Clicked on the “announcement” when I saw it (here in the “commons”) and I get:

The following errors were encountered
You are not authorized to view this forum

I’ve been considering re-joining the PC club but i have held off for the anniversary month and now I can’t even see what the announcement says?  I’ve really been on the fence about it considering all of the problems people have been having with the pc club lately but seeing what the offer is for restarting/renewal might just tip the balance in favor of going ahead and doing it…

Some people were getting that, but I think it should be working now. If you still get the same message, could you try logging out and back in again and see if that helps?

Nope still getting the same thing even after logging out & back in again. 

I did catch the pc anniversary banner and was able to look at that page but even so I still remain on the fence at the moment.  I was a pc member for several years so I do know the value of it but all the issues people have had really has me nervous about joining back up right now.  I remember getting several products as a bonus for signing up in the past and was kind of hoping they had continued that.

Right now the top thing for me is the gen3 iconic shapes bundle for genesis and doing the math it looks like it will probably be a wash between just buying it outright vs. joining pc and buying it.  Guess I’m going to have to think on that a bit more.

you’re not the only one!!
between this and the whole lack of subsciption issue, and the kind of depressing announcement not a big loss though.

If you’re the lucky winners, cool.
If not, well…. too bad.

Meh.

Can someone please clarify a few things with me regarding the PC Membership Anniversary Promotion?

#1 - Regarding *THIS*:
10% Increase in PC discount
from 30% to 40%

AND *THIS*:
DAZ Originals Sales
50% off DAZ Originals for a limited time

What is the total discount on Daz Originals?  Can someone please verify if they are actually giving BOTH?


#2 - Regarding *THIS*:
$10 in coupons
$6 + $4 Coupons for DAZ Originals
$6 = 10-12PlatClub, $4 = PC-ANN1VERS@RY4

AND *THIS*:
Get $10.00 off
Coupon good for $10 off DAZ Originals
$10 = PC-S@VINGS-10

Are they offering 3 coupons which cannot be combined and each one has to be applied to an individual order totaling $20 coupons?


#3 - Regarding *THIS*:
Members Choice
Choose your favorites to get 50% off vote now

Wasn’t the “Members Choice” items reduced to $1.99 for PC members and not just 50% off?

Also can someone please publish the current list as with me currently NOT being a PC member, the “Vote Now” link doesnt work for me.

Please advise and thanks in advance!

The Member’s Choice sale winners were $1.88 in 2010 (8th anniv),  $1.99 in 2011, and probably $1.99 in the years before 2010.


The 50% off is combined with existing 40%-discounted price = 70%      (See later in the thread for how the math works).

(Chohole noted this while I was off checking my memory on the pricing, which I’ve edited in below)

And then Chohole posted something which showed me boo boos I’ve now corrected.

*sigh* I’m not going to keep noting every edit.


Out of the ten products listed, please vote once for the one you’d most like to see on sale. The five products with the most votes will then be put on sale for 50% off!

Voting ends on Thursday Oct 4 and we’ll put the items on sale Friday.

Your choices are:

1. Trey for M4
2. Arkangel
3. Doctor Bundle
4. Freya’s Courage Realm
5. Battle Maiden
6. M4 Leather Jacket
7. Pyrit Hair
8. Journeyer Scout for M4
9. Reby Sky Elite Hair
10. Blood Bound

It’s going to be 50% off the current price so an overall discount of 70% for Platinum Club members.

I’ve been considering re-joining the PC club but i have held off for the anniversary month and now I can’t even see what the announcement says?  I’ve really been on the fence about it considering all of the problems people have been having with the pc club lately but seeing what the offer is for restarting/renewal might just tip the balance in favor of going ahead and doing it…

For what it’s worth I’m in the exact same boat. I’m a former PC member considering joining again but have been reluctant/hesitant because of all the problems I have heard. Much of that was back when the new store first went live and everything was screwing up though, so I figured much of it might be fixed now and plus the problems seemed more intermittent then universal. So the deal maker/breaker was going to be the membership price. If it was discounted then I’d go ahead but if it wasn’t then I wouldn’t.

In my case though I was able to see the promo and at least at this point they’re offering no discount. It looks like they are at first glance because they show the annual membership as $69 in big numbers but in smaller darker text in the graphic it says Plus $30 Activation so it’s currently $99 which is full price.

I guess they’re not interested in getting new members because as it currently is there is no additional incentive (compared to any time other then the PC Anniversary) for new people to join. I mean sure once you join there are deals and in general it’s a nice promo as it usually is but in a failing economy it’s alot to ask people to pay almost $100 for a year or almost $30 for a month first before they can access the other deals. I dunno maybe Daz thinks most people have hundreds of dollars to blow on non essentials just a few months before the big holiday season? They don’t of course, well except the top 2% of the country, but hey, why let a silly thing like reality get in the way?

So no voting for 1.99 items this year?  I’m very disappointed.  And what a small list to choose from….last year’s list had about a hundred items to choose from, with more added each week to replace those that won.

If this is all there is, count me out.  I’ll spend my money on other things (like a Droid X).

I’m dissapointed, too. That was the best sale of the year, for me.

My budget is relieved, but…

Already have the coupon degrade, now this is still less value for my membership.
(The coupon bit is not their fault, and they hope to restore it, someday s…, if I recall. But from the customer POV, it is still a big dent in the value).

The remaining perks are probably enough to keep me, but I’ve got some weighing to do, before I renew.

And what a small list to choose from….last year’s list had about a hundred items to choose from, with more added each week to replace those that won.

If this is all there is, count me out.  I’ll spend my money on other things (like a Droid X).

I don’t blame you. I wouldn’t join for that.

I may pick up something in the next 3 votes, if they come up with anything I care about.

No-Genesis PC Members will be pleased to see a number non-Genesis items, but displeased that they can’t get the whole mess for $79.60.
(In real life, they’d skip what they have or don’t want, but that’d be the max a person could get).

*Shakes the calculator* Dang it! No matter what I do I cannot seem to get 50% and 30% to add up to 70%!

50% off an item that is discount by 40% at present does appear to become 70% off the original price to me

I quoted from a post by DAZ_Ryan. I guess he maybe got muddled and said 30% which is normal PC discount, but at the moment DO’s are 40% discount.

Hi MJ, I just processed an order…it wouldn’t allow me to put two coupons against the order. so I used the standard pc monthly coupon. I’m assuming I can use the $4 one on another order.

I’m unsure whether the $10 coupon is valid yet as it’s in the things to come column. Can anyone verify if it’s useable yet and if so is it a once off item?

The 30% is 40% for October, so .5 * .6 = .3
