Now Angie's List can have whatever requirements they want -- but it's pretty sneaky to list all these "options" at sign up, when in the end you are signing up "forever" no matter which option you choose -- even one month! Then it's up to you to write them, etc to "cancel" your membership. I oppose this type of business model in principle, and have bad experiences to back it up. The company drags out cancellation as much as possible, using as much "technical DQ's" as they can and meanwhile can keep charging you. YUCK
For this to come from a company that makes it's living solicitly your opinions of companies and services you use is the ultimate insult. I wish I could list this complaint ON Angie's List -- but this will have to do.
Waiting to hear whether they refund my money -- I've sent a complaint to both Paypal and Angie's List. Will update later.
But meanwhile -- don't PAY Angie's List, unless you're comfortable with signing up "indefinitely."
Language of agreement also says things like "Angie's List reserves the right to change payment amounts at any time" etc. It's a completely ONE-SIDED anti-consumer agreement -- which coming from a "consumer services advocacy" site is mind-blowing.
