    Just curious what (if anything), you are purchasing this month for Kit Enhancement month?

    I haven't decided, but my DH wants more prep bowls...he loves those things and I have to admit, so do I! When I first saw them (as a customer), I thought, what's the point, I can use any bowl, but these things are just too cute and versatile.

    I want to get a SA Stand and Appetizer plates, that I know.

    My director told me that it really isn't worth it to order from Kit Enhancement unless you have PC dollars. She said that she ran the figures and it was cheaper to just add whatever you want on a "co-host" (put your husband's name or something) order on one of your hosts' shows. You get her 30% off plus you get commission off of it, plus it adds to your career sales. It makes sense to me.

    That would be fine if it weren't against policy. However, it would be better to have a show and earn things for free or at a discount rather than using KE. I just want a few things right now, though.

    I am ordering a KE order, but P3 keeps giving me an error message saying it has to be April for me to order. Hello? Waiting for a response from HO. I sent an e-mail and I keep trying to place my order.

    You might want to tell your director that what she is advising you to do is against PC policy!:eek:

    Did you try to do an update before you put an order in?

    I have never used the KE either. Every month I have enough orders from family, friends and my BNI group to put together a show or two. Use the free product to supplement my kit and order whatever else.

    I am going a little crazy, but it is just so exciting to get stuff discounted. I make a lot of microwave cakes, so I want the woven round tray, and at the last cluster meeting they were raving about the carafe! Here is my list so far:

    2241 Pocket Thermometer 1
    2145 Woven Round Tray 1
    1625 Easy Clean® Kitchen Brush 1
    2216 Pampered Chef® Festive Holiday Desserts Recipe Collection 1
    2338 Square Slotted Spoon 1
    2622 Mini-Serving Spatula 1
    2051 Petite Squares-Cranberry (Set of 4) 1
    1126 Cheese Knife 1
    2291 Carafe 1
    1587 Stackable Cooling Rack 1
    1615 Handy Scraper 1
    1674 Bamboo Spoon Set 1
    2227 The Pampered Chef® 29 Minutes to Dinner Cookbook 1


    This list keeps changing over and over. I want the forged cutlery knife block set but that is too expensive...not enough PC dollars for that yet so that will have to wait.

    Kit Enhasncements are the opportunity to buy any item (one of each) up to $500 in value, for 40% off. It is a good way to get items at a discount and spend PC dollars (when you earn them).

    How odd! I guess I better be really smart. I can get as many different items up to $500, is that right?

    Thanks Holly! I can see you have your hands full with two little ones...God Bless! I've only got one, Harrison whose 4 but he had open heart surgery at 11 days old so he's a handful and a miracle all at the same time!

    I went a little nuts last year so this year I'm keeping it to practical stuff I wished I'd been able to bring to shows, like the medium round bowl, the ladle, and meat lifters. I am treating myself to the new 29 Minutes to Dinner book :)

    Against policy to co-host a show? Seems unreal since we can host a show any time ... but whatever. I rarely have a host with that high of a discount.

    Last year, when I had my PC dollars, I bought a family skillet and a few other small things, including some gifts, and some spices. Then I won the spree. There is really nothing I need now.

    This year I'm hosting my own show around that time and had to spend some money to make it qualify, so I stocked up on things that will sell easily at fairs, like mini serving spatulas and little paring knives plus spices.

    Times are really tight this year so I do not see myself buying anything, unless I get enough orders to do a drawing for my "Lordy Lordy" sale, which I do not anticipate. Or unless I hit an unexpected windfall and am able to buy a few more things to re-sell at fairs. Can't get more than one of anything, though, so that kind of defeats the purpose.

    Okay, so I am a new consultant and I am wondering if I can participate in KE (I have submitted my $1250 in sales, not sure if this matters or not) or do I have to wait until my fourth month? I am sure this has already been explained, but I am so confused........LOL! HELP PLEASE :):):) Thanks!

    I think it keeps you from adding your name to what ever party you want to and order from it.

    Kit Enhancement
    To place a Kit enhancement order submit your orders via
    PamperedPartner® Plus or send a sales receipt with payment
    to the Home Office.
    • All active and new Consultants may purchase products
    from the entire line at a 40% discount during Kit
    enhancement month, which occurs every year in April.
    • Consultants and Senior Consultants must be active
    for 3 consecutive months in order to submit a Kit
    enhancement order.

    • New Consultants are eligible for Kit enhancement in

    considered active.
    • Only one Kit enhancement order is allowed per
    Consultant during April.

    Here is what I got from HO regarding Kit Enhancement this year:

    Regarding Kit Enhancement, there is a transition plan in place for April 2009 Kit Enhancement. I’ve outlined the highlights below.

    Transition for active / inactive on April 1
    Any Consultant (of any level) who is active on April 1 (under the current career plan rules) will be eligible to place April kit enhancement orders, as well as personal orders and product samples.

    For April 2009 Kit Enhancement, the three consecutive months of activity requirement will be waived for these Consultants.

    Any Consultant (of any level) whose status is inactive on April 1 (under the current career plan rules) must first submit at least $150 in personal commissionable sales to become eligible to place personal orders or to purchase new product samples.

    For April 2009 Kit Enhancement, these Consultants must submit at least $150 in personal commissionable sales by April 25 in order to place an April Kit Enhancement order.

    Complete details, can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions document on the career plan page on Consultant’s Corner.

    Beyond the April 2009 Kit Enhancement month transition, New Consultants are eligible for Kit Enhancement in their fourth full month of business if they have been active in the three consecutive previous months.

    If they have been active in only the two previous months, they can submit $150 in personal commissionable sales in the fourth month, and then place a Kit Enhancement order.

    A Consultant is considered new in the month he/she joins or until $150 in commissionable sales is submitted, at which time they are considered active."

    Please Ignore. I just read the latest post.


    Please confirm. Kit Enhancement is this month (April) correct? What is the discount amount?

    It has been a while.
    Thanks,

    Yes it's this month and it's a 40% discount. Only one of anything and only up to $500 (for US consultants) or $750 (for Canadian consultants) retail before the discount.
