My wife called to book a parasailing trip for our kids in Miami over the Xmas break. The Viator rep on the phone was pushy and would not let go. She convinced my wife to book the trip 'at a bargain price' and confirmed that the bottom line including everything would be $200. When we got there they charged us another $66 for taxes and fees that were not mentioned earlier. We wasted half an hour on the phone with Viator, asked to file a complaint but did not get a satisfactory response. Things like this turn a relaxing vacation into aggravation and frustration. Very bad experience; cheating and misleading is not the way to conduct good business.

My 12 yr old son fractured his arm and had a large cast that also covers the elbow. The technician at the hospital recommended using DryCast and even gave us a large printed sheet advertising them. Their website says 'Right size the 1st time' but that was not our experience. We ordered the largest they have for kids (28") which seemed to make sense after I measured my son's arm. The price was supposed to be around $27 but we had to add $11 in order to receive it in less than a week.

I called them several times to consult but there was no answer, just an automated system that goes nowhere. So I placed the order and we received it after a few days. My wife was not happy to hear we spent so much money on something we could improvise with plastic bags and rubber bands. My son and I were disappointed to see that the thing did not fit. The length seemed okay but the opening in the round rubber gasket was so small, we could not stretch it over the cast.

I tried contacting them over the weekend and on Monday but got no reply. I think motivated business owners should have someone check emails and reply even on weekends and holidays, especially when selling time-sensitive items.

When I finally got them on the phone they agreed to refund me. They offered to send another Drycast at the right size (adult) but I knew it would arrive too late, already two weeks after the cast was placed. I mailed the thing back (wasted half an hour going to the post office and paid about $8).

The bottom line- it would be better to use plastic bags and rubber bands you already have at home, or maybe buy something similar on Amazon. Customer service is much better and you can easily return items that do not fit. For us, DryCast was a waste of time, energy and money. Good health to everyone!

Very good experience, at the best prices I could find online.
I needed to print 150 copies of a single page color sheet (letter size) that I created as a handout for a presentation. The service was professional, the print quality was high, shipping was quick. Some other companies bait you with low printing prices but the bottom line is double or triple because of shipping and handling. ColorCopiesToday.com provides good service, quality and value with no BS. Highly recommended:-)

I quickly lost interest after realizing they don't deliver ready food, you have to spend half an hour cooking... what's the point here? I can find free recipes online and buy whatever ingredients I need at the supermarket without these guys.
Anyway I unsubscribed several times, even contacted their customer service, yet the daily emails keep coming. Ugh, how pushy:-/

Yelp has made itself completely unreliable due to the algorithm that screens reviews and hides most of them as 'not recommended'. They also refuse to remove fake bad reviews and actually bring them to the front, in order to hurt the small business and pressure them to pay high fees, or actually ransom.

I have 20 reviews of 5 stars, all valid and honest from real clients, but they're all hidden as 'unrecommended'. Recently, someone (maybe even Yelp itself) posted a fake 1 star review on my business. There was no name, only initials, that are not of any client I've had. The review was online one line, no info on what service was provided or what the alleged bad experience was. Obviously nonsense, frivolous and with no merit. I reported it but Yelp decided to keep the fake review and bring it to the front, possibly in an attempt to make me pay their ransom for removing the bad review and publishing more of my good reviews. Completely unreliable, dishonest, unethical and even illegal (slander and defamation).

I paid for Yelp advertising for a few months but then stopped, as it was not cost-effective. People do not take you seriously when they see you only have two reviews. I also find that potential customers who inquire through Yelp often focus on low prices, without considering quality and qualifications. I have wasted a lot of time and energy responding to inquiries, corresponding and trying to explain. But if Yelp users only care about low prices, I better look for quality customers elsewhere.

Watch YouTube videos on 'The Billion Dollar Bully' and you'll see people using words like mafia, scam, fraud, extorsion. It is much better to write and check reviews on Google Maps. They post reviews as they are, with no nonsense bias, screening and hiding. Over time, businesses get many reviews, and the rating shows what most people think.

The concept is brilliant and the website looks great, but in reality- they do not check the background, licenses and qualifications of the service providers. Some people present themselves as professionals, do shoddy work, cause damage, rip off and disappear. They don't even check if the business really exists. Thumbtack takes no responsibility for that. They also have a class action law suit waiver. I would stay away from that website, better check reviews on real business on Yelp.
