    Last year at conference, I know there were people who were buying surprise boxes for their friends back home.

    This year, I'm not going but I may be able to tell someone, "Pick up some surprise boxes for me!"

    Do I need to give them my TPC debit card? My consulant ID? Both?

    I did this last year and had someone order for me and will probably do it again this year if anyone is willing to.
    All they have to have is your consultant ID. Then it gets shipped to you and charged to your TPC debit card.

    They are our PC brown boxes already sealed & you buy them & they have discontinued products in them. Last year they had $10,15,25 & 50.00 boxes. Some had names like Memorabilia etc...they bring them over to these big tables & everyone opens them & If you want you swap with one another.

    Just curious, I doubt I am going to NC. After you open them, how do you get them home?

    Fedex is right there to ship it out for us. For some, the box arrives home before the person! lol Mine came about 5 days after I got home but it was christmas all over again. Of course I need to purge my closet so expect a list for sale soon! lol

    Another cool thing is that once you open and swap, you can consolidate the boxes to save shipping costs. The shipping comes out of your next paycheck.

    Ohhhh I like that! I am taking all cash with me to NC (no credit card at all and don't want to do the debit thing either)! That will be exciting! I am putting away $50 a week right now for expenses. I also am working on getting some clothes to wear!

    I bought some for my recruits last year. I only had to use their info including their debit card number. I even had them on the phone while I was swapping their stuff with other people. Their wanting me to do it again this year.

    Is the product value more than what it costs for the box? Like say you buy a $50 box, is the value of the products inside worth more than $50?

    Retail - yes.

    But since it's all discontinued stuff, I guess it's relative. If it ends up on the outlet at 70% off, then probably not.

    The best part of the suprise boxes is trading with everyone else. I traded for bread crocks and used them as host gifts. I get the personalized boxes to get totes and other items to give to my recruits.

    What a good idea bobby about getting the personalized boxes... When I went to national my 1st time they didn't have personialized boxes just the product boxes... I am so looking forward to getting some boxes this year :) Can't wait

    They save boxes aside for each wave ... you have to get there early.
     
Have something to add?
