Hey guys – I need help ASAP with a bridal shower I need to submit Monday by midnight (along with my taxes – LOL)! 2 people gave money for the bride to use as a gift card (1 was $50 and the other is $80 for a total of $130) I put them in as gift certificates since she didn’t have anything left on her wish list (the people who gave them to her said that would be fine). With the $130 in as gift certificates that makes the guest sales be $723.25 so she would get $140 in free product, 3 items at ½ price and anything else at 25% off. Well she gave me her order for what she wanted and she wants the food chopper, US&G & Exec 7 piece cookware (pan o rama points!) set as her 3 ½ price items and then she wants the medium bowls and the coffee & more cups. When she emailed me back she put the total as $264.02 (which includes tax). Well I tried to call her tonight and was unsuccessful in that dept and her mom was a you know what on the phone to me (super extremely rude). I asked when would be a good time to call her tomorrow and she said she works so I asked for a work number and she said “no”. The bride does have a cell phone so I then called that and left her a message to call me. I am assuming she is thinking that she can use the $130 in gift certificates with the $140 in free product to pay for the 2 items and the 3 half price items. I DO NOT want to lose that $130 in gift certificates from commissionable sales (if she would use them on her order). This is my first bridal shower and I am doing it where my friend that was the hostess is a co-host. Please advise in how to handle this. The bride does have email but I am not sure how good she is about checking it and I want to be sure to reach her tomorrow and get this settled and plus I am not sure what to say in the email. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
