Is it just me, or are the prices on Outlet items alot higher than they used to be? It seems that the mark down is barely 20-25%. You might find one or two items in the 50% category. You used to be able to get some great bargains and deals, but now I barely sell anything on the outlet, and I certainly am not to keen on the prices myself.

Just a mini-rant. No one else would understand my PC issues. :)

Yes, they are higher. My understanding is that they raised the prices because these items can now be purchased on party orders -- so they count toward the Guest Sales and from there, they increase the Host Benefits. Long story short, they "need" the increases to help cover Host Benefits.

AHHH.. I wasn't aware of that. I've been so out of the PC world for the last several years. I'm barely a consultant. I've toyed with the idea of dropping it altogether, but then folks order from my website all in the same month and restart my clock all over again. :) Anyway- I hadn't heard that new addition. But still seems to me that yes, they need to offset the benefits, but the outlet is to get rid of stuff. WIth those prices, not likely going to happen as quickly. Oh well, what do I know? :D
