    I just had an interesting phone call... Someone from H.O. just called to remind me that I had achieved 1/2 off conference registration with my sales in April.

    Love that they are looking out for us! Unfortunately, I can't attend conference, but I think it's cool that they're calling people!

    Wish you could "gift" it to someone. Do you think it will show up on your taxes if you don't use it? It would be great to be able to give that to downline or upline .................or me!

    I don't know! I never thought about the taxes portion of it. I wouldn't think that it would, but you never know.

    I wish that I could gift it to someone! I would definitely do it!

    I got a call today today and she asked why I hadn't registered yet (earned 1/2 price too) and I told her travel expenses.....and there are a few other things too.

    IMO registration is way down this year and they are trying to make their budget. half of my clustermates who went last year (including me) are not going this year for various reasons, including money.

    i know i'm being a downer - i think it's not very cool to encourage people to go into debt by, all of a sudden, announcing that we can put reg on our personal credit cards.

    i had fun last year, my first year in PC, but truly the only thing i am using to this day is the feeding america clip. when i'm ready to leverage the time and expense to improve my business, i'll go.

    yeah, I'm not a fan of encouraging consultants to go into debt.

    well my debit card is my credit card. That's all I have!

    Don't think they are encouraging people to go into debt. Just trying to make it easier if one wanted to go. It's a personal choice whether they used their debit card/credit card/ or PC debit. Still came out of their pocket somehow. PC wants everyone to be able to go that wants to. Just trying to help with more solutions!

    I don't think they are encouraging people to go into debt - just making life a little easier. In my case, I only use my PC account for shows. I deposit the checks from my shows and use my pc debit card to submit online. I don't keep much extra cash in there - maybe $30 in case a check doesn't clear. We are military so we move every couple of years but our main bank doesn't. It's in Texas - I'm in New Jersey. For me to register with my debit card I would have to go to an ATM to make a withdrawl, then to my PC bank to deposit before I registered. This is just way easier. My commission and my husbands pay are both direct deposited into that bank in Texas. It would have been a hassle to have had to register using my PC debit card.

    Bet you're right! Best bank ever! Took us a few years in to find it but so much better than those on post banks it's not even funny.
