    From my understanding, Unity did away with the weekly sales. I wont miss those as much as the older 24 hour single asset sales we had before that. Those I miss. It was like a daily treat, although I didn't always have the cash when something I wanted popped up in them.

    I used to grab something weekly from the sales. eversince the sales went away I've been buying stuff from other vendor sales...
    What a shame. I hope they bring the weekly sales back.

    I was wondering this too. That was the only reason I went on there every day to see what was on sale. I spent way more money than I ever intended to. No more daily or weekly sales seems like a really, really bad idea to me. Without those sales going on I doubt as many people will visit the store every day to check what's on sale and therefore they will sell less assets and will make less money. I can't imagine it being a good thing.

    I too used to visit the store like clockwork every day. I always knew what time the switch to the next item happened, depending on my time zone and daylight savings etc. I have to believe they must have had a dramatic drop in traffic and sales. Now I only visit every week or so, just to see if they have brought the sales back.

    I liked the 24 hour sales better, but The weekly sales were nice too. I haven't bought a single thing since the sales ended... Seems once something starts growing they always get greedy... on well.

    I found this site which shows what is marked down or on sale in the asset store.
    https://www.assetstoresales.com

    Don't know why Unity doesn't help out the developers by advertising the sales anymore. But at least we can find them, and they are still there.

    I check that site at least daily and have bought quite a few things because of price drops and what not.

    I think they hope to gain subscriptors by offering discounted assets accordingly to their subscription plan... :( so, for subscriptors, all assets are discounted...

    My purchasing has dropped substantially since the sales have went away. I guess that's a good thing for me. :D

    My wife would divorce me if she knew how much I spent, lol. >_< I guess it's good that sales aren't toooo often. Then again, if they were, it would at least smooth out the pain instead of it being all at once.
