Promo code misinformation

[ Edited ]

got an email from synchrony Bank that promo code Qcardsummer23 would give a discount of 20% on one order total. No limit was specified on how many items I could order. so I tried to order two items. total was $302.50 prior to taxes. there was no shipping charge for either items. theoretically I should be getting $60.50 off. it did not. called customer service waited for an hour. finally spoke with Skyler eho proceeded to tell me that there was a cap of $20. nowhere in the email does it say that there's a cap of $20 it says 20% off your order. curiously when I just put in the makeup it actually gave me 20%. but when I added the boots that pushed it up to $302.50 it took off the 20% off the makeup and just put a flat $20 credit on the boots. I asked for a manager and no one is available they will call me back in 4 hours. really bad customer service all around from the misinformation in the email that did not specify there is a $20 cap to who wants to wait around for 4 hours for a manager which they never call back anyway. I have been a long time customer of QVC. I've never had any problems but this misinformation with the promo code and the lack of customer service especially a rep telling me that no managers are available what is that all about. my next step will be to email corporate about the issue with the promo code and also customer service or lack thereof.

Re: Promo code misinformation

I got the same offer, but mine clearly says "maximum savings of $20" on top of the small print.

Re: Promo code misinformation

Mine did too.  I used it for a $76.99 item and got approx $16.00 off.

Re: Promo code misinformation

I copied the entire email that I received and as you can see maximum savings of $20 was missing on my email. I'm sure a lot of people don't read the fine print and just go oh goody I'm getting 20% off of my order I always read the fine print and I'm appalled that they would send me an email with such misinformation

Re: Promo code misinformation

so I ordered the makeup. that gave me the full 20% off. only spent around $40 with the discount. if QVC had honored the promo code As written in the email that they sent me that I would have spent around $245! way to go QVC! they lost dollars and I'm sure many more customers are doing the same thing. I wonder shopping channels are struggling. instead of someone in customer service saying yes we can go ahead and honor that since you got an email not specifying and then QVC would have gotten 245 instead of the paltry sum of 40. oh well.

This was the email I received—it's pretty hard to miss the $20 max detail at the top:

And all that shared, I'd like to thank QVC and Synchrony for this perk! It is rare to even get such promos, let alone during a free shipping event, and I spent mine well.  Smiley Happy

Re: Promo code misinformation

that may have been on the QVC website but in the email I got as I copied and pasted it it never said anything about a $20 cap. maybe synchrony and QVC should get their facts straight before sending out these promotions

Re: Promo code misinformation

If you have pictures blocked on incoming email and didn't download them or get email as plain text only, you wouldn't see the graphic part of the email.  The email I got was exactly as posted by loriqvc, graphics and all.

Re: Promo code misinformation

I think.it is a mixed message. It stated 20% off * but it should have stated maximum is $20 off.. The asterisk is a given that their is more information concerning the 20% off. So, I can understand the confusion. Just poorly written.
