    Looks like one of the things I was afraid of… from QVC/parent company’s acquisition of HSN… has happened :cry:

    One of HSN’s best perks is their shipping. They offered 1/2 price shipping after the first item if you order multiples of the same item (i.e. including different color/size) or multiple items in the same category (i.e. Beauty products, Fashion products) on the same day, shipping to the same address.

    I noticed this is no longer true today :facepalm:

    Instead, I now see a lot of HSN Beauty and Fashion items at $3.00 shipping (looks just like QVC) and when I add more products to the cart … each subsequent item is an additional $3.00 shipping :thumbdown:

    This makes it less fun to shop… like today… when there’s a lot of awesome Perlier items around the clock since they’re the TS :gaah:

    Here’s an example screenshot of my cart with 3 pairs of DG2 jeans – before the shipping would have been something like:

    1st jean’s shipping $3.95

    2nd jean’s shipping $1.97

    3rd jean’s shipping $1.97

    TOTAL SHIPPING $7.89

    Now, the total shipping is $3.00 each x 3 jeans = $9.00

    :bad: :bad:   That stinks!

    Figures that QVC would infect HSN with its shipping policies!

    I once read that is where QVC makes a lot of its money because you pay to get it and then you pay to return it.

    :gaah: Do they not realize that after a certain point, the shipping is a deterrant to purchase, especially if you have multiple items?

    If they want a good idea, they should follow Gemporia: One flat fee all day. So when I order at Gemporia, I tend to order lots of items.

    But you can bet I don’t at HSN or QVC unless there’s free shipping on an item. I can’t rack up 20 bucks in shipping and feel good about it.

    Exactly! Right?!!! What are we supposed to do on Fashion Clearance days when ladies pick up a bunch of stuff? Possible shipping costs now –

    • 4 fashion items x $3 shipping = $12 shipping!
    • 6 fashion items x $3 shipping each = $18 shipping!!
    • 10 fashion items x $3 shipping each = $30 shipping!!!

    Shipping should NOT be a way to supplement shopping channels’ profits. That should be built into their product’s sell price.

    :starwars: :numchucks:   :nono1:   :nono2:   :really:   :furious:

    Big YES to Gemporia’s $4.95 flat rate – it encourages larger orders without profiting from customers via shipping cost – and they’re mailing to us from the UK!
