Default SU sale?

Great! I just placed an order on Saturday! And my daughter and her husband and allllll of her animals are taking over my craft room (OK, it used to be her room!) until Sunday. I think I'm gettin' the shakes! Withdrawal pains from all that's stampy.

Same here. I'm trying to order the curly label punch bundle but it is not showing the bundle price. I also tried to put in the # for the All In the Family just to test it and it is not recognizing/finding the #. Grrrrrrrrrr.

I just placed an order (I'm a demonstrator, but it was for my customers), and I got 3 different bundles at the correct price. The order is already completed without any problems.

I'm in Canada by the way, so I don't know if that makes a difference...

Good Luck...I would be very frustrated in your position!

It seems to be working from the US side now also. I just went through my DBWS as a "customer" and it shows the full price for the bundles, but when you add it to the shopping cart, it shows the discounted price.

I think things got a bit wonky when everyone rushed the servers at 12:01 AM Mountain time. Seems to be okay now though so try again!

I asked my DH for the Curly Label Punch Bundle for Christmas - so he scores a win!! There's nothing else I need or want from the list as I either have it or don't want it - oh well - it's one way to save money!!!

Thanks for the heads up. I am all over it!! I love that the link says "Elf yourself" I am tired of buying great stampin' gifts for others and then not getting a little something for myself. Now I'm getting a lot for myself- which I will then turn into something great for others!

OK, maybe I am feeling like the Grinch but I just don't see anything that fabulous. I would have loved to see something like the Big Shot go on sale for the season. That I would buy!

Well my SU! Demo doesn't even try to sell us that stuff because she knows how good a deal Micheal's, Hobby Lobby, etc. give on things like the Cropadile or the Big Shot. She wants us to be able to get stamps, punches, paper, etc. from her because those are one of a kind things that SU! sells whereas the Big Shot and Cropadile can be purchased for better prices at those chain stores.

Just an FYI that the All in the Family bundle and the Mission Embossable bundles are sold out.

Well that is a bummer. I missed the All in the family bundle so I don't know what the savings there was, but the rest of the bundles are only marked down 10 percent. Yes TEN PERCENT. From 36 to 33 and like 32 to 29 dollars. How freaking excited should I get about that, I mean really? What bothers me more is the advertisement of UP TO 50 percent. Well, if All in the family was marked down 50 percent, it was the absolute only one. I really do not care for misleading information like that. This is the first time I have ever been truly disappointed with SU, ever, ever EVER. Shame on them.

SU! did not mislead anyone on this. If you look at what the bundles and an actual catalog and what the prices are, you will find the savings is between 20-50% on ALL Bundles. I am not sure where you are looking - but go to any demonstrators business website, click on Shop Now then specials and holiday extravaganza. The sales are legitimate. I did the math.

If you are just looking at the items through the Stampin' Up! website directly - and a DEMO website, yes, you may see just small savings. The object of this promotion is to get people to order through a demonstrator to get the biggest savings.

I was looking at the SU website, and they have listed under the photo of the bundle the total REGULAR PRICE 32, sale price 29. I don't see how I am misunderstanding anything. However, I will go and look at each individual item within the bundle to see if that is where they are trying to say 50% off of one item. However the total savings on the entire bundle is only 10%. I stand behind my original statement, which is hard for me, as I do love SU, but I do feel that total savings of 10% on entire bundle is not a great deal.

Well clicking on the bundles now I see that there is in addition to

REgular price and Discount price

There is Catalog price and
Price NOW prices.

These prices you find inside are signifidantly better. It is not understood by me why in heaven they have the other prices advertising significantly less savings until you click on the bundle to find much better savings inside. Their marketing people need a slap on the wrist for that one.

SO redeemed - much better prices, indeed. I apologize, I knew something had to be wrong since SU is so fabulous, I couldn't understand -- still don't understand why there are 4 prices listed but people CLICK ON THE BUNDLE TO FIND THE PRICE!!!! Stuff like 75 is marked down to I think it was 40 which is a huge savings.

What a sweetie you are to come back here and clarify!!

IMHO, SU offered some great deals, but as a customer, I have to agree that the marketing of buying directly on line from SU, buying through a demo website and buying through a workshop is just too confusing if the prices differ. While I understand the logic behind trying to get folks to go to a demo's website, the prices really need to be the same.

If SU wants to push the demo's websites for ordering, maybe SU shouldn't offer direct ordering from SU...

Pigfingers, thanks for clarifying.

I also agree the website pricing can be pretty confusing. I believe there are three types of prices:
  1. prices if you shop online and don't select a demonstrator - these are the highest prices and higher shipping and you don't get Stampin' Rewards (basically the same as hostess benefits)
  2. prices if you shop online and do select a demonstrator - these are the regular catalog prices, but if you start out by going directly to stampinup.com you get higher shipping and you don't get Stampin' Rewards
  3. prices if you start out on a demonstrator website - these are the regular catalog prices, lowest shipping, and you do get Stampin' Rewards

So when you add a sale with bundles into the mix it just adds more. I'm hoping they are learning from this and the marketing and how they talk about pricing will get a bit more clear. In the case of this sale, I know some folks posted the sale flyer on their blog (I know I did) and it is much easier to understand what the prices are and what the savings are from it rather than straight from the website.

Oh, and I just noticed something wierd. If you try to order the Mission Embossable bundle from the Stampin Up website it says it is sold out but it seems to still allow sales through the direct demonstrator ordering tool. So you may want to try that if you want that bundle.

Well, that didn't work with the All In The Family bundle. I just tried it with a Demonstrator Order. No dice.
