Pampered Chef: Monthly bonus ???s

  1. I am starting as a consultant... My recruiter is out
    of town so I have no one to ask my question to.
    Please help!!

    I am signing my consultant agreement this week. I
    hosted a show last week with $500 sales... I am really
    wanting to maximize my free and half price products to
    get the best assortment of show products I can.
    Anyway...Can anyone tell me about the changes to the
    SS monthly bonus program. I really don't want to buy
    items that I have a good chance of earning in the next
    few months!!

    Are any of the product groupings from SS1 2 and 3
    staying the same??? What is different about the
    product groupings now????

    I have this wonderful brochure explaining the
    program... but it must be outdated now!!

    Thanks everyone!!

    All SS are changing.

    I spoke to someone from PC yesterday. If you earn a SS package in August, you will getting the Fall SS package not hte one listed on internet now. The SS package for first month is:
    round woven
    New inspirations cookbook
    bar pan
    small caddy with white simple additions bowls
    small saute pan

    I think someone had listed all the packages earlier. You get plenty of the new products within packages.

    Don't forget you can still order a spring/summer sample package.

    I signed July 8th and was told if you sign before the end of August then your SS bonuses would be the current ones even if you chose September as your SS1. The new bonuses are for those tht sign September 1st or later. I know that this is contradicting a pp but that's just what I was told. If anyone can clarify Please Do!

    I really like the current ones and my new recruit does too.

    I found this one a post under the Super starter Kit in the secention. This should help. :)

    I received an email from my upline director that stated this:
    Super Starter Bonus

    I just phoned FS to ask about the new SS program. As of August 1 anyone who earns a SS bonus will be awarded with the new program! So even if August is their 3rd SS month in the current program, they'll earn the new SS bonus.

    Thanks to Lisa Doughty,Sales Director/New Consultant Trainer, and Rhonda Feuer for sharing this information. I confirmed this information with Field Services. Doris Frame

    So, I guess they are going to get the new program as of Aug. 1st, no matter when they started or what month they are in.

    Not sure I agree with the decision, but I do like the new Bonus Program.

    NEW Super Starter Packages

    Go to Consultants Corner, Downloads, Super Starter Brochure. It's all there as a PDF file.

    Since you're not signed up yet and can't see it:), here's the first 3 months (not the Plus Bonuses)

    SS Month 1
    Round Woven Tray
    Small Bowls & Caddy
    Bar Pan
    Professional Small Sautee Pan
    Inspirations Cookbook

    SS MOnth 2
    4 Piece Colander & Bowl Set
    Ultimate Slice & Grate
    Smooth Edge Can Opener
    Citrus Press
    Large Serving Spatula

    SS Month 3
    Quick Stir Pitcher
    Chillzanne Rectangle Platter
    Meat Tenderizer
    Prep Bowls
    Stainless Steel Bowls

    FYI you can order a sample package of Spring/Summer 2005 products only through 8/15.

    For consultant agreements received after 8/1, you'll have until 2/2006 to order a sample package of Fall/Winter 2005/2006 products.

    For what it's worth, I think getting as much of the Simple Additions as possible is a great idea, especially at this time of year. We're moving into the fall/holiday selling season and it's great to be able to demo these pieces for entertaining. Also, a Family Size Skillet is a great investment (although you can earn that for FREE with your second recruit during your SS period) because then you can do the Pineapple Upside Cake, Harvest Apple Skillet Cake and all kinds of great desserts. Great way to showcase a piece of cookware in an "out of the ordinary" way!

    If you want to get a piece of cookware right away, like with host credits from your own show, I would get the 10 inch skillet - then when you get your second recruit during your first 3 months you can get the family skillet! You can make cakes and other recipes with it. It showcases the cookware nicely (it is the piece of cookware that they chose to put in the Hispanic Starter kit).

  7. Thanks for the info!!

    Thanks everyone for all the great advice!! Thanks Phyllis for the suggestion about making sure I have more immediate access to my director, etc. I am sure that my recruiter intends to give me all of this info... she's just simply out of touch right now!

    And I, of course, am this crazy TYPE-A planner sort of person that has to look at all the options, so this forum and all of the responses have been fantastically helpful!!!

    Thanks again for all the information!! If anyone has any further recommendations on what the best additional products are for selling... please let me know!! :D

    Family Size Skillet

    I think you can also get the Professional Family Size Skillet on a supply order at 50% off ($54.00). At least I think that's right...I'm new too! :D

    I thought I would let you know that I have the 10 inch skillet - prof. and gen. II and I love them both. I make all of the cake/brownie recipes in my 10 inch even though they are for the 12 inch skillet. What I do is use about 3/4 or so of the batter in the skillet and then make mini-cakes in the mini-muffin pan. The cakes turn out fine. When it gets close to the end of the cooking time according to the recipe, I watch it closely. Less batter means a little less cooking time. I do not need the 12 inch skillet, and it doesn't come with a lid. The 10 inch is plenty big enough for me and my family - there are 5 of us. Of course this is just a personal choice. You can order the 10 inch family size skillet for 1/2 price on the supply order form. Anyway, just my 2 cents worth.
