About Me

Here to let people know about my 100% true and accurate experiences with purchases. All of my reviews are legit. I have no reason to waste time and energy lying about my shopping experiences.The whole credibility rating thing is ridiculous and wow I really thought site jabber was different but bribing people to get into their social media accounts is just the lowest of the low.

How I Can Help

Start using paypal for most of your purchases and don't buy from 3rd party or unknown/unfamiliar merchants/sellers/websites. Using just a credit card will earn you a headache and no money back, especially with unknown/3rd party, merchant/sellers/sites. I do occasionally make the mistake of purchasing from an unfamiliar website and I am more then happy to tell you about it.

Interests

Shopping with competent self aware companies that care about their customers.

I bought an item and it was of very low quality and after examining it, I had no use for it in my kitchen. I contacted the company and asked for a better quaility item or a refund and they refused to answer my emails. I opened a paypal case and was forced to try to take my money back. Non surprisingly(Lately)paypal helped the company rip me off. Paypal has been pretty awful for the past couple of years actually.No new companies for me. I will stick to the ones I know will send out a replacement item or refund.It's the lessons we learn to stick to companies that value their customers that keep them in business.

Tip for consumers:
Don't purchase anything form this company

I placed my order, they told me about a week later the product was on backorder. Cool, no problem. Then without even properly informing me they cancel my order behind my back without my permission. They claim that none of their warehouses even have the product.So they have product listings on their website that they will have you falsely believe that they have/carry the product you pay for. I told them to take the product listing down if they have zero of the product in any of their warehouses. They flat out refused to take down the listing. They would rather lie to customers, waste people's time and cause drama. I thought better of bed bath and beyond and they proved me dead wrong.

Tip for consumers:
Don't bother they wont even have what you order on their site and only inform you after you order and then rudely cancel without telling you that they dont have/carry it

They go by 4 different names "JJ games","Piko interactive","VGbrands llc" and "retro games interactive" They will send you broken games and then when you email them they do not respond to emails and will certainly lie that they did respond to your email should you contact them.On top of sending you broken games they will in a cowardly and unprofessional manner demand you pay the shipping to send back the broken game they sent you before they will give you a refund. Trash company. I have bought from they before and had never had any problems so maybe they should weed out the crap employee that is ruining their business, if it's the owner Wow I feel for them self sabotaging their own business. Either way they lost a repeat customer for good.

Tip for consumers:

I have been sitting at under the 10,000 points needed to redeem for years. Completely useless waste of time of a survey site. I regret signing up.

Tip for consumers:
Don't sign up on this site.

Products used:

Spectrum internet service itself is decent and I enjoy it but the customer service is one of the worst EVER.It is excruciatingly painful to have to call and talk to them.(1 or 2 in 20 reps are ok)Guaranteed by the time you get off the phone with them you will be irritated, frustrated and maybe even angry.The reps do not try to make your life easier with smooth problem solving or question answering. I suspect the way they talk to, treat people and handle the calls they must be doing it on purpose to deter people from calling and/or they are abused by their employers/superiors so they do the same and take it out on their customers with subtle psychological warfare and gaslighting. Spectrum decent, customer service/tech support awful.

Tip for consumers:
If you can use another unlimited no contract internet service provider that has decent internet service but better customer service.

They brainlessly discontinued one of their best organic cotton products and the rep that answered my email simply did not care that I shop exclusively online and have no use for the paper coupon she sent proving their do not care about their customers.Not of their products have ever fallen apart or bled through on me. They need to stop wasting their own time and everyone else's and make all their products organic, fragrance free and chemical free.No one wants all the bad stuff anymore and are switching away from chemicals, dyes and non organic cotton. You will not be able to leave a review of a product, their website will block you from doing it.So it makes sense that the review of their website are fake.

Tip for consumers:
Time to switch

This site used to be called schlesinger associates/schlesinger group. I have been a member for many years and have only redeemed a gift card once.My balance had been sitting just below their minimum restrictive value for years and recently like all survey sites that tank, they "revamped" their site and now call it focusgroup by schlesinger and like many scam survey sites they now offer fake surveys for hundreds of dollars per survey that no one will ever see/earn because they will get all the info they need from gullible people with the pre screener survey for free.No site pays lots of money per survey, it's a known scam.The only good thing is they allowed me to redeem what I had my account and will be closing down my account because doing tons of pre screeners for free for years and never earning any money is not worth my time and effort. Elijah the customer service rep is very rude, he should not be in any type of customer service.

Tip for consumers:
Don't bother signing up you won't earn anything.

You would think that after spending over $80 for glasses that you would get free shipping with this company, nope. They lost a sale because of their own greed. I don't shop greedy companies. Also the t. V show "adam ruins everything" let the cat out of the bag about the fact that all eyeglasses are manufactured by one company and then the retail prices vary to it IS the individual companies marking up eyeglasses 3 or 4 times the price it took for them to be made. Truly disgusted with the facts.

UPDATE: Bizarrely they have none of their products on Amazon currently and I ordered another product and this time they used awful Ding Hong as their shipping partner and after ordering the product there just isn't proper tracking so I contacted them and asked them to contact Ding Hong to have them update the tracking. They rudely responded with the tracking number as if I don't already have it to see the poor tracking. I would rather order their from Amazon. I will only be ordering from them if I need something but I will be looking into other companies that offer better customer service. I like their products I have purchased from them previously.One I purchased from amazon and it's works great. I just ordered another one of their products and paid shipping to have it basically move like a slug right before christmas. Once in got into the U. S Mpow utilized USPS and a third party shipper. Unfortunately if they had just used USPS it would have made it here by now but their third party shipper Pitney Bowes are slow as slugs, and neither of them care it's christmas. Mpow acts like I'm being impatient when they are using one of the the slowest methods to ship: Using a third party shipper. I will not be buying directly from them until they get rid of using third party shippers.It's especially rude to customers that pay for shipping.

Tip for consumers:
Buy their products from amazon or other third party seller.Unlike any other company on the planet,it's not worth the grief of ordering directly from them.Order directly from them only if you have no other options.

I love the concept of the natural medicine alternative and would like to be apart of this but I can't even try this product because it's so way over the top almost arrogantly overpriced. When they bring their prices significantly I can try it and evaluate it. Until then 1 star.

Don't buy overpriced medicine

When they leave people on hold for six hours because you are over 250 in line and you try to talk to 2 live chat people about the problems THEY caused the customer, then they are only in business for the money. Hire more people to answer the phone. Very rude customer service reps that try to shift the blame to the customers for wrongs columbia causes. Also they might want to do something about not honoring their warranties and their less then stellar zippers. Extremely unprofessional company.

Tip for consumers:
I would avoid this company if every purchase experience is like this one.

They refuse to honor any promo codes.If you put a code in it will just take off whatever piddley amount they want to take off. When confronted they act oblivious "oh OUR discount code works just fine" when I wasn't referring to their tiny discount code. Then I went back to the site to see if the promo would work and they jacked the price of the glasses up another 5 bucks. I don't give my money to greedy scam artists. They didn't gain a customer/sale because of being greedy.

Avoid

Like an idiot I went against my own policy and used my credit card without paypal but also to buy a high priced item. They cancelled my order almost as fast as they stole my money and NEVER refunded me. Expensive lesson to learn that A: never buy expensive items on the internet, B: Never shop without paypal and C: Never buy anything form best buy. I knew better and did it anyway. Back to following my policies

Tip for consumers:
Don't shop at best buy and don't use your credit card without paypal.

I messaged 3 sellers on ebay about one particular item.One was "Retro Game Repair Shop" that has lots of negative and neutral reviews, the second is "8-bit-item-shop" with several negative reviews and the other is brand new seller named "smartseller42" and all the emails were answered by "JP" at "Retro Game Repair Shop". It seems that "Retro Game Repair Shop" is trying to shake their awful reputation but as you can see on the "smartseller42" and "8-bit-item-shop" reviews that "JP" cannot stop acting like his awful self so of course it followed him to the newer accounts. People have to be extra diligent as one chat rep confirmed ebay disgustingly allows sellers can have multiple accounts. I have encountered sellers with multiple accounts twice now. I believe in second chances but I should also be allowed to not have to deal with a seller after I have decided I do not want to buy from a particular seller in the future and customers cannot make that choice if ebay allows them to hide behind multiple accounts allowing them to defraud people by dishonestly representing themselves. Ebay should be banning accounts after a certain number of negative reviews and have stringent security protocols so that those same sellers cannot open new accounts. Quite shameful behavior on ebay's part allowing this to go on. Absolute comedy that they say they have 4500 reviews, so then they are confirming the multiple accounts therefore the awful way they treat customers is accurate also then. I am so glad I decided not to do business with these clowns.

Tip for consumers:
Watch Out:Purchase At Your Own Risk,The Reviews Speak For Themselves.Do not buy from sellers with more then 3 negative reviews in the last year/12 months.

We have 99.6% positive feedback for the past 12 months with 4500 reviews. I'm sorry that you think that eBay should be banning users with this amount of positive feedback but that is extremely unlikely.

There are tons of products like this out there, there are really no different. They set themselves apart by being expensive while claiming they are not.The package says plant based. Well yeah that's what cotton is. Also bizzarely there is a "best by" date on the dry wipes. All in all I will stick to what I use because new and pricey is not my thing.(Well the pricey part)

Tip for consumers:
Use kleenex,it's nice and cheaper

Overpriced and not customer friendly.The first time they screwed up my order it was fixed right away with no drama, the next time they screwed up it was an ordeal.My points are expiring? I earned them. Any company that lets/makes peoples reward points expire only cares about money, not their loyal customers. Just like at many locations, the employees are either snobby/rude or ignore customers. I will purchase from ulta if I can't find what I am looking for somewhere else first.

Don't use or frequently use shopping sites that don't allow you to keep you earned reward points.

When LG discontinues a spare part to one of their products they will send you on a wild goose chase of several phone numbers and websites and to this company that not only cannot find any record of the part they are looking for but on of of their two websites(www.lgparts.com), they will block any/all ability to communicate with them. I was able to get a hold of someone after a 40 minutes on hold on the second phone number I was given. She searched for the spare part, could not find it at all in their system. She saw it on google but she could not see it in their system and even after contacting a coworker, the part part still could not be found.No spare parts for the 2 year old LG Item and very little to no communications concerning the part. This is what will transpire if you buy LG products. I would never recommend an LG product as long as these things are happening/occuring.
