Greetings,
I don’t beat the OP’s percentages, but…

I’ve spent $85.61 this month on 58 items, for an ASP of $1.48.  I’ve gotten $985.10 worth of goods from that.  That’s a 91.31% discount.

If I remove the freebies, and charge the S4 Starter Pack (available for $1.99 until Tuesday!) as a single item, instead of parting it out, that brings it down to 49 items, a $1.75 ASP, $878.50 worth of goods, for a 90.25% discount.

Still rockin’ the discount.  Of course the PC club has been worth it every month I’ve been in it.  It was, however, my first actual purchase at DAZ, because I realized immediately that it was not going to be smart spending money here at full price…

I’ve also had $1000 months…those…I’m not quite so proud of. hmmm  I’ve been trying to keep spending on a leash during the PC sale.

...Jasmine, that is great, I remember such fantastic savings in the past. 

Not been very active this year as most of the DO’s and PC items I need I already have. As I have the Gen3/4 body shapes for Genesis as well as GenerationX, I am pretty much content.  Do have V5 and looking at getting the basic M5 figure but Steph5 doesn’t seem as versatile as her Gen4 twin for my needs.

...also holding out for Thorne’s forthcoming teen character.

Finances have been low, had to pass on a lot in the PA sale.  Not really been picking much up this month either. 

...so far other than freebies, purchased up only 4 items so far this month but did manage to use my monthly PC coupon for a total of just over 5$.

Payday, Monday but have to stretch things as I just renewed my security suite for the next year on top of my wireless service, rent and a week’s worth of transit tickets which sent up a balance alert (something I set on my account so I don’t go overdrawn).  As this may be my last month as PC member (annual membership expires in less than a month four days before the mid month paycheque) I’d like to take advantage of it but will have to be real choosy.

LOL!! That is a rockin’ discount, Cypher!! Wheee!! LOL Was it really your first purchase??? That is BRILLIANT!!!  Wish I had done that! LOL smile

and Mike… that is an amazing steal!! I debated about Keira… You’ll have to let me know what she’s like. smile

Hiya KK!! I’ve been waiting to see Thorne’s new character, too!! smile I’m really looking forward to it! smile I don’t really like the way Steph 5 looks dialed “all-in”, but I am kinda liking the depth she adds to my characters. I’ve been fiddling with her a bit. She has some neat face morphs. I think I kinda like her… smile

(Little dial play… with Stephanie 5 and Victoria 5…no lights… in DS4.5)

I’ve never totaled up the savings from the PC membership. But for all the grousing about the coupons vs. vouchers, and DAZ making it somewhat more difficult to make out like a bandit on the Members’ Choice poll, and the general grumbling of getting less for the same price of membership, as long as the PC keeps turning loose great new releases *every week* that I can pick up for a pittance of the full store price, they’ve got me in the club.

...Jasmine, really nice. 

Just not sure she is worth it for me as none of the three body shapes really work for what I want to do.  They needed to include a “petite” one like Steph4 has.

Funny I actually can get more of a petite look adding in a little V5 to the Stpeh4 Genesis and then reducing the breast size.  Need to figure out how to get GenerationX to work so I can pull in the NPMs.

Nonetheless, I think Leela ver. “G” came out pretty well.  The Princess “hips” morph really helps give her a more petite physique and the head morph gives her a more youthful appearance than just the basic “young” morph.

Granted the basic Steph5 character is only 11$ and I still have the 4$ anniversary coupon. Just that the account balance is really low until Monday.

Yeah, even if you don’t use the coupon, just buying a single $1.99 item, or a regularly priced DO with the 30% discount is enough to break even.

I don’t know about Generation X, so I can’t help, but I think there is a thread going that has answered a bunch of “how to’s” I’ll see if I can dig it up for you… been debating Princess, too…might have to take another look at her…lol My ONE big issue is that Daz has not created a morph set yet to deal with those varying hip issues!! LOL Thorne’s Morphs are awesome… been thinking about the body one…but ....it would ruin my RATIO!!! hahaha!!

And yeah… I got a super deal on some stuff when a bunch of stuff went on “Super Sale” for a few hours. Mike 5 was on for only a few dollars, too! ... but I already had that one.  Not sure why…but shortly after I purchased…I came back to buy something I had considered and passed on only to find the prices had returned to something somewhat more expected…lol I guess I just got in at a really good time!! (lucky me!)

Some of the things I use most often—and like the most are PC items picked up at $2 a pop. Jack Tomalin is why I am wrestling with 3D at all. I wandered in, looked through the PC club collection ad decided I wanted to do something with this stuff. (I think it was the Study which first snagged me.)

...Jasmine, when was that special price offer?  With my budget so tight, I would have loved to pick up Mike5 for a couple bucks. Now he’s back up to 17$.

Yeah, when I got into this years ago I had the same experience.  I remember the total was something like 450 - 500$worth of content and software for abut 38$

Well, My Order history didn’t give a time of sale…just a date, but my confirmation email for the order says:

Your Order #XXXXXXXXXXXX
placed on October 12, 2012 11:28:23 AM MDT (edit: sorry -had the wrong one…lol)

LOL… I think it was early afternoon here at the time (no, guess it was still kinda morning…lol)... but I went for a bite to eat and came back and the prices were changed and people in the MO forum were like, “Crap, I had stuff in my cart, but I missed it!” LOL So, I don’t know when it started, but I know that after I checked out it was only that way for like a minute…lol

...Jasmine, when was that special price offer?

The few crazy discounts went from the wee hours to about half-past Noon, their time. (Some fluctuated).

Swapped discounts started Thursday (58%/70%).


The People, Clothing and Elves categories got mixed with the DSON category, Thursday. Some 70% were priced 58% and vice versa.

Many got fixed Friday, and the 70% categories were left up an extra day, into Saturday.

Early morning brought glitches, and a few preposterous discounts appeared.

Kevin offered congrats to those who benefited, so don’t anyone feel bad.


My only regret is that many character bundles went to a plausible 70%, but that dropped to 58%, early morning (edit: felt early anyway, maybe Noon).
(Many of the items, in those bundles, and a few seemingly-random items, went to those goofy discounts).


I bought a bunch regular-discount stuff that were due to expire with those 1st 3 categories. So it wasn’t just exploitation. But I did pretty well.


That’s another point for PC, is that when there’s an error in the customer’s favor, it’s the often PC members who get the most of it.

And when there’s no error, it’s still sweet.
