Did you try changing your email in "profile" to your paypal address or email you used to purchase previous bundles?

I bought it, but I wanted to gift Parallels.  I didn't see the option to gift just it?  I know I can give him my information to use, but it would be nice if it had his information on it.

We will see if he can use his information during registration.

Okay, this sort of sucks. I have Parallels (love it) and don't have any need for Mac Pilot, but if the bonus app is Coda and I knew I was one of the first 1000 I'll buy it right now.

Not sure I want to roll the dice.

It doesn't that I know of.  If you have "Mystery Bonus Application" on your order page you are one of the 1000.

is the hold on specifying the bonus app due to rewarding early buyers - i.e. those that (blindly) purchase regardless?

..

a better question.  why the delay?

I think you may have to.

lots of Mac related blogs have ran with the news including TUAW (who also picked up on our Coda or Lineform guess for the bonus app)

the sales are rolling in, I think the 1000 sales mark will be gone before tomorrow night

Price for two bundles is more than twice the price for one bundle if I get the 10$ previous purchasor discount. Does this make sense? I don't think it does. This means I better buy two bundles seperately than at the same time.. might be an idea to fix that;-)
Or maybe not, people who actually bought two bundles might complain. Well you can still give the extra money you get from people buying two bundles to charity;-)
Gets me to the point: I miss the charity stuff this time. Alright, might not be possible in this case for economical reasons, fine as well but I really hope, the charity stuff comes up again with MH3. It's a good thing.

unless the counter is set to tally charity accidentally, some of the pages do list a charity amount.  agreed, this is always good.

I was just wondering as well. But I assume if there was a charity part, it would definitely be announced on the front page as it is a wonderful promotion. Probably the counters just count 25% anyway...
But let's ask those who know:
Dear directorate, please enlighten us by telling us if there's a charity donation planned from this sale or rather not this time.

And also tell us what our mysterious bonus app will be big_smile

i see the 1k threshold is quickly being reached tho...
i would have thought we'd reached ll saturation, maybe they're all banking on coda?


i will say, i like the little flurries of MH.com activity in between big heists.  maczot and mupromo get annoying - in that I've missed a deal i really wanted, even though i check them most of the time...the whole 24hour turnaround is too short.

it seems to be a good way to keep us around, w/o only the forums to keep us busy (as interesting as that can be smile

Honestly though, if they had coda, wouldn't they be shouting from the rooftops?

I'm going to put my money on the mystery app being Lineform. It makes the most sense, as Freeverse just finished a deal with MH having SoundStudio in the last bundle.

If it does turn out to be Coda, I will be surprised.

It's just fun if there's something to speculate about. Honestly I mainly got in this deal for the thrill.

If you wait for that you'll be too late. The sales are running. Take the risc or let it go. That's the fun part ;-)


thatgeek wrote:

Not sure: If you check the sales, they obviously don't need to announce the mystery app - the sales will easily go over the first thousand soon. So if it's just a treat for the early buyers... if they would shout it loud (whatever it is) they would need more than 1000 licenses.

I rather fear that even with the app hidden by now, the 1000 special deals will be too few so many people will miss it because they didn't even get online before the offer was already off. Could again lead to a whining choir:-(

For anyone on the fence about buying, I just got in from my trip to Washington and checked the page, bought.  (I don't have any Windows apps, but for $39, it's nice to have it just in case.) I'm also on board for the mystery app, so it's still available, although I don't know what the count is.  So if you're wondering, the first 1000 hasn't been reached yet.

Why do I keep jumping on these "deals"?  I already have both apps and have no need for duplicates.  That mystery app better be good or I'm gonna really have to sit back and evaluate if the future MH is for me.

You speak as if someone is holding a gun to your head and making you buy! And as if it is their fault if you don't like the mystery app. If the bundle has no value to you, do not buy it! No one is making you.

But yeah, lots of good reporting, with TUAW as noted, Ars, MacUser, Wired's Cult of Mac blog and many others posting.

If you guys are at all interested in the first 1000 - participate ASAP. The window is closing fast.
