Zoolz

I recently downloaded the app GCloud from the play store seeking cloud storage for several thousand photos. GCloud was rated at 4.6 which is a very decent rating. They advertised up to 10gb free. I downloaded the app and as most apps do, they had an entire Page of premium services listed. One was listed as a one time fee of $29.99 tb storage, keyword here was "Lifetime". At that point I decided that that was entirely too good to pass up, and so I ordered it, Assuming, that it was an upgrade from the original 10gb, to the lifetime TB storge. ( I DO have a LOT of photos). Needless to say I was incorrect in my assumptions and the advertised Lifetime TB storge was from a sister company called Zoolz. Turn's out that the ad I read, and clicked on, took me to a different site and it was actually $29.99 for the FIRST year, and then an additional 69.00 every year after! I have been trying, for the past 6 days to be refunded due to misleading advertising. Oh, and as for GCLOUD? You don't actually get 10gb like it shows, you only get one. All in all it was a terrible experience

Tip for consumers: Be very aware of advertising regarding upgrading your product. It's not always what it seems

I have used Zedge now for the last 4 or 5 years. Pretty much ANY thing you want, you can find. I personally use the ringtones most often, switching them out randomly. I love having an individual ringtone for different groups of people so I typically know who is calling without having to look at the phone. Also some VERY Cool wallpapers

Tip for consumers: So many options to choose from, be prepared to spend some time looking

For a free channel, the choices are incredible. We are lucky enough to have a very good internet connection so tubitv runs very smoothly for us. Yes, there are some commercials. But really very few considering all of the great content available.
I highly recommend it.

Tip for consumers: It's great for Free!

For a monthly fee of $7.99, I get ENDLESS entertainment. Variety of different genres, binge watching, and original shows. Who could possibly ask for more?! Oh yeah, AND no commercials!
Never a problem, always there.

Hotels.com

Hotels.com

Booked a room in Phoenix through hotels.com.and I specifically asked for a smoking room. The guaranteed rate was for$115.00 per night, and the confirmation email that they sent me said the same thing. Total due was listed as $603.40. Imagine my shock and surprise when I checked in and was told that they had never offered smoking rooms, ever. So, I showed them my confirmation email and they did apologize but it was STILL non smoking. My next surprise was when I checked out. My room ended up costing me $760.00, instead of the quoted 603.00.
I have tried to speak with a real person and at least share my thoughts and opinions but I have been unable to reach anyone. No response to my email either. Stay AWAY from this company!

Tip for consumers: Go elsewhere!

Credit Karma

Credit Karma

I have used the website and have recently downloaded the app, I have found it to be quite useful. I am able to compare the big 2, TransUnion, and Equifax side By side. I discovered an error on my credit report from both agencies and started to file a dispute with both companies. Credit karma was very helpful with this challenge. TransUnion has resolved my dispute and corrected it, while Equifax did not allow me to go thru Credit karma to file the dispute, making me do it from their website instead. See my previous review of eq. I am STILL waiting for them to correct it. I find that the app is very useful for monitoring my credit score

Equifax

Equifax

12/5/18

I have been working on cleaning up past bad credit and found an error on my credit report. I contacted TransUnion and filed a dispute and within 15 days they had corrected the err. I then went to the Equifax website and followed all instructions to the letter. Since that day, I have received approximately 20 emails from Equifax stating that my dispute had been resolved and I could follow the link for their determination. The link never worked, it always said my info was wrong. After calling 4 times and being misdirected EACH time, I finally spoke with someone who then told me that I had never filed a dispute with them. Regardless of the confirmation numbers, and file/case numbers, he was adamant that there was no dispute filed. As of today, I am STILL waiting for response regarding the misinformation that they have on my credit report. I will be contacting their headquarters in the next few days in hope of finally getting this error corrected.

Tip for consumers: Always double check ANY thing that looks remotely suspect and contact them By PHONE

I stumbled across Wish through Facebook and went browsing. Originally I was stunned by the incredible low prices and so I order just a few things. It's probably 3 years later now and I am still buying random items monthly. Here's what you need to know, you really DO get what you pay for. And when they say If you can wait 2 weeks for delivery, they really mean 2 weeks or more. With that being said, I HAVE found some amazing things. I bought a pair of boots 2 years ago and they are just now starting to go south on me. Always check the sizing chart, it definitely makes a difference. I have requested and received a refund with no problem. All in all, I love shopping on Wish because you just never know what you might find.

Tip for consumers: You Get What You Pay For but you can find some great stuff

I've read the previous reviews and I truly have yet to have a bad experience. I downloaded the app from Google play store, added my ZIP code and pretty much, they took it from there. Most of our local clubs and venues are listed, I click the Buy Tickets option and I immediately have tickets. They store my tickets on the app and also email me scannable tickets. I have an obsession with our local blue's clubs and musicians and for me, this app is PERFECT

Quite by accident I happened to come across this website and after reading their mission statement, I was intrigued. As I was viewing different items, I came across memorial plaques honoring our fallen hero's and I found, quite by chance, a memorial bracelet for a fallen officer that I had actually known. Proceeds from sales go to memoralizing the hero in your life and is something that the family left behind, Will treasure forever. I shop with them often now and am always telling my friends.

Tip for consumers: Exceptional quality, customer service and a VERY good cause

I have bought multiple times from Grunt Style and EVERY single time I have been thrilled with the purchase, quality of the product and the fast shipping. On one occasion, I had to contact them directly and their response time was amazing. I highly recommend this site for the patriot in your life!

Tip for consumers: Perfect site for any patriot

I have always found GREAT buy's anytime I've shopped at any Ross, and I have been to several out of state as well. They always have something that fits me, which is rare, I am a size 0 or size 2. My only complaint that I have, is the clutter. Needs better organization and item's should be in any type of order. While I love to shop there, I always know to allow extra time, simply to find what I came for.

Tip for consumers: Give yourself a bit of time to find the perfect bargain
