    I heard that shipping has gone up for us consultants, but did it also go up for our customers? Didn't it just go up with this past catalog from 3.25 to 3.50. What is it going to be now?... $4.00?????

    I can't remember exactly when it went from $3.25 to $3.50. It MAY have been a year ago, but everything runs together for me. I just got the new products and the changeover kit today and, yes, the new order forms charges $4.00 for shipping and handling. It is kind of a bummer, especially when guests have small orders. Considering a lot of guests try to strive for that $50 order when there is that monthly guest special of a free product with $50 order, it's less than 10% of their order in that situation. It is a bummer for guests who only have a $10 or less order. But, it's not totally unexpected given that postal rates just went up! That would be the way I'd approach it with customers if the issue comes up.

    It is still pretty much a bargain. I tell my guests that cringe at the shipping that any other catalog you would order out of would be atleast $6.00.

    That's a great point. Plus with our products, you can TRY before you BUY at Cooking Shows and you can't do that out of catalogs! :)

    In April the sales for a free gift are going up for guests. They now have to buy 60.00 in product to get the free gift.
