Qurio - a socially interesting documentary!

Is the spinning santa safe for little ones? As for the spinning aeroplane, the twin towers comes to mind! Like you say, a bit of festive fun x
Oh dear - not when you put it like that it isn’t! I’d imagine it’s safe for kids just so long as it doesn’t shear off and have someone’s eye out! I’d imagine that her cat will have the whole thing over sooner or later and she’ll be back on Q’s website looking for a dustpan and brush to clear up the aftermath - never mind the fact she could buy on in Tesco for a fiver , she’d miss paying the p&p!

And if it is fate?


Tempted to upload that to Qurio - Though I'm not quite ready to be thrown out yet, as it actually is a living reminder of how not to shop!

Reading that again I noticed that one of the tips were to put things into your basket and leave them for hours or days even to give you time to consider whether or not you really want that item. Good luck applying that to QVC purchases, since they only give you half an hour - hurry, hurry, hurry or you'll miss out. Good grief they're tricky b'stards!!!

Just reading that.Can see how it can be easy to sit at home watching QVC and ‘we are all in this together’ (not) approach to lockdown situations and thinking I would like that, click!If I put something in a basket, not QVC I can leave it for some time then I usually decide not to confirm,but as Merryone said Q give you 30 minutes, relying on the fact you may feel as if you are missing out, so buy.Of course they will say you can return but the cost can add up to nearing £10.I simply cannot believe some of these on Qurio they have high income jobs or have partners who do.It highlights just how much they buy by the number of times they post.If they use sights other than QVC, there’s a problem!

Having watched some of the “presentations” on Qurio, I’m amazed that people actually want to go on camera to “wax lyrical.” I certainly wouldn’t want to. It’s also clear, from their regular on-camera appearances, that some of them have a lot of/too much time on their hands, never mind the money that they’ve spent. There are even videos of box opening. I wonder if ripping open a blue non-biodegradable QVC plastic bag on camera would be as riveting. 😉

Hi Silver Fox,

The 30 minute basket limit annoys the heck out of me. It is pressurised selling, no excuses. Like Gemporia doing wheels and saying checkout in 1 minute because then the prices are going back up. I won't be pushed around anymore. I wouldn't go into M&S sale (or any other time) and have an assistant bully me into checking out in the next 5 minutes, or she / they will up the price! After all, these telly shops are still shops. I like to be treated with respect when I shop and I am sure we all do.

What I started to do a couple of years ago was, if I liked something but had any niggling doubts, I put it into my basket and did not return in the 30 minutes. The chances are that I actually forget about the item and a few days later if I log in to my account, they are still sitting underneath my basket, to still tempt me. I estimate that 9 times out of 10 I delete the item all together. Rarely, I might re-add it to the basket and checkout. Sometimes the item has now sold out but I can really, truthfully say that I have never given a damn, or felt I missed out on a great deal, just saved myself a few quid and a groaning house :) xx

Just tuned into Q for around 30 seconds and that was enough. Abby from Dyson was touting a red airwrap. Nothing wrong with that but she did go as far as to say that the red airwrap was perfect for this time of year, can't go wrong with a red one for Christmas. Horse manure! Scraping the barrel (of the airwrap perhaps :)Anyone see it or feel the same way? Off into work, see you all tomorrow xx

Horse manure indeed! That comment really made me laugh! Yep, she’s right - buy a red one for winter, a green one for spring, yellow for summer and the copper one for autumn ‘cause its dead important that the colour of your hairstyler goes with the season, right?!
Getting a bit worried about “spinning Santa “ lady , she’s not posted anything for a few hours- maybe she’s up A&E getting his whirly bits surgically removed! Hope the cat’s ok …… ok, and her!

Seen an unboxing of the Tili tsv (The one I thought looked quite good) Customer disappointed and not sure whether she should keep it or not. Tiny bit of damage to the carton it comes in - no great shakes, quite likes the shay and blue, is disappointed with the size of the lipstick though she likes the colour, doubts whether she'll use the eyeshadows 'cause she doesn't use much eyeshadow as they're rather glittery, so might "gift" if she decides to keep it, didn't seem to fussed about the shower gel but will "give it a go" and didn't say much about the candle. A typical example of someone who gets a big buzz out of ordering and then comes down with a bump when it actually arrives.
Despite the small amount of damage to the edge of the box, I thought it looked ok. I wouldn't have bought it myself as there was a couple of things in the box I know I'd never use/didn't need, which turns out to be the case for this lady. Do they not read the contents before ordering and check the sizes of the products? Obviously not. If I were her I'd keep it, and yes give the palette away as it does look like a decent standalone gift, wear the perfume, the lipstick, burn the candle and tell myself "That's it!"
She'll send it back at further cost to herself and then probably order something else to make up for the disappointment - Slippery slope!

I felt a tad guilty about having a real laugh about the lady with the little dog but it just struck a cord with me and if they put things out there and cannot see it for themselves, well?I know people have addictions at different levels and I say I was a bit worried in thinking I was moving towards alcoholism during lockdowns but as I know someone who has an alcoholic family member that was as silly thing to say or even think.Everyone has times in their life when they can dip into the path of what is considered not ‘normal’ but a some stage are pulled back.I have bought quite a bit from QVC in the past, money that could have been used in better ways but never, ever put me into debt thank goodness, it is easy to get there.The thing that surprises me with some of the Qurio posts that the is no question ‘could my money have been used to better effect’? In value and cost of just getting the b***** thing!
The opening of the boxes is a joke, who has the time and interest to watch that?
I am a reasonably comfortable pensioner but even when working full time would not have had the disposable income of the lady who is a serial poster, must have racked up over several £1000s now & £100s in postage alone.I hope the flying Santa will see the Christmas season although think the cat will put it out of its misery before then.

Don't feel guilty, firstly she isn't on this site, so can't read our comments, if she is, then she's keeping very quiet! The ones who should feel guilty are those who are encouraging her and more significantly the others who are literally throwing good money after bad, but primarily the a$$holes at QVC who set up this ridiculous app!
Seriously SF, if those people could read these comments, they may actually wake up and realise they've got a problem or are in serious danger of getting into deep trouble. Yes we're having a laugh at their expense, but not a big a laugh as Q are having!
 
Craig and his parcel opening videos has a lot to answer for.

Call me old fashioned but what is the point of showing how to open a parcel unless it is to demonstrate how badly something was packed or to show how to assemble something.

I’m well capable of taking a bottle of gloop out of a box without instruction.

It must be really scary for people who get hooked on buying stuff and end up in masses of debt. Ballerina was brave enough to tell us her tale which thankfully had a good ending but there must be many people out there who face eviction, bankruptcy, court, debt collectors, bailiffs etc.
Before I married Mr V I recall a local family in the next village to mine being devastated when their .son, also someone`s husband and Father of 2 young children went up an alley at the back of his house, poured a can of petrol over himself and set fire to himself. All because he was in masses of debt to payday loan companies, credit cards, loan sharks and anywhere ese he could borrow money from. His wife had no idea and she didn`t even know he`d re mortgaged their house and he was obviously hiding default letters from the bank as well as mail from loan companies and credit card companies.
His downfall was gambling but some way, some how, he`d managed to hide his addiction plus everything else until things had obviously got too much to bear and unknown to them, his family were about to be evicted. The press were all over it, his tragic tale was on the local news and sadly too late for the poor family all the people or agencies who could have helped him came on air to talk about addiction.
There must be some of Q`s avid supporters out there getting into debt deeper and deeper and fingers crossed that none of them ever contemplate taking their own life.

Don't forget Charlie and his slow reveal.
