Sale A Bration?
 
Hey demos, when is SAB? Does anyone know if there will be a special offer for sign up?

dmo 01-16-2013 10:04 PM

SAB runs Jan 22- March 22, this year. If you join during SAB you get 25% more in your starter kit. ($156.50 worth of product for $99.) Hope that helps.

EHeeger 01-16-2013 10:32 PM

Thank you, that's exactly what I was looking for. I gave up my demoship a two years ago due to finances but I've really missed it and am finally able to re-sign. I just wish I could get my old demo number back. :(

NWstamper 01-16-2013 10:58 PM

I didn't think there was a way to get your old number back, but then I had a downline resign and she implied that when she talked to DS before signing back up that there was a way to do it. So, you might try calling Demo Support to see. I think it involved mailing in paperwork instead of going through the online agreement but she opted not to bother with it so I don't know for sure how it works. :)

EHeeger 01-17-2013 07:39 AM

Thanks, I'll check into that.

I have two ladies resigning with this great deal. $156.50 for $99 that is pretty tempting.

Makalah 01-17-2013 09:00 PM

I may get my first downline thanks to SAB. Great for me but even more awesome for her, because she is sooo excited about doing it. :)

KarenBinPa 01-18-2013 05:52 AM

What do you get in your starter kit? It's already chosen for you, I guess, right?
Karen

Makalah 01-18-2013 06:03 AM

Nope, you pick out all of the contents from the annual or spring catalogs, online promos like single stamps, clearance rack, or even digital content for MDS2 software. you can grt $156.25 worth of rhinestones if that's what you really wanted. :)

Makalah 01-18-2013 06:05 AM

they give you a business supply pack in your kit with catalogs, informational materials, order forms, etc. too.

KarenBinPa 01-18-2013 07:02 AM

Does the 99 dollars count toward sale a bration rewards? (what is it, for every 50 dollars you spend, you get to choose something, I think)
Karen

KarenBinPa 01-18-2013 07:07 AM

I copied this from someone's blog:

Fill your Wish List! Imagine this! Save 30% on your first product order of $150 or more (placed within 45 days), plus earn hostess rewards & receive a minimum of three Sale-A-Bration gifts (1 for every $50 in product purchased).

Is this still true? I'm trying to piece it all together and I'm getting confused!

Unfortunately, you do not get a free SAB item for buying the starter kit (I asked SU that this week in fact!).

But as you found, you earn a 30% commission rather than 20% on your first workshop order of $150+ if placed within 45 days. So if you were to join on Jan 22, your 45 days would fall within Sale-a-Bration. Orders of $150 get the free pack of silver glimmer paper plus the free 3 SAB items, plus $25 in hostess rewards. Orders over $400 get a 3-SAB-item-bundle for the hostess, and 8 SAB items, plus the silver paper and $65 hostess rewards.

So you could put some things in your starter kit that would be good make and takes at an open house, and throw a party when your kit comes in. Collect orders from those eager to get SAB goodies, earn 30% commission that first one, and get some hostess bonuses for yourself too. Or if you have a huge wishlist, skip the party and shop for yourself. :)

Makalah 01-18-2013 07:44 AM

Another thought - the link can't be shared online yet, but if you've gotten the SAB brochure from your demo, the back side has the information about all the perks and promos going on during SAB, including the $150+, $400+, joining during SAB info I mentioned above. :)

weims 01-18-2013 08:24 AM

Is there a list of what comes in the kit somewhere?

There's no longer a pre-made starter kit. You pick what you want (see earlier comments - digital, Spring, Annual catalog, clearance, whatever!) up to the Sale-a-Bration amount (normally $125 worth of products, during SAB it's 25% more) if you join between Jan 22 - March 22.

SU describes it as:

"The choice is yours. When you join Stampin’ Up!, what you want is what you get! You choose what goes in your Starter Kit so you know you’ll love each product. And don’t worry about shipping and handling on your kit—it’s on us!

Pick your products, pick your pack. It’s so easy: choose the catalog products you want (up to $125 worth [note: or more during SAB] ) and one business supply pack so you can start sharing Stampin’ Up! your way with friends and family."

Then you can choose your business supply pack. This is the packet of order forms, catalogs, informational stuff that will come in handy if you plan to have customers. They are all a $50 value.

Your options for those are:

- Spanish business kit
- Digital business kit (contains only one annual catalog)
- Regular business kit. That kit contains:

• 2012-2013 Annual Catalog (8 )
• Celebrando Creatividad (1)
• Seasonal catalogs (8 ) (when available)
• Guest invitation postcards (100)
• Getting Started DVD (1)
• Stampin' Up! logo vinyl (1)
• My Digital Studio Marketing DVD (1)
• Recruit brochures (20)
• Customer Order Form (50)
• Hostess envelopes (10)
• Recruit folders (5)

KarenBinPa 01-18-2013 10:00 AM

So... if you choose the regular business kit, does that count as 50 dollars out of your 156? Or is that a freebie that you get, in addition to your 156 dollars in supplies.

Makalah 01-18-2013 10:23 AM

It's an additional freebie they throw in the box with the $156 you pick out! Extra flexibility if you prefer to do digital designs or have a Spanish speaking customer base. :)

SAB doesn't officially start until tomorrow...so it won't be posted online until then. If you have a SU demo, she should have already sent out catalogs to customers. Hopefully you have one close by, if not, wait until tomorrow and look at it online!

Makalah 01-21-2013 04:23 PM

So, who's shopping tomorrow? What's on your list? I still haven't figured out what's going on my order, but I need to narrow down my wishlist in the next 24 hours.

And who's signing up tomorrow? Welcome to the fun! :)

binkiemonstermom 01-21-2013 05:36 PM

I have a friend that has been waiting for SAB to sign up. I am very excited for her and to have my first downline!!!
It is a GREAT time to sign up!!!
Happy Shopping to everyone!!!!

basketballmom 01-22-2013 06:36 AM

It's here!
Feels like we've been waiting forever. My order has already gone in! (yeah ... I got up early just for that!)

ready2retire 01-22-2013 07:53 AM

The flyer is hard to read. I really wish it was formatted like previous small catalogs. Not inspired so far...

Here are the SAB products as pictured in the flyer: Sale-A-Bration 2013

And a demo (Linda Aarhus) created the attached easier to read flyer.


As far as the additional perks on the back, to summarize:

- Spend $150 or collect orders totaling $150, and you get 3 SAB items plus a free pack of silver glimmer paper and $25 hostess dollars.

- Spend $400 or collect orders totaling $400 and you get the 8 SAB items, plus free silver glimmer paper, $65 hostess dollars, 50% off one item, and the hostess gets a free product bundle (Madison Avenue stamps, ribbons, buttons, and DSP from the SAB flyer).

- Join SU and you get 25% more in your completely customizable starter kit - $156.50 worth of products and pay $99.
