This set represents an opportunity to get some good commentaries which are rarely (if ever!) discounted. For example, I haven't seen the Reformed Expository Commentaries on sale, though I've been watching them for 18 months or so. (The only exception is one by Brian Chapell which is 30% off in MM sale). 

The total undiscounted price is $1001 and the sale price is 399.99 - just over 60% off for those who haven't any of the volumes. 

I own 14 of the 20 volumes and, counting the full price in place of the MM sale price for one volume, the remaining 6 retail at just under $250. My dynamic price is $112.66, making my discount now just under 50%.  

It seems that dynamic pricing has actually caused my discount level to drop by around 10%. Is this the way it's meant to work?

I had only one book I did not own- it was 11.65- so D-pricing seems to be right here.

Thanks Whyndell though the test is if the normal retail price for that book is around $29 - then you would be getting 60% (or near to it) off. If the normal retail is around $22.99 then your discount level is similar to mine.

Any idea how to figure out what the better price would be?  I own most of this set except a few volumes.  One of the missing ones for me is I Howard Marshal's Pastoral epistles.  Currently with the MM sale, it is 30% off so would it be better to buy that then the set or just the set outright?

Hi Mattillo,

Best to get the set outright if you are interested in the other volumes.

For me with my dynamic discount, it makes sense to buy volumes with over 50% off. Any less than that isn't worth it. I'm waiting to the end of  MM to get the FF Bruce volume before I go for the set.

Thank you Colin.  I'll wait on the epistles then

What is this Challies Commentary Set? I am not familiar with it. Can you provide a link?

Thanks
