Marie Osmond let me down

United States
January 8, 2016 7:18am CST
On January 1st I watched QVC and Marie Osmond was demonstrating her 'BodyGym Deluxe Portable Resistance Band Home Gym'. I wrote about it the next day and told everyone that I ordered it and couldn't wait to get started making good changes. @gr8nanna6 ordered one after reading my post. I received a email from QVC entitled, "Order Delay"...hum I knew that wasn't going to be good news and it wasn't. Basically it said: ...this item is not available for immediate shipment. We're truly sorry that we're unable to ship your order as promised. If we're unable to get additional quantities of this item, you'll be notified of your order cancellation with our regrets. It went on to say I can cancel the order... I received that email on the 6th. I decided that I would give it 14 days and if I don't hear from QVC regarding this I will cancel the order. I understand that Walmart is selling something similar so I'll check it out to be on the safe side. You get your head and your mind set on something and then the roof falls in...darn. I hope I can hold onto my motivation to make changes. Marie Osmond and QVC - you let me (and others) down!

You wonder why they make a show about it to sell it and they don't even have the items in.

They sold like 200,000 thousand of them - you would'assume' once they reached the total amount they had in stock they wouldn't let any one else place an order.

@AbbyGreenhill I think they oversold that item with the hopes of being able to still fill the orders

oh no, that does stink. I am the same way, I get stuck on something and nothing else does it for me. I hope the one at Wal Mart will work for you.

I looked at it briefly the other day but I better look at the Walmart site closer.

@AbbyGreenhill Surely they will get them back in stock on her site and you can get the real thing

@mom210 I am pretty sure the only place she sells them is on QVC - I've searched and that's all I can find.

That's rather frustrating, let's hope it's worth waiting for if it does eventually come.

You must be so disappointed as I remember you said you were excited to get this item. Hopefully QVC will be able to fulfill your order and you can get on with your exercise

They have 10 or so more days to make me happy, if not, I get something else.

@AbbyGreenhill I know you were. I would have been too. I would recommend waiting for that one though, instead of getting the knock off at Wal Mart. You know, you get what you pay for.

I wonder if they didn't for see how many people would order this item and didn't have enough because of that. Hope they get it to you.

Maybe it will be there by your chosen date! Things like that can be so disappointing. They must have had a huge response to that item.

The last count I saw was 200,000 - that's a huge amount.

On popular items QVC often oversell items in hopes of restocking fast but most of the time they let you know that they are taking back orders to be ship at a certain time

This was a whole new thing with them. It will be interesting to see what happens.

You are the one that said WM had them and I looked online and if Marie's fall thru then I'll get them at WM.

Don't feel bad. I order my son one of those exerciser were you can hang upside down. None of the bolts fit right and there were many problems with it. They refused to refund my money so I filed a report with the BBB

I don't know, they have been in business for 20-25 years so I don't think it was something done on purpose.
