Restaurant.com

5/21/19

I have used Restaurant.com for quite a few years. I have had pretty good results but I feel as if you really need to live in a larger city or near a larger city to make it worth the effort. (More restaurants/more opportunities) I have noticed that there are some restaurants listed in my area that have been closed for several years or more. That is why I have given restaurant.com 4 stars. The other reason has nothing to do with them but I have encountered restaurants that have no idea how to redeem certificates even though it is plainly written out on how to use them. (It's as simple as selecting "redeem.") Because of this, I wasted two out of three certificates for one restaurant on a single visit because the bartender did not know how to redeem them. I was told there is no way to get the incorrectly redeemed certificates back. Luckily, I had used a special offer for them and hadn't paid much.

It is my understanding that Envy Stylz is a small brick and mortar business in Texas that offers online ordering. I have ordered quite a few things from them and have had great luck each time.
They offer t-shirts, fun holiday clothing, jewelry, and footwear. The t-shirts and jewelry I have ordered have been high quality and well-priced.
Recently, they started offering a subscription box that is kind of like a monthly grab bag. For $30, you get one t-shirt and then 2 to 3 additional items. When you sign up, you provide your size and they do the rest. The first box I received contained a New Year's t-shirt, pop socket for my phone, lip balm keeper, and a pendant. I loved everything I received and look forward to this month's box. I signed up for a month-by-month subscription but think you can sign up for autoship.
This company never charges shipping and offers the sezzle payment plan. (They will break your total down into 4 equal payments.) I have found communication to be great with updates from order to delivery.

I applied for and received a Credit One credit card several years ago. I manage most accounts online, including making payments. Credit One doesn't allow making payments much in advance. I usually like to schedule a payment the same day I receive an e-mail with my new statement. With Credit One, you can't do that. If you make a payment, it gets attention immediately. Sometimes, that is fine. Sometimes, I want to pay at or around the due date. If I do that, I need to remember to get back online at that time. So far, so good.
My other issue is a little more important. I was out of town for an extended length of time and had my mail held until my return. When I returned, I had a ginormous sack of mail to go through. There was an envelope from Credit One. Sadly, since I receive paperless billing, I assumed that mailing was junk mail and set it aside. Later, when making a payment to my CO account, I noted an additional credit card tied to my account with payment due within a couple of days for membership fees.
I believe this is a deceptive and sneaky practice. Of course, tied to the account was an account protection service.
Overall, I have no huge issues with this credit card company. However, I do believe users need to be aware.

***Please note the edit at the end of this review.

I first discovered Cheeky's via a Facebook ad. The first and second experiences I had ordering from them were wonderful. They have a disclaimer on their ordering page that states they are a small company and that shipping can take awhile. In the first 2 cases, I had my order within 10 days . . . no problem.
Now to my third experience. I was out to lunch with friends and wore one of the items I'd ordered from Cheeky's. They asked me about it and in showing them the FB page, we saw a t-shirt we thought would be fun for each of us to wear to a casual event at our upcoming class reunion. Because our reunion was 6 weeks away, we felt we were ordering in plenty of time.
My friends gave me the $ and I placed the order. Within a day or so, I received notification that my order was processing. After 2 weeks, I still had not received a change in order status. It still stated the order was processing. After 3 weeks, I contacted the company through FB messenger. I received an answer stating I needed to contact someone via e-mail. I did that and was told my order would be shipped soon. After 4 weeks, the order status had still not changed. I again contacted the company and was told the order would be shipped on Friday of that week.
Meanwhile, I was doubting we'd receive the shirts in time for our event, so we ordered something else from a different company. Those shirts came in 4 days without expedited shipping.
After 5 weeks, I checked again and was told Cheeky's was in a small town, that they'd had a large volume of orders, and that their post office was really busy. The tone of this message wasn't the most positive. I really wanted to cancel the order as I was certain we weren't going to see these shirts. 5+ weeks to get an order in the mail is beyond excessive in 2018.
This long story ends positively. Our shirts came the day of our event. I'd happened to leave the festivities to come home and let the dogs out. Our shirts were in my mailbox.
While I love the products this company offers, do be aware that you may have to wait a long time to receive your order. 6 weeks from order to receipt is a bit much in my opinion. A simple percentage off my next order would have completely changed my opinion. No apology, no discount, nothing.

Edit - After submitting this review, I received an e-mail from Cheeky's saying they'd read my review. They stated that at the time of my order, new customer service people were being trained and that they may not have known how to handle my situation. Cheeky's has subsequently added a $15 credit to my account. Gotta love that.

I have been a CableOne customer for many years. While I'd like my services to be a little cheaper, I am really happy with the service I have received when I have had issues.
This past weekend, my area had an ice storm which caused a significant amount of tree limbs to fall. I'd been out running errands and then celebrating my birthday the day after our storm. It wasn't until about 11:30 pm when I noticed my cable was out. I checked my backyard and noticed that a large limb had knocked down my cable wire.
I called the number on the company website at that time, fully expecting to have to leave a message. I actually got to speak with someone at that time of night.
I was then even more surprised to learn someone would be out on a Sunday to fix the issue.
On Sunday, I received an automated call giving me a window of time a technician would arrive. At that point, I could confirm the time or choose another time. I confirmed.
The technician was here within the window stated. He'd remembered being here before for the same problem. I guess I do need to get that tree taken down. But that's another story. He was polite and pleasant throughout the process.
I received great customer service for this issue.

Thrive Market

Thrive Market

3/19/18

I purchased almond butter through Thrive Market back in 2016. It wasn't the best, so I gave it away to someone who said they liked it. I forgot about it. On 3/18/18, I received a notification from my credit card company's app that there was a charge for 59.95 to renew my Thrive membership. Of course, I'd forgotten all about the almond butter and wouldn't even have made the connection to Thrive if I had remembered since my purchase was 2 years ago. "Thrive Market? Where in the heck is that?" I thought to myself.
Also on 3/18/18, I received an e-mail informing me of my renewed membership. I attempted to use the chat link within the e-mail to get in touch with someone. Of course, that didn't work. Assuming it was due to it being Sunday, I waited until today, Monday, to call the company.
I stated I had no recollection of ever ordering from Thrive. That is when I was reminded of the almond butter ordered. I was told I was given free shipping at the time and that is why I am now paying for a membership. I know it's too late now but I suspect I was probably charged a membership last year as well. However, I received no notification from the credit card app at that time and also did not get an email. A company response to someone's review here states those e-mails often go to spam. Convenient.
I hate to even check to see if I was charged 59.95 last year. That amount of money could have purchased a lot of happy hour drinks. If I was charged, that was my fault for not noticing. Certainly I would've canceled at that time. I'd think it would be weird to the company that I hadn't ordered a single additional thing during all this time. And certainly I'd think I'd be getting e-mails regarding all the products they sell, right? Nothing, not a word, until yesterday.
I take full responsibility if indeed the rules were clearly stated. In general, I am leery about companies that have yearly membership fees, especially fees in excess of $50.00. Normally, I do not sign up for those services because I know it can be difficult to cancel.
When I spoke to someone today. I requested my membership be canceled. The service rep was pleasant and told me my charges would be reversed within 2 - 3 days. She did mention I had a credit of $45 on my account but because of these billing practices that seem just a little disingenuous, I do not want to have further dealings with the company.
Note- I think it is interesting that the reviews vary so much and that many reviewers have no other reviews. I noticed someone suggested that a person who writes a negative review must be hard to please. A check of my other reviews would show that is not the case at all.

Edit-Today, 3/24/18, I received notification that my credit card has been credited for 59.95. My story has a happy ending but I've made a note in my calendar to be sure to check for charges next March.

Mercari

Mercari

I have had some great experiences on Mercari and some not-so-great experiences. Mercari is a lot like ebay. You browse various sellers' merchandise, offer to buy paying the listed price, or often, you can make an offer and hope the seller accepts. You rate sellers after purchases and sellers rate buyers as well.
When you receive your item, you are supposed to "accept" it through the app or online. Once accepted, funds are released to the seller. If you wait too long to accept, funds are automatically released. More on that later.
As mentioned, I have had good experiences. Sellers in those cases shipped quickly and items were as described.
I have had 3 sellers not respond to questions and also sellers who I've purchased from and have not shipped items and who were nonresponsive when I asked about the purchases. Sellers have a set amount of time to ship. I think the window is 7 days. Once 7 days pass, buyers can cancel and get money back.
Nothing was really lost in those cases except for offers I'd received from Mercari. In each case, I was offered a $5 off coupon. I used them for those purchases that never materialized. Once gone, they are gone.
My other bad experience I guess wasn't really all that bad. I was due to receive something while on vacation. I planned for my neighbor to pick up my mail. The seller of my item rated me down because she said I was nonresponsive because I didn't indicate I'd received my item and hadn't rated her. I couldn't rate the item because I hadn't seen the item yet. I'd said I was going to be gone when the package arrived and that I couldn't explain how to do a rating with my elderly neighbor who doesn't have a smart phone or the internet. Kinda annoying. I love those 5-star ratings. I'd a matter of principle for me.
So so far, I have received great items as described. I have had several sellers drop off the face of the earth and never send what I purchased. I'm not out any money but did lose out on the value of a few special offers.
I will keep using this site. My good experiences outweigh the bad. Maybe I did't really need those other items any way. Wait, I kinda did.

I am somewhat of a phone case fanatic and like the variety I can find here vs. what my local Verizon store, Best Buy, or Target carries. Shipping has generally been fast. I have never had to return anything so I can't speak to that process. If you sign up for their e-mail list, you'll get special offers. They do not send very many e-mails; I appreciate that.

We have an Eddie Bauer store in our mall but I shop online in order to get tall sizing options. The website is easy to navigate and makes it easy to apply codes for special pricing. I can also link my EB Rewards number easily.
Some of my EB clothing goes out of style before it wears out. The quality is awesome. I am not sure but I think they still offer a limitless guarantee.
I have ordered many times and have never had a problem with the ordering process or product quality. I like that I can return online purchases to my local store.

Please call a local florist directly when you need flowers. You will receive quality service, fresh product, and will support those who likely live in your community vs. a company that has nothing invested in your town.
If there is a problem, you will have much better luck solving it if you can call and speak to a local person.

Love Your Melon

I like the concept of Love Your Melon. I believe they donate 50% of their proceeds to childhood cancer charities. Their products are high quality, trendy, and warm. I've only purchased beanies, not any of the clothing or other items.
They have hats in about every color imaginable, including some marketed for sports teams. I like that I can get a hat in Minnesota Vikings colors but without the Vikings logo or wording.
One of our local sporting good stores carries the beanies which run the same price as they cost through the website.
I recently ordered a hat on Saturday and received it Tuesday. But I am close. The company is located in Minnesota and I live in Iowa.
This company advertises special releases for various occasions. For example, 2 weeks ago, they released beanies in pink and red for Valentine's Day. They sold out quickly.
Order with confidence from this company.

I ordered from DT over the weekend and received my order today, 4 days later! I love that. I appreciate that shipping is free when over a certain amount. My item was packaged well and if I had to return it, doing so seems easy.
The quality of my purchase, a long down vest, is excellent, enough so that I have already ordered the same thing in another color.
I will be a repeat customer without a doubt.

Jane.com

Jane.com

9/14/17

I can't remember how I stumbled upon Jane.com. Probably Facebook. I'll admit I was drawn in by the prices. I'm still new to the site but from what I can figure out, Jane.com is made up of a variety of "stores." Items are posted for a specific length of time. You shop, order, pay, and hopefully receive your order.
I placed an order from 2 stores. My first item was described as an extra long tank top. It came fairly fast and it truly is extra long. I'm happy with my first item.
My 2nd order was one I was really excited to get. We are huge football fans and I ordered a football-themed t-shirt to have for NFL games. I wear team-related things to the games, of course, but wanted a generic football shirt to wear the day before or after games while we are in town. This second order took about 15 days to arrive. I'd incorrectly assumed shipping would be fast like most other companies. When I hadn't received my order after about 8 days, I contacted the store via e-mail. Apparently, the seller only ships on Mondays. (???) Because my order was placed on a Friday just as the sale ran out, I had to wait as they do not work weekends. (???) It's just as well. I can't wear the item anyway. I've lost weight but still ordered a 2X shirt just in case. The shirt I received might be a 2x in pre-teen sizes. I wear a size 12 in most other things and can't even pull the shirt over my head. While the price of the shirt was okay at 13.99, the shipping brought my total close to $20. This was like throwing $20 out the window as I am not seeing a place to request a refund. I guess I can make a dog shirt out of it.
I'd recommend being careful with this site. Ask questions of the sellers. Find out if the size charts are for actual human beings.

I am a huge fan of Dooney and Bourke and was happy to find this site. My city is fairly small and we only have one retailer who sells DB, and they have just a limited amount. So far, I've only ordered 2 bags from the site but have had good luck each time. My bags have been packaged well and I have been pleased with the pricing. I received a discount with my first order which was on top of an already discounted bag. That made me happy.
I have rated the site as 4 stars because when I contacted customer service, it took a long time for them to get back to me. The first time, I sent an email and was sent an automated response that my question had been received. The answer to my question took at least 4 days.

CarGurus

I will start out by saying I have not purchased a vehicle because of anything I've received from Car Gurus. I am only reporting about the experience I have had with the site itself.
I am on the lookout for a Subaru Baja and signed on with Car Gurus to help with the search. I get e-mailed updates every 10 days or so informing me of the availability of Bajas within a specified radius of my town.
A few months ago, I received a listing for the perfect Baja. It was the right color, had relatively low mileage, and was in excellent condition. I contacted the dealership and we discussed what might work for me to take a look. The town it was in was about 3 hours away, so I explained that due to my work schedule, I would have to drive over after 5:00 pm or wait until that weekend. The dealership asked for my VIN number and I made arrangements to take a look in 3 days. I was fairly sure I was leaving there with that Baja, so I paid to have my own vehicle detailed and made sure everything was in order for a purchase/trade in. The detailing required some arranging on my part as I had to find someone to follow me to the detail center, take me to work while my car was serviced, and then take me back after getting someone to cover for me for an hour.
On the day before I was set to leave, when I hadn't heard from the dealership, I called to confirm that I would be showing up the next day. I was told the Baja had been sold the day after my initial contact.
I am in no way upset the dealership sold the car. It's a business and I understand when someone has cash in hand, it's natural to go for the sale. I just wish I would have been contacted. The dealership we are talking about was a small town local dealership with just under 30 vehicles in stock. I am certain someone had time to call or text me.
This is not CarGurus' fault in any way. The salesperson I was dealing with apologized and all is well. I suppose I am just thankful I didn't make the trip there.
I've enjoyed the updated from CarGurus and will continue to receive them. I am now getting ready to add a few more vehicle makes/models to my search.

NFL Shop

NFL Shop

If I'd read these reviews before placing an order with nflshop.com, I may have looked elsewhere. However, for some reason I had pretty good luck.
The ordering process was easy and the coupon code I had actually worked. I placed my order for a jersey and received it about 14 days later. The jersey appears authentic, has stitched numbers and name plate, and just has a quality look and feel.
I am giving 4 stars because of shipping time. 14 days is a little excessive, I think. It wasn't a problem. I was not in a hurry and hadn't paid for expedited shipping. It's just that anything more than 10 days seems like a lot compared to many other companies.
I'd order from this company again.

I wish there had been reviews of this scam site before I placed my order. Here is my story.
Before I start, please note that sitejabber reviews for this company can also be found under Outdoorsonline.com and just outdoorsonline.
Also, check out the Better Business Bureau to read about their involvement with this company. It sounds as if the company was never authorized to sell Yeti products in the first place. Shocking. As of 2/25/17, there were close to 600 formal complaints/request for assistance.
Here's my story and it's pretty much the same as all others. I saw an ad on facebook for colored Yeti cups and should have known when the price was fairly low that it was too good to be true. However, I placed an order anyway on December 20, 2016. (A Yeti cup, a cup handle, some stainless steel straws) My account was charged immediately and I received order confirmation. I never expected to receive anything by Christmas; the order was a gift for myself & I figured I'd have a package when I got home from Christmas vacation. I even asked a neighbor to watch for a package. Christmas came and went. We celebrated the New Year. We watched each and every NFL Playoff game. It was in the middle of playoffs that I decided I ought to check my order status.
When it looked as if nothing had been happening with my order, I can't remember what it said when I checked but it was obvious the order was in limbo, I e-mailed the company and got the standard, "Someone will get back to you . . . eventually," canned response. When no one got back to me within a week, I e-mailed again. I also checked my order status. This time I noted it had changed to "processing." Again I received a canned response. 2 months later, I am still awaiting a reply.
The Super Bowl came and went and shortly after, I tried to do a live chat. Of course, the company was "experiencing a high volume of contacts." After reading the reviews here, I know why. It was all of you guys, right?
For some reason, I then remembered I'd signed up for fraud protection when I placed my order. It had been so long I'd forgotten about it. When I contacted that company, they said they could not help me because it had been longer than 30 days since my order. How convenient is that, right?
On Valentines Day, I tried to log into my account with camping and fishing outlet and guess what? They said my account and e-mail did not exist. Apparently, there is no customer with my e-mail address. This is humorous because I am still receiving e-mailed offers from this sham of a company.
My credit union is going to assist me in getting my $ back. Perhaps by St. Patrick's Day.
It's super annoying to have had to spend energy dealing with this. What's that saying? If something is too good to be true, it probably is. The sad thing is, I really want my blue 30 oz Yeti cup. I am sad and annoyed.
For a good laugh, look up Outdoors Online on facebook. Check out all the 5 star reviews. I was going to leave a comment but it appears as if the company has disabled that feature.
Addition to review - as of 3/1/17, I have received credit back for my purchase. This did not come from the company. My credit union took care of the charges.

My fellow size 11 girls know that it can be difficult to find our size in stores. I live in a town with a variety of options but most of those places admit they only get a few size 11's and often, those shoes are out the door quickly.
6pm has given me another option to find what I want at a reasonable price. Most recently, I purchased a pair of UGG boots and Nike walking shoes on clearance. And a real plus was that neither pair was made in some wonky colors that no one would ever purchase.
I've always had good luck - shipping has been fast, and when I had to make a return, it was credited promptly.
The company offers special deals from time to time. Sign up for e-mails if you want to hear them.

TeddyTheDog

TeddyTheDog

9/27/16

Teddy the Dog offers clothing and a few accessories catered to dog lovers. Many of the items utilize puns. For example, there was a shirt that said, "Orange is the New Bark" and another that had a dog wearing a football helmet and jersey and the inscription said, "Unnecessary Ruffness."
Lately, this company has been offering a different item each week. I believe they call the weekly items a part of a campaign. I get an email with a link to the site and can view the item from there. They did one when Prince died and have numerous products related to popular movies and TV Shows. Ordering through these weekly campaigns only lasts for a specified amount of time and then production occurs after they know product numbers.
TTD carries sweatshirts, a few baby-sized items, t-shirts, blankets, and dog items.
I have ordered from TTD several times and have always been happy with my purchases. Shipping is fast and products are packaged well - pawprint tissue and often a large dog-related sticker to be used as you wish. I gave them 4 stars because it is my opinion the prices are slightly high. A tank top is $28 + shipping. Yes, I get that it's about the uniqueness and I am willing to pay that for things I really want. I suppose they are really no more expensive than anywhere else. The quality is great and items have washed well. I don't mind paying for quality. Every time I wear one of my TTD shirts, someone says something. They are definitely funny.
I do not know if returns are accepted. I've never needed to return anything.

PuraVidaBracelets

PuraVidaBracelets

8/23/16

I first discovered Puravida through one of those annoying facebook ads. It was ironic to find them, though, because about a week prior, I'd been thinking I wanted a bracelet similar to one I'd purchased on a trip to California. Puravida is the brand name of that bracelet.
The website is easy to use and the products themselves are fun and well-priced, much better priced than the one I purchased in San Francisco for the exact same item.
Shipping was fast. I've ordered 3 times now and each shipment took less than a week.
This company prides itself in providing jobs to those who make the bracelets, people in Costa Rica.
You can get a percentage off your order for providing friends' e-mail addresses. They get a percentage off their order and you will get $10 off a future order.
You can also get freebies for posting and tagging on instagram.
