Frankly, I was amazed at the generosity of the giveaways at Convention.
I was given two mid-size warmers @ $25 each (everyone got one, and I got an extra from the tiara game, which is its own whole story, thanks Lynda!); a Design-It-Yourself warmer & rub-ons ($30 + $10); a commemoriative warmer (I figure $30?); a full-size warmer ($30); and a tangarine plug-in ($15) (the plug-in isn't in the picture because my daughter confiscated it as soon as she saw it). That's $165 in warmers and the plug-in.

I was given two T-shirts, a Scentsy Travel Tin ($5), a set of Fall/Winter catalogs ($20), a Scentsy bar ($5), and two CDs (one training, one promotional - I think they cost $1 each, so that's $2). That's about $32.
And finally, at the end of the second session (I think), we were each given a box.
When I opened it up ...
... it was a FULL SET of both basket and party transition testers ($19.95 + $53.20 = $73.15)!!
I paid $150 to in registration, and I received about $270 in FREE merchandise! So I figure they paid ME to go to convention!
Plus my director gave me a goodie bag, and Scentsy paid for 3 meals + speakers + entertainment!
(Note: I live 45 minutes away, so I didn't have to buy a plane ticket or pay for a hotel room or rental car - but with some planning ahead, and if you were able to share, I think you could minimize those expenses.)
