WEST CHESTER, Pa. /PRNewswire/ — Qurate Retail Group, a world leader in video commerce (“vCommerce”), which includes video-driven shopping across linear TV, ecommerce sites, digital streaming and social platforms, today announced the launch of QVC and HSN linear channels on Amazon Freevee. QVC and HSN are the first and only livestream shopping channels on the service. In addition to QVC and HSN, Qurate Retail Group will be launching The Big Dish, its first FAST Channel. QVC and HSN are part of Qurate Retail, Inc. (NASDAQ: QRTEA, QRTEB, QRTEP).

QVC and HSN will offer Freevee customers approximately 40 hours a day of live vCommerce programming across both channels, featuring premier brands and fresh new products presented by celebrities, influencers and other interesting personalities.

Additionally, Qurate Retail Group is bringing its first FAST channel, The Big Dish, to Freevee. The Big Dish currently features a fun mix of pre-recorded culinary programming from QVC and QVC2. This summer, The Big Dish will expand to also feature HSN culinary content and original culinary shows from the QVC+ and HSN+ streaming app. While QVC’s and HSN’s linear channels already exist on multiple FAST services, The Big Dish is Qurate Retail’s first foray into an ad-supported channel with a narrow focus on a specific interest area, which is the most popular channel format on FAST.

7 Ways to Reduce Energy Bills During Summer Heat

The summer is when we see homeowners strategizing about how to keep their homes cool and comfortable while sticking to their household budgets,

Published

The summer is when we see homeowners strategizing about how to keep their homes cool and comfortable while sticking to their household budgets,

 (Family Features) With temperatures forecasted to run at least 2 degrees higher than historical averages across more than half the country, according to projections from AccuWeather, heat waves may lead to soaring air-conditioning bills this summer.

“The summer is when we see homeowners strategizing about how to keep their homes cool and comfortable while sticking to their household budgets,” said Michael Williford, HVAC service manager at Hiller Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical. “We work with customers to keep their current HVAC systems running smoothly or upgrade to more efficient systems, which can make a huge difference in their utility bills. In addition, there are many other ways homeowners can keep their energy costs down during the hot summer months.”

Consider these smart, practical, cost-cutting tips for dialing down your energy bills.

Service HVAC Systems Regularly
To ensure the best cooling performance and efficiency possible, find a licensed contractor to keep your heating and cooling system well-maintained and serviced throughout the year. There are some tasks many homeowners can handle on their own, like keeping outdoor units free of debris and changing air filters. However, bringing in a professional 1-2 times a year for maintenance and to ensure proper function of ductwork and electrical components is also essential.

Use Appliances During Non-Peak Hours
Rather than using stoves, ovens and clothing dryers in the afternoon hours, consider doing so early in the morning or late in the evening. Peak time for many electricity providers is noon-6 p.m., meaning using appliances that heat up your home outside of this timeframe when conventional heating and cooling systems are likely running full throttle can help lower energy costs.

Upgrade Your Systems to an Energy-Saving Heat Pump
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) incentivizes homeowners who opt for energy-efficient HVAC upgrades, including qualified heat pumps, which can boost seasonal energy efficiency ratios and increase efficiencies. For example, Mitsubishi Electric heat pumps provide more energy-efficient cooling that may equal cost and energy savings as well as a reduced carbon footprint for homeowners. These systems are equipped with inverter or variable-speed technology that allows systems to automatically ramp up or down the required amount of energy depending on the room’s capacity. Although annual savings vary, some homeowners can save as much as $1,000 per year by switching to an all-electric heat pump.

Fire Up the Grill
When temperatures soar, use the grill for cooking to help lower energy usage and save on air-conditioning costs. Alternatively, toaster ovens, air fryers and slow cookers use less energy than larger conventional stoves or ovens. Get creative by cooking a pizza in a chiminea or smoking favorite meats as alternatives to using your oven.

Stop Cooling Empty Rooms
One mistake many homeowners make is forgetting to adjust their temperature settings when leaving the house. Whether you’re headed to the beach for the weekend or just headed to work for the day, blasting the air conditioner in an empty house can result in unnecessarily high utility bills. Multi-zone, all-electric heat pumps like those from Mitsubishi Electric allow homeowners to set the comfort level and adjust the temperature in each room, so you don’t have to waste energy cooling unoccupied rooms. With a smartphone app, you can even adjust the settings remotely.

Install a Smart Electric Panel
Installing a smart electrical panel alongside an all-electric heat pump enables homeowners to monitor and control energy consumption on-site or remotely using a smartphone for better overall efficiency and utility cost savings.

Harness the Sun’s Energy with Solar Panels
According to the Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, the amount of sunlight that strikes the Earth’s surface in 90 minutes could power the world’s total energy usage for a full year. Investing in solar panels can help decrease energy bills and increase your home’s sustainability. Additionally, some utility providers and government entities, including the IRA, offer incentives to help reduce installation costs. Plus, solar-sourced power pairs well with all-climate heat pumps, which require minimal electricity to operate.

Unlock Your $15 Power Voucher: Victoria’s Secret, Pink, and Bath & Body Works Shoppers

“Attention Victoria’s Secret, Pink, and Bath & Body Works shoppers! Claim your $15 settlement voucher now! Limited time offer for eligible purchases.”

Published

on

Customer holding a voucher at a store


Attention all Victoria’s Secret, Pink, and Bath & Body Works shoppers! We have some interesting news to share with you. If you made a purchase at any of these stores between May 10, 2021, and August 8, 2021, you may be eligible to receive a voucher for up to $15 off a single purchase at a future visit to any of these stores. How amazing is that?

Lynch Carpenter, LLP, a renowned law firm, has announced a proposed settlement with Bath & Body Works, LLC, and Victoria’s Secret Stores, LLC, regarding potential violations of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act during the relevant time period. While the defendants deny any wrongdoing, a settlement has been reached to provide relief for the affected customers and avoid the costs of a trial.

To be eligible for the settlement, you must have made a purchase at either Victoria’s Secret, Pink, or Bath & Body Works stores during the specified time period and received a printed receipt at the point of sale that displayed more than the last five digits of your credit or debit card number. If you paid with cash or a gift card, did not receive a receipt, received only an e-mailed receipt, or made an online purchase, unfortunately, you are not included in the settlement class.

The good news is that if you are indeed a settlement class member, you could receive a voucher worth up to $15 if you submit a valid claim form. And even if you made a purchase using My Bath & Body Works Rewards or a Victoria’s Secret branded credit or debit card and don’t submit a claim form, you will still receive a claimable voucher worth up to $5 automatically. More details about the vouchers can be found at www.FACTAClassActionSettlement.com. Just remember, the deadline to submit claim forms is July 16, 2024.

If you used your My Bath & Body Works Rewards Account or a Victoria’s Secret branded credit or debit card and take no action, you will receive a voucher as described above if the court approves the settlement. However, if you don’t file a valid claim form, you won’t receive a voucher. Keep in mind that by doing nothing, you waive your right to object to the settlement or participate in any other lawsuit against the defendants related to this case. But don’t worry, you still have options. You can choose to exclude yourself from the settlement or file an objection by July 1, 2024. The choice is yours.

Now, mark your calendars because the court will hold a Final Approval Hearing on October 24, 2024, to consider the approval of the settlement, as well as other important requests. This includes a request for attorneys’ fees up to $3,000,000 and $5,000 service awards to each of the named plaintiffs. If you have any objections, the court will take them into account during this hearing.

For more information about this exciting opportunity, visit www.FACTAClassActionSettlement.com, or if you have any questions, feel free to call 1-877-509-0275. Explore the website to get all the details you need, and don’t miss out on this chance to receive a voucher for your future shopping spree at Victoria’s Secret, Pink, or Bath & Body Works!
