Half Price Combination Change??

I haven't seen anyone mention it yet but I was just going through the catalog and realized that the host half price combination list has the classic scraper collection replacing the SA Dots Set. I've had a few hosts pick up on that special. I just think it's kind of a bummer.

And while I am at it....I have to say I love the new layout of the catalog. I think it's so much more professional and oh my goodness I don't need a magnifying glass to read the warranty on an item LOL

Oooh, I just noticed the stones went up in price too. All except for the DCB. Going to have to see what else has changed LOL

I'm definitely pushing the stoneware special, especially with the pieces going up about $2.00 a piece.

I agree with the half price special - scrapers. Most of my hosts already own the scrapers and will use the half price item for something else. I was hoping they'd bring back the DCB with the two potholders!

The spatula set was out a few years ago as a half price combo. I sold several like that but have never sold a single dots set. I just had a few people ask about getting them as a set!

I think the Scrapers are a much better option. Gives them an affordable choice and I have yet to have anyone buy anything with the dots pattern on it. Solid SA yes, dots no. I agree there should be an option with the DCB but I would suggest the Oven pads instead of Mits. I have both but unless you are Jolly Green Giant the mits are way too big and cumbersome. I am in LOVE with the pads though and have been selling them well at my shows (and I do take both pads and mits). They could have even made a combo with the RUFTH Trivet or Silicone Trivet.

I say ADIOS dots :)

Love, love, love the new catalog. It should be really easy for everyone to find what they're looking for. Plus, with 6 recipes people should be more anxious to hold onto them.

I wasn't disappointed in the half-price change. I'll be letting my people know so that if they want to take advantage of the Dots one they can. (Melissa, I have lots of customers who LOVE the Dots. It's funny to see what works in different areas. ) But, I think the Scraper Collection is a little more practical for most of my customers.

They can still get the 16-piece set (4 place settings) as a half price item.

HO changes things up so that repeat hosts don't have to pick from the same list every time they host.

Understood and agree! I'm sure many consultants sell items such as Herb Keepers, Salad Spinners, Bamboo Towels, Window Pane Placemats, Mix 'N Pour, and dots wine glasses etc. If we took all of those out of the catalogs it seems like my guests wouldn't even notice as they don't purchase them. Each area I'm sure is quite different. But for my two cents, I could easily say adios dots. Wouldn't hurt my feelings nor my sales. ;)

I have quite a few repeat hosts who adore the dots. Yes, they can get the 16 piece at half price but the combo made it even a better deal. And if they are repeat hosts they more likely than not have the scraper collection already LOL Again just my two cents for all it's worth LOL

Heidi - I'm sure there will be a Simple Additions host special again before Christmas, and that will be an even better deal for you.

As for the scrapers, this is the single BIGGEST request I get from hosts, customers, etc. is if they can buy the scraper "set". It was a great booking tool when it was a choice and will be again. I have sold a couple dots host sets, but really only 2 probably.

I agree with Ann that they have to mix things up a bit for repeat hosts and with Rae that there has to be a lower price point option.

That makes me feel better.. I thought it looked kinda skimpy for that amount... maybe it will be a big seller.

Very good point.

Personally I am not going to point out that the stoneware is going up. I am promoting the sale but from experience 99% of people don't notice a price change unless they have an older book.
