Crimson Tate VIP TO GO! {Announcements, announcements, announcements}

VIP_LOGO

We are super excited to announce Crimson Tate’s online VIP TO GO program!  Many of you have been anxiously awaiting this moment and finally, it’s here!

How does Crimson Tate VIP TO GO work?

With your $35 membership to our annual VIP club, you’ll receive the following perks.  First and foremost, with your first purchase, we will reward you with the coveted Crimson Tate tote bag, sure to create feelings of joy in your neighborhood.  I mean, you need to let the world know you’re important to us.  Let that big old purple bag SHINE!

You will also receive 2018’s enamel pin, exclusive to VIP members.

We will send you extras in your online orders from time to time.  From a cute inspirational pencil to exclusive stickers, or extra fabric JUST BECAUSE!

What to expect?

Each month, you’ll receive a coupon for www.crimsontate.com that is exclusive to CT VIP members.  It may be links to secret products on our website, it may be the opportunity to be the FIRST to purchase a particular fabric or pattern.  Some coupons will include discounts for specific products or genres of products.  For example, one month may include a coupon code for 25% off all bundles.  (insider information: 25% off bundles is a real coupon coming at you when you sign up).

But guys, it’s already JULY.  Should I really sign-up now?

With the inaugural membership, you’ll receive six coupons that can be used through the end of September, at your leisure.  So the next time you need a bundle, you can dig that coupon out of your email and use it at crimsontate.com.  You’ll receive at least one coupon monthly from July – December.  Membership expires December 31, 2018.

What if you run out of the product that is named as a special?

That would be such a bummer!  We will make every effort to recreate the product that is on sale, but realistically speaking, most coupons that are for quantity limited products will be while supplies last.  You are VIP so we’ll come up with a way to make it up to you but you may want to move fast if your heart is all a flutter for a specifically special deal.

Cool!  My guild is going to split a VIP TO GO membership so that we can all share the perks.  Is that ok?

Please do not share with your buddies or family or sewing guilds, groups, or ANYONE.  We are a small operation and this is the most time efficient way we can offer specials to our favorite online customers (YOU!).  If a code is used by someone who has not purchased a Crimson Tate TO GO membership, their order will be terminated.  Booooo.  We don’t want to be jerks about this, but it isn’t within our ability to offer these deals internet wide.  They are special and only for you!  So when using the coupon code, it should reflect the VIP purchaser email address, street address, and name.  It cannot be shipped elsewhere.  Thanks for sticking to this.  We want this to be fun not legalistic.

Hold the phone!  I’m already a VIP.  Do I get to play this VIP TO GO game?

Friend!  You betcha!  Here’s the deal, however, VIP TO GO coupons can only be used online at crimsontate.com.  We cannot accept the coupons over the phone or in the store.  You can shop at crimsontate.com and choose in-store pick up; that is perfectly acceptable.  And to all of the ONLINE VIP members, you can also take advantage of in-store only deals when you travel to Crimson Tate and shop in the store.  Yayyyyy.  Fun fun fun.

Small Business Saturday @ Crimson Tate is for Sewing Maniacs!

Frequently Asked Questions

Dear Crimson Tate,

I live in the far far reaches of the world and won’t be able to make it to Crimson Tate on Small Business Saturday.  Is there anyway I can participate by purchasing items online to be entered to win?  How’s that gonna work?  Sincerely, Lover from the Far Reaches

Dear Precious Lil’ Lover from Yonder Town,

Don’t fear!  We’ve got you.  On Small Business Saturday we’re going to enter you into the hourly drawings!  That’s right.  For every $25 you spend we’ll generate tickets for you and add you to the drawing.  Wooooot!  And starting now until end of day on Saturday (6:00 PM EST) we’ll add you to the larger drawing, too.  So go for it!!

Dear Tate de Crimson,

I’m an international customer.  Am I eligible to win the sewing machine or hourly tote bag giveaways?  I’m tres excited to know.  Sincerely, La International Customer

Dear International Friend,

Yessss!!! Part of the reason we switched our online game was so that we could offer international shipping!!! We hope you’ll be our customer, too!  We’d love to enter you into the hourly drawings.  As far as the sewing machine goes, we’re going to offer you a gift certificate for the store. We don’t want you to have to worry about finding a voltage converter.  That sounds horrible.  Best of luck!

Dear Crimson Tate,

I am a mega mega fan!  How many times can I shop at your store and be eligible to win? I’m so excited to play and I’m super competitive.  Sincerely, I NEED TO WIN

Dear Needy,

Seriously! Get in here.  Get on crimsontate.com – you can shop everyday multiple times a day.  All of your purchases will be eligible for our many giveaways!  And thank you for being a mega fan.  We’re so honored.

Dear Crimson Tate,

I’ve been considering becoming a VIP.  If I become a VIP, can I get tickets for that?  Also, I was thinking about buying myself a gift certificate and then I want to use that gift certificate to buy my VIP membership.  Will I get tickets for the purchase of the gift certificate and then also when I use the gift certificate to get my awesome VIP tote bag and pin as a charter member?  Sincerely, Double Dipper

Dear Dipper,

You are so cute.  Here’s the deal, D.  Every gift card purchase made now through Small Business Saturday will be awarded tickets!  Yayayyyyy.  However, if you redeem that gift card during this time period, you won’t get double tickets.  That just makes more admin work for us and we’re not so into that.  If you’ve got a gift card you bought yourself before the game begins, it will be eligible for tickets.  And about that VIP, DO IT!!! There are only a few charter member VIP spots still available.  We’ll give you tickets for that purchase, too.  Bless your little heart.

Dear Crimson Tate,

Girl! I’m already VIP.  Are there any VIP perks for me?!  And do I still accrue points during this time period? You know I love you and I love being at Crimson Tate.  Lemme know, ok? Sincerely, VIP Charter Member

Dear VIP,

YES! You still get points! Just by your beautiful nature of already pledging your love of Ms. Alizarin Crimson Tate (you know that her first name is really Alizarin, right?) as a VIP member, we’re going to enter you into the EverSewn sewing machine drawing.  We threw an artisanal handwritten ticket into the barrel of possibilities with your name on it.  Bam.  You’re important to us.  Don’t you forget it. We love you.  Being VIP is awesome!
