Description:

With the price of gas going up, making mall trips to stores is not only a hassle but now expensive. TV Network shopping made it easy and convenient to shop from home before ecommerce had a real start.

Now, several TV Retailers have huge websites as well.

Which TV Shopping Network do you prefer?

I order from both but by far prefer HSN. HSN offers MUCH better shipping rates and so many more more specials with FREE SHIPPING. HSN also offer better flex pays than QVC. QVC rarely offers FREE SHIPPING. Both have excellent customer service though.
Qvc better than hsn never have what you need all ways out every thing lol
Love QVC. Organized, an efficiant , well run business. They take good care of their customers. HSN sells junk, artificially enhanced stones, tried to return and they refunded me. I couldnt find a match to my other things. ALSO..i bought :-$ 1500. Worth and they did a BAIT AND SWITCH ON A BLACK JACKET.....I.DIDNT ORDER. They cant even keep invantory straight......Stupid butt heads.i wont shop with them again.....PATHETIC
You guys are nuts QVC is crap te cameramen are total ametuers and half the time you can barely hear what they are saying on screen. Course I've never bought from either I have amazon but HSN is way more entertaining to watch sometimes I watch it other shows I enjoy just because the product is interesting and sometimes they have other things besides salespeople on like concert an interviews
Most of HSN's products are overpriced & they don't reduce the prices very often. If you keep your eye on something you want, it might eventually go on clearance. Although most of the shoes are name branded, they are still extremely pricey! I perfer QVC & have been doing business with them for several years. They suit my style better in everything, clothing,electronics & beauty.
HSN has better products for the home and low prices , also has the best coin collecting show on TV.
I watch QVC every day. Sometimes I buy their products and sometimes I will have it on as I am cleaning or cooking. The hosts are always friendly, entertaining and fun. Some of my favorites are Lisa Robertson, Pat and Jayne in the mornings, Shawn Killinger and MaryBeth Rowe. Occasionally, I have ordered from HSN. Some of the hosts come off a little tacky and pushy. If I need to speak to a customer service representative, I find they are very abrupt and sometimes a little rude. QVC customer representatives have always been very pleasant, very professional and very helpful. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about HSN.

I think it really depends on your age, which you prefers. I personally like HSN, the vendors are appealing to a younger customer. Vendors like Queen Latifa, Serina Williams, Steve Madden, Vince Camuto, DKNY, Poetic Licence , Iman, Loreal, Bar + Bar, Joan Boyce, Mark Buaer, Serina Williams, the they appeal to a younger customer but not teenager young. QVC has Joan Rivers, Denis Basco, Doney & Burke etc just a more mature customer. I love Issac on QVC though. Just in my opinion.
Maybe I'm just more used to QVC but I feel its better. Someone who used my address with HSN, didn't pay their bill, and though we had separate accounts (and mine was in good standing), HSN wouldn't deliver to me because "the shipment would be sent to a delinquent address". Bummer. :( So the person who used my address, is STILL overseas (in the military) and won't be coming back any time soon. So, looks like I'll be using QVC for virtually ALL of my home shopping needs. :)
Hsn has much better products and much better prices and is far more interesting to watch. Hsn is cheaper too There is no comparison in my book hsn all the way
ShopNBC is my favorite channel as of New Year's. ShopNbc has fabulous clearance prices, (QVC's clearance prices stinks). And my favorite hosts from QVC are on ShopNBC now, Dave King and Steve Bryant doesShopNBC's cooking shows now. Love, love ShopNBC. QVC's fashions are for the old frumpy and I'm 58. HSN and ShopNBC's fashions make me feel alive and living at the ripe ole age of 58.
I buy from both but find: I prefer QVC's upscale, low pressure style HSN sells a lot of its own brands that disappear just when you need them. I bought a pressure washer from them and when a part broke, the company was long gone. Both channels suffer from one huge limitation: If you buy something that does not hold up, you're out of luck after 30 days. For larger purchases, particularly with parts, go to Costco.
I prefer QVC because they add the shipping and taxes in their flex pay, where HSN takes the shipping and the taxes from the first payment, but I shop from both. I shop from QVC MORE!
I am a woman and feel HSN is the best..HSN's electronics prices are so much better than QVC and QVC's shipping costs are expensive...they charge over 30.00 to ship a computer and HSN will charge only 12.95 for the same type of computer. Also Hsn has great clothing designers, Iman, Sharif, and Diane Gilman to name a few...HSN has better promotions as well.
Well if your a woman i guess qvc would be where you would choose too shop. But since i am a man definitly HSN. Hsn has a much much larger variety for men and there electronic selection qvc cant even compare too. HSN has all the new top of the line TV"s and Cell phones and GPS available qvc never has that stuff and for the price HSN has. Obviously QVC is more focused on selling womens products.
I would definitely choose to watch & buy from qvc. everything about them is more professional. customer service is so helpful & polite. to me I feel like hsn pushes in a very fake way. I can't even stand to hear some of hsn's hosts voices. they just seem like con men & women to me. I have bought from both (many, many items) & have had to return many items ( either came broken or soon fell apart), but my experience with qvc always satisfied me, but not with hsn. I also hear hsn host's lie through their teeth while I am reviewing the same item that they are talking about online & what they said & what the facts are, are totally different (ex - computers & laptop specs)
I love,love,love HSN. Not even close !!!

Easily more affordable and I love the Absolute jewelry!

HSN has all the great Sephora products, my fave.

HSN is cheaper, QVC is classier. With today's economy I need cheaper.

We should start thinking how to use earth 4 energy, not for destroying our eco-system. Not to mention about our ozone layer. I'm afraid of what could come in 30 years.. hope not the end of the world!:)

What does this have to do with QVC or HSN, neither of whom sell this product?

I rather buy from QVC

QVC definitely! Great service and products.

I told my kids that if they recognize my voice on QVC and I am calling the hostesses by name, come quickly, I need intervention. All of the comments were fun to read and I agree with almost all of them. Overall, their pricing is great! QVC works for me!

I discovered HSN before QVC, and I stuck with HSN because the items they offered were more in line with my needs/likes. I can tell you from experience that neither company sells whatever product comes along... it all comes down to the item's potential commercial appeal, as judged by a team of producers.

If you watch and listen long enough, the hosts of QVC will convince you of your need for SOMETHING new in your life, whether it be a new line of make-up, an updated cooking utensil, or the latest handbag. Great conversational copywriting .... a must for anyone learning the business. Kudos to QVC!

qvc offers great products and ships in a timely manner
the quality is alwys consistant.

I do have to laugh sometimes though, they will be peddeling some little gadget and the way they talk it up is comical, I mean sometimes a cheese grater is just a cheese grater, but to listen to them you would think you could rebuild your engine with it.
