Events and Adventures, found online at EventsAndAdventures.com, describes themselves as “a community of dynamic singles” who regularly get together for social events as a fun alternative to online dating.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, many people find it difficult or frustrating to work with traditional online dating, which requires people to sit at home alone and determine whether or not they would “click” with someone with just some basic information.
Events and Adventures, on the other hand, arranges fun and exciting group outings like brunch, cooking classes, dance lessons, wine tasting, volleyball, bowling, paintball, hot air ballooning, and much more, where you can meet people with similar interests and have a common experience to use for conversation and getting to know each other.
In order to become a member, you must be single and over 21 years of age, and submit your contact information and “Home Club” location to their website. This club is available in more than 20 locations in major metropolitan area like Chicago, Dallas, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and others.
You will then be contacted directly by a company representative who will “screen you,” to ensure you are a “fun and interesting single,” as well as provide you with a chance to ask all the questions about the club you might want or need answered before you officially join.
The Events and Adventures website does not publish any pricing information, and the information that can be found in other places online varies fairly widely. Nailing down a specific understanding of all monthly, yearly, and individual event costs when talking to their representative should be an important priority for anyone considering membership of this club.
Again, the Events and Adventures website does not actually provide any information about a Refund Policy, though many, many online reports claim that there are no refunds provided by this company at any time.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who wish to contact Customer Service with questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 800-386-0866, or by simply providing your contact information and having the representative contact you directly.
It’s almost hard to know where to begin when discussing the serious complaints and issues voiced by previous members of this club. Perhaps the first thing to be discussed is the repeated complaints by many members that the representative of this club misrepresented the demographics of the members. Most reviews stated that there were more women than men at essentially all events that were attended, and that the ages of the members were not as advertised.
The issue with demographics is a minor complaint, however, when compared to the billing issues that people have had with Events and Adventures. First, this club is described as being incredibly expensive, with a general membership fee of a few thousand dollars, plus a monthly fee for access to their events calendar.
But maybe the worst and most troublesome complaint is that members are told they are unable to cancel membership “until they get married.” People who have tried to cancel their membership often find themselves sent to collection, and having long term issues with credit reports and harassing phone calls because of their failure to pay membership fees which they have tried repeatedly to cancel.
Competitors and Alternatives?
The concept of meeting people in a real world, fun, and active event as opposed to a basic online format is actually very popular and there are other companies and websites that offer people this option, including Coffee Meets Bagel, Fitness-Singles.com, and others.
