I CRINGE every time I see that UPS is the currier when I buy something. Not only are they notoriously impossible to get ahold of via phone, email....etc, but they are notorious liars!! They tell you (IF by some miracle of God you do get someone on the phone) they cannot get ahold of their drivers while they are on the road.....BULLCRAP!! They have GPS on every truck, they BARELY even let the drivers take lunch or even pee, and they CAN get ahold of the drivers. I have known SEVERAL people who "worked" for UPS and they said their ex-employers were literal slavedrivers! All that aside, from a customers standpoint, UPS CAN get in touch with their drivers so don't let them B.S you. My main issue with this company is that the drivers are so overworked that their brains are jello. Point in case: I have left a HUGE sign on my front door (visible from over 20ft away) EVERYTIME I knew a delivery was "coming" and that sign says "UPS PLEASE KNOCK." Aaaaand every time they ignore the sign. I collect things (I'm not going to say exactly what, but let's just say I'm a history nut) expensive things! EVERYd@mn time they drop my stuff and run off before my package even hits the ground. COMPLETELY ignoring the enormous sign, and taking off like the hounds of hell are chasing them (or UPS supervisors.....same difference). The reason I am writing this review is because I have relentlessly called until I spoke with four different customer service "representatives" telling all four of them what I have just written for you, and I just had a "UPS special delivery" two days ago......guess what happened? Yup, you guessed it. The ol' drop & run by UPS's finest. Gigantic sign ignored and all. What was in my package? A $300 medieval item. On the day of delivery I have to run to my front door every 20mins ALL DAY to make sure I'm not a victim of the " Drop & Run" even though I am EVERY time. It only takes 3 seconds to knock on the door......is that so much to ask for? Thanks for NOTHING
UPS, as usual.
I've been an Amazon Prime member for 3 years. When I began handing $$$ over to Amazon it was $75/year and EVERYTHING THEY SOLD WAS COVERED if you were a Prime member. As the last 2 years flew by EVERYTHING has changed!! Now it's $99/year (SO not worth it anymore) and only CERTAIN things are covered by "Prime." I have been ordering things lately and instead of getting my items in two days, as per my $99/year membership, my orders are getting split up and I'm receiving "1" out of 4 items in 2 days.....as per my $99/year waste of $$$. Don't buy into it anymore people!! I am spending more and more time on EBay these days......at least I KNOW to expect scams and thieves on EBay. Amazon just hides it real good. The sad part is I have spent THOUSANDS $$$ on Amazon as a Prime member because it USED TO be so much of a time saver and I started to get spoiled receiving my items in 2 days, but now good luck finding items that AREN'T sold by 3rd party sellers (hence not bound by the 2day delivery promise you get as a "Prime Member"). I'm not repeating the same mistake for a fourth year in a row by giving them ANOTHER $99. I truthfully only kept it this year because my 6yr old autistic daughter watches her shows on Amazon Video, but I can get Roku and save $90....and not have that "gotta take a shower" dirty feeling for being ripped off AGAIN. Learn from my mistakes guys/gals, don't get suckered in!!
If you believe in "pet psychiatrists" or "dog whisperers" then Pet-not so-Smart is the store/website for you. If $45 chew toys or $28 mice filled with catnip are your thing then this store/website is for you. If you have respect for yourself and REALLY hate throwing away your hard earned money on an overpriced store/website then this is NOT the store for you. Stick with Amazon, they even deliver it to your house in two days. No more walking up and down aisles that smell like your kids dead hamsters cage. No more asking clueless employees who have degrees in Liberal Arts and no NOTHING about pets.....or smarts ;)
Sorry folks but I take issue with a store trying to coin themselves a "dollar" store when practically NOTHING (except candy at the register) is in fact......a dollar! Dollar Tree is an actual "dollar" store, not Dollar General. Sorry for that rant everyone, I just GATE false advertising.....as I'm sure we all do!!!
Let's face it folks, when you need ANYTHING for your home or apartment, Home Depot is the first store we think of. No one says "I need drywall and paint, I'll go to Subway!" I know......sarcastic, but that's just me Seriously though, Home Depot is the place to go for pretty much everything you could need (minus a pizza), however I only gave 4 stars because the higher-ups at Home Depot know this same truth about their store. Hence the prices could stand to be knocked down a few notches. Things are starting to get expensive guys/gals! Back me up here!
Overpriced and UNDER-quality items. Unrealistic sizes. Every 15yr old employee you can grab (who by the way have NO concept of what customer service IS) and every UNDER-qualified "manager" to complete the ridiculous picture you have painted for consumers......well done (sarcasm at its best)!!!!!
Toys "R" Us
Why would anyone with a brain in their head STILL go to this hell-hole of a store, with overpriced and subpar items, when you can shop on Amazon and get the better items for cheaper prices delivered to your day in two days time. Sorry Toys R Us, you're NOT for us!!
Your products are all rejects that Amazon doesn't want, AND you have the nerve to charge double the price when Amazon even saves me the trip to the store by delivering QUALITY items to my door in two days. Time to close up shop you worthless excuse for a retail store!
Are you aware that this is the MOST obese country in the world? Are you also aware that your clothing only has sizes that fit 13yr old girls and male models (NOT men)!! Come on, doesn't Gap public relations even review demographics? How does your store stay open when you sell clothes for "little people" in a country where the average weight, men AND women, is 200lbs and up? Close up shop and move to China! Plenty of little people there.
I don't want to have to sell a kidney, or my first born child o be able to afford Apple products! How about you guys bring the prices back down to earth where the rest of us humans live so that WE can afford them too?! I promise you, you would sell SO much more. It's literally just stupid how much your products cost.
The people of earth!!
Netflix go find a dictionary and look up the word VARIETY! Oh and if you do grace us foolish enough to waste $120/year on your service with a "new" movie/show, it's something that NO ONE wants to watch. Do yourselves a favor and Google "Top Ten Movies of 2016" and vwalah, there's something worth $120 a year!!!
$65 for a bra that would barely fit a stick figure.....puh-lease!! My wife is 5'1 and let's just say "top heavy." There isn't a single bra in the store that is even comfortable, nevermind fits my poor wife. If Victoria's Secret wants everyone to think that your ribs sticking out is "hot" they have another thing coming to them. This is the DECADE of the curvy, get over it Victoria's Secret. Oh and your perfume is God-awful!
Sword pioneer Paul Southren has truly outdone himself by providing the ONLY place on the internet that you can go for not only interviews, sword reviews, and even the SBG Sword Store, where swords of all kinds are at the lowest price anywhere. There is also the SBG Forum, where sword aficionados and new to sword collecting individuals can reach out to each other from across the globe for questions and answers, advice, or even private sales. Truly Mr. Southren has created a vast empire of sword "know-how" and availability to any who are looking to dip their feet into the deep end of the sword pool. Mr. Southren even makes his invaluable time available by answering questions directly to make all who come to SBG feel welcome. Whether you are looking for the perfect sword you always wished you could own, or are looking to buy THAT perfect sword for someone you love, Sword Buyers Guide is the place to go.....the one stop sword wonderland you've been searching for on an Internet full of cheap "knock-offs" and "sword-like-objects." Make the right choice, and make yourself (or that special someone) a memory that can be treasured for a lifetime.......or even passed down as a legacy to the next generation. Cheers!
I stumbled onto this website almost by accident (or fate, however you want to see it) a year ago and found that the treasure trove contained within was akin to the Holy Grail for all who collect, sell, or just REALLY like to cut stuff with swords of all kinds. The host, writer, editor, world traveler, sword guru extraordinare, Paul Southren is one of the kindest, most patient (to those like myself that started out with a million and one questions), honorable Gents to have spread his wings and traveled from the land down under to the mysterious and sometimes confusing land of "The Rising Sun" Japan. Whilst keeping an amazing leadership role (and wizened eye) on the Sword Buyers Guide website/forum, that links would-be sword enthusiasts from all walks of life with the most perfect of blades that fit like a glove....or gauntlet, he not only writes hard hitting and in-depth analysis (not to mention testing the limits and durability of these amazing "links to our past" to the breaking point) he welcomes fellow sword swingers to review and share their findings on this most time saving and invaluable Wonderland indeed. So whether you are a closet sword enthusiast, backyard samurai, or someone who loves to collect pieces of history, THIS website and its creator welcome you into this most honorable worldwide fraternal gathering of sword lovers! DO NOT FORGET to visit, peruse, and buy at phenomenally low prices (I assure you that you will NOT find them lower) from the SBG online store. Everything from custom katanas, to Viking swords so historically accurate you will swear you've fallen through a portal to the past. Please, do not miss out on the Wonderland Mr. Southren has created for the worlds enjoyment! Seriously, stop reading this and go
Here we go folks, another chapter in the "I almost got screwed trying to buy online AGAIN" book that I am apparently authoring without realizing it. This website, www.dailysale.com, is a horrendously run excuse for online sales. Sure the prices are SHOCKINGLY low, but that's because they intend for you never to attain that amazingly low price for a refurbished Apple IPad 2. Oh they'll take the $$$ out of your account faster than you can input the bloody credit card info. Point in case: my father-figure is trying to buy the above refurbished Apple IPad 2 for me.......he paid (in full) two weeks ago and has been playing email tag with their "customer service" ever since. He spoke to a "supervisor" who gave him a series of NON-answers and he STILL doesn't have the IPad 2. Well this is ME now. I ordered earrings and a ring as a surprise gift for my wife, cause I'm awesome like that! Well that was a week ago and no word, no change on my dailysale.com account that all customers have to set up. The status still said "in progress" as of Thursday (11/17/2016). So me being me, I wrote them a kindly worded "GET MY WIFES SURPRISE PRESENT TO ME NOW, OR ELSE! Now I hate to have to be like that cause I REALLY am a fun loving guy who would do anything for his wife and daughter, but try and screw me over and THAT guy suddenly becomes your worst nightmare. I informed them that I write reviews on this site for THOUSANDS of you awesome guys/gals who are nice, fun loving people who (like me) detest being screwed over. I also informed them that I would be informing the Better Business Bureau ( or BBB), who by the way is the SILVER BULLET to all scumbags who run scam sites like these, AND that I would write a harshly worded letter to the Attorney General in whatever state whoever runs this scam site operates out of. Wouldn't ya know it, Friday (11/18/2016) I get an email......believe it or not......from "customer service" "Dear Mr. Crazy Guy, sorry for the delay, we are shipping your order out to you today. Sorry for blah-blah excuses, excuses. WOW what a change of heart when they tick off the wrong person who happens to hold ALL the trump cards, and ALL the silver bullets. PLEASE PEOPLE, DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND $$$ WITH THESE JACKALS!!!!
Best selection, great in-stock items, cheaper than other "real world" stores + free 2-day shipping if you join Amazon Prime (believe me, I am PICKY and if I say spending $99/yr if you buy a lot online is worth it then it IS!!)!! Prime videos, Prime music, did I mention free 2-day shipping, and they even deliver groceries now! What's not to love??
Great idea for a store and it's actually a great place to shop when the "big name" stores wanna charge you $7.99 for a small container of hand soap.
Any sales or coupons can only be used by customers with an "Old Navy membership" henceforth anyone else walking into the store MUST pay full price while they sadly watch the customers roped into joining their little "membership club" enjoy 15% off this, or 18% off of that.....even their special members get the short end of the stick. Old Navy used to be a great store to get hoodies, sweatpants, pajamas (I even got a beautiful wool Pea Coat leftover from the winter stock for $80 less than retail price, that was 7 years ago). They don't care about selling quality items for affordable prices anymore. I got a pair of jeans a year ago and the crotch split while trying to pick my (at the time) 5yr old daughter up. Yes it was the right size, no my pants don't sag down to my knees.....the jeans were just THAT cheaply made. It looked like a blind man with 3 fingers on each hand had made the "jeans." Don't waste your time in this store anymore unless you want to overpay just to join a "special club."
This Next Millennium Card and the website attributed to it (Like the Emporium Scam, Fingerhut Scam....etc) are thieves like the previously mentioned above^^^ They target people with bad-to-no credit. It SOUNDS great. Shop on their "online store" and they "gift" you with $1000 credit line and access to big money brand name items, such as big screen TV's, furniture sets, expensive video game systems for your children. Sounds great right? WRONG! Orders are placed, money is certainly taken out of your bank account, but weeks later nothing arrives. You call "customer support" and every c.s agent doesn't speak/understand English (not being racist here, it's cold hard truth). They give you "non-answers" about your merchandise being back ordered, or it's almost into the "shipping phase" of your order. There are no "supervisors ever available or the person will tell you THEY are the supervisor. Then as time passes you start seeing "late charges" creep onto your bank statement and before you realize it your bank account is empty and your being whacked with overdraft charges by said bank, while you helplessly sit at home staring at a screen that is showing you the horror that is your reality.......you've been scammed......scammed hard. Avoid this and the above mentioned sites or this scene depicted above will be your reality!! Here is a link with some testimonials:
https://www.consumeraffairs.com/credit_cards/new_millennium.htm PLEASE AVOID THIS SITE AND THEIR "CREDIT CARD" at ALL COSTS!!
People with "not so good-to-bad" credit stay FAR way from this website. They say they can help you rebuild your credit and that you have access to over 100,000 so called "high end" products......DO NOT BELIEVE ANY OF IT!!! Read ALL the fine print (small letters at the bottom of the pages and "hidden links" that lead you to their REAL point in "helping" poor bad credit saps like us. PLEASE, if you don't believe me then Google the company (who by the way had another name for their business a few years back and had to close that company because people like you and I started finding out about all the hidden fees, shady contracts, and reports of people ending up in court over bills there was no way they could pay, enforced by the DEBT COLLECTORS WHO ARE THE REAL PUPPETMASTERS PULLING OUR STRINGS! No lies here guys/gals, look into it for yourselves before you give them your Social Security numbers and bank account numbers (which they will INSIST you hand over, along with your banks routing number, before you can even spend a "pre approved" dime. Please be careful and DOZ the research before it's too late!!
