Selling a reversible NFL vest with only two weeks left in the regular season is a special kind of stupidity that only the Q can manage

makes no sense,  they do this often. selling stuff "out of sync" and it's almost too late now for gifts isn't it?

Yes! I agree with you 100%!

Remember the show with Rick D. and Shawn K. - “Anything Goes with Rick and Shawn”? (see above vintage ad)

I was looking up the etymology of the word vaudeville last week, as I was getting that nudging feeling that the ‘V’ in QVC might really stand for ‘Vaudeville’ and not ‘Value’, as once was thought.

Am I the only one who gets irked by the Founder of Ultra Repair Cream Lily Gordon?  She just mentioned that the repair cream helps w wrinkles but her face is so overly botoxed up she can barely smile.

The Q just lost me on a $180 mirror. 

See Melissa Epps ditched her $7k gold Cartier bracelet.  Guess wearing it doesn’t give off the illusion as a poor busy mom.

I have a feeling the product offerings will go down hill as we get closer to Christmas.

Food is one of those categories -- especially around any holiday time -- where you definitely want the item to arrive by a certain date....in time for a dinner or other gathering. And as we get past the time when Xmas delivery can be absolutely guaranteed, I think good gift options will be no more. Not that QVC can't push/promote ANYthing as a gift.

I fear the dregs are coming.

Well, if what we've seen are items they thought they could sell the heck out of as gifts, I hate to see what we're left with when they aren't using that "hook" to increase sales.

Some retailers use this time of year to sort of just dump leftovers.....And I really don't want to see QVC's leftovers.....not certainly If those pallet auctions are any indication at all....oh, my. 

Then again, if viewers are into entertainment, in a train wreck sort of way, some might be eager to see Jane T sell a pallet of flameless candles (and whatever else they've had on those pallet sales.)

I groan in agony just thinking about it.

To be fair, when Stacey introduced it tonight, she said they actually debuted it 10 days ago...and teams were already close to selling out. This was literally in her opening statement “launching” it as the Big Deal. Why do they even bother with TSVs/BDs? Why not just call all of them “Please Buy This, We’re Dying and We Can’t Figure Out Why” Bargains?

When has the model Joanne’s hair ever looked like the before? They made it extra flat on purpose. Anyone who watches beauty shows knows that’s not her normal hairstyle. Either way, she’s a beautiful woman.

Am I losing my mind, or is this Jill Bauer in the Philosophy video? It's in today's Items Recently Aired section. A16619, philosophy super-size fragrance 3-in-1 gel & body lotion duo. I know QVC sometimes shows old product videos in Items Recently Aired instead of the most recent presentation, but for heaven's sake, Jill doesn't work there any more. She left in June. I am absolutely positive many other hosts have presented that product since June, so there should have been other videos available.

Strangely enough, the Items Recently Aired video for the exact same product, just on auto delivery, is a presentation by Jen Coffey, done today. A209343, philosophy super-size 3-in-1 gel & body lotion duo Auto-Delivery.  Why didn't QVC use her presentation?

I'm also annoyed by the absence of most of the products presented today in Items Recently Aired. The program guide said All Day Holiday Shopping Spectacular, running from 7 a.m. through 11 p.m. It is now 7:40 p.m. EST, but QVC is only showing 15 products for the last 11 hours in Items Recently Aired. Many of us cannot sit and watch QVC all day. We have to check Items Recently Aired later. So QVC is losing potential sales.

Who the hell is running the QVC site?

^^ Good question.

And...how on Earth can they expect -- given all their recent shipping issues -- anyone to actually trust their word that all items bought today (with a credit card)....really will arrive before Christmas (meaning by next Tuesday)

A a couple weeks back I saw a video for a food item and Sharon Faetsch was in it.  She's been gone over a year now.

Ditto.

In the past month I've also seen presentations with Jackie and also one of the certain host who has been gone for 4 years and we're not supposed to mention.

Still having phone problems.  Shoppers ordering by phone probably don't have an app and aren't comfortable with online ordering.  

The host says bear with us, we know hundreds of you are waiting!  Not good.

The phone call shopper .....  bread and butter for home shopping and soon to be dying breed.  They do no use the internet or internet savvy.  Cannot check the Q reviews, cannot compare prices, trust whatever the Q is spewing.

On QVC's website is there a way to see (ahead of time) -- what's coming up on air. Or what will be featured during a given show?

HSN has that info under "shop items" right in the program guide/schedule grid. But I can't find that info on QVC. (It could be right under my nose and I'm just missing it.)

A LOOOONGG time ago they did have it. But they seem to have stopped. Which I know gives them more flexibility to move items around or reschedule shows. But for me personally as a viewer I tune away if I don't know what's coming up.

(That's just the opposite of what I guess most people would do...stay tuned to see what's coming up. But with the hosts being such an instant click lately, I'm not hanging around if I don't know what's  coming up.)

@selhars, QVC doesn't usually show you what is coming up until the actual show - sometimes they do for ITKWD, but they haven't let you stop ahead. Maybe with all the TSVs being available for multiple days, they might now.

Yes, as a rule they don't show a list of the items in the show. It ticks me off. On JTV, the minute a new show starts, their website lists every item to be shown.

Maybe QVC doesn't want to risk having any items sell out before the host gets to them. They don't show enough items per hour as it is. Also, now that QVC seems to feel they must have an OAP for every presentation, they wouldn't want to have to pay an OAP who couldn't go on air because the product already sold out.

This doesn't make sense for the new shopping environment of online sales. The younger customers aren't watching TV, and they aren't going to sit patiently and wait while the channel drags along product by product. They will click off QVC and go to Amazon.

Did you all hear that Joseph Segel, founder of QVC, passed away today?  He was 88.

I saw them announce it this morning and then Jane Treacy delivered an emotion packed tribute to him. The Q sure has changed from his original concept....and not for the better. I wonder what he thought about the current practices.

Let's see I've had 4 packages from Amazon in the past two days, last minute items I was like I have to get or stuff I needed. All ordered 1 to 2 days from delivery.  Some were to come tomorrow, and I got today.  Just ordered 3 more items today, and I have no doubt I'll get those before I go out of town on 12/24.

I went into an Ulta store last night after work, and it was a madhouse (they had all OPI at 50% off, but the racks were limited in some shades).   After that I was like I'm getting anything else I need from Amazon.  I should've probably ordered what I wanted online, but even to pick up orders at the store seemed to be a pain.  Some woman was waiting for her order as I checked out.  Long line, but I think it was only a 15 to 20 minute wait.  What was horrible was parking and traffic.  People were NUTS!

As for the food items on the Q, how soon until they push for NYE or Valentine's day - or even that snow day that you all know is coming!  While they also push the new year, new you crap again.  

I'm so warped that I when I saw the founder of QVC passed away, I was picturing a slow motion happy dance - or would it be a sorrow dance?  The Q is so cheesy and gimmicky, I really wouldn't put anything past them at this point.

If they thought the carnival barker style would sell, we'd see DV in a straw hat and cane tomorrow.  

Edited to add (sorry too long, but I'm on a roll/rant):  Fulfillment center is almost done?  I couldn't get to the video, got some weird version of the Q site - having issues?  Anyhow, you're  a retailer.  Christmas season is your make or break selling time.  Wouldn't you plan to have your new center up and running in time for your main selling season?

The before/after of the hair up above.  Sigh.  The after picture looks like something rom the show Dynasty.  What's next, shoulder pads and power suits?

Jayne just said that today's TSV (Skechers GO Walk Suede Clog) was so much of a hit the last time it was on( and it might have been a TSV then, also) that they just had to bring it back again.

I tune in at 2p and the largest size -- the 12 is completely sold out in all colors. Jayne said they didn't even have one for here to wear on air.

So they knew it was a hit -- and still didn't order enough?
