Help for the Weary Consumer

I started to write this entry back in January, thinking that these few web sites could be helpful to people. But it has been languishing in draft mode ever since, because I never knew what to say about them. Well, here they are anyway, with a brief description of each:

  • GetHuman: “a consumer movement to improve the quality of phone support in the US. This free website is run by volunteers and is powered by over one million consumers who demand high quality phone support from the companies that they use.”
  • RetailMeNot: helps you find coupon codes for online stores. I’ve heard great things about this one, though I haven’t used it myself.
  • Refund Please: notifies you if the product you purchased at shows a price reduction within 30 days (for which will offer you a refund). Pug in a product number, date of purchase, and email address; Refund Please does the rest.
  • Sorry Gotta Go: a library of sounds for “when you absolutely, positively have to get off the phone.” The possibilities are endless.

Maybe you’ll find at least one of them useful or amusing or interesting.
