I had to close this credit card because I never used it. Having an unused credit card was dinging my credit score. It'll ding it a bit closing it but my score is so high it won't matter due to how good my credit score is. The ding in my score will be short lived but worth it in the long run.

I'm thrilled they finally added in a close my account button on their website. It use to be you had to call the 800#. Experiences were shaky at best and customer service wasn't all that great. Now that you can do most things online they get snooty and rude with clients that want someone else to do it for them.

Quality of their products have dropped over the years. Customer service is terrible in person or online. I've had horrid shipping experiences. I'm a gold card member and they just dropped each furniture piece at the door and ran. They were to send a shipping confirmation so it wouldn't sit on the door unattended. They did not do that. One piece sat at the door for 48 hours unattended. They did none of what they were supposed to do. Left a few scratches on the walls as they carried it reluctantly with negative attitude to room of choose. After ordering a three piece bed room set from them and having a horrible shipping experience I will never support JcPenny again.

In years gone by until about 2010 or so they use to be about as good as Macy's. They've really tanked since then. Quality has dropped and so too has customer service.

I am closing out my JcPenny credit card. I opened one temporarily because it was encouraged to do so by the sales rep. Later as I reviewed the fine print the card is set up to ding people on missed payments heavily. Beware users of the hidden fees and gimmicks. My credit score is in the 800 range so it won't hurt me by closing it out.

I love sim city games and have been playing since the 1980's. This recent game sim city build it is fun to play but damn it's ad heavy. The ads didn't use to be forced but now they are and game play is getting interrupted every few minutes or so. The game algorithms are set up to analyze the data you need and post it. However the more you advance the slower it is to collect those items. I've learned to keep one account below level 15 to collect these items then trade buy them to the higher level account. It's sub super slow to expand and it takes for ever to do so. It takes for ever to get sim cash and is set up against to player to give them any. It force encourages people to buy it though in reality with patience you need not spend a single penny on this game. The sims are super needy. Once you've saved up for one thing they're squabbling about another thing. Before you realize it you've lost a ton of your population to this or that. Due to the fact it takes a long time to save up coins for any thing it's best to keep your houses around 30 or below or you'll loose half your expanding city to this or that as stated earlier. The mayor's challenges are fun but set up for a city that is fully functioning around level 20 or so. I love sim city but it's been 15 years or so since sim city has released another version and I'm loosing interest in the game. Is the game a shadow of but it once was and I fear it may not survive much longer if they don't start releasing new sim city games.

I'm beginning to doubt cnn's honesty for it's articles. I've been browsing the different web feeds for news lately and noticed that one website will bring up the story. A few hours later it'll show up here. Some times they get the facts right other times they don't. Say for example one article floating around right now is a man in china or some where around there got tape worms in his brain from eating pork. Cnn translated it as "pot" now all the other websites are translating it as pot instead of pork. I see little errors like this all through cnn's stories. I am crossing them off my news feed list.

I've been trying Dave's Killer bread because it's highly rated by many people. I tried it and don't see how it's any different than other breads other than the fact it's like $6 a loaf instead of other brands that are $2-$4. While it's more expensive and probably healthier I've compared the ingredients to cheaper breads and they're pretty much on par. You can purchase controlled calorie count breads from other manufacturers and not have to spend so much. I think I'm switching back to my other 100 calorie bread option as their white bread literally falls apart in my hands as I eat it.

We've been taking some classes from them and have been enjoying their services. You go home with a nice planter that will last years. Products are good and they are very knowledgeable of their plants. If you enjoy do it your self projects and plants I would highly recommend them. Prices are a bit high and I would suggest to add up what you want as you browse so you're not shocked with a high bill. Quality is decent and customer service is excellent.

Having a complex hydraulic heating system we went through several plumbers before we found Perez plumbing. I would highly recommend them. Prices are reasonable. They're honest, reliable and reputable. When they do work they do it correctly the first time. They do NOT sell you cheap parts knowing they'll be back in a few months. Prices are reasonable and I would highly recommend them if you live in the area.

You get what you pay for. I was thinking long and hard what to write about and trust me you get what you pay for. Cheap products that may or may not fall apart outside of the packaging upon opening or reduced quantity count of the product so you're purchasing the product more frequently. Liquid hand soap that turns to water after three weeks. Packaging that lies about the product materials and so forth.

I hate to say it but the area I live in has two Dollar Trees in a racist neighborhood. Discrimination, racism call it what you want it's the same damn thing. Legally they can't refuse you service but the employees and the local clients sure give you the "You don't belong her look" and give you a hard time about being "out of character". I'd name races and such but then I'd have people bi*tching at me so let's keep it hr professional.

Customer service at most Dollar Trees is not all that good. One Dollar Tree I have an employee that refuses to look up as she walks and has run into me several times. Then runs away from me like I was at fault. The only individuals that acknowledge you are the cashiers other wise the employees down the isle ignore you. I've found most cashiers to lack good customer service. Well I don't blame them they earn minimum wage.

Each Dollar Tree I've been into is dirty, run down and in bad need of cleaning. Some of the older stores in my area I won't shop in because how dirty they've become over the years.

I only shop here on budget months or if I need to purchase items that are the same as at my local grocery store. Otherwise I try to support better stores.

While I do enjoy the option of cheap, I hate to say it but some of the customers that shop in my local dollar store must of skipped elementary school because a lot of them can't add 1+1 nor understand basic elementary school math questions. A lot of the customers at the dollar tree I chose to shop at (which I no longer support) are NOT smarter than a 6th grader. I have a true disability and these people should be ashamed at them selves. Pick up a book and start reading every book you can get your hands on. Do some thing good god there's a library right across the darn street. Don't be stupid. I grantee you life will be more challenging if you're stupid. Everyone has brain smarts you just have to open that door.

I've tried our local dsw shoe stores and the service resp have horrible customer service. The sales individual running the cash register, door greeter and if a customer requests assistance for product in the back they must do that too. I've purchased several products and haven't been too pleased with their products. Every shoe I've tried is uncomfortable.

We went there earlier this month (Nov 2019) and ended up abandoning the purchase. Some how another customer swapped the sizes and we ended up going back to find the right size only to find out there was only 1 shoe that size and no others. We asked if any other shop would have shoes nearby. Closest one was an hour away. We ended up not purchasing the shoes.

I wear a normal underwear size and the stores I shop at barely have any underwear in my size. I've tried about twenty different stores in my local area and zero stores sell my size. My size seems to be grown thin on the market as if they're trying to discontinue it. I've been resorted to purchasing it online and most stores mark it up 20%. When the product goes on sale none of the stores can keep up with supply and demand. I've started finding other brands.

For the longest time the mods were not active and anything went on this website. In the summer of 2019 some idiot decided to post a ton of porn on it and the mods didn't catch it for about 4-6 weeks. This caused them to loose about 80% of their site attendance. In the mean time the site was flooded with discrimination posts about this and that and which races did this and that. I understand Kroger sucks but the participants on this website apparently don't care about being politically correct. I've tried reporting people but the link to report them doesn't work. Kroger is aware that this website exists and has been for years but won't shut it down. I know they're not affiliated with Kroger but they are piggy backing on Kroger's name and that unfortunately makes them affiliated with Kroger.

I tried creating an account with an attached email but the mod got pissed off when I sent a professional post/email stating that they poorly maintained the site and now porn is being allowed on this website. Instead of professionally handling the situation they retaliated back with a bunch of f* you's and b*ch that and just went bonkers on me like I flipped a switch. I'm sorry but if you're that much of an ass hole in real life $#*! you!

I tried volunteering for this place several years ago. I couldn't even get a volunteer shift because they kept denying me the option to volunteer. Why I don't know? I kept getting bumped, shuffled around and moved at the last minute. This was about ten years ago. I recently tried applying again and it's a wonder how this place manages to survive. I went through the interview process, they unlocked my account but every time I try to sign into my account on their website I get account awaiting activation. I've called and sent emails but no one seems to care that another individual is interested in volunteering. I was sent the activation email link, clicked on it, set every thing up and still nothing. I'm beginning to have second doubts about this place. Well it's been three weeks of trying to get into this place. I would love to volunteer here. I was looking to fill in some time and to try to make some friends. Maybe gain some more life skills. It's been 4-6 weeks of trying to get in. At this rate I'm concerned about their organization and how well it's run. I've volunteered for several organizations over the years and I'm on their schedules within 2-3 weeks. I've been waiting two months and I shall move on. This place obviously isn't interested in one more volunteer. I'm afraid this review will cost them a lot more.

While I appreciate a recognition reward from my company the items that they offer my company are cheap junk that breaks after a few uses. All that hard work for a gift that is incredibly cheap and breaks after a few uses. Way to go Kroger you make me feel soo appreciated. If you don't believe me Google the gifts and start looking at the customer reviews. Most of these gifts are 2.5-3 stars at best. The first 5 year mile stone = $20-$30 items that are total garbage. The 10 yr mile stone $50--$60 where the items are slightly better rated but quality is just as bad as the first one. The 15+ maybe you'll get something that is actually usable and doesn't break after a few uses. I hear the 30 year prizes are wonderful quality. But they do that because of costs. How many employees actually make it past year 10? Not many.

While her quilt blocks are beautiful I found the instructions to be confusing. I tried to assemble one and found it quite challenging because she doesn't use traditional quilting techniques nor traditional block assembly. She uses odd methods of assembling and cutting strips of fabrics that are not economy friendly. Instead of saying make"x" number of flying geese blocks in various block sizes she has you slice and dice various squares, rectangles and triangles until you assemble it. I've done various angled blocks before and she uses an odd way to assemble them that is not economy friendly. I have tried a couple patterns of hers and felt like I over spent on the fabric. I would not deem her projects economy friendly. I severely over purchased the amount of fabric I needed for these projects and felt I could have saved $50-$100. I find my self having a quarter yard, half a yard or more of left over fabric. Now I like quilting but I hate having a scrap pile because I'll never touch it again. I'm probably one of the few quilters that refuse to have a scrap pile. I suggest going home reading the pattern, calculating how much you actually need then go purchase it.

After spending a month or two working on her patterns I am quite pleased with the finished results but I will probably never purchase another one of her patterns again. Two reasons: 1) confusing instructions 2) not economy friendly. While her patterns get very good reviews I would rate her patterns advanced intermediate skill levels. I do thank you for the fun time spend quilting but maybe not again.___________________________

I finally finished this block three months later. Beautiful yes but hell if I'll ever do one again. It is up to the challenger to decide weather or not to make one.

* Her math is not all that accurate. When reviewing her math skills I noticed she made simple calculation errors for basic multiplication problems. I found my self frequently cutting additional blocks because her math was not all that accurate.

* The zero waist flying geese block method would have been more economically friendly. And a lot easier to follow and understand. I had to throw out so much fabric because of the triangles you get when left over. The principle would have been the same in the long run. I could have made a whole baby blanket with how much I threw out.

*I am probably the only quilter out there that hates a scrap pile. I have been collecting a scrap pile for years and threw out a ton of it recently because none of it really clashed for a big enough project and I got tired of hanging onto it. If it's not a quarter yard or more I won't keep it. If it's less than that I toss it and boy did I toss out a lot of triangles, short strips and tiny pieces. If the blocks were cut economically I could of saved some money.

* Pattern is not economy cost effective. When I was finished I threw out a lot of unusable scraps and extra fabric that could have been avoided if she utilized the economy method of these blocks. I felt like I severely over spent on this project. Next time I buy one of these lovely booklets I am taking it home, reading it, calculating how much I truly need then going back to buy the fabric.

* She missed a couple instructions and a lot of instructions were confusing. I am an intermediate quilter and noticed she skipped several steps and anticipated that you sort of already knew the how to's and the basic techniques. She completely missed the steps to cut step for blocks "S" and "T" so when I come to the end to assemble the border I ran short on fabric.

I do enjoy these little patterns I find in quilt stores but buyer be ware: Read the instructions first, fine tune them, double check your measurements then buy the fabric. That's the only thing I wish I did differently. Otherwise the block pattern was beautiful upon completion.

I've been browsing through the dating websites only to realize all they want is your money. What happened to pay for one month time frame? You pay all your months at once and end up paying $200-$500 for a contract that's hit or miss for canceling. I've not had a good experience through online dating. Oh, well back to reality.

I'd love to sign up and unlock the blocked information but I don't have $300+ to unlock it all. They work it down to by the month but when you check out a monthly plan it's more like $300-$500 total. Just for 1-2 years time. Who has that type of money to blow on a website like this? What happened to pay for a three week time frame?

I'd love to meet people, start dating courting what ever it's called now but this website is not affordable to your average working Joe or Jane. I'd rather use my money for two more months of bills. I'll take the chances that I'll meet someone in reality like we use to do before the digital internet enslaved us.

I've been playing this game for a while. The whole objective of the game is wonder, wonder, wonder. More of the story unlocks and unfolds the further you advance into the game. It's focused on mostly animation and lacks a strong quick unfolding story line. Link is all grown up now no older than youth teenager. The story is told through flash backs and unlocking various tasks. I spent 60 hours trying to unlock the first section of the game and got quite frustrated with it due to being ko'd a lot and finding out the weapons break after a few hits. Once I passed that the game started to easily unfold and the rest of the story slowly started to unlock. I suggest following an online game walk through if you want to complete the game in a timely manner. The game it self doesn't really give you a whole lot of how too. Zelda games are generally pretty easy. First Zelda game where I'm periodically dying left and right because the blows are pretty much ko's with the weapons breaking after a few hits. While I enjoy getting lost into a mindless endeavor of video games I'm not really enjoying this new Zelda game. It appears they've done away with the complex dungeons and sub dungeons. Which is what I really enjoyed about the Zelda games and replaced them with preschool level play ground tasks. This Zelda game isn't for me but it was worth purchasing before Nintendo decides to lock it in the vault and discontinue it.

After about two weeks of playing this wondering game I'm done with it. The game is retartedly easy and I've never had a game where I've been ko'd so damn much. It's going in the closet to gain value. I'm so frustrated with being ko'd so much for being caught off guard I'm done with it. A lot of people like it because heck it's Zelda but I can't bring my self to finish this game. It's going in the damn closet.

I tried applying for a job on monster.com and it was to be a work from home data entry job. Turns out it sent me to this website with another name. Next thing I know my email and personal information was given to this place. This place is a scam trying to get personal information. I tried contacting them several times to delete the personal information but had no luck. Thank god I never gave them my personal phone number.

Thank you for your reply owner, but for the past three months immediately after I filed a submission for a job application for online data entry my phone started getting spammed with foreign telemarketers spamming my phone. My voice mail kept filling up with 30-40 second voice mails. I thought it was illegal to leave a voice mail for a telemarketer? I'm frustrated because your company sold my personal info and my phone is being filled up with this annoyance. If you can remove my number from your system I'll reconsider this review.

Good for a throw a way number but I wouldn't rate their services or products with high satisfaction. I purchased a one month phone plan and I can't even log back into my account. I created an account upon check out and it doesn't even recognize my number nor phone even though my service for a month is with them. I don't have high hopes with this company for a long run phone. The cheap phone I have doesn't even allow texting. I've gone through all the settings and still can't get texts to come through.

These phones are cheaply built and generally won't last more than a couple years before you need to replace it. I feel that the whole system of prepaid cheap phones is a scam. You'd be better off going to a phone store and getting a long term contract.

I only have Kaiser because my employer offers it. While it does cover a lot I have mixed reviews about it. I have found if you need to get things diagnosed they'll chase symptoms. I had to go to a chiropractor to figure out what was going on with my back. I've learned they push medicine like a sales gimmick. A lot of it is toxic and I refuse to take any of it. I have mixed reviews regarding Kaiser. I'd recommend them for emergencies not ongoing care.

I tried to sign up for the mental health and well being part of it due to a stressful time in my life and found if I wanted a physical appointment they were booked up three months out. Online chats were booked up 2-4 weeks out. That sort of defeats the purpose if you're trying to work through some stuff.
