OKAY…I think I’ve got it figured out. Check it:
You will only receive bulk price reductions based on the number of *true* on-sale items in your cart.
So if you have $250 worth of on sale items and $250 of anything else, you should receive the $250 off.
However, if you have, say, $190 worth of sale items and $400 worth of items not listed as being on sale (even if the non-sale items are listed as DAZ3D artist), you will only receive $190 off your order.
I think that’s what’s happening.
So PA items *can* be included in the final tally, but they’ll only pay you back (up to $250) for items that have a RED TAG on them. That’s why I was able to have nearly $1,000 worth of stuff in my cart and only receiving $160 in credits. But after I deleted things DAZ3D ARTIST *non sale* items and brought in DAZ3D ARTIST RED TAG items, I’ve been able to bring a $510 purchase up to $197 off. Super confusing, but this seems to be the equation.
So anything that is not RED TAG will not be included in your max $250 off—even if it’s a DAZ3D ARTIST item like, say, Dream Home, Major Cache, and the several others that have been listed here.
Basically make sure to fill your cart with all RED TAG items until you reach the amount you want to save ($25 or $250). After that, it looks like you can fill up the remainder with whatever you want.
