Pampered Chef: Host Coaching Quick question

    Hi i have posted a few question here and there but this just came to mind. Is it ok to order things at a hostess's party to help bump up sales? At one party i misjudged the free product value and ordered something just so she would get what i told her she would get. Is it ok to do things like this? thanks in advance for the feedback i know i will get.

    I have done it. I don't know if it is something we are particularly supposed to do, but I have. :)

    If I have any individual orders coming in, I'll try to add it to a show where the host is almost at the next level. We're not supposed to order stuff in our names, but from time to time, I'll do an order in my mom's name or something like that. Sometimes it's worth it for US to get to the next commission level or to earn some type of incentive, too.

    I do this too. I usually put it in my Step Mom's name. Usually I only do this for host I know personally.

    It depends on how much they need to be bumped up. If it is only a few dollars then I will order a few paring knives or citrus peelers and then I can use them as door prizes. I have ordered the small microcooker or small bar board when they were less than 10$ away. Usually if you tell the hosts how close they are to free product they will find another order to bump them up.

    Just want to clarify my original statement. When I do this, it is only when I know the Host. And I add it to a guests order that I know very well. I do not put in my own name. :)
