My price is reading $293 for the set now that dynamic pricing is working. The only pain is that I have to go through all the sets to see what I don't have. I would echo that the "new to me" feature would really help.

my price comes out at $2.25 per volume, which is cheaper than you often get even on community pricing!

For me, that makes this set terrific value for money. If you're hesitating, I would recommend investing the time in doing the maths - it will only take you an hour or so.

That is the way I look at it. Price per volume. It took me an hour and a half to work through the list and it was time well spent.

which is one of the slightly disheartening things about community pricing... at some point a lot of it is going to end up in some kind of package or bundle, as cheap or cheaper than what you pay on CP. I don't know, I haven't done the math, but I think you would have paid less if you bought all of these commentaries in a bundle now instead of buying them individually on CP.

My price is 1200.00 plus change. I am pretty certain that I have spent less than 500.00 on community pricing.

I have :-).

Although $2.25/volume is as cheap as many CP titles, the Classic Commentaries bundles often came in well below that. Several were less than $1/volume. Most were in the $1 to $2 range. The only ones that were more expensive than $2/volume was Chronicles ($20 for 7 vols = $2.86) and Philippians ($40 for 18 vols = $2.22).

In all, a total of 907 Classic Commentaries titles have been published so far, which at Community Pricing prices would have cost you $1,192, or $1.31/volume. (This includes the Minor Prophets collection, which hasn't yet been published.)

Of course, the Complete Classic Commentaries Bundle contains another 600 commentaries in addition to those released in previous Classic Commentaries set. But as 59% of the commentaries were part of the original CP series, that suggests they're now being valued at $2,065 (59% of $3,499.95). By that maths, CP will have saved you about $873 over buying this bundle.

I just copied and pasted my orders page in Word/Excel, and then used Excel's filtered to get rid of everything that wasn't a classic commentary. All the URLs were already there. No more than 5 minutes work Smile.

I missed a lot of CP offers. The price I'm getting is about $1400. I think what I'll do is run down the cost of what I'd still buy and see what that adds up to. I'd really like a new to you on this one. It's a bit daunting for analysis.

I want to mention that the price for this product will be going up to $3,500.00 in the next few weeks. We haven't set a specific date yet on when the price will rise, but it will be going up soon. We wanted to offer a special introductory offer for users who may have missed out on a few of these books while they were on Community Pricing.

Mark is also right that at $2.25, these are comparable to Community Pricing prices. However, most of the books in this particular collection went for around $1 on Community Pricing. So even though this collection is a great deal, Community Pricing prices are better. It's always best to get your bid in early; you'll always get the best deal.

Also, I want to note that this collection contains the Classic Commentaries on the Minor Prophets, which have not yet shipped. When you get this collection, you'll receive the license for the Minor Prophets resources, but the resources themselves will not download until that product ships—likely within the next 2–3 months, but that's still a little tentative.

Do we need to cancel our Pre-Pub order for Minor Prophets after we have purchased the Bundle or will they be canceled automatically?

Will this raise the price of our dynamic pricing quote? Or will it just be reflected in a bigger discount?

After you order the bundle, you will need to cancel your pre-order.

This will raise the price of your dynamic pricing discount. The percentage off will be calculated against a much higher price. Bottom line: the price will go up for everyone soon.

But we got the community pricing for Minor Prophets at £30. If we cancel that, we'll have to repurchase it based on the pre-pub price of $164.48. Granted, we'll get some discount due to dynamic on that but I doubt that it will the price for that item back down to £30.

If you re-bundle before the CP has come through then the dynamic pricing should act as if we have already got the licence for Minor Prophets. Or why not give the option of us paying the £30 now for Minor Prophets and getting a licence ready for when it is released? That way we get an accurate dynamic pricing based on what we actually already have in our libraries or on order.

If you want to wait and take delivery of the Minor Prophets and then upgrade to the Bundle I guess you could do that. Why not just upgrade now? The average price per volume of the bundle is $2.25 (or so) and we are only talking about a 10 volume difference here. I bet your new dynamic pricing will jump a lot more than that.

No. You do not re-purchase it. You get it with the bundle.

That's what I mean: I have to cancel the pre-pub and purchase it at a higher price as part of the bundle.

It should really let me keep the price I already locked in of $30.

It may not be a big deal but I'm struggling to see the value of these works at higher than CP prices.

After breaking the code on sets that are included, I've decided I'm not interested in any of the sets that I didn't buy---even though it'd be only $560+ to acquire the remainder.

Thanks for the opportunity, Logos, even if I chose to let this one go by.

Grace & Peace,

I pulled the trigger at a mighty $117 as there is some stuff that I do not have that looks interesting (Godet and Campbell-Morgan) but nothing is downloading yet, there do appear to be some issues with this set.

I talked to someone at Customer Service. He sent me an Excel spreadsheet of what I did not have but it was largely worthless. "Commentary on 1 Corinthians," "Job," Exposition of Psalms" does not help much. He had no way to include an author.
