Headstart Program



You can start your Christmas shopping with us now. It means you start putting money aside each week, ahead of Christmas 2020, and you can turn that saving into an order at any time. As soon as you have the catalogue and you know what’s on your list, you can turn your Headstart into an order. You can do that online or give us a call on 0800 555 333.

You can start a HeadStart now for any of our 2020 Catalogues. We have some great catalogues coming up: Toy & Gift, Favourites and more.

The earlier you start your HeadStart, the smaller your weekly payments will be and the more.

Don’t Delay, Start your Headstart Today!



What is an HeadStart Plan?
A HeadStart Plan allows you to make payments towards next year’s order, while giving you time to decide exactly which products you want to choose. Once your 2020 order is fully paid, a HeadStart Plan for 2021 will automatically be created for you and your payments will continue (for the same amount as your second to last payment for your 2020 order), unless you instruct us otherwise (see Opting Out below).
What will my payments be under a HeadStart Plan?

We calculate your HeadStart Plan payments using your second to last order payment amount, or the specific amount directed by you. We will write to you to confirm the amount and other details of your HeadStart Plan payments prior to commencing your payments.

Are my payments refundable?

Payments under your HeadStart Plan are fully refundable unless you convert them into an order. Once payments under your HeadStart Plan are converted into an order, Chrisco’s Cancellation Policy will apply to your order (see below Chrisco General Terms and Conditions for details).

What if I don’t convert my HeadStart Plan into an order?

If you have not converted your HeadStart Plan into an order by March 15th, Chrisco will automatically place an order for you for goods of a similar value to your current years order (unless you tell us not to do this).  Order that are placed by Chrisco are fully refundable until you confirm your order.  Once you confirm your order, Chrisco’s Cancellation Policy will apply.

If you continue to make Automatic payments after your 2020 order is fully paid, and you have not checked the red box at the bottom of your order form or told us you do not wish to participate, you will be automatically enrolled in our HeadStart Plan for 2021 (see HeadStart Plan terms below including terms for refunding your money or payment towards your 2021 order).   Payments under your HeadStart Plan are fully refundable until you convert them into an order.  (See our Refund Policy in Chrisco General Terms and Conditions for details)


How do I opt out of a HeadStart Plan?

If you do not intend to use the HeadStart Plan for 2021, please (1) cancel your Automatic Payment to us once your order for 2020 is fully paid and (2) Please either check the red box at the bottom of your order form, or tell us that you do not wish to participate in the HeadStart Plan. You can call us at 0800 555 333

Free Gift: to give you an extra helping hand, Chrisco will give a free gift to any customer whose HeadStart Plan is converted into an order and that order is fully paid. (Limit one free gift per customer per year).

Contacting You: we will try to contact you to get your instruction on any continuing payments, but we need to get hold of you to do this: see the “CONTACTING YOU” in Chrisco’s General Terms and Conditions for details.
