Pampered Chef: Sample Packages

  1. Can anyone post the sample packages and their cost for me? I am currently considered "inactive" since I haven't turned my shows in for this month yet and so I can't view the sample packages on CC. I was wondering how much I need to stash away to purchase the sample products.

    Thanks!

    As far as I know, the packages haven't been posted. We won't be able to purchase them until 8/3. As far as cost, I have some numbers, let me go get them...

    I think your SAT levels might be off a little. Check out CC and go to promos and click (over from June) "see what you earned" SAT levels. Hope this helps.

    Does anyone know if we will be able to purchase the open stock stainless saucepots as sample product? I know they aren't really "new" products, nor or they a part of the SAT groupings, so I just wondered if we would be able to purchase those at 50% on August 3rd.

    Looks like I'm going to have to get some things I don't really need in order to get what I was wanting. Oh well. I'll either keep them to have to show or give them as incentives or rewards.

    I don't think I'm getting the plates though...my plates and platter from last year are collecting dust.

    I'm sure that she meant our 'cost', as in the 1/2 price amount, not the full price for the customer. She has cost listed next to the other 1/2 price amounts.

    Is there a limit to open stock sample items we can order? I'd like to get more than one of the snowman plates so I can collect a set to use for parties.

    You can only get one of each item. Check with your clustermates to see if they wouldn't want it for themselves and would be willing to order it for you (with you paying them).

    Thank you so much for posting!! :)

    I was really going to try to get sample pack A this time around - and now I am glad to see it is only just above $100. Also, I really did not want the snowman plates and I was worried they would be in the Sample pack - so I am very happy to see they are open stock!! The LAST thing I need in this house are more plates :). So I am thrilled to see almost everything in A, I would probably buy at some point!

  36. Ok, CC says that mine shipped on July 19th, but I can't get it to show up on Fedex the way it was posted in another thread. So, I'm hoping for Monday.

    Can't wait to see and test drive all of my SAT goodies.

    The older I get, the less patient I am. I'm as bad as my 2 kiddos when they know they're going to get presents!

    You'll be able to order samples through P3, and you just enter PC$ as payment, just like a personal or supply order.

    I am a little disappointed with the packages but that is OK. Looks like I will be taking advantage of the open stock pieces. I really wanted the appetizer cookbook but I don't want what it comes with in the package.

    The packages are pretty much along the same lines as they have always been. Usually most of the products are grouped according to levels earned in SAT, and then a few open stock.

    Just know that's the way it is, and it will save you some disappointment.

    I will be purchasing the Snowman Plates, the Mesh Colanders, the Martini Glasses, and the Ice Bucket.
