is it just me? hsn christmas
is it just me? hsn has nothing this Christmas i look and they actually have nothing”” this year. they seem to be showing the same T.S. over and over like H.P.,Apple, body lotion, kitchen items. kitchen items are there biggest thry keep showing. no kids toys, nothing like ladt year and years past.its mostly electronics and kitchen. im so disappointed in hsn this year.on qvc, thdy have everything that hsn had so i wonder if qve took from hsn and left hsn with basically nothing? this is the same thing kmart did to sears they took sears appliances and left sears a kmart store’s and now most kmart store’s are closed and sears is now in chapter 11 and i fear that this is the road qvc is taking hsn down. has anyone else noticed it?
Nope…not just you!!. The shopping I USED to do (on both q and H) has gone to Amzn and to the *Buy Local*movements. Beauty products – Sephora/Ulta. They have the actual nerve to REWARD their customers with points, free shipping, and samples. Imagine that……………
No, none of you all are grumpy or wrong, it’s QVC who’s grumpy and wrong. HSN doesn’t feel as festive and family-ish like it used to. It is a-changing, and not for the better. I thought the worst was when HSN did away with the buy 1 save 50% on the rest shipping/handeling ($3.00 then $1.50) and went a little nuts with changing the standard $3.00 charge to $3.00, $5.00, $7.00 (and higher). Big ticket items (e.g., electronics, Origami) almost always had free s/h, not anymore. Two months ago, they bumped their clearance product prices up $0.50 and more recently, a total of $1.00. Now all the sale prices seem to be anywhere from $0.50 to $1.50 higher. Last night, I just noticed that when the elusive free shipping expired, the normal $3.00 shipping charge changed and went up to $3.50 (unless I’m on too much hot cocoa). The rare time you get that coupon, you pay s/h so it’s a wash. Remember the days of the spin-to-win? When you won coupons every day? I miss the old HSN. They need to really rethink what they have done, dump this QVC model, and fix this quick. I have 26 years of loyalty invested here and I’m no quitter, so I’ll hang in a little while longer but I’ve seen marriages end after 26 years for much less, so it’s doable.
And as for all these new HSN products? Most of them are basically QVC’s old products.
Otherwise, Merry Christmas folks and Happy New Year! And c’mon HSN, stop nickle and dime-ing your customers, it may look good on paper in the board room but isn’t doesn’t bode well out here in the real world, especially with interest rates on the rise and the HSN card charging CRAZY rates! Take Care!
No I’m here in the early hours of the morning. HSN have so many new products this year
Thank heavens, I thought I was just being grumpy. HSN is no longer the HSN we use to know. Gee, most everything is the same ole and some items are priced so high. Flex pay is great, but don’t raise the initial price just to give us 5 or 6 flex pays. I bought one item this year and that’s a miracle for me. Everything else I bought online and especially Amazon. Sorry HSN, but you all are losing customers.
I was telling my hubby the same thing you are talking about the other day. Ever since the Q took over HSN it has gone down so bad. I won’t even order from them anymore, because I feel like something is very wrong now.
