I'm going to brag on thrifting.

I'm a bit guilty in that as well.  That is why 2023 is going to be different.  More local shopping and lunchtime only items or may even stop buying from the Q on clothes. 

 

I have a lot of nice clothes from the Q but prices are creeping up more and more and I just don't need to be so foolish about what I buy either.  Sometimes less is best anyway.

When and where are the Lunchtime Specials posted on Q?  Don't see anything on the home page.

Almost everything I liked on Q was found elsewhere for less money, free shipping, even free returns. If not identical, it was darned close. 

 

Shop around. Why pay more?

@CJC Lunch time specials are posted everyday from 11-4  I believe.   You can find it about halfway down the home page.  I have found you can also type it in the search bar any time of the day to see them.

Re: Inquiry about prices on clothing

I am retired and I have to watch my spending!  Of course, I have always tried to get things on sale and not go overboard, but these days I have to be more mindful of my spending.

 

I have to keep reminding myself that prices are a lot higher now, not just on clothing, but on everything!

 

I shop all over the place from Nordstroms, Macy's, here, and then Walmart and every place in between! 

 

If I find an item I really like and it's too high priced for me, then I will search out an alternate item for a much lower price and see if it will satisfy me.  For instance, I might see a cute t-shirt and I feel it's terribly overpriced. So, I will search around and find something which I feel is comparable and at much closer to my price point.

 

I have actually gone to stores, fallen in love with an item and "stalked" it several times, waiting for it to go on sale and hoping that it will still be there when I return again. If it isn't, then I know I wasn't mean to have it!

 

Sometimes also it's better to buy much less clothing, and just go for the higher priced item because that is what you really want!!!

Re: Inquiry about prices on clothing

There are many stores with higher clothing prices than QVC. Tights at Lulemon  can go for $128.00, a top at White House Black Market $110.00, a dress at Chicos $189.00, Kate Spade skirt $328.00., Vineyard Vine Jeans $178.00. QVC clothing prices are not high when a variety of stores are considered.

What seems expensive, or not, depends on what part of the country you're located. A $50 garment sold in one state may or may not seem expensive in another state. Cost-of-living varies form area to area and same goes for how much a person is willing to spend on clothing. The Q doesn't take into consideration where we live. Their prices are what they are.

All good points that I have read. Bottom line what works for you is what you do.  

Happy bargain shopping or Not!🫣

Re: Inquiry about prices on clothing

You can also find a lot of QVC items on eBay. I assume they are returns.
