Please Give people the choice of buying ONE. Do not need 2 sets of anything.

I hate this time of year. I don't have family. I don't have many people to gift to. Almost every item at this time of year, starting way back in October, is coming in sets of 2 or 4 or more (of any item).

 

I realize it boosts your sales but it really is not fair to people who do not have big families, do not give hundreds of gifts, or go to fancy gala's, or know anyone who wants the second set of kitchen stuff that's offered. It happens every year.

 

The least you could do is Buy One for $abc or buy 2 for $xyz (even if buying one was $5.00 more). I would pay a few extra bucks to be able to buy just ONE.

 

I don't like the pairings they did with the lug purses, so it would also be nice to make my own pairing if I was able to buy 1 or 2.

 

I don't understand why you force us to buy multiples of anything. There are more people (imo) that have cut back on gift giving, do not have families anymore, do not have "gift drawers" to put them into, or any other sales words they use.

 

I really need a small bag like this TSV, and these seem to hold "just enough" of what I would carry but I would be paying for 2, just to get one that I want and one I don't want.

 

PLEASE QVC, give us a choice of buy one or two! This happens every single year. There is a whole lot of people you cut out of buying because you just assume people have "gift drawers" or big families. The world has changed. Even people that do have big families have pared down gift giving.

There are people out there like you. Many in retirement communities-they would love a visit. Not gifts,just a warm and a happy holiday.

I feel the same way about a set of 4 kitchen shears. I would only need 1 or 2 at the most. Not everyone has a shop, craft room, garage, basement, etc.

Totally agree...saw the plaid and really wanted it but I don't need two especially since I bought this lug in a similar color as a TSV earlier this year which the plaid is being paired with.

I couldn't agree more. Aside from the multiple holiday products, my pet peeve continues all year long. I don't want multiples of beauty products. These products have expiration dates and lose their potency before I can use all of the products in an order. Two 64 oz bottles of Philosophy bath wash for a single person will last two years. In addition, the bottles are too large to handle.

@LUV 2 SHOP Agree with you!  Then they want you to get auto ship & you get another in 6 months when you've still got most of the original giant mega size.  It takes forever to use up those mega sizes!  Your tired of them by the time you do. 

 

@gabstoomuch I only have men to buy for. They think everyone has lots of women to gift. No they dont!

Well said and I agree. Many times I don't buy because I don't want two.  Your idea of pricing makes perfect sense to me and would gladly pay a few dollars more for one.

I agree!  There are many items I pass on simply because I only want one, not two or three or more.

100% agree!

 

Many times I want the item, but refuse to buy more than one because one is all I need.  

 

So I then go to the brand's own website, or Amazon.  In nearly all cases I get exactly what I want outside of QVC, in a single item.  So I pay less than the TSV, regardless of their boasting of the value for buying two or more.  It's not a value if I have to pay more money, to "save" money on buying multiples.  Crazy math.

 

Grocery stores do the exact same thing.  But at least there I can easily just buy one.

Amazon would be a good choice for you. Not only do they have mostly single purchases the item can often be delivered by the next day.
