Because Angie's List is struggling against new competition they want existing members to sign new agreements or you are blocked from using the site for the membership you have already purchased!
THIS SEEMS RIPE FOR A CLASS ACTION SUIT TO ME!
Additionally, Angie's List does not stand behind their Big Deals - vendors can offer anything they want and AL doesn't vet the deal. If you buy the deal they offer its up to you to fight with the vendor about the wording of the deal.
Lastly, the website is not very sophisticated; a while back I needed to change my address and I couldn't do it on the website so I had to call Customer Service to do it - waste of time and rinky ***.
They don't ask for tons of money for a membership, but it's the principle that they should be honorable about what they are offering.
