Angies List in Dallas, Texas - Angie's List is a Farce!
Even here they list that there is only one price for full access to their listings. But, they lie. After paying the $50+ for a year membership, and then try to find a dentist, they tell you that's another list and you must pay another $50.00. They had it discounted to $25.00, but when I signed up, that was supposed to be all I paid to use the full listings of the service. There are muiltiple lists and each carries a price. They don't tell you this until AFTER you sign up. How deceptive. This is not how to start a business relation with someone, by lying up front. Further, after I joined, the phone calls started from Angie's List asking me to give more reports. I was hounded with calls and finally cancelled the service. I'm not paying $25 just to find a dentist after I paid $50 already for what I was told was complete access. I should have told them to pay me for my reports. They use false advertising and every other deceptive trade and then USE their customers. You are a commodity, not a customer.
Angies list is about collecting money for angie
angies list is only about collecting money for angie, some of the worst contractors out there are paying the fee to be on angies list, angie has no idea about the quality of work these companies perform. If in doubt about a company, have them guarantee all their work,and put that guarantee on paper. If your contractor wont guarantee their work--- DONT USE THEM... You dont have to give your hard earned money away, only to find out that the company you hired off of angies list is going to cost you more trouble, and money than you thought was possible, because angie takes any bodies money,not just the good, and honest contractors...
Angies List in Irvine, California - Angis list is a HORRIBLE COMPANY
They try to come across as one of the most trustworthy and honest. First of all it is not easy to find service providers close to where I live. I might get a lead but in the 40-50 Miles radius. I can do better than that. If you want to cancel the service the real pleasure will come to your way. No e-mail option for cancellation fax or phone only... After 25 minutes waiting on the phone I gave up and called my credit card company to get rid of their charge. By the way I have already canceled the service less than a month after I signed up for it.. Horrible...Waste of time......

Angies List in Clinton, Connecticut - Angie's List Not Friendly to Businesses
I was in the process of developing my business profile, when I asked the AL staff for assistance in deleting a review they deemed as "self promoting". They refused, I then asked them to completely remove my business listing, they refused, stating that there were several positive reviews there and we do not remove the reviews or listings no matter what. So my listing now states that "Angie's List has refused to remove my listing even though I the business owner have requested it to be removed..." I thought they needed us, the businesses owners, I guess not. Very unprofessional
We signed up as a business with an enhanced listing and were told we would get tons of leads - got none. We also put an ad in the monthly book and was told it was mailed to 100K members in the Chicago area - later found out it was mailed to only half as many. A...
i signed up for the "free" month. i forgot to cancel and, of course, got charged every month. when my husband saw it -- he called them to stop. in the meantime -- i guess i told them we owned a small business -- they bugged abosolute *** out of us to "join" the list. ...
Angies List in Minneapolis, Minnesota - $70 to renew??
Angie's List was offering annual subscriptions in my area this year for $16 -- and they want $70 from me!! Outrageous in my opinion. I have taken the time to submit many reports and even talked to their phone reps to submit a report. I haven't used the service all that much -- maybe once every two months or so to get recommendation, but in actuality I don't need service people to help me out every month. Once or twice a year at most for me. Your rates are too high Angie! I used to be loyal and last year's renewal was $30 but there is no way I would renew for $70!
Angies List in Plano, Texas - Angie's List is Not For Businesses, Either!
A Client posted a Report on Angie's List that was very pleasing. Angie's List then called me and gave me all 1000 reasons I needed to sign up myself--mainly to "Scout out the Competition"--I did. I created a Business Owner site as well. I handed out the "Reports" to be filled out by my Customers and dropped in the mail-free postage! WOW, not one mailed in report seem to get into the system--and I mailed one Clients' as walking out her door one day- for her! Next, I asked my Clients to review me online instead and I sent the link. "Where do I Review you"...sorry, the CORRECT word is REPORT-now can you find it??? 3 times in one week! Now I have reviews only I can see--not you, just me! Why?? Because they didn't buy a Membership!! Their opinion is not of VALUE if they are not a Member. Now.. is this suppose to help a business? By paying money does that mean the review (REPORT, sorry) is "Verifiable"? NO IT DOESN'T!! But this is what it says above those REPORTS: "This report wasn't submitted by an Angie's List member. It is unverified and won't show on Angie's List. Non-member reports don't factor in to current or overall grades" WOW! Huh? I might as well give all my Clients the money to REPORT me and then MAYBE Angie's List will be beneficial?? Let's see if that happens! If you are a Business, don't expect reviews--damnit...REPORTS!!!!
I am a Master Plumber with 38 years in the trade. I was contacted many times by AL to advertise on there site. After reviewing the matter I decided against it. There are to many red flags. The input from members are not scrutinized enough and there is to much room...
