Great Snail Race

The Great Snail Refill Race is Back......- the original, and much copied!

Yes, it's time to stock up on our snail once again.  The holidays are coming and we all know how much we go through right? 
Well, here is your chance to stock up at a HUGE discount. and Boy, do I have a deal for you this week!
The GREAT SNAIL REFILL RACE -  is the original Stampin UP Snail - no substitutes will do!
The more we order together, the cheaper the price. (this applies to refills only).
So, if you would like to join in, E-mail me Susie Reno.
I Need:  (U.S. residents only please)
  • your first and last name,
  • your mailing address
  • your telephone number
  • Your e-mail that your paypal is hooked up to.
  • don't have paypal?  E-mail me the above info, and ask for my address, you can send me a check.
- I will send you a paypal for your payment on August 30th.
DEADLINE - August 30th, 6:00 P.M. Pacific Time
Here is what I do, I use my Demonstrator Discount to reduce the price, I also use the Hostess Rewards to buy more, which further reduces the price.  So, the bigger our order, the cheaper the snail.  I'm also throwing in free shipping to my house, You pay shipping to you.
46 units ordered - price is $3.40 (we usually get here within 5 minutes of me posting this, LOL)
61 units ordered - price is $3.33
93 units ordered - price is $3.22
Ok, normally, the above is what happens, but I already have enough orders to get to THIS:
140 and over - price is $3.00 - Best Deal
- and we are already here, whooo hoooo! (my friends use a lot of snail, LOL).
BUT - It has to be ordered by August 30th - so you need to contact me NOW if you want in on this deal!.
My shipping boxes hold 10 and shipping is $5.00 - if you live in the AV, you can pick them up and and eliminate the shipping fee.  I also have larger boxes for bigger orders, but the shipping will be a bit more.
An Example of the savings - compared to you ordering it.
10 @ $3.00 = $30.00 (your cost from me) -
regular cost $4.50 = $45.00 = $15.00 savings plus you will save $1.50 on the shipping too.
Savings $16.50 on 10 refills
Stampin Up Snail is made by Tombow and is a first rate product, it dispenses two sided tape with a flick of your arm, making your projects go together quickly and securily, with no "glue stick mess"!
