Costco Car Battery Review

The original Kirkland car battery warranty provided 100 months of coverage. At 8 years and 4 months, the pro-rated warranty was so generous, that a majority of customers brought in their battery within the warranty period. In order to preserve profits and its bottom line, it is my strong belief that Costco was forced to...

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 matter of fact, you...

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 to do their job and do it...

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 the hardware kit would...

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, and the material felt...

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 transform into one of...

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 and that it was not...

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 as taking care of...

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 to my steak and egg...

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 this was due to...
