Do you need an ordering strategy for Stampin’ Up! products to maximize your hard-earned dollar? Here is a strategy for getting the most from your Stampin’ Up! order. When you should place an order with me directly when you should order online using a host code and what you should do if you have a larger order.

Ready to place your order? SHOP HERE WITH ME  

You’ve looked through the catalog and are inspired but don’t know where to begin? My suggestion is to start with a kit or Paper Pumpkin. If you see a sample that you would like to make, contact me for the products and techniques used. I will be happy to help you design your order around your needs. 


If you have a small order

  • Shipping is 10% with a minimum of $6.95. Consider adding envelopes, Whisper White or Very Vanilla card stock, adhesive, or other basic supplies so your order is closer to $69.50. It would just not do to order one $10 embossing folder and pay $6.95 for shipping! 

  • If you are placing a small order, you are not in a hurry, and you live in the Crystal Lake, IL area, contact me and I can include your merchandise in my next order. There is no minimum if your order is part of a larger order, so you’ll pay 10% for shipping. That’s 90¢ shipping for that $9 embossing folder. I typically place orders around the 10th and 30th of the month.

If your order is $69.50 or more

  • Order online.  Your order will be shipped directly to you. I have been very impressed with how quickly Stampin’ Up! gets orders out!  Most orders are delivered by UPS. Some very small orders are sent through “Postal Innovations” and may take a bit longer.

  • Use one of the current hostess codes (unless your order is $150 or more). I use the Stampin’ Rewards that accumulate from smaller orders to purchase gifts for my customers and team members.

    • Locating the Hostess Code box

      • When you order online, check your shopping cart.  Look at the very bottom left of the screen.  It’s hard to spot!  In fact, if your screen is small or you enlarge your view, the box for the hostess code may be off your screen.

      • If you can’t find the hostess code box, go ahead and place your order. I will call Stampin’ Up! Customer Service and add it, no worries!

If your order is $99 or more

If your order is $150 or more

  • Do not use the Host Code. Use those Stampin’ Rewards for yourself!

    • Check the chart in your catalog (annual catalog page 205 – JUST FOR HOSTS) to see how you can get free products.

    • You can buy anything with the Stampin’ Rewards or you can select one of the exclusive Host stamp sets. The larger the order, the more you can get free!

    •  Host sets are exclusive. You can only buy these sets with Stampin’ Rewards and they are great value.  

    • Make every dollar count.  If I have selected $145 merchandise, it’s worth adding another $5 to my order to reach that $150 level.  Or go in with others and aim for $300 to get 12%, $450 for 14%, or $600 and get not only 16% Stampin’ Rewards, but an additional item for 50% off!
