Why haven't I changed to a different bank. I'm almost sure I can even though I get government funds. They have some of the worst customer service reps. There have been times that I can't connect with them over the phone for 2 days. First on hold then after ten minutes they hang up. It isn't right that you can't talk to your bank when you've just been hacked and your money is steadily dwindling from your account by someone other than you. I did get my money back from them for that hacking, but
it took a while. I also can't figure out where my leftover money goes at the end of the month. My summary only shows the amount I receive monthly, and subtracted from that number are the debits. I asked where my money was going, that after 3.5 years I should have accumulated some cash, and to this there was no answer. He politely excused himself and hung up the phone. I'm thinking that they have been ripping me off for some time. If you are with this bank I would like to know if the same is happening to you.

I shop Zulily a lot. Really too much. They make it hard not to purchase items from them with their good prices. Where else can you get a set of sheets for 12.99, or a Quilt set for 19.99. I can't say enough good things about their prices. However it's a little different when it comes to their shipping times. I've waited only 4 days for some, and others waited a month and finally they ( according to their policy) must cancel the order and refund my money back onto my card. Kind of disappointing, but they will give you a voucher for credit for your troubles. Returns are no hassle for them, and canceling an order is as easy as can be. I love shopping Zulily.com. I'd recommend shopping there if you like good prices, and a multitude of different items to choose from. They have almost anything you could think of there. Edited.. I just read the other reviews of Zulily and had to write more. There are some things you buy there that are not returnable, therefore you need to read everything when shopping. If it's a non returnable item they will give you store credit instead of your money put back on your card. They don't have to, they choose to. They have always been very agreeable with me, and at times if they make a mistake on your order they usually send the correct item, and tell you can either donate or keep the item that isn't exactly as you had ordered. They don't want it back if it's under a certain price. It's too bad others haven't gotten the great customer service like I have received.

Torrid is one of my favorite places to shop online. It's good to be a member so that they send you notifications of their sales. I cannot afford to shop their regular prices, which is why I gave it a 4 star rating. But their sales are great. I have purchased items on clearance for 75% off or sometimes buy one clearance item get one free. I am a 57 yr old woman, but these clothes make me feel young and hip. Of course I may look ridiculous to some people, but I don't care what people think of me. I would definitely recommend Torrid to everyone, no matter what age you are. You will definitely be pleased with anything you purchase.

I've done quite a bit of shopping for prescription eyeglasses on a few different sites. Zenni I have to say is the worst. They don't have a virtual try on option where you can see what the glasses look like on you, and the wait time is excruciating. It took almost 3 weeks to get my glasses. They do say 2 - 3 weeks on their site, but I was hoping it would be the sooner of the two. My daughter ordered glasses a few days after mine but got hers before I did. I think they might have had a hard time manufacturing mine since I have bifocals. I received them in the mail today, and thankfully they look great, one problem however is that I can hardly see out of them. I know the prescription is correct since I just had my eyes checked and I received the ones from the eye doctor and they are fine. I can't imagine how long the exchange is going to take. I would not recommend purchasing glasses from ZenniOptical.com. And I definitely will not again.

eBay

I used to love shopping on Ebay. They do have better prices than Amazon, it's what you have to deal with to get those extra savings that have finally ended my shopping with them. I do bid on items now and then, as I did the other night. I won the item, and was very excited that I got such a good bargain. Ebay emails me and says "for my protection" they had to cancel this order. Seller no longer sells on Ebay. I called CS and get told the same. Asked if they could reimburse me somehow for my trouble, they say "no" However the same thing happened the next night, different buyer account and different seller. Same sort of item. They blame it on sellers, but the sellers are most likely Ebay. They just make as look as though it's someone else who is selling the merchandise.. If you ever read their "policies" they have rules for buyer beware. They have answers for exact questions I want to know. It must happen all the time. Then they state that if you write them reviews they can say its harassment and ban you from their site.
I am pretty sure they are the scammers. This is not the first time something fishy has happened while shopping on their site. I would suggest you be careful when purchasing from these shysters. You just never know what new policy they'll hit you with. I wish they would ban me.

Making money is key here, because that's all they are after. They don't care who they run down in the process of making their cash. You think they would have enough, but they don't. They have conned me out of a lot of money, not only buying their sub par products, but paying to fix them even when I have a warranty. My pc was 2 months old and broke down. I have spent a good amount of money trying to get it fixed. They say to call their tech department, but when you do they say you must pay this extra money for expert techs. Bull pucky. I paid. They did nothing. They guarantee me it would be repaired. Nothing!!! Not even a trip into the settings on my pc. Mind you, I apparently signed up for 1 year 15.99 a month. For what? NOTHING!!!. They make my blood boil. If anything or anybody could cause me a heart attack, they would be it. Please save your money and time, try to buy better products that won't break down so quick. And definitely do not give Tech Support any cash.

The one purchase I made from the company was split up into different sellers, some managed to arrive 4 weeks later and some 8 weeks later. When I got the last shipment it was something I hadn't even ordered. It was miniature toy guns. I had ordered home decor . I will not shop at Wish again. Not only the wrong products, and slow shipping speed, but they are selling crap.

Urban decay is a great place to shop. If you like using makeup it is one of the better brands. On UrbanDecay.com if you have joined their club you get free shipping every time and emails telling you when something goes on sale. And when you find a sale at Urban Decay make sure to grab as much as you can, because it is a bit pricey.

I have been a loyal customer for many years of Walmart.com, but it seems ever since they hooked up with Amazon they are not up to par. A lot of their prices are what other sellers are asking for their items. And they are way too high. The last 5 times I shopped their my debit card was declined, I had to phone them and do a complete redo of my shopping because it was no longer in the cart. My loyalty to them has faded. Come on Walmart old friend you can do better than that

Thred up is one store that I have to shop every day. They have so many items to choose from, clothing, handbags shoes etc. They are mostly named brand items that you would spend a lot more for new. Thred up is constantly putting new things on line to cho0se from. Easy checkout and to top it off they have your items packaged in a box with cute polka dot tissue paper. Check the store out. You won't be disappointed. I never have been

You've got to shop at Swap. They have brand name clothing with awesome prices. I've had nothing but positive experiences shopping with them. Easy checkout, fast shipping. So if you like bargains you should check Swap.com out.

The thing I love most about it is the fact that I can not overdraft so if I try to spend to much...
