St. Petersburg, Fl (PRWEB) October 4, 2005
When online shopping site, HSN.com, launches its first-ever ÂCustomer Appreciation DaysÂ today and tomorrow, millions of online shoppers will be able to save on thousands of top rated products. During the October 4-5 event, HSN customers shopping online will enjoy free shipping and handling on products identified as Customer Picks (products that average a 4 or 5 star rating on online reviews submitted by HSN.com customers).
Throughout the two-day event, HSN.com will highlight the many ways that customer suggestions have been implemented into the site to create a more enjoyable online shopping experience. These improvements range from customer reviews that allow customers to share opinions, gather product information, and ensure they donÂt miss out on great merchandise, to better product images, including the ability to zoom in on a product and change the color with the click of a mouse, to ÂWhen-to-WatchÂ e-mails that are customized for customers so theyÂll never miss their favorite HSN-TV shows.
ÂListening to our customer and responding to their needs has been a key element of HSN.comÂs phenomenal growth,Â states Rob Caiello, Operating Vice President of Online Marketing for hsn.com. ÂOffering free shipping and handling on HSNÂs highest-rated products is the perfect way for us to thank our customers for helping create one of the InternetÂs top online retail stores.Â
