Earning Host Rewards & the HOST CODE

You can find the Stampin' Up! HOST REWARDS in every catalog ( see page 90 in the new MINI catalog).  They are available when an order is $150 or more (10%, or at least $15, for you to spend).  They are a 'reward' for a host of a party, stamp club order or personal order with friends.  There is a % chart in the back of every catalog that will allow you to determine the amount of your reward and/or the information will be on the online order.


If you are placing an online order of $25.00-$149.00 please use the current HOST CODE (it changes every month).  The Host code is for me to give my ONLINE customers a little something extra as a THANK YOU at the end of the month ~ a surprise in your mail box!  Let me know if you have any questions and know that I appreciate all of your orders!

In November Lea Ann placed an order online over $50.  I sent her a thank you with an embellishment surprise.  She texted me this week ~ "OMG!  Your thank you gift was perfect timing!  I used the rest of my red dots this year on my Christmas cards.  I have started working on next year's cards.  These beautiful red rhinestones will be perfect.  Thank you!"



Order online to have your order sent directly to you ~ shop with the cute cat on the right side of my blog!  If your order is under $150 use my December HOST CODE (CAWNHZ67) to receive a lovely thank you sent directly to you ~ snail mail!  If your order is over $150 you will receive host benefits from Stampin' Up!  Free Shipping is for ONE DAY only ~ call me (757-641-9354) if you have any questions.

Good Questions from Jan......


Below is an email that I received from my friend Jan ~ a lovely stamper who lives in Yorktown.  She has lots of questions about the START WITH SAVINGS kit promotion that started this morning.  I thought some others may have similar questions so I would answer here.

Good morning.

Is this the 20% discount you mentioned in your note?  Yes, all demonstrators receive a 20% discount on orders they place for themselves or for friends/family.

Give me the details please.

Is it a set kit of products, or do I choose anything I want just like a regular order?  YOU choose anything that you want for your Starter Kit.  You choose $125 worth of Stampin' Up! products and pay only $79.

Are there required products I have to include?  There are no required products (unlike when I joined!).

Do I have to become a demonstrator and do a set number of classes or workshops?  When you order your Starter Kit you will become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator but there is no requirement about classes or workshops.  To remain a demonstrator we are all required to order product worth $300 (retail) every quarter (but, subtract $60 for your 20% discount).  Many paper crafters join for the discount to support their creative hobby!

Will there be monthly or yearly required purchases or is it a one and done?  Jan, by signing up now you will not be obligated to the $300/quarterly purchase until the end of March 2022.

If I decide to do it, do I sign up on line listing you as my demonstrator or do I sign up through you?   At the top of this blog is a category JOIN THE FUN which is a link for you to sign up as a demonstrator ~ you can do it all online.  It isn't necessary for you to come to the Cat/Art Studio ~ although you are welcome anytime!!!

In future orders do I still list you as my demonstrator so you get credit and I get the 20% discount??  ALL of your orders from the minute you become a demonstrator are credited to YOU!  That is how you comfortably meet the $300/quarter requirement.  However, if you do not meet that requirement you can make up the missing amount or drop as a demonstrator without any consequences!  I would love to have you join my team ~ Southern Stars!

So many questions, lol
