What's so different about Sale-A-Bration 2021, when compared to other years? There are several reasons why, starting with the fact that it will happen TWICE! Doesn't that already make it the best stampin' year ever?
Let's back up just a minute before moving on...
What is Sale-A-Bration?
Stampin' Up!® gives an overview this way:
"Sale-A-Bration is one of our biggest promotions of the year. It’s packed with perks for demonstrators, overflowing with opportunities for customers, and filled with fun for everyone!"
Doesn't that sound like something of which you want to be a part? When I was a customer many many years ago, I was so excited every year at Sale-A-bration (then called Sell-A-Bration) because I knew it was my opportunity to get something for free! How yummy is that? The longer I've been a customer and a demonstrator with Stampin' Up!® the better Sale-A-Bration has become. Here is what this year has in store. You can earn benefits by shopping, hosting, and joining!:
Shopping During Sale-A-Bration Choose a FREE Sale-a-Bration product with every $50 or $100 you spend (before tax and shipping). Hosting During Sale-A-Bration Hosting is even more rewarding during Sale-A-Bration season. When you host a party (either virtual, in person, or catalog party) and reach $300 in sales, you can earn a special free stamp set! Even if you reach this amount on your own outside of a party, you can earn the same free stamp set in the new online store. You'll simply add it to your cart the same way you would with any other Sale-A-Bration product!
Joining During Sale-A-Bration If you decide to sign up as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator during Sale-A-Bration, you'll receive a free stack of our Regals, Subtles, Neutrals, Brights, and 2020—2022 In Color Designer Series Paper (a $57.50 value!!!), along with all of the items you choose in your Starter Kit! There really couldn’t be a better time to join the Stampin’ Up! family.
Earlier I said something about celebrating twice in 2021 with Sale-A-Bration. That's right! We will have TWO Sale-A-brations, one in January and February, and the next in July and August - the first two months for the new holiday catalog! Woot! Let me explain a couple of details even further. The January-February Sale-a-Bration will feature stamp sets and Designer Series Paper. These items are manufactured in the United States. Why does this make a difference? Each of the last several years, accessories have been offered in the Sale-A-Bration brochure, as well. Those items come from overseas. It's also at that SAB time of year that China celebrates their New Year, and manufacturing shuts done for several weeks. So...if there was a danger of Stampin' Up! running of certain of these products in their warehouse, getting them back in stock quickly is just not a thing. Now with all of these Winter SAB products being manufactured in the USA, those items can have a quicker turn around. This will create a much happier stamping environment, for customers and demonstrators alike!
The Summer Sale-A-Bration brochure will include some items from overseas and will be listed as being available "while supplies last." This will definitely create some urgency but at least we know it in advance.
I'll be sharing more and more new catalog items as the January 5 launch date grows closer. Come on over and join me in my Facebook Catalog Kick-off group so that you don't miss a thing! Here are just a few of the cards I've made using some of the SAB FREE Designer Series Paper (with a $50 order)! So. Much. Fun.
