“Jacquie Lawson is Awesome”

Written on: 31/12/2012

I've been a member for years and loved sending her cards - everyone that gets them is so appreciative. With this years membership I got the advent calendar installed it no problem and had fun using it. I can't believe all the bad comments. My only complaint is I can't find an email to send her my appreciation. I feel that the $18.00 for 2 years is nothing compared to what I was spending each year on paper cards and these MOVE!! and have MUSIC. Love them. Your long time member - Sarah from… Read Full Review

Smilingcat2013's Comment

Written on: 31/01/2013

I have to agree with this review. I enjoy so much just looking at all the cards and deciding on the most appropriate one. Personally I feel there is a good amount of cards and each one is different. I have just joined and have had no contact with anyone on her staff, but I haven't had any problems. To me, this a great idea, with very creative, talented, artistic people. I hope I don't run into a problem or trouble when and if I decide to stop my membership -- I don't like the idea of someone using my credit card year after year. So until that time, I will enjoy all that's offered intensely !! This is a great site.

“Canceled my 2 year membership after 1 year”

Written on: 23/12/2012 by artie24 (1 review written)

I subscribed for a 2 year membership on Nov 26, 2011. I have been using their cards during 2012. Now it December and I want to send Christmas cards. I am told that my membership has expired. I dug up my credit card records and e-mailed them prove that I paid for a 2 year membership on Nov, 26, 2011. I have send them 5 messages since December 12 using their contact e-mail explaining that I need to send Holiday cards, but no response. Their cards are nice, but they are no good if I can't use… Read Full Review

Ebalkir's Response to artie24's Review

Written on: 05/01/2013

They did the same thing to me. I just purchased a membership in November 2012. Additional to my membership, I purchased five Advent Calendars which was extra money.

I was only able to send one calendar because they made it impossible to access my addresses.

When I tried to send Christmas cards, they send me a message saying I needed to renew my membership because it had expired in September.

They have no customer service number, and they do not answer my emails.

I have definitely been ripped off. Is it possible they don't know how to run their business? The website has a lot of problems.

The artistic beauty of the cards is what attracts me, but if I can't even send them, what good is this?

“Advent Calendars”

Written on: 22/12/2012 by greendragonrider (1 review written)

Well I was quite shocked to see so many negative reviews about downloading on here. I'm a self confessed blonde who works in finance, not computers but I didn't have any installation problems at all. It all seemed pretty straight forward... I use Mac OS X (10.6). I thought the animations this year (2012) were brilliant and I can't wait for next years to be released! Would definitely recommend to a friend. I haven't sent any cards yet but will almost certainly do so in the coming year. … Read Full Review

“completely disgusted with WWW.jacquielawson.com”

Written on: 21/12/2012 by geraldwatson (1 review written)

Joined on December 12 after receiving a card from a friend. I liked the card and decided to join and send out my Christmas cards via e-mail using www.jacquielawson.com When I tried to send cards I was told that I was not using the correct information and that I was not a customer. You charged my visa for the two year payment. Your web sit continues to say sorry there is an error and it will be fixed in a few minutes. I want you to return my payment of $18.00 and close out my account which… Read Full Review

“Advent calendar - don't buy it.”

Written on: 20/12/2012 by Javelin (1 review written)

Purchased advent calendar for myself and sent several to friends. Had to fiddle with it, but finally got it installed. Friends who don't work with computers had a horrid time. It wouldn't install. They contacted Jackie Lawson Help and were sent the FAQ, which ended up in spam folders. By the time they found the FAQ's calendar still wouldn't download or had expired. One friend's computer crashed. No help from Jackie Lawson Help Desk. Just emailed FAQ's. I tried to contact the help desk. All they… Read Full Review

“Lousy administration”

Written on: 20/12/2012

They have really good cards but the rest leaves a lot to be desired. 1) Advent calendars showing as not installed when they clearly were - friends had thanked me for them! Alas, they have had to re-install 3 or 4 times as the days have passed. 2) I have a 2 year subscription. They said my membership had expired after 12 months. I checked my details & there it was, valid until 2013. Mailed them to say so, received an apology. BUT, they then changed my details & said I hadn't renewed, blocked… Read Full Review

“membership”

Written on: 14/12/2012 by laurelcebra (1 review written)

I understand that this is the only way to contact customer service. I sent in a membership check #4703 for $18.00 on November 5, 2012, and still have not heard that I am a member. I really wanted to send Thanksgiving cards, and now Christmas cards, as I love to get them myself, and want to share them. Why the delay in notifying me that I am a member? It's been over a month since the check was mailed. I mailed it the Jacquielawson.com, PO Box 2796, 2796 Reliable Parkway, Chicago, IL… Read Full Review

“Jacquie Lawson 2012 advent calendar”

Written on: 10/12/2012

Same experience as other reviewers. I can download the 2012 Advent Calendar but cannot activate it. Once downloaded there are no prompts or buttons to activate. I get an error from Adobe Reader (not AdoveAir) stating ..."jacquielawsonadventcalendar.air was attached to a email that was not properly decoded". I have checked the Kaspersky firewall, AdobeAir is a trusted site. I have multiple e-mail exchanges with JL support and, while their form emails are long, they are completely useless. I… Read Full Review

Adkins329's Comment

Written on: 24/12/2012

I had installed and was using my Advent Calendar on my desktop computer. I switched to a wireless desktop computer midway through the Advent Calendar. When I try to bring up the document to continue, I get the message "AIR" not compatible. How can I convert the AIR document to one that my computer will recognize. I am a neophyte when it comes to computers; so, please be specific about how I can access this document. Thanks.

“27 Calendars sent, only 15 opened”

Written on: 10/12/2012

Not at all happy, first order for 25 Advent Calendars (special price) then added a further 2 to order (charged at full price) a bit mean??? Had I wanted one for myself to view it each day I had to pay for it. Of the 27 sent only 15 of my friends have been able to open them, despite following the instructions 100%. Most of the friends are computer professionals!!!!!!!!!!!! I like JL cards and send a lot of them. I have received the same answer to my query 3 times, there is no Telephone… Read Full Review

“advent calendar 2012”

Written on: 09/12/2012 by crossjasmine (1 review written)

A friend ordered two calendars for me, one for my daughter and her children in New Zealand and one for me so that I could follow it and would be able to talk to my young grandchildren about it on Skype. Such a disappointment as my daughter is unable to download the advent calendar. Her husband has been unable to download it either and he is totally IT savvy so I guess there is a problem. I can find no way of contacting Jacquie Lawson… Read Full Review

“Advent Calendar 2012 a Disappointment”

Written on: 03/12/2012

I have love the Jacquie Lawson Advent Calendars for the last few years and have sent many to friends. This year I find it will not work correctly, hangs up, does not perform interactive tasks. I have tried contacting the "Help Desk" which, as others have said, is NO HELP. Perhaps they've grown too quickly or gotten complacent but I doubt I will be ordering another calendar. The money spent for this year is gone… Read Full Review

I was sent an advent calendar as a gift. So I downloaded it, open it up, and boom my computer got a trojan horse virus. Everything has crashed on my computer, including the printer, the volume, the voice recognition, and the whole operating system now runs SLOW.

“It is a lemon”

Written on: 30/11/2012

I have been sent an advent calendar but it is impossible to load it. The help desk was no help. I have done everything they have suggested - turned off the firewall (reluctantly), downloaded Air, kept the browser open - and all I get is an error message. It has worked in previous years, but not this year. I was going to buy some to send to friends but it is now too late and I will be giving it a miss… Read Full Review
