The 1,100 dollars it shows I have towards the dynamic price might as well be useless.

They'll be smaller collections available from September. This one is really for people who already own a lot of Zondervan/Thomas Nelson stuff. For me personally, this discount is far too small to be tempting. A $15,000 collection ought to be discounted by at least 40% in my opinion.

Indeed, and because of the relationship Zondervan and FL customers have had in the past, there may not be a large number of folks who do already own a lot of Zondervan materials.

My dynamic price was over $8,800. Regular price shows $14,785, so that's almost $6,000 off. Doesn't help me. Might help someone.

Look on the bright side:  you won't have to spend any of the mortgage proceeds on new library space and shelves.

When this was first announced, I resigned myself to not taking part in the sale. But then I was pleased when they put up the Sale Event page. There are smaller collections available at the bottom. They don't show dynamic pricing right now, but when they do, I will be able to pick up a few of those collections ranging from $10 to $100. Not bad! So I'm happy I'll be participating after all, and I've already put what I want in my cart. Of course, now I'm impatient for September 1!

Beginning to think we need to put our Logos wish lists into a Kickstarter campaign. My price is over $9K. There's only a handful of books I'd buy at this point with what I already have.

Still, this is a real bargain compared to the jet one minister thinks he must have. Wink

I want to keep my home (and Logos). I believe that God will continue to use me without the jet (or even the car). Another topic and off-topic, but I just had to throw that one in. Smile

I'm not really interested in most of the Thomas Nelson stuff, but I'm being offered The Complete Zondervan Bundle for $898.25. For that, I'll get:

  1. Zondervan Biblical Languages Collection (35 vols.) — $616.65
  2. Zondervan Textbook Bundle (8 vols.) — $237.92
  3. NIV Zondervan Study Bible Notes — $19.99
  4. Evangelical Theology — $39.99
  5. Integrative Theology — $50.99
  6. An Interpretive Lexicon of New Testament Greek — $9.59
  7. How to Read the Bible for All its Worth, Fourth Edition — $14.99
  8. How God Became Jesus: The Real Origins Of Belief In Jesus' Divine Nature—A Response To Bart D. Ehrman — $12.99
  9. Church History, Volume Two: From Pre-Reformation To The Present Day — $31.99
  10. Ancient Context Ancient Faith Upgrade Collection (3 vols.) — $28.77
  11. Hearing the Message of Scripture Commentary Series (2 vols.) — $30.99
  12. Basics of Ancient Ugaritic — $39.95

So if I was to buy everything separately, it will cost me $1,134.81 - a saving of $236.56, or just over 20%. A discount of 20% is nowhere near enough to tempt me to purchase products I've already been passing over for years.

My understanding is that the larger collections are already on sale and already dynamically priced. You can see the break down on the individual product page if you rest your cursor over the grey question mark in front of "Dynamic Price." The smaller collections won't show dynamic pricing or a sale price until September.

Nicely expressed - my thoughts are much the same.
