Dear Faithlife

Please make the daily homepage deal easier to find for those of us who haven't upgraded to L8. I'm one of those who checks every day on the homepage and on Twitter for the 2 daily deals and I certainly as a result buy books that weren't in my wishlist. I know you want to promote L8 but I suspect you're missing out on other sales. Since the homepage has been "highjacked" by the L8 sales pitch it has been hard to track down the daily deal. Some days I succeed through detective work, but other days I'm left wondering if I've missed it or whether it was one of the publisher sale items and I couldn't spot it because it was on sale that month anyway.  

I have called into the office twice and I'm still not sure what your plan is for those of us who haven't upgraded. (From what I understand those who have upgraded can see the daily deal on the homepage.)

I second this request. It's been hard for me to find anything on Logos website as the Logos 8 upgrade offers seem to dominate. If it wasn't for those in the forums posting links to things like Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, I would have never seen them or known how to access them because Logos 8 upgrade offers are the only thing I see on the Logos homepage. I even tried clearing my cookies and cache thinking maybe it was just stuck, but it seems like this is by design.

Also, as an L8 user I don't get the daily deal when I access the homepage on mobile. Only when I visit Logos on a desktop computer. This would be nice to fix too.

When you go to the Logos store within the mobile app (on Android devices!) you do get to see the daily deal.

on my iPhone, I scroll to the bottom of the Logos page and select Full Site.  Then I can see the daily deal.

Have you upgraded to L8?

Yes I have.    Sorry, the Full Site tip will only help those that have gone to L8. 

I agree they are losing sales by blocking their non-L8 page for folks that have not purchased L8

Can someone post today's daily homepage deal, as the Best Deals section is a mess and I can't see a book at 49% off that might be the daily deal. Many thanks.

Today's homepage deal is not obvious on the Best Deals link. Does this mean it's something that was already on sale in another promotion?

Thanks Graham. I'm so used to the daily deal being 48% off that I overlooked that one. Thanks for your help. Hopefully Faithlife will make the daily deal easier to find for those who haven't purchased L8.

Bump. I've twice spoken to Faithlife staff via web chat and I understood non L8 buyers would get the same homepage as L8 after the original L8 sales push was over. I was lead to believe this would be around a month. 3 months on non L8 users still have a sub-standard homepage experience. In particular, Faithlife are making it harder for us to view the daily deal and so potentially miss out on impulse purchases. I have found a work around, but I'd rather have the old homepage that Kyle proudly announced on these forums in2018.

I'm not sure who told you what, but the "release window" goes on for many months. The release of new base packages / libraries is the primary source of income for FL. At a minimum, I would expect the window to go to the end of January. Several more months, however, would not be unexpected.

For non-L8 purchasers we have our homepage back and easy access to the daily homepage deal. Plus we can see special offers easily like this Anchor Commentary sale:
