HSN I think you may regret
the decision not to give points for reviews.
I like my tickets and probably won’t review nearly as much if I’m not receiving my 50 tickets for doing so.
That might be the intent. They may have considered the matter and deemed it unwise to grant tickets for reviews.
Hmm, you could be right. I can see where they wouldn’t want bad reviews but what about great ones that encourage people to try a product.
I’ll agree to a bit of a grumble on this matter.
It’s not like you can redeem your tickets for actual cash or merchandise. Unless I’m missing something else, the best you could do for a redemption was to enter the drawings (very limited amount of awards versus the thousands to who knows amounts that people would use to enter and then lose) or give to charity (my choice).
It seems odd…and stingy. It was a small something that encouraged me to do some reviews on the HUGE amount of stuff that I’ve purchased.
I wonder if this will cut down on the ridiculous reviews saying something like "I have not yet tried it but …"
On the other hand, personally I will probably review less. I don’t know…. I guess if I were HSN, I would try it this way and that way and compare.
I have no regrets about this decision. :womanvery-happy:
I have never, ever won one item with tickets.:womanmad:
I do not care. :womanvery-happy: Thanks for saving my time. I now just review items that are wonderful or horrible and nothing in between.
What is the point of winning tickets if I cannot win anything with the tickets? It is worthless. :womanfrustrated:
I will always review a Heidi Daus piece. I always leave reviews if reminded.:smileyhappy:
Although I loved getting the tickets hopefully it will cut down on the unhelpful reviews like "took too long to ship" or great/poor product without any sort of explanation. I DO read reviews and they really help me making buying decisions.
I do read reviews with humor. I will always try and be true to myself and buy it if my own senses tell me it is for me- ANYTHING BUT MUSK–If I SEE MUSK IN A REVIEW I REFUSE.
So yes reviews are at times important to me.
I refuse to leave bad reviews and maybe twice had a reason to but in the many years with HSN I have been very happy.
POINTS OR NO POINTS- I saw still review.
Most of the time, I forget to review things anyway…but I see more useful reviews in the forums.
I don’t think it was a bad decision. I leave a review if I really liked a product and if I really didn’t like it. If I’m on the fence it’s a hit or miss for me to take the time to review.
I give honest reviews, no matter who, what or where…I have gone on to review other products from other places, I don’t think HSN likes how I respond at times. Hey April.:smileywink:
I still review my purchases but I have to agree 50 tickets for taking the time to submit a review was a real drawing card.
I neither agree or disagree with the change. The tickets were never an incentive for me to leave a review.
I never even realized that I was getting 50 points for a review.
I review to help other shoppers with their own purchase, no other reason, and I will continue to do so.
I feel as a consumer we have a right and responsibility to inform others the truth so that they are well informed. I myself want to be informed with accurate information. I do not give inaccurate reviews no matter who does or does not like it.
