This is hardly a clearance sale!

I rarely watch QVC anymore but I have tuned in here and there over the course of today and have checked the website. Most of these so-called "clearance" items are 15-20% off. PLEASE!!! EVERY retailer has been offering huge discounts. I haven't been tempted by anything. I did purchase the TSV but, my experience w/ Peace Love World has been somewhat disappointing overall.  Her items tend to pill quickly.

Shoppers, be aware of the "up" to 40% off tactic.  Usually only a very few items are 40% off or whatever the highest percentage is.  Common among all retailers.  

 

It's their way of sucking us in and even though most items are not 40% off, they hope we'll see something we "must" have at a much lower percentage off.

I’ve seen their clearance sale more than once when the sale price was a whopping 4 cents lower.

That's why they push the value pays  and rare free shipping. No win here. Just  prepare to pay if you really want to try whatever they are selling .

There is nothing on QVC that I "must" have.  I only purchase when there's a significant price reduction and/or free shipping.  Too many other places where quality, value and convenience are more affordable.

QVC has never (in 30-some years, at least) had a real sale. Never expect one.

 

If you buy something "on sale," if you really want it--that's it. Don't look at the few dollars you might be saving.

I haven't seen any real deep discounts on the Q lately. A few months ago they had the very last chance (final) sale, which gave deep discounts. Not much since.

Usually QVC's "sale price" is $2 to $3 off the original price....hardly a reason to get excited...😄

The TSV’s also used to be a much higher savings.  Now you order after the TSV, it might be $4-$5 higher.  I look, I buy some, but nothing earth shattering AT ALL here.  

 

My biggest disappointment was a Judith Ripka pendant I bought several years ago.  TSV was about 129, two months later it was about $49.  Of course the color I bought was still in stock at $49.  I know your color could have been gone.  But that was a BIG drop, so close to the TSV date.  (That’s when I realized the one time only price was the prices guaranteed for six months.  Not TSV’s).

Re: This is hardly a clearance sale!

ha yeah and I always love that the "clearance" prices go UP again! My recollection is that most retail clearance sales are priced to move.

 

I had watched one show, I think Nancy hosted it and honestly she said over and over again that the clearance prices would expire at the end of the day. I got tired of hearing it and there wasn't anything I was really interested in so I changed the channel.

 

I did buy a jacket that I had my eye on when they offered free shipping AND it was lower priced than when I originally saw it.
