BTW Waves responded that they've added the Saturator plugin to my account, however did not respond with any further clarification or info. I will be monitoring future sales and documenting these claims of "8 units available at this price" and forwarding them to consumer rights groups. As far as I'm concerned (despite the message I received on here claiming there is nothing wrong with this practice) it's plainly obvious that this is NOT OK.
You are so lucky! I didn't receive the Saturator plugin, and I didn't even receive the two free plugins for having made a purchase over $100, only one and a sh**ty response "we cannot give you more free plugins". I'm not asking for a free plugin, I'm asking for what corresponds to me according to the promotion.

Did you buy them in one hit?

Always read the Waves T&Cs. There's invariably something that makes it work the way you didn't expect.

Yeah, I made two different transactions. First $58, second $107. According T&C I should receive three free plugins, but I have received only two. One for each.

Edit: That quoted T&C are for the current promo, I'm talking about the black friday promo ($50 or more -> 1 free plugins / $100 or more, two free plugins)

I can't keep up with these different offers (not that I was buying anything from them this time around). That sounds pretty arbitrary on their part. What was their reasoning? That it was a "one purchase per household" kind of a deal or just "we're not doing it"?

Even then, I can't see the value in not simply giving you the freebies. Holding out just splashes more bad publicity around when the cost of delivering them is minimal.

Situation like these tend to get resolved if you're able to escalate it up the management chain. Low-level grunts get told to apply the rules (whatever they are), while the more senior you go the less enthusiasm they have for holding out. Getting that escalation is the tricky bit, though.

EDIT: Just went back through the emails (I don't delete them - the hard drive bits are cheap). One is actually headlined "Get 3 FREE plugins".

Also, the T&Cs (web page is still active: https://www.waves.com/black-friday-2019 ... als-b-2019)
"Each customer can take advantage of the free plugin offer multiple times. For example, if you order $100 in one transaction and $100 in another, you are eligible for a total of four free plugins."

This seems pretty open and shut. I don't know what that rep is smoking unless there's something you haven't mentioned.

Thank you. This is really weird. I wonder why it won't work for me. Very frustrating.

I know his name pops up all the time in this thread, but I just wanted to give a quick shout out to Uncle E who, yet again, was able to get me a great deal on the latest object of my digital desire.
It's nice having an Uncle in the business!

Just wanted to put in a heads up on Sonokinetic's Xmas sale. Starts today at 8 am pst (about an hour and a half) Usually the freebie is on the second day. But always lots of great deals. Though probably not for me as I have a lot of their stuff.

I‘m only missing their vocal and orchestral effects libraries. Are these any good?
