This is crazy - do you pull up the program guide to see the tsvs for the week? I do since I don't get emails on tsvs anymore. 

 

D&Co had beach pants a week or two ago, today it's a jean jacket, and WHAT???? is this a mistake? Another D&Co next Monday???  

 

What is up with this???!!!

I do check out the programming guide as you do to get an idea at least of what will be the TSV.  I wish the Q would have the same guide as HSN as on there you are able to see the "items" that will be presented each hour of the day ahead of time.  Their TS is always the first item in the midnight program but is not priced as the special yet.    On here it's anybody's guess.

 

And yes  it's D&Co overload lately.

@LindaSal   lol  I still remember when many posters kept wanting to go back to the old way of maintaining the mystery of the TSV,

 

As usual, be careful what you wish for  -  what you get may not turn out to be what you thought you'd get.    

 

I can't say I'd buy more if I knew what the TSV was ahead of time, but I understand why frequent shoppers like that.  When QVC worked the old way, my job required me to be up and moving by 5 am.  Most days I either didn't ever see QVC on weekdays or a huge portion of the TSV had already been sold.   The pressure to order during the shows was more subtle than is currently the choice in many businesses, but in some ways that pressure was more powerful.

I think its cute.  The colors are cute.  Don't mind the frayed hem.  It's different.  I don't need one but if I did, it would be a hard choice.  I even passed up on a Levi denim jacket @ BJ's for $4

@PINKdogWOOD   Same as everywhere -   they have to try to sell what they have an adequate supply of. 

 

By personal choice, I shop clothing close to 100% locally, but even here with many local stores open, I'm finding 2024 an easy year to wear what I already have instead of buying lots of new.  Not many places stock adequate stock in clothes that I like and that fit me.

@PINKdogWOOD     I always pull up the program guide in my directv.  I can see the brand that's going to be doing the TSV for at least two weeks.  I like knowing.  

Since it's showing D&Co Beach, I'm betting it's a swimsuit.

QVC is pushing spring and summer clothing and garden supplies, so you will see more clothing shows and more clothing TSV's each year ahead of early spring and fall.

 

In the summer, they will start pushing fall, winter and Christmas stuff.  

As with most businesses, they need to move their items a season ahead.

 

A family member of mine works for the Hershey Company.  He told me this past Saturday that they are producing Christmas candy...What?

 

I said maybe it's Halloween candy, he said no, Christmas.  I suppose businesses work way ahead of each holiday and season.  

No wonder the stores first introduce Christmas stuff beside the fall stuff when parents are shopping for back to school clothing.

@PINKdogWOOD 

 

I don't get the TSV emails anymore either!

 

I have NEVER changed my status.  I checked it and it is the same.

 

I didn't get the recent 'offensive email' or the  'apology' email either.

 

 

I do get email conf. on orders and NUMEROUS shipping emails....too many in fact!   LOL

 

I do get emails asking me to 'review'.....but no more TSV emails, promo emails etc.

 

Weird.

Ewww so that means the candy we purchase in December could be 9 months old?

@rockygems123   Yep, that crossed my mind too.

 

I am sure all food companies do the same thing.

 

There is a reason frozen and canned food contains so much salt.  They need to preserve it for a long time.
