Angies List in Bothell, Washington - Angie's List is a SCAM

4.0
Details
Angie's List pretends to provide results but then demands MORE money if your search falls into specific categories. This is so *** greedy I don't know where to begin. They are intentionally altering your search in order to demand higher subscription costs. I build this stuff for a living I know what goes on under the hood. It takes MORE effort to do this than it does to provide ALL results. They have to actually spend time and money to provide less service! Angie's List has lost my business forever because I will not be snowed by yet ANOTHER greedy internet company that goes out of its way to limit their results just so they can price gouge. At lease Google is free and as good at providing reviews if not better. Tell Angie where she can stick your money.

Angies List in Detroit, Michigan - Bad Roofing Job Haggled With A Rated Roofing Company for 1 Year

4.0
Details
The roofing company has a front guy that gets the contract and then sends roofers. My roof leaked, the shingles are curled and the roof has sunken spots. I complained for a year and finally filed complaint with Angie's List and BBB. I posted pictures of the poor roof job at Yelp and YP.com and at Angie's List. They guy finally gave me a FULL REFUND in exchange for removing the postings and complaints. The BBB shows it as a resolved complaint; Angie's list deleted it completely. I will not renew membership because I spent a whole year haggling with this guy, the roof was a mess and he still gets to keep all A's at Angie's List as if he has perfect service. I let the AL agent know that Angie's list is not reliable if they just delete the complaint like the contractor requested, but they did not respond to my email. I am still a member, but once it expires, I will not renew as I no longer trust Angie's List. I am sure this is not how she wanted the company to end up when she started it. I cannot post the pictures or name the company because it is part of the agreement to get my refund of the full amount paid for my roof. I am hoping Angie sees this so that she can do what BBB does and show "problem resolved" instead of deleting the whole dispute as if it did not exist.

Nothing. I am satisfied with other referrals. I just want ANGIE to know a legitimate complaint w/pictures should never be deleted and wish her luck, but policy of deleting bad reviews cancels her promise of "reliable" reviews.

Angies List in Indianapolis, Indiana - Pricing Scam for Members

4.0
Details
Be Warned! If you are paying more then 30$ a year your paying too much! I have been a member for years paying 70$ each year. Now they have the same exact subscription for just 30$. Once I found this out I tried calling to adjust to this price, cause I don't really need to have this service, but if I'm keeping it I want the cheapest price. The call is what really made me angry. The rep didn't even offer the new prices until I started getting upset and basically told me that THEY WILL NOT OFFER IT TO YOU FIRST! YOU HAVE TO KNOW ABOUT IT!? What kind of scam are they running that existing customers have to know about the price changes in order to benefit but anyone new gets the cheaper offer? Talk about rewarding customer loyalty. I got all my money back, but this is what the rep ended up telling me... Local Home or just the Health list was 10$. They made sure to keep reinforcing that its "online only", but I wouldn't want to sit through another terrible phone conversation with them again. Both lists was only 30$ and was "nationwide" which just meant the extra $20 I was paying for another area was useless now too... You have to inform yourself or you will pay, literally.
