20% won't get me off the couch.  Now 40-50% and I'm there in a flash.  

I agree, this is a once in a year big event and all they can give is the same old 20% off !?

It is rather pedestrian compared to the likes of Drzewiecki offering 50% off (FSPS). I know where my money will be going this ThanksGiving

Then you have Flight1 where there is rarely a sale and the Level-D (great aircraft, btw, but 15 years old) is still priced like it just came out.

Yeah, don't get me started on Flight1. I have only bought one or two products from them (eg EZdock), but have stopped going there long ago, as there are never good deals to be had and as you say, they still offer ancient products at today's prices. Completely lost touch with reality.

It's like walking into an old computer store somewhere on the prairies and seeing an Intel 80286 (16-bit) laptop for sale at $1500, lol

That is quite disrespectful. A developer is kindly discounting their products and you complain about the percentage? Instead of being so entitled why don't you thank them for doing what they can, afterall it is for THANKSgiving, right?

Shame they've still not updated the Ikarus C42 to be P3D V4 compatible. Been waiting for that to happen for a while.

PWJT8D I get what you're saying, but please remember that you see it from the point of view of an American. I live in a country where we don't have a Thanksgiving day and Black Friday only started here about three or four years ago. I therefore don't see it as a Thanksgiving day, but rather as a Black Friday with ruthless price cutting. SIM720 is a UK company where they don't celebrate Thanksgiving either, so they may call it a "Thanksgiving" sale to appeal to Americans shoppers, but for the rest of us it is a Black Friday event.

Maybe I'm naive and completely wrong in my attitude, but when this time of the year rolls around, I'm looking for good deals and not thanking everyone around me. Regardless, in a sea of bargains and with limited funds, I'm not going to spend it on a 20% discount (which SIM720 usually offers at other times as well). In a very harsh way perhaps, we're actually helping SIM720 by telling them why we're not supporting them. They will therefore know why they're not seeing huge sales at a time when the guys offering 50% plus discounts will be rolling in cash.

No you are on point …. we aren't disrespecting the developers work, we are saying if you choose to discount your product we certainly appreciate it BUT its called Black Friday for a reason so in keeping with tradition, yes I'm expecting more than 20% which is your typical offer throughout the year for other holidays such as memorial day etc... a recent great example is what Quality Wings did with their BAE146 … older product ported other to p3dv4 with a few improvements here and there and then discounted 50% and people have been snapping it up every since
