Jumpin' Jackpot June -- Here's the Scoop!

Jumpin' Jackpot June -- the Goodie Boxes are Back in Town! That's as good as "the toys are back in town!" (Yes, I can't WAIT to go see Toy Story 3...but that's another post...LOL!)

I'm excited to share with you the details of Jumpin' Jackpot June. I hope you're as excited as I am. I ALWAYS LOVE getting surprises -- and this is even better because it's surprises that contain items for scrapbooking, cardmaking and/or papercrafting! Can it get any better than that? I think not! See details below.

On Jackpot Days -- FIVE products will be offered for sale at special discounted prices. On each Jackpot day, Corporate has selected one of the 5 products to be the Jackpot item for that day, but you won't know which one it is (isn't it exciting!). If you happen to order the Jackpot item, lucky you! Corporate will reward you with a fabulous Close To My Heart jackpot, which may be one FREE product or a bundle of several FREE products! For those of you who aren't risk-takers, you'll want to purchase all 5 items to guarantee you'll hit the Jackpot! Just click on over to my website -----> Melanie's Website.

If you purchase multiple quantities of the Jackpot item, you'll receive multiple products FREE. So, buy as many as you'd like of each item—there's no limit—and you could be a big winner!

The free items will be featured on the Jackpot June shopping page, alongside the 5 discounted products. We'll send your FREE items with the products you've ordered—and we'll pay the shipping/handling for your free items! Special shipping is offered on the discounted products you purchase: just $0.99 US for each item.

So, how do you know if you've hit the Jackpot? Each day Corporate will announce what the Jackpot item was for the previous day on and at

On Goodie Box Days -- you will be able to purchase a Goodie Box filled with wonderful Close To My Heart products at 50% or more off retail value. The Goodie Box contents will vary by day (Corporate’s not revealing specifics but you'll be thrilled!) and will include favorite current and retired stamp sets, paper packets, embellishments, and other great scrapbooking, stamping, and cardmaking items.

Corporate has made every effort to differentiate the Goodie Box offerings by date so you can purchase boxes on different dates and receive a wide variety of products. The prices of the boxes will vary but each will be at least 50% off retail value. The higher the box price, the greater your savings from the original retail value. Corporate’s also offering discounted shipping. Again, just head on over to my website ---> Melanie's Website

Important Notes: In order to give you, the shoppers, the best possible deal on products and shipping, Jackpot June purchases must include ONLY Jackpot June items (the Goodie Box or the discounted items) and nothing else. This will streamline the shipment of orders and is also how we’re able to offer discounted shipping for this exciting promotion. This means:
On Goodie Box days, only one Goodie Box and no other items may be checked out in a single transaction.

On Jackpot days, only the discounted items may be checked out in one transaction; no limit on discounted items per transaction.

June is going to be an EXCITING month filled with LOTS of surprises! Don’t hesitate to call or e-mail me with any questions!
