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......

You gave it less then a month? Not too bright.

Any advertising takes time to show results, anyone knows that. cancelling charges or reversing charges on a written contract is a breach of contract by you. Expect to be challenged in court on the breached contract.

Again, another deadbeat contractor unwilling to honor a contract or pay his bills. Real shocker there huh?

Angies List in Westminster, Colorado - Angie's list promotes defamation, lies

A client of mine published a bunch of lies as a review of my buisness(easily provable lies), I told Angies list they said too bad ,don't change THEIR MEMBERS lies. My attorny sent my client a letter staTing this was defamation, client took off lies, Angies list found out about possible lawsuit, angies list responce was to take my buisness off angies list and black ist me from being on ANGIES LIST. THEY PROMOTE DEFAMATION. Many contractors i found out don't deal with Angies list members for fear of being blackmailed to do EXTRA WORK OR GET A BAD REVIEW.

I work an Angie's list dentist. And he's probably the WORST practitioner I know.

So yea.

I don't trust Angie's list anymore. I can't get out of this office fast enough.

Thats Exactly right......the customers are under this impression that you WILL do more work then expected or else. Or ELSE!....or else the will post untrue complaints against your business. Mt first customer off angies did exactly that and i finished the job without payment. I have since filed a lien on the home owners property...which...she still thinks i cant do.

Angies list is a dangerous spot for your growing business. THEY WILL NOT DELETE FALSE LIES. although you can get them to cancel the account entirely.

Also

The last thing your business needs is to have your thankless customers doing your advertising for you. DO NOT GIVE THEM PERMISSION TO USE YOUR BUSINESS NAME.

I called several times and they told me or typed via chat that they are not stopping the ads on RUSH Limbaugh's show. They said they want to do whatever they can to reach as many potential customers.

Whatever happened to professional responsibility? That doesn't enter into their decision.

I'M GOING TO CANCEL BUT I AM GOING TO DELETE THE REVIEWS FIRST BECAUSE THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE OWNERSHIP OF THEM AND USE THEM TO PROFIT EVEN FURTHER.

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

I signed up for membership on a promotional. I did hire a general home remodeling contractor who I was quite pleased with his work.

What I didn't like about Angies List is the constraint they put on you of where you can look. I had a business soliciting carpet cleaning in my area. Their home base was not in my area, therefore, I could not read the comments without paying another fee to add another location to my account. However, if I spend time and call Angies List, they would verbally give me the reviews.

I did not renew my subscription. There are way too many other "free" internet searches that can give the same result.

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!

EVERYBODY ON ANGIE'S LIST SHOULD DO THIS:

CALL ANGIE'S LIST (866-623-6088) AND HAVE THEM CHANGE YOUR RENEWAL FROM EMAIL TO POSTAL MAIL. Unlike email renewal, if you are on postal mail renewal, then subscription renewal IS NOT AUTOMATIC!!!

After reading MANY negative reviews of Angie's List, I called them and asked if there was any way to stop the auto-renewal of my subscription. Although I could not find it posted anywhere on their website, YOU CAN STOP AUTO-RENEWAL OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION! Call and have your renewal switched from email to postal mail. Email notification is automatically renewed with an opt-out option. POSTAL MAIL RENEWAL IS AN OPT-IN OPTION. This means that you have to ask them to resubscribe, and they cannot automatically renew your subscription.

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!!!!
