Sometimes I may purchase an individual volume or a few volumes of a collection of books (such as a Commentary collection), only to realize later on I want the entire collection. 

It'd be great if Logos could offer "Complete My Collection", similar to "Complete My Album" on iTunes.

Say I purchase a few volumes of a commentary collection such as Word Biblical. I purchase a few individual volumes for a college class I'm taking. I later on realize I want the entire WBC collection. I can "Complete My Collection" by upgrading to the entire collection at a discount since I've already purchased some of the books in it.

Even though Logos' collections such as these are already of excellent value, publishers shouldn't mind too much since they've already made profits off of the individual book sales, and it's a way to entice customers to come back and purchase the rest of the collection as well.

It'd be handy and a way for us to sample collections we're considering purchasing by purchasing one or a few volumes, then coming back later and purchasing the rest at a discount should we decide to go for it.

I believe Logos already does that now. I know they used their "dynamic pricing" system with the various Chrstmas specials. I verified it by copying the list of items in the set I bought, the Reformed Bundle, onto an Excel worksheet and then filling in the list prices for each individual Item in the bundle. The resulting total price was far more than the price quoted for the bundle. But, when I took out the total of the lists prices for the items in the bundle that I already owned, the total of the remaining items was exactly what was quoted on the bundle listing as my price before the bundle discount.

+1 Yes for dynamic upgrade pricing for all bundles and collections.

Thankful for dynamic pricing of Logos base packages and Christmas Book Bundles.

Noticed older bundles =>  http://www.logos.com/product/15784/essential-reference-bundle , => http://www.logos.com/product/20187/nelson-501-book-unlock , => http://www.logos.com/product/5656/zondervan-bible-reference-bundle have fixed regular prices.  Dreaming of dynamic pricing for all collections and bundles.

Thanks for the clarification! So it's partially implemented in the BC and CB products, but Logos needs to extend it to older collections. Would be great and I'd probably end up knocking a few things off my wishlist. :-)

I just noticed this:

But if I click on the first link I see

So if it's not implemented everywhere, they're certainly working on it. Yes

I have the same offer..  However its confusing..

If I want the missing 7 volumes I can pay $319.95 ----or--- $314.26 if I buy the 15 vol and it gives me credit for the 8 I already have???
