To Gabe Martini & Michael Locatell,

How can I apply my academic discount? Because I have portfolio + other bundles and resources ..and the price still a bit high.

I called CS couple times the other day, and they don't know anything about academic discount on the reformed bundle. Can you help me please?

Same here - Sales seems to know little about whether the academic discount applies. I would have already bought it if this question could be answered.

I didn't get anything from sales about academic discounts either. No academic discount, no bundle for me.

I'm fairly sure the academic discount comes off automatically. Eg for me it looked like with academic pricing the package would be ~$1500 (same as regular Platinum) which came down to ~$800 with dynamic pricing. Agree with you that it still seems a bit much, but I think the issue is with dynamic pricing, not academic discount.

ie if you search for reformed platinum it will show you the academic price, and then if you click on it you will see the dynamic pricing on top of that.

Got the Reformed Platinum Bundle for $315.24, then deleted about $400 worth of prepubs and cps, then removed about $700 to $800 worth of products from my wishlist that came in this bundle. It's almost as if Logos Bible Software paid me to get this product. lol

In Christ,

Matt

So here's the deal with discounts on all base packages (both the generic and Reformed base packages).

There are two discount "tracks" that may apply: either 1) your role discount (e.g. academic or faculty role) or 2) dynamic pricing and any promotional discount. Whatever discount is greater, that's what you'll get. We are working to make sure all of that is displayed clearly on the product pages, but we will definitely give you the best possible price.

Let me know if you guys have any other questions about that. I will try to coordinate with customer service and sales to make sure that is clearly communicated.

Thanks for all your hard work on this Christian. I will find it extremely helpful when a 'new to you' comparison is provided so that I can make an informed decision on a particular base package. (A couple of forum participants provided a very helpful chart comparing the packages themselves.)

Any idea when this will be available?

You are very welcome! Glad to be of service. As for timing on the dynamic comparison chart, hopefully in a matter of weeks. In the meantime, you can call us toll free at 888-875-9491 and we will immediately email you a list of all the titles that would be new to you. Hope that helps!

so that's basically if I have a large amount of resources from Portfolio, I would get dynamic pricing instead of academic?

So academic is useless if you have large resources?

Basically, you get whichever discount amounts to the largest savings.

Also, the academic discount only applies to first-time base package purchases, not upgrades (or in this case, "lateral-grades").

There's been a lot of misunderstanding about this before (and many of us have been given incorrect info at different times). But I'm 99% sure that dynamic pricing is not considered a discount, and therefore IS given in addition to other discounts. However, you can't get academic discount in conjunction with sale or coupon discounts — in those cases you get the biggest discount, as Christian has said.

You're totally right Mark.

Many times I spoke to CS and they made me feel like as if my dynamic discount IS my discount, but in reality I've already paid for them. That's why I stop calling CS because of their attitude sometimes.

It'd be nice if the discount can stack (dynamic + academic), but I'm sure everyone wouldn't like that.

Mike - email Rusty (dot) Davidson (at) Logos (dot) com - he helped me out. In his off hours, after speaking all morning, and flying all afternoon. How can that level of service be beaten?

I am in the academic program... He got me the reformed platinum package for 755, but alot of the discount was based upon books I already own. Dynamic And/Or academic discount brought it down to about 800, and the 15% discount to promote the new packages brought it down the rest of the way.

Any way if in doubt, email Rusty!
