http://blog.logos.com/2013/08/free-book-20-gift-certificate-and-special-discounts-in-the-500k-celebration/

We recently announced that the Logos forums passed both the 100,000-user and the 500,000-comment thresholds. That’s a big deal—those numbers represent the worldwide community that’s sprung up around the importance of Bible study and the value of Logos Bible Software. Since then, we’ve been thinking of a unique way to celebrate.

How about a free book?

For the next five days, you can get the Understanding the Bible Commentary: Mark absolutely free! Just use coupon code 500K through the end of the day Tuesday, August 20, and you’ll get this respected commentary without spending a cent.

The Understanding the Bible Commentary: Mark transports modern readers back to the days of Mark’s original audience and helps us understand and apply his unique writings. Normally this commentary would cost you $14.95, but with coupon code 500K you can get it free today!

Let’s add some special deals!

Yes, a free commentary helps show our appreciation, but it just doesn’t seem like enough. So we’re discounting the following books and collections through September 2:

The Works of John Owen (24 vols.)
Reg: $399.95   $269.95 with coupon code JOWEN2013 

The United Bible Societies’ New Testament Handbook Series (20 vols.)
Reg: $399.95   $249.95 with coupon code UNITEDNT2013

Ben Witherington III Collection (5 vols.)

The Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, Abridged in One Volume

Reg: $59.95   $49.95 with coupon code ABRIDGED2013

Free $20 gift certificate

You’re getting big discounts and an awesome free book—but there’s even more. We’re rewarding everyone who helps us get to know them better with a special one-time-use gift certificate for $20.

All you need to do to get your $20 gift certificate1 is complete the Logos user survey2 and fill out your Faithlife profile. Your entire Faithlife profile must be filled out. You can omit the Organization, Organization URL, Website, Twitter, and LinkedIn fields if not applicable by September 2.

These are limited-time offers!

The Understanding the Bible Commentary: Mark is free only through the end of day on August 20. Use coupon code 500K now to get yours.

The remaining discounts and the special gift certificate offer expire at midnight, September 2—take advantage of them today!

 

  1. Your gift certificate will be delivered mid-September via email. Certificate is good for one purchase, and expires October 15, 2013. []
  2. You can stop and start the survey at any time. The survey must be completed for you to be eligible for the certificate. []

I must say I'm pretty stoked about this, though I am confused about how detailed our Faithlife profile has to be....

Ditto. I just went and "completed" it. It said 50% complete before, now it doesn't give a number. I only wonder because I don't have a Twitter or Linked-In page, so I can't get it to 100% if they're going to count those. There didn't seem to be a way to indicate n/a except leave them blank, so I assume that's sufficient.

I had the same issue William. I believe that if it doesn't give a percentage that it is 100% complete. It also says on the page "Your entire Faithlife profile must be filled out. You can omit the Organization, Organization URL, Website, Twitter, and LinkedIn fields if not applicable by September 2."

Right, that's the part that confused me, how much else do we have to fill out?  I don't really have an about me or anything.

I updated my Faithlife profile, but it shows as only 40% complete.  Hmm

I assumed that I needed to fill out "about me," so I did. I just added little things like how many kids I have and what authors I like.

I'm concerned that the requirements for this offer are stricter than the Profile page requires for it reporting itself as complete.  My profile was deemed complete, but I had a lot more blank fields than the ones listed above.  For example, phone was blank, and it's not listed above.  So I filled in everything except "Organization, Organization URL, Website, Twitter, and LinkedIn" to be sure.

I hope we don't have disappointed people who thought their profile was done because the website said so, but not enough for the promotion.

For anyone who's just completed the profile, try closing down your internet and restarting.  That should help Faithlife recognise the update.  Completed profiles show no %

It worked! Thank you!  Big Smile

I already know what I'm going to spend my $20 credit on.

Well, thank you Logos! That's very generous of you!

 Now about the Faithlife profile.  I filled everything out, but adjusted the settings of who can see what.  I hope none of that affects whether we receive the certificate or not. 

Thanks again!

When I log in to mine it now just says "Edit Profile" it doesn't give me a percentage.  I guess it must be complete.  I do agree it should say "100%" or something to let you know it's been fully completed with the exceptions they mentioned.  Who's going to check what's applicable or not when they decide whether you qualify for the gift certificate or not? That's another question...hmmm...I'm sure they'll do the right thing in the end.

I filled out everything. I even included my linked in account and it refuses to recognize it as correct. It will not go above ninety percent for some reason. I have no problem with the promotion and with doing what is requested but it is frustrating when things don't work correctly.

o.k. I figured it out. You have to use compete sentences when telling about yourself. Make sure to use periods. Once I did that in the bio everything was fine.
