Just Slide … And Get Noticed!
The Longaberger Rewards Program, featuring a credit card that lights up and lets you earn credit toward Longaberger Rewards with every purchase, is drawing attention from Longaberger Home Consultants and their customers. More than 700 Home Consultants have already applied for the Longaberger Rewards card.
Senior Director Delores Douglass was one of the first to sign up for the card and she says it definitely gets noticed every time she uses it! “I love my new Dynamics ePlate VISA card. It’s fun to watch the cashier’s face when I light up my card. Without fail, they will ask, ‘what is this?’ I am always prepared with at least a business card or even better a flyer. My response is something like this:
“It’s new technology that lets me personalized my card to earn the rewards that I want. For example, the button I just pushed will earn me free Longaberger products, or I can choose airline miles by pushing the other button. I know you are busy now; however, I’d like to give you a flyer with just some of the products that Longaberger offers. My contact information is on the back and I’d love to tell you more, and also how you can get your own personalized VISA card to earn rewards when you shop.
The benefits are amazing!
- You (and your hosts and customers) earn Longaberger Rewards (and 50+ other rewards, including air miles or even cash back) for something you are already doing — using a credit card, at a gas station, a grocery store … wherever.
- You earn those rewards faster and at a higher rate than most cards. Earn 1.5% per $1,000 on the no-fee card and 3% on the fee card!
- It’s a terrific business building tool! When the card lights up, it is a sure conversation starter wherever you are.
- When your hosts or customers sign up, they will redeem their Longaberger Rewards.
The Longaberger at home® showrooms are unique in the direct sales industry. The showrooms are another way to introduce customers to Longaberger and to help Home Consultants build their business.
In the practice of good business, we monitor each showroom’s performance individually. Some showrooms are more successful than others, which is a result of many factors. Each location is different and each is evaluated based on its own performance. Successful showrooms will continue, while the lease on unprofitable showrooms won’t be renewed.
We have extended the lease on two of our showrooms: Aurora, OH and Edinburgh, IN, and will not be renewing the lease on two unprofitable showrooms: Birch Run, MI and Johnson Creek, WI. We plan to operate these two showrooms through Sunday, October 27, 2013.
Showroom Hosts who have time booked after October 27 at Birch Run and Johnson Creek may contact Guest Relations to replace their time slot if they wish. Those same Hosts will also have one week of time to book for early 2014, to schedule Host time at any of our other showrooms, including Longaberger Homestead®, before we open for general booking.
The correct item number for the 4.5″ KnifeSafe is #90470. There was an error on page 5 of the printed version of the November Flyer. Please be aware of the correct item number when entering any orders for the 4.5″ KnifeSafe.
On page 9 of the Fall/Winter WishList, the number for the Artisan Napkin Basket Protector is incorrect. The correct item number, #40084 is shown accurately in the index on page 46. The online version of the Fall/Winter WishList has been updated.
October Brings Horizon of Hope® Events
October is national Breast Cancer awareness month which is the perfect time to celebrate your success with the Horizon of Hope campaign with our annual Pink Week! While there are fun festivities happening all week long at Longaberger Homestead – the week features two very special events.
The Horizon of Hope Dinner will be held Thursday, October 3, at the Home Office. The evening will celebrate very special women who have faced breast cancer head on and those who earned an invitation by being among this year’s top Horizon of Hope sellers.
