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.

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.
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.
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!
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)
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.
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.
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)
Can't find the SAB catalog posted in SU's website.. is it hidden somewhere?
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!
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.
