NetSpend

NetSpend

Netspend has some positive features, they do have overdraft protection for anyone who has direct deposit and their online banking website is very user-friendly and easy to navigate. However, you do have to pay a monthly fee for the overdraft protection feature and to prevent from being charged a fee for every transaction made. My biggest gripe with Netspend is the inconsistency in when your direct deposit appears in your account. At first, the pay I receive from my employer would appear on Wednesdays every two weeks. However, it appears after a while, direct deposit transactions from the same employer were showing up later and later. My last payday, for example, I got paid Thursday morning around 5 am. This week is another payday for me, and I have yet to see my paycheck appear in my account, which has caused significant inconvenience for me. With that said, I'm going to switch to another online bank.

This website can be used to search and identify numbers, and while it does function as advertised,m it's also a trap where you do NOT want to provide them with your credit or debit card number and information. I recently used them based on some curiosity of an unknown number I received a phone call from by paying for a 0.95 cent one-day trial fee. Well to my surprise, the following day I was automatically billed $ 19.95 and there's no option on their website to cancel the subscription.

The reason I gave it a one-star rating is due to the fact that when I try signing up, the buttons on the home page do not work, therefore I can't even so much as provide an email address.

Futurism is an online source of information on various scientific topics; it's a great source of up to date on the latest technological, medical, and other science-related advances. All of the information they present is peer-reviewed and I love how they break down even some of the most complex information into reading content that just about anyone can understand. If the Futurism admin and staff are reading this, please keep up the great work in educating your audience on great topics.

It's beyond me why anyone even still buys into the outrageous propaganda, hate, and outright lies this website is known for passing around. But I guess one can apply the old saying "birds of a feather flock together" when it comes to the like of Alex Jones and others who call themselves "journalist" on this site, considering the amount of racist and other derogatory commentaries that comes from the staff of Infowars and commenters who visit this site.

Probably the worst and least safest social media sites that I know of; this website seems to allow some users to freely post and display pornographic content despite like any other social media website, you can be as young as 12 years of age to create a profile and use it, which I find to be a bit disturbing. Additionally, when I addressed this concern to the admin or people who run and monitor this website, I was met with perhaps the most unprofessional response and attitude I've ever encountered from just about any business. I'm honestly not even sure how this website did not get shut down yet, as it seems it would be a paradise for those who like to sexually prey on underage consumers.

Indeed

Indeed

Indeed.com is by far one of the better job search sites, most of the employment opportunities listed on there are real employers and this site does have some good features such as being able to save a job and apply for it later when the applicant is ready, however, like most job search engines Indeed has a flaw that becomes quite a nuisance that clutters up a person email inbox and can be a time waster, which time is something very precious to many applicants. The feature that allows Indeed users to save a search and receive email notifications based on that search needs a lot of improvement. For example, one of my job searches is specifically for Emergency medical technician and other health care provider opportunities, therefore receiving constant emails notifications for jobs as a tire technician is beginning to become a major inconvenience where Im spending more time deleting notifications for irrelevant job positions than actually applying for positions someone as myself are qualified for.

Zazzle

Zazzle

Zazzle is a website where users can design and sell a variety of customized products, the design lab they offer is very simple to use due to the self-explanatory steps involved and installed guides making it very user-friendly. Also, users can set up their own store and promote their own brand. However, despite these positive attributes, users who wish to sell certain clothing items such as customized underwear along with other miscellaneous products, are very limited in what types of items they want to specialize in. For example, my best selling items were customized shoes that made some sales. After making a few sales with these items, they ran out of stock and Ive been waiting several months for them to restock. Also, anyone who wishes to design and sell other items such as customized underwear will be disappointed, as it has been over a year since these items have been available despite them still being an option on the website. Because of their lack of available items, I have to say this website does not provide a stable foundation for artists who have special or specific niches. The lack of consistency in their stock options makes using this website a hassle to the point the user-friendly design platform simply does not make up for it.

Tip for consumers: If you come across a specific product (s) that becomes your bread and butter for sales, don't expect it to be long-term due to Zazzle's ineptness in item stock management.

I have recently registered and opened up an online store on this E-Commerce website, however even after integrating available apps such as Printful and Art Of Wear to my online store, I cannot figure out how to add products to my store and no instructions on how to do so are provided.

Art Of Where (AOW) is a website where an artist can create and sell custom printed clothing as well as a few other miscellaneous items; its also a website where normal consumers may customize said items and purchase them for themselves. The designing platform they provide is very simple and user-friendly, and once a user gets well familiarized with it, can get very creative in designing or customizing the items they offer. While AOW does offer some quality items, the selection is relatively limited. As a graphic designer who is in the process establishing my own graphic based clothing line, I would like to see AOW further diversify their stock items to include adding some men's clothing. However, for now, the selection caters exclusively to women and girls as far as clothing items are concerned.

Grammarly as marketing is an online spelling and grammar checking tool; I have utilized it on several occasions for writing school papers and creating or revising resumes. Not only does it provide word suggestions, it also corrects punctuation errors, while it integrates itself on many websites to include social media such as Facebook, there are still some websites and apps it cannot be integrated onto, however, copying and pasting content is an easy solution. It also has an advanced feature that you have to pay for a member upgrade in order to access, but I do not find it necessary you really want to set your personal bar very high in writing. I am very pleased with this website and application so far and do hope they continue to evolve it as it's a reletively new online tool available to internet users.

I have found this website to come in very useful for many purposes in regards to writing, I use it routinely for school papers as a means in aiding me in helping find words that fit well into my literature, and have even used it when writing and revising resumes. I also like the feature it has where you can switch between the thesaurus mode to dictionary mode as needed.

While the process of setting up and publishing a shop on this website is simple and user-friendly, for some reason users are limited to be able to sell specific products despite having several more appealing items in inventory. Additionally, I find it very irritating that some products will not allow you to design some items with your artwork and design requirements are not disclosed. I have also ran into a few bugs on this website that at some point wouldn't allow me to add additional custom made items to my shop

I created an account on this website in hopes to customize and sell clothing, but I find the website overall impractical to use due to a glitch that constantly logs me out of my account and over half of the time doesn't let me log in at all. Fix this annoying glitch and allow me a chance to actually get a feel for the features on this site, and I may give it a higher rating. Until then, I have no positive feedback to provide.

First of all, apparently the website and physical locations are different companies, yet both use the same website? So if you decide to get a loan online, you won't be able to physically retrieve your funds at any nearby physical location like you can with Speedy cash. Speaking of other payday lenders, Speedy cash and others have a lower interest, so it really doesn't5 make much sense to take out a loan with Check n Go anyhow. Also, this is the first place I've ever done business at who will not take an early payoff, which is VERY dumb. They will make you wait until the scheduled payday. This company really needs to get its $#*! together, perhaps they need a new CEO who will restructure the entire company.

Words that come to my mind when describing this trash source of so-called news: Trash, extreme bias, hatred, and implausible. This is an example of tainted journalism that has inflicted damage on social order and adds to the factors of what makes politics in America a complete circus show.

Nothing but a bunch of opinionated based garbage being spouted by people who are very limited in knowledge of the topics they discuss.

Signed up with them a few months ago when I was searching for a part time job to work on the side. Their searches often would produce the same results as many other job banks, but when you subscribe to updates by email, they're annoying and useless as all out. Every notification I would get from them was advertising jobs on other states which does nothing but clog up my email account with junk. Also, it seems there's a lot of redundancy involved when applying for jobs through this search bank. It's nothing more then a waste of valuable time for anyone who is serious about looking for work and wanting to find entry level employment into a career.

I ordered an item last May and still have not received the product. Their tracking message on the "where's my package" link stated it was still enroute, however, when I asked them about this item, they stated that it was delivered late May. I do not recommend this shopping site due to its lack of reliability.

I created an account with Western Union online in hopes to having a more convenient way to pay some of my household bills, however so far NONE of my creditors to include my mortgage company shows up in their data base. For as long as this company has been in existence, they sure do seem to be under-established, from my personal experience so far, I would tell anyone considering using them to not waste their time.
