Woo Hoo! I have 1,614 points...I didn't shop here much before the change but I find the new program to be b.s. BUT that is just my opinion.

I don't shop here or I should say I haven't shopped here because I can usually find a better deal elsewhere.

I have never shopped here and only have 800 points. I never have $50 to spend at one time on scrappy stuff, and I hate to pay for shipping. There are a few thing I would love to get because A's doesn't carry an entire line, but so far I haven't wanted anything bad enough to pay shipping.

I have 5,585 points and I don't shop here because I do most of my scrapbook shopping at brick and mortar stores since there are so many around here. Plus I ALWAYS use coupons to buy my scrappy stuff.

Now how did I get that many points? Does that mean I lurk here way TOO much?

Oh, WOW, glad I opened this thread and checked my points! I have 2399 points and all I've ever bought are a few digital goodies cause international shipping would be killing my scrap budget.

Under the new system you can earn a 5% discount wihtout even buying anything. You get loyalty points by posting on the scrapping forums and by posting layouts into the gallery.

I'm up to 5% off and I never would have got there under the old system so I'm happy with the new one! Am very limited to what I can buy here because international shipping is pretty expensive. But there is stuff here I can't get locally so I might make a purchase once a year or so.

I do like to buy the workshops though

Yeah - new system means points for uploads and being chatty. Obviously I talk way too much.

I'm also a coupon/bargain shopper who doesn't like to pay shipping. Especially if it's expensive shipping. I don't know what it's like here, but I've seen people saying it's high.

I'd basically sworn off ordering here because the new program is total B.S., but suddenly I've got over 10,000 points (and I haven't made a purchase in ages) so perhaps I'll think about it!

Me but it isn't because I don't want to.

Mainly it is because of the price and also because I have had bad luck purchasing something sight unseen before. A family member did order a lot of stuff for me about a year or so ago from here as a gift.

I am also still partly frozen and need to use up some more of my stuff.

It is nothing against Two Peas at all. I'm sure I will order again eventually! I do check out the store a lot, just don't purchase.

I have shopped here before, but I have to wait until they have some kind of shipping special for orders UNDER $50.

I just looked, I have 416 points - no where near a discount.

I dont shop here. Shipping is way too expensive (about equal to scrapbook.com except they have a much larger range to choose from - have ordered from them just once). I have to stick to places with flat rate shipping.

Guess I lurk too much too, only 105 points haha.

I've just started shopping here in the last few months...I prefer to shop in person, but got so tired of M's an HL always having basically the same stuff, and no LSS here. So a couple months ago I started shopping here, and I LOVE it. Still no where near having enough points for a discount though.

I just checked my points for the first time. I didn't realize I had points. I don't shop here, or anywhere else online, because when I make a purchase it's usually so small there is no way I can justify the shipping cost. Especially not with an LSS that's almost as big as a warehouse (well maybe not quite that big, but way bigger than most) 10 miles away.

I am another one who doesn't shop here because of the shipping cost to Canada.
I wish they would relook at this because I do order online from the states, but from sites that don't charge so much for shipping

I always want to shop here, but I'm within 3 miles of a Joann, Michaels, Hobby Lobby and Archivers. By the time I add in shipping, it's cheaper to drive to a store and buy it with a coupon.

As much as I love the forums and believe I should support them, there's only so much discretionary money to go around.

I have been shopping here more as my lss often doesn't have new things (sign of the times, they used to be right there) I still go there every few months (they are not that close). They have an awesome bazzill wall!! We have an Ms which is okay for basics and a Js & W, both terrible for scrapbooking! I love it here for all the new products and sales. I have shopped a couple of other places but that is only because 2peas doesn't carry the item or its a sale I couldn't pass up!

I have tried to shop here, but I cannot recall the last time that an entire collection I wanted to buy was in stock at the same time and because I have been 'burned' in the past by buying a certain percentage of a collection hoping that I can find the other elements/papers/etc and then not finding them that I no longer do that. If I cannot get it all at the same time...no order.

The flip side is that for many things I am able to buy them wholesale and paying retail gives me a rash.

I would love to shop more here, but for the price of shipping I could have more supplies. Hmmm...what seems to be the better deal?

Plus, unless I know the brand and the quality, I prefer to feel the papers and see the colors in person. Weird, I guess.

That's me also. I'm fortunate to have all those choices so close.

And I'll admit I'm a bowl of sour grapes though over this loyalty program. That has definitely pushed me to want to shop in person, locally. Going that route has also forced me to cut way, way down on what I purchase. It was really easy to sit here, load my cart, and hit buy.

Also, I had to pack up all of my supplies when we were getting new carpeting. Yeah, I had a big eye opener right there I tell ya'. I've got enough stuff that I'll be able to pass down to my grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, etc.

I do on occasion. Two Peas sells out quick and it has been frustrating to get all items I want. Also, I know they updated their website but I still don't like it as much as another online store that I frequent.

Of course I shop here! In my opinion, buying scrapbook stuff online isn't worth it unless you spend like $50 anyways, so I always get the free shipping.

I don't shop here~one of the reasons I don't like online shopping is because of the shipping costs~ but the biggest reason is I am not patient & I want my goodies as soon as I pay for them! I am lucky to have a HL, M's & J's close by. But I have been looking at the store a lot more, so maybe I will place a Two Peas order...for some new trendy items not carried in the local stores...

I love options!


I LOVE to talk about scrapbooking!!

Yes.. that is why I like twopeas so much. They carry all the new trendy items that are not at Jo's, Mike's, or Hobby Lobby... all of which I have near me. I only go to those places for basic stuff like supplies.

This happens to me as well.

I don't always buy something the moment it is released, and by the time I do go to buy it, 2Ps is missing components that I want.

So I look elsewhere until I find someplace with all the pieces I want, because I don't want to pay shipping to multiple places.

WOO-HOO I have 210 points!!! I don't shop online - I don't like paying S&H. I'm happy with M's (and coupons). I also have a J's, A's, and HL - withing 1/2 hr of me. I doubt I will ever get enough points to make shopping here worhtwhile - altho I wouldn't mind trying (and use the free S&H) Maybe I should post more.

I used to shop here, but I dont anymore because of the new loyalty program. I dont exactly mind the new program, but I dont appreciate that my discount that I had just earned was taken away. I should have been able to keep my discount for the time I was promised. Since I wasnt, I decided I would no longer be shopping here.

I do simply because the items I want aren't available at my local stores (M's, J's, and HL) and I usually wait until I can order enough for the free shipping, so it works out.

I am not doing much shopping anywhere. I have a room full that needs to be used. And once spring hits in the upper midwest in April, I will be busy with some home projects. But, I do buy from here on occasion. They have items I can't find elsewhere. And, they are only 4 hrs drive from me. It gets here really quick.

I haven't ordered from here for a long time but couldn't remember why. Then I checked my cart, which has several items in it. Total for my items is $18, the cost of shipping is $11. Are you kidding me?

Now I remember why I haven't shopped here in a while. And while I feel terrible about it - I love TwoPeas and want to support the site - I can't justify that much for shipping.

I have been shopping here for over a year but not all that frequently. But with that being said, I will be shopping here more often in the future. I agree the shipping is high and I wish they would do something about that, but I so appreciate all of the efforts they have made in making this a nice place for scrappers to hang out. . .the forums, the galleries, and all of the awesome videos. They are a store, and they don't have to provide any of this. I realize by providing all of these extras that I'm sure they are hoping that more people will shop the store. I love scrapbooking and I love to be able to chat with others about it. I don't have any LSS's near me anymore, only M's, ACM, J's and HL. Sometimes I have gotten burned on a product that didn't look the same on the screen as it did in person but that won't stop me from shopping here. I love 2peas! (And I checked my points and I have over 6500!!! What?! I just started uploading l/o's and I am thinking that is how I earned so many because I don't post all that often). And it's fun getting that box in the mail!
