The Back to School Sale page states, "During the Back-to-School Sale, save 40% on Logos 9 & up to 50% off academic resources."

Is the 40% discount meant to apply to everyone who has academic status, or only those who apply for it during the sale?

The former would make more sense, but the website is not currently giving everyone with academic status that 40% off.

I'm not in the academic program, and I don't see 40% off; I see 30% off.  The 50% off is the same.  

These "Back to School" sales are usually open for everyone, and they usually don't require academic status.

Even the 30% is pretty good; that plus the free August and monthly sale, I picked up a nice grouping.  The Verbum Monthly had a missing volume.

The BTS sale is interesting.  They even included Muraoka's Hebrew/LXX.  I thought I was the only one enjoying that one.

And per chance some Muraoka fans, a review of his LXX lexicon (not in Logos):

Just adding, another BTS sale resource, some might not know about:

https://www.logos.com/product/207821/the-greek-new-testament-produced-at-tyndale-house-cambridge-with-dictionary 

I already had the Tyndale House GNT from last year.  This product includes the dictionary.  Now, the dictionary is nothing impressive, but a section of it is unique ... the etymology section groups greek words relative to their etymology as below.  Yes, hold on to your hat, etymologies.  But my other greek etymology resources are one-at-a-time listings.  This one's grouped. 

And for dynamic pricing, affordable.

Thank you for highlighting this -- I'd not even considered it but loving etymology/philology used appropriately ...

Whether due to this thread or for other reasons, users with academic status now see 40% off of Logos packages, but not Verbum ones.

SineNomine:

Now the Verbum ones have been added. Big Smile
