Navigating your way through terms and conditions when you buy goods can be challenging. It’s tempting to focus on the product and not on the small print, which may leave you a little lost if you’re not happy with your product. 

According to recent online review statistics, 53.3% of survey respondents explained they would rather trust a company with a high-star rating, plus 30.1% say they put faith in companies with only positive reviews. But are star ratings and positive reviews painting the whole picture for consumers?

If you have an issue with a company, you know how difficult it can sometimes be to gain a quick resolution. Even the most seasoned bargain hunters come across companies that create obstacles to refund pathways. 

To better support your customer journey, PissedConsumer Club brings clarity to your purchasing decisions, providing you with the best practices on how to resolve consumer issues, and champion consumer advocacy. The Club team gives you customized advice around consumer rights so brands do the right thing for you.
