Pampered Chef: Past Host Discount- How it works for another show she's hosting?

    I'm not sure where to post this question, but my friend who hosted my very first Kitchen Show is wanting to do another show in August to get a piece of the SS Cookware. But she just moved and the house has been (in her words) "a money pit", so she doesn't want to spend any more than she has to out of pocket- and is trying to capitalize on the benefits as much as possible. :D Understandable! (I'll coach her much better this time to get more people at her show than the last time!)

    The question I wasn't able to answer pertains to the Past Host Discount. Her's doesn't expire until September.....can the PHD be used on anything she buys as a Host of a current show? I was playing around with it for my Mother-inlaws show since she has a PHD also, but it says "Past Host Discount - not applicable". I see P&P says you can't use PHD on a Monthly Host Special, but wasn't sure if it would go against anything else....I'm guessing 'no', based on what I see so far??

    But I could have sworn others talked about it at one time being able to do that. SO i thought I'd check with all of you.

    Thanks!

    No, you can't use the PHD when you are the host. The host benefits trump the phd benefits.

    No, it can't be applied to anything she purchases as the host (she will get a better discount anyway). She can place a "guest" order and use it as the guest, though. But again, her host discount will be better than the 10%, so not sure if she'd want to even do that.

    The only reason she might want to do that was if she was very close to the next $100 level.

    That's what I thought. She was trying to see if she could "stack" her benefits. I knew she couldn't stack Host Benefits- like using FPV to pay for the other half of the half-price or the monthly host special item, but I wasn't so sure about the PHD.

    Thanks for clearing that up! :D

    Yep, that's the only time I've had that happen.
