Default Your largest SU order was how much? $$$

Just thought this might be an interesting thread. I'm looking through the new catalog and of course, I want this, I want that...oh...and that too! When I total it up...it's like a whole lot of money, so I was wondering, what is the largest SU order you ever placed with your demo. I'm sure if I place all of my order, my demo will be ecstatic!!!

For the record, my largest to date...is $175.00, give or take a few dollars.

Not sure, but I think it was around $500. That was the year I turned 40 and asked DH for a chunk of money for my craft account. It was a big chunk, but not as much as the $3,800 bicycle he got for his 40th b-day!

It took over a year for me to spend it all. Goodness, wish I turned 40 every year.

My biggest personal order was around $750 -- that was the 1st order I placed when I became a SU demo. It was AWESOME to have 3 boxes of stuff be just for me!!

I usually do a $300-$400 order at the beginning of the new catalog. That way I can get some new sets and accessories to demo with. But, I do try to save up a little at a time so that I can do this with no problem. It is alot of fun to open that huge box and have it all be for you!

Yeah me too!! Wanna know where you ladies work!!

My largest was $150 when a new demo let me in on her first large 30% off deal - and that was a lot for this single woman with very small income to shell out (jeez I wonder if I ever finished paying her for it - better call and ask)....eeek.

My largest was under $400, during my demo's 'end-of-the-year-sales-boosting-30%-off' deal. I remember because I had to hit $400 in regular prices to get my Lv 1 & 2 hostess sets...so with tax and shipping it was probably close.

I wouldn't do it again though...some of those sets took months to get cut up...haha...it's actually more fun to get one or two sets and new colors and play with them all right away... I think... No...it IS more fun to get a huge box all for yourself...

My most was $600 at tax time. My DH and I agreed that when we got our refund cheque we would each get $600 to spend on whatever we want, so I bought mostly paper and supplies, I also got a few stamp sets. It was like Christmas time ordering and then getting the box from my demo.

I plead the 5th. MY DH gives me gift certificates to my Demo for my birthday, Mother's Day, and Christmas. So I usually use that.

It is up to the individual demonstrator if they offer them or not. they can only be spent with the issuing demonstrator.

My highest order to date has been around $200. I anticipate the order that I will be making after I sign up as a demo with my 30% off to be around $500- before the discount. I keep trying to remind myself as I make my loooooooong list of wants that I still have to pay shipping on that $500! lol

I believe my highest single order was just over $1700, but then 2 days later I placed another for $200 so it was an expensive week.

My measly biggest order was maybe $40. I don't own that much SU stuff and have never had enough "Fun" $$ to place a big order.

I tend to buy my things off Ebay and lately here on the buy/sell board.

Sorry to disappoint you all..................

I think my largest (I'm not a demo) pushed me into being able to select a level 2 hostess set. Dang my fingers were sore and raw from trimming all those sets, but boy was it fun

No dissapointment, I bought and still buy tons of stuff on ebay or on the buy/sell board.

I don't spend that much on every order, sheesh that would be the whole catalog.

when I first became a demo I decided to really take advantage of that first order discount... bought all the classic pads I didnt' already have, stocked up on cardstock, and of course a few stamp sets too. I don't remember exactly what it all totalled, but somewhere in the vicinity of $500.

hmmmm...I don't think I've ever spend more than $200 on an order by myself. I have a hard time waiting and saving up for anything bigger.
