Carl’s Jr. Drive Thru Feedback (Part 1 of 2)

So, I was eating a breakfast burrito when a bunch of salsa juice leaked all over my clothes before heading to work. Out of what I call 'consumer rage' (which I found myself guilty of), I wrote the below to Carl's Jr. When I ask for no cheese, that doesn't mean I want extra chopped tomatoes added

Plastic Shards In My Del Taco Spicy Chicken Burrito

Here's a copy and paste of feedback comments that I just sent to Del Taco. Paid 6 bucks for a Meal #12. The spicy chicken burrito had these orange translucent bits in them. I figured after the first bite, they would be gone. Nope... the 2nd and 3rd bites into the burrito still had these hard...

Can I Get More Ice With My Ice?

I'm a big fan of McDonald's iced coffee drink. However, it really sucks when I find out when two-thirds of my large iced coffee is filled with ice. This especially blows after a long trail run in the hills when you're jonesing for a cold beverage. Come on McDonald's. Get it together here!

Lifestyle Solutions Customer Service Failure

It appears that my month long relationship with the Customer Service department at Lifestyle Solutions has finally come to end. Sadly, after an exchange of 20 emails, I was unable to procure a set of washers to accompany the ‘replacement’ nuts and bolts that I had pieced together from...

PayPal Sucks

I recently made a purchase for DVD burning software at nero.com with PayPal. Upon use of the product I found out that the software did not work as advertised and wanted a full refund. After numerous attempts were made with Nero to obtain a refund with no success, I decided to dispute the charge...

Nero BackItUp & Burn

Nero BackItUp & Burn does not support the burning of files larger than 2 gigabytes even though their website states that it supports the UDF format. When I contacted Nero support to let them know I was getting an error when I was backing up large files, they gave me the run-around and stated that...

Lifestyle Solutions Customer Service is Nonexistent

I purchased this great looking pillow-top euro lounger (by Lifestyle Solutions) at the local Costco this weekend. Upon assembly, I noticed that the parts and hardware kit was not included with the product packaging. Optimistically, I flipped over the box inside and out over-and-over, hoping that...

Roku SD Player Review

The Roku SD Player (formerly known as the Roku Digital Video Player) is a great little device that provides an inexpensive way to stream your Netflix movies. The slim-box design, small footprint, HDMI and component video hookups scored major points with the techie side of me. Unfortunately, I...

The Best Way To Remove Caulk From Your Bathtub

The best way to remove caulk from around your bathtub is to use an inexpensive caulk scraper made by a company named Komax. This tool is so great because it actually works (due to its pointed V-shaped edge which helps lift and scrape caulk without damaging your bathtub.) I actually stumbled across

GoDaddy Customer Service

I just got off the phone with a GoDaddy customer service rep to determine whether I could get a refund for email services that I ordered a couple months ago and canceled the following day. After describing my situation, the GoDaddy rep was able to get a refund issued. Nothing makes...

Terro Liquid Ant Bait Stations Review

I had a major ant problem in my home until I stopped by my local Lowe's and picked up a box of Terro's Liquid Ant Bait Stations. This product was well recommended by my parents after they spotted one of these traps attracting a large trail of ants from the sidewalk to the front of a...

Eureka Boss Smart Vac GZ4870 Review

The upright Eureka Boss Smart Vac GZ4870 is an affordable powerhouse that captures dust and debris with ease. In addition to its strong vacuum power (which is its main selling point), I'm a big fan of the extension hose and brush which I used to suck up built up dust on my floor baseboards as well

Campbell Hausfeld 1805 Electric Pressure Washer Review

I'm currently in the process of cleaning my garage floor, and after many failed attempts to remove stubborn stains with a hose, brush, and Simple Green all-purpose cleaner, I decided that I needed the help of a pressure washer. Rather than forking out 50 bucks a day for rental, I decided to buy...

JetBlue Travel Insurance Provided by Access America

JetBlue.com does not make available the list the requirements and conditions when filing a claim with Access America (the provider of travel insurance sold on JetBlue.com). This is mostly likely because; if you actually read the conditions for filing a claim, you'll find out that there'll be no...

Always a Good Deal on Paint Rollers at Home Depot

Home Depot sells the below pictured set of paint rollers, brush, and tray for about 10 bucks. If purchased individually, this set of tools would cost you close to 25 bucks. Typically, I only use Sherwin Williams roller covers when painting rooms, but after having painted a couple rooms, I can...

Easy Way To Rearrange Furniture In Your Home

EZ Moves Furniture Slides is a fantastic product that helps you move furniture yourself. No longer must you rely on flaky friends, crazed family members, or crabby co-workers to help you move or rearrange furniture! I stumbled across this product at my local Sherwin Williams and figured what...

Dyson DC33 Vacuum Review

This last weekend I was lucky enough to score a Dyson DC33 for around 230 bucks at a local retailer. I was pretty thrilled to use this vacuum, especially since I would finally be able to see if Dyson's marketing claims are indeed real, or just a bunch of fluff. After vacuuming the downstairs of...

Creative Gigaworks T20 Series II Review

Great speakers. Been through multiple different PC speakers, old school speakers where all sounds coming from a single module fits my taste the best. After all, when a person speaks you shouldn't expect deeper voice from his foot and the high pitch from his mouth right? Now get back to this...

Tile Expo Anaheim Review

This is why you should say away from Tile Expo: - Product was not delivered on time - Rather than being notified via phone that the product was not going to be delivered on time, I wasted a portion of my afternoon to find this out. - Tile Expo ordered the wrong product. When told that the...

Poor Battery life of Garmin Nuvi 650

I bought a Garmin Nuvi 650. After using it for a year, I found that the battery is no longer working on its own. I have to plug in the power charger every time I want to use it otherwise it just shuts off. I'm planning to contact the manufacture and ask for a trade-in.

Beats By Dr. Dre

Want headphones that you can't use without batteries? Get yourself some Beats. Not! The headphones looks and feels great and produces some nice sounds but the serious flaw above coupled with the constant changing of batteries just killed this user's experience.

Sherwin Williams SuperPaint

My local Sherwin Williams tells me that SuperPaint rolls on easier than their Duration line, but based my experience with both paints, no paint rolls on easier than the other. In fact, both paints (like all paints) are a pain to roll evenly without streaking. I actually chose SuperPaint because I

Bank of America Fees

Ugh...I just got nailed by Bank of America for 2 months of failing to meet a minimum balance for my checking account. Not sure why they couldn't just waive 2 months of fees for a customer with a pretty good sized savings account. Rather than just refund my 20 dollars, they mailed me 2 brochures

Dick's Sporting Goods High Prices and Slow Lines

Dick's has to be the most overpriced sporting goods store I've ever been to. On top of that, they have the slowing lines to boot.

Costco Membership Renewal

My Costco membership expired, so I purchased a new membership through a 3rd party web site that also included some free coupons. I went to Costco and handed them the membership voucher, and they said they would not accept it because I am already a member. I explained that I already spoke to the...

If you do not want to spend too much money for a dress to a formal event and still want to look stunning for the event, I would suggest renting a dress via www.renttherunway.com. I recently rented a dress at Larock Cocktail Hour Dress via www.renttherunway.com. This dress is gorgeous and it...

Amazon Bonus Offer

I ordered a Xbox 360 with Kinnect bundle from Amazon, 5 days later there was a "bonus" offer of 20 dollars towards other Amazon goods for buying the same exact bundle. I had not even opened the box to the item they sent me. I called Amazon in hopes they could issue me that "bonus" deal over the...

Buying Travertine at Home Depot

The good thing about buying tile or Travertine at Home Depot is that they gladly return it, this is in contrast to tile row that says to bad if you do not like it your stuck with it now. If you want a decent experience buying stone or tile go to Home Dept.

DAP Pro Caulk Tool Kit

DAP Pro Caulk Packaging Don't be a sucker like me and purchase the DAP Pro Caulk Tool Kit because you saw it advertised on television. The caulk removal tool included in this tool kit is pretty much worthless because it's flimsy and lacks a sharp edge. When using this product, I had no success of even lifting up any...

Bank of America Minimum Balance Fees in California

I was charged a 20 dollar fee for failing to meet a minimum balance for one of my Bank of America accounts. Rather than waive this fee and allow me to transfer X amount of dollars from my other account, I was mailed a couple of pamphlets describing their account terms. Curious to know if there...

Walmart Supermarket Ridiculous wait time for checkout.

I was shopping at a Walmart Superstore the day after Christmas and it was so ridiculous that I had to wait almost 1 and half hour for checkout. I understand that usually the day after holiday is hectic and wait time is longer. I recall this particular store has over 20 cashiers but only 8 were...

Tillys.com Shipping Could be Improved

I kinda wish Tillys.com packaged their products in individual poly bags, or at least wrapped everything with tissue paper. What's the deal with just throwing everything into a box as is? Heck, would it be that hard to get a plastic bag from the local Ralphs so my shirts don't smell like...

Just Mango (Trader Joe's) Made in ...

The Just Mango (unsweetened) at Trader Joe's is one of my favorite dried food snacks because, simply, its just freakin good, dried delicious mangoes! So, I nor my family found it nice when Trader Joe's swapped the ones made in Mexico for the ones made in Colombia. WTF!? Why you say? Simply,...

Power Toyota (Irvine, CA) discount for car repairs

Love my Toyota Corolla, but ever since we got it, we knew it had some sort of issue with the power windows on the driver side and all the mechanics we brought it too could never quite find the problem. Toyota, finally, issued a recall that addressed the rattling noise problem and we made the...

AMC Stubs Review

The AMC Stubs membership is a paid for program that provides its members benefits in the form of upgrades on fountain drinks and popcorn. A 10 dollar reward is issued for every 100 dollars spent and can be applied towards the cost of food and drinks. The AMC Stubs program is not for everybody. As a

Ashley Furniture Homestore Strong Odor

I recently purchased a bedroom set from the Ashley Furniture Homestore in Fountain Valley, CA. However, when I received the actual bedroom set, the smell of the wood stain was extremely strong. It took about 4-6 weeks for the smell to disappear, and I'm sure that breathing in those fumes wasn't...

J&R Product Warranty

I recently paid 19.99 for a 2 year warranty from J&R.com, and during the registration process I noticed that the warranty starts from the date of purchase. Since the product I purchased comes with a one year warranty, purchasing a two year warranty is equivalent to getting a one year extended...

AppleCare Apple really doesn't Care

I went to the apple store at Victoria Gardens in California. It was quite crowded, but the techs were very helpful and extremely knowledgeable. However, when I purchased my iPhone 4, the Apple tech also included the $60 AppleCare without my knowledge. Although AppleCare is a good product for a...

Gap.com is hands down the best place to shop

Gap.com is hands down the best place to shop EVER. You have your selection of 5 Gap brands (Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Piperlime, and Athleta) to shop at yet you still have only ONE checkout process to go through and ONE shipping charge. Especially after Gap's addition of Piperlime's apparel...

Crest Pro-Health toothpaste

Just opened one of four tubes of Crest Pro-Health toothpaste I bought from Costco. It's a gel (not a paste) but the taste is horrid. Normally, the taste of toothpaste is refreshing and my mouth tingles after brushing. With this one, there was no tingle but instead a dry feeling left in my...

Amazon's Customer Service

I'm writing on behalf of my girlfriend. She insist that Amazon's customer service is the best she's ever had. She ordered some books for school. A week and a half later, the post office's tracking system said it was delivered. She called the post office and they insisted that it was delivered...

My First Red Box Experience

I rented my first DVD through Red Box over this weekend (yes..I know, welcome to the year 2009). With the exception to all the bozos who cannot make up their minds on which DVD to get, the amount of time it takes to dispense and return a DVD just takes too long. Does it really take like 12...

Kilz Premium Primer Review

Picked up a gallon of Kilz Premium Primer at the local Home Depot so I could primer my closet after doing some patchwork. Even after a week, the paint felt excessively wet and tacky -- even for even a primer. Note: Primers contain adhesives a to help a top coat stick. Would I recommend Kilz to

Sherwin Williams Latex Primer

I rolled my bedroom with some Sherwin Williams Primer before applying a darker top coat. In my particular case, rolling primer wasn't really necessary because my walls were covered with a flat/white builders grade paint (Vista Paint which is garbage). To answer a question that came to mind...

Craigslist Craigslist Posting

So I called this guy on Craigslist, Chris, who said he was selling his leather couch. The guy sounded like an idiot from the start, but I told him I wanted to ask a couple questions about the couch. I asked where he got it from, how long he's had it, and then I ask him why he's getting rid of the...

California Employer Withholding Final Paycheck

Is your ex-employer tried to withhold your final paycheck? If so, don't worry because you are protected by the State of California. In certain cases, people have received a $4,500 court ordered judgment plus whatever was owed. Dept Of Labor Standards Enforcement 107 S Broadway Room 5015 Los...

Rubbermaid Configurations Not Enough Screws

While installing Rubbermaid's Configurations 4-to-8-Foot Deluxe Custom Closet Kit, I noticed that it didn't come with enough screws to properly attach the metal support bars to the wall. I swung by the local Home Depot and was able to perfectly match the screws that came with the kit down to a...

Graber Guardian 2 Bike Rack

Bought it for $50 at Dick's Sporting Goods. I wanted to return it almost immediately after I mounted it to my trunk and put my bike on it. It did not feel very secure at all. It's good that the arms are made out of some sort of metal but the joints that allow the load bearing arm to rotate was made

Rubbermaid Configurations Closet Installation Tips

I've observed a couple things while using the Rubbermaid's Configurations 4-to-8-foot Deluxe Custom Closet Kit. Don't follow the provided directions and mount the vertical support bar 2 inches from the left side of your wall. Instead, I recommend that you center the horizontal support piece so...

Carl's Jr's Solid Customer Service

After spilling salsa on my work clothes, I wrote a pissy email to Carl's Jr. Even though I was truthful (and being an ass at the same time), they responded to my feedback quite professionally. Dear Pete, Thank you very much for taking the time to inform us of the experience you had at our...

Costco Produce Sucks

I'm done buying produce at Costco. Cuties Clementines taste bad, lettuce is 2nd grade, and I've even bought oranges that I found out were moldy 2 days later! Trader Joe's is now where I get my produce.

Minute Maid Light Lemonade

I didn't expect Minute Maid Light Lemonade to be so smooth and refreshing. This is a pretty good beverage; it isn't overpowering with that lemonade taste.

Almond Rice Pops with Blueberries

Damn..Almond Rice Pops with Blueberries is one of those snacks that you start eating, there isn't any going back until the bag is bone dry. I haven't seen this sold at my local Costco, but then again, I don't typically visit the snack aisle.

Costco Gas Lower Mileage

So, I was reading an article on Life Hacker on how brand name gas is rarely worth it, and I gotta say that I get noticeably lower mileage from Costco gas. Anyone else think they get lower gas mileage when they fill up at Costco?

Costco produce not worth the price of membership (sometimes)

I have been a member of Costco for years now. I love the place and shop there at least once a week, spending hundreds of dollars on everything from baby products to tires. That is why it hurts me so to write this complaint which I feel is warranted and a call to action for Costco to shape up on...

Oil Gone Easy Doesn't Work as Advertised

I'm trying to remove some oil stains from my garage floor, so I visit http://www.oilgoneeasy.com and purchase some of the Oil Gone Easy Home & Driveway S-200 for 20 bucks. I apply the stuff to the trouble areas on my garage floor and wait (according to the instructions). After weeks upon weeks of

REI Prices are Not Competitive

I'm a huge fan of the outdoors, but after purchasing an Ironman watch from my local REI and then comparing the price I paid against other retailers, I soon found out that I was paying a huge premium. I understand REI has rent and needs to pay for its knowledgeable staff, but a price different of...

Oil Gone Easy Stained My Garage Floor

Since a lot of product review websites actively filter out reliable and useful content, here's a comment that I left for a review on a product called Oil Gone Easy at http://www.todaysgreenconstruction.com/2009/07/oil-gone-easy-review.html I have to disagree with the result of using the product as

Pep Boys in Anaheim Hills California

You would think that Pep Boys couldn't screw up something so easy as removing a nail in a tire and plugging it up, right? Long story short, I dropped off a tire at the Pep Boys to have a nail removed. A couple hours later I was notified via a phone call that there was an "issue" with my tire...

Oscar Blandi Pronto Shampoo

I've always sprinkled baby powder on my second (and the occasional third day- eek) hair to prolong having to wash it. And then I met Oscar Blandi's Pronto "Dry" Shampoo and fell in love. I consistently use this product on my roots. It gives my flat ironed dry ends an extra day and it's a lifesaver...

Chrysler Tire Valve Stem for Tire Pressure Monitoring valve

Hello Pete, I'd just would like to let your users know of a problem that I experienced when filling the tire on my 2009 Chrysler Grand Caravan that has tire pressure monitoring valve stems. The valve stem is made of cheap metal. It snapped while I was filling the tire with air, hence all the air

Carl's Jr Bean Buritto Combo

Back in the day I was a huge Green Burrito fan. Today, Green Burrito's bean and cheese burrito combo consists of a sad little burrito accompanied by a splash of crusty rice and a meager serving of chips.

Milan Euro Lounger Review

The Milan Euro Lounger is Lifestyle Solutions latest product to hit the floors of your local Costco and is a relatively decent successor to the Ravenna Euro Lounger. The build quality of the Milan is solid and the features that stand out are its machined legs, performance upholstery and ability to

McDonalds McRib

As I took my first bite of the McRib, my preconceived notions of delight and deliciousness met the harsh reality that the McRib tasted nothing like I expected. The meat portion of the McRib seemed like a cross between a veggie and meat patty paired with some non-meat filler. The sauce was pretty...

Black & Decker ASI300 Air Pump

Top down view The Black & Decker ASI300 Air Station Inflator is a relatively decent air compressor that I purchased from on Amazon for around 40 bucks.

Down Draft Ranges Are Useless

I just got rid of my Jenn Air downdraft cook top, I am so happy with my new cook top and range hood. Down draft ranges and cook tops are useless. Do not buy one you'll be frustrated, it will drive you mad, your quality of life will take an immediate hit. They take forever to cook anything. The...

Vienna Euro Lounger Review

The Vienna Euro Lounger is Lifestyle Solutions' successor to the Ravenna and Milan euro loungers. Like its predecessors, the Vienna is wrapped in a durable faux leather material that looks great without breaking the bank. The faux leather of Vienna offered a bit too much traction for my liking,

Builders Surplus Vanity Installation

Picked up a bathroom vanity at Builders Surplus in Santa Ana, CA. After unboxing, I noticed blocks of wood were stapled to each the bottom of each vanity corner (most likely for protection during transit). Curious to know the best way to remove the stapled blocks of wood at the base, I...

AMC Stubs Employee Views

I currently work at AMC and I am constantly getting threatened with write ups for not suggestive selling the card and other items in concession. This is what I do not like about AMC, they praise the person that is able to sell stubs, and take for granted the people that are actually skilled enough...

McDonalds' new Chicken McBites

There's no denying these little guys are tasty but they're lacking the "premium breast meat" McD's says is inside. Add more actual chicken pieces and less fried fat pieces and I'll buy them again. Otherwise, I'm sticking to the chicken tender selects.

Trader Joe's Vietnamese Style Chicken Wrap

Not my favorite chicken wrap at Trader Joe's but its a definite a nom nom at 400 calories (without sauce). The actual spinach wrap tasted fresh, the amount of chicken didn't leave me wishing for more, and the veggies gave the wrap a nice pop.

Motorola Atrix 4G

This phone is a piece of garbage. I've owned it for about 9 months and regret purchasing it. I should have stuck with the iPhone.

AT&T Customer Service - Saved by Andreas

AT&T customer service reps fumbled when I tried to add an existing line to my family plan. On a subsequent call to AT&T, I had little faith that my issue was going to get resolved. Representative Andreas (in Nebraska) was able to take care of my situation and had a great demeanor to boot. He is...

JackThreads Will Not Refund Credit Card

For a purveyor of hip brands, online retailer JackThreads sure acts like a penny pinching tightwad when it comes to returns. For new and unused merchandise, JackThreads will not issue a refund to one's credit card. Unfortunately the items you returned were not damaged, defective, or incorrectly

Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930

Got a good deal on Logitech's Wireless Gaming Headset G930 at my local Best Buy that I couldn't pass up.

Buca di Beppo Charging for Photographs LOL

LOL. What's with Buca di Beppo charging for photographs at their Pasadena, CA location? I don't want photos of me eating at Red Lobster nor do I want photos of me at Bucca di Beppo. What genius came up with this great idea? 20 bucks for an assortment of photos taken from a cheap digital camera...

The Rayovac SE3DLN Sportsman Xtreme is a Little Lantern that Packs a Decent Punch

The Rayovac SE3DLN Sportsman Xtreme 300-Lumen LED Lantern is a compact lantern that offers a decent amount of light for camping trips and emergencies. The SE3DLN is currently priced for 25 dollars at Amazon.com where it currently has over 500 reviews. I purchased this lantern for use during my...

Chick-fil-A Coffee

Chick-fil-A makes a decent cup of brew. It isn't quite bold as Carl Jr's Channel Islands brand, nor is it skunky and tasteless like Del Taco's Prima Java.

Trader Joe's Fiberful Granola Bars

At 9 grams of fiber and 120 calories, Trader Joe's Fiberful Granola Bars deliver quite the experience for those jonesing for sweets. After devouring my first granola bar in my chocolate frenzy, I noticed in the ingredient list that there was more Chocolate Flavored Coating (cane sugar,...

Lifestyle Solutions - Not a Solution. Initiated a 5 month Fiasco Ending in Crap

Purchased a sofa bed from lifestyles solutions. When it arrived, the sofa back was finished in black, not matching the overall fabric. It wasn't made clear in the advertising. I suggested a fix and they agreed to send me the fabric i needed. Instead, After about 4 months of back and forth their

Dorcy 41-4750 180 Lumen High Flux LED Cyber Light Flashlight

I initially used the Dorcy 180 lumen LED flashlight to inspect my brake pads and was rather disappointed since it didn't do a great job lighting up what I needed to be lighted. Perhaps my expectations were too high for a 25 dollar flashlight which I expected to provide a magical beam of light able

La Venta Inn in Ranchos Palos Verdes

La Venta Inn ignored my email even when I spoke with them over the phone. Hi, I have an appointment tomorrow to view the Palos Verdes Estates location for a wedding (no reception). Can you provide a basic price sheet for approximately 150 people? Anyway, I'm glad I'm not giving these...

Canceled CitiBank Credit Card - No Consumer Protection

An online clothing retailer felt it didn't need to offer its customers a credit card refund upon the return of unworn clothing in its original packaging. After 2 months of disputing this charge, Citigroup decided to kowtow to this small site and did not issue a credit card refund in its customer's

Initial Thoughts of Tangy Tangerine

For a supplement priced at 50 dollars, I imaged the container would be at least double the size it is. After drinking 2 scoops of the Tangy Tangerine, I felt a bit more alert, but wondered if vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and 115 fruits are supposed to make me feel this way within 5 minutes of...

Milton's Corn Bread Crackers is Misleading

Jobst Compression Stockings Review

I purchased a pair of Jobst white knee high compression stockings. The heels have worn out--has holes in them. The compression part of the socks are holding up though. I spoke with the customer service of Jobst and they defiantly gave me a hard time on when I purchased them and do I have the...

FurGOpet Works Like a Champ!

I bought the fur-go-pet for my yellow lab. She sheds like crazy. It worked fantastic! All that loose fur came out like in bunches! She loved me "brushing" her too. Although I had to brush her like 50 times to remove all that under coat fur. Now my garage and car has a lot less hair to clean...

Covercraft Sun Shade

I've had my Covercraft sun shade to keep my black Honda Accord cool for the last 5 years here in Southen California. It's definately not the cheapest product, but its custom fit and quality build has been protecting my car interior quite well. If you don't mind spending a couple extra bucks to...

Almond Rice Pops with Blueberries

These are the best snack ever! They are addictive with just the right bit of sweetness and nuttiness. The only problem is finding them. I'm not sure these are even made anymore which would be a disaster! I found them at a Tuesday Morning store also but have seen them nowhere else and the 180...

Builders Surplus has a great selection of bathroom vanities and kitchen cabinetry at reasonable prices. However, these low prices come at a cost -- no return policy and no product support. As part of the purchase process, Builders Surplus unboxes the actual item that you are purchasing in front

AMC Stubs Rewards

I go to movie theaters a lot. I like AMC a lot, and even though I live in Queens I traveled to AMC 42 (Times Square) location primarily cos of their rewards. But just when I missed another 8 points for second rewards I was told my card expired. I didn't know I have to purchase a new card each...

If U frequent theaters get 'free' money

I've seen folks disrespect AMC for exuberant pricing on snacks and beverages, but that's been the case for the 30 some years I've gone to the silver screen providers; so get over it! My thing with stubs is when I frequent movies and spend money I was already planning to spend, this program gives

Almond Rice Pops with Blueberries

I really enjoyed the Almond pops with bluberry,I was really surprise of the taste that require me to continue eatin them well it's better than eating a honey bun!

Take Advantage of What You Have

I personally like the amc stubs program, because I actually took time to ask questions about it. Whether you paid the $12 or the $6 or received it for free, you make that money back either way. People keep complaining that you have to spend $100 to get the $10 credit. Well, the movies are so...

Atkins Advantage Cafe Caramel Shake

Snagged a 4-pack of Advantage Cafe Caramel Shake by Atkins at the local Ralphs after my lunch workout. It was the cheapest nutritional-eqsue drink that I could find on the shelves. Just by looking at the packaging, I knew I had a clear winner in my hands. It had the words "Cafe Caramel" on it.

Stubs is a Stupid Idea

Such a stupid idea for AMC making people pay for the AMC STUBS membership. People should be going to Edwards Cinema if there's one near you. Edwards Cinema has the same reward program without any fees.

I Honestly Like AMC Stubs

I honestly like the program AMC is the only theater in my area and I go to movies with friends so I just give them my card to use. I go like once a month and as a student I don't have any way to go to discounted films. Yeah concessions are expensive but PEOPLE it's 2012 not 1912 like some of you...

AMC Stubs was Marginally Useful, Now a Blatant Ripoff

AMS Stubs was a marginally useful reward card but has been greeded down to a blatant ripoff. Needless to say I will now drive the extra 10 miles to competitor and make an evening of the event.

File a Complaint Against a California Mortgage Broker

I am Moving to a Different Theater Chain

I also do not agree with the change made for customers to purchase an amc stubs membership. That should come free!!!! For those of us who love movies, amc has stripped the little benefits we use to get. It is a shame, but thankfully we have other choices in theatres. Sorry to say, or should I...

Lost More than My Points

We have frequented the Loews (now AMC) theater since pretty much since it opened in 2001. We never new about the movie watchers program but when they came out with the AMC stubs we were excited since we already were going there why not get a little bit back. Over the years since 2001 we have...

AMC Stubs is a Rip-Off

Stubs is a rip-off. I had 24 dollars ready to use, ut when I wanted to use 20 of it, they told me my card had expired and all of my rewards were lost forever! Then they had the brass to ask me to re-new, but the old rewards were never coming back. Moviewatcher was GREAT, Stubs , not so much.

Not Counting Silver Tickets For AMC Stubs Anymore!

Not counting Silver tickets anymore!!!! Well that's a shame.. Buying a $6 Silver from the AMC website equates to an A.M. early $6 movie ticket and is still money I am giving AMC. Seems very unfair to not count my purchase. You are lucky AMC Regency in Brandon, FL is the only theater in my area,...

SwitchEasy iPhone 5 Nude Case Review

Samples of wood and bamboo flooring were left out in the rain and sunshine of southern California for sixty days. The Oak wood sample showed the greatest deterioration. The grain opened, with many small splits, the color changed and the surface became rough. The Maple wood sample had a...

California Online Shoppers Pay Sales Tax on Shipping and Handling

Most Internet shoppers in California know that, since Sept. 15, Amazon.com and other e-merchants, have been required to collect sales taxes for online purchases.

Far Below Retail Review

Philips Sonicare HX6733/90 HealthyWhite

For years I've heard good things about the Sonicare, but the price point always kept me from buying one. This year I received one as a holiday gift, and I couldn't have been more pleased. As I look back, I wish I forked over the bucks for the Sonicare because my teeth feel fresh and new...

Alternatives to Financial Strength Builder

Don't spend $228.95 a year to teach you how to save and budget when there are plenty of proven resources available. My favorite personal financial guru is Suze Orman. She offers real world advice and used to be in debt herself. Keep over two-hundred dollars in your own pocket that you can more

Far Below Retail has not Responded to my Problem

I've talked to Jacob 4 times to discuss how to get the bed frame that was damaged by the movers replaced. Not once has he attempted to return of a single one of my calls. Buyer beware. Far Below Retail just wants the sale and doesn't want to provide any true product support post-purchase.

I Didn't Ask for AMC Stubs!!!

when purchasing 3 separate gift i was also charged $12.00 for the Stubs enrollment which I didn't ask for nor was asked. Someone owes me some money.

Don't Even Bother

The new Stubs program is a joke and simply my response to it is now i go to more regal theatre instead . when i use to go to Amc theatre about 3 to 4 times a month now i go maybe 1 to 2 times ever 4 to 5 months if i had to theres no incentive to go no savings at all over price tickets popcorn and...

Goo Gone Spray Gel: best way to get rid of double sided foam sticky tape from Ikea mirrors off a wall

I had 20+ of Ikea's LOTS mirror on a wall of my retail store. After more than 8 months of having them up, one fell off and shattered to the floor. I have no idea what caused it but I knew I had to take them down because I can't have possible shards of glass landing in a customer's eye. I knew it...

Goodsie Review

Don't list something on your website on sale if you don't have it in inventory. At least provide your customers this. I emailed Provident Metals' customer support over the weekend and did not receive an email at the end of business on Monday. I also called their phone number at (877) 429-8790...

Costco Travel Gift Certificate

My brother in-law surprised my husband and I with a Costco Travel Gift Certificate. Love the idea that Costco has offered but I think Costco needs to improve on their process to redeem the gift. In order to redeem this gift certificate user has to call their 1-877 number during business hours. ...

Quite possibly the most delicious spread I have ever consumed in my life. You need to pair this spinach and kale dip with another fine Trader Joe's product and you will be set for a flavor adventure.

Lexol Leather Cleaner Works Great on Acura Interior

Lexol is by far the best leather cleaner I've used in the last 10 years. Pictured below is the below and after difference after Lexol is applied on the armrest of an Acura. With a little but of effort and a new microfiber cloth, I was genuinely amazed at how well Lexol performed.

Real Tacoz Yorba Linda

Fish that didn't taste like fish and chicken that didn't taste like chicken. Fish was crumbled and not solid. Had the carne asada burrito.. The taste was definitely off. Tasted like the meat was seasoned with those Mexican taco flavoring packets that you buy at the supermarket. Sucks how there's no

Liberty Garden Hose Reel

Hello Pete, Recently purchased a Liberty Garden Hose Reel model 840, 541-632. It is constructed as on a four wheel platform. I could not recommend this item. There were 2 major issues, upon completing the assembly I started to crank the reel to take up the hose. To my amazement the crank...

Kryptonian Pizza at Walmart

I don't think this is the best implementation of cross-marketing, but it's a valiant attempt nonetheless by the Man of Steel promoters. You can't get more American than a slice of pizza and Superman.. I mean General Zod.

Real Tacoz - Not Even Close to Mexican Food

This food tastes nothing like Mexican food. Just because threw chopped up meat into a tortilla shouldn't automatically quality it as Mexican food. What's up with the menu? No carne asada, no al pastor? Oh, I see.. there's one option for 'meat'. Thanks, that really helped.

AMC Stubs Program Sucks!

Don't see much value in this programs anymore especially since they dropped the AMC gold/silver ticket usage. I really don't get this. I understand that AMC gold/silver tickets are discounted tickets, but they are still purchased for a cost. These are NOT free tickets. Plus AMC mornings shows cost...

Honda Idles Rough and Dies After Starting

When slowing down at intersections, my Honda Accord would randomly loose engine power and die on the spot. I didn't really care too much about this problem since I was always able to restart my engine and continue driving. Months later my odometer logged 160,000 miles and one morning, I found...

Lucas Heat and Air

I have used Lucas heat and air for several years and they are the best--honest-reliable--it is owned by Carla and Jerry Coleman and their tech is Gary---I called last week after hours 6pm and my message was returned within 10 min--Carla said I will have Gary out around 7PM--he showed up within 20

Hyatt Regency Newport Beach Jazz Festival

Power went out at 9pm and the concert was scheduled to end at 10pm. It was all dark and there was no electricity. No one could hear the band. The singer was singing through a megaphone. Extremely bad customer service and experience. Paid 20 dollars for parking.

AeroPress

I was doubtful about this contraption. It looked like a giant turkey baster or to the dirtyminded...I'll leave it at that. It just works. Makes a single cup of coffee pretty fast and easy. You're looking at about 2 minute brew time. The cleanup is easy as well. For about 25 bucks it's totally...

Turner Motorsport

Ordered a final stage resistor for an e53. My order was processed very quickly. Faster access to my needed part was a definite plus.

CR recommended....several times recharged at less than one year old.

Battery should have started with a charger in -9degree weather, considering it is just a year old. Grew up with Die Hards, but heard they are not what they used to be, but NEVER had a problem until their time was up. Kirkland was top rated by Consumer Reports. I'm returning it and hope it is just...

Lowe's Re-Packaged a Returned Product as New

Purchased a new Bosch jigsaw at Lowe's Home Improvement to cut some wood paneling. The boxed product was enclosed in 2 plastic bands to prevent tampering and was 20 bucks off its regular price (national markdown). As I unboxed and removed the jigsaw, I had a mini plume of sawdust fly into my...

Be persistence when negotiating with Internet services

I have Time Warner Internet. My internet bill started out at $29.99, then gradually increased to $37.99, to $47.99, then to $57.99; this was all in a 3 year period. Mind you, this was only their Standard Speed package. Anyway, I spoke with 5 customer representatives that day to try to lower my...

100 Month Warranty for 12 Month Battery

My 12877 lasted 12 months and 2 weeks. Crap battery and great warranty, which would be fantastic for something less critical like a TV. Have to make sure my jumper cables are close next July when the replacement goes. Warranty replacement went smooth, even without receipt.

Cha-Ching

Well, I never thought I would right a review defending the Stubs ripoff. So, it doesn't take much thought effort to realize the stubs program is designed to generate income. It really is beneficial to people who go to the movies a lot. Paying a high price for popcorn and soda pop is always going...

I am a 'Movie Buff', so the Stubs program pays for me to be on it. But I found MAJOR bug in the Stubs program. I brought it to AMC attention, but they just ignored me so I am letting you know what is happening. When you go to the website and see you need $16 more to the reward and you spend

Dead after 2 years but thankful for Costco's warranty.

My Costco battery died after 2 years. It actually happened while getting my car serviced so I was not left stranded. This is the shortest life I have ever seen on a battery. I replaced my AC Delco after six years only due to preventitive maintenance. Anyway Costco refunded the full purchase...

SSI, Survey Sampling International

I always get sick around season changes, especially between the months of October and November. Ahh Choo! There's no magic remedy out there, but here's what I do. I've been taking Emergen-C ever since a co-worker recommended it to me in 2004. In terms of fighting a cold, Emergen-C doesn't do...

Kirkland and Interstste

Agree the 100k month battery and warranty great. Replacing mine now due to cold weather and it is six years old. And yes, finding interstate has replaced the Kirkland brand in the stores and I see they only now have a 36 month warranty even though price has gone up considerably.

Kirkland Batteries LAST!

I purchased my (2) Kirkland 100 month, group 65 batteries for my 99-F250 diesel and they just now have stared to not hold a charge. I drive in the heat of the desert and the inland heat in San Diego. The truck sits for a couple of months at a time in the winter months since it's more for pulling my

Not worth a single star

Same as Pete from NY.......my battery has a date code of 01/2014. It was purchased in March 2014. Not even a year old. Started acting up the first cold day in January 2015. Barely turns over. It's way too low on cranking amps for the Windsor-Detroit area. My mechanic says the battery tests very...

Junk!

After charging battery twice I took it back to Costco on July 3, 2013 and they replaced it. They adjusted the price so I didn't have to pay the new increased price. On Sunday, 2-22-15, after returning from Costco for warranty flat tire repair, I parked my van as usual. On Friday 2-17-15 I went...

An early death

9 yr Kirkland

Roday I gave up on my June 2006 Kirkland batt for a 1999 Plymouth Voyager. It has been weak for two years but good enough to start my car after sitting for 3 weeks at a time. But today it didn't have enough juice to crank after having my flashers on for 30 min.

Stinks!

We bought the Ravenna Euro Lounger from our local Costco 4-6 weeks ago. We have had the window open and fan on in the room for days because it smells so bad. I was to use it after foot surgery so I didn't have to do a lot of stairs, but after a couple of nights I kept feeling nauseated so I moved...

Kirkland auto battery....great!!!

Costco/Kirkland #6 group 25 just showing signs of giving up @ 62 mo. Originally purchase 8/2010. However it has been about 120k+ miles. I concider Kirkland to be a fantastic battery.

Not Happy with AMC Website

Kirland Brand battery review

My Kirkland brand battery is just entering its 3rd year and 4th month of service and is starting to show signs of weakness. With all accessories and lights running I notice all the lights dim a bit when I disengage the clutch while coming to a stop. It's a momentary surge but I'm sure it's putting...

Is This Product Defective?

I'm on my third battery. Each replacement works fine for roughly a month or two. After that, when I start my car, bam it is dead. I had CAA test the alternator electrical system every thing is fine they charged the battery worked for as few weeks and again dead battery!

Costco Battery

My Kirkland battery bought 5/24/14 was totally dead this AM. Has been fine and driven every day until today. Manufacture date on battery is 11/13.

Costco Batteries Rock

My Kirkland 12865 group 35-640 CCA battery packed it in when the last cold front went through. It lasted 43 months (installed 7/2012) so I received 60% back ($40.67). I took the opportunity to upgrade from the 35-640 to the larger Interstate 850232 24F-700 that was not available in the Kirkland

Good Price and Warranty

Old Kirkland battery 24-640 lasted 55 months instead of 100 months. Good thing Costco refund the remaining 50%. I bought the new Interstate to replace from Costco again since I have confidence in them backing their warranties.

Interstate Battery

Bought the new Interstate battery from Costco in 2015 late. The old Kirkland one leaked acid all over my Toyota Sienna and died. Now the new interstate battery is starting to form acid at the clamps, etc. Now 2016 March. Anyone have same experience?

AMC is awful

Not stubs related, but I feel that AMC in general is a total rip-off. On line ticket purchase with attendant convenience fee in particular. At our theater, you still have to wait in line to get a ticket. It was much better when they were Starplex; No fee, print ticket at kiosk or show receipt to...

I Love Stubs

I love the stubs program, quick turnover rate as a group of friends constantly goes to the movies together. As for the 12 dollars... I've never paid 12, I signed up a few years back when they had an 8 dollar promotion and have utilized that every year since to renew. If you aren't a frequent...

Battery

My twin group 45 batteries just died. They were Kirklands that i bought in September of 2009. Lots of cranking for a diesel in the winter and I will buy from Costco again. Wife bought a sears die hard for her Mazda 6 and it died (twice so far)

Kirkland batteries compared to Interstate

My Kirkland 100 month group 35 battery bought in Oct 2007, I have just replaced at Costco yesterday Jul 31, 2016 . I have always pushed Kirkland batteries as being the best. I was dismayed to see they now replaced it with an Interstate battery 48 month warranty. I am sad. Is Costco going the way

Incredible Performance

My wife bought a new Kirkland battery from Costco in December of 2005. 1000 cranking amps/900 cold cranking amps. The purple sticker in the corner on top of the battery says 10/05 ... so I assume it was shipped from the factory in October of 2005. The battery operated fine until December of...

Don't Let This Happen To You

I replaced my Costco battery with a Costco Interstate battery for a 2005 Honda Odyssey that was starting to have problems starting this vehicle.

Car Battery Testing Service Would Be Nice

I bought a 100-month Kirkland Group 35 auto battery (item # 12865) about 4 years ago. It apparently doesn't hold a charge any longer, but it may be that my alternator (or other part of the charging system) is not charging the battery. I had the battery tested at Sam's Club since Costco told me...

2 years Kirkland Batteries

I've been buying Kirkland batteries for my Ford Expedition for the last 8 years or so. I unfortunately have had to replace the battery on average every 2 years. Today my Expo wouldn't start after leaving my emergency lights on for a few minutes. So that means that tomorrow I will be heading to...

Costco's Bogus Marine Battery Warranty

Costco's 12 month battery is the worst warranty, I've seen! When my 12 month marine failed after 13 months, the folks at Costco said if the battery last 12 months, then at 12 months and one day the battery warranty is over and you are only entitled to receive a "core charge" of $15 !

Not 100 months, but not bad.

AMC Worker Against Stubs

AMC Stubs Review from a Shill

The unveiling of the AMC Stubs card was indeed a big move in the movie-going industry. At its very best this card is intended to help repeat customers save a little cash (which is important in any economy) and to help the companies bottom line (keeping prices low for less than regular customers)....

Food is a Ripoff

I have been trying to think this through. I did not know about the price dropping to six dollars for Movie Watchers Members. That might make a difference. For those who were not Movie Watcher Members I am more dubious. If AMC is your closest theater and your prefered theater. It might be...

My AMC Stubs Alternatives

Like you Pete, I've been a MovieWatcher member for a very long time and I used to go to AMC theaters on a regular basis; weekends and many times take advantage of the free popcorn Wednesdays. I would of course buy drinks for our free pop-corns so overall AMC would make some profit. I wasn't aware...

Not Disappointed, Pissed

I was a loyal AMC theatre goer and have had a MovieWatcher card since 1995. I am not disappointed, I'm PISSED. The nerve to charge yet for something else. Is it not enought that we pay 500 percent markup on the concession stand. That the movie tickets are nearly $20.00 a piece. If you are a...

Majorly Pissed at Stubs

Sold as an "improvement," Stubs is a cynical fraud. Here's my letter to AMC. It elicited a form-letter response that has cost AMC my loyalty. There's a Century Theatre nearby. My letter: As an inveterate movie junkie who has accumulated more than a thousand points on my MovieWatcher card...
