My order was delayed for quite sometime due to a manufacturer backorder. There were times I wish there was better communication about the delay, however once the item was available everything went quickly and smoothly. I would shop here again.

I've ordered twice from this company, both times it took about a month for them to process and ship my order. That's a long time to wait on work clothing. I wasn't very happy the last time I ordered but I try to shop in Canada so I figured I'd give it another chance.

When my order finally arrived it was apparent that the sizing guide was completely wrong and the item quality was nothing like the picture so I would need to return or exchange one pair of pants. Despite the large add on their site saying they pay shipping both ways no return labels were included. I tried to find information about returns/exchanges on their site but you have to email them.

When my email was returned I was told if I wanted to return the item for a refund I would be responsible to send it back and also if subtracting that item from my order I would be responsible for shipping for the original order as it was now below minimum for free shipping.

If I wanted to exchange the item I had the option of paying for the item to exchange it first then receive a total refund once they receive my returned item. Or I could ship the item back and wait for them to process and then ship my exchanged item.

So basically

Pay to return item
Or pay to exchange and in about 2 months you'll have your new item and a refund.

This will be the last order I place with them. It's just too inconvenient, takes too long and the prices are too high. At the end of the day I can get the same scrub pants on Amazon for cheaper, in two days, no hassle. I've already purchased and recieved the same pair from Amazon because I need pants for work I haven't got months to work this out.

**Update** I chose to opt for the exchange. After another week of back and forth with their customer service rep Alyssah, I can say that I'm even more frustrated with this companies process and their lack of decent customer service. I was told I have to pay the balance on my exchange before they would even send me my labels to return my item and given a phone number to call to process payment. I had to send an email back asking for an invoice or their PayPal address as my original payment was through PayPal and at this point I certainly don't feel confident enough to call this company and give them my credit card information.

I was sent a link to process the payment....and the link didn't work. I had to email them again to get one that worked.Fastforward 5 more days...still no labels. Once again I had to email them saying I made the payment and where are the labels.

I'm predicting two months by the time I send back my item and wait for them to process and ship my new item. I've changed my rating to a 1 because at this point i'm beyond frustrated and I don't recommend anyone shops here.

I've tried many different styles and brands of underwear from many places with varying price points and for everyday functionality you can't beat Aerie. I am not a regular American Eagle customer but I tried the underwear after a friend recommended it. If you want something cute that holds up and doesn't ride up, give them a go. Online orders ship within a few days and they have a reward program.

Great company that sells good quality products for a purpose. Many items are made from recycled materials and they give you a code so you can go online and choose what project or country your purchase is impacting. A positive product review will earn you a discount on your next order and shipping is very fast. Buy things here.

I ordered a personalized leather collar and although it was nice when I got it it didn't even last 2 days before peeling and looking horrible. The collar could have also used an extra loop to hold the collar flap down. I was going to take it to a local leather shop to have one added but the collar looks so horrible after one week of him wearing it that there's no point spending the money. Disappointing to say the least.

I opted out of the subscription and ordered a single box to give this fruit a try. I liked the story and mission behind this company and who isn't looking for healthy snacks, right?

I decided to try a virety of the fruit so I ordered strawberries, raspberries, apples, bananas and peaches. The strawberries and peaches were recommended by other customers on the site so I made sure to include those in my choices.

It took about a month from when I ordered for it to arrive. That seemed fairly reasonable considering the site was warning about a 5 day shipping delay and a Canada Post strike although many others were complaining about shipping speed.

I was excited when my box arrived but that kinda dissipated when I started opening the pouches. I started with the peaches, when I opened the pouch it didn't smell like peaches but like some kind of tea and they tasted just like the smell. Rather dissapointing.

The bananas were the same but they do have a slight banana taste. A bunch of the banana slices were stuck together and they crumble when you try to separate them.

The apples were also disappointing in flavor. I like the shape more than the standard apple chip but they lack the flavour compared to other brands I've tried.

However the raspberries and strawberries are really quite delicious. The only problem with them is a lot if them got smashed in shipping, theres a lot of red powder in the pouches.

I'm not sure if I'll order again but if I do it will be a strictly berry order and I wouldn't go with the subscription. It's a nice treat but I'm not sure the cost and benefits are balancing.

I buy all my running shoes from here. One of the few sites that carry a wide selection of Altra running shoes (the only brand I wear due to the special toe box). Simple and quick to order, free shipping on orders over $150 and free returns - although I've never had to return anything.

I purchased what was advertised as a rugged case. This case came with a built in clip and seemed perfect as it was shown in use while biking and hiking.

When the case arrived it was nothing like the site advertised. It was cheaply made, thin flimsy plastic. Two fingers easily ends the case in half...tell me what that is protecting. The clip was also quite cheep and simply glued on to the case, the hole for the camera not even the correct size.

I contacted the seller for a refund as the item was not as described. I was given an address and told when I provided a tracking number they would issue a refund. After going to the post office I discovers it would cost mote than the cost of the item to return it, $45 CDN in fact.
I opened a dispute with PayPal and lost because I didn't accept a partial refund. I have photos of this item but nothing was considered by PayPal as they determined it was buyers remorse however if the item had been accurately described there would have been no purchase. As recommended by PayPal I contacted the seller again to try to get a refund. I was emailed back by someone named Jenni asking if I would accept half the amount refunded. I agreed in order to recover at least some of my money. The next day I received another email from a Mr. Ng once again telling me to return the product to that same Hong Kong address that would cost $45 CDN with a tracking number for the refund. I am still perusing reporting this scam with PayPal and consumer.gov so hopefully nobody else gets ripped off and scammed out of their money.

Don't buy anything here. It's all a scam and they are making money off the fact that you can't return it. I don't know why PayPal fell short on this one usually they do so well protecting purchases. Buyer beware this is not where you want to spend your money!

If you're like me and into this particular style you'll find a lot of the clothing you're looking for on this site. No problems with the transaction or the shipping for my purchase but I found the quality to be lacking.

I purchased a sundress and a purse. The first time I took the purse out the button fell off, not a huge deal but not something you want to fix on day one. The hem of the sundress came undone after the first washing on the delicate cycle. I understand you pay more for trendy vintage-like items but I would have expected the quality to be there. When you purchase an item you love you want to be able to enjoy it as much as possible not be afraid to wear it. I guess I just expected better.

You will see a lot of adds on Facebook for these leggings. They appear to have great quality leggings in tons of colours and patterns that look amazing on all sorts of people of different shapes and sizes.

Then there's the price...a bit high but if you poke around a bit you can find leggings on sale or a promo code for a discount, so that part is not bad. Free worldwide shipping...great! (it does take awhile so patients are required here) Once you place an order they send you an email offer for a lifetime discount for a small fee.Kinda makes you wonder why they are so quick to just give away these discounts, what are these leggings actually worth?

Then finally your leggings arrive and it's a complete disappointment. The quality and colours are nothing like the photos on the site. All the leggings I got were white on the inside so you see white and even through the pants with any little stretch. If you follow the size chart you will receive pants that do not fit, even going up a size they are very tight. Once you wash them once the colours fade even more.

It's really too bad as the designs are nice and what girl doesn't love a good pair of leggings? Save your money there are better options out there! Even cheep leggings from discount department stores will give you better results!

An add for free bracelets will come up on Facebook. Don't click it! I have never clicked on this add but somehow they got my email. I easily get 10+ emails from them per day.

When you visit the website http://chakrasmeditation.us and search for a way to contact them or unsubscribe you find a broken link under the contact us section.

I sent them a message on Facebook informing them that their site contained a broken link over 2 weeks ago and asking to be removed from their mailing list. I was told I was removed however instead they gave my email address to several more spam sites and I now receive over 40+ spam messages per day.

I've reported this spam activity to both the Canadian and US government as well as Facebook. If you see these ads report them don't click them!

Friendly little company selling natural products from Canada. Very friendly and helpful, fast responses to messages and speedy shipping. I was very happy with my order and will order from Island Natural Compounds again! They also have an Etsy shop.

Catfish central! Very few real people on that site. The longer you are on it the more crap you have to deal with. People use it as their own way of getting revenge on people they don't like or people that wouldn't date them or broke up with them. Pathetic people try to exploit anyone who is legitimately looking for some kind of relationship.

I had been an active member since 2011, participated and shared my own work with their "community". Randomly my account was deleted, no explanation, I contacted them more than once as to why and wasn't even responded to. I was blocked from the Facebook page as well.
I am a level II Reiki practitioner, active in the spiritual community and I host events, meditations,classes etc. I don't think there is anything spiritual about the way this site conducts business. All events that were shared with Spiritual Networks were FREE of charge to spread love and light, which in theory should be the foundation of anything that calls itself a "spiritual" anything.

Tip for consumers: Just don't. Find a better legitimate community . Try Soul Healing Light on Facebook.
