“Something special” coming on Sunday. Generally means free shipping or EZ Pay. If it is free shipping again, hopefully the website can handle it this time. During the free shipping day last weekend, took me several tries throughout the day to place my order. Their website continues to be awful.

busy raising prices to offset freeship as well

Whatever the "something special" is, given past history the odds are it's going to be as exciting as finding out you're getting a $1 refund on your income taxes.

QVC must be outsourcing website design and maintenance to the cheapest overseas company they could find... and then they get what they paid for.

I think I spotted a QVC clothing shopper in public today. She was wearing what looked like a LOGO top (olive green with sharkbite hem) and Denim & Co pink floral chintz crop pants and gold sandals. She did not have an entourage.

Just had the thought that there could be a TSV Boredom Scale based upon household chores.  You know, the TSV is so boring I'm instead going to:

Do laundry

Dust

Deep-clean the bathrooms

Wash the windows

Pull weeds

Clean out the refrigerator

Polish the silverware

Polish the furniture

Clean out the closets

Clean out the attic/basement/garage

etc

The above is listed in no particular order.

I have trouble watching the presentation of the Kuhn Rikon shears.  I own them and they do cut as advertised.  I was using mine for cutting flowers while arranging altar flowers at church, and I managed to completely cut off my index finger pad.  Luckly, I did not cut the whole finger tip off, since these are sharp enough to cut through bone.  These really do cut!  My wound did heal, but my finger will never feel or look the same.  Please be careful if you have these.

I don’t think I’m allowed to be around sharp objects. My skin is so thin I can now avulse layers of skin on the back of my hands and lower arms simply by scraping them on the side of a table!  Not a pretty sight. Sometimes my hands and arms look like I’ve been in a fight.

I have purchased a couple of (cheap) pairs, before Q heard of them btw, and I can tell you that the ones I bought anyway are a pain in the ass.  The lenses always seem dirty, and almost distorted.

I'm done with 'em.

The designer of these shoes said you would turn heads in these shoes.....yep.  You sure would!  It looks like a wild animal is clawing at Amy's ankle!

Now, I like a good shoe and I have been known to throw down on a pair that was perfect.  But I can't imagine a time that I would spend $199 on these.

(And P.S.  You can buy matching pairs for your daughters and granddaughters for $99 ! )

Even the ones you get by prescription with the blue light feature get dirty right quick.

I'm experiencing that problem, too. I bought a pair last year. I haven't noticed any benefit. The lenses are dirt magnets that are hard to clean even with a microfiber cloth.

Thank you for confirming that I'm not the only one who has noticed this.  Personally, the next time I need to get new lenses I'll decline the blue light addition, since mobile devices and computers all have blue light reduction features I can activate into use.

I've watched a few times, especially since I've heard you say this, thinking I could maybe get through an hour while eating my lunch, but I honestly don't see much difference! 

In what way do you think she's improved?  Seriously asking, not trying to be confrontational! 

Maybe it's that, for the most part, all the other hosts at QVC are such wildly portrayed characters that she just "seems" more tolerable and normal?  I'll give you that she's not obnoxious or in your face about anything and seems very sweet.

Anyone buy yesterday’s TSV? Love the chicken upsell shtick. Being a million years old, I can remember when chicken was 69cents/lb. Wings were 39cents/lb and considered greasy meatless throw-aways. I’ve never tried Corky’s, so maybe I’m a culinary Neanderthal. No offense to Neanderthals.

Today’s TSV is a gut buster as well... Pricey HP computers built for email and candy crush only? OAP spiel specifically states these are bottom feeding machines not fit for anything beyond casual use.

I find it hilarious that they're saying the actual retail value is over $1100 because of all the add-ons.  The HP protection is useful, and the 1-year Microsoft Office is nice, but then they add all that trial-basis bloatware to make it look like you're getting an outstanding deal. 

But at least they're finally being honest about what these laptops are capable of; I remember reading the product pages back when they were selling various HP laptops in the lead-up to Christmas and one of the most common questions was whether they were suitable for gaming because the person asking wanted to buy one as a gift. 

As for the chicken, I found the timing of the TSV to be rather interesting since last week it was proclaimed from the rooftops there is a nationwide shortage of chicken.

Let’s dissect the Corky’s TSV chicken thing... If Hulk-sized legs flooded the cyber marketplace yesterday, humongous breasts, backs, wings and thighs can’t be far behind. I can see a national shortage due to a pandemic domino effect. QVC must’ve grown their own.
