Audible is like the Mafia, once you are in it you can never get out.
The recordings I tried were poor quality so I tried to cancel.
It was impossible to find how to unsubscribe online so I called customer service to cancel my subscription. Alas 2 months later I am still being charged!
I have written this review in the 46 minutes that I have spent so far on the phone trying to get a refund!


For example if you search for a "10w Led light bulb" you will find listings for as low as $1.00 but when you check the details the 10w Led bulb costs $4.25!


While Bunnings does have a huge range of hardware products not a cheap as they claim. You can easily find the same product cheaper, but because Bunnings repackages a lot of their products or has unique supplies they are technically not Identical so they dodge the lowest price claim.


I thought it was a free dating site, and sure you can join and spend an hour putting in all your personal details for free but to contact someone costs. First there is a subscription $30 per month, then a $25 joining fee, then a further $20+ per month so that others can contact you back etc, Then more charges to buy coins! (There are other better constructed sites like pof and OKCupid that really are free)
After all that there are insufficient search filters and it takes an extra click and wait to refresh to see profile details so it takes ages to sort through the unsuitable people who are too tall, too short, wrong religion etc.
There are insufficient options or guidelines for body type so effectively Slim = anything from Skinny to Average, Average = Overweight and curvy could mean anything from slim wasted with curves to obese.
Two days after joining I tried to pause my subscription which is a very complex process and doesn't actually pause your subscription, so it will still expire at the same time even if you are unable to use it and it is difficult to find how to stop the auto renewals, one auto renewal for the sub's and another for the additional features. You have to find and stop both or you will keep getting charged every month.
Positive reviews are probably by staff or paid reviewers.


This is a good website for anyone who would like to reduce stress, physical pain or improve their relationships.
Also ideal for counselors, psychologists, doctors and other professionals in the helping professions that want be more effective in assisting their clients.


I was fed up with the fake messages from fake profiles trying to sucker me into paying more, but the hardest part was trying to unsubscribe or delete my account.
It took 45 frustrating minutes to delete my account!
Even after unsubscribing I still received spam from them.
