The sales price, makes it almost worth it. Of the food choices we tried, only two were what I would consider good - maybe even really good. The others pretty much filled the void. And in saying "filled", I'm being generous. The portions probably satisfy the health industry requirements, but most the guys I know could easily eat two of these meals at one sitting. Plus, if you plan on receiving your meals when they are scheduled, you'll likely be disappointed. Our last box came a day late, and customer service never returned our calls or emails. Not knowing what was going on, we had to go grocery shopping. When the box did arrive, it arrived late in the day. The ice packs in the box were half thawed, and all the meals had condensation in them - which makes me think they sat on the delivery vehicle for quite awhile. Would I pay full price for these meals - absolutely not! Customer service - none responsive.

Tip for consumers: If you set your expectations low, you may like this service OK. Though I'm not convinced the value received is reflected in the full price. Sale price - maybe.

These are great devices! I have one in each of our vehicles. It is great at helping diagnose a problem and it has saved me several hundred dollars in diagnostic fees alone. I had a sensor go out on our Ford Focus. The dealership would have charged $198 just to diagnose the problem. The OEM part was less than $20 online, and there was a 'How-to' video on YouTube. It took me less than 10 minutes to change out the part.

That's only one incident. Using FIXD, I have successfully diagnosed and made four repairs on 3 different cars. I highly recommend it!!!

The other thing it does is it gives you a heads-up to what the problem may be. In one instance, the dealership tried to convince me the problem would require over $1,000 in repair costs. Using the information FIXD had provided me, I backed out of that situation, called up a local mechanic, explained the problem and got the repair done for $140 and some change.

Knowledge is power, and this little device helps provide you with more knowledge, so you won't be so easily snowballed!

Finally, my daughter lives several hours away. If she has a problem with her older vehicle, she can use FIXD to get a diagnosis which helps me, help her seek to the best solution.

It's a great investment, that'll pay dividends - you'll get your investment back!

I was shopping for an impact wrench, and up popped one of those foldable ladders. Something we were considering buying for my pa-n-law. I clicked on it, and it fit the bill, plus it was discounted from $149 to $89 - even better.

I added it to my cart, and proceeded to check out. Road block - I couldn't pick it up, it had to be delivered. I thought that was odd - I didn't even know they delivered, but OK.

In checking out, the request your phone number so they can nag you with offers, I gave 'em my landline (which I never use), and checked out.

I was delivered the next day - Great!

A week later, I checked my phone messages. Crap - Lowes had left a message verifying that I knew the delivery fee would be $59 bucks, for an $89 dollar item and to return their call if I didn't want it.

Then I thought I better check my bank account - they charged me a $94 dollar delivery fee!
Are you kidding me?!!

Keep in mind the store it came from is 5.2 miles away, or 12 minutes. That 12 minute delivery equates to an hourly rate of $470 bucks!

For any of the big-box stores who can't figure out why consumers are flocking to Amazon it's because of bullsh** like this. I will never, ever buy anything from Lowes again - never!

OK, WOW is no different than any other cable service provider - they know the shell game really well, so they don't really care once you're a customer. They are currently charging me $45 per month, while providing me a whopping 65mbps service, even though their third tier service is $29.99 for 100mbps! And for $49.99 per month I could have 500mbps! When I called to ask about our crappy service, their response was - you have a contract. I said, "So, you're encouraging me to switch service providers - there's nothing you can do?" Their response, "You have a contract. Thank you for trusting WOW." Keep in mind my contract ends in a month... Oh, and I have been with WOW for for over 25 years. They're so focused on the shell game, they place no value on existing cuatomers.

Never, ever - ever upload 'search.anysearchmanager.com' or 'anysearchmanager.com' as it is essentially a virus that you can't get rid of without 3rd party help. I accidentally uploaded it, when I uploaded another program, that this damned thing was attached to as an add-on. I absentmindedly was clicking through the upload process when I realized had I just clicked to upload this program. I couldn't stop it, and since then have been unsuccessful it removing it from my computer. I have followed their guidelines - which work only temporarily, and have found other steps to remove it, but have yet to succeed in getting rid of it. It keeps coming back!

I loved the product - I bought three before they were officially released. You plug them in, sync them with your phone and you're good to go. If there's a problem with your vehicle, you can run a scan and get a good idea of what the problem is. You can then either fix the problem yourself, or go to a mechanic having a pretty good idea what the problem is. However, be aware that you must have a newer smart phone to interact with the device. I have an older iPhone 4S, which is too old. I have had to use my wife's newer Samsung to connect with the devices. I believe iPhone 5 or later, ( iOS 10.3 or higher ) and Android smartphones ( 4.1 or higher ). Verify that before you buy, other that than, it's a great investment!

I ordered a couple of the 3d type shirts they offer on their site. The pictures of them were kinda cool, but to be honest, my expectations were low, as they are made in China.

I ordered:
1) Mens 3D Swirl Print Short Sleeve T-Shirt XL &
1) New Fashion Concave and Convex Lattice 3D Printed Men's Short Sleeve T-shirt XL

First there's no way they would fit anybody in the US who wears L or XL - I ordered XL large to be safe... They would probably fit a small - maybe.

The shirts themselves were made of some sort of semi-stretchy material, and the print designs were crappy - nothing like the photos, and definitely not something I'd wear.

I mean you get what you pay for, so there's that. I chalked it off as a bad decision, and put the shirts in the Goodwill. Maybe somebody has a small kid, who would think they were cool...???

Tip for consumers: My intent was to provide a heads-up for future shoppers, & not to secure a refund. I felt a refund was not warranted, as I had taken a chance & ordered the products knowing the quality could be 'iffy.' However, they did refund my costs in full, & approved of my donating the products rather than returning them. The refund was processed quickly. They also said they would be reviewing the quality of the products. Hopefully, they do and future customers will have a better experience.

I found these guys with an internet search, as I needed some background info on a potential client. they had some "deal" going where you could pay a minimum amount, but if you didn't cancel within a specific time you got hit with the full monthly fee. I think it was like 7 days or something. So, I signed up. Big mistake! I used the service, received pretty basic information. I cancelled the service within 24 hours. To my surprise, my account was billed 3 times to the tune of over $50 bucks! Avoid these guys, unless of course, you enjoy supporting the CEO's lavish life style...

Anybody been subjected to the changes at Hulu? The interface is more confusing and difficult to use than before, and advertisements - lots more advertisements, and for longer duration. Which is undoubtedly the cause of the "upgrade." They must think if they change up the interface enough, nobody will notice the increased advertising. I didn't see my bill decrease, though. Ugh! Hulu is definitely helping their competition. The new Hulu is absolutely horrible!
