OK, so this was my first year participating in the PC Club sale. I really had no idea what to expect being new to PC club this year, so since we are half way through the month I decided to see just what I’ve spent so far and crunch some numbers to see how much I was saving.
This is everything I bought this month so far (excluding freebies) and what I paid for each item being a member of PC club:

Fairytale Dress for Genesis       $3.08

Tori for V5                             $1.12

Stephanie 5                           $4.93

Riley for Stephanie 5               $2.09

Town and Country for Genesis   $2.16

PC10 Heart Matter Bundle (7)    $4.90

Pure Hair Casual                   $5.41

pwGhost                             $2.45

Pyrit Hair                             $1.99

Unshaven Bundle Genesis (2)  $9.85

Boots and Belt for Supersuit     $1.99

Lisa’s Bot Creepy Trees II         $0.99

Crimson Throneroom             $0.99

Silence                               $0.99

Silence Expans 1 Structural     $0.99

Silence Expans 2 Furnishings   $0.99

Silent Illumination                 $0.99

Victorian House                   $0.99

Victorian Haunted House         $0.99

Night Watcher                     $0.99

PC10 Curious Bundle (7)        $4.90

A Curious Bus                     $0.99

There and About                   $0.99
                                 
TOTAL: $55.76
            -10.00 PC Club coupons = $45.76

If I break the bundles into their individual products— that’s 36 items @ $1.27 per item!!! smile

I was fairly pleased with that ratio, if I can say so myself… thinking myself quite the frugal shopper I decided to see what the prices would be for all this stuff if I had not been a PC member…

I logged myself out and checked each item, using the sale price if there was one to the total.

Brace yourself….

LOL

Glad to hear you nabbed such a bargain - isn’t it such a great feeling to be able to get all that stuff you’d normally not be able to buy all at once? I had a similar ratio last year, with over $700 worth of goodies in the cart, but I couldn’t find my post (like yours) on the old forum.

I liked that the old store showed you usual price as well, so you could gloat while clicking the Place Order button. Sad that they took that away from us grin

But you’re absolutely right - this is what the PC sale is all about. I thought it had all gone to pot up until yesterday, and now I’m convinced to renew my PC again. Things are getting back to normal around here, almost wink

I just realised something else… If I eliminate the $99.99 bundles…

That leaves just 4 items that are currently “on sale”...

Tori for V5                   $9.07
Town and Country for Genesis   $17.47
Pure Hair Casual             $15.37
Pyrit Hair                   $13.97

That totals $55.88 !! big surprise That’s almost EXACTLY the same amount all of it cost me BEFORE I applied the PC Club coupons….

...ponders…

That’s all I would have been able to get.

OK… maybe for you old hats in PC this is not phenomenal…but I’ve been paying those prices for the last 4 years!!! LOL… This is just more awesome than I can put into words… I need a writer to put it more eloquently!! hahahaha!! Wheeeeee!!! smile smile smile

LOL… but what was the ratio per item??? heehee… did you save big, or what?

I hardly ever have $$ to spend… but I saved a little last month and I got a little extra $$ for my b-day ($25.00) just in time for this sale… I just got lucky that the timing worked out so good for me…heehee. Usually… I’m that poor guy in the monopoly game with his pockets turned inside out!! LOL

LOL I am too busy here to do renders….I have one planned for the PC render contest using Supersuit, just got to get started. smile

Like you funds are always short. I was lucky enough to save up some winnings I got for the Dreamlight monthly contests saved up so I did get a few things but the Supersuit I had to pay out of my own pocket and that was a hard thing to do when funds are so tight. But I made the excuse of I haven’t paid for anything for over 3 months so why not treat myself. I am glad I did. I am going to have fun with this Supersuit.

Yep, when you look at the PC savings list, it’s so easy to grossly underestimate how ridiculous these discounts get. Especially when there’s a sale.

And Octobers are beyond all reason.


Don’t overlook the Buy It All Bonus. So far, it ain’t bad (but it’s likely to get tougher). You’d get the V5 Pro bundle, or M5 Pro bundle, (or S5 Pro bundle, I think, my page cuts it off). But you can’t collect until the bundle items are past the 30-day return windows. Here’s the thread, in the Members Only forum. So, if you qualify, at the end of the month, check your chosen bundle for duplicates you’d just bought, while you can return them.

I was pretty broke this year, and spent almost zero, until October. I still haven’t spent that much.

But I renewed for another year. (In spite of the fact they’ve had to give us those crappy ol’ monthly coupons, instead of good ol’ vouchers).

The first half of this month have way more than paid for it.

Yeah, same old, same old. Except for some spectacularly insane discounts on some of the Daz Originals I’ve grabbed the past 2 days.

I’d just, finally, put in for my partial refund for DS4 Pro (they’re right, it’s a surprisingly good one), so I snagged a load of DO’s,

JasmineSkunk - 12 October 2012 11:34 PM

so…anybody got my ratio beat??? heehee! smile


Not me, probably, I bought too many (let me repeat insanely discounted, I’m a good hunter) DO’s for that.

I suspect those 99-centers really put ratios through the roof.

But daaaaang, I think I got a lot closer than I had any right to. cheese


I’m tempted to post the list… but for now, I spent $23.57 the night before the refund, and $21.60 after.

I’m on a zero budget (cars needing new engines = 2, employed people = 0), so I haven’t gotten a lot, but I did have some store credit.  10 items, 2 of which were bundles, so the equivalent of 18 single items, for $26.18 - $10 coupons = $16.18, so net about 90 cents per item.
