By popular demand, we have a catch-up finale sale today for the 2014 Platinum Club Anniversary! It’s not impossible that this will be a 2-day event, but unless we get confirmation of that, buy everything you want today.
This catch-up event is pretty much good news all round, giving us another chance to pick up some quality items from as low as 99 cents, along with bumper PC bundles and a generous 80% off thousands (yes, literally) of generation 4 items.
Do watch out though for the fact that DAZ Originals no longer have the increased discount that we PC members enjoyed during the sale month. We’re back to a standard 30% instead of 40%. That will make a difference when grabbing items you missed or if you need a new release in the cart to trigger a discount. However, you’ll save so much on everything else that I’m pretty sure you’ll still get yourself some amazing deals.
At time of posting, the Platinum Club releases during the sale don’t have the full PC+ discount, but this looks like an error that is in the process of being fixed.
Also note that there are 8-hour sales going on, that at the moment aren’t all that clearly advertised but include a whole lot of products. You can find them via the The 2014 Platinum Club Annual Sale page, top left banner. I’ve added a summary below for the one going on right now and will update this with any others that I catch.
One last thing… spend over $100 today and you’ll be eligible for an 11% discount on a gift card. If you have the funds, it’s a nice saving. The $100 worth of purchases and the gift card all have to be in the cart together to qualify.
2014 Platinum Club Anniversary Catch-Up Deals
- Crazy Deals: 11 Great Bundles of PC+ Products at $2.99 Per Bundle (50% off full price for non-members). I don’t remember the exact names for these but have tried to give you an idea of the themes below. There are around 10 products bundled into each, meaning you’re saving around $18 even on the usual low PC prices.
- Deal 1 = Carnival I (*special price of $2.95)
- Deal 2 = Carnival II
- Deal 3 = Fantasy Castle
- Deal 4 = Fantasy Places
- Deal 5 = Mage Tower
- Deal 6 = 50s Drive-In I
- Deal 7 = 50s Drive-In II
- Deal 8 = Yamaki Racing
- Deal 9 = Titanic
- Deal 10 = Regency (mostly)
- Deal 11 = Sci-Fi Vehicles
- Anniversary Bundles: 6 Premium Bundles of Top PC+ Items at $9.95 Per Bundle. We didn’t have any bundles this expensive last year, but bear in mind the contents of these are either recent (e.g. Pirates and Vikings) or represent some of the very best of the Platinum Club (e.g. Jack Tomalin’s Aslan Court series). With the new PC+ now in place, you’ll pay more than the usual $1.99 per product for the newest of the items included in these bundles.
- Bundle 1 = Aslan Court and Persian Palace
- Bundle 2 = Pirates
- Bundle 3 = Deco (12 Products)
- Bundle 4 = Yamaki and Rama
- Bundle 5 = Vikings
- Bundle 6 = Future Earth
- 99 Cent Category Sales: 672 PC+ Products at Just 99 Cents Each. The themes this year were as follows…
- Winter Holiday
- Sense and Sensibility
- Fairy Tale
- Far-Off Places
- Artist and Themed Sales Catch-Up — 8 Hours Only. You get 45% Off (40% off if you are not in the PC) all featured products. When this is finished, there will be a new 8-hour sale with different PAs and DAZ Original categories.
- I slept through this one but hope you caught it if you were around. It looks like the included vendors were Mada, Morris, Valandar, Sarsa, 3DCelebrity, Thorne, OrestesGraphics, marforno, Lyrra Madril, MindVision G.D.S., ArtCollab, Nouschka Design, V3Digitimes.
- Alessandro_AM, JoLab1985, Fisty, UmbleFugly, The Management, Blondie9999, EmmaAndJordi, Moyra, DarkStarBurning, 4blueyes, goldtassel, slosh, LaurieS, ShanasSoulmate, deviney, and the DAZ Original Animals and Creatures Category.

As Chris has pointed out in the comments, you can get the discounts without the need to buy a new release. The first 8-hour sale had a pricing issue, but it looks like the DO discount for PC members will now apply for DAZ Originals in the selection.
6 PM to 2 AM Mountain Standard Time (01:00 – 08:00 GMT):
9 PM to 5PM Mountain Standard Time (16:00 – Midnight GMT):
Now Finished — 12 AM (Midnight) to 8 AM Mountain Standard Time (07:00 – 15:00 GMT):
- V4/M4 80% discounted items
Buy a PC sale new release and you’ll be eligible for an 80% discount on a selection of 3229 V4/M4 sale items (how many do you already own?). You do need one of the sale’s new releases in your cart at the same time to trigger the discount. There are some fantastic, rarely-discounted products in this selection. Remember, V4 and M4 skin textures work on Genesis-based characters (that’s generation 5, not the latest generation 6 — see the following page for an explanation of the DAZ Original generations).
