    I just ordered my new stuff on the 26th, the day it was first available, and it hasn't even shipped yet. Has to be someone that has earned the Sell-A-Thon, or a consultant sold it to someone to sell on Ebay.

    He's got the sweetheart towels on there as well - you can't even buy those! He has got to be getting these from a consultant. :mad:

  10. I asked them a similar question...I said "Do your Pampered Chef items come with the warranty? I don't expect I'll have to use it, but just in case. Thank you for your time!"

    They replied "i don't sell them with any guaranteed warranty, however if there's a problem, i can usually do something, as long as i get the defected product back and it's within the pc warranty. i do offer shipping insurance, if anything is lost or damaged in the mail. thanks for asking"

    I'm such a dork!!! :eek: I said I ordered my Spring stuff on the 26th and I meant to say the 24th!! Anyway, I think that is the first day it was available to us for sale. I looked just now, and it looks like it did ship out sometime yesterday. I has to be someone that earned the Sell-A-Thon or possibly a Director doing it. They could have sold it to somone they know, or it could even be their husband for all we know!! Kind of makes you wonder since he said he could replace something if they mailed it back. He must have fairly close contact with the consultant.

    Here's the reply I got

    no you only get the pampered chef warranty if you buy directly from them, however, if you have a problem, reasonably soon after the purchase i'm sure i could do something. thanks for asking


    So he could 'do something'? Give me a break!!

  13. I also sent an email bragging on how I loved the product and asked if he had a catalog that he could send and asked about the warranty also. This is not fair when people are doing this as some of us are playing by the rules and struggling to get sales.

  15. No but, I doubt that he will. There was another person that was selling the scraper. I emailed her and she got back with me stating that she was selling it for a friend that was a director and is going out of the business. I sent a list to HO with several names. By looking at several peoples id history they have been selling pc on ebay for quite awhile. I wonder if the HO will follow up or not. :mad:

    Probably a Director

    Many Director's get two full sets of products, and unfortionately they will place the full set on E-bay or something like it. :mad: They usually give the products to a "friend" to sell. There is nothing the company can do about this unfortionately! :(

  17. here is the response that I got back from the catalog request:
    Response from michael32785
    Item: **BRAND NEW!!** PAMPERED CHEF ICE CREAM DIPPER **WOW!** (4436189702)
    This message was sent while the listing was active.
    michael32785 is the seller.



    I GET MY STUFF FROM A FRIEND THAT SELLS, TO HELP HER SALES OUT, SO I DON'T HAVE ANY CATALOGS, AND SINCE YOU'RE NOT BUYING FROM PC DIRECTLY I CAN'T GUARANTEE THEIR WARRANTY, HOWEVER IF SOMETHING IS WRONG WITHIN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME I CAN USUALLY DO SOMETHING FOR YOU. THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST

  20. I as well checked this out. I also emailed them and asked how they feel about selling things as such..........I said it is a breech in the contract they signed when they became a consultant. I flat out asked if Pampered Chef has contacted them yet? ( I have not gotten a response)

    This has got to be a consultant.....by the response they gave Misty.......I'm guessing it a husband selling for his wife....

    Who knows.......but it has to be Sell A thon products or things received as a director...........second thought, maybe it is a director........I got 2 of some things.........I give the seconds away as prizes..............but as we can see maybe others don't do that.

    Who knows!!

    na, na, na.....another one bites the dust!!!!!!!! Doing the happy dance here :D Just clicked the link I'd added and nothing (0 items for sale) then searched PC stuff, then searched PC towels (since he had the tattersall towels and the new microfiber spring colored towels and NADA baby!!!!!!)

    WOOHOOOOOOOO

    I'm not ignorant enough to think this will actually STOP him or others but it will/is hindering...and that's good enough for me ('til HO gets involved)

    sorry for the ramble, delirious with joy here!!! :D

    It also says he is no longer a registered user - either HO got to 'him' or his 'friend' other wise he got nervous from all of your inquiries and 'split'!! :D

    Way to Go!!! :) :) :) :) Hopefully this is the end of his PC Ebay career!!

  25. Thanks for the update

    Yes that person is gone........not a registered user......

    As you'll see from my earlier post, I had written to them........finally got a response.....this is it..

    "i'm not a consultant, i sell this stuff for a friend to help her sales. that's not against any rules that i know of. "

    Well.......I think all of this just shows.....maybe they really were a consultant..........somebody got scared!!! :D

    Way to go gang!!!!!!

  26. HO is all over this

    michael32785 and coco2640 are both "no longer a registered users" now. P.C. is all over this I think. ed7136 is selling executive cookware and the balloon whisk and I bet he'll be off eBay soon too. Watching over eBay is probably a pretty daunting task but I bet HO has been waiting to pounce on the new Spring products.

    This one has a flippin' STORE and has both PC and Tastefully Simple products for sale. NO auction, just BUY it now stuff. I just emailed her telling her I'd like to purchase the springform pan and does it come with the regular PC warranty and could she send me a catelog when she ships the item! :mad:

    I totally understand the frustration of seeing PC on ebay, but wouldn't it be better to let HO know and let them take care of it, without us baiting the sellers with questions?

    ITA agree. It's such an expenditure of negative energy to be looking up and reporting these people. While it does appear that the reports of these folks from consultants here may have shut them down, I'm not going to use my time tracking them down.

    I'd rather be making Customer Care calls to keep building my business!

    While I understand and respect your opinions Wendy and Debbie, I see no problem with surfing EBay late at night when I'm the only one awake in the house. I also don't see it as 'baiting' the seller by asking questions. They're gonna answer how they're gonna answer. It just amuses me to no end HOW they answer. And of course I do report all to HO. I don't feel that's it's an "expenditure of negative energy" whatsoever, but again, each to his own.

    As far as CCC to build my business, who says I'm not doing that as well? I just don't make them late at night when I sit and 'surf the web'!!!!!!! I will continue to do so, regardless of other's opinions but will apologize right now if I offended you ladies or others. In my opinion another set of eyes doesn't hurt.

    LOL Debbie, I know EXACTLY what you mean. I used to run a home daycare for 10 years and had 5 under the age of 5 all day. They were a piece of cake compared to my own little 'darlin' after they all left ;)

    I think that's why I've become a night owl.....peace AND quiet LOL

    I'm not offended, either, Jodi. Unfortunately, products on ebay is always going to be a problem. There was a thread almost identical to this one when the new Fall 05 products first started getting to directors. I was not on Chef Success when last year's Spring/Summer products were released, but I would bet there was a thread about products showing up on ebay then, too.

    I really do see your perspective on this; I hope I didn't come across otherwise. If asking the sellers questions cracks you up, then by all means go for it :p The Fall ebay thing had me nuts for days (because it was my first changeover). It is so WRONG, how can they LIVE with themselves, who is supplying them with the stuff, how can S/HE sleep at night? etc. LOL

    I can SOOOO relate to this. My son was an ANGEL! I never even had to baby proof! He just didn't get into things! The 2 times he did was in the same day and we just told him that he shouldn't do that and he never did it again! Our daughter is 16mos and LORD HAVE MERCY is that child a handful! She is constantly into stuff! :mad: If I go to the bathroom by myself, by the time I get out she'll be on the Kitchen table or the counters. I actually caught her pushing a chair to the counter and trying to climb up on them! :eek: She saw me do it one day! :rolleyes:

    This message was sent while the listing was active.
    maymar1914 is the seller.

    I will not be able to extend the warranty on the items, since I do have a way to replace them. If you need to send them back to the company, you can just mail them back, to them directly, with a letter saying your received them as a gift.

    New Spring Items

    I couldn't find the new items on e-bay...I guess they were taken off. Someone probably got scared. I got all my new items a few weeks ago. They are great! I can't believe someone would step so low as to put them on e-bay!
     
Have something to add?
