I've never seen that and I've been a shopper here since the early 90's. maybe if you are an Insider or something. I really wish they would. Between shipping and tax, and lack of any discount codes, I buy most of my stuff elsewhere. The Q should really think about doing something to encourage people to stay and shop with them. There is so much competition out there!

QVC's exorbitant shipping rate is what is keeping it in the black. It's going to go nowhere but up.

I just saw that today 11/26/12, Cyber Monday, there are many items with FREE s/h. I looked through the beauty products and most are the items from the popular lines on the Q. I did not look under the other themes, but there are several - shoes, home, beauty etc etc. But at least FREE s/h....at last, the Q is getting in on the "sales" run. Thanks Q!!

QVC was listed on the Free Shipping site for Dec 17 but I just checked and its no longer listed as participating - FIGURES!

Somehow I doubt anything is free in this world. I'm sure the price has been boosted some.

Doesn't seem like it, but the other shopping channels don't offer a variety products in my opinion. They all seem to be mostly jewelry or watches and lots of clothing. I don't wear jewlelry and I like to try my clothes on. It would cost me more in gas than it does for the shipping to go shopping when I'm not even sure if I'll buy anything. I guess it just depends on what it worth to you, but they don't have many shipping discounts and few free shipping items.

In the past, Q had all day specials $$ off specials for Tax Day, Founders Day, and then everything was on easy pay for Easy Pay Day, etc.

They have gotten away from that.

Obviously they don't feel they need these gimmicks to sell, so they don't use them.


It's the same reason they don't deeply discount stuff when it's on "sale" or "clearance." HSN has a different pricing model. They sell a certain number at the top price, and then they can sell the rest of the inventory for 1/3 of the top price and still make a profit.

The free shipping on select beauty items is a joke. What's with all the Clientele stuff? I haven't seen them present this line on air for years. I was looking for some Peter Thomas Roth items and there are a few but not what I wanted. I guess it's a trip to Sephora.

That is exactly what I thought when I looked at the beauty site!! Never heard of the Clientele brand -- is it new or are they trying to get rid of the Clientele items?? I was looking for specific PTR or Perriccone....nothing there for me!

I scanned the categories and it seems to be items that have been around for awhile- for the most part. Lots of off season clothing for example!

Despite what QVC says, cost can't be the reason people buy most of this stuff. They really don't discount (they throw in some cheap stuff you don't need and jack up the total "price" of the retail), and they really don't have sales or free shipping or other modern incentives. You buy it because you want easy, you like David or Lisa, or you need the easy pay, or you are an impulse buyer who doesn't really care about cost.

Just made a purchase for an item I have in my waitlist here at Q-cheaper and free shipping for Sweet Citrus there than at the Q. Webby-please pass this along-free shipping!!!

Here it is 10 days to Christmas 2012 and still no free shipping and no % off. My daughter sent me her Christmas wish List on QVC this year. I will send her a check and she can buy the items here if she wants, but I can't stand to pay these prices when you can get the same things elsewhere much cheaper.
