Ebates, are your Big Fat Checks on hold?

Ebates claims their users can receive Big Fat Checks for purchases made through their website, and promise these “Big Fat Checks” come every three months if you have more than $5.01 available in your Ebates account from cash back purchases. They also claim you just find your store and click their coupon link and that’s it your on your way to your next Big Fat Check. Not!

In reality what long time customers have found is that not all their purchase credits arrive in their Ebates account, customer care is not there and their big fat check has been pushed out another three months and only Ebates knows why.

This well known site was great when it was not so well known. Now inquiries to missing tracking ticket purchases, and “Wheres my big fat payment” go unanswered because Ebates customer care doesn’t care anymore.

The best cash back site around is Fatwallet.com, sign up today and start receiving you cash back right away!

Colony Brands the Choose and Charge Scam

http://www.colonybrands.com/

If you have ever shopped through one of these Choose and Charge Catalog companies associated with Swiss Colony, now known as Colony Brands, and have a Choose and Charge account, consumer beware. There is no longer just a small finance charge for your purchases, they are now charging outrageous interest rates and the information is not provided in their monthly billing statement, they have also started charging $19 late fee‘s just like real credit cards. They provide no information on previous purchases or fee’s charged to your account on their statements, unless you the consumer request it. All in violation of the Consumer Protection Act

Long time customer accounts have gone over their normal minimum payment, even when they made purchases based on the sample information provided above, their minimum payment was still bound to increase even though they spent less then the “Stays the same” amount, so don’t buy it. They just want to suck you into making that purchase with their misinformation about your account leading you to believe your minimum payment will stay the same even if you make that purchase, but with all their new fee’s and unknown interest rates that’s not possible, shame on this company.

Even long time customers that have threatened not to shop with them anymore have received nothing but negative responses from their awful customer service representatives. Glad to know they care about the customers they are scamming!

Beware of these sites they are all related to Colony Brands:

Sam’s Club Plus Scam

 

SamsClub is scamming long time members out of more higher Membership fees by way of the Plus Membership. The cashier tries to up sell the higher price Plus Membership at the checkout, when the members regular Membership is about to expire for $12 dollars, then when the member goes to renew the total is $100, and they leave no option to remove this Plus Membership from your account without going to customer service.

Why is this Membership being forced on members at renewal time, we should have the option to choose what kind of Membership we interested in, and SamsClub should be ashamed.

It’s bad enough we really don’t get a full year out of our $40 memberships, now their forcing higher priced Memberships on us at checkout and renewal time. There are no fans of this SamsClub scam. If were not getting benefits with a $40 Membership, what are we getting, and why are we wasting are money. Do the math, and then do yourself a favor and shop at your local Walmart Super Center, no fees or up sell just savings.

The Extra Escrow Analysis

Every since Bank Of America Home Loans bought out Countrywide Mortgage, home owners have been subject to extra escrow charges and fees, their escrow payments are going up and up even when taxes & home owners insurance are going down.

Bank Of America Home Loans tried to increased a home owners escrow payments based on their analysis of a possible shortage, on an escrow account that had never been short. When the home owner added an extra $100 to their escrow to cover a tax fee so that their escrow payment did not increase, BOA took $47.00, and returned $53 to the home owner claiming an escrow overage, and then increased the monthly escrow payment to cover the $100 tax fee. Four months later they claim a possible shortage next tax payment, and now they want the money back from the home owner, and also an extra amount every month to cover any possible shortage. Now the home owners out $200 for a $100 fee.

Consumer Complaints & Reviews

BOA says home owners are not allowed to add extra to their escrow but yet they took the extra payment and there’s an option to add an extra escrow payment and they tried to require an extra payment based on their analysis of a possible shortage. Can we say INTEREST anyone?

Their escrow analysis are always high and then they claim overage and return money only to then claim shortage and then collect extra money. Their Home Loan escrow is just like being on a roller coaster ride that you can’t get off!

Eggies the un-credible un-eatable boiled egg.

Hey folks don’t waste your money on the Eggies stick to the old fashioned way to make boiled eggs, it takes a lot less time, there’s less clean up and it will save you money.

This product is more time consuming then the old fashioned way. The eggs take longer to prep and cook, then you have to clean the containers, and the finished product does not look as nice as a regular hard boiled egg. So keep your money and always review the product first before you buy.
