We did a remodel on our house last summer and I joined Angie's List to find a designer and vendors.The folks they referred were unresponsive and turned up their nose at our 60k + project. The one company that did respond was terrible. At another site, I found out why....

Im sure many people overlook this and are surprised to see the charge from Angies List on their bank account. Did they lie technically ..No. But did they make their auto review service as transparent or customer friendly as possible? No definately not. After seeing...

Anytime I sign up for any type of membership like this or "offer" on the internet I use a pre-paid card. I use the same card a couple of times until the pre-paid $100 or so is gone, then I don't fund it anymore and I get a new one. Once the initial deposit on these cards is gone, they can't charge them, and they have to cntact you for a new card # in order to renew.

Poor customer service
We signed up for Angie's list as we are in a new area.Through Angie's List we purchased a coupon for home maintenance service. The company itself is great - the technician arrived on time and within 15 minutes of assessing our needs told us his company does not do this...

Angies List in Amarillo, Texas - The service is worthless in my community

Angie's List (AL) does not offer a trial membership or I would have never joined. I was looking for some household help in a community of over 200,000. I joined AL and it lists exactly one (1), that is right, one (1) reviewed maid service. Had AL let me know how many maid service reviews it had in my area, I would have never wasted my money. And, now after reading reviews on this site I have to worry that AL will scam me by auto renewal. It is always a beating dealing with folks that are all about the profit.

Angies List in Coppell, Texas - Angie's List is shooting themselves in the foot.

As an Angie's List service provider since 2006, I am watching what started as a great thing go to waste. Angie's List is constantly trying to get it's companies to sell cheap services, like a Big Deal coupon. For example, get 3 rooms of carpets cleaned for $99. These are start up companies that work for cheap with inexperienced employees. Do you think a low paid worker knows how to do top notch work? My company is the best in this business, however we are not getting calls because of all these cheap offers. I will be done with Angie's List in the direction it is going. Unfortunately, their customers will be getting mediocre work for their membership. It is sad knowing that Angie's List was bringing the best to their customers, and now they are selling out trying to keep their stock prices up.

Angies List in Houston, Texas - Advertises for a Company that has no License!

I looked up the manufacturer of my gas grill. "Solaire" Put in my zip code and called the company on there list of approved dealers. Had someone from Gas Grill and Light in Houston come to give me a bid for repair and cleaning. Gave him a $800.00 check for parts and then he quit answering my phone calls etc! I noticed when googling and researching that he was also recommended on Angies List. I emailed them and explained that after further research Gas Grill and Light had not paid there taxes and didn't even have a valid business license! I had been ripped off and they had no plans of bringing my parts! Angies list said that even knowing this information they could not make a report on this company file! They said you have to be a member to change someones rating....did I want to join? I laughed and said why would I pay for a membership that is promoting a company that has ripped me off and they know it but will still give them a good report???? How crazy would that be? Long story short we approached the Distributor and said that they need to take some ownership in who they list as AUTHORIZED dealers! They must have put the screws to the guy because after 2 MONTHs and many emails he brought our parts!!!! Gas GRILL and Light 1760 BLALOCK RD HOUSTON TEXAS 77080!!! Don't give them money in advance......or consider it a DONATION! ANGIE'S LIST - WASTE OF TIME!!! They still have them down as a good company they refer???? Know they aren't!

Angies List in Dallas, Texas - Angie's List is a Farce!

Even here they list that there is only one price for full access to their listings. But, they lie. After paying the $50+ for a year membership, and then try to find a dentist, they tell you that's another list and you must pay another $50.00. They had it discounted to $25.00, but when I signed up, that was supposed to be all I paid to use the full listings of the service. There are muiltiple lists and each carries a price. They don't tell you this until AFTER you sign up. How deceptive. This is not how to start a business relation with someone, by lying up front. Further, after I joined, the phone calls started from Angie's List asking me to give more reports. I was hounded with calls and finally cancelled the service. I'm not paying $25 just to find a dentist after I paid $50 already for what I was told was complete access. I should have told them to pay me for my reports. They use false advertising and every other deceptive trade and then USE their customers. You are a commodity, not a customer.

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!!!!

How annoying! What a waste of your time and your clients time.

Just use Seva Call like i do. ITs free and a really great site. They only use qualified companies and connect you to customers within minutes.

Their leads are in real time so when someone needs help they can find you immediately. Try them out at sevacall.com

The big deal works like this: you get an email from Angie's List with a discounted service (tree trimming, carpet cleaning, .etc). If you like the offer, you sign up for the coupon and the price (discounted) is paid for with your credit card (on file as you have to...

From the business side - The Big Deal

For ex the regular price is $100.00, Angie's want you to offer it at a discount say $80. The owner gets 40% of the $80.

Angie's list keeps 60%

A job that would be $100.00 we are now only making $48.00

As a small business it is not cost effective to do these big deals.

We don't try to sell you more stuff when we get there. If it's too good to be true......
