PIA cuff TSV as an OTO--a rude awakening!

Started 1355444550.337 in Judith Ripka | Last reply 1355955239.553 by Debbie1426

What is the point of rushing in to take advantage of a TSV when it shows up nine months later as an OTO? Honestly, I'm shocked! I feel taken in as well. I bought this cuff as a TSV thinking it would save me money only to realize that I paid $100 more than I might have if I had waited. Why, when there are so many items in the Ripka inventory, would the powers that be make a move like this? I'm disheartened!

So happy I opened this thread. I never knew the TSV wasn't the lowest price. I watch less and less Q, but I'll need to take special notice of how they present TSVs vs OTOs.

In the State of Illinois, it's fraud to make this claim (that the TSV was the lowest price that it would ever be) and reneg. Don't know about your state, but the IL Attorney General could file a claim for every instance of this practice because the Q broadcasts here. The Q should take note on its claims.

I've heard many hosts claim that the TSV is the lowest price that an item will ever be. If the host says it, the Q has to back it.

If QVC misrepresented this in the TSV presentation in order to get it sold (saying it was limited edition when it was not, or having a host say it is at the lowest price when it isn't), then anyone that bought it at the higher price should have a good argument. CS doesn't have the authority to do anything on price adjustment after 30 days, you have to talk to corporate. I'm still waiting for a callback from the message I left at corporate. If anyone gets a response from them, I'd certainly like to hear what it is.

I have seen many TSV's (across the board - jewelry, clothing, houseware, etc.) go to clearance, lunchtime specials, limited quantity, etc. Maybe they mean that they would be lowest "full" prices but EVERYTHING eventually goes on sale. Silly to expect that it would not.
