    Okay so we were chatting about this in the chat box... So I looked it up.
    Page 21 of the May 09 CN says...
    https://www.pamperedchef.com/images/cc/us/pdf/may09_cn.pdf


    Staying active is important to growing your
    business! So, we’re offering a little encouragement.
    Starting in May, Consultants and Senior Consultants who
    submit $150 or more in sales for the month will receive a fun,
    motivational postcard from the Home Office. These cards will
    also provide a tip on how to keep your business active.
    Team Leaders and above, encourage your team members to stay
    active and qualify for these delightful and inspiring postcards!
    And if you receive a postcard for at least three months, you will
    also be eligible for an additional surprise!

    I love "additional surprises", I'm a consultant that has been active every month and just got my August postcard, just wondering if anyone has any clues?

    Hmmm, I think I received one post card since May, but have qualified May, June, and July, and I'm a Senior Consultant. Wonder why I didn't get other post cards, and if that makes a difference?

    I've got one every month. Personally, it's just a waste to me. It doesn't really inspire me.. The paycheck is my inspiration :)

    Do you think we had to hang on to them to get the surprise? I remember receiving 2 already but did not keep them.

    I remembered reading something about these, and didn't get one in May, and should have. I should have received one every month wonder what we'll get?

    I know I have been active every month since April and I believe I just got one the other day for my July sales (submitted on the 31st). So I have gotten them for all the 3 months. I too now wonder what the little additional surprise will be!!! My director doesn't do anything like these little postcards for being active.

    I tossed mine too. Hmmm ... Home Office would have the records, right?

    I'm such a pack-rat and I was so proud of myself for tossing these. Sigh

    I keep all forms of congratulations, including the little slips that come in my earned incentives. I haven't gotten my postcard for July yet, but I'll keep it when I get it. :)

  22. I only remember getting one of these, but have been active every month. Is there a place where we can check?

    I also hope we weren't suppose to hang on to these. I chunked mine after I read it.

    Nope! But I happened to be looking through the new career plan flip chart, and on page 9 it also says "The Pampered Chef will recognize Consultant and Senior Consultants who are active for three consecutive months!"

    Wondering if this recognition got forgotten? Or too many of us were active for 3 months in a row?

    I've received three postcards too but no surprises. I think they should save the postcard postage and just send us an email. Then they can use the money saved on postage for this "surprise" that's coming. I'm excited to see what it is!

    I just had a thought, I know that some have said that they didn't receive the 50 free receipts. Just wondering if there is a correlation between that and this surprise?

    I received my free receipts with my supply order. I like free stuff, but free receipts wouldn't be a very exciting incentive...lol. I keep racking my brain trying to figure it out. And, if they sent receipts I wouldn't complain...like I said, I like free stuff.

    That's just what I was going to say. Got my call too. (I really don't get too excited about those sort of things though. Now, if it was an in-person call, that'd be something else, but my sales weren't THAT good...Great for ME though. :D )

    I got home to my Mom saying, "I answered your phone for you because the caller ID said Pampered Chef and it was some advertisement call saying, 'Congratulations for having $150 in sales for 3 months in a row.'" (Said in a snotty voice...)

    So, I totally missed my call...my husband always lets the answering machine get it so I can hear it when I get home from work.
