everyday Wardrobe” because the whole name is too long to fit under the thumbnail — the “and Shirt” just isn’t there.

Surely I wasn’t the only one not seeing the qualifying item for this sale and wondering when it would be released? Getting the name right is important, especially when we don’t — and can’t — see the name we’ve been told to look for.

Another personal thought (sorry if I repeat myself…): there are definitely too many items in the promotion that can only be used in DS.

It means that the ones who do not use DS for the renders have less chance to get their 25 punches since there is less choice for them.

Once again, no polemic here, just a personal thought.

Less choice = less purchases = less money for the merchants

Unless it would not matter of course.

What about the Bundle purchases (such as Advanced Wood and Metal Shaders Bundle and Rock & Grass Bundle).  These are not being counted as 2 punches.  Any way to correct that as technically two new punch-worthy products are being purchased.

Thanks,

DAZ_jared looked into that somewhere in the thread and said that at the moment there isn’t a viable way to set that up currently..he did say they’ll look at it for the future.

This came up (I think in another thread) - unfortunately it’s a no go with the store software ... on the other hand you get some props with the bundle you can’t get otherwise.

Question:  From the top banner:

Earn up to 100% off Premier Bundles & 50% off the soon to release Aiko 6!

I don’t see any details about what Premier Bundles actually are, is there any information about that? (unless of course that is what Dark Sisterhood or Gated Courtyard is about, but those don’t seem like bundles)

The premier bundles are Dark Sisterhood and Gated Courtyard.  They will be released in June (as the sales and promo says).  You won’t get 100% off both of them, you will only get 100% off of one or the other. (Provided you get 25 punches).
