Keep those eyes peeled for some new pretties. 🙂 ~ Lucia Jennifer Hastings - February 22, 2016 - 2:40 am I LOVE the Cafeteria plan!! Everything I have received has been perfect! I love the anticipation and surprise, I can not wait to see what we get this time!!! Saima Barkat - February 21, 2016 - 10:33 pm I have never tried this before, so excited to try this Wendy Taylor - February 21, 2016 - 11:08 am Are there ever any women’s items posted to Platinum? I have only seen a few on Facebook? Kasey - February 20, 2016 - 3:27 pm Thank you for allowing us to choose styles!!! This was my first time ordering from cafeteria plan because we were able to choose. I am checking my order status daily because I am dying to see our new plat pretties!! ? Heidi York - February 20, 2016 - 1:40 pm I love surprises and grab bags! Last year the tops and dresses had coordinating shorts as our cafe bottoms. (thanks as we don’t wear pants much in Texas) I was excited to try and snag a lulu and tierd Sara and a shabby to try these styles but sadly they too were all sold out at checkout and I think I was pretty quick. So maybe next time!?. I did manage to snag a few flutters that are hard to get sometimes so I’m really looking forward to what surprise they will be ? thanks for keeping the fun in Platinum and always changing it up! Alex - February 19, 2016 - 11:57 pm Hi there, I don’t want to sound negative as some others have said but I was/am so disappointed with this new version/platform. I went on the site and put a few cafeteria items in my cart (2 dresses and 2 tops) by the time I went to pay it was all sold out. I ended up not getting anything because all the sizes I wanted were sold out. I did it a few times and every time stuff was sold out and removed from my cart. It’s really sad because my daughter loves platinum and gets really excited about new stuff especially cafeteria surprises but I guess not this time. ? Sarah - February 19, 2016 - 6:14 pm This will be our first cafeteria purchase as well as our first plat piece!! I’m so excited to see what it will be!! We love love love Matilda Jane!! Nellie - February 19, 2016 - 12:32 am Thank you for letting us pick out our favorite styles! I ended up buying 3 times more than I did last time, because this way minimizes the risk of getting something that won’t fit. We use different sizes in the different styles. So exciting! LCT - February 18, 2016 - 3:34 pm I loved the new Plat shopping for the Café Plans since its all a surprise :-). I ordered my first Hobo Bag(for me) and of course some cuties for my daughters. It was easy and I loved having the option of creating an account for future purchases. Nicole G. - February 18, 2016 - 3:25 pm Can’t wait to see what beautiful pieces we get this time around! Thank you so much!! ? Christin Raley - February 18, 2016 - 2:56 pm Yay can’t wait! Haven’t ever been able to cart Platinum with 2 girls!! Maegan - February 18, 2016 - 9:45 am So exciting! I can’t wait! I hate that the carts don’t hold anymore. That was one feature I loved about the plat site in the past. ? MJC - February 18, 2016 - 9:27 am Hopefully you won’t have any defects but if it does happen, we will be sure to take care of this. 🙂 ~ Lucia Anna Kessler - February 18, 2016 - 9:19 am Super easy to cart and buy–so excited to see what goodies I score! MJC - February 18, 2016 - 9:07 am Our Cafeteria Plan is a beautiful selection of Platinum pretties. We can’t wait to get them to their new homes! ~ Lucia MJC - February 18, 2016 - 9:05 am Yes ma’am. ~ Lucia MJC - February 18, 2016 - 9:04 am Feel free to set up your account at any time! At this point we do not have PayPal. ~ Lucia Cheri - February 18, 2016 - 8:55 am I love Plat, love Cafeteria Plan…but I’m with Michelle in being worried about the new platform. I foresee some headaches for everyone! Also, I realize that Cafeteria Plan items are final, but what if there is a defect (such as the very crooked bodice that I was blessed with on the Sara top in my last Plat order)? Will something like that be returnable? Looking forward to seeing what today brings! 🙂 Kate Stefani - February 18, 2016 - 12:00 am I had so much fun doing Cafe Plan last fall for the first time! I always get excited about Plat pretties coming in the mail, but there is just something about the surprise and anticipation of Cafeteria Plan that had me running to pick up our Cafe Plat from the post office….I couldn’t wait one more day!!? We recieved a gorgeous Penny Flutter Dress and Malificent Roundabout to name a few of our favorites! Bring on some Cafe Plat!!!??? Erica Jones - February 17, 2016 - 11:56 pm Can we get started NOW? The girls who love grab bags lack patience! Let’s play!!! Lauren - February 17, 2016 - 10:43 pm YAY!!! Elizabeth - February 17, 2016 - 9:13 pm Shopify on Plat? Eek. This scares me. Honestly, makes me not even want to attempt carting. Because I’ll only be disappointed to see that every single item I put in cart will display “Inventory Issues”. Aimee - February 17, 2016 - 8:12 pm Eeekkk cafeteria plan! I’m so excited and love that you are letting us choose the style!!! Love love love MJ!!!! ?❤️?❤️ Toni - February 17, 2016 - 8:11 pm Love being able to create an account for faster checkout… And not have to pull out credit card every time I want purchase something! Will we be able checkout with PayPal?? And when can we set up our account? ❤️MJC❤️ Michelle Gresham - February 17, 2016 - 7:04 pm Hi Melissa and Platinum ladies! Not to be a Negative Nellie…BUT…you speak of this ZOOM feature as if we will have a chance to use it. If we take time to zoom in, by the time we go to check out with the item, it will be gone. Shopify is probably the worst platform you could have picked because it does not guarantee inventory unlike the old Plat site. Shopify is a poor choice when loading MULTIPLE items. Basically, the first thing I click on, I will need purchase asap; there is not time to decide because carts do not hold on Shopify. All Platinum is going to see is an increase in is returns because we will be rushing to check out faster than even before, and we may not end up liking what we hastily purchased.This makes me sad, for Platinum is our favorite brand to wear. Also, are we able to use giftcards on this Shopify? And most importantly, will Bridgette still be able to get the screenshots of items to update MJC Lookbooks? =P Kidding. Kind of. For real though. =( So sad! Karidee Perry - February 17, 2016 - 4:32 pm I got the most beautiful items the last time you had a cafeteria plan. So, if we post on Facebook, we will get something extra special with our order? Is that what you mean by this? amanda delp - February 17, 2016 - 4:23 pm Omg!!!! I loved the things I got in the last cafeteria plan!!! Can’t wait! ! But a little iffy on the carts not holding ….it was so hard to get things before but maybe this will cut down on the people that were good at carting and just to jack up the price for resale only ….might give us others a chance at it…….it could go both ways ….. Amy Williams - February 17, 2016 - 4:17 pm I’m a newbie so I’m excited to get a chance at platinum! Do u think it will only be the cafeteria plan or new item toi? Polly Johnson - February 17, 2016 - 4:07 pm Omg why will carts not hold at least a little while? This is not good and will reduce the amount of items customers want buy! They aren’t gonna want to check out 5 times (will have to do that or lose the item to someone else) and paying shipping etc on each item. Not good at all! Oh my beloved Matilda Jane where are you?? Just not the same! Erika Fouch - February 17, 2016 - 3:59 pm So excited for cafeteria plan!!! It’s always so fun!!! ❤️ Cyndi Roark - February 17, 2016 - 3:56 pm I’m so excited. Wasn’t able to join in on the fun last time the Cafeteria plan was offered but I will this time. This will be our first time ordering plat!! Natalie Mahurin - February 17, 2016 - 3:48 pm My little girl has never had a Cafe plan item yet but I am so excited to get her piece this time! Patricia - February 17, 2016 - 3:48 pm So looking forward to getting our first cafeteria plan!!! Nicole G. - February 17, 2016 - 3:43 pm Thank you for sorting Cafe Plan by style!! Should help so we don’t have sizing issues! ❤?. Can’t wait! Erica Scott - February 17, 2016 - 3:40 pm So looking forward to trying the Cafeteria Plan! My daughter has outgrown just about everything she has! Perfect explanation too. Heather - February 17, 2016 - 3:35 pm Love sorting by style as well. Will help a lot when ordering 🙂 Lana - February 17, 2016 - 3:32 pm OMG!! I love Cafeteria Plan!! I always loved surprise grab bags as a child too. Nothing is more exciting than opening up that Platinum package and finding out what surprise waits inside!! Megan@TrueDaughterofMary - February 17, 2016 - 3:30 pm Very exciting! Did I also hear a rumor that PayPal will be accepted on the new site? Amanda - February 17, 2016 - 3:29 pm Eeeek I can’t wait! Christine Isabella - February 17, 2016 - 3:27 pm THANK YOU for putting them by style!!!! Since we wear different sizes in different pieces this is fantastic! Very excited! Christie MacDonald - February 17, 2016 - 3:26 pm I love surprises and great prices! Excited cafeteria plan is back!
