Didn’t it? Was it €49 while it was still in the Rewards section? I don’t think so. I checked yesterday and for the day or so it was reduced it wasn’t there. Now it’s back up to €99 today it’s back in the Rewards section.
Yes, it was there up until this morning.
Maaaaaaan!!!!! So essentially free with a 50 voucher? Seriously though. I checked yesterday when I saw it discounted as I usually do with Reward REs just in case and it wasn’t there.

Yep. Strangely enough it’s also taken its place again in the Rewards section. Hmm.
It never left the rewards section
Well thanks for telling the community in time.

S’what I thought. Especially in light of the fact that the majority of users here have had no use for their “rewards” points and that general opinion is that the whole system is a kick in the teeth.

I had confirmed it with folks on Slack. But who knows how it would've actually been handled in the checkout process...for all we know people would've claimed their vouchers and then the system might've still said it deducted $50 or whatever from $99... I wouldn't trust quirks with a system that has expiring vouchers.

Personally I’d have taken that chance. When the UJam REs showed as €49 in the Rewards section the vouchers worked. To me the whole points thing is completely worthless so this might have been an unexpected bonus. I guess there’s no point thinking about it now.

Well, I would have taken the gamble, joey. Since the points are useless otherwise.

If the vouchers were applicable, then it says a lot about PH, too. Killing the deal just a day later. Probably a slip-up. "Sorry, we didn't want to actually reward you with anything".

Why else would they cancel the "Deal of the week" :?

Do you get the impression that they are not entirely in control of their shop? Maybe still ironing bugs out of it since the recent revamp.

This has probably already been said too much (by me mostly) but the last two deals of the week have come out of the Rewards section. So...is it going to be like this? Just thinking of those who used their voucher to buy Layers Waves or Audio Cart. I know it’s the same thing as when you’ve bought other stuff for full price then it goes on sale but c’mon. Saying that, maybe it’s just me.
Hi there - Not sure if this is relevant, but I just had an issue with using vouchers on discounted items. These items aren’t supposed to be available in the Rewards shop, but I recently saw one in there and tried to buy it with a voucher. It got denied, but the voucher was activated anyway, even though I couldn’t do the purchase. PH support sorted it all out, but in future I’ll be sure not to try to buy anything already discounted which appears in the rewards store!

Thanks. Yeah. That was an old post of mine you quoted but you’ve maybe cleared up the current ambiguity. I assume you’re talking about Umpf! Right? In any case I am now no longer indignant as a consumer haha :). My Rewards Points can sit where they are and rot until they expire. Thanks.

Whatever this is, it's incredibly unprofessional. As a company, the shop is literally the one thing you want to operate without any disturbances. Even more so if it's the ONLY place where you can sell your shit.

That is a fair point!

So why there's no Deal of The Week this week? Is it not a 'week'? Or is there something else coming?

So what is this now? 3rd Week without a Deal of the Week? Are Propellerheads making sure people are saving their cash for the upgrade?

Or perhaps knowing that many people are holding off with purchases waiting for R11, and they don't want to place devs in a slot where they know they may not sell well?

Could also be that there aren't any devs interested in doing Deal of the Week at the moment?

I thought the general consensus (in other places, not here on ReasonTalk) was that people liked what was announced...

Yeah from what I've seen on Facebook, people are excited. So yeah, maybe not the best time to try a Rack Extension sale?

I will upgrade to the Reason Suite-version but the PX7 FM Synthesizer is not included. Why not give that RE a Deal of the Week?

All the devs and the PH shop staff are busy playing with their other DAWs <cough, cough>
