QVC

Recommended Posts

Clothing has gone up everywhere, though.  Why would QVC be any different?

My only reference point is Talbots.  I used to be able to get a suit for around $300ish.  Now, it's around $400.  A pair of pants that were $99 are now $119 or $129.

Of course, I wait for a sale......but still, pricing has gotten expensive.

Qvc isnt selling suits. They're selling fast fashion that can be had for half the price at Kohls or Macy's. Their prices are prohibitively high.

True, a suit isn't the same, comparably speaking.  I shop a lot at Macy's, too.  Unless it's on sale, their pricing has gone up, as well.

My point was that prices for EVERYTHING are going up EVERYWHERE.  Food, cars, gas, clothing, home stuff.  You name it, the price has gone up.  QVC is no different.

Could be.  I don’t do much shopping for clothes in stores right now, but I have noticed price increases in food and at Target.  Just saying for me, $50 for a top is something I have to think about, and I see it more and more at QVC.

Has anyone else noticed that some items on air live do not show up on the web site?  I usually don't watch live, but I do check the "recently on air" items on the web site.  I just happened to have ITKWD on Sunday, and I wanted to order the Germack (sp??) nuts.  I went to the web site, and the "on air now" was the trash can that had been the previous item.  Then the item following the nuts showed up, but the nuts never did.  I called and placed a phone order, but that product was just not listed as being in the show.  They don't seem to have a problem with continuing to show an item that is sold out, so why did an existing an in-stock item get skipped?  It seems like someone is not paying attention.  I don't watch live much at all.  Does skipping items on the web site happen often?

I've noticed that.  I'm wondering if it's because those items have sold out?

And sometimes they show up on the app but not the website. 
I guess they don’t want people to actually see what they are (or aren’t) getting.

Does Jen Coffey make lot of weird faces or is it just me? I remember when I used to confuse her and Kerstin up when they first started. I’m not sure why though. They don’t look at all alike. 

When I first started watching her I thought she made weird expressions with her face too.

@Booney has done several series of Jenimations ( hope I spelled it righr). 😁 They're hilarious.

If she's had a nose job it seems her upper lip doesn't move naturally. It looks pulled up when she smiles just like when a horse neighs. Not wanting to sound mean but that's what it reminds me of. I worked with someone who had a nose job and her top lip did the same thing after the surgery. It was weird to see...

OK, just have to give a shout out to QVC Customer Service/Social Team. I sent a note yesterday asking about a missing package (surprise! That Never happens!). Anyway, I got a response within a few minutes that their system was down and they would look into it. This morning I got another note asking if I wanted a replacement since they were unable to track the package and within 5 minutes of responding, they had it sent out with upgraded shipping. I think the best avenue for any kind real help is that social team. They are empowered to make things right and are super responsive. OK - back to our regular programming.

So glad you got your issue resolved.

But it's sad to me that a company has a customer service team that isn't empowered to take care of their customers, while a social team is..........

In my case, the item was still available and I was able to order by phone.  Usually (at least I think it is usually), the item still shows on the "items recently on air" program, but is faded out with a sold out sign.  Just not showing up at all was a new one for me.  They don't seem to mind running shows and showing sold out items as available, so I just don't get this one.

The tsv Mr. Christmas 2' candles look kind of cheap to me. More ways to junk up Christmas! The Q even put them in those GIANT lanterns!

Well, they're made of plastic and weigh 2 pounds each (I'm guessing not including the batteries), so there you go. 

Wonder how many people will be calling Q to ask for the item number for those lanterns (do they sell them?).

Did I miss the announcement from QVC about Christmas in September?  I caught myself feeling a little warm and fuzzy, even anticipatory, when I heard some jovial Christmas music when I flipped the channel to QVC yesterday.  Then I realized it's September.  Not July....not November.  It's September.

Maybe they are doing it now, since that's how long all this Christmas stuff takes to arrive at your door?  In any event, it's just too soon.

I just read something about how the overseas shipping infrastructure can't possibly handle the increased buying already going on: Shipping Crisis The person quoted even suggests consumers start holiday ordering now.

Or we could all take a freaking break from the frenetic "gotta buy stuff for people" mindset, which has morphed from largely symbolic religious customs.  Let the supply chain be righted, however long that may take.  Have dinner with your family/friends and pocket the result.  I have a feeling we're going to need it in our pockets far more than wrapped under our spectacular, bedazzled, pre-lit, $1,000 trees.

Edit - never mind me, lol.  Carry on.

I sometimes have this issue when looking at the Q2 “items currently on air” site, in which it will only show the ONE item currently on air.  Happened again tonight, but it is rather random.

Anyone else?
