Been on waitlist for 30 days. Is it safe to say I am not getting the item? If so I’m considering buying it else where even though it cost $30 more. Why does HSN tease buyers with the waitlist option. You either have the item in stock or you don’t. Do they wait for someone to return a tried on item then resell it to a waitlisted customer for the full asking price instead of a discounted price?
I’m very turned off by this entire waitlist option.

Thank you for your responses. I will oder my item from Macys. Hopefully they wont send me another floor sample. Im not having to much luck shopping online lately. I now have learn not to order something on waitlist. Happy shopping to you all may you luck be better than mine.
Hi Jazzy. I have used the waitlist option a number of times and usually I do receive the item. You will be on waitlist for 45 days and then, if it is not in stock, you will receive an e-mail. If the item was a special price the day you ordered, you will keep that price. No changes will be made. Remember, most people will return the item on or before January 30th. Also, if possible, put the item into favorites even if is on waitlist. Just because it may be sold out, it could return at a later time. You just never know what the vendor and HSN will do, especially if others are in the same predicament as you.
Hi Jazzy18, If you do receive your waitlist item, chances are it’s a return. I don’t mind if the item is in new condition. It’s no different than buying a returned item at the store. We don’t get a reduction for buying a returned item at Macy’s so not sure why we should expect one from HSN. I just received a waitlist item that I never thought I’d get. It was clearly a return since it was repackaged but it wasn’t used. I am thrilled! We all return items to HSN. If they had to reduce the price because it’s a return, we’d all pay the price. I always think of the next person receiving my return and take great care to fold and pack appropriately. I appreciate the option of waitlist.
