I’m having the same problem. This is with Catalog Promotions.

Create a promotion, apply it, and it works fine.  All of the correct prices show everywhere. But is doesn’t “stick.” It will stay a day or maybe 2 and everything goes back to regular prices.

Any clues?

Hi I have been through the Wiki and need to know where I need to set up the cron job for the promotion rule to work. I don’t see in:

app/code/core/Mage/

which folder to select to set up the cron job. Also I have no idea what function put in between the <run><model></model></run> tags.

Can someone please post explicit directions on how to set up the cron job specifically for shopping cart and price rules?  Your help is much appreciated.
