My real estate agent warned me that this site is not very accurate, so just be careful. However, it does give information about the prior sales for the home, which can be helpful!

Gilt

Gilt

I love the clothes and designers offered on gilt.com. And, it was made even better when they reduced the price of shipping, now offer you the option between a refund or store credit (in the past they only allowed store credit), and offer free returns. My biggest problem with the site is that most of the items I want, and particularly the sizes I want (small) get sold out within the first 10 mins of the sale starting. So, unless you have a job that allows you to sit at a computer and wait for the sale to immediately start, I rarely have the chance to get what I want. That said, I have had to return or get a refund for many items in the past, and they have excellent customer service and returns. No questions asked.

I wanted to addend my prior post:
1) You can no longer get refunded your money, you have to accept Gilt Credit. That kind of stinks. And, you still have to pay for return shipping (before if you accepted Credit you got returns for free).
2) They have MADE-UP DESIGNER BRANDS. They have created over 20 designer "labels" that are only sold at Gilt. And when they say it has a huge discount from the "retail price" - its totally made up because it is only sold at their website.

The only reason I still shop is because have now have all this store credit I need to use up first...

This is THE national organization of pediatrics - all reputable pediatricians are members. Good reliable information. Go to healthychildren.org for their patient-centered website.

SurveyMonkey

Yes there are better survey websites out there. But, what I like about surveymonkey is that 1) it has a very simple design and interface and 2) you can access a lot of its product for free. If you need fancier capabilities, you will need to pay, but so far I have been able to get away with just using the free options.

I was impressed by the innovative concept and the staff is nice. We used flight car twice now.

1) The first time was apparently without incident and we were told the car was not rented.

2) The second time, we were again returned the car and told it was not rented. However, when we returned home, we found a receipt for 7-11 and potato chips in the car. My fiancé reported this and it turns out it was rented! We never received any notification and certainly did not receive our payment for them using our car. The management was very apologetic and offered our payment, but it is still very concerning that this happened and we would have never known had we not reported it.

And, now in retrospect, after our first time, I did find an old decomposing fried chicken wing stuffed in the side door pocket - weird since I don't remember eating chicken wings in the car in the past year and certainly would not have stuffed it there for future consumption. I am very suspicious that it could have been rented out before...

I think my fiancé still is willing to use their service, but I think I would rather just pay for a taxi.

I should have known that the low prices were too good to be true. I bought two dresses for about $20 each. They looked great in the photos, but once I got them the material was cheap and the small (smallest size) looked huge on me. I ended up donating them to Good will - I couldn't even wear them once!

As everyone already knows, very reliable website with excellent variety of goods. Excellent return policy - I purchased the wrong InvisiShield and was able to return it with no questions asked even if the package was already opened! Also, amazon is even better with the PRIME (esp the 2 day shipping for free) service offered to college students for a year free!!

Apple

Apple

10/13/11

First off, I love apple products. In fact, I am using my iPad to type this very review. However, when I wrote to apple for help with a syncing problem with iTunes, I had possibly the worst customer service experience of my life. After submitting my question, I promptly got an automated response that my inquiry would be looked into soon. A week later I got another automated response asking me to rate my satisfaction with their service...when I never got an answer in the first place! I then got bounced around but 4 different people, each time no one had any understanding of my issue and would send me back a pre-scripted response (usually instructing me to download the latest version of iTunes), until I complained and they referred me to someone else. Overall, very frustrating. If they didn't make such great products I would give them a one star.

Match.com

Match.com

While I am sure that there are a lot of perverts and weirdos out there, I think if you use common sense (such as meeting for the first time in a public place, during the day, and letting someone else know where you are going to be), match.com can be a great place to meet new people. I have only interacted with genuine people on the site and never got "fake winks." For new members, search for a discount code before joining. I think I paid $15 a month for a 3 month subscription. I didn't meet anyone on the site, but I also encouraged my best friend to join and she is dating the person from the first date she went on! They are very cute together.

I always use this site when traveling, especially internationally. I have never had a bad experience with a well reviewed hotel or restaurant.

Rent The Runway

I had a dress come late, so it did not arrive in time for the event (UPS delay due to weather). The customer service was very sympathetic and they gave me a refund and a $100 credit for my next dress. Pretty good. The next time the I got two dresses, one looked nice and I used it, the other not so much. I would try it again in the future!

10/25/13: Update, I just saw that they are letting you try on 5 dresses for $50 to see which one is best. When you return the dresses, the $50 goes towards your next purchase. I haven't tried it yet, but pretty sweet!

Kobo Books

Your typical online bookstore for eReaders or iPad, similar to Amazon.com. When I got my iPad I got a coupons for 20% of my first purchase. I was very excited to use it, however when I went to make my purchase the site told me it couldn't be applied to that book - or many of the other current and popular books due to publisher restrictions. Very disappointing. Also, random, but after my purchase, I got a call from my credit card who suspected a fraudulent charge because the company is based on Canada.

MYHABIT

MYHABIT

Another one of those designer sale websites, but this time from Amazon. Because it is run by Amazon, the customer service is amazing. You can return most things (even a 1K wedding dress) for a flat rate of about $4. Shipping to you is free. They also refund you back to your credit card (Gilt only gives you credit back). Finally, I have noticed that their sales tend to run slightly cheaper than other sites, like Gilt (for the same exact items).

One last thing. Gilt has created these fake designer brands to make you think that you are getting huge savings, but you can't really compare because they don't exist outside of Gilt. I have never seen myhabit pull that kind of stunt.

You get 5 stars!

I haven't used this site to purchase a place, but I am very impressed with how quickly the information is updated when the house is sold. It's the first place to list the selling price and date.

THE best e-mail program. I like how it groups email chains together; how you can label emails, so the same e-mail can have multiple labels; the easy search function. Another great product by Google.

I use this mainly for airfares. It is usually my starting place to compare different airlines. The only down side is that it does not capture ALL airlines, most notably, Southwest does not come up. That's why it gets only 4 stars.

A site that offers various gifts for loved ones. Most of the items sold look very cute and possibly useful...but nothing I would actually want/need if I were buying something for myself. I ended up buying a fruit and nut basket for my father for Father's Day. The box came completely smashed and dented. When I wrote to customer service they prompted gave me a refund. Excellent customer service. Just not selling anything I would actually want...

Groupon

Groupon

2/23/15

Groupon started off as a site with great deals. Now the deals are not nearly as good (I think because companies have figured out and it is not a good deal on their end). For instance, I once saw a coupon for a dinner for two for $59 that was $1 off the regular price for $60. I think I would rather spend the extra $1 for the freedom to go when I want to go and have an expiration on my Groupon. There are some good finds from time to time...but now it often goes to my spam folder...

Another flash deal site. Less selection than gilt or myhabit, but the designer clothes seem to be more high end. Dress came as expected.

I wanted to buy my husband an Ostrich neck pillow (google it if you don't know what it is!). The stores did not have it, but they do online. Free shipping on > $50 is great. You can also return to a local store. The only downside is many of the coupons can only be redeemed in store - I always use the coupons for 20% off!
