Angies List review in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania: Angie's List Is Dishonest

Angie's List advertises that no business can pay to be on Angie's List. While technically correct, this is not totally true. A homeowner does need to report on a business so the business is included in the list, but the business needs to pay Angie's List a significant monthly advertising fee to push their listing upwards to where it will be seen by homeowners. Angie's List also attempts to convince advertisers to participate in the "big deal" where the contractor supplies a home repair/remodel service for less than 50% of its value. Want to take a guess on the quality of the work that's done at these discounts? This program is a real loser for both the contractor and homeowner. Sadly, the only winner here is Angie's List.

Oh no! A homeowner or "Angie's List Member" does NOT Have to put them on the list anymore! Companies can CALL Angie's List and get themselves listed!

And they want to charge the contractor 30% for this service on top of what they already pay.

Angies List review in Fort Lauderdale, Florida: Angie's List would not right their wrong

1.0
Details
Angie's list representatives acknowledged that they charged my account without my consent, however, since my bank account was already overdrawn by another issue that was not my fault, Angie's list refused to give me back my money that they acknowledged was withdrawn without my consent. Even after this acknowledgement, and my contacting them, they again withdrew money, however my bank, caught this (because of my request to monitor activity), they did refund this money. The above actions were taken, after I had already told a representative by phone when she contacted me to subscribe for another year that I WAS NOT interested in subscribing for another year. Even after me verbally telling the representative that I WAS NOT INTERESTED in another year's subscribtion (and the conversation being taped by Angie's List) they attempted to gain monies without my permission.

They will withdraw money from your account again next year. Change your bank account. Angie's List = dishonest company

Angies List review in Brandon, Florida: TOTAL SCAM

Angies list lied saying I would only have to pay for a month of advertising but continued to bill me. I called relentlessly and all I got from them was they were working on it. They said I would also be on the first page for advertisement which NEVER happened. Still have not received a refund. I had to close my account so they would stop billing me. SCAM!!!! DO NOT TRUST ANYTHING THESE PEOPLE SAY! ! !! ! ! ! ! ! !! !! ! !! ! !!! !! !! ! !! ! ! ! !! ! ! !! ! ! !! !! ! ! !! ! !! ! ! !!! !! !!! !! !!! !! ! ! ! ! ! ! !! !!!! !!! !!! !! !! !! !! !! ! !! ! ! !! !!

Angies List review in Exeter, New Hampshire: Close call

I almost signed up with them, but the coverage area was way to small to bother, every time I tried to explain the area wasn't worth paying them for leads when I wasn't interested in the area they cover, she just kept saying that she was confused and didn't understand, she was very pushy and acted like I was *** for not wanting to pay them. looks like I dodged a bullet because I found this after I told them no. I was under the impression that businesses couldn't pay to be on angies list but it seems to me like they wanted me to pay to be a preferred agent to be advertised to their customers and they wanted me to give a discount to their customers, I give the best price I can to all my customers, why would I pay to give a discount for my service? seems like a scam to me.

Angies List review: Review in Internet category from Lansdowne, Maryland

We received numerous phone calls and emails from A/List that we had received positive reviews and we could be moved to 1st page views for large advertising fees. We explained we couldn't afford it at this time. A customer who placed a review told us they had removed all of our reviews. So this site doesn't offer unbiased reviews to the consumers. Unethical and fraudulent practices. The same thing Yelp is being sued for. We are adding a special section on our website to let customers know we don't deal with Angie's list or Yelp due to their unethical practices and that you must pay for reviews.

Angie's list is the biggest scam around! Trying to resolve an issue with them is impossible because they have people working for them who act like robots, and just repeat company policy to you over and over again like a broken record. Anyone can go on their website...

Angies List review in Fairport, New York: I wanted to join to find a housekeeper

I need to have my house deep cleaned before I put it on the market to be sold. I thought I would go through Angie's List because I had always seen their commercials and thought it was a reputable company. I just spent my entire lunch trying to join and find a local reputable cleaning agency. The website kept bouncing me around and around so finally I called and spoke to a representative who was of even less help than the website. I wasted my entire lunch and got no where. Thanks Angie's List for nothing.
