On Challies website today, he mentions that his commentary set is supposed to be 60% off.  When I look at the set, all I see is my discount for the products that I own.  Is the sale missing?

Thank you.  I was thinking though that $399 was the normal price to begin with.  I wonder what the regular price is.  I have more than half of it so all it shows for me is 92% off

The quoted regular price is just over $1,000 - which matches the 60% discount statement

That is my mistake... I wasn't clear enough.  Yes you are correct Graham that the 60% matches but Logos does that for a lot of their bundled collections.  They show the regular price if you were to add each up each individually and then the bundled price.  What I meant to say was that the challis collection (at least to my recollection) was always offered at the $399 price point.  What's the point of bundling everything and just charging the normal price?  It seemed weird to me that Challies would point out the 60% off if it had always been 60% off.  Who knows but thank you for your responses

You're right, the bundle price has been $399.00 from the start, as per this Tim Challies blog post
