Shopping that Merges the Old and the New- HSN Giveaway

Once upon a time, when I didn't HAVE internet access at home (EGADS< I know, the thought, huh?), amusement and great products could be found while watching HSN- that's the Home Shopping Network to you newbies!

I, and my mother, bought some excellent turquoise jewelry at reasonable prices, that have only gone up in value!

It was like reality TV and soap operas combined with Amazon. Seriously!
People LOVED the hosts and were serious tied into watching them!

Weel obviously we are all sitting at our computers more and more, and watching shopping on TV is just well, passe for a lot of people.

HSN figured this out and decided to update their website and make it a pleasant shopping experience, 
that can rival Amazon's at times!

Have you check out the new redesigned website?

I did and am very pleased with the changes they made!

Gone are the clunky links and buttons- everything is streamlined, attractive, and easy to find!
Brands and departments are right at the top and easy to click into.

You can sign up for alerts on your favorite items, see your recently viewed items (handy in case the computer crashes (as the little suckers are want to do now and then), see what is on TV on the channel, and even items that were recently aired- helpful if you were flipping channels and saw something you liked, but got on the website after it was off the air!

new hsn today's special pop up
Even the Today's Special is easy to locate! It pops up on the screen as soon as you enter the website-no more hunting for it- yeah! What is the Today's Special? It's a super extra special deal that has discounted pricing and usually quickly runs out by the afternoon. But no worry- HSN will find a new one to fill the leftover day! You can also find it on top of the screen as well, in case you want to go back to it while shopping!

Valentine's Day is coming up, so I went through the site and found some super buys- these are ALL under $40!
Aren't they gorgeous?

hsn home picks
 The Joyce Mangano huggable hangers 36pc closet resolution set in chrome, #6971363, is a set of hangers and accessories that Mom and Dad swear by! I can attest that your clothes will NOT fall off the hangers, and you won't have those funny pinched shoulder markers either!

Also from her line, the Joy Mangano Madison Avenue handbag with travel wallet, #6724181, is 
perfect for everyday use, in place of a bulky briefcase. It has enough room to carry a tablet or ipad, cell phone, wallet, and all the extras we ladies carry, and not loose any of it!

The Black and Decker Brew-n-go personal coffee maker, #2426272 is perfect for your morning cup of coffee, in the bedroom or bathroom, while getting ready.

And if you like to think outside the box, pun intended, the art bin store-in-drawer cabinet, #5884950, is perfect to organize your bracelets and large pieces of jewelry, even scarfs! Think about adding it to your closet area and freeing up your dresser top!
Did you know that HSN carries items from the Ballard Designs catalog?

Yup, they sure do. If I won the lottery, my entire house would be from that catalog, I love it SO much! 
But what is great about HSN is that they have the videos, from when items were on the air, so you can see the actual sizing of objects, and the true colors. Admit it, you've bought items for your home that were the wrong shade because the color swatch on the screen was wrong, or you didn't properly look at the dimensions, and the item is too small/too big for what you need. With the videos the guesswork is taken out! 
ballard designs wreath
Take this example of a Ballard Designs Christmas wreath.I looked at it and thought the bulbs were smaller and it would look undersized, then I looked at the video and realized it would be perfect for our over-sized front door! 

And did I mention they have flex-pay?

Yup you can buy and item and make 2 or more equal monthly payments, making more expensive items more affordable, like jewelry, cameras, tvs, phones, clothing and even kitchen items! 

So what do you think?

Have you changed your mind about the new HSN?
