    Please tell me what code to use in Pampered Partner to purchase "gift certificates" for "guests"... I have a catalog show order and can't figure it out.

    Thank you!

    no code

    I don't believe you enter a code since there is a button right next to payment information labeled gift certificates. I haven't entered one yet, but it looks like you just put all the info in there. Good luck!

    I have

    I have done many gift certificates via Pampered Partner. As stated above, use the gift certificate button. This will allow you to type in the quantity, dollar value, recepient information, personal message etc.

    When you use the button, it automatically enters the # for you.

    I don't believe you can USE a gift certificate through pampered partner b/c they must be redeemed through www.pamperedchef.com. I could be wrong though, this is just my understanding

    You may only redeem gift certificates via the www.pamperedchef.com or by calling the number on the gift certificate. I just had a host who used to sell pc come unglued because one of her customers wanted to use a gift cert. She said that she did it all the time when she sold PC. I checked with my director and recipe for success we can only reedeem in two ways via internet or home office. So I sent a note to my down line letting them know, so an incident like this wouldn't happen. The problem is, the consultant who sells the gift cert. gets the commission, and the person who redeems the gift cert. can't get commission also because that would be double dipping. I hope this makes since. I just started rambling. Amanda :)

    When someone orders a GC at a Show do they need to fill out a form, or can they just tell you who they want it to go to, the message, etc. I have the form I got with my Starter Kit. Should I just use that as an example? I wouldn't think I would need to fill that out if I'm using Pampered Partner. I've never done one before!

  8. Gift Certificate

    According to Success... if using Pampered Partner, the forms do not have to be filled out for gift certificates.

    My question about gift certificates is can someone purchase a large gift certificate and then get the guest special for the month, or does it have to be products that are purchased. I am entering my first show this week, and didn't know how that works. thanks.

    Good Question Starla! I have a show tonight and I'm really going to try and push GC's. So of course, I'm reading up on them from this lovely board so I'm more knowledgeable about them. I really never thought about your question until now! Thanks! I hope someone answers soon! :)

    If someone orders a $50 gift certificate or more, they can earn the guest special. However, once you enter the guest special into PP, you'll notice that it then will charge them $3.50 for shipping for the free item. It's because there would normally be no shipping fee for buying gift certificates because it comes out of the gift certificate itself. So, who knows it would be worth it. I suppose since it's a bigger value for the free item itself than $3.50.

    I have a customer who wants to use a $20 gift certificate towards a $35 product.... can I do this through my pamperedPartner and earn the $15 sale difference?

    Thanks!

    No

    Susan,

    Is this an official Gift Certificate? If it is the answer is no. :( We are not able to redeem gift certificates. The Home Office takes care of this.

    I just called and you are right there is no way for us to do it ourselves ~ which I hate. Wish they would change that "rule".
