2) All the coupons are valid until a few days beyond the end of the final round [I'm guessing this is the most likely scenario]

My recollection of last year is your #2 scenario, Rosie.

Jonathan West:

Haven't seen this question answered although I've seen it asked a few times:

When do the coupons expire?

That info is not posted anywhere in the FAQ. So unless someone here remembers how they did it with March Madness last year, and we want to assume it will be the same way this year, it will require a Logos employee reading this to jump in with an answer.

As for my educated guesses, I can think of three possibilities:

1) Each Round's coupons are only valid for the period of the next round's voting [I'm guessing this is unlikely since they would have told us that already about Round 1's coupons, as they'd be expiring Tuesday]

2) All the coupons are valid until a few days beyond the end of the final round [I'm guessing this is the most likely scenario]

3) All the coupons are valid for longer than what we might expect. Iif "12 Days of Logos" Christmas sale is any precedent, they tend to show grace in abundance; said they would honor each coupon only for the day it came out; but once the end of the 12 Days came, they unlocked all the coupons and said they would honor them all until Christmas, but they ended up honoring them for quite a while after that; I can't remember exactly, but I think it was a week or so, possibly even a few days into January. [This is what I'd hope for, but we can never presume upon grace. That's the whole point of grace. It's undeserved, unexpected, unpromised. Make your plans as if we won't have a grace period, but then be pleasantly surprised if you didn't have money to buy what you wanted by a few days after the sale and then they extend the period of time when you can use the coupons until you are able to.]

Last year began with the option to buy at a discount for a short while.  THEN they amended that to let us buy all things at their respective discounts at the end of the tournament.  That is my recollection anyway.  And that is from a guy who put the ice cream in the cupboard . . . Confused

 

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

I'm sorry. If it's any consolation, I've put the ice cream in the refrigerator a number of times.

Along those lines, how about a six year old feeding the dog a large can of hot chili beans, thinking that all cans were dog food. Smile

Got to feel sorry for the dog over the next 24 hours...Sad

A sign of real "madness" here is that they're charging $60 for Hengel's book on the Septuagint (The Septuagint as Christian Scripture: Its Prehistory and the Problem of Its Canon). Even at the now-25%-discount price of $45, that's still insane, 'cause you can get the paperback from Amazon for $18.99 (which is how/where I got it), retail price $24.99. It's a good book, but $60 or $45?!?! That's March Madness!!

And for whoever cleans up after the dog.

It is increasingly true that some resources cost more in Logos format than in paper format.

Hi All,

Regarding a March Madness title that is really part of a set or a collection, should I buy the one title now, and try to negotiate a lower price for the set later with Logos? What's the best strategy?

Coupon codes will remain open for the whole tournament.

I can understand a little more, but this example/instance (Hengel's book) is ridiculous, IMO.

It depends what you use your library for.

If you are a preacher preparing to do a series on the pastoral epistles you may find it worth your while to purchase the ICC single volume during the sale and hope to someday afford the $1800 set  The sale volume will probably be worth the "double purchase."

If you are a fan of A.T. Robertson or value G.T.Shedd I would recommend going for their whole collections.. The unit pricing on most collections is comparable to the bigger discounts in March Madness.

Some titles are not available for single purchase.
Jensen’s Survey of the Old Testament,  must be purchased here: http://www.logos.com/products/details/4499
A Biblical Critique of Infant Baptism must bge purchased here: http://www.logos.com/products/details/4662
If you want either of these, pass on the sale and by the bundled set.

Dead Sea Scrolls Today - James C. Vanderkam  &  A Quest for Godliness, - J. I. Packer are two titles not offered in bundled collectioins.

When it comes to library building, Collections are the best route. A good salesperson can save you money. They know deals you may miss. Often I can buy a certain scholarly title with a bundle cheaper than buying just the one title. (3 books for less than the one.)

I probably did not tell you anything you already haven't considered.

You are correct here.  I think it is even more special that it is promised to us!  Such a great gift.

The NIV commentaries are $600 more than the street price of the books.

That's absolutely delightful, Nina. I resemble that remark. :-)   (The obsession, not the hubby bit.)

Not sure if this question has already been asked and answered but anyway ...

When books move from one round to the next, do the votes they have already garnered in the previous round move with them, or do they all start from a clean slate again?

They start from a clean slate again. That was quite evident when I voted in round 2 because I was one of the first few people to vote, and the total counts were way low -- obviously having started back over again at zero -- not cumulative from round 1.

Wow! The time you took to reply to my post was less than the time I needed to start up L4 (which I was really doing in the background).

Kudos! Thanks, Rosie.
