I see that individual products from Scott Hahn are 35% off for the March Madness sale. But I would really like to purchase his 27 volume Product Bundle. Since I have many of his books already my dynamic price for the bundle is $116.

If I access the web site, not logged in, the 27 product bundle shows at full price of $300 and the 35% discount is not applied to the bundle.
Also his 2 volume "The Lamb’s Supper and Hail, Holy Queen" bundle is not 35% off.
The Select Works of Scott Hahn (2 vols.) no 35% discount. Same thing with his other small collections.
The individual "Letter and Spirit" books are listed with 35% off, but the 8 volume collection is not.

So how can I tell if my dynamic price includes the 35% off?

If you hover over the tiny gray icon (circled question mark) to the left of "dynamic sale price" you should get a breakdown of which discounts are being applied.

Generally, you can tell if there is a sale in addition to dynamic pricing by hovering the cursor over the little question mark to the right of where it says "Dynamic Sale Price" (right above the price). You could also try viewing the product page while not logger in to see if the product is on sale and at what percent off.

However, bundles are not part of the March Madness sales. The March Madness "How It Works" page says:

"Collections or bundles will not be included in the sale; however, individual titles in a collection may be included."

So you probably won't get a better price from the bundle unless the author makes it to the end. I have the Hahn collection already, but am in the same boat with Kreeft. I don't yet have his books in Logos, but the bundle is still a better deal as he didn't make it very far in the tournament. Actually, if I go for the Modern Catholic Authors bundle, the Kreeft books are discounted even more.

Thank you both for the responses.

To answer the question posed in the thread title, No.

In past March Madness sales the discount was only applied to individual titles. Bundles and collections were excluded.

Even more strange is occasionally a March madness price is far more than the typical Logos price. Surgeon's Treasury of David for example. This item is normally $59.99 for a 6 volume set. Buying them separately is $218.94 so there can never really be any savings there until you get to a point around 80% off.
