One of my favourite things about Logos is the Community Pricing and Pre-Pub specials. By ordering resources in advance, I benefit from substantial discounts and immediate access to resources as soon as they’re released.
There’s one problem, though. When you order something on Pre-Pub, you usually don’t know exactly when it’s going to be released. And that might mean that if the Dictionary of Classical Hebrew or the John MacArthur Sermon Library happens to be launched at the same time my car insurance is due to renew, I might miss out.
Don’t miss out on the best deals
I might miss out, that is, were it not for for Logos’ Book Cache program. By purchasing Logos credit via a monthly subscription, I can make sure that when those Pre-Pubs arrive, I’m able to take advantage of them. All I had to do was to take out a Book Cache subscription, and then check the box on the credit section of my account page. Now, when Pre-Pubs are released, I don’t have to worry whether my credit card is already maxed out—I can automatically pay using the Logos credit I’ve already purchased through Book Cache.
Easily spread out the cost
Of course, there’s a second advantage to Book Cache. Instead of paying hundreds of dollars for Logos resources in one month and then very little the next month, I can spread out my payments evenly over a longer period. That makes budgeting easier—and my wife much happier!
So if, like me, you’d love to have more than 3,000 John MacArthur sermons in your library (but you’re not sure you’ll have $199 on hand when the resource is ready), go ahead and order it. Then just take out a Book Cache subscription for $60 or $80 a month: by the time the sermons are released, you’ll already have most (if not all) of the credit you need, depending on the release date. With a $60 Book Cache subscription, you would pay for the archive in just four months, and have $40 in credit to put toward another resource. With a payment plan at about $62/month, it would take an extra three months to purchase the same sermons after they’re released. For me, that makes Book Cache a no-brainer.
