Trusted Media Brands

Wonderful content but after eight years as a subscriber
I started to have delivery issues and we never moved once.

Three years ago it started but I was able to reach their processing
center in Iowa by phone and fix the problem.

The same issue a year later but managed to get service started
again. Then in the fall of 2018 it happened again, but the service agent said that
the magazine would restart in the 1st quarter of 2019. Liar.

I have not received a single issue this year, despite my payment
of $20.oo. I spoke to some man whom was a VP of advertising
in NYC and gave two telephone numbers and he said someone would
call and helf. Dat was over a month ago. Liar.

I had paid for a one year subscription but received only several issues.

This publication is owned by Trusted Media Brands. Trust my eye!!!

Once they have your money, this clown posse does not care if they fulfill
their obligations or not. They cut expenses by getting rid of their telephone
numbers to the service center in Harlen, Iowa.

As you can see, Trusted [Rusted] Media Brands operates behind a firewall
limiting contact to email, which more than likely finds its way to the spam file.

Please stay away from ALL of Trusted Media Brands magazines. You can not
believe a thing they say.

Memorial Impressions

Memorial Impressions

I wanted a picture of our parents, for their large up right cemetery stone.
One side is blank, unless one pays a princely sum to have the stone
etched with a image or letters.

Ceramic monument pictures are fabulous but can cost any where from
from $200.oo to $500.oo bucks !

Memorial Impressions offers products that are significantly lower in price.
It is NOT a ceramic product, nevertheless, they also guaranty against the
picture from fading. We purchased a 8" by 10" oval for the price of $140.oo.

They also warranty against chips, with a free replacement. The same as
with fading. If the picture is vandaled, they will replace for 50% of the original
cost.

They did a wonderful job in formatting the picture and providing three
different proofs.

Ms Carissa, was a delight to work with. With this company, you actual speak
with a human and they call you back. From start to finish, the order took
about eight days to be delivered. Installation was easy, with the exception
of centering an oval object.

The only improvement, would a border around the entire oval, to protect it
from a possible water intrusion and to give it a more stately appearance.
Nevertheless, it sure does dress up the blank side of the upright stone!

All in all, this was a very pleasant and satisfying shopping experience.

What is to like about tastyworks?

1] Some of the lowest stock commission rates on Wall Street [Chirack]
2] Good execution
3] Good phone support

So why only the two stars, you axe? It is their trading platform. It is the most
bizarre trading order platform I have ever witness.

When you login to the live quotes page, it will present you with their ads, along
with a long list of "community" traders. Rather than your pertinent account information,
the account holder is given advertising and social media forum!!

Simply controlling the use of ones account page, requires a long term effort in order to understand how it works. There is nothing simply about it and you are not given any other platform options.

The worst part is placing an order. Stock trades are themselves very confusing albeit easier than placing an option trade. Again, new users will have to be very careful because of the different ways to place an order could lead to an error.

If you think stock trades were convoluted, options trades for new users are nothing short of a nightmare. If you are use to common sense trading platforms, used by other major stock brokers, Tastyworks will leave you breathless. It will be helful, if the account holder has a gaming background.

WARNING: In order to trade options, it will require extensive use of their platform simply to place simple option orders !! Another confusing issue, is their frequent use of new trading terminology, which many traders are not familiar with.

I am willing to bet that in the future they will change their trading platform or
at least offer another simpler one. Only frequent traders will adjust to this game like
trading platform.

I am sure, I am not the only account holder whom has left this broker because of so much technical and Hollywood confusion.

I switched my stock trading account to E-Trade.

Their trading platform is good and their handling in opening the account was satisfactory. Then the problems started. Their trading website would go down all too frequently for me. Moreover, I had to call their customer service department three different times in order to get the credit for free trades and the cash bonus for opening a new account. It took over six months before they finally gave me credit and all of the free trades, which they had originally offered.

Their trade execution is nothing special.

I once received a service call from Utah and was not home and they did not even bother to leave a message.

Frankly speaking, I have little confidence in this firm to act professional and discharge their obligations. There were too many on going issues with this business to conduct a long term relationship. Their commission rates are low and competitive but their people skills are very poor.

I for one would pay higher commission rates and receive better customer service.

I gave them two stars only because their
pricing is inexpensive and I received a refund
after my second email to them.

They will give one year of access to their website
to download repair instruction - all for only $20.oo.

I needed to replace my radiator but it was not list in
the cooling section. I had to do addition searches on
the website to even find it. Additional, they stated they
had installation drawings for their repair steps but this
was not the case. All that was given was a series of
procedures for the repair. I did find some too small drawings
where they were promoting auto parts for third party
vendors. Furthermore, they did not list the proper tools
that would be needed to make a successful repair.

I called them and they called back only to let the phone
ring only once. Then it required two email to get a credit
on my plastic. Moreover, the annual charge will be reoccurring
if not cancelled on time.

Unless you have high repair skills, Repairsurge, will only provide
limited helf. This repair manual may work for a skilled mechanic
but in my opinion does not work well for a shade tree mechanic.

There are several better DIY Internet auto repair manual that you
can purchase. Yes, they cost about twice as much (for a 1 year subscription)
but they provide much more content and especially drawings to
visually understand the repair procedure. A Hanes manual (paperback) is a
better option than Repairsurge. I should add, unlike others they
did not even have a sample vehicle, to be able to see what they
are offering.

AVOID, they are not worth the time nor the money.

Charles Schwab & Co.

Charles Schwab & Co.

1/5/19

Charlie Schwab is not a choice for me, as after a few months I closed the account. Why? Having invested for close to 50 years they would not allow for me to purchase call or put options!! They would not even allow me to sell covered calls!

Their website has serious flaws. For weeks I kept getting the guide to Schwab introduction, no matter what I did. Each time I logged in there was that dialogue box, time and time again. After fixing the above mentioned item, next came the security dialogue box,requiring me to enter a text code from my dumb phone. Even after THREECALLS to their "tech" support, the issue was never fixed on a permanent bases.

Oh, I should also add, that Charlie's trading platform is really nothing special.

This email provider is fine for (text) only users.

Their interface has improved but still has issues.

There is no print symbol and when the dialog box
comes up it will not give the number of pages to be
printed. For those like me, whom do not print all
pages, this is a waste of paper and ink. Having to
guess which pages to print is bad.

Customers service, as other have said, is horrible.
I had a service issue and got only a standard and
unhelpful reply. The problem still exist.

The attachment option does not work very well, as it
requires many clicks to get to attach. In order to transfer
any pictures or images, they have to be downloaded.

If you back click, you will have to login in again. This
creates a lots of issues. There have also been issues
simply loging in, as they are either down or having server
issues.

Worse, if attachment are download to their website, USERS
CAN NOT REMOVE IT !! That right, it stays on their servers
forever. This creates security issues when emailing sensitive
material. NO ONE should use their email if receiving or
sending documents which should remain confidential.

If you like the option of a lot of fonts and sizes, Zoho email
is not for you.

They are also known as a spammer, which means when you
register on a new websites, your request may not been honored.
Also, I found too many of my emails winding up in the spam folder
which means extra work for user.

Frankly, they are ok, however, if you are a frequent email user
you can find much better email provides, with better interface
and richer options; with the ability to delete EVERYTHING.

But then if your wallet is full of Rupees, then you what to go
with this India based company. Currie not included !!

Blocurve medical instruments, are recommend by 11 out 10 dentists.

High quality products and all made in the USA!!! I purchased the all
metal scraper call Tongue Sweeper for about $20.00 delivered.

I wish they made a larger one, about 50% bigger. They could call it
The Big Mouth. Received item in about five days.

I would order from them again.

Call them and see if they answer their phone (s). Send them an email
and see if they reply in a reasonable time.

See if the BBB has a review(s) about them.

I do not do business with anyone located in Brooklyn, NYC,
especially if their "office" is in a apartment complex.

NOTHING SAID ABOUT RETURNS !!!!!

Their internet name is really stupid, unless you need
to know where to get off the freeway.

I would recommend driving past Exit 15.

I needed a cooking and track timer. I called this firm
and I was surprised to have a pleasant and knowledgeable
woman answer the phone!

She answered all of my questions. I received my order in
either two or three days. Very fast service. Good stock and
an excellent website.

The pricing is nothing special, as they had priced all three item
which I ordered, was what most others were charging.

Overall, I was a happy customer and would order from then again.

Shipping was built in the product price.

Now my wifey can use one of the track timers to see how long it
takes for me to finnish my honey-do-list.

Made a mistake ordering from this possible scam site. 11 days after placing order no delivery and no tracking information, I did a chargeback.

Their toll free phone number is just an advertising service for other vendors. The other phone number has been disconnected and they have no physical address.

The Alexa ranking is 15 million, so they are almost unknown.

No reply with their in house email !! This website is best to be avoided.

Zero trust rating, as far as I am concerned.

Stay away for your safety.

These people (Bob) is incapability of calling back. They are
not in the office and you must leave a message.

I called to make an appointment to meet at their
showroom, they (Bob) never called back, In fact, every time
I called I had to leave a message, with one exception.

If you need a monument do not waste your time with this
firm.

Showed up for an appointment at 3:30 and waited for 15 minutes
and no one from Liberty Tax Service came and opened the office.

According to the local property manager, it happened to a lady
just recently as well.

This store is completely worthless, which the exception of it being
housed upstairs of a Burger King. Perhaps between customers, BK
employees could do your taxes !

It appears that it is too taxing for them to come in and unlock their door.

I avoid most business from NYC, as it is the nation's center for scam arts.

If you do buy from the area or the state for that matter, please google the
address and do a google map check. If the physical address is a warehouse
or a house, you need to shop elsewhere.

It took Carwax five days to answer my email !!

My wife ordered the five pack, She did three vehicles
checks and was charged for five.

Two days later, still no response from customer disservice
to her email.

This company is Bad Company.

His test software really does not provide any

News reports about crimes and misdemeanors done to advance

and threats and violence.

You will read stories not advance by the MSM. If you do not
believe that there is a worldwide jihad against non-Muslames
and for that matter other Muslames, you are either ignorant
or a compulsive liar.
