Anyone do layaways?

Does anyone out there do "layaway plans"? My director first told our cluster about a cookware layaway, where you take the full cost (product cost, s/h, tax) of a set of cookware and split into 3 or 4 months (one payment per month) and then when all payments are received, you can put it in as a show in itself, as all the cookware sets are over $150. My recruiter has started to do layaways that are composed of whatever the customer wants, as long as it's over $150.. has anyone done this? And what are your results with it? I've mentioned the idea to one of my current hosts and she was psyched and said she wanted to do the cookware layaway.. I think I'm going to tell her that she should start it soon if she wants the best deal--she can set aside the payments as soon as possible, and then close it out in Feb to get 60% off an open stock pc of cookware.. She's a single gal, but she LOVES PC and has a slight addiction problem.. :)

Anyway, I'm rambling.. Thanks in advance for all of your replies.. I know it takes time to post replies on here, and I appreciate all of your help. God bless you all.

I think it's a great idea! I would have loved to do that before becoming a consultant. It's a really great idea! Thanks so much for sharing it!

That's a great idea! Do you know if she gives the customer any kind of paperwork or receipt with each monthly payment that is made?

WOW - cool idea Amanda - that would be a good thing to put under the news portion of our website...just need to figure out exactly how to get started and get the word out! If anyone post this on their website, please share your wording and what you did... :eek:
