They make you join their "club" to look at items. Always a red flag. I had a hard time cancelling my membership even though I only purchased one item. I did not bother returning the item. Too much trouble. Much better ways to get exercise clothes.

Their offers by mail can be excellent. Problem is sorting through them and finding the best item. Their emails are constant and you have to sign up for them to get the best prices. Horrible place to get shoes. I've lost so much money just trying shoes I thought would work. They have a very nice brand called Naot which they sometimes have some great deals on. Sometimes prices can be ok, but better items can be found on the Rei outlet online.

Tip for consumers: Hit and miss site. Use carefully.

I have sarafin sp rugs from them and they are great value and great quality. My mother has purchased other items from them and they've been great as well. One cabinet came with a cracked shelf, but they sent another one.

I find some good deals on this site. I always compare the price with their other sites Amazon.com and zappos.com. Prices fluctuate so be careful. If gotten burned on shoes that don't fit and have had to pay return postage. Some things are not much discount. There are deals to be had, but check Amazon first because with Amazon prime accounts you can get the free shipping and returns. Sometimes the Amazon price for the same item is cheaper.

Very hard to work with. All online so no hard copies. My work had a stock option and used them. I would never choose them to work with.

I have the prime service and use it all the time. I'm not sure I'm getting the greatest price, but the convienace is excellent and the 2 day shipping prime members get is excellent. Note you must have a printer to generate return labels. Be careful of marketplace sellers or items not fulfilled by Amazon as ou may get variable service and pay shipping.

I like some of their clothes and even have some items I've been wearing for years. It's really hit and miss with them online. Some shirts have necks that are too low. Bottom line I stopped buying from them due to the trouble it took to find clothes that looked cute and worked. Their prices have gone up and that's very unfortunate.

I buy what I can from them. The prices are great and the returns are super easy due to the fact that they enclose a prepaid return label. Rarely do the charge for shipping and it's indicated when they do. Sizing is consistent more often than not. They mainly have basics like jeans and solid color shirts. They have some good plus sized items and also great boots similar to uggs, but much cheaper in price.

The sizing has been consistent most of the time. The clothes are cute and this year they have more design options than just skulls on everything. I'm very careful when I buy and make sure I'm sure. I have never returned anything because of the difficulty in doing it. They do not come with a shipping label and there is not a way to order online. Some sale items are no returnable final sales so be careful with that. I have found the sport bras very inconsistent in size. The arms on the t shirts used to be too tight, but they seemed to have fixed that issue. I find their sizing to be more consistent than modcloth. I continue to buy from them very carefully.

I have an Apple Store in my town, so I do ship to store even though the parking is horrendous. This way I can control when I get it. Apple is better in the store because they will set up things there. It's worth the extra price which is usually very close to Costco or Best Buy. If it's a little item that needs no set up like a phone case I recommend buying it elsewhere it will be cheaper.

Zappos

A little pricey, but the returns are free and easy. Nice company to deal with. Deals are better on Amazon and 6pm. These are their sites as well. 6pm requires a trip to ups or the post office to return, so I usually buy thing that I already know will fit because I already have purchased one.

I've ordered a bunch of stuff from zulilly. The shipping was so slow that the things I ordered were out of season by the time I got them. Winter clothes arriving in summer. I have a few items that I really like, but I've lost more money with them than I've saved. A lot of the things were unusable. Many of the things I had to get rid of. One of my clothing orders was literally thrown in a box. It was a mess and no carevwas taken. With sizing know your measurements and be prepared to size up. All of the clothing is sized differently.

Tip for consumers: Read sizing very carefully for each and every item. Things run smaller than I would expect. Get a tape measure and know your measurements.

Ok I met one guy who I talked and texted with a long time. We finally met and on the 3rd date he embarrassed me at Taco Bell by making a scene with anger. It's pretty bad if I cannot take someone to a half star restaurant without them being mean to the employees. Met another guy. We went to Mass together and other activities at the church. Went on a few other dates. Turns out he is a criminal. I found him on a state government website. Even had a domestic violence violation. I met him in 2016. He had last had serious trouble in 2014. I confronted him on it and he said let's move on. I don't think online dating is a viable option.

I purchased a lifetime membership because at the time it was a good deal. I ended up canceling my membership and deActivating completely. I met 2 guys in real life from this site. One was local and the other lived a long ways away. Neither of them were romantic, but more like temporary friendships. Neither of these guys had a diagnosis of any kind, but just felt more comfortable on the site.
The problem is the chat. There are cliques and they lash out at other members. They gang up on people. It actually made me feel worse. I got a whole lot happier when I got off this site and less depressed. The webmaster is not responsive to problems of inappropriate behavior. There are mentors on the site and one of them is not particularly healthy or helpful. In fact she is toxic,
After I got ganged up on I left the site and moved on to better things in real life. It's a waste of time and money as well as emotional energy.

Tip for consumers: If you decide to use this site stay off the chat section to avoid toxic people.

Men looking for easy ways to have sex. On night stands are what most of them want. I did run into a con artist however who wanted sex and money. I think he is probably married. On our first date he came on very strong physically. Then he basically ignored me after asking for money for gas. He called me later and asked me for 1k for a household repair. It was out of the blue after much time had passed. I told him no. Then 6 months later he showed up at my doorstep asking for money. I made the mistake of letting him in. I gave him $40 so he would leave. He scared me. It has been over a year and he has not showed up at my home, so I hope I'm ok now. I contacted the site to report him and they did nothing. The other guys I met on there were just looking for a hook up and when I turned them down they sent me abusive angry messages. After ok Cupid I had no desire to date for a year and a half. I became totally uninterested due to the trauma of ok Cupid. If i had been looking to be used and abused for sex and money this would have been the site for me. Fortunately I want something healthy. I found using a religious site works better and the guys move more slowly and actually get to know the person.

Tip for consumers: Don't use it. If it's free there's a reason for it. If you want rapid random hookups/one night stands from men this is the site for you. If you want to give money to strangers this is the site for you. Otherwise stay far away.

I was linked with someone from another dating website. It turned out the guy was a criminal. When I asked him how he found out about the dating site he said the app store. Then he got on and I saw another website. He had no idea what paranormal date or coast to coast were. I had to threaten paranormal date that I would contact the BBB and state attorney general if they did not take my profile off completely. I'm looking into cancelling my credit card because I do not trust this company. It turns out the are part of global personal. When I called paranormal date on the phone it seemed like a conglomerate and also sounded liked they recorded their message in a bathroom because of the echo sounds. Not only did I have trouble getting rid of the guy, but I also had trouble getting rid of the service. I had signed up for 3 months, but was on less than 3 weeks. I was ready to forfeit my membership. I have had to threaten the guy I met with the police if he ever bothers me again.

Update: cancelled my credit card I used on the site, so future bills will not be made on it. Had to threaten them again because it seems that they put me on paranormal date 40+. I think I'm off it all finally.
If you want to read more about the company who owns this site and the problems they have look at the Wikipedia article on global personals.

Tip for consumers: Don't use this site. Threaten them with legal action if they won't take your profile down. This is not a way to find like minded people.
