Francis Chan's "Multiply" is free for a number of e-readers today only.  Because this book is available from LOGOS, I will not post a link.

Blessings,
Floyd

Do you have some inside information? How can you be so certain that they can't/won't? Sometimes when they see our threads requesting that they match free or discounted offers from the publisher, they do.

Logos doesn't have a "price matching" program. They extend publisher offers in Vyrso when they are able to. Note: Those are PUBLISHER extended offers. Logos resources, on the other hand, are "value added" and come under different licensing agreements. As a fairly strong rule, you don't ever see these offers extended in Logos.

I know.

That's what I thought this thread was a request for. You seemed so firm in your answer without explaining why you knew you could say that.

That's what was missing in your first reply and explains it all. I didn't realize that Multiply was a Logos edition and not a Vyrso one. Many of Chan's other books are Vyrso titles, so I made the mistaken assumption this one was too.

Most of the time when people ask Logos for a freebie that is offered by publishers elsewhere it's on a Vyrso title. When Logos overlooks a publisher offer of a freebie, and users point it out on the Vyrso forum, as has happened a couple of times in the past, Logos has responded by offering it for free as well. It's not "price matching" -- just passing along the publisher's special deal. I thought that might be possible here too, but since it's a Logos edition, clearly that won't be happening.

I assumed something too. Surprise

I assumed it was clear (but after re-reading, I know it was not) when Floyd said it was available from LOGOS. I knew him to mean "Logos edition" because 1) I own the resource and know its history and 2) I know that Floyd knows the drill. Smile

And we know why we should never assume things, because it makes an a** out of u and me. Both guilty as charged. Smile

I assumed he meant LOGOS the company, which puts out the Vyrso titles. Only he can tell us what he was really thinking, but if he knows the drill then he probably shouldn't have been asking for this. [EDIT: Oops, I just realized it wasn't he who was asking for it.]

Bump - my only thought in posting this was to make others aware of the free book.  Because LOGOS and/or Vyrso offered the book, but not the deal, I posted information without giving a specific link.  Sorry for stirring up such a hoopla in the process.

Blessings,
Floyd

Thank you, Floyd, for bringing this publisher offer to our attention. CoolYes

To say logos NEVER price matches, that isn't true. Although they rarely do, it never hurts to ask.

I'm not Robert, but here are a couple of examples:

Thank you to the Vyrso team for correcting this situation. Big Smile

I see it now (https://vyrso.com/product/39860).  Thank you, Logos.

And a most striking example, straight from a Logos employee:

Paul-C:

It looks like Crossway have a sale on a few resources for Father's Day:

http://www.gospelebooks.net/discount-christian-ebooks/crossways-fathers-day-grab-bag.html?wt=2

Vyrso, could you please try and match these prices? Thanks.

Hi Paul! These prices are matched for the ones we have available on Vyrso–you can find them here: http://vyrso.com/products/search?Genre=Best+Deals&Publisher=Crossway&start=&sort=pricelo. Let me know if you have any more questions!

I seem to recall other instances where Brian was able to go to the publisher and quickly negotiate so that Vyrso could offer the same discount offered on Amazon (or close).

I am unfamiliar with the first one. The second set doesn't count. Logos didn't offer those before, and the regular price is free.

I thought we had already figured this out Rosie... we are talking about price matching* LOGOS EDITION RESOURCES. I am unaware of this ever happening.

Sorry. Once again I thought he was talking about Logos the company. I'll need to resist my urge to pipe up in every active thread. I'm clearly procrastinating on getting something else done. Embarrassed

On the other hand, Rosie, you are keeping the thread alive allowing more readers to stumble across this offer.  Thanks for helping me - even you are finding it difficult to communicate with alabama24.

Blessings,
Floyd
