Gone are the days where you require a net connection to shop. HomeShop18 has their own TV channel from which you can bag great deals sitting at the comfort of your home with just a phone call. The best part is, you can tune into the TV channel any time and need not wait for the programme to come on air.
Today I am going to share my experience in ordering goodies from the HomeShop18 TV channel. We might all be aware of the teleshopping ads that come between our TV programmes. They give awesome and cool stuffs on discount and all you need to do is call them up, order and sit back all at the comfort of your home. Homeshop18 has given a nice twist to the old teleshopping by their own TV channel. Yup.! If you have any of the following DTH, you can enjoy and experience the fun of seeing your favourite product on TV and ordering them.
They explain the product well along with couple of close up shots so that you can almost virtually experience the product before ordering them.
Couple of screenshots.
They have this Today’s special offer segment where they give out one cool product at an unimaginable discount. It is called the B.O.S.S (Bumper Offer Super Saver) which is undoubtedly the BOSS of deals. It is showcased for 1 hour everyday at 11 AM and at 12.45 PM.
Each day they bring 1 product that will be the BOSS of the Day- BOSS product/ BOSS deal/ BOSS OFFER of the Day! The Offer will be valid only for that Day. India’s best Deals VALID ONLY FOR 1 DAY (till the stocks last!)
The show intends to create a wave of excitement with BUMPER products at an unmatched offer and unbeatable savings. The deals have been made special and sweetened with free gifts/ prizes/ lowered price (BUT ONLY FOR A DAY). The offer will differ from product to product.
Sounds cool right??
Well, coing back to what I ordered, I ordered these two products.
1. Blush collection by Knex – INR 999/-
2. Pretty Women by Coloressence – INR 999/-
Blush collection by Knex is a jewelry combo set consisiting of 3 sets of gold plated chain with locket and a matching earring. The white stones are Austrian Diamonds and they look pretty classy and neat. Of late am getting attracted towards simple jewelry and this one fits the bill very well.
Pretty Women by Coloressence is a cosmetic set from the brand coloressence and consists of an eyeliner, Kohl, 2 lipsticks, one lip gloss, a makeup base, HD setting powder, blusher and a nail polish. I swatched them all immediately and found them to be very good. I got a Natures essence platinum and gold facial kit along with it.
Nice deal eh?
How to order:
- Watch the HomeShop18 TV and select your product.
- Note down the product code and dial the number appearing on screen.
- The call goes to a customer service center where the executive attends and asks your pin code, followed by the product code, address, phone no and email.
- Once the order is placed, you receive an sms and an email confirming the same and the approximate date of delivery.
- The date of delivery is later confirmed by email and sms and you can pay cash on delivery and collect the products at the comfort of your home.
Some key points worth mentioning about ordering via HomeShop18 TV:
- Product feature/description explained well by trained shopping guides and are pictured well on TV and the description is not misleading.
- The products shown in TV comes with great discounts and deals which are not available in their online site.
- The channel is a hindi channel. Even though they use lots of english words in between, if you do not understand even a single word of hindi it will be difficult. (You can check out the schedule here http://www.homeshop18.com/weekly-schedule.html)
- The customer care staff are very courteous and kind. They don’t sound rude at all. (Mr. Yusif attended my call and he is by far the most courteous and helpful person I have ever spoken to in a customer care call).
- The call centre supports only Hindi and English as of now.
- The product though ordered through a common call got delivered in different dates as they are from two dealers.
- The product comes well packed and they have this outer opaque polythene cover in which it is mentioned to NOT accept the product if the cover has been tampered/opened. I find this pretty cool because I have experience in receiving empty boxes. This will not happen here.
- Time taken for delivering the products is good. I ordered on Dec 13th and I received them on Dec 17th which is definitely not bad.
- On the day of delivery, you get an sms and an email informing that the product will be delivered on the day. It is very helpful.
- Though this channel comes in most of the top DTH, Tata Sky does not support this channel.
I hope you all had great fun in knowing about this tv channel. Do give it a try once and let me know how it is.
