DO NOT purchase Pampered Chef gift certificates...sounds like a great idea, however they can ONLY be used to purchase on-line, not through a consultant, party or wedding registry...you cannot use them on sales and/or outlet pricing that is online. For example, there Kitchen Shears are now listed online for outlet cost of $6.00 and I cannot use my gift certificate to purchase at this price - If I want this item, I have to pay $15.50 (reg.price).
What a rip-off! Shouldn't a customer be able to use their gift certificate on ANY item for sale or otherwise by the company it's from???
