What is everyone doing for end of year specials? If any? I am planning to do a special day on Halloween and since this is 10/31 I thought about offering a "tan for the rest of 2001" special--If purchased on this date.What keeps some of them tanning during the holiday season? This is my first experience with the holidays.I want to put together some gift certificates and some special "Tanning baskets" that people can purchase as gifts. Do you usually see family members purchasing gift baskets for their wives/friends that tan?Melissa

Some will come in & tan for various events. Holiday parties, weddings, cruises, trips come to mind. Gift Certificates are great to have around. People will buy these for gifts for all occasions. I personally haven't had much luck on gift baskets. I sent out postcards this time last year for people to get $10 off a month unlimited. It was NOT a success. Most people don't tan this time of year, but hopefully more & more would rather maintain instead of starting over.

We are currently running buy one month get two free (gets them in the door for product and upgrade sales). This special is valid until 10-31. Then on Nov 1st we are going to run buy one month get one free. We always run the rest of the year promo, it always goes over good. We started it in July for $99. We have done the baskets before and they did pretty good. The prices on the baskets ranged from $25 to $50. Every basket was different. Some are made for "tingle tanners", "non-tingle tanners",and some just for skin care.
