I wasn't sure where to put this but I guess it has to do with money so here is as good a place as any.

I was recruited into Tupperware by a friend on Tuesday night, who said its better for me to have the six start up parties insted of the four because the kits bigger and its a saftey net incase someone pulls out. Kind of struggling to find 6 parties, but I'll get there, though its making me think I might pay off the kit, grab the new funky gym bag and leave. Because I'm a nerd and I like to see how much I save on everything, I got out my calculator and tried to work out how much I would be saving on the cost of the Tupperware in the kit. The manager wrote in my recruit book that the SS kit was worth just over $1000 and it would cost me $610, which worked out as 44% off the kit, but she didnt give me the cost of the smaller kit, so I worked it out myself from the pic at the back of the catalogue and the current prices. It was $447 at customer prices, which seemed wrong, so I tried again, three times and it always came up the same. I then totaled the cost of the bigger kit from the catalogue and it came to just under $700. So I dont understand what the other $300 worth is. Am I missing something? I know catalogues and stuff come in the kit, but there can't be $300 worth of paperwork. Confused wacko.gif

Any help is appreciated. Sorry if its in the wrong place or shouldnt be up (newbie)

There's a few tupperware ladies here, so am hoping they can help.

I wonder if there's additional $ in there for training, support (and paperwork) etc? Plus you're also earning the commission off the first lot of parties which may have been passed over from the original tupperware party planner?

Hope you find the answers soon (there's nothing like the feeling of being ripped off so understand your dilemma ph34r.gif ).

Thanks. Still kind of feel a little ripped off though. The catalogue and my paperwork states you get $1000 worth of product, which really isn't true if it covers all the other stuff too. So really you only get $75 dollars off your kit. Not that much of a discount and I can't see how they can claim that little pack they give you when you start is worth $400. But as long as I get it paid off I'll be happy biggrin.gif

hun for my own curiosity's sake, I worked it out. The quick start kit is worth just shy of $600 in tupperware product alone, and the superstart would be about $1k (though I didn't add that one up)

so not sure what you missed... but I think you may have missed something?

ETA - this is based on the kit in the summer catalogue, at a quick glance at the winter one online, the value is roughly the same.

hope this helps smile.gif
