Artist Store Sales: Save 40% Today

Please note: to help new users figure out which artists they might enjoy, I’ve added a category for each PA’s specialism, genre, or the type of product they are best known for. This is based on their store content as of March 2014. Artists often try new things so this might not represent their future work.

DAZ sales, while exciting, can be notoriously complicated. Let’s figure out the best way to get the top discounts during March.

How it works

  • New items are released each day throughout March. These include a selection of buildings, characters, clothing, additional clothing styles (textures) for recently-released outfits, useful props, and poses.
  • If you buy one new release, you will get it with a 40% discount on the usual selling price. Normal discount for a new release is 30%, so this is 10% more.
  • If you buy two March Madness discounted items, you will get both of them with a 50% discount — so half their usual selling price. To be on the safe side, you should buy both at the same time to qualify.
  • At the top of the March Madness page, you will find listed special items that earn you an extra 10% discount. There may be a couple added during the month — usually big ticket (expensive) items such as bundles. At the moment, the only qualifying product is the Stephanie 6 Pro Bundle. Note: this 10% is normally applied to the discounted price, so won’t work out as 10% of the full selling price.
  • Each purchase earns you a reward point (this March, DAZ3D is calling them punches, which are applied to a virtual punch card). Only the newest items — released on that day or the day before — are eligible for reward points. In other words, if you go back after 5 days to buy a March Madness release, your purchase won’t earn a point.
  • Each point is worth a money off discount, starting from the first point (punch).
  • Earn 5 points to complete the ‘punch card’ and move up to the next tier (where the rewards get bigger). You can see your own personal punch card when logged in, at the top of the March Madness page.
  • Rewards will take the form of discount codes to be used against DAZ Originals (but not new releases). This code will have to be used before it expires so keep a careful eye on its expiry date.
  • No refunds rule: if you earn and use a code, you will not be able to return any of the products you bought to earn that code.
  • Other Featured Items: each day there will be discounts of at least 40% on products that are not brand new (but might only have been released in the last couple of months). They are show in their own category below the new releases. I’ll also list them here. Note: Discount increases to 50% off each item if you buy 2.
  • Artist Store Sales: each day there will be a selection of artist (PA) stores on sale, with all that vendor’s items having a 40% discount. These are show at the bottom of the March Madness page. I’ve also listed them here. Note: Discount increases to 50% off each item if you buy 2.

  • This is my understanding of the sales based on information at the beginning of the month. If you have any dispute or query, you will need to contact DAZ3D helpdesk who can give you the final answer.
