It's Transition Time!
At Scentsy, February is a transition month-the time we prepare to switch from the Fall/Winter 2010 Catalog season to the new Spring/Summer 2011 Catalog season, which begins on March 1. During transition, we release new testers, new catalogs, and the discontinued item list one month before the new items become available for purchase to make sure Consultants are well-prepared for the new season.
Here is a brief rundown of what you can expect in the weeks ahead. All system changes described below will take effect by 10:00 a.m. Pacific time on Tuesday, February 1.
Spring/Summer 2011 Catalogs
During February, the new Spring/Summer 2011 Scentsy Catalogs will be available to order at a 10% discount. The regular 50-pack price will be reduced to $14.40 (USD) and $17.10 (CAD) from February 1 through February 28. Stock up now!
A PDF file of the Spring/Summer 2011 Catalog is now posted to the "Catalog" link on the Resources tab, along with a document called "What You'll Love About the New Catalog" that highlights the changes and enhancements.
The Fall/Winter 2010 Catalog will only be available until February 28, while supplies last.
February 10% off Sale and Discontinued Products
All products in the Fall/Winter 2010 Catalog will be available at 10% off February 1-28, 2011, with the following exceptions:

Starter Kits During Transition
For the month of February, Starter Kits for enrolling Consultants will include both Fall/Winter 2010 testers and catalogs AND Spring/Summer 2011 testers and catalogs. As of March 1, Starter Kits will contain only Spring/Summer 2011 testers and catalogs for the remainder of the catalog season.
Tester Transition Sets
As we do with every catalog transition, Scentsy will offer Tester Transition Sets containing all the new and returning fragrances featured in the new Spring/Summer 2011 Catalog. Each set will contain 16 new fragrances, 5 returning fragrances, and 4 previous Scent of the Month fragrances. Tester Transition Sets will be available beginning February 1 in your choice of either Mini Tester or Party Tester size. Remember, the Party Testers are now the more convenient slim size. (Scentsy's traditional Party Tester is now discontinued and is no longer available in individual, category sets, or full sets.)

Transition Business Supplies
For a smooth transition to the new catalog, you can find the full list of the basic business tools you may need under the "Monthly Promotions" link on the Resources tab, titled "February Business Basics."
To make sure you get the correct discount pricing for February orders, the creation date of the order must be on or after February 1 and the submission date of the order must be on or before February 28. For example, if you create an order on January 19 and submit it on February 2, the system will apply January pricing.
One of the main reasons Scentsy has a two-week window for shipping times after the order is placed, even though we typically ship much faster, is to allow for any additional time we may need to process orders during the spring and fall transitions. Our manufacturing, picking, packing, and shipping teams need to switch cleanly and completely from the old product line to the new product line. Be sure to set the right expectations with your customers with regard to shipping so they know very soon.
