Okay, this type of sale happens only a couple of times each year in the Silhouette Design Store. So, I just HAD to tell you about it! It’s the Mega Sale — HALF OFF EVERYTHING!
Note: This post contains affiliate links. That means if you click the link and purchase something, I receive a small commission. You pay the same price. This helps me to be able to keep my business going and provide more tutorials.
Now through next Tuesday, June 1, 2021, EVERYTHING IS HALF OFF!!! Yes, absolutely every design and font is 50% off for a week.
What I love about this type of sale is there are no limits to how many items you can buy, there’s no danger of them selling out, and you can shop from anywhere (including in bed, at your child’s sports practice, etc.).
So what should I buy during the mega sale?
Here are the top things to take advantage of during this sale, as they carry the highest prices.
- Commercial licenses
- Fonts, particularly Premium fonts
- 3D designs
- Projects (also called Ready, Set, Make) — they include multiple items.
- Daily Deals, Weekly Steals and Last-Chance designs. They will be CHEAP. For instance, 1 weekly steal is .21 this week. If I used up all my subscription credits, I’d get it for .11!!! Check the Daily Deals each day.
- Designs or fonts on your Wish List or from your favorite artist
- A subscription — No, they aren’t on sale, but it very quickly pays for itself. Say you got Basic subscription. You’d pay $10 to get $25 in credits. Since everything is half off, it’s like getting $50. Be sure to read the fine print on subscriptions so that you know things like that you have to use credits within 60 days and that they can only be used while you have an active subscription.
If you already have your subscription, you’ll get even more bang for your buck. With the Deluxe, Premium and Diamond subscriptions, after you have used all your credits you get a discount automatically on other designs. Say you have the Premium subscription and a 0 credit balance. You get 50% off any more designs you buy until you get your next set of credits! So if a really special font is $19.99, during the MEGA sale it’s $10, but if you’ve already spent your Premium subscription credits, it’s $5 for you. The commercial license for that font might be $99.95, so half price is $49.98, and half of that is $24.99. The savings can add up pretty quickly.
HINT: With the Premium and Diamond subscriptions, Last-Chance designs are always free, even if you have remaining credits.
What isn’t on sale?
Speaking of subscriptions, you may ask if you’d get 50% off of those right now. Or maybe you like working with Credit Boosts (read about those here) or Download Cards and want to stock up. The answer is, “No, those are not on sale.” You’ll find sales on those at other times of the year.
Design Bundles are not on sale because they are already heavily discounted.
Now get out there and stock up!
