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 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!!!!

Angies List in Pettus, Texas - Wasted my Time

2 Minutes to sign up on Angies List; 5 min to find it does not give you anymore info than already out there; 20 mins to cancel order. It may work for others but it is a pain to find out as you can not sample or review it before you buy it. It really makes no since that you can give them your money in seconds, but if you want it back well that is a different nature.. This information age is not working for the consumer because the business is still only interested in themselves. They do not offer us on-line tools for complaints or refunds as quick as they do to purchase.

Angies List Rip OFF - Zip Code Search

I live in southern california and i own properties (landloard) of some condos in Las Vegas. I needed a appliance repair company in Las Vegas. I signed up and paid the year subscription fee. At no time was there a disclousure that the only listings i was going to have access to was Los Angeles. When i wanted to get the las vegas listings it prompted me to pay another 20.00. what a ripoff. there is no disclousre that your stuck with the location you signed up as your primary address. I would be down to be a plaintiff in a class action lawsuit.

Hi,I'm an investigative reporter - I am currently writing a piece on Angies-List. On a public forum, I do not want to go into further details, but if you could contact me that would be great.

I would be happy to pass over to you the information I have collected from other people who have been seriously mistreated.

Please email: ken101clarke@gmail.com. All the best

Angies List in Chicago, Illinois - It felt like I was talking to a used car salesman!!

My experience was the same as buying my first car. Angie's List was speaking to me as if I was an *** even though I was asking questions. Its amazing this company has a way for us (consumers) to throw companies under the bus but no one to express our frustration in regards to them. How convenient.. When I asked to speak to his boss he ( the Angie's List sales guy) didn't want to give me the name or contact at first but finally did after 10 min of arguing and made it clear that his boss was going to feel the same way as him and that I'm wasting my time. Scam artist!! Stay away from Angie's List! Also fyi Angie's List takes money from companies to clear their names and make these companies look like angels.

I agree that Angie's list is awful. At the time we were not knowledgeable about the scam that Angie's list is.

We hired Butel Contruction who did an absolutley horrible remodeling job on our home.

Yet they pay Angie's list an enormous amount for advertising and get great "reviews." I noticed the bad reviews are BURIED on the website. You really have to dig to get to them.

I would not recommend Angie's list or Butel Construction to anyone!

Angies List in Los Angeles, California - Misrepresented the advertizing service. deifite rip off

it is to many details to write here, just know that they are unscrupulos and a definite ripoff company. they verbally promised that there service would generate lots of business (generated absolutely no business) and it didnt come close to other internet companys (at 1/3 the price) who you dont make you have to sign a 1 year contract with either. once in they have their claws into you and will not let go. i would NEVER use the service to advertize or to find a company, EVER. and i am currently taking them to small claims court for the shady practices
