Scrap Artist Stampin’ Up! Rewards and Incentive Programs

Learn about the Stampin’ Up! career plan

The Stampin’ Up! Career Plan is a generous offering of ways demonstrators can earn income. Learn more about the Stampin’ Up! Career Plan below.

  • As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, keep 20 percent of the personal net sales you earn through workshop and customer direct sales!
  • Earn an extra 10 percent instant income on your first order of $150 or more when you place your order in the first 45 days of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. That means you’ll earn up to 30 percent!
  • Earn additional income (which we call volume rebate) on your monthly net sales of $400 or more. Together, your instant income and volume rebate can reach up to 40 percent of your personal sales a month!
  • Earn free stamps within the first six months you’re a demonstrator through our Stampin’ Start program—a program that helps you establish a thriving career.
  • Keep your personal monthly sales at $300 or more, recruit other demonstrators, and you’ll be eligible to earn commission on your recruits’ sales! (We call this downline overrides.) You’ll earn even higher commission as you achieve higher titles and as your sales increase. The Compensation Plan Table on this page illustrates how much you can earn through the Stampin’ Up! Career Plan.
  • Earn cash bonuses, product bonuses, incentive trips, and other awards as you achieve success through our awards and recognition program.

Stampin’ Up! has a career plan that involves personal earnings, promotions, incentive trips and so on.  One of my favorites is cash directly deposited into my savings account!  One way to get that cash is to earn volume rebates.  By reaching various sales goals each month, you can actually earn a volume rebate above and beyond your 20% savings!  You can earn this with your own personal purchases and with customer sales.  Here are some numbers to keep in mind:

Stampin’ Start Program

Stampin’ Start is a six-month program that provides two ways for new demonstrators to earn free stamp sets:

  • sales
  • recruiting

When you meet a Stampin’ Start sales goal or recruiting goal during your first six full months, you can earn free stamp sets from the current catalog or mini catalog. (Current hostess-only sets are excluded.) They can also earn sets that are available for demonstrators for preorder. This includes next year’s hostess sets if they are available for purchase, and preorder items from the mini catalogs, not just current catalog sets. When you meet both the sales goals and the recruiting goal, you’ll receive

  • nine free stamp sets (you must redeem your sets by your first-year anniversary)
  • a congratulations Stampin’ Mail message
  • a certificate of achievement
  • an exclusive Stampin’ Start Achievers Apron

If you participate in Stampin’ Start, the program officially starts for you the first full month after you have joined Stampin’ Up!. The Stampin’ Start period begins on the first day following the last business day of the month in which Stampin’ Up! processed your Independent Demonstrator Agreement and ends on the last business day of the sixth full month. (See the Stampin’ Start Eligibility Period table below to determine the months you can participate in Stampin’ Start.) However, any sales that you make or recruits you sign in your first partial month (before Stampin’ Start begins) will be applied to your first month’s sales goal or your recruit goal for Stampin’ Start. When you meet either or both Stampin’ Start goals, you will receive a Stampin’ Mail message inviting you to call and place your order. Ordering deadlines are explained in that message. Participation in the Stampin’ Start program is optional.

Sales Portion

There are two three-month periods in the Stampin’ Start sales goal. The total sales goal for the first period is $1,800. The total sales goal for the second period is $3,000. The best way to meet these goals is to gradually increase your personal net sales each month. The first period begins your first full month after you join (remember that sales from your first partial month apply to this period, as well). When you meet the sales goal for the first period, you’ll receive two free stamp sets. The second three-month period begins the fourth full month after you join. When you meet the sales goal for the second period, you’ll receive four free stamp sets.

The table below show specific sales goals for each month of your Stampin’ Start sales periods.  If you complete both sales goals, you’ll earn six free stamp sets!  If you don’t achieve the sales goals during the first period, you can still work to achieve the sales goals in the second period and earn free stamp sets for that period. Any excess sales you make during the first period cannot be carried over to the second period.  Tip: Try to achieve at least $300 in sales at each workshop, and then gradually increase the number of workshops you hold each month.

Recruiting Portion

To achieve the Stampin’ Start recruiting goal, you just need to sign three new recruits any time during your first six full months. You’ll receive one free stamp set for each recruit you sign, up to three recruits. If you don’t sign three recruits, you’ll still receive one free stamp set for each recruit that you do sign. Any recruits that you sign before your first full month count toward the Stampin’ Start recruiting goal.  Stampin’ Up! must receive your new recruit’s Independent Demonstrator Agreement in our office before the last business day of your six-month period, as defined below, to qualify for Stampin’ Start free sets.

 

EARNING GREAT REWARDS INCENTIVE POINTS

Great Rewards is an incentive program that focuses on your efforts in personal sales and first-level downline promotions. The Great Rewards program is designed to work in conjunction with other programs to reward you for your efforts and to help motivate you to reach your own personal goals.

Demonstrators who set appropriate goals to achieve Great Rewards prizes each quarter will find a smoother path to their next promotion, will enjoy higher personal earnings, and will keep themselves on track to earn the annual incentive trip.

Earning Points

You earn Great Rewards points each quarter by selling Stampin’ Up! products and by helping demonstrators in your first-level downline reach new promotions. Each commissionable sales dollar (rounded to the nearest whole dollar) counts as one point. Each title promotion in your first-level downline (not including reinstatements) counts as 250 points.

The minimum amount of points awarded for a quarter is 1,000. The maximum amount of points awarded for a quarter is 15,000 points.

This program provides flexibility so that as the demands of building your business change and you focus your efforts to meet them, you can still qualify to win a great prize. You can focus on recruiting, personal sales, or both. For example, if you have $1,700 in personal commissionable sales in a given quarter, you will receive 1,700 Great Rewards points. If you also help two demonstrators in your first-level downline promote during that quarter, you will receive an additional 500 points, for a total of 2,200 points. However, if you have only $600 in personal commissionable sales and only one demonstrator in your first-level downline promotes during that quarter, you will not receive any points because you did not reach the 1,000 minimum.

Point Calculation

Points are calculated by the 15th day of the month following the end of the quarter. For example, the points earned in the January–March quarter will be calculated on or before April 15. The points will be communicated on the April Activity Statement, as well as displayed in the Great Rewards program.

Managing Points

Points can be carried over from one quarter to the next. If you want to save points, you can wait to redeem your points until you have accumulated enough for the prize. However, points do not carry over from one Stampin’ Up! year to the next.

Note: Great Rewards points and Incentive Trip points are tracked separately, even though they are usually earned in a similar manner.

Point Redemption

You will be given until August 15 to redeem any outstanding points from the previous program year. At that time, all point totals will be reset to 0 in preparation for the new program year. Accordingly, October will be the first month of the program year that points will be awarded for activity in the previous quarter.

Prize Selection and Shipping

Prizes are available at a variety of point values. You can select prizes on the Demonstrator Web Site or by calling Demonstrator Support once the quarter has ended and the prize points have been calculated, as described above.

Stampin’ Up! may add prizes throughout the year and reserves the right to substitute a like item for any item offered, if necessary.

Great Rewards orders for merchandise will be processed as soon as your order is placed. Please allow 4-5 weeks after you place your order to receive Visa gift cards or items from Merrill Corporation. Stampin’ Up! pays the shipping and handling on these items. Defective or incorrect merchandise must be reported to Stampin’ Up! within 90 days of the shipping date to be corrected.

Refunds and Exchanges

Please be careful when selecting your prizes and checking out. All prize selections are final; there are no refunds or exchanges.

Incorrect Merchandise and Products Damaged in Shipping

If you received the wrong prize or if your prize is damaged in shipping, contact Demonstrator Support. Stampin’ Up! reserves the right to substitute a like item for any item offered, if necessary.

Address Change Policy for Great Rewards

You may change your address online, or call Demonstrator Support and have a phone agent make the change. Your Great Rewards item will be shipped to the address that you verified when you closed your order.

Visa® Gift Card FAQ

Q: What happens if I lose my Visa gift card?
A: You should treat a prepaid Visa gift card like cash. If you lose your card, please notify Demonstrator Support within 60 days of the expiration date shown on the card. A new card can be issued for the balance on the card, minus a $10 reissue fee. If the card balance is less than $10, we cannot reissue the card, so you would lose the remaining balance. Also, if you do not notify Demonstrator Support within the 60-day window, your card cannot be reissued, and you lose the remaining balance.

Q: Do the cards expire?
A: The cards expire six months after the date of issue, and the expiration date is printed on the front of the card.

Q: What happens if my card expires and there is still a remaining balance?
A: Once the card has expired it is invalid and can no longer be used. However, within 60 days of the expiration date, a card can be reissued, with a $10 reissue fee taken from the balance. The remaining funds are credited to a new card and sent to you. For example, if you have a balance of $30 and request for your card to be reissued, you will receive a new card with the balance of $20 ($30 balance minus the $10 reissue fee).

Q: If my card expired over 60 days ago, what happens?
A: Once a card is past the 60 days of its printed expiration date, the card cannot be reissued and the remaining funds are lost.

Q: I ordered a gift card, but my mailing address in my profile was incorrect and I never received my card. Can I get a new card?
A: If you do not update your personal information in your profile, and a gift card is sent to an old or incomplete address, the card can be reissued (within the 60-day window of expiration), with the $10 reissue fee deducted from the balance. If it is past the 60-day window of expiration, the card cannot be reissued.

Q: I am planning on moving within the next month. Will I still receive my card?
A: If you are planning to move within one month of ordering a gift card, you should wait to order the card until you have updated your profile with your new address. Due to the provisions of the card provider, once a gift card order is submitted the address cannot be updated, and if you do not receive the card, it cannot be reissued to a new address without a $10 fee. Gift cards cannot be forwarded to your new address.

Q: I have submitted my Great Rewards order for a Visa gift card, and will be moving in over a month. Do I need to do anything?
A: If you haven’t received your card within 15 business days of submitting your order, and you will be moving soon, contact Demonstrator Support so a new card can be issued to your original address without paying the $10 reissue fee.

Q: Can I use my gift card to purchase Stampin’ Up! products?
A: Yes. You can use your gift card to order product or business supplies through OEX. Just select the alternate form of payment option and enter the card. If your order exceeds the value of the gift card, you can enter another form a payment for the remaining balance.

Q: Can I use my gift card to register for a Stampin’ Up! event?
A: Yes, if the balance on your card will cover the entire cost of the event registration. You cannot use multiple forms of payment for an event, so the method of payment must cover the entire cost.
