Ok, what's the point of having a pre-pub deal that is going to go up in price before it makes it out of pre-pub? It totally defeats the idea of "Pre-pub." I really don't like this new trend.  I started seeing it in the Spanish pre-pub program and now has moved over to the English.  What's worse is that it only goes up a couple of dollars: https://www.logos.com/product/36928/eerdmans-d-a-carson-collection?utm_source=logos5message&utm_medium=appemessage&utm_content=36928&utm_campaign=logosprepub2013q4b <~~This is one example among many (check out some of the NICOT/NT for more examples).

Any thoughts or ideas why this pointless trend is happening?

My guess is that the idea is to motivate people to jump in quickly so as to gain momentum quickly.

Using adventure and community to challenge young people to continually say "yes" to God

I thought that was always the way it worked - that pre-pub prices could go up at any time, just not up to the final retail price.  I never bothered to check, but I thought I had heard of this in the past.

I simply assumed that it had something to do with the contract for the large Eerdmans release - I didn't assume that it was a trend.

We have seen this happen to Zondervan Pre-Pubs also.

Floyd is correct. Pre-Pub pricing has always worked this way.  For the official word see:
