Couple of Quick Questions

I have just a couple of simple questions that I know you all know the answer to.

1. I had a show today and one of the guests ordered the oven mitt that is going to be discontinued. Problem is, the host may not close the show until March 3rd. If she does, can I still order the oven mitt since it was really a February show? (if not I have other shows I can add it to)

2. I know the hostess can get the cutting board for free with a purchase of $50, but does it matter where that $50 comes from? Does that include half price and hostess specials, or does it have to be $50 that she spends with her hostess discount?

Thanks everyone!

You can still order the discontinued items...

1. The date the show was held is what matters. I think you have until the end of the next month (ex: end of March for February show). You would have to be sure the entire show is for February and no new products are ordered from the new catalog. It's either one or the other, not both.

2. I always put the guest special on the hostess' order when it totals over $50 (not including tax), even if the $50 is from 1/2 price and hostess specials. I believe it's appropriate. If it's not, will someone please clarify? Thanks!


guest special for host

I asked my Director about this and she told me that you're not supposed to add the guest special unless the host total is over $50 after the percentage discount. That the half price items don't count toward the $50 because that's a double promo.

If that's wrong, let me know.

When I e-mailed PC with this question my answer was the hosts are not entitled to the guest special no matter what. I thought that was fishy, so I kept asking and above is what my Director told me.

I have always added the guest special to the host's order as long as she spent $50 or more out of her own pocket. I've never had a problem with that; the item has always been in the order.
