There are definitely deals to be found on Logos.com. Here are some tips to ensure you don’t miss them.
Bid on Community Pricing Products
We often post on Logos Talk about deals that are available on Community Pricing because they’re some of the greatest bargains you are going to find on Logos.com. The more people who bid on Community Pricing products, the lower the prices go. We’ve had collections sell for less than $10.
Puritan Sermons 1659–1689 (6 vols.) is a good example of the kinds of bargains you can find on Logos.com. The average bid for this six-volume collection of inspiring sermons, from the likes of John Owen and Richard Baxter, is $30. But it isn’t finished yet. With enough bids, the price can fall even lower!
Take a look at the Community Pricing page and see what’s available.
Check the Pre-Pub Page Often
Pre-Pubs are another way to get more book for your buck.
To justify the cost of developing a resource, we put that resource in Pre-Publication (or Pre-Pub). People vote on the resources they want to see developed by pledging to buy them while they are on Pre-Pub. Once we gather enough sales to pay for the creation of a resource, it moves from Pre-Pub into development.
During the Pre-Pub process, the resources are much cheaper than they will be once they are developed. The resources stay at that Pre-Pub price until they complete the development process. Once the resources are available for download, their price goes up.
It is a good idea to search the Pre-Pub page for the newest listings so that you can see when your favorite books go up. You’ll also want to check by ship date to make sure that you don’t miss out on getting a deal on a product that is about to ship.
Take Advantage of Faceted Browsing
Logos.com allows you to refine your search by a number of criteria. If you search the Products page for theology books sorted by price (lowest to highest), you are going to find all sorts of great deals. In fact, you might even run across some free resources. Try this with various topics and resource types.
Download Our Free Mobile Apps
I would be remiss not to mention Logos’ mobile apps. Both the iPhone app and the Android app (currently in beta) are completely free. With this free app you get over 40 Bibles! When you register or sign in to your free Logos account you get more than 30 additional books—absolutely free.
But that’s not all! You will not believe the Bible study you can do when you combine the iPhone app with a Logos 4 base package. Imagine having all of these features on your mobile device:*
- Your resource library at your fingertips
- Text comparison
- Passage guides
- Original language translations
- Original language word studies
- and much more!
At the low price of completely free, this is a true bargain.
*The Android app is currently in beta and, while it does have some great features, it has not yet reached parity with iPhone app.
