Vocabulary for show hosts to eliminate in 2020

If I never hear these words on QVC again, I would be grateful:

 

1. color wave

2. price point

 

Please just say color or price.

@mnbvcxz  it probably does not matter to your conversation, but they are saying "colorway" not color wave.

There are many words and ideas these hosts spew every day that are nonsense.

I never really understood the "colorway" verbage.  Why not just say we have X colors?  Colorway is a real word (unlike many they make up).  I guess they think it makes them sound more sophisticated or something.

I'm not a fan of "pop of color".

They have worn out "first and foremost".  They must have all gotten a memo to use it.  Geez.

COME ON IN!   It's like I'm being invited to watch TV. Ah, no. It's my TV & I can change the channel when I want which is more & more frequently. And if I hear Tara (temp ta tions lady) or anyone else say "It's so stinkin' cute" that's an immediate channel changer.
