Save your Money! | Courtney Social Media Consultant in Los Angeles

I’ve got a lot going on so I’ve been slacking…here’s a random list:

  • Check out Yodlee Money Center. It is the greatest thing. It combines all of your banking, loans, and anything else you can think of with money in one place, so that you can see all of your bank accounts without having to login to all of the different sites. I was able to combine all of my WAMUs, my ING and USAAs in one spot. You can see all of your transactions in real time as you normally would on other banking sites, only, the transactions CAN BE combined so that you see all of your transactions in real time…all together. No worries! It’s secured by RSA and Thawte.
  • Check out Great for getting good deals and learning about managing your cash flow.
  • The past week has been really nutso. I’m gonna try to blog more often.
  • I have one question for Kimberly on The Real World. Where the hell is Blackville? That was really ignorant. And Sarah was smart by telling you to “watch what you say” in a home that’s filled with cameras. Urgh.
  • I’m glad that Adam won Big Brother. I think he deserved it. I wasn’t really super excited about the way Ryan was playing the game.
  • Pray for me…and as always, I’ll pray for you.

Stay Blessed!


That Little F0CKER – Part 2 | Courtney Social Media Consultant in Los Angeles

Guess what showed up on my credit card today? :shocked:
I’m so HEATED, I cant even contain myself.:pissed:

I called the company again *since i havent heard from the owner since that day*…I spoke with one of his flunkies, who told me that theyd “Call him right now, I mean…tell him when he gets here”. SMH. My response? “Get your story straight. And let him know that I’ve already started my complaint with the BBB, and that I’ll be calling my card company once the payment clears so that I can dispute it. It would behoove him to call me back right away. *Click*”

A few minutes later *like i knew he would once he heard BBB*, DANNY FROM REGAL CARPET calls me and tells me that they havent charged my card yet; BS, because i already called WAMU and verified. :mad:

He tells me “No, the guy’s explaination doesnt make sense, but he went out of his way to go there the next day”. BS: He could have done the work he did the second day…THE FIRST DAY. He just wanted to be able to charge more. :mad:

He tells me “well, like i said…im only going to charge you $100 for the work. It takes 30 seconds to make the change”. BS: I was quoted $90.00 for the work originally. :mad:

When I asked him why it’s $10.00 more? He said “Because the guy was courteous to come back the next day”. BS: COURTEOUS??? You’ve GOT to be kidding me. :mad:

SMH. In doing my research I’ve found that this company has had 6 other claims against them through the BBB, check it out. I should have researched them before…but who woulda thought that they would have been so SHADY!

In my quest to rate them poorly on EVERY WEBSEARCH SERVICE I could find *f0ck em. they shouldnt have charged my card.*, I also found out even MORE information.Their Location Info

After calling WAMU, and filing the claim with BBB…I think I’m just OVER this whole situation. There are a lot of things that I would change. :uhh:

1) I would have walked away when that guy walked in and tried to tell me it would be more than was quoted over the phone. I could have easily called someone else and saved myself the stress and drama.

2) I would have gone with Good ol’ Stanley Steamer. Sometimes tryna save a few bucks ends up costing you WAY more in the end.

3) Look at the contract more carefully. I really didnt notice the $140.00 instead of $90.00 or the fact that he neglected to put “Truck Mounted”…or the fact that he put 3 bedrooms instead of Living Room, and Dining Room. :shocked:

Tell everyone you know…DONT F0CK WITH REGAL CARPET IN CANOGA PARK, CA. They’ll do ya dirty! And they should NOT be allowed to treat people that way.

Welp…that’s it for me…..have a blessed evening ya’ll!

No one ever said it would be easy. Life that is.

I still havent been able to get in contact with Lael. :cry:
It’s times like these where she’d listen and tell me everything will be alright. Or we’d go driving and end up at the beach and just sit there and talk…she’s one of my best friends. I gotta figure out how to find her. :sad:

I registered for classes for Summer 06. I’ll be in class 3 days a week. I’m stepping things up because I know we’ve set these BIG goals. Church helps. :pray:

We bought our tickets for our next mini-vaca this past weekend. Seattle Mariners game in July…good tickets too. I’ll make sure to take a lot of pictures. :camera:
I opened a Sharebuilder account under the supervision of a classmate who trades stocks for a living.
I stood in line at WAMU and opened another Savings Account. You can never save too much.

I received a photo of my second cousin kaila today. She’s the cutest. :tearsjoy:

We’re supposed to be getting our leather couches today…:woohoo:…so i need to clean…:bitch:…how is that for a mix of emotions. :blush:

I filed my taxes today too. I owe the government money. :pissed: Damn them. :bitch: Damn Bush. :mad: Damn Condomlisa. :sick: Damn em all to hell. :wtf: No one ever said being in business for yourself would be cheap.

Anyhow…that’s it for the rundown. I think i’ll post some photos in a few weeks. We’ll see. :shocked:
Stay Blessed! Have a good weekend *since i wont post tomorrow*.
