    Thank you both for validating my purchasing decisions/enabling my addiction.

    I somehow missed the email. I did see your post and was able to purchase the deal. Thanks, Jeff. You are more than just a pretty face.

    I had to read it half a dozen times before I understood what it was.

    Ultimately I decided to pass - some things have changed financially this week (we went through another huge round of layoffs at work AND then those that are left are having to take a mandatory furlough day once a week for the next three to six months - yay 20% paycut!)

    Damn! I'm so sorry for the hardship. Survivor guilt and paycuts are horrible right around the holidays. Do you have any interesting books you'd like to sell to offset the dent in your income?

    And yeah, I kept looking for the bottom line in the offer. Something that clearly and concisely summed up the value ("You'll get XXX number of dollars in value for buying today!"). Instead I had to do math. Once I have to do math--even simple math--I begin to question what I'm getting. My brain wonders: "Are they trying to hide the value? Am I really getting what I think I'm getting?" Because I don't trust my powers of reasoning and math. But I do trust my ability to fall into bad deals because I'm gullible. All of this is not a bad reflection on CD--just an insight into my paranoia and low self-regard. I trust CD--not myself.

    There's more playing into it than just the cut in hours/income (I can offset lost wages by using my PTO - but that would mean I can't get sick (I do have ability to work from home so that's something) or take a vacation) but it sounds like we will move in with wife's mom. Save us rent and utilities, and cut my four a day commute time in half.

    If push comes to shove - I could sell my Suntup Misery and live like a kind for a little while.

    I think what confused me was the how the benefit worked because the benefit was the same as the freebie bonus - just confused myself repeatedly.

    There was still a lot of temptation - like there's there's still temptation about that damn Misery paperweight - and now Camelot's sale - but I just can't do it. Be hard to explain.

    Oops, that’s my fault! I usually include a line that does the math but I totally forgot. I’m out of the house right now, but will fix tonight!

    Pretty much passed for the same reason, Jason although hopefully my situation will be nowhere near as bad as yours. I should know by the middle of next week. Best of luck to you during the lean times.

    That sucks. Anything else worth looking at in the job market? Might be a good time to jump ship!

    I went for the offer too, although it also took me a few minutes to figure out exactly what it meant

    We also have layoffs at work, although it's more of the nibbling away kind of layoffs - one or two people at a time, no warning. They're trying to outsource us to India. The software I work on has an 85% market share, and contains around 20 million lines of code. Sending it to India is like selling Ferraris and then having them serviced at Jiffy Lube. But hey, the CEO is doing ok!

    Yes. I love this and was a part of this before and am happy to see it back.

    I jumped on this immediately. Along with the Camelot sale, and another private deal I have going, I have just spent a lot of money.
    I need to stop now.

    Thank you! We have plans to replace the loss in income, and I think it'll be fine in the end, it just sucks (yay holidays!)

    Sadly, the downtimes is impacting all of my industry (I work in the mortgage industry - but I'm a supervisor in IT so it's slightly different) so there isn't a lot of places that do what I do. And I have a feeling that if things get worse, I'll be forced to cut someone before my job would be in jeopardy.

    That sucks big time. We just had a huge round of layoffs in September. 450 people were laid off. I work in the facilities department and they did a number on it. Seems the tech industry is also going through a down time right now. I hope this work out for you sooner then later.

    I went for it as I feel it takes the place of the gift cards that CDCC members got for 50% off. I would buy one for $500 and pay $250. This is really a little bit better than that.

    Between the gift certificate and this offer, I'm good with CD purchases for 2019.

    I'm in on this offer as well. I've took advantage of this offer when it was last offered and really liked it so I'm happy that it has returned.

    It was a tough weekend of choices, though. Between this offer, Camelot Book's 50% Off sale, and the Elric books being offered by Centipede, something had to give. I settled on this as my main choice and had to let the Camelot sale pass me by.
