A bigger sale in the near future?

Recommended Posts

Hello affinity.

Is now the best time to buy this Affinity designer and Affinity Photo? I really wan't to buy them, but will there be a bigger sale right after this? I am buying them both either way, so just wanted to know if affinity has planed another sale in the near future that's more than 25%

Really? They are dirt cheap without any special sale going on and then 25% less is not big enough? I'll never get people...

 

Quite so! At the list price of US$50, a 20% discount is $10 and a 25% discount is $12.50. What can you buy for $2.50 these days??

Er ... nope! My point was that a 25% discount is just $2.50 more than a 20% discount. ;)

joking asside I think it´s best to buy AD now and wait with AP until AP launches on Windows as I think it is safe to assume that it will get a discount at that point for mac as well.

 

and maybe look out for discounted iTunes cards so that you can get AD and AP for about (0,8*0,8)% of the normal price effectively

 

cheers  :)

 I was just trying to poke a little fun at the different ways discounts can be calculated: 20% off the retail price is 25% of the discounted price. So $2.50 can be considered 5% of the retail price or 6.25% of the discounted one.

 

I am ancient enough to remember this being something that confused some of my classmates in school & a few of them bringing in "four banger" TI calculators to "prove" to the teacher that they got the right answer on a math test. I guess that was too obscure a reference ... & probably not as funny to me as it would be to anybody else even if they knew what I meant.

 

Sorry for the confusion.  :wacko:

My point is it is already very cheap to make those considerations. But ok...

Crikey. PSE is £47.96. I just checked on Amazon UK. It's normally £70 - £80 so I guess today is a Blue Wednesday or something. Full Fat PS (back when you could buy it) was about £600. I'll write that out in full; six hundred pounds. ish. And Affinity is promising to sell AP at... £39.99.

 

These guys have to eat y'know.

Affinity products are ridiculously good value. I tried PSE as a cheaper alternative to full PS and didn't get on with it at all, and then a few weeks later they brought out a new version which I'd have to pay for if I wanted the update.

 

Photo is ten times better than PSE at half the price, and you get free updates.
