Pampered Chef: Sales September Guest Special Question

    Do past hosts get 10% off then 20% the selected guest special (or visa versa) or do they just get 20% off like everyone else?

    Also, do we make commission on those guest specials ordered?

    Yup, past hosts are basically getting those original stoneware pieces at 30% off (20% guest special and 10% past host discount).

    We earn commission on the 20% off price, not the full price. It will total correctly in your commissionable sales in P3.

    OOPS - Be careful! DO NOT TELL PAST HOSTS IT IS 30% OFF. It will not figure out correctly to them. I have had many check this math!!
    The Large Rectangle Baker is $38.
    At 30% or $11.40 off it is $26.60.
    The Special price of $30.40 - 3.04(10% PHD) = $27.36 This is the actual price your past hosts will pay. It is more expensive than 30% off. By $.76 but it is a challengable claim. I ended up eating about 30 of those differences once and that gets expenisive. $.76 times 30 = $22.80!

    Also remind the current Host that if she gets stoneware above her 60% off pieces, it is 20% off then less her discount she earns! As long as it is 49% or less, we earn commission on it!

    Thanks for reminding us of that John! I never thought of it that way!

    John is right--it's not 30% off.

    It's 10% off the 20% sale price.

    As Jane mentioned, the 20% off price also applies to the other host benefits--FPV, 1/2 price, and % discount.

    A September host can really clean up!

    It ends up being 28% off for past hosts. Thanks! I didnt realize the host gets that stoneware discount on top of all host benefits.

    I went into a Claire's Boutique once & they had a sale ... everything in the store was 50% off and then if you buy two items, the 2nd (cheaper) item is an additional 50% off. I took two $10 items to the counter. The sales clerk understood that the first item was $5 but it took her & 2 additional employees about 10 min's to believe me when I told them that the 2nd item was $2.50. They just couldn't grasp the concept of the 2nd discount. Most people do want to add them together but it doesn't work that way as pointed out by the previous posters. If it did, that 2nd item would have been FREE for me! LOL

    I agree. You add the 20% off item to everything else they are buying, do a subtotal & then take off their 10% past host discount. UNLESS they qualify for the booking benefit where they can get something at 60% off. ;)

    And the 20% off items are for ANYBODY who's ordering. No limits. Even the current host herself can order more stones. But if her show is high enough for her to have a 25%-30% discount she's obviously better going that route. I don't think that P3 will let you give her a 20% off stone & then take an additional % off with her host benefits. ;)

    Yes - it will. There is a special product # for the discounted product. When you enter this into P3 for the host - it automatically adds it as the discounted price, and then takes the additional host discount off that price. If you check it as a 1/2 off item - they get 1/2 off the 20% off price.

    I do this with hosts every time we have the stoneware sale. It works - and it's legal.

    Just so I understand, they do not have to order a minimum of $60 to receive this special. Basicly, this is just a sale off of certain bakeware.

    I have read the flier but I want to make sure I don't say it wrong and have to eat the cost.

    Yes, that is correct. There is no minimum purchase necessary to get the 20% off.
