I love the Platinum Club annual sale! Oh, I know it comes hot on the heels of that spend-a-thon that is the PA sale. But it’s so much fun and in the past has been a sale where you can get a lot by spending a little. I can’t wait to see what Jack, Laurie and Jen have lined up for us this year.
Now, I know the discounts this month are going to look complicated at first glance. Fortunately, once you unravel them, you will see that they are generous and add up to fantastic savings.
Having stood on both sides recently, I’m not going to comment on the PC / PC+ divide except to say the team have gone to efforts to reward both so hopefully we’ll all get to join in the celebration without anyone feeling left out. (At a glance, it looks like PC+ members will still pay more for PC new releases, but will get a little bonus discount on a few other products instead. Like I say, the team have definitely spent time trying to keep this fair, even if you find you are on the wrong side of the fence for a particular saving.)
You can see all the days new releases and special sales on the 2014 PC Anniversary Sale event page in the DAZ3D Store.

Watch out for even bigger discounts in time-limited category sales. I’ve listed the current ones further down.
Day 1 of PC Sale: The Freebies
On Day 1 of the sale, the Platinum Club Mega Pack starts the party with a bang. This is $129.95 worth of PC items bundled together and given away for free to club members. Not a member but want these models? Why not join the PC and take part in this and the rest of the month of fun?
There are 25 products included. Yes, they are old ones, but bear in mind that a good model from several years ago is still a good model now. I know you are probably already heading off to grab the pack, but in case any future web searches bring someone to this post and they are curious about the 2014 PC sale Mega Pack, I’ll list the contents here.
Yes, as if that wasn’t enough, there’s an additional freebie. Sedor’s Little Devil Poses for Victoria 6 might have been created with Halloween in mind, but of course many of us can use an Evil Queen style character all year round. The pack has 20 poses and includes a Devil trident too. I’ve been impressed by Sedor’s pose work before and this is a generous contribution to the sale — thanks Sedor!
