I have had roku since 2009. It was always good but now its really wonderful. So easy to use. you can get the Roku USB Stick Player for Free if you buy 3 mos of HULU and the more expensive Roku models 2 and 3 for half price.at HULU...good deal.
Also it works on many cable company's universal remotes but your cable company never knows this. Look it up on your providers code list...Usually it falls under AUX.

This program is usually used as the gold standard, but their goal is to get you to lose weight AND STILL EAT FOOD LIKES A 'NORMAL' PERSON. Great if you gained weight after pregnancy, but for a Food Addict, they show you how to eat sugar, drink, and celebrate in moderation. There own foods are loaded with salt and sugar.
Its like saying only do Crack on the weekends. Once an addict, moderation is not a choice. that is why they have very short lived success stories. They are still working off a self control model instead of a scientific addiction model. YOU WILL ALWAY FAIL IF YOU ARE A FOOD ADDICT- SUGAR, WHEAT, FLOUR, SALT and Alcohol is like shooting sugar directly into your veins. They maintain their customer base by teaching everything an addict should not be told. And then, you, feel so depressed and guilty gaining back the weight which is built into their system. Works great for people with some event driven weight gain, not professional eaters and dieters.

AS A SELLER: Eba used to be fair. Fees, back and forth feedback, real people to talk to. Now it takes out so much in Fees and Paypal fees, one ways feedback from buyer, holds sellers hostage, rules always changing, makes it hard to compete with all the overhead. NO DIRECT PHONE NUMBERS FOR HELP

AS A BUYER: You can certainly get good deals and safer than Craigs list. But your experience is as good as your seller's service. They stand behind purchases for Buyers but really do nothing to protect sellers.

THEY NEED PHONE CONTACTS NOT THOSE ANNOYING FORMS AND FAQ

Inhumane, dirty, dangerous conditions where families and children work round the clock and live right at factories. It is ethically appalling. I can support this for a $10 pair of Jeans.

They have every brand of everything BUT what they really have is a VERY SMART STAFF that will spend time with you and guide you not by price but by what you need. They are honest. They will teach about things, why this is too much camera for me or why the older model is just as good.
It is really nice to know, I can always trust them. And I have for over a decade. No tax and maybe free shipping.

and now for the bad news.....they overcharge and charge for everything. Parking still may be free, but haven't been there this week.
STEAL THEIR DESKS AND LEAVE THE PEN!

They exist to destroy the lives of the 99%, yet are involved in every illegal practice.
They are Slime in a Box.

This promo site is great. I go to them now before I do any online shopping. The coupons are current and worthwhile. Its updated all the time. No memberships or downloads required, Just a great serice.

Generally its hard to get really excited about an insurance company, car accidents, body work and premiums. These are not the things dreams are made of BUT since you must be insured, THIS IS THE COMPANY. Easy online access to everything, claims, our name it, great website.
Customer Care Superb on the phone and at the body shop. Easy in and out. Smooth car rentals. Courtesy pickups. For me, lowest price premiums I have found.
Someone in corporate is keeping the staff happy. It shows. Thanks Geico!

Hate home Depot.com. So many mistakes and calls, Our store, opposite Lowes is way to busy and you need 2 weeks in Hawaii after a visit. Lowes is empty and people are very nice.

Lowes often carries different brands than Home Depot. Which can be nice. Off line, in my neighborhood, they are opposite each other. You have to park out of state to get into Home Depot. You can park in front of the L at Lowes, no one is there, plenty of people to help, I have no idea why this is. They are just fine. Its always quicker and nicer to go to Lowes in my neighborhood.

They offer some nice things, but their prices are too high and thier common deals just never seem to actuall help or can be used that day or they get you with shipping costs based on purchase totals not weight. They give you a million codes and offers and yet nothing really qualifies for much or only one item will be marked down if you buy 3.
Dont shop online tired and read small print.

When they have a great deal it is fabulous BUT you have to pay attention to expiration dates and small print.
If you buy a beauty treatment, for example, for some unbelievable price, often, to really complete the treatment it requires many more visits at full price....so do your homework. As far as merchandise, great. Cust Svc is good

Walmart.com is a really easy site to maneuver They have MANY MANY HIGH END ITEMS NOT IN THE STORE AT LOW PRICES ONLINE ONLY. from other partners not in the stores that are high end designs at Walmart prices. SPEND 50.00 SHIPPING IS FREE. I buy all my heavy canned and bagged dog food there because I hate carrying that stuff home and into the house.
You can return anything to your local store, save receipts or email. Some items not available for shipping but many are.

I bought a set of lamps, porcelain, modern, gorgeous that would be over 250.00 anywhere for 39.00. It was from Better Homes and Gardens which partners with Walmart.com online only. Best prices for Lamp shades. Online they are Target!

This company was smart and innovative from the get go. I should have bought stock back then when I was thinking about it.
Smart menu operations, categories, reviews, excellent algorithm to tell you what you may like to watch based on your reviews of movies you review. Always review your movies, the service is just great for giving you more titles.

Site rarely goes down or buffers. .
A total bargain at 8/month.

They used to be aces, but now customer service is not that great, if there is a problem you can feel like you are being sent to the principal's office,

If they give you a lot of problems and you return stuff that arrived broken or incorrect, they then keep calling you to warn you that they are keeping an eye on you and you may be dropped from their prime membership. The free shipping is nice but the prices are usually higher than elsewhere.

I miss the Amazon before it got too big for its britches but now big enough to use $#*!es. It must be terrible to work there. It shows in their customer service

Cable companies are bottom feeders. We have all spoken and been cut off from customer service from India to Manila....but I have to say, BH is actually very good (In Florida) They have nice people, they show up asap, telephone and in house free tech support with IT people with personalities, local offices, pretty good continuous service (Phone, cable/internet) . They handle all 3 services so you are not talking to different companies.
No one has apparently told them that cable service is supposed to be a nightmare and that you should not call your cable provider if sharp objects are around...so shhhh keep this a secret!

***AVOID***WORST ONLINE STORE EVER.

TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE, HORRIBLE RETURN POLICY.

They sized their life preservers for dogs giving breeds...I had both of the breeds listed, both arrived too large, It was not their fault.

A cot bed that skidded across the porch when my 15lb dog tried to get on, told that is not a defect I can put a pad under the cot. NO REFUND..AND IT NEVER SAID THAT BEFORE I PAID.


Just getting this bad news took 4 emails and 6 calls.

This is a rinky dink little business. EVERYTHING they sell is on ebay and amazon or Overstock and cheaper.

They could not care less that I was unhappy.
Avoid Avoid Avoid AVOID!!!!

To Care.com
You have terrible ratings. Everyone complains about the same things, auto renewals, not being able to get out of memberships, felons arriving to care for your family or caregivers not getting jobs.

You write back with these corporate apologies that you insist are good practices and that we all don't understand your fine print but you do not listen to your customers complaints as a outline to change these annoying practices,. People hate auto renewals.

You are defending a sinking ship. No one is at all pleased or understanding of your apologies. They are vacant of logic and show no interest in changing policies to make customers happy.

When Care. com goes belly up soon, remember this at your next job.
