Free Traps 2 set with a large purchase?? 8 Years, 6 Months ago  
Hi, I don't see it anywhere but I saw in the forums that if you spend a certain amount of money you will receive a free Traps 2 set. Is this the case? If so does preorders count and how much must be spent. Thanks....

I do not see them anymore in the SPecial Offers section.

But when it was there you had to purchase $120 or so of IN STOCK items- pre-orders did NOT count.

It did the normal thing DF specials do: disappear with little/no notice.
I have asked Jeff in several postings to put an actual expiration date on the DF WEB page specials, but there have been no changes there.
I am waiting for a consulting fee and I have missed both the SF Alpha and Traps 2 specials now.
VERY FRUSTRATING!!!

I agree that I'd prefer to see "offer ends" dates for every special offer. This helps with planning and trying to decide whether one eats this week and buys DF next week or vice versa. ;)
They did state for the reduced price on skeletal miniatures would be the end of that month, February if I recall correctly. In all honesty, the sale lasted much longer as I recall, at least until 03/15/06 if not until late April or May.
As a general rule, specials will probably either list end dates of be available until the next special offer takes its place.
The $40 off for 3+ sets of cavernous rivers and walls was active until at least when the cavernous lakes went on pre-order and I think the $40 off for 3+ sets of CR&W is still valid.
I saw the writing on the wall and Jeff did confirm via the forums that the free Traps Set 2 would only be valid through 05/14/06, the day prior to the Cavernous Lakes set going on pre-order.

62 sets and counting. In addition, a boatload of individual pieces or sets of pieces.

Jeff;

I think you're busted this time. You DO need to clearly post end dates for sale specials, so people can't say "You never told us when it ended!"
I know you usually DO post somewhere in the forums an end date, but in all fairness, it SHOULD be posted in the STOREFRONT section.
On the other hand, however, guys, Jeff DOES have a lot on his plate these days. He's only human.
Don't back ALL THE WAY off on him, but lighten up a little.

See ya!

Sorry guys...for the frustration. The reason that I have not posted expiration dates in the past is because I did not really have a pre-determined ending date. I want to have the flexiblity to drop or extend the special because factors "behind the scenes" can greatly effect the reason for having the sale.

So...from now on...I will post something like this, "The offer is good for one week, but after that it could end without notice."

This will allow us to offer the best deals, while giving you guys at least some kind of guaranteed good-thru date. Without the flexibility to end the deals as our conditions change, we won't have many offers.

Again...sorry for the frustration!

Cool that should work. I just have to be more vigilant and " catch " these offers more. I would have loved the Beta one....!!!

Personally, I don't hold anything against Jeff for the specials ending without notice. Specials are, after all, special; i.e., out of the ordinary. So I missed a free Trap Set II with my orders for the Lake set. I still get my three Lake sets, three extra "all water" sections, nine LE Lizardmen ambushers, and three free shots at the Mystery Set. In my opinion, I've gotten my money's worth.

BUT, that said, it would be REALLY NICE if you guys at DF would announce things like "Trap Set 2 offer will expire May 14th, so order now!" After all, the purpose of the specials is to entice us to buy the stuff (as if we needed enticing), so putting an expiration date on the offer helps motivate fence sitters.
