I would stay away from this site - they are using fake HackerSafe and VeriSign badges. Real badges should like to real McAfee and VeriSign pages. Looks like they might be based in China.

Watch out for this site - it looks like they are using a fake VeriSign badge.

These guys are a work at home scam. Please stay away!

Here's a link to the FTC's info page on this stuff: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/invest/inv14.shtm

This site looks like a debt relief scam. Be careful!

Here's a recent article on these types of scams: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18155301/ns/business-consumer_news/

These sweepstakes sites, Publisher's Clearing House and others, really make me angry. They target the poor, under-educated and elderly, promising big cash prizes and playing on their hopes and dreams, when in reality all they are trying to do is sell magazine subscriptions. People would be better off keeping their money in a savings account, government savings bonds, gold, or anything else. The odds of winning the $10M prize are 505 million to 1. So that means if you played every day it would take you 1 million years to have even odds of winning.

Please stay away!

This is a known phishing site - please do not visit! (Google Chrome will alert you!)

Personally, I think UGGs are a little over-priced, but if you want to buy them this is the only real site to get information and make purchases (all the other sites sell fake or stolen uggs).

Same deal as other fake UGG sites... there is a great post about the only way to get real UGGs in Australia here:

Hey everyone, please steer clear from sites that offer to pay you for things like this. They are scams. Here is a link to the FTC's info page on work at home scams: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/invest/inv14.shtm

I'd be wary of this site - they charge a retainer and/or fee of $49-$150. If they were so good you'd think they would work entirely on commission. You're probably better off doing research online and trying to get the money back yourself.

My husband swears by this site and he is obsessed with home theater equipment. In fact, maybe a little too much so... anywhoo, he spends a lot of time on AVS forum and says it's the best because members get deals. I poke around a little too and there are a lot of helpful people who seem to know what they're talking about.

Have I mentioned how much I love Craigslist? I really do. I've used it for everything from hiring movers to buying and selling furniture, and it's always been a good experience. Partly, it may have to do with my location (Seattle) but Craigslist is really a great free service.

I've had one very good experience which is when I sold my car. I listed it on Craigslist (free of course), had 5 people see the car, received 3 offers, and ended up selling it to a very nice woman for slightly higher than the Blue Book value. If Craigslist exists in your area, I'm not sure why you would use any other site!

I've read that Ripoff Report has engaged in some shady business practices.

Here are some pieces about them on the news:

Here's their Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ripoff_Report

I would be very cautious of sites like this - work-at-home offers are often scams and are in fact too good to be true. Please read more on the Federal Trade Commission's website: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/invest/inv14.shtm

Search multiple search engines at once and help animals in need! - I realize Dogpile might just be another company with a silly sales gimmick, but I've totally fallen for this one. The service is a meta-search, which means you type in your search and Dogpile uses Google, Ask.com, etc to give you results. Not that interesting, but each time you search, a small amount of money is donated to animals in need (dog search in rescue)... yeah I know I'm a sucker, but I love dogs. <img title="Embarassed" src="/javascript/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-embarassed.

A poorly designed website with a lot of good gluten and celiac information - Celiac.com is a bad looking site. It's hard to find things, it doesn't look pretty, and there are too many ads. BUT, it does have a lot of really good information for people with Celiac Disease and they have a lot of information on gluten free foods. It also has a very good and active forum.

One of my favorite articles is on gluten free alcohols

Trader Joe's is the bestest supermarket in the world - Walking into a Trader Joe's just makes me happy. I have never ever felt that way in a Safeway. Why you ask? Well, firstly, everyone who works at and shops at my local Trader Joe's is friendly. People are helpful, polite and they smile at you. That goes a long way. But most importantly the food is good and I feel like I'm getting a good value (unlike at WholeFoods). And in particular I love Trader Joe's because I can't eat Gluten, and they have LOTS of gluten-free foods on their website! <img title="Smile" src="javascript/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.

Ameritrade is my favorite online brokerage - Their site is easy to use, trades are cheap ($10 base rate for equity trades), it's easy to get money in and out of my account, trading options is easy, they gave me a margin account, and they send me all my tax information. I've found Ameritrade somewhat easier to use than ETrade and Charles Schwab which are both more expensive.

Health info for your doggy, kitty or birdy... - I hate it when my dog Mr. Rumples is sick... he just looks so sad. But I'm often not sure if I should take him to the vet or I should just wait to see if he gets better. WebVet helps me to decide so Mr. Rumples can stay healthy and his mommy doesn't have to worry =)
