Don't join Angie's List because once they have your credit card online, it's impossible to 1. Cancel the membership 2. Remove your credit card from the website. I tried to cancel the membership via online chat and while I think I did, the woman online gave me a hard...View full review
Angies List in Marigot, Saint Martin - Promises new customers does not deliver
Heres there angle. In my case I'm a dentist. They came to me and stated they were impressed with my reviews. Told me they needed another dentist to feature in my area and I was the perfect choice. You see there are hundreds of dentists on the list and you cannot easily be identified. So they move you up to the first page for a monthly few and based on the quality of your reviews you can expect to get 10-15 new patients a month. They tell you to be patient the first two to three months and after that you will see results. After 6 months we had 1 new patient. We asked to get out of the contract but only could buy it out for a lesser fee. We paid 295 dollars a month. I just found out another dentist friend was took for 3,000 by Angie's list with no new patients. And he received the distinguished service award. When Angie says you can't pay to belong to the list they have no problem selling you a listing at the top of the page. It stinks of the same thing. When you complain they are heartless. They should get the poorest customer service award. To beat it all the sales rep gave us a recommendation for a web designer that totally ripped us off for thousands of dollars. When I see Angie on TV I want to puke. It's all about making a lot of money nothing else.
I put my company info on Angie's List only to find out later that my former Internet stalker had started up again, sniffing around my business site, Googling my company name, emailing hate mail to my teachers and the entities that provide me with my professional...View full review

Angies List in Portland, Oregon - Difficulties with Angie's List Subscription Kills Its Value
I did not get value from Angie's List (AL). I seldom used it, and when I did once, a service provider did not give me the promised discount. I paid much more for it due to automatically recurring payments from my credit card. Cancelling was purposefully difficult. There was no button for it beside the FAQ link saying it was a type of contact. When I tried to write a cancellation message, I was automatically put through to a live chat saleswoman online who tried to keep me on. After twice requesting a cancellation of my subscription, I had to threaten to complain before she "allowed" me to stop being charged. I do not know whether AL unfairly profits from its recommendations as some believe. Assuming it's legitimate, I suggest staying on only when you need it and be prepared for a hassle when you cancel. Is the company a scam? Maybe not. But they sure weren't the value they hype themselves as.
We logged into the website to check out Angie's List after we moved into a new city/state. "Angie" sure makes it difficult for you to realize she CHARGES you for this service. Hmmm...that tells me that if she's willing to charge for her service, why not...View full review
I went to Angies list to find a carpet dealer to buy and install carpet. They were very nice, however, made a mistake on the day they were supposed to come and I had to change it for another day. They then measured my carpet for a cost. As it turned out they measure very incorrectly by 300 yards. I had a friend measure and then called in another company who measured the same as my friend. It saved me over $500.00 dollars and I learned my lesson. I also had a friend who is a contractor and he pays every month to advertise on Angies list. The only one that is making money is Angie!!!!!
I received an email today from Angie's List stating that my business had a new review. I went in to check the review and was dismayed to find a negative review. After looking at the name and addres of the person that posted the review it was clearly a mistake. ...View full review
I thought Angies list was different. That they would not be bribed by companies with large budgets to get in front of customers. It's worse than that because they do charge companies and they charge the homeowners too. They are working both sides of the fence. I...View full review
