Just went to "spend" some of my points and found that:
1. you can now ‘purchase’ up to 20 chances for an item [used to have a max of 10].
2. the rewards store now has about 3 weeks as the time period. It used to be about a week. HSN why the change? If giving away too many items, why not just offer less, but offer them for a week like you used to.
3. the Valentine’s Day ones don’t even close until 3 days AFTER Valentines Day – and that doens’t account for mail time. HSN ??
Just went to rewards store….we are back to a maximum of 10 entries…..Oh well.
If you want to purchase any item from there I guess you may:)
I do not purchase anything from the store just enter tickets:)
I have been playing now of and on several years for fun and keeping my brain function active. I do not have to pay to play and can see when items go on sale from my favorites. I enjoy reading some of the posts and get to meet new people. I give my points away when HSN is matching our points with cash for a good cause. Do not give up and have fun playing!
why are 2014 winners posted instead of 2016 for the puzzles?
How do you know if you win any prizes that you have bid on? Ty..Kat
well those high ticket getters they can afford 20 chances on prizes I can’t imagine having a million tickets it won’t happen, but it’s okay I like playing the games and passing time watching tv and playing during boring commercials.
I understand your issues, I really do. I even agree with them; however, since this is not a paid subscription service or paid for ap, I don’t feel I can give the HSN folks too hard a time. I have friends who pay to download game aps and still complain about how they work and they can’t win anything. So if HSN is making adjustments to try to keep the games up for us at no cost, and we still have a chance to win something, I try to cut them some slack. In return they hope that we are reviewing the items that appear on the pages and they get paid back that way.
This may be a way to either highlight items as prizes or move slow merchandise. Either way, it’s a good marketing system as far as I’m concerned. I don’t care if the Valentine cookies come late. If I want them as a gift I’ll buy them. If I win them, I’m EATING them. Anyway, I appreciate that the games are always here ready for me to idle away a few minutes while I wait for something to boil on the stove or wait on a phone call or when there’s nothing on tv.
We should always feel free to make suggestions or bring up something that isn’t working properly, but I try to keep it in context with what the intent of the website offering is meant to be. If your points can be addressed, I hope they are, but if not, enjoy the ride. Don’t let them lick the red off your lollipop.
Well its all just an extra perk that we don’t get from most other sites anyway.I appreciate having all the games to play even if there were no prizes.I am sure they account for banwidth costs,etc that most other sites would not offer us.The prizes may be fewer but they are still something we don’t get the option for elsewhere.Everything has gone up in cost so we have to appreciate any freebie that a company gives us.Plus the games are a lot of fun.
I am surprised….3 plus days and no response to my question from HSN. I now have to agree with what TREKKY says….things are changing at HSN. In the past, they would respond to questions and posts.
I’m guessing (and strictly a guess and strictly my opinion), that with the business HSN had last couple quarters and the big layoffs, that changes had to be made, in any way, shape, or form.
And this is one of the changes…fewer prizes..but seems like it’s more because it goes longer and you get to "buy" more chances.
Will see in the future if this format stays the same or goes back to what it was or even to a new and better format!!
Good luck everyone.
REWARDS–I was just thinking about Valentines Day,and was wondering why some of the so called "prizes" seem to have a Valentine theme.I also think the with business HSN has,it can afford the so called prizes.
Thanks for the info. I like I can get 20 chances now. Probably won’t help me any as I never seem to win! :smileyhappy:
