has been in business for consumers now for over eleven years. We are
dedicated finding quality online products and services for consumers.
Why We Provide This Service
A problem with today's online shopping is that there are so many frauds, scams and misleading information it is hard to determine which website might be good, and which are bad. Unlike purchasing a product or service from a brick and mortar type vendor, if something goes wrong you have many options and sources to resolve the issue person in person. That problem is what scares most online shoppers away. And that is why we are here.
How Our Review Process Works
To do this we will pay for programs and services or if submitted by a particular website for our volunteers (consumers) to review. We will also review the program or service ourselves. We will get all the volunteer's feedback as well as our own. We will then determine a rating system for each reviewed program or service.
Rating The Programs or Services
We have the volunteers rate the program from one star (poor) to five stars (excellent). We will also rate the program in the same manner. We will take any notes made about the program or service and pass them along to you in a short review based on the volunteer's and our own input.
Our Dedication to Find The Best Options
We are dedicated to find the best sources and the best deals on the Web. Our company and volunteers research several companies to find the best options possible, doing extensive research on their products or services.
Our Research Criteria
We take into account price (if there is a cost), customer service/support, and whether or not the product or service is what the company promises on their selling pages. We will also take in to account the value of the program or service and if a refund is offered and most important honored.
Our Specialty Reviews
Although we review every possible type of website program or service, one of our specialties has been dealing with work-at-home websites; we are always searching for the best for our consumers. Work at home seems to gain the most attention because of it's popularity and all the scams on the Internet. We hope to end your search with a program you can feel confident in trying.
Our Consumer-Rated Review Guarantee
If we list a five-star site we stand 100% behind our company and volunteer's reviews. If there is any costs associated with any of the five-star sites and you pay for the program or service, we will guarantee your money back if not satisfied within 30 days of making payment. We may also assist you in the refund with the site as well.
This is our consumer to consumer promise!
Let Us Know Your Review
In addition to our volunteers and our own reviews, if for any reason products or service from a particular company doesn't live up to what they promise, please contact us so we may do our own investigation into the program or service. Unlike so many so-called review sites we actually list our contact information and will respond to your inquiries.
If you have a better product or service than we have listed, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to review the site. We are always open for suggestions to direct our research.
Beware of Fake Review Sites
Be careful of imitation consumer review websites, here are a few things to look for when looking through review sites:
1. Always ask the review site if they guarantee their reviews and be sure they have a way to be contacted in case you have questions on their reviews.
2. Many of these Web sites will not even provide a contact email address let alone a phone number.
3. Look out for review sites that list several programs they say they reviewed, but only list ONE that stands out above the rest. This usually means the review site is fooling you to join their own program.
4. Most of the fake review sites will be getting paid when you click on the link to the website they reviewed. Here is what to look for - The link you are clicking has an "affiliate" code or link in the web address URL. - When you have clicked and entered the site look at the website URL address in your web browser address bar, you will see somewhere in the link ("aff") ("affiliate") ("ID") or ("Hop"). This is a sign the review site is getting a commission off your sign up. These are known affiliate link codes.
Note: You will see with all of our reviews we direct you to the main site and do not use any affiliate linking.
