Angies List in Chicago, Illinois - It felt like I was talking to a used car salesman!!

My experience was the same as buying my first car. Angie's List was speaking to me as if I was an *** even though I was asking questions. Its amazing this company has a way for us (consumers) to throw companies under the bus but no one to express our frustration in regards to them. How convenient.. When I asked to speak to his boss he ( the Angie's List sales guy) didn't want to give me the name or contact at first but finally did after 10 min of arguing and made it clear that his boss was going to feel the same way as him and that I'm wasting my time. Scam artist!! Stay away from Angie's List! Also fyi Angie's List takes money from companies to clear their names and make these companies look like angels.

There will never be a truly legitimate review site on the internet and for anyone to think that a paid membership site like Angie's list will be any different is wrong. Today I joined Angie's List and after I paid my money I realized that I had only paid for...

there is a business on Angie's List that I have a judgement against for fraud. When I contacted them they said I had to join to file a complaint. I complained to them about this and they basically said too bad. My friend who notified me of the information is a...

I have subscribed to Angie's List for over a year. In that time, I have not found any good service providers on the list although I have used the list to look for landscape designers, appliance repair people, electricians, handymen and painters. All of the...

Why I cant search services beyond my primary zipcode? I thought part of my membership when I signed up, which was a selling point, was that I will be able to use angie's services for all my properties that I've own. Else it would be no point for me to sign up...

Angie\'s list is a scam, pure and simple. All you are doing is paying good money to read what a bunch of dopes living in your area think about various services. Purely subject...

My wife and I were just harassed at our home by a contractor I never even hired thanks to Angies List. I had lodged a complaint on Angies as the contractor strung us along and blew us off to make bigger money. Our job was urgent at the time. The contractor comes to our...

Angies just renewed my consumer membership automatically for $69. That seemed high so I went to their web site and found a page of subscription prices. For my area a 1 year bundled subscription was supposed to cost $29. I called and was told that renewals are often...

Angies List in Boulder, Colorado - Angie's List Billing Practices

Angie's list did two things. First, they added two services, classic car and health, to my account even thought I didn't ask for them. Second, they raised my price from $7.50/mth in September 2011 to $8.76/mth in October 2011 to $10.94/mth in November 2011. That's almost 46% in two months, with ABSOLUTELY NO WARNING OR EMAIL ANNOUNCEMENT. When I called and asked if the price had been raised or if this was a mistake, she told me that "yes, your charge is fluctuating". I said, flat out, answer yes or no...did the the price get raised. She said no. I asked why were the charges higher, and she said "i'm not going to be bullied into giving you the answer you want". At that point I asked for a supervisor. Supervisor was better. She said yes, they raised the price, but she would credit my card for the difference and keep it at $7.50. I asked her about the two services I didn't order, and the explanation was that when I signed up they were included, but they are now "unbundled" and now charged extra. I asked her to cancel those, and the price further reduced to less than $6. Again, none of this was communicated in the emails I get daily from Angie's List. Very consumer-unfriendly billing practices, almost verging on the deceptive. Ironic to say the least.
