Expedia booking price differs than the online price

I have had one of the worst online experiences in my short 68 years. I had to cancel part of my itinerary due to an illness. So I asked to change the first leg of my journey overseas from April to August this year. The round trip price on Expedia was 1474.90. However, the supervisor told me that the price online was not correct,that it was now 1774.74 plus an additional 300.00 for a change. I asked what was the listed price online if not correct? I was give a BS story and told that that was the price take it or leave it. I have done business with this firm for over 17 years. I will now find a new booking agency and bad mouth these folks and tell others to beware. Buy beware whenn booking online because the price listed is not always the roper price even if it is in black and white

This is one reason it is better to buy directly from the airline. Remember they are your agent in purchasing the ticket: You have asked Expedia to go to the airline and buy a ticket for you.

As a result there may be a lag between what their website shows and what the airline is now charging. Think about stocks. You go into your broker and xyz is $100 per share. You want a share, but by the time the broker is ready to place the order the stock is now$102 per share.

The principle is the same for Expedia. The price may have been what was on their website, but when their employee checks, it has changed.

Elite Tahoe Taxi - Way over priced taxi fare and the taxi was filty.

When going to South Lake Tahoe, one should try and not use the Taxi service called Lake Tahoe Taxi. It is over priced. His fares are more than double what the other companies charge per mile. The cab is also not clean. As a frequent tourist to this area. I have seen others be taken when they needed a ride anywhere within the Lake Tahoe area. All I can say is beware of this taxi company. It's rates are so out of line with the other taxi companies in the area it is a wonder this company stays in business.

Nuwave Oven - The last 2 years Nu Wave oven dome have developed severe cracking after 4 to 7 usages!

I have used a NuWave oven for the past 8 years. It is a great way to cook almost anything. My major beef is that there supplier who makes and provides the cooking dome have failed in quality control for customers. No warranty, major cracking from the power head where it attaches to the dome. Then multiple cracks around the circumference after 4 to 8 usages. Out of control increases in Shipping and handling fees making a replacement of a defective dome almost the same cost as a new unit? 49.95 plus 19.95. At the AAFES store for retired and active military the cost of a new unit is 119.95. They have since taken the product out of the BX stores around the country. This product was once an excellent item. Now it's not worth looking at for cooking, baking anything. I bought a Kitchen Aid convention oven with a solid guarantee for less money. Beware of Nu Wave advertising because they are selling a defective product they know will need a replacement dome within a few months. Then another in a few months, and another. No good for anyone except the folks that sell this product.

We have had our flavor wave for over 10 years and have had good luck with it. The dome did cloud up and did crack when it was to close to a french frier.

Yes it is hard to clean the dome. I purchased a new dome for $14 & a new grate for $12 , that I thoght was reasonable. The electronics failed once, because of moisture, but were revived with a hair drier.

We now tip the lid off as soon as we use it to prevent this. I must admit we don't use our flaver wave (nuwave) as much as most of you do?

TMobile - Longtime and Loyal customer of T-Mobile cellphone since 1992 til 22 Jan 2014 slammed for moving to AT&T

Talk about a scam and over charges for loyalty with a cell phone provider ! I am a retired US Army veteran would could not make calls from my home in Rio Vista with my new T-Mobile phone. No calls in or out without drive 1 and 1/2 miles from home. I cancelled my service after 20 years and was billed an unimaginable total of $518.85 !! No contract no worries with T-Mobile is absolute " BS ". There explanation those are the terms of your contract with T-Mobile for early termination. I use 100 minutes a month on 1000 minutes per month billing. NEVER GET INVOLVED WITH T-MOBILE FOR ANY REASON WHAT SO EVER> They will scam you just like I did. Guess there share price was not good enough and there executive bonuses needed some padding with customers changing service to other providers. No discount for military or retirees. Happier times with new provider. With my new service (AT&T) I get a veterans discount of 15% so a monthly bill of $ 60 is now just $ 51 plus tax. Plus unlimited minutes and texting anytime 24/7. Do your selves a service when thinking of a provider for cellular. DO NOT USE T-Mobile. A retired US Army veteran whom was loyal to a company for 20 years and given an explainable bill in the end. California customer advocates will get this coming bill in the mail. Actually I'll drive up to Sacramento and deliver it in person.
