We are a local professional remodeling company in town and was sought out by Angies List 2 years ago because it is no secret that we are the best in town. After 2 years of promising they can put us in front of a larger audience and higher ROI than our current marketing...

Angies List review in Platteville, Colorado: Angie's list screwed me too!

I never thought that a company had to "steal" your money. I in no way authorized a renewal for Angie's list. Too bad that they're such vultures to stay afloat. Paypal sent me a receipt for $13.06 saying automatic renewal and when I logged in somehow that amount grew to $27.20....WTF. I never saw anything about renewal just being stolen from you. What a crock. Thought people were generally "good", not so much I guess. Life lesson? Bad Company? Maybe they should be on their own list. Just bad practice for us hard-working red-blooded American's just trying to survive and not get screwed by bad people.....

I was thinking about joining Angie's List and actually started the enrollment process. Before completing the enrollment I actually read the terms and conditions.

Two items caused me to stop the process. One was the automatic enrollment provision. The other was a system of fines that could be imposed on users ranging from $1K to $10K. No thanks.

Angie's list does a good job of marketing but it pays to read the fine print. I will not do business with this company.

I don't think they are honest and dependable.

I had the same issue - never contacted they just renewed automatically. I never once found a contractor in our area or one that was worth using.

WHen I called to cancel they gave a whole sale pitch to try and keep me - I just kept saying no and I removed all payment info from the system so that can't mistakenly bill me again for this useless service. :(

Angies List review in Colorado Springs, Colorado: BIG DEAL, Bait and Switch SCAM! Quit Angie's List NOW!

My first dealing with Angie's List was to have a local contractor install a high-capacity bathroom exhaust fan. The specific model was mentioned in the ad. I did some research and discovered it was, in fact, a great fan. Problem: contractor showed up when spouse was home and installed a CHEAP alternate fan from home depot. When I called the contractor agreed to come back and replace with the one promised. They showed up with another cheap replacement. NOT the fan paid for. BIG PROBLEM. Angies List will not refund my money. I contracted with Angie's List. They say it's not their issue. In addition, the Angie's List recommended contractor removed my bathroom fan ducting from the roof vent, so now the fan exhausts directly into the attic...a clear violation of code.

Same here! Ever since I subscribed this, I got over 70 spammed mail in a single day!!!

This is absurb. Also, I used one vendor with stellar ratings, but turned out to be very subpar, and i ended up having to hire someone to do the fixing!

Angie's list is a hoax. They cold call out to people and ask if they have had any services performed at their home by contractors recently.

They then proceed to ask for their review... how is this verified??? It isn't. That can lead to numerous instances of false reporting to either SUPPORT or DAMAGE the reputation of any undeserving company.

Even worse, if a contractor is overwhelmed with damaging reviews on their POS site they can have it cleared off after making financial "compensation" to Angie.

This is not fair to people who use the site or contractors who are graded by it. Bring it down!!!!

Angies List review in Denver, Colorado: Renewal not authorized

We signed up last year to find a fence guy. We found several, a couple gave us estimates, some never called us back. As things happen, we did the fence this year instead of last year and used the one guy who gave us a decent estimate. We also used a good landscaper to clean out the back yard, so that the guy could do the fence. They both did very well. Our comments are actual, but there are too many contractors on the list who get F's for not responding. But, I could NOT find anything on their website as to HOW you actually cancel their service. So listen up, you have to contact them via the on-line chat to cancel it. They did not notify me ahead of time to verify that I wanted to renew it. Next year they will, so says customer service. I got a partial credit, and I was actually going back to the website to see if anything is there on a cancellation policy. It may be there somewhere, but as of this writing, I haven't found it. It has to be a violation of Better Business Bureau policy (and good business practice) to not publish your cancellation policy somewhere actually visible to customers. They count on the fact that one year from now, you will not remember that they will automatically charge your card (I did but couldn't find out how to cancel it) or what their actual policies are. Buyer beware!

Buyer Beware is correct!!!!!! Even if you are able, like I was, to contact them in time to cancel they don't do it.

My credit card was still charged $35.00 a month after I contacted them to cancel.

RUN from Angie's list as fast as you can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last year, I signed up for Angies list by phone. The gentleman asked if I wanted to do the automatic yearly draft. I told him no, because you can't control your account. I received a letter on May 1, 2013, from my bank for INF, I had no idea why. We don't have...

Angies List review in Grand Junction, Colorado: Angie's List is no better than other scam sites.

I signed up for Angie's List months ago to check it out. They had no listings within 50 miles of me, and when I entered my address I was told I lived in the smallest of 4 communities within our county. Then, I was inundated with emails. When I went to unsubscribe, the button mysteriously glitched everytime I moused over it. Upon seeking to cancel my account, I found out I had to call or email them. I emailed, requesting that my account be deleted. I was told that my account "would not be renewed" and that since their email lists are "prepopulated" (read: sold to third parties), I might continue to receive emails. I'm currently waiting to find out if my account is going to be canceled, or if it's going to remain "active" in their database for another 5 months so that they can get advertising dollars off of their number of users. Even when you don't have to pay for it, it's a scam.

Do not believe them. I don't know what method you used to pay them, but they will try to put the charge through.

You need to call the credit card company or your bank and talk to them. Get the person's name you talked to and then follow it up in an email or letter.

I used PayPal on my payment and they were very good.

They followed up with an email to me too.

Angies List review in Broomfield, Colorado: Cancellation

I too am having problems cancelling Angie's list. I filed a complaint with my bank and they reversed the charge but said if it came up again, it would go through. I am now in the process of filing a complaint with the BBB to put them on notice. The heating company that I contracted with because they had excellent reviews on Angie's list charged more than they quoted and turned out to a horrible company. Can someone tell me how in the heck I get this cancelled? What really irks me is I had signed up for a ONE month membership and never agreed to monthly.

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.

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 review in Boulder, Colorado: Angie's List Billing Practices

Angie's list did two things. First, they added two services, classic car and health, to my account even thought I didn't ask for them. Second, they raised my price from $7.50/mth in September 2011 to $8.76/mth in October 2011 to $10.94/mth in November 2011. That's almost 46% in two months, with ABSOLUTELY NO WARNING OR EMAIL ANNOUNCEMENT. When I called and asked if the price had been raised or if this was a mistake, she told me that "yes, your charge is fluctuating". I said, flat out, answer yes or no...did the the price get raised. She said no. I asked why were the charges higher, and she said "i'm not going to be bullied into giving you the answer you want". At that point I asked for a supervisor. Supervisor was better. She said yes, they raised the price, but she would credit my card for the difference and keep it at $7.50. I asked her about the two services I didn't order, and the explanation was that when I signed up they were included, but they are now "unbundled" and now charged extra. I asked her to cancel those, and the price further reduced to less than $6. Again, none of this was communicated in the emails I get daily from Angie's List. Very consumer-unfriendly billing practices, almost verging on the deceptive. Ironic to say the least.
