Zondervan is selling ebook versions (Kindle) of all volumes of Word Biblical Commentaries for $7.99 each. Will Logos match the price?

I doubt it, but they often participate when it's a Bible software sale, where the prices are higher - best ever I believe was $9.99 per volume.

Logos doesn't really ever "price match." For Faithlife eBooks (formerly Vyrso), they try to "extend offers from publishers" whenever they can do so. Those are "bare bones" ebooks, similar to Kindle. For "Logos edition" resources, it used to be that publisher sales had no effect on pricing. In more recent years there have been some exceptions to that general rule... I think mostly with Zondervan titles (for which pricing is typically more finicky and sales happen less frequently). 

I agree, it isn't likely to happen... especially at the $7.99 price.

I don't know about everyone else, but in my opinion, using commentaries in the e-book format is too difficult to navigate. My first choice is Logos, second choice is a book to hold in hand, and third choice is never a clunky e-book. What say you?

It depends on the type of commentary. If it's a technical one, agree entirely. If however an expository commentary, I will buy in ebook format if the price is compelling.

I have picked up a few theology books in Kindle because they were absolutely too cheap to pass up. I have consistently been dissatisfied with trying to use them for any serious study. I imagine trying to use a commentary in that format would be even worse. The premium prices of Logos books sometimes stretch me uncomfortably, but they are vastly preferable to work with.

In the last couple of years, the complete WBC has been on sale for Logos a few times with heavy discounts. I think I got my set for $350 with a coupon, a stunning price; I never thought I'd be able to afford it. I seriously recommend waiting until that happens again.
