AngiesList.com, home of the review company Angie’s List, is one of the most well known places for homeowners to find reviews of their local service providers, as well as health care providers.
Unlike other online review companies, AngiesList.com provides reviews of your local businesses, but the reviews are not anonymous. AngiesList.com promises to check each one of their reviews before they are posted.
This check process is intended to stop companies from writing positive reviews for themselves or negative reviews about their competitors. This process has been evaluated and approved by a third party source, BPA Worldwide.
AngiesList.com has reviews in over 550 different home repair and health categories. They do not allow companies to pay to be represented on AngiesList.com, but members of AngiesList.com can receive exclusive discounts from top rated businesses, as much as 70% off products or services.
To be a member of AngiesList.com, you must pay for membership. The membership fees for Angie's List vary depending on where you live and what type of membership you are purchasing.
If Angie's List is new to your community, you may get your first year of membership free, as they are trying to build their list and want to encourage membership and member feedback for your community.
If Angie's List is already established in your city or town, then you may choose a monthly subscription or annual subscription. Annual subscriptions come with a 110% guarantee, meaning that if you are unsatisfied with your membership, then Angie's List will refund all of your money plus 10%.
Monthly plans are generally under $5 a month, but include a One Time Sign Up Fee. Annual fees are generally around or under $40 a year for Angie's List or the Bundled Plan - a subscription to just the health services list is usually less than half the regular annual fee.

6 ‘AngiesList.com’ Reviews
I would give a negative rating if it were possible. Angie's list is terrible. You go to the website, locate service providers, then reach out and email them. Then nothing. No one returns communications. Even phone calls proved worthless: no one would help with services, even agreeing to what they have in their own coupons online. And Angie's had very poor support via there own communications. Save your money. Use the FREE Better Business Bureau website search tool and find plenty of service providers there complete with contact info that works (phone #'s, links to websites, etc.) and reviews.
I am a loyal and regular customer of Angie's List. Very reliable. More reliable than Craigslist, in my opinion
you think your getting an honest opinion but then come to find lot of good local people are not recommended cause they wouldn't pay!
I trust independent review sites that don't require payment.
I suspect that the companies listed on Angie's somehow "pay to play" LOL!
The fact that you must pay to tell everyone about a good business is insane.
I found that information they provided was
not too accurate, and that a company listed
can & does cultivate favorable reviews as
a form of advertising (sometimes in place
of other advertising). I would recommend
you take it with a grain of salt when a little
known company that does not advertize other ways
IS HIGHLY RATED there. That does not
make it a BAD company, just perhaps not as
glowing as cultivated reviews suggest.
I had some trouble getting helped
by Angie list customer service. YMMV.
