Don’t you just love free stuff? Especially when it’s Stampin’ Up! tools and supplies? If you make handmade cards and paper craft projects, then you know how much “stuff” it takes to have a well-stocked craft room. And stuff costs money.
Sure, you can take a coupon to the local craft store and get some bargains.
But have you ever noticed that you get what you pay for? The quality of the papers, card stock, and embellishments just aren’t what you can expect from Stampin’ Up! Plus when you get them home and start to create with them, you’re likely to end up with supplies that don’t match colors you already have, so you go back to the craft store to purchase more stuff that will coordinate with what you bought on your first trip. Geez, are you frustrated yet?
Wouldn’t you rather learn how to earn free merchandise from Stampin’ Up!? It’s easy. You can earn Hostess Dollars with qualifying orders.
What can you purchase with Hostess Dollars? Any Stampin’ Up! merchandise! Woo Hoo! Plus you can order Hostess Sets, which can only be purchased if you qualify for Hostess Dollars. For example, this card is made with the Bloom with Hope set. (I showed you a close-up of the flower in Friday’s post, Waiting for Blendabilities?.)
Hostess Sets (or Stampin’ Rewards, as they’re called online) are a great way to save money because they’re priced way below retail prices. For example, Bloom with Hope in clear mount would cost $27.95 at its full retail value, but as a Hostess Set the price is only $17.95!
In your Stampin’ Up! catalog, there’s a chart on page 236 that tells you how many hostess dollars you’ll earn with orders totaling $150 or more (excluding tax and S&H). But don’t think you have to buy all that merchandise yourself. Go in on an order with stamping friend(s) and watch the Hostess Dollars add up!
Here’s some more good news. If your stamping friend lives too far away to split up the order when it’s delivered to you, I’ll give you a Hostess Code she can use when she places her order online. When she’s ready to check out, she just enters the code in this box, and her order gets added to your total.
Her order is delivered directly to her, and yours comes to you. Next time you order together, she can be the “hostess” and earn the Hostess Dollars, while you use her Hostess Code. You both win!
If you need a hostess code, just email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call me (505-266-6240) and I’ll set one up for you!
As cardmakers and paper crafters, we have to stretch our stamping dollars without sacrificing quality. That’s why I know you just love free stuff from Stampin’ Up!, and you’ll want to earn Hostess Dollars on your very next order!!
