This site used to be pretty straight forward. You always had to watch out for the redirects/pop-ups, but now they are relentless and the converter doesn't even work anymore...

Tip for consumers: Look for another site.

Pretentious people giving long-winded answers to silly questions.

Ex- "Why couldn't the Hulk beat Thanos?" and then someone writes a Novel about their opinion on the matter like they wrote the characters and created the MCU.
Why do I need this sent to me in email? I though it was more for deep conversation, but I rarely see any of that anymore.

If you have a real question, it tends to not get answered.
And a lot of questions I have seen that get more volume seem to be regurgitated questions that have been asked before.

Ex - "What was something that happened to you as a kid that made you never look at the world the same?"
Then a month later, "What was a traumatizing experience that happened to you at a young age that made you look at the world differently?"

After using it for a couple years, all I can say is the site is ultimately an echo-chamber filled with a lot of silly conversation when it's supposed to be intellectual. And it's becoming more and more difficult to find those gems of informative conversation.

Tip for consumers: Have an opinion on Thanos.

Update: I bought my Hero4 when they were brand new for $700 when they first came out. I thought it was worth it because of the 4k capabilities. Well... That was the most money I've ever straight-up wasted on a product because after owning it for a few years, it no longer charges or turns on. I have tried multiple batteries and tried to downgrade the firmware as people have mentioned. But I can't even get it to turn on to do that.
I must say, I HATE GoPro now. The company generates profit off of "legal scams". Just like Apple.

Is the fish eye lens the only reason people continue to buy these? GoPro is one of the most profitable companies... Probably because they manufacture a ton of crap products in China and mark them up 100x and just have a name brand that everyone wrongly trusts.
*cough* Apple.
I was included here. I bought the Hero 5 black when it first came out for the ridiculous price of $700 because it had 4k and I thought it would be worth it... I was poorly mistaken. After taking my first video and plugging it directly into my 4k TV (which requires a special, expensive, GoPro exclusive adapter) the 4k was choppy/granular and seemed like the first 15 seconds or so of video every time you press play has to buffer.
Also, after having it for just over a month, I placed it in one of the cases, locked it, opened it later and the housing was cracked... I payed $700 for this fragile POS? God, I'm stupid!
Besides that, the battery life has always been pathetic. But guess what? You can always buy another battery for too much money to have as a backup. Oh, also, how about that little LCD screen that you can add on to it for too much money as well that will make your battery last about 30 minutes when recording 4k?

Their business model takes after that of Apple- Make products that you can monopolize a market with and then make them low-quality, reiterate the same designed year after year and make it seem like a monumental change and charge a fortune for them just because you can. And people keep falling for it because somewhere along the line, they earned the "cream-of-the-crop" title.

Tip for consumers: Don't buy a GoPro. Go with another brand. You can find knock-offs on Wish for like $50 and they are of comparable quality.

They promote the site with "high quality & real followers" and that could not be farther from the truth.
I blocked all of the accounts instantly and requested a refund because of their "money back guarantee". I informed them that I had done that and it was because the followers were obviously fake and they replied with "we'll look further into it". Sure...
When I initially requested my money back, they pushed other services on me. I, then again, requested a refund and they further tried to push products on me. I had to request my money back a third time for them to get the point. At which time, they informed me that the request would be added to a queue and I would receive my refund within 15 days.
I waited 15 days and nothing. Contacted them and they told me that it "had already been added to the queue and I would receive it within 2-3 days... That means I did not, and still have not received my refund and it has been over 15 days.
This sight is a scam ran by people from another country. You can tell by the broken English their "support team" communicates with.
They don't care about providing you with real social media marketing, they just want your money.

I believe the 5-star reviewer is either from the company, or misinformed.

Tip for consumers: Don't do it.

I mean, really, the title says it all. There are plenty of other font sites that don't charge you anywhere near that price. And there's even free font sites that have the same quality fonts at no cost...
And as L T. mentioned, there aren't any free one's on the site.

I think they might just be banking on "not-so-savvy" people and owning the domain "fonts.com"

Tip for consumers: If you are looking for free fonts go to dafont.com.

Besides the mass amount of spam email I receive from them, the worst part about this website is how you can't get anywhere without them trying to empty your pockets - Go to upload a song, "file size too big. (greater than 8mb) please upgrade your plan to continue uploading". Or - "we thing your song is worthy of some free promotion, claim it here." Then you proceed to click and fill out pages and pages of garbage, just to get to the last page where you notice that they actually plan to charge you for it. No transparency! It's a setup. Illegitimate. BS.
Side note- I only ever had 1 fan on the platform and I'm pretty sure it was a troll.
I could go on for days about how useless this website is, but everyone else's comments pretty much sum it up. Don't waste your time like I did!

Tip for consumers: "It's a trap!"

When you type in "Adobe Illustrator" into Google, this is one of the first things to pop up. Upon investigation, (because the deal seems too good to be true) I have found that most of the comments are fake and many people have been given codes that don't work when entered. It's a shame that Google lets companies like this appear at the top of their search results. I can't imagine how many people that are just trying to save a buck are getting scammed. This website needs to be shut down.

Tip for consumers: Don't let them fool you. Stay far away from this site!

Whenever I looked up "PS4 Spiderman bundle black Friday" on Google, this is the first result. When you go to the website it says "In stock" right there. When you go to look at your bag it still says "available". Then, when you get to check out, it's "out of stock".
I was hoping to order from this site to not have to deal with black Friday rushes, but it caused me to miss out on the deal anywhere else because I showed up a half hour after the sales started at my local stores.

Thanks Belk!

Tip for consumers: Use a different site.

Ended up on this website after looking for places to rent in my hometown... The deals they portray are those "too good to be true" listings. They ask you to visit the website for more info after posting only one terrible resolution photo of a single small room to a place like Craigslist. Upon visiting the website, they ask for personal info (which I'm glad I didn't provide) and then when you get to the next page where you expect to see more details, they want you to then sign up for a "7-day free trial". This is nothing short of a legal scam in my books and this website should be shut down.

Tip for consumers: STAY FAR AWAY!

Do not apply for jobs or give any info on this website. It is completely fraudulent! Amazon's real address for jobs is "amazon.jobs" and their starting wages are much lower that what this website represents them as. A red flag is "you can make $500 a day working from home in just a couple hours."

I had an all around terrible experience with this company. Figured I would leave some reviews on the hats but they never sent me an email to review them and that seems to be the only way to post reviews...(possibly because I made it clear that I was unsatisfied, and they only want 5-star reviews on their website). In the email asking for a rating (of the stickers), it says a one-star review isn't acceptable and to reach out. Even before noticing that, I reached out and asked for replacements because the hats received were sub-par, to say the least... especially for the price: With obvious stitching mess ups and off-centered/ tilted logos and bent bills, etc... I sent pictures and they were happy to replace all of the hats. I sent them back and it took 2 days to get to Findlay and almost 2 weeks to get the replacements. And I live near Portland... When I received the replacements, one of the hats was missing... I looked at the invoice and it said *double checked*. Also, one of the hats they sent back to me was the same one I sent them back. I know this because I took a picture of a glob of glue on the inside top right side of the hidden pocket and when I inspected the hat I compared it to the picture and it was the exact same shape and size... also the bill was still bent the same way it had been when I sent it back. On that note, the bills to all the hats were pretty bent (dip down in the front) probably because they put them in such small boxes. I expressed that when returning them originally but when they sent the replacement hats they decided to cram 3 hats into one box this time... Also the designs on the bills are quite off-centered and bumpy. I was informed that it's because of the sublimation process, however, I have other hats with designs on the bill and they are stitched perfectly and have no bumps/waves/ overhanging material. When asking for replacements, I was told my friend and I would "be taken care of" but the service we received was exactly the opposite. It actually felt spiteful because when you receive a replacement order with one hat completely missing, another being the same one you shipped back, and another being in worse condition that the first one you sent back (in regards to the exact issues you mentioned)... It feels like someone is giving you the bird. In the end, my friend and I both wasted 4 dollars on express shipping and spent almost a month dealing with this terrible service. I'm surprised and super disappointed because the hats in the pictures that people post seem to be way higher quality than the ones we received... both times! 0/10 will never recommend.

Tip for consumers: Buy your hats elsewhere and save money, while at the same time receiving higher quality products.

Don't use this site. It's designed so you fill out surveys after survey but rarely accumulate currency. Just a good way to get people to fill out surveys for free.
They are aggressive emails marketers and the business model doesn't seem honest.

They lure you in with the offer of 5 free/ royalty-free pictures, but once you sign up, they make it intentionally hard to cancel your subscription... That auto-renews for $149/m in a week. You can't remove your card info as well*
Also, The library is not very impressive and a lot of pictures aren't cleared for commercial use or even actually royalty-free(especially the high-quality ones). Most of the pictures there aren't very large and the quality is sub-par. So for the price of $149/m, I am flabbergasted.

"IT'S A TRAP!"

Spent 30 minutes of my life that I will never get back navigating from page to page, confirmation after confirmation, to look at my own record (wanted to see driving record) just to find out at the last step that they want you to join and pay monthly installments to see the info they have. They had my age wrong as well... Don't waste your time!
