I placed an order with Talbots two Fridays ago and just got it yesterday, delivered by USPS on a Sunday, which was a little shocking.  It didn't ship out for almost 8 days and then it took USPS another 7 to 8 days to deliver it from Massachusetts.  Talbots hasn't always had the fastest shipping, but they've been better than 16 days.

Did LOGO have a two hour show today?  I wasn’t expecting any fashion tonight, so didn’t turn on the TV until reading someone’s comment here in another thread.

Logo is two hours every Monday now. It changed maybe a month ago?

I enjoy Rick, but I’m underwhelmed by the big 35th birthday kickoff. 

So far, the best parts have been the throwback photos and Alberti singing “Happy Birthday.”

I’d rather see the OAPs on Zoom or Skype than have them in the studio, but sometimes I get distracted by the background. I found myself tuning out the air/heat OAP and staring at her photo of the horse on the wall.

I received a phone call this morning from QVC.  The message was something about a shipment delay on an order, I think.  "This is QVC.  Your order will be delayed.....This is QVC.  Your order will be delayed.......This is QVC etc over and over.  I still have no idea what package or when it will arrive.  I did not get an email, just this strange call.  Then, the call would not stop.  I couldn't hang up, it just kept repeating.  I had to turn my whole phone off and restart it to get the message to stop.

Also, has anyone noticed how many "picture coming" notices there for product?  They have had the presentation, but the can't get a picture on the site.  This is happening more and more often.  Strange.

QVC is not the same quality company it once was, and it is going downhill rapidly, both in product quality and host quality.

I hope I get whatever it is I ordered.  But, who knows?

I get the emails that tell me an item is being delayed, but don’t identify the item.

Have also noticed the lack of photos for items.  So aggravating!  Even if there is a video (not always), I don’t want to have to watch a video!  Show me the item and the colors. Don’t sell it if you can’t give the necessary info to your customers.

That is a weird message from QVC!

Yes, I've noticed the pictures have been missing for some time now - almost a year this has been going on. 

Another thing that's been odd is with clothing.  Not that I eve look that much at their clothing, but when I do and I try and click on the link that will give me the item's measurements to see if I should order an XXS or a small (Ha! Ha! - in my dreams, I'm an XXS just like all the hosts!), it won't come up and says "not available at this time, try again later".  It's hit or miss when this happens but it's annoying and they lose a possible sale, because I'm not chancing it!

I just called QVC and was connected to an agent very quickly.  No hold time at all! (shock). She was extremely nice, and it is some Denim and Co pants that are delayed, but will be shipped, and should arrive in July.   That seems like a long time to wait for a staple item.  At least, unlike a Lock n Lock item that will not be arriving, the pants will get here eventually.  I still don't understand the strange phone call.  I'm wondering how much longer QVC will keep going.

I’m giving a side eye to today’s TSV...premium ‘reserve’ steakhouse quality ribeyes.

These steaks look paper thin. More like a sandwich steak than a traditional 1 inch cut. (Ray R said to cook 2 minutes on each side)

When demonstrated they are sliced in half and stacked to appear bigger than they are. I could easily see these things quickly converted to shoe leather.

This may not apply to you, depending on what device you're using to access QVC, but... have you tried using a different browser? I use a Windows 10 desktop, and normally use the Firefox browser, with Chrome as my backup browser. Last week, for the first time I was unable to place orders on the Macy's website using Firefox. Every time I clicked "Add to bag," a red error message would come up saying there was a technical problem on their end. It said try again later, or place the order through their 800 phone number. I switched over to Chrome, didn't get any error messages, and had no problems placing the order. I figure Firefox must have done an update and screwed something up.

There are frequent discussions on the QVC forums about problems people have with the website, and I've noticed that often it depends on their device. For example, some people using iPad can't see garment measurements when they click, but people who reply say they are using the mobile app on their phone and can see the measurements. Check Q Talk, Suggestion Box, and Customer care threads for technical problems discussions. (QVC forums do not have a "Bugs" thread like we do here, so website problems questions are scattered around.) Sometimes people discuss website problems in Community Chat too.

I hear you - and I, too, use Firefox with Chrome as a backup!  So, I'm aware that sometimes it's my device that's the issue versus QVC.  However, I consider this a QVC problem - I went through the usual "stuff", thinking it was me, but on other items, the link worked and the dimensions came up.....so I just assumed it was on their end, not mine!

Agree. In the same vein, I couldn’t believe they were selling 10 flounder filets for $72.68. Flounder? This is something you can buy in any supermarket for far less money.

There seems to be a shortage of truck drivers, so I guess essentials like food would be transported first. I don't know the reason for the driver problem.

Cute pet time again on QVC. This is the Serta Perfect Sleeper Mattress Pad H-224775 OAP and her dog Monty.

Monty was asleep when she started the presentation. Courtney commented on how sleepy he was, and the OAP said it was past his bedtime. He was startled when she started moving and talking, so he rolled over. Then he got comfortable and tried to go back to sleep. She kept talking and demonstrating pouring liquids on the pad, interrupting his relaxation, so he opened his eyes a few times.

The OAP said this pad was useful if you drink liquids in bed, or spill something, or your pet who sleeps on your bed has an accident.  I guess we can say the mattress pad is Monty-approved! He knows that the pad will keep him out of trouble with his human, since he won't ruin her mattress.

I like the idea of the Shark vac mop, which I've seen advertised for a few months now, but I don't want to get wrapped up in purchasing more pads just to keep using it.   I'd like it much better if they used microfiber pads you could throw in the wash.

I will just say that I have the Shark VacMop from the last time they had it as the TSV and I love it. I got extra pads in advance from Amazon and it is great for pet hair and messes. It only works on hard floors, so I have a different Shark for the carpet. I really have been happy with products from this line.

I’m glad to hear this. I bought it. I recently moved into a house with all hardwood floors and have been struggling with how to keep them clean. Then to add another challenge, I adopted a puppy 🐩. So my house has now become a home. And I really look forward to receiving this item.

Is Pat wearing headbands in honor of the Q’s 35th Anniversary? If not, she’s definitely giving me 90’s vibes. All we need is for her to start wearing the flower dresses with a white background. Please someone tell me they remember that look?! It was literally a flower explosion and in hindsight the dress were not flattering on anyone.

Does it work on hardwood floors?  Special type of cleaner needed?  (I have not watched a presentation.)

Yes it does need a special cleaner and you can only use theirs which is hard to find and cost way too much; the same goes for the replacement pads.  This quote below from Benchwarmer is exactly how I feel.  

I bought this in 2020 when it was a Today's Special at HSN.  It's cheap looking and made of cheap plastic.  The vacuuming portion can only be used on hardwood/tile floors and really isn't as good as my regular vacuums.

The solution holder doesn't hold much solution and it's gone very quickly.  I couldn't buy refills at HSN, Amazon, Target or anywhere that I looked and as stated below the solution wasn't cheap to buy.  Ditto for the pads which at least I could buy from HSN if I had to. 

In the end I tossed it in the garbage.  One person here loves it, but I didn't.  I think you should read some of the reviews at Amazon and at HSN and you'll see how many said what I've said.

Really? I have several bottles in reserve from Amazon that O ordered when I bought the mop vac. I use mostly I my living room and kitchen and use to for [et hair and paw prints on the laminate hardwood. Also on the kitchen and bathroom floors. I am sorry it didn't work for you.

I think it's the style of the dress. That is a retro design, the tiered skirt. It's not something fashion forward you'd expect from Jason Wu, with his design reputation. I thought his whole QVC collection was kind of boring.

I guess we all know QVC "fashion" doesn't equal innovative or fashion forward.   It's a good place to earn some quick bucks, perhaps to fund other endeavors.

Yes, but it had more tiers. (And got bad reviews) I ordered one of the Jason dresses but canceled after seeing it on more people. I think it requires a full slip to not show bra and underwear lines. And that would defeat the airiness of the dress.
