This shipping decrease will definitely work for QVC since they increased prices to cover it.

I have been waiting for the D & C Elbow length cardigan to come back in stock and it did. Now it is 3.50 more. How stupid do they think we are?

But so many people around had be complaining about shipping and handling costs - and QVC lowered them.

There's a ""law of unintended consequences."" QVC is not a non-profit corporation.

Pretty much it's gonna cost the same no matter how it is broken down ...higher ship=lower price.Lower shipping=add it to price. It's always gonna come out to benefit the profits of any company.

I guess they were hoping we wouldn't notice. I'll be more selective when making Q purchases as a result of these pricing policies. It will be interesting to see how it affects their profits this year.

There's a "law of unintended consequences." QVC is not a non-profit corporation.

What they did was play a shell game.

The course they've taken—raising prices by the exact amount to cover the "reduced" shipping charge AND rescinding the refund of original s/h— is clearly not what so many expected of a company they've always trusted to give them a fair deal. It's also regressive, counter-intuitive in terms of their competition, and consumer-unfriendly.

I know it's changed my perception of QVC, a company I once admired.

Re: This shipping decrease will definitely work for QVC since they increased prices to cover it.

Are you saying they have increased all of their prices , ? The items I have on my wish list are all the same price as they were before.

I am so tired of these random statements. Unless you are privy to their "strategy" meeting notes, you really don't know.

I come to the forums to read reviews on products and see what's coming. Seems the forums are basically all complaints.

If it bothers you that much, don't watch or buy.

I didn't mind the old shipping costs so much, and at least they refunded the original shipping. But apparently they were tired of listening to people complaining, so they changed it--so live with it.

I'm going to LL Bean for outer wear and casual now because their t-shirts made of pima cotton are about the same price as Denim Co. now, and better quality and free shipping both ways. Can't beat that!
