It's unbelievable how PayPal always finds a reason to limit my account for security reasons even though my account is verified. I got 2 bank accounts linked, one debit and credit card and also gave this joke of a "company" my SSN. Nonetheless, PayPal limited my account due to a sudden and "suspicious" increase of sales volume - $230 instead of the average of around $100 a month. Of course, there were much more issues I had with PayPal. Yet, what brought me to close my account for good is a buyer who after almost 6 months filed a claim about missing an order and the thugs of PayPal gave her right.

I switched to alternative payment methods like Cash.me, Thanks to PayPal I am accepting now even Bitcoins.

In retrospect, I regret having given these PayPal crooks all my personal info, who knows what they're doing with it...

Tip for consumers: Use it as little as possible and never have lots of money in your PP account as they can freeze your account whenever they like.

I use several Now Foods products and am satisfied with them. The packaging is excellent, seals well my products. The website offers a lot of good info on supplements and health in general.

It's nice to have web access to my IP camera from any device. I can use any controls and functions like with the app. The installation of the desktop software went smoothly and uncomplicated. It also works under WINE in linux as web access works fine.

Very inflexible, the lineup of channels is OK but overpriced taking in consideration the buffering. It says free trial but somehow got charged anyways. Sling TV is as bad or worse as cable. No thanks.

Tip for consumers: Not worth the trial

It's a nice site to earn serious change but not lots of money. What I can say in favor of this site is that the surveys are short and I get paid by each question answered. Some are paid less, some significantly more. However, I never earned more than $40 a year. So you know how it is at PaidViewpoint. Nonetheless, it's still worth it. As I said before, on average, a survey is 1 minute or less.

Surnwarrior offers very affordable and satisfying vegan protein powder The customer service is excellent and there's even a free rewards program that offers free shipping.

Huffington Post is like Breitbart: Opinion pieces disguised as news. The only obvious difference is at the very left or whatever side (a side I don't want to be for sure).

My impression is that's a click bait site with opinion pieces disguised as news. Even as a conservative, I don't get it why to visit this site more than once. It's worse than NaturalNews and Alex Jones because their articles are at least more entertaining (yet still kind of fake LOL).

My final note: I was bored, got curious, stopped by and got bored again.

I discovered VitaminsBecause recently while looking for a product on eBay. I noticed the brand I've never heard of before and thought to look up the website. It turns out the seller offers VitaminsBecause three times more expensive than on the brand's own website as I see all products are buy one, get two free.

I already a couple of orders since January, the month I discoverd that supplement retailer.

The shipment is not fast. It does take a week but in return I get very low-priced and fresh supplements.

If you place several orders a week online, I recommend using this app. It works on your browser, Android, iOS and ChromeOS. Slice's main function is to keep track of packages. However, it doesn't end here. It also archives orders for you, keeps receipt and you can search for past orders as well. It also alerts you about recalls and price changes. Very helpful indeed.

Tip for consumers: You can check your spending habits and how much you spent on stores and categories over time when you click on "Slice & Dice"

UPDATE (04/03/2017): Recently, I was able to log in without issues whenever I use the mobile Google Chrome browser on my Android phone, anything else won't work. Also, only Facebook log in works for me. Fortunately, I could snag a couple of great deals, even for free. Even though there are still major issues with the website, the deals I got were great. So, I decided to change my review title "Very Useless - DEALS ARE FAKE" to "Great Deals But Can Only Log In from Phone". I add a star, too. It would have been 5 but it's still a hassle to log in as I can only use my phone.

UPDATE (03/21/2017): Today I was able to obtain a coupon code for a product in the afternoon. I could have ordered more but there was only one product of interest to me. Maybe, it's not a clickbait site after all? I updated my overall rating from 1 to 3 stars from now. Depending how it works out in the future, I will add or remove stars again. For now, I would say, try it out and see.

I thought it was a great site to get highly discounted products on Amazon. Most deals are very low priced or even free. However, I learned it's just clickbait. See herehttps://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/elitedealclub.com

Another Sitejabber reviewer also tells she paid money to get a deal but never received the product. That tells me it's really just a site to get page clicks for Amazon products. I wish there was an option to ban sellers that work with that scam site.

In all, wasted my time registering.

It's one of the best sources for news and info related to Ubuntu and derivatives. Thanks to this site, I learned about useful apps.

Arcadia Power doesn't sell actual power but handles your power bills and reinvests in green energy certificates (or something in that nature). What's important here is that it is free (there's a paid subscription as well if you want to invest in renewable energy). Even with the free service, you get $20 off your power bill. In short, Arcadia Power handles your bill payment and get $20 off, and all for free.

Besides, you get a nice dashboard and access to exclusive discounts from select green companies. Not bad. It's like earning $20 in 5 minutes.

I ordered an AquaTru in November 2016. My box arrived with a huge dent in the box. Fortunately, the system was well protected with very sturdy materials. The setup was very easy and fast. Nothing complicated.

This RO system requires much less maintenance work. The most important is to FULLY empty the tap (unfiltered) water tank after each filtering cycle. Also, I clean the tank with a clean toothbrush and vinegar every other week. In the manual, it says to clean the tanks every week but as far as you don't see any sediment build up or even algae growing, I guess every other week is OK. Of course, change filters as needed.

I made an unboxing video of my AquaTru, It's not a review video, however. If you're curious, here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmaOcBJtoT8

Tip for consumers: You can order additional unfiltered water tanks as well (not only filtered water tanks) but you have to contact customer service first.

Opera is a solid and fast browser. I can install most chrome extensions with the Opera extension "Download Chrome Extension", sync my settings with Opera Account, the Speed Dial is awesome and can be customized, it works on Windows, Mac, Linux and there are mobile versions for Android and iOS as well. The News section is an easy way to access my favorite news sites. It's an awesome browser without the bloat of Firefox and Chrome and works way better than Edge and the old IE.

What I find especially valuable is the built-in adblocker and the VPN with server locations spread across the globe and the tab preview looks awesome.

It's an exceptional, very user-friendly with lots of functions, features and settings. It's one of the best alternative broswers and that's not an alternative fact ;)

Tip for consumers: Enable Developer Mode to get additional tools like Task Manager and to check what Plug-Ins are installed

Hard Rhino is one of those online retailers that sell supplements in bulk form, mostly powder. I ordered 25 kg (approx. 55 lbs) of ascorbic acid. The shipment arrived after a week as expected. My big, heavy box arrived in perfect condition. What I also noticed is that it arrived in very fresh condition, practically straight from the plant as I saw that Hard Rhino used the original manufacturer's box and the original seal was not broken. This way I know the exact origin and know it's really fresh. Not many retailers do that. I prefer to receive a product in the original manufacturer's packaging and this way Hard Rhino doesn't waste resources in private labelling the product and can sell it at a lower price. In my opinion, a great company for bulk supplements. It's worth to take a look. The prices are similar to other bulk supplement sellers but some are the lowest I could find online, especially true for the big bulk sizes of 10 kilos (20+ lb) and beyond. It's definitely worth a look when shopping for supplements in bulk.

A formidable site to earn cashback. It's one of my favorites. The tracking is fast and reliable and I also have coupons at my disposal which I can use along with my cashback. I also love the nice website of BeFrugal. It's very easy to keep track of all my transactions and earnings. Even better, I get a 3% bonus if I choose Amazon Gift Card as payment method. I highly recommend BeFrugal. I've been using it for a long time. As a first timer, you may receive postal card and a phone call to confirm your address. That may have changed but that's what I needed to do to get my first payment. Great cashback site, period.

Virtualbox is a great way to learn and figure out what a program actually does and behave without affecting my actual system. I can see what a program does in a "safe space" and when everything goes downhill, I don't have to worry as it is just a virtual environment.

Tip for consumers: Virtualbox just needs an iso image, not the actual CD or DVD to run a live system, so you can save on disks ;)

PBS offers unique documentaries and detailed reports of current affairs. I love NOVA, Nature and occasionally Frontline. However, what I can't comprehend is that lately my local PBS station airs reruns of boring British sitcoms that even the Brits don't watch. Why not Mr Bean or Baldy Man or the good ol' Benny Hill Show? No, PBS reruns garbage like "The Last of the Summer Wine" and similar. I would have given 5 starts but those outdated, boring, never been fun sitcoms just made me take one star off.

BulkSupplements is my go-to store when I need supps on bulk quantity like BCAA powder. I received my 25 kilo bag of BCAA in original packaging from the manufacturer. The powder arrived in excellent condition, well protected and sealed and very fresh. Thanks to this company, I save hundreds of dollars yearly. Will buy from them again.
