you have to do a comparison.

the ones that qvc are selling in a set of two are LARGER than the junior size set of two that HSN is selling.....that is the difference @I am appleblossom .

On the other hand I think these are almost the exact same item and it is $15 more at HSN and $2 more shipping. There are minor differences but I can't tell if there is any appreciable difference.

Many times when i am interessted in an item  on QVC , I check Amazon too. And almost all the time Amazon has the same item for a lot cheaper and free shipping. Ryka shoes, Sketchers shoes, yesterday a chrismas wreath i was interested in. Always check with Amazon . You would be surprised.

Be careful, Amazon plays a lot of pricing games too....I'd check with several retailers other than QVC, HSN, and Amazon.....

I think that the one on HSN is a smaller version.  It's the Jr. with 6 disks not 7.  Unless they have another.
