Do we know if there will be dynamic pricing?

There is dynamic pricing. My price is $77+.

For me it shows a price of $77 and some change since I have the last book in my library.

I just wish there was a larger discount for those who have bought and still subscribe to  the Bible Study Magazine.

It didn't say but I see it now.

I totally agree with this. I had invested in every issue from the beginning but could not justify not having it digital format.

There is a blog post about this bundle today.  At the end of the copy it states this, "If you’re a current Bible Study Magazine subscriber and are interested in getting this bundle, please call us at 888-875-9491 to get a special discount!"

I called. No special discount, only a dynamic price discount.

I found this a little disappointing. 

Maybe I just need to cancel the magazine and just wait until they publish digitally.  That way I don't pay for content twice.

Ditto, my thought when I saw the offer yesterday

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

I did not subscribe to the print format because I did not want it in print format.  Since the beginning, many of us (perhaps all of us) wondered why this was not digital.  Now it is in digital format but at a price I will not pay.

I tried the magazine for a year, and really liked it, but cancelled after the year because I just don't want to accumulate any more paper magazines. Because most of us probably like to refer and read the articles from some old magazines, there would definitely be a tendency to keep and accumulate them rather than to give or throw away.

I don't see the magazine offered in digital format (at any price) yet, other than a compilation of the articles into a book.

That was my question. Is Bible Study Magazine subscription now available in a digital format? That is why I stopped my subscription to the print, as I wanted it in digital.

I just took a look at the site, and it looks like they are making progress, but it is not there yet IMO. Progress is good. Smile

Super.Tramp:

I applaud Faithlife for (FINALLY!!!) making their paper Bible Study Magazine into digital. However, I am shocked at the price! For this price FineWoodworking offers 1975-2014  - 40 years worth of thousands of articles, charts and building plans, etc.

EDIT: After reading the blog post, it shocks me even more: there are only 38 BSM issues in print (versus 40 years of the FW for example) but only 35% of it made into the digital bundle for $89.95. In other words, you are paying $89.95 for roughly 13.5 issues.

At the end of the day, this is content you cannot get anywhere else, and if you must have it, you'll pay. I think I'll go to my neigborhood dentist office to read the paper version.

I believe Faithlife is really fond of it's content (similar to their guides) and keep on making the mistake of overpricing. Not for me. I just cancelled my Gold upgrade because did not feel (after trying them out) that new features, datasets, etc. were worth the asking price.

We are now seeing the real reason Logos did not want to do a digital subscription for the magazine. They had a vision of how they could get us to pay twice for the content.  Bad form IMHO.

There are the Crossgrade packages if you just want the features and don't want to spend a ton on the main packages.

I was aware of that. I checked the new datasets and don't find them very useful for me.

I might have been tempted if there was more of the actual Bible study content from the magazine. (8 Weeks, Greek, the articles from each issue's Bible theme, etc.)

There's quite an emphasis on interviews and profiles in this bundle. Which are interesting to read (once), but not at this price. To me, the value of a digital BSM is the study resources that I can call up during lesson planning just like all my commentaries and other resources. There's some of that in this bundle, but not enough for me at that price.

I've come to accept that what I need a digital version of BSM for, and what Logos is willing to give, are probably never going to be in sync. My print subscription ends in a few months and auto-renew has already been turned off, so they've lost me. It's simply not efficient for me to be paging through paper back issues to find something useful I need for lesson prep.

Super.Tramp:

Look what I found:

Bible Study Magazine Book Bundle (9 vols.)    $89.95

I just visited the product page and it shows that it's on sale for 50% off = $44.98.

(I also tried it WITHOUT being signed in and the price was the same, so this is NOT any sort of dynamic pricing. They just put it on sale, possibly (likely?) in response to forum feedback.) 

At that price, I picked it up. Thanks Team Logos!

CLARIFICATION: It is apparently 50% off WITH A NEW SUBSCRIPTION. (I had let mine lapse and just renewed it a few days ago.)
