Zoara

Zoara

9/22/12

I bought a wedding band from Zoara and took it to my local jeweler for an evaluation. She claimed the workmanship was mediocre and needed some improvement. The price was okay. The quality of the diamonds were decent. This was a wedding band with 11 small diamonds so I guess it was more tougher to make than a solitaire diamond ring. The engraving was the worst she had seen in years. Overall, I'm satisfied with the product, but not fully satisfied. The customer service is top-notch and superb in every way. They operate on a 24-hour and in many languages (Eng, Span, Fren and Chi)

ConnectingSingles

This dating site is 100% legitimate. Unlike Mingle2, where it comprises mostly with scam artists, ConnectingSingles members are all real. The only drawback is, there are not many candidates within my city, which has a population of over 5M. The ones that are within 100 mile radius are mostly checked out months ago. In fact, that is one feature on ConnectingSingles that you don't find in other sites....the last time they logged on the site. CS is not as popular as Okcupid or POF. However, I still recommend you create an account just to see if you might potentially find your mate. I spoke with a couple girls, not from the States, but like I said, it at least works.

Restaurant.com

First off, what people say about R.com here are all true. I'll try to share everything in bullet points.

Good: If the restaurants accept it, then it's worth the price you pay
Bad: Not all restaurants accept R.com certificates. Call in advance or simply pay before you eat.

Good: After your first purchase, you will get promotions such as $25 certificate for $4 or five $25 certificates for only $20. (it's still a good deal)
Bad: Be careful, they do NOT refund the purchase price regardless what the reason is.

Good: They list all types of restaurants, from American to Asian, to Mexican.
Bad: Their "distance" is bogus. I searched restaurants within 15 miles within the vicinity and the results even listed restaurants 25 miles away.

Good: No expiration date on the certificates
Bad: Don't matter. Sooner or later, either the restaurants refuse to accept these certificates, or they stop their "contract" with R.com

From experience, restaurants normally charge a gratuity or "extra" tax if you decide to use R.com certificates. (not mentioned under Terms & Conditions). Overall, I'm satisfied with R.com, but based on the hundreds of reviews I read, R.com is not on anyone's side. Not restaurant owners or consumers. They're there to make money from both ends. They are more of an online restaurant advertiser.

I can't say they are a scam, but I definitely can't say they are good to use. Use it at your own risk!!!

PostJobFree

PostJobFree

We posted a job that worked well for a few weeks. Several candidates applied and we finally hired someone on the spot. A month later, we needed to add another someone doing a similar role on the team. We reposted the same ad and never again did we get a single applicant. It's been months now, after couple renewal attempts.....NOT a SINGLE applicant. (oh, the requirement is low).

Useless by default. They might favor you if you sponsor a job but it defeats their "post job free" name.

No need to repeat what other 1-star reviews have said. It's basically 97% of female profiles with "Hi..." and always put "I'll tell you later" under the interest section. Feel free to create a profile, as it is free, but it's not even worth your time to create one, since you can't get your time back.
