Hello:

Is there any way to know the past evolution of prices at Logos? Just to know if we are offered a good deal, or it is better to wait.

Thanks!

This only works if the page has been archived at some point.

It might be more helpful to compose a "Wish List" on your profile that will reflect the current prices.  Then if anything on your wish list goes on sale it will be reflected there. All you have to do is check it from time to time.  Focus on quality resources you know you want rather than a huge quantity of resources.

One caveat to this approach. The absolute cheapest way to get any resource is to find it included in one of the packages. Most of the time you will get other very valuable resources for the same price or less of that one resource. Since Logos 9 was released in the Fall along with new packages, now is a good time to go through and identify the packages that contain desired resources for you.

Just to add (or emphasise) Greg. One should make a point of watching the price of 'quality resources' ie things that one needs rather than wants.

When one goes to purchase then make a habit of checking the 'is included in the following packages box'. One can be pleasantly surprised on occasion.

I recently started using the following link:

https://www.logos.com/search?limit=60&page=1&ownership=unowned&geographicAvailability=all&sortBy=Savings&filters=language-english_Language%2Bstatus-live_Status

This lists me all resources that I do not have sorted by discount. This has helped me get some good deals on popular reading, not necessarily on heavy theological books.

This is really worth doing. It also saves you from needing to check regularly, as you usually get an email to alert you if something on your wish list goes on sale. Also, the Sales team look at your Wish list when putting together any kind of deal.

Two excellent and needed points, Mike.  Logos is an incredible tool that I have used daily for 12 years. I have amassed a large library in Logos. However, it is a mistake to only focus on how many resources.  Identifying resources that will be helpful is easily done in today's world and then making a list consisting of the resources that you most desire to have. Build the library strategically. With Logos and the packages you will add resources that you didn't know you needed!

Good point, GregW.  I have been contacted when a wish list item went on sale and I have had a salesperson look at my wish list and offer an extra deal when I had called about something else.
