Please, enough of the vacuum cleaners. Both QVC and HSN are pushing every brand of vacuum cleaner you can think of. Dyson, Shark, Bissell, Roomba, Zoomba, and whatever brand I missed.  I turn on QVC, and they are showiing a vacuum. I switch to HSN, and within a minute, they bring out a vacuum. I never have, nor would I buy my SO, a vacuum for Christmas. STOP ALREADY.  LOL!!!

Re: Vacuum Cleaners

[ Edited ]

@Largoman   Many people buy new vacuums and new mattresses repeatedly.   I mentioned the other day there's actually a club for vacuum owners - 90% male -  so maybe a good gift for some SO's.

 

I don't watch jewelry, cosmetic, shoe or winter clothing shows.  There are way more than enough of those for me -  I have an easy way to handle my problem without interfering with QVC's aim to sell to a wide variety of shoppers.

 

ETA -  Vacuum cleaners apparently appeal to far more women than men, so I would assume that's one of the reasons there's offered so often.  I'm with the powers that be on this issue -  I barely watch most of the most popular Forum show shows or hosts.

Maybe you haven't noticed that this is Q's M.O. They air the same dozen products - or variations of - over and over and over and it's been going on for several years. I just don't watch.

@Largoman 

 

My kids ASKED for a vac for Christmas.

 

 

 

Asking QVC and HSN to stop selling anything is a waste of breath.

 

They show on air what they think is going to sell....that's their purpose.

 

I just watch other programming.  I am lucky to have lots of channels besides shopping channels.

I have to agree it is overkill this year.......vacuum's and laptop's over and over and then throw in the non stop gourmet food shows.......yikes!   IMO, and yes I know I can change the channel but the programming has taken a serious nosedive!

I've bought all my vacuums from QVC for years.

 

Do I buy one every time they present one?  Of course not.  But I was delighted when they reaired a TSV so I could get a second since I liked the first one I had bought so much.

QVC's quarterly investor reports ( Qurate is the company, QRTEA stock symbol) say that floor care products are VERY popular sellers and drivers of thier business...

 

As for computets.....they must've taken advantage of HP's dire condition most of this year and bought up everything they could.....

 

Electronics....Vacuums....Makeup....Computers.....Vacuums.....Makeup.....Electronics.... Vacuums.....Makeup.....Electronics...

 

The same ole same ole!!!

 

O yes. Halo Bolts and Mark Charles snips and can openers!!!

 

Thank goodness there's other places to shop online, and almost ALL of them offer some kind of buy now/pay later ( what Q calls "Easy Pay") plans so that isn't even a draw any longer......)

@jackiejenny 

 

I'm taking a four hour nap this afternoon so I can stay up til midnight to watch!!

 

I'm going to try to count how many times JT calls DV "mah honey" ...I've tried before but it got out of hand in about five minutes....!!! 

 

 

I HOPE Mark Charles will have his NEW special David Venable Anniversary Set of snips....say....about twenty in a set, so you can put one in every room, car, flower bed, drawer, or purse so you NEVER have no way cut a piece of wire or snip a section out of a linoleum square again....!!!

 

Red will sell out first!!!!
