Reviewer's quote

...I wrote to customer service with no response. I will not be renewing my subscription when it expires in April..


...The phone number I found on-line (888-859-7838) was no longer in service. I will send an e-mail to try to resolve this matter but would prefer to talk to someone at Reminisce over the phone to have a two-way conversation..

Reviewer's quote

...I find speaking with a Customer Service Representative is always friendly, efficient and I have been satisfied they have addressed what I have called for. A lot of people have professed to have had bad experiences with the company, but I don't think they are justified..


...Contact Reminisce Customer Service directly at: (888) 859-7838..
