I recently joined Angies List as home services were projected and want to have reliable recommendations. There is no accountability on this site and offers border on scams. Not impressed. I purchased pre-paid service and "coupon" indicated 24 hour response from...

Angies List in Portland, Oregon - Difficulties with Angie's List Subscription Kills Its Value

I did not get value from Angie's List (AL). I seldom used it, and when I did once, a service provider did not give me the promised discount. I paid much more for it due to automatically recurring payments from my credit card. Cancelling was purposefully difficult. There was no button for it beside the FAQ link saying it was a type of contact. When I tried to write a cancellation message, I was automatically put through to a live chat saleswoman online who tried to keep me on. After twice requesting a cancellation of my subscription, I had to threaten to complain before she "allowed" me to stop being charged. I do not know whether AL unfairly profits from its recommendations as some believe. Assuming it's legitimate, I suggest staying on only when you need it and be prepared for a hassle when you cancel. Is the company a scam? Maybe not. But they sure weren't the value they hype themselves as.

Joined last night to find a dentist, only to find that after signing up for Angie's list, I still had to pay an additiional fee, just to find any medical information. That's why we joined in the first place.

Is there a fee for everything else, after one joins? That is when I stop. It doesn't take long to figure out that it is just a money grabbing scheme.

I signed up for a year, but will call tomorrow to cancel through my credit card company. Even if the charge is irrevocable, I wish to cancel after less tha a day.

This is a good old case of pure Texas Horse____!

I told her I felt this was very deceptive of Angies List's management. I believe this is a betrayal of my trust in their service. They send me all kinds of emails each week about their service but never sent me one about my upcoming $70 subscription! I am sure...

I think its infuriating that they make it so difficult to kill your "membership." Believe me, they want people to get charges unexpectedly bc many people do not check their CC statements. This is deliberate deception.

Thank you for warning people through this post!!
