Just blowing steam
I have been optimistic about the games and how much fun they are and the there is also good benefits, eye hand,, memory. But as much volume as this company generates and how many people you have playing your pay outs are chintzy I mean really stingy. You guys are making a fortune and this is your reward program? You should be ashamed. You have hoards of lovely faithful followers and you throw them crumbs. Really what is the percentage? Bet you’d be embarassed to put it in writing. You are not the sweet kind people you appear to be your a sales company. Sales is your goal so quit the baloney about fun and winning free gifts it is far from generousity and rewards.
I only enter for prizes I really want. I can totally handle not winning, though!
I have to throw my own 2 cents in here also. 1st I have been a customer since I was young and have been shopping HSN for over 2 decades. I can’t buy as much now as I once could because I’m disabled but in 2 decades I have gotten 1 $30 Kash credit free because of a big error that was worked out in the end well. Customer service supervisors were awesome.
Patri3 I think your assessment is right. Even the gifts given out on the callers that called in during Birthday month got killer gifts. The percentage of those that got a gift from all the callers was very low however.
See, and I thought this thread was about Joy’s steamer. :smileyhappy:
My 2 cents worth is this. Not many stores I shop at, give me any opportunity to win anything. I at least get a lot of opportunities here. I even won a $25.00 gift card once for answering the Monday Night Show Question (and having relatives who like wine lol). :smileyhappy:
Good luck on winning, and try and have some fun. :smileyhappy:
girl you are so darn right about this they should definitely be ashamed of the small and lousey prizes they give out. The different companies who use this Home Shopping should be asked up front to donate so many more gifts for free and prizes for free as over the years I myself have spent a small fortune to buy big items from this HSN network and yes they do throw all of us crumbs. Thanks so much for your input. I myself think the games are rigged as I have been playing every week since they started these Arcade games. Never ever winning anything at all.
LOL! I need to get busy and clean up that room in “Find It”!:smileylol: I’m a perfectionist.:smileyhappy:
OK, debated whether or not to add my 2 cents and decided I needed to. First, the 2 people that said they only enter for prizes they want so those that DO want the other prizes have a better chance of winning? Bullcrap…the last thing ANY of us wants/needs is something we don’t/want need! Second, I actually had the chance to go on air with Sean to win something (which I blew since I was nervous), but still got a $25 gift card. The next drawing, I won another $25 (probably cause they felt bad for me, but still won). Other than that, nope, nothing. It is discouraging I admit, but that was a WHOLE LOT OF STEAM you let off lol….now need to get back to playing, nothing worth watching on TV. Enjoy all!
Today I woke up thanking God for giving me another day with my family and friends:heart:
Yes I understand your point of view. I have purchased from HSN for many years now. I was looking around the HSN site awhile ago – discovered the “community” and then recently began playing some games. The community is social, interesting and the games are fun and relieve stress. It’s a nice perk.
I don’t expect any gifts or rewards that are offered – as a matter of fact I don’t even know what they mean!:womanlol: HSN has great clearance sales like retail stores – that’s what I look for like any retail company. I’ve never seen games at Saks, Bloomies, etc.
Oh Oh not so fast HSN……I will keep banging the drum about you improving your shipping-return charge policies:womanlol: :womanlol:
I get how nice it is but big sales has a big budget. These are not poor people lucky to have a job get real it is a steam roller. I still purchase items and play games I just think they are throwing crumbs to the paupers.
How much fun the games are should be the only concern anyone has in my opinion.When something is offered FREE..there is nothing one should complain about.They is NO reason at all they have to offer FREE GAMES nor FREE PRIZES.I don’t expect to find prizes on the sites I shop and can’t think of another one that offers them at the moment.
Baffles my mind as to why people complain about FREE..Not happy with whats FREE then don’t bother with it.Really simple.Maybe one day we come to the site and there is no games,no rewards store,no forums,etc…just plain ole shopping like most other sites,then people would complain about that.
As for making money most companies have cut back and even layed off people…Of course they are here to make money…anyone in business is but it doesn’t mean because they make a profit they should turn around and hand it all back to people…As for sales that is any companys goal but playing the games and entering tickets for rewards does not equal sales..I rarely buy anything here because I find it cheaper elsewhere and I don’t use the HSN card because I have cards with better perks..
Maybe that contributes to what people expect,I don’t know but I can truthfully say they aren’t making a cent off me because they have games on the site or offer prizes.
I don’t want 90% of the prizes they offer, so I only enter if I really could use that product. It gives other ppl a better chance of winning. I bet some Arcadians r so obsessed that they enter the max times for every reward, no matter what. I wish the Rewards Store had more gift cards. Or how about coupons, LMAO!
Agree wholeheartedly !!!! Well said!
