Hi Ladies,
Haven't posted in at least 10 days or so...I have not been buying any jewelry at all lately, but did win a pretty patent leather Coach bag on EBay. It is too bad you guys are not getting good coupons. KTV must not be doing as well as they were, it they aren't being at all generous any more. Nothing new at all. I gave my daugher in law one of my diamond rings for her birthday. I had a halo diamond designed ring that she loved, and I have so much, so I gave it to her. I think it is sad to wait till you die to give things away. I was happy to see how happy she was. Anyway, gonna go watch some tv, or read a little Poe. Haven't read him in awhile...

Ladies, the daily coupon that only lasts until 3PM (about 45 minutes from now) is $20 off $100 ORDER and it works on clearance. Several items can add up to the $100 if you want. I bought CPO001R from clearance.

Did any of you get to do a purchase during the lunchtime special at KTV?

I was at a movie. :). You got a great deal on that bracelet. It feels like we to pull teeth and scrounge through the weeds with JTV lately, but you managed to out fox them. :-)

Bella, I couldn't pass on that bracelet with all that carat weight for about $100. It will go nicely with that Chuck black diamond heart in rose gold I recently bought.

What movie was it today?

Yea... That was a good deal in the bracelet. You did good.:)

It feels like to get a good deal at the time during the day that is convenient for us is like squeezing blood from a stone with JTV lately. All these stretch pays and markdowns that end with each show are giving me whiplash. They are trying to use these "for this show only" stretch pays to force customers to watch their TV. You have to watch the shows live. The web shoppers are getting ripped off as most of the good coupons were web only.

Bella, that movie looks good, as does the Oz one.

I don't like that there is a discount only once a day at 11AM, either. Also, you don't know what it will be. I forgot all about it yesterday, but Misty mentioned it several times during her diamond show. So, I looked to see what it was. I tried it on clearance, assuming it wouldn't work, but it did. So, I tried to find something not too far above the $100 to make the $20 go further. If only they could do the 15% off or 20% off the whole cart for 4 hours. I am sure I could find something nice.

The 11am thug is stupid. What about people at work. They neither have the time or desire to watch JTV all day to catch the on again off again stretch pays or dinky $10 off joke. They would lithely be fired for watching JTV at work. JTV seems to have had a brain fart that many of their customers work during the day. JTV's cutesy little discount schemes just get dumber and dumber.

I just watched the diamond show with Nikki from last night. She spent a third of the entire show... 20 minutes at a stretch aggressively pushing that piece of crap $99 dollar necklace. I am so SICK of seeing them go on an on about that frozen spit dog collar.

That darn 11 to 3 deal is not even on JTV today. That is really idioitic of them thinking this will take the place of a 20% coupon. Just another stupid approach of them of try and "pacify" us with such silly deals. Ross Simmons has better deals than JTV and it is "always" a good coupon to use there unlike JTV!

I noticed that there is no coupon on KTV for lunch today, also. Maybe some of our posts on their facebook pages are making an impact.

I have a hard time understanding pushing the cheap $99 and less junk to recruit new customers instead of keeping us long-timers happy. We buy more expensive stuff. Also, once the new customers see the bad quality diamond accents in those illusion pieces, they will probably NOT return to be customers again in the future.

Someone in marketing needs a lesson in maintaining customers that made KTV the powerhouse they have become in online shopping.

Yea... They seem particularly obtuse about realizing we want to choose what we apply the discount to. All retail businesses offer coupons with the customers choice what to use them for. And they are not for a measly $10. The usual amount is 20% or more.

They seem to be on some sugar high with this flex payment crap. Even at that they refuse to offer it for high end items. I think entail this flex pay does not sell enough of the crappy stuff, we long terms customers are up a creek without a paddle. I think Christmas was a dry run for them and they are under the delusion that it will translate to non holiday sales. About the only thing that is still going great gangbusters is the Moissanite Fire.

There are more pre--- up. Nice diamonds. Too much for me right now. Some are ALW items that were nice last summer. I have one of the ones on pre --- right now. If there was a 15% off or more that worked on pre own, I would be trying some more diamonds.

I am worn out. Looked at a DVR of Nikki's show and the blue diamond ring with baguettes is so pretty. I returned the one I had. Not buying now.

I went for a physical today and my blood pressure was only 100/80. Seems low to me. I am fine but at an all time high weight. The doctor said, "You'll get it off." Well, off to bed.

We had a scare today. Hubby had light flashes and floaters in his eye. He called my retina specialist and they saw him right away as that can mean a detached retina. Turns out it is the fluid in the eye changing as we get older. Changes from a Floyd to more of a gel and can gap to the retina. Gaps are OK. You do not want it to stick the the retina and detach it though. He goes back again in 30 days though to keep a close watch on it. So it has been a very stressful day.

Yikes, Bella! I am glad it wasn't a detached retina. My hubby is having problems with one of his eyes, too. He was told he has "thin" retinas, and he has to be careful. I wonder if one is coming detached now. He needs to see someone. He is just tooooo darn busy. He never gets time to do anything during the week, so it's hard to get there on the weekends. A lot of places are closed.

He's in NC today. All of the sudden, he will have to travel a lot more. He mentioned maybe China! That's soo far away from home. I would miss him terribly. He got a "promotion" at work last week, but it just means more work and responsibility for no more money. As it was, the yearly raise was eaten up by the government tax increase. It's horrible to have so much on your shoulders and not be compensated for it. I hope someone there appreciates him and gives him a raise for him supervising 2 departments and 8 more people. Plus, he will be traveling A LOT to see suppliers all over the world.

If they cannot compensate your husband's hard work and responsibility with more money, I hope his mangers are appreciative and supportive of his efforts. And...yikes ... China... That is a long ways off. I hope he can relax a bit on weekends.

Bella, so GLAD that it wasn't a detached retina!! I have had floaters since I was 12 or 13, they are such a pain but I have gotten used to them, although, sometimes I still swat at "nats".:)

Mrspeacock, sounds like your hubby recieved a promotion that I'm not sure I would want, it wouldn't be so bad if he actually saw the increase in his salary. Will you ever be able to travel with him? I would hate to go to someplace like China by myself, but I know that it would be a beautiful place to visit.
