A number of people will purchase a commentary set at March-Madness prices.

A lot of us won't. Either because we can't afford an entire set, we prefer selecting individual authors, we're focused on a particular testament, book, or other part of the Bible. Etc.

Please consider offering the individual volumes at 10% less discount than the respective set's March-Madness sale price. (E.g., Round 1 individual titles for 25% off rather than the set discount of 35% off.)

I think this would be a win/win for all.  Thanks!

I don’t think they can but there is dynamic pricing so you don’t pay for what you own

Yes please! There are so many individual volumes I would buy. I doubt I'll buy any of the sets even with dynamic pricing.

That's not the problem. The problem is having to buy stuff you don't want.

I liken this to the old days of buying LPs and CDs. Sometimes a group would have a hit song (so called "one-hit wonder") and you'd have to pay for the whole album (of junk) to get the one hit song.  Difference is, an album was about ten bucks. These sets are significantly more than that.

I bought into the, "just buy it to get the one you want" mentality as an early Logos user. I found out later how bad a personal philosophy this was (for me), and now I have hundreds of volumes (for which I've paid) that I've never used and never will use, and that clog up searches and slow things down.

As a long-term Logos user, I'll say that bundling is always bad.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

Great points, thanks for helping me to see the other perspective. I usually just bought sets that were cheap even though there may be some volumes that may not be that good.

If I had the option to purchase individual volumes at discounts comparable to those offered for the commentary sets, I would likely spend more. The only commentary sets I am likely to purchase are ones in which I already own almost all of the volumes except newer ones from the past 2-3 years (e.g., Opening Up Commentary, Pillar NT, NAC, etc.). I just cannot afford entire commentary sets, especially sets that are even in their quality from volume to volume, and I imagine I am not alone.

I know that everyone wanted a change from the authors March Madness, but this chance is not interesting at all. I get to buy a whole set of commentaries which is beyond my budget and even at a maximum discount of 60%, I am still paying more per volume than previous sales that I got on the other volumes I have in the set. I know what you are saying about getting individual volumes, but the price is still not that great on most of these compared to the past. I may find myself not buying anything at all from this sale.

I'm very happy that after March Madness, Logos put individual commentaries on sale at 50% off.  The notice today was "Sale Ending" -- soon, I suppose.

Here's the link:
