Ever hopeful - cool & serve

I have started checking every day the sneaky way thru product adjustment to see if my Cool & Serve has shipped yet. Sigh...

I know, it says it will ship at the end of the month, but I'm hoping it will ship sooner. I know I should eat more fruits and veggies and exercise but it doesn't mean I do those things, either. Logic has no place in my head.

Anyone else obsessing with me? I would really love to have it in hand for the rest of my shows this month. Only have one June show booked so far.

I'm just hoping my two catalog shows pan out, and I actually earn the tray.

By the way, has anyone noticed it's now being called the Cool & Serve Square Tray? Sounds like there may be more options later.

I agree, Sarah. I predict a rectangular and round version in the future.

It wouldn't be surprising. If they've found a new vendor that makes this type of product, I'd be shocked if they didn't introduce similar "chill" products.

Would fundraiser shows count as a show too?

I didn't realize until earlier today that they weren't sending them until later this month! It's usually as earned. I was hoping to have it before next weekend for my niece's graduation.

Still nothing yet. My 2nd May show went in on the 6th. At least they finally are mostly caught up with shipping shows. Now they'll get slammed with all the shows submitted on the 15th and with it being the weekend won't even begin to start shipping those until the middle of next week. I hope they're ready for the slam of supply orders on Monday. Gotta get mine ready.

I have not done well with my past 2 shows of getting people excited about the new product. Not sure what I'm doing wrong... Would really love to have it in hand so they can play with it.

For those not familiar with tracking shipping on incentive products, they don't show under your regular Shipment Status. Go in as if you're making a product adjustment and you can't remember the show #. Select "find" for All show types. If there is a show # with a G after your consultant #, that's a consultant incentive shipment. Works for SAT, too.

I am waiting too! I am so excited. This was a very big MUST have for me. I use my PC products all the time but this will get used ALL THE TIME!!!
Thanks for the tip on how to look it up to see when it's shipped.

Just submitted #2 (had to spend some of my own money, but I bought a gift for an upcoming wedding--would rather have not paid full price, but it will all come out in the wash). Excited to get the new tray so I can show it off and sell MORE!

I submitted my 2 today and then took the flyer to a show I had this afternoon. I got TWO bookings for June just for this product! :thumbup:

I didn't earn this, but I did get to see it in person yesterday at director express! It is really nice. It is smaller than I was expecting, but still pretty nice. Everyone is going to love them. =)

Oh, I hope it is not too small. A lot of money if it is. So excited to get mine. Had a party last night and booked two shows for June - hoping to have a new product to show this group!

Maybe it holds more than it looks like but it seems small compared to what I was expecting. Don't get me wrong, I still really like it and want my own.

I am concerned about the green color though. I usually like green, but it doesn't go with everything. I bet it will be hit or miss with customers. I worry that it will become dated looking in time too.

I am not quite sold 100% myself on this new item... I'm not far off- maybe 90-92% I need to see it again and play with it some more. =)

I guess they chose the green color because it goes with the collapsible bowls and "going green"? And definitely get yourself sold on the product first. If you aren't excited about it, it's hard to sell it to others. I'll see when it comes - I really WANT to like it!

Plus, remember that we don't manufacture anything. Chances are good that the color wasn't chosen by PC.

Actually, I would bet the color WAS chosen by PC. They do have total control about the finished product. It matches our other outdoor things and I'm sure that's why it's the color it is.

I love the Green Color..I love green though.

I am so excited that I earned this. I had 3 fundraisers going on and I was able to get 2 of them to close so I am so happy about that.

I think that the food we put in this, on the green inserts is going to be beautiful! It will show off and the food will be the focus set off by the green beneath. Green is not my favorite color but I think that this is going to be super!

Couldn't you order it as a sample order and then you could have it before June so you could take it to shows and possibly get more sold or more bookings?

I believe the only way for a consultant to get this in May is to win it in the first 15 days with two shows.
