Not sure if most of those interested saw my post in a previous thread. Lots of folks were expressing a desire for a discount for purchasing the remaining 4 volumes of the Pillar NT Commentary set, but when they called their reps, were not successful. Someone asked if anyone was, to let the others know, so I'm posting.

I DID receive what I consider a decent discount. The four volumes total $224. I had planned on purchasing these anyway... had just been waiting to see if they might be discounted for Christmas... as it looked like they weren't going to be, I went ahead and ordered, thinking that I would at least earn some Christmas credit.

The rep gave me a "Pillar Upgrade" price of $168 for the four volumes. That is a 25% discount than if you buy the four volumes individually. Seems fair, although yes, it is admittedly an expensive set. It comes out to $42 per volume.

I look at it a bit differently... I upgraded to Platinum specifically for the Pillar set (10 volumes) and one other title which costs $30, as I really wanted them. (I was only mildly interested in the other volumes of Platinum that I didn't already own). The cost for me to have purchased just the Pillar 8 volume set plus the two additional volumes would have been more than my upgrade price of $279. I basically purchased the 8 volume set ($249) and my other $30 book, and received the additional two Pillar volumes and the Platinum upgrade for free. Good deal.

So now I had to pay $168 for the rest of Pillar (again, a 25% discount). That seems fair in light of what I have already received. Plus I received $42 in Logos credit (as I am in the (25% bracket at the moment)... so my discounted price for Pillar will for all practical purposes work out to $146 (a 35% discount) thanks to the Christmas sale (a bit more than $36 per volume for these four volumes... about the same per volume rate as the 14 volume set as a whole without a discount). I have the set listed in my Order History as Pillar New Testament Commentary Upgrade (4 volumes). I have downloaded the books and have been enjoying them over the past day. I'm glad I made the purchase.

I have searched the website and thus far haven't found such a Pillar Upgrade available. Clicking on the link in my order history also leads to a "product not available" page. I didn't ask the rep for the special price as I had read in the forum that no one had been successful... he just offered it. So it seems like Logos was listening to the many people who called... maybe it would be worthwhile for some of you to call back if this is of interest to you.

Posting only because a lot of you have helped me in the past, and many had expressed the wish that such a discount existed, so I'm simply sharing my experience in the hope it helps.

Thanks, Emile!  I've asked my rep if he can match that!
