I hate April 15th. There is just nothing good about it. So when QVC offered a beacon of hope ... a small island of free shipping goodness in the unforgiving, tumultuous sea of income taxes ... I was ecstatic!
I hate paying for shipping. I hate that home shopping channels view shipping as another way to make a quick buck than as an unfortunate cost of doing business. I hate that they can't get it through their thick skulls that they are now competing with companies like Amazon, which offers Free Super Saver Shipping on ton of their most popular products every single day.
So you can imagine my disappointment when I headed over to the Q's website this morning only to discover that almost all the products getting the free shipping special treatment are excess inventory products that they are trying to unload. Very disappointing.
ETA: I just read through my post and realized that it sounds very negative. I use the word "hate" a lot, which isn't a word I generally like to throw around. Apparently, taxes really put me in a foul mood. Perhaps I need to relax with a glass of wine and a funny movie tonight!
