Re: NO MORE SETS OF TWO OR MORE

Please, no more complaints about QVC's offerings.  It's that time of year and if you're familiar with QVC, then you know what to expect.

Re: NO MORE SETS OF TWO OR MORE



I like the sets. Yes, sometimes there's a color I don't like or I only need one. If there's one lipstick I really want in a set of three and I don't want two of the three, I will go to the company's own website and order the one I want. Yes, that one item costs more than the one in the set, but it's not a value if I'm not using 2 of the 3. If there's one I don't like but I like 2 of the 3 and the set saves me money compared to buying the two I like elsewhere, I'll buy the set. I can always gift the third item or give it away.

Same with other items. I want two, the set comes with three, I'll give one away. If the set comes with 5 and I need 1, I'll buy one elsewhere.

If the items are tops, it can be trickier. I've bought some top sets where I loved one color and was so-so on the other and found that I really liked both.

Re: NO MORE SETS OF TWO OR MORE

@ChynnaBlue.  I select my purchases the same way.    My family loves the fluffy blankets in colors.   My house has a lot of the tan blankets as they were always the 2nd of the set.  No one needs blankets for now.    I do not mind tops in sets but there are times 1 of the tops does not fit or is flawed.  I hate to return both but the choice is mine.  Sets of items from vendors such as Philosophy and WEN can be great and I save money.

I think that Travelon set of three wallets is a great deal if you need three "little somethings" for gifts.  And it's great to only have to pay one shipping charge.

Re: NO MORE SETS OF TWO

[ Edited ]

     I agree with the OP!!  I have often considered buying an item, only to find out that there are two or three in a set!!  Usually, there is one in the set that I don't like and would not have purchased. 

     I have found this to be true with clothing, accessories and household items. Yes, the S/H is a better deal, but not if one in the set will not be used.

      I also agree that sets (duplicates) of my favorite cosmetics are products that I would purchase. ex - under eye creams, lotions etc.

      PS -  I did not see the other thread on this same topic....oops!!

I agree with OP. I think the Q does this b/c it increases their profit, if enough people buy the sets. Also, since it's holiday season, some people will keep one and gift the other(s) in the set.

If there is a set of two,  one is always a color I don't want,  wouldn't use and don't like,  usually black.   I hate black anything.

Re: NO MORE SETS OF TWO OR MORE

With cosmetics, I definitely think it's getting rid of the old stuff. No thanks for five for the price of one....
