Does the discount apply for PDF purchases, or just for dead-tree format sales?

I see, thank you.


Now, if only there was a way to get the PDF for Field Manual: 3145 on there before the sale runs out...

(Not that I'd be in much of a position to afford it this week in any event, but still.)

But still, it sounds like it'll be quite the offer. Thanks to CGL for making it happen.

It can be if you get an Internet connection there.

  I just tried to take advantage of this to pick up the Shadowrun supplement Euro Wars Antiques.  Thing is, when I tried to redeem the code, I got a pop-up bar saying 'this code could be used only 1 time', and now that the transaction's gone through, the final purchase price (either on BattleShop or my card) didn't reflect any discount.  Am I the only one in this position?  :-\

I've been using DTRPG for my .pdf purchases for a while now, since they save them in my library for later download unlike BattleCorp, but I will have to look into this.

Yeah, I know...I finally let my BattleCorps subscription lapse since, well, they stopped doing the things that interested me,
like Spine Fiction, BattleCorps member exclusives, and even not releasing enough in a month where the discount from membership was more then what I paid for in subscription fee. I have switched to DrivethruRPG and have found it
rather nicer, since they don't have the problem of sometimes taking multiple attempts to download before it lets you
download.

Same here. Wanted to put my graduation gift selection, to myself, through but got this message as well... There's a fair amount of BT lucre in there and it's going to South Africa so any extra discount would be fantastic!

Ditto.  Got the same message although I didn't complete the transaction because no discount was applied.

Yup, we're looking into it. Coupon code is supposed to be active, but is not working correctly. Will let you know after I hear back and test it successfully. Thanks for your patience folks.

I'm disappointed that this announcement did not coincide with the release of TRO 3145 Lyran Commonwealth. :P

Is it just one time per customer? I bought a small item to see that it worked then put together a bigger order when it did. Now it says I've used my allotment per customer. From your wording I thought it was for all purchases in this period, not just once.

Am I wrong?

Yes and no. That's not the intent, and it's actually something we discovered earlier today. With everyone away at Origins, I'm trying to figure out how to correct exactly that issue.

I know CGL doesn't announce release dates, but for those of us who have all extant Battletech material, is there anything new coming out between now and the 17th which we could use this coupon on?

I hope that is just on the BattleTech side of things. I am hoping we are going to see a very particular Shadowrun
product during the sale...

My BattleCorps subscription ended last week and I extended it for six more months . Could I use this coupon to extend it for another six months and make it one year long from this point on (give or take)?

Best bet is to email Customer Service (customerservice.catalyst@gmail.com) with that question. I don't know how the subscription side works and my only response would only be a best guess.

Yes, BC subscriptions stack. I bought two or three 6-month periods at once at one time.

Good to know, though I finally spent my intended budget for this promotion mostly on old BC stories published before my first subscription.
