Ladies, the fat lady is singing
HSN was at one time the best place on tv. Now I think you all are seeing the prices rise up and service going down. It’s no longer a fun place with great products that we didn’t mind paying for, with perks of shipping cost. Now the games are changing, the products are faltering on lower quality and higher fees. Let’s say we had a good run, but they are running us off the site. I loved it, but I guess that doesn’t count for anything after years of buying.
@jadiva PERFECTLY stated , I completely agree with you . I am a long time active customer here . There only a few vendors nowadays left that I bother to even tune in to (:
The s/h is ridiculously high. No one that I frequently buy from charges such high S/H .
Actually many if not most offer free shipping or one flat order per order. ALMOST always nowadays, HSN charges s/h on each item without reducing after the first item although their prices are already high enough to cover s/h. If I see something I see offering s/h it encourages me to buy .
What hurts me the most on these changes is that they ask what we think and then they go ahead with their plan anyway. There is no longer good communication between the customer and the management. Sometimes there are other alternatives to their suggestions and all you get is a stab in the back. There are times that I think the owners repurchased HSN so they could tear it down and take it a part bit by bit. It seems they do not want any competition with their QVC. I’m beginning to think that this was a hostile takeover and I can just imagine what Barry Diller is thinking nowadays. I am positive he is crying on the inside as he watches what he built is going downhill very fast. There are times when I wish he would again take the reins and bring back HSN to the heights it once was.
I agree with you. Many of the vendors in fashion, jewelry and beauty are gone. Many items I can buy else where for less, no shipping cost and faster delivery. I have spent 10’s of thousands of dollars over the years on HSN and now I only watch if Marla Wynne, Carol Brodie or Heidi Daus have a show. The fashions are dowdy (and I’m 62 and saying that). QVC’s boring influence is now at HSN. The same show repeating for 6 hours thru the night is useless. I used to do so much impulse buying at night when I could not sleep (which is often), now I just shop online retail. During this Covid Virus every retailer is having huge savings as much as 40% off of new items, so why buy here? If you have Paypal Credit you have 6 months to pay for any item over $99 with no interest, this is more time than HSN allows on flexpay these days. I still read the community page to see what everyone else thinks about the changes.
