How Much Can You Save? DAZ and HiveWire 3D Sales

A new day, a new sale at DAZ3D. How does Smash n’ Grab work? Well, it requires you to buy at least one new release, and then to add your choice from a selection of 2412 items for a scaling discount.

3 items will get you $18 off your order total, 6 items will get you $48 off your total, and 9 items will earn you a whopping $90 off. Big discounts, but you’ll be buying a lot to get the maximum so choose carefully. Note that if you have 5 items in your cart, you will save more on your order total by adding a 6th, and similarly by increasing from 8 to 9. It’s going to be easier to get a great deal if you are in the Platinum Club Plus, but it’s not impossible to make up your order of only vendor items and not blow your budget sky high.

There are no actual new releases so far today, so you will need to choose from one of those that still shows its introductory discount. There seems to be a week’s worth of new releases to choose from. The least expensive are of course the texture sets but if you don’t have the matching item you’ll get more use out of something like the fabric shaders (Fun with Yarn, Brocado, or for a couple of extra dollars the fantastic set by Fisty) or Predatron’s Poinsettias.

It looks like the bundle pricing for those Good and Evil outfits got itself sorted out eventually. Did you pay too much? File a ticket with Customer Service and you’ll be able to request the difference back. The Avalanche of Savings discounts are still going too, with 190 DAZ Original Hair products, 1454 DAZ Original Clothing products, and 309 DAZ Original Creature and Animals products to choose from. PC+ members can clean up here as the 40% is additional to your PC+ discount. You’ll also get a 50% discount (40% for non-members) on the following PA stores:

  • ForbiddenWhispers
  • Horo
  • David Brinnen
  • Artemis3d
  • EmmaAndJordi
  • Ansiko
  • The DigiVault
  • Freya

  • Ryverthorn
  • HolbeinC
  • RajRaja
  • Nikisatez
  • 3djoji
  • The AntFarm

Not a member? No need to feel left out. There’s a handy new set today that’s available to everyone for free. Junk Alley is by Imaginary_House and has a gritty urban backdrop of wall and fence along with assorted props and debris. Love the addition of a sofa! Your teen rebels and down-and-outs are going to have some fun with that.

HiveWire3D Sale

Although the savings aren’t huge, there are some beautiful products discounted in the Birds & Botanicals sale at Hivewire 3D, and your reward points there will give you a bigger saving than that shown on the store page. I can personally vouch for the quality of Ken’s work with the Songbird ReMix series, and Lisa’s Botanicals also have an excellent reputation. HiveWire doesn’t have frequent sales and you’ll have a long wait for the next one.
