QVC has been having tons of clearance sales -- must really be overloaded

I've never seen as many clearance sales on QVC as of late. Especially clothes, clothes, clothes. And some jewelry, too. They've got 500 items on "last clicks" on dot com -- lots more than usual.

I wonder what their earnings report will be like for this quarter and last one. Anyone know if they held their Q2 earnings call yet? I know HSN's is set for August 1st.

Their prices are still way to high compared to different department stores. Mid Feb. I bought 2 beautiful coats on Clearance from JCP, regularly 200.00 for under 30.00 a piece and with a coupon to boot.

Hey Happy - Congrats on those coats!! I love a good deal like that -- plus a coupon. It gives me a chill!

ITA that some of Q's clearance prices are too small a discount -- like only 10% off. But more of the stuff this time around is 30% - 40% off. They've never had this many clearance shows.

Now HSN does know how to do clearance. They have their event over a couple of days and 50% - 60% is the norm.

I saw a Dennis Basso throw on clearance that was appealing until in comparing it to other DB throws of the same size that the s&h charges on the clearance item was far more than the others.

I posted about this the other day in the Q Did What? forum. Now I'm mad about it all over again. {#emotions_dlg.laugh}

What a rip-off.

I bought an item in the clearance section yesterday with EP & free shipping. I couldn't justify it when it was presented. I guess it pays to wait.

ITA! That and the fact that many of the fashions offered on QVC are just not fashionable in my book, plus they offer the same items for years.

I've never been very impressed with Q's sales either.

Their clearance is ridiculous. I remember seeing a bath product in their clearance at one point for about $18 but I passed on it. Now it is out of their clearance and it's priced at $25 now.

{#emotions_dlg.glare} I have often seen prices go up in their supposed 'clearance' prices.

It's just another label to make you run to the phones. Their "clearance" prices are nothing more than their TSV or OTO prices. There's one born every minute.

Yes, you're right about the s&h charges. I got a couple of strings of Christmas lights last year and they still had them in stock over the weekend and were marked down to about $9, but the s&h was about $9. I just couldn't bring myself to buy them eventhough I needed more. I can get lights locally for less than $18 and no s&h.

They should have a policy that anything that goes on clearance should have free s&h if they really want to move it.

Okay, but don't you be hatin' when you see how gorgeous I look in it. Is is polyester knit, you know. And I got the brown heather as the green heather and blue heather were all sold out. I so wanted all three {#emotions_dlg.crying}

Don't know if the Q still does this but... IMO, they don't have good clearance sales...They have the regular price @ 39.98 but the CLEARANCE price is 36.50....SAY WHAT !!! I like when I'm out and find a TRUE clearance sale,....like 40% off the already reduced price,or 75% off....Now thats a SALE.

As far as I'm concerned, a good clearance price is 50% off and more. A few dollars off doesn't make it.

The Q does not jack up the prices to begin with, the way department stores do.

That said, I don't shop on the site for bargains. Values, yes. Bargains, no.

My personal feeling is that shipping/handling are high because the return rate is unusually high, so blame the customers. The cost is absorbed by other customers who do _not_ abuse a generous return policy.

I will always shop retail/bricks and mortar for bargains, though. I don't look to Q for those--though once in a great while there may be one.

The Q does not offer very many good sale prices as far as I see. When I see "clearance" I expect a deep discount...a few dollars is not a clearance as far as I am concerned. They also almost never offer free s&h and that buy more and save if usually ridiculous...who wants 7 of the same thing? I shop online only when there is free s/h and good sale offers. The Q has an attitude of being so much more classy than other sites on tv/the web. Come on, some of the stuff they shove on the public is ridiculous.

You are so right, Speedy. Saw for a few minutes last night, S. Graver had a 2-hour show of nothing but clearance and 4-5 ep......that's a sign right there no one is buying like they used to. Of course, I'm not a fan of her clothing, but I do have a couple of pieces and I haven't seen anything of hers I have liked in a long time.

I love to laugh and dance......
