Savingfrenzy not saving as much as before
I remember last year when they had it it was 50% off and they had buy more and save on shipping.
This year is 30% of and you don’t get a discount on the shipping plus a now have to charge sales tax
Well I put in a $136 worth of items after the 30% and my tax and shipping was over $56 it was now worth me checking out so I guess the saving frenzy is saving me money
The last 6 months I’ve been only buying what I need now what I want and I’ve noticed since they went with QVC alot of the incentives to buy here have disappeared🙄
I stopped watching QVC a long time ago. Their pricing and their S&H became astronomical. So I went to HSN. Their regular prices, sales, clearance and S&H were FAR superior to QVC. But now that’s ALL changed too. As a result, my spending with HSN has decreased exponentially.
I too recall the 50% off Savings Frenzy last year. So I was also very disappointed with the 30% off “Frenzy” in July. And now it seems that it’s just worsened too!!! At 1201 AM on August 27th I checked their so-called “Frenzy”. All it’s offering is free S&H with a purchase of $75!!!! No codes for a percentage off whatsoever. I’m so disappointed with HSN. And I’m very mad at QVC for TAINTING HSN.
Fortunately, there are numerous alternatives available to us. Walmart, Amazon, Overstock, HauteLook, etc. all offer better prices, sales, clearance AND S&H. Just as Sears did, I foresee QVC & HSN becoming part of America’s past.
The new shipping and handling charges are rediculous …when buying 2 of the same item at $19.95 each the shipping was $15.00 and then that $15 was TAXED….FORGET it HSN ‘bargain’ prices often exceed local retail prices who don’t charge any S/H
and recently in spite of higher shopping charges my orders have taken the full 10 days to arrive being in the “packaging'” phase for 5 days unable to cancel them……the 30 day return policy becomes 20 as starts from date of placing the order !
I agree 100%, there new shipping policies are ridiculous given that most other online retailers give you free shipping if you spend $35 (Walmart). I also was going to buy several items in savings frenzy but when the shipping was $65 plus tax taxes it was almost half the cost so I decided that was a ridiculous shipping cost considering they ship everything in one box. I decided I didn’t need that stuff if shipping wad $65. QVC CEO is ruining HSN. I am a big HSN shopper but there is nothing they have THAT I can’t do without or find elsewhere. I even stopped watching the savings frenzy on TV & honestly I find myself watching HSN less & less simply because of the shipping. I have been buying from other online retailers with free shipping.
I thought the 30% off coupon was thru 8/2, I wrote it down, and tried to use it today 8/1, no go. So Canceled order.
I DID find the 30% off listing under Frenzy. I was able to use it today, 8/2.
I have found some GREAT SAVINGS on SSC& CAROL’S DAUGHTER!!LOVE THE SAVINGS FRENZY😉👍
Thier frenzy is saving me money. Didnt buy a thing lol
Thier frenzy is saving me money.
I remember the days when there was such great deals a person would have to snap and grab before the item would disappear, the deals were so great. Now a person has time to think about their purchase, this gives them time to take a second thought about buying the item or to do compare prices.
I have saved a lot of money since the merge. I have discovered local is the way to go.
Ah the good ole days. I remember last year’s frenzy too. Now, the 30% discount doesn’t even cover the cost of shipping on most of the items I was looking at. So it’s not a savings, nor is it a frenzy at all for me. I’ll pass on this year’s offerings.
