With the debut of the new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog Stampin’ Up! have reconfigured the Hostess Benefits…
Why? To give you WAY more choice and flexibility when choosing your freebies…
What’s the change? Instead of choosing a Level 1, 2 or 3 stamp set and an amount to spend on free merchandise you will now be given Hostess Dollars
How do you use Hostess Dollars? Like cash – you use them to ‘purchase‘ your free items
What items can you choose to spend your free Hostess Dollars on? Hostess items and/or ANY regular catalog merchandise of your choice!
There is still a selection of ‘exclusive’ hostess stamp sets & items that you can find on pgs 10-15 of the catalog…BUT the Levels have GONE and they are ALL now available to EVERYONE!
The most ‘expensive’ Hostess set which would have been a Level 3 value set – Happiest Birthday Wishes – ‘costs‘ 21 Hostess Dollars – now when you spend $150 you would receive $25 in Hostess Dollars meaning you could get a set like this – cool, eh?
Here is the new table of benefits – when you spend:
- $150 you get $25 in hostess dollars
- $200 you get $30 in hostess dollars
- $250 you get $40 in hostess dollars
- $300 you get $50 in hostess dollars
- $400 you get $65 in hostess dollars PLUS ANY ONE ITEM IN THE CATALOG AT 50% OFF!
- $500 you get $80 in hostess dollars PLUS ANY TWO ITEMS IN THE CATALOG AT 50% OFF!
- $750 you get $120 in hostess dollars PLUS ANY THREE ITEMS IN THE CATALOG AT 50% OFF!
- $1000+ you get $160 + 15% OF AMOUNT OVER $1000 in hostess dollars PLUS ANY FOUR ITEMS IN THE CATALOG AT 50% OFF!
REMEMBER – if you are planning to place a new catalog order of $400 or more make your list and keep that most expensive item on it for the end of the order when it will ask you to enter your 1/2 price item – smart shopping will save you lots of money – you could get a Big Shot or pack of Marvelous Markers for half price!!!
Here are the FAQs:
- you will now receive Hostess $$$ on your orders over $150+
- you have the choice to use these hostess $$$ to ‘purchase’ hostess items AND/OR absolutely ANYTHING in the new catalog
- on orders of $400+ you ALSO get to choose item(s) from the catalog at 50% OFF!
