Rare JTS Sale Spotted in the Wild - Get 25% Off16 Dec 2019 0
I say ‘rare’ - I don’t actually know if JTS has ever done a sale or not but this is the first one I’ve seen in the 3+ years I’ve been in post here. I could just be very unobservant, mind. Still I think we can say with confidence that this is a pretty uncommon event; from now until December 31st, 2019, you’re able to get 25% off JTS digital titles via their store.
This is to celebrate the ‘online community’ and their role in keeping the niche alive. Now, JTS seem to be announcing this discount on the quiet, as so far I’ve only found it on two facebook groups - the ‘HPS and John Tiller Computer Wargames’ group and the ‘JTS Wargame Opponent’ group. The post on the latter is a bit more clear and can be read here.
I actually got the news myself from the Grogheads forum, and there was some confusion initially as the sale doesn’t seem to be advertised on the main site in a way that’s obvious. Someone on that thread mentioned they found out about it on another forum. Further to that, I’ve actually tested it, so we’re pretty sure this is real. Here’s the full text from the Facebook post for context, posted by Rich Hamilton:
All, linked below you will find a discount link to the JTS Store. This is being created specifically to recognize the On-line community and the guys who keep it active. This can be shared in other On-line clubs as well, and I'll share it in the few I have access to. I'm not sending it out in a mass mailing...
It will give you a 25% discount on any sized order from our store. It can only be used once per customer and it expires on 12/31/2019.
You can also simply enter the discount code On-line at check out and the discount will be taken.
Enjoy, and thanks for your activity in the On-line community. Hope everyone has a good holiday season.
The link above works fine. All you need to do is:
- Click on the link above from the post.
- Add what games you want to the basket, then click ‘Checkout’.
- In the basket view, click ‘Proceed to Checkout’.
- On the next screen, you should see the discount automatically applied.
Here’s a screen taken from me during my testing, so you can see what it should look like:
As mentioned, the code can be entered manually as well by typing in the code ‘On-Line’ into the discount field.
DO NOT CHECK OUT VIA PAYPAL. As far as I know the discount doesn’t work via PayPal, I did some cautious testing (as I didn’t want to actually buy anything) and there was nothing in the PayPal interface that suggested the money was going to get taken off.
So there you go - cheap(er) JTS games, just in time for Christmas!
