So my friend owns a large tanning chain in my town...She JUST has asked me to be part of her Fall Event...Open House!! in November.

All of the customers come in and get free goody bags and free tanning.

On that day I will be there with car candles to give away & my set up! I cant wait!!! Hoping this leads to more parties & prospects! :)

Just still have to get the ad & event approved by Corp.

Soo excited....just wanted to blab about it :)

I have not done a craft/expo with Scentsy yet..but have in the past with another company. I liked it.... A LOT of work regardless, but I think SCentsy would be MUCH MORE fuN! :)

Great success to you!

REALLY?
Wow cause compliance contacted me and said I couldnt mention any incentives be they FREE or financial and even haydens mom told me the same thing, I will find her post about that.

Conflicting info?

Okay found what haydensmom posted to me

"Per the policy, consultants cannot offer cash, any type of free products, or any other incentive to get people to join their team. I’m not sure which webinar that only cash was mentioned but per policy that was updated October 1st, no incentives whatsoever can be offered."

Ohhhh I see, I took the post as she was giving away a free car candle to everyone at the event, and thats what you where asking.. (thats why I said I have the sign that says free gift today when you book your party) I didnt think the message was about giving away anything for people joining your team, sorry if I miss-read!

Thanks by the way, I actually didnt know you couldnt offer any incentives what so ever for new sign ups (I knew about the financial incentive) I was going to give away a plug in display... hmmm I do you think it will be against policy if I gave one to everyone anyways... just didnt advertise it at all, just once they are already signed up tell them about it? What do you think? Im going to email complience today and see

Im sooo confused....Compliance emailed me AGAIN today.... Saying that I need to remove my "get a free gift with order" thing off my bio. WTH!?!?!

The other day I was informed that we couldnt offer FREE incentives to people to join the business???? Not to BUY!

Why is it that Scentsy Corp. People will tell us...one thing, then compliance tells us another. This is a JOKE!

At first it was YES you can offer incentives to join Scentsy, just not CASH....
Then it was... NO you cant offer incentives to join Scentsy PERIOD....
Now its.... NO you cant offer ANYTHING FREE to customers etc...

Am I wrong, or understanding incorrectly....

Well the car candle thing was as a free gift to people coming in and tanning...not to join the business.....

BUT I dont even know if thats correct anymore...

Maybe the LURKING Scentsy Consultant's that play Detectives KNOW IT ALL and will give us a straight answer. ????:rolleyes:

See thats what I thought you where saying! I didnt get from your post that you where giving anything out to anyone for joining your team.. I dont think its a big deal to give a free car candle to everyone at the event... your paying for it! :) I dont think the company would have a problem either since everyone would be getting one.

Hmmm.... Im not sure whats going on, I didnt know you couldnt give a free gift with purchase out.. I have a sign I use thats under the freebies on scentsy success that says free car candle and one that says free gift if you book your show today.

Boy it would be nice to know what the verdict is about giving out freebies of any sort. I understand the incentives for becoming a consultant, but what about just to customers for placing a nice order or just during the holiday for being a great customer......:rolleyes:

I agree, I gave each of my customers who had items on back order a Holly Berry bar for the delay.... oops!

I can see not advertising incentives for new team members, but can a sponsor never give their team a gift?

I was also considering giving customers a free car candle with purchase (not advertising, just adding a little something extra in their bags). Wonder if that is even allowed?

Oh I think giving your Hostess or customers a free gift is fine. I'm sure that's not what they meant. There are tons of signs to use on Scentsy Success under the free downloads section.
