I had it in my cart, and was notified that the price went up:

Acts: An Exegetical Commentary (2 vols.)

Get 35% off Logos March Madness round 2 authors!

Price has changed from $62.39.

The new price in my cart is $72.79, a 35% savings off what I suspect is a new "regular" price $111.98.

I don't know if this is common practice for Logos to adjust their prices on books that aren't new, and I'm slightly disappointed that it happened in the middle of the March Madness discount (some people probably wouldn't notice it). I'm sure there is a reason for the increase, but wanted to point it out in case it makes a difference to the purchase decision for someone, or might spur you to perhaps inquire about getting the old previous price.

Speak to the sales team. I expect they will do the right thing.

Thanks for pointing this out. I put this (and a number of other things) in my wishlist, hoping to sort it all out after MM is finalized.

To give you perspective, this was $72 in pre-pub.

Book prices keep going up and sadly Logos isn't immune to rising prices. 

At least with something like Keener, the sheer size and depth of his work makes for a good deal.

Yeah I thought this was lower than the pre-pub, so I bought it at the $62. I did see it mysteriously was raised to $72.  Glad I got it at $62.

Man alive! Soon, commentaries will sell for $200 apiece! And to think that it was possible, a while ago to get 49 volumes of WBC for $399. I am flabbergasted by how much some volumes sell for these days. 

Here is another pricey 2 volumes set:

Or worse, for just 1 volume:

We should not forget the mini-series:

Obviously, volumes like these can only be accessible to the haves and not to the have-nots.

How did you get such a great price on the Lexham Genesis commentary :P

A lot of work goes into writing a good commentary. Several years of labor!

A lot of work + a very niche market = $$$

This issue came up with the Baker commentary which some (me) had in their wish list and it went up when it was noticed that the MM discount made it less than prepub. Maybe they are trying to condition us to impulse buy these resources so we do not miss error pricing that change a day later. Nah that is way to cynical even for me though I do intend to buy whatever shows up and not add to my wish list anymore.
