“Saved me with my research paper”

Written on: 09/01/2013 by 14RobertC (1 review written)

All of the sources I needed in our place, plus tools to build a bibliography and modules that showed me how to use everything properly in my research paper. Got an A. Great for anyone in college, high school, or grad students. Absolutely would recommend. Everything is credible, and scholarly. Easy to use… Read Full Review

“Deceitful”

Written on: 30/10/2012

Questia's business model seems to be centred around tricking customers into signing up. Don't even bother with the free trial - sometimes it is advertised as a seven-day trial but it actually expires in one day, and you will almost certainly end up paying something. Customer service representatives are incredibly rude. Don't throw your money away - there are so many good, free alternatives. (Google Books; Gutenberg...)… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/10/2010

without questia I would have struggled.A great range of online resources ,that is definatly worth paying for.I have used questia now for around 2 years and without questia would have struggled in obtaining enough sources for my essay
on a wider note Iam somewhat surprised at the some of the comments on customer satisfaction.I have found their service to be good and have had no trouble with them whatsoever

I found this review not helpful because... it was just a general endorsement - no specifics

I found this review very helpful because it sounded honest and sincere. There are a lot of fake reviews out there for a lot of products. Listen with discernment for this when you read reviews.

“I signed up for their free trial service. Since I was...”

Written on: 05/08/2010

I signed up for their free trial service. Since I was taking a summer class in World History I needed to find some good sources. I must have used it only a couple of times. By the end of the month I remembered I needed to cancel the service. When I checked they had already billed me again. The first time was fine, since I didn't cancel during the trial period, but the second time was not. I cancelled the service and requested a refund. As others have already complained, they REFUSED!!!

I signed up for this service and never used it. It was extremely difficult to cancel, they had lousy customer service--and they still ended up charging me for the next year. Definitely not recommended… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/10/2009

Questia is a good service in theory, but a rip-off in practice. They are repeatedly cited for unfair billing practices (unauthorized billing, difficulty canceling, etc.) and despite that have a "no refund" policy that allows them to squeeze out of giving any money back… Read Full Review

“ I joined Questia not knowing that my University had...”

Written on: 03/04/2009 by shaneklein2696 (1 review written)

I joined Questia not knowing that my University had a similar site "free" of charge. I subscribed for one year and was charged for two years because I did not contact them to cancel. They were very hard to deal with in getting any refund and it looks like I will not be getting a refund for the services that I will not be using. As far as the site goes it is not user friendly and very confusing. After the first month of trying to use the site and trying to save the material that I… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/10/2008

As for the person who was billed for over a year and not knowing it, I really wish I had that kind of money to never check my statements then blame the company for something I signed up for. I mean you don't ask for a refund on your mortgage for the month you don't live in your house. Personal responsibility has to come in somewhere… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/06/2008

It seems Questia.com offers no invoices in the form of email or mail. I was charged for my account for over a year and never realized that I was being charged. Now I know I cant seem to be offered a refund, even though they have proof that I have not used the service for 12 months in my opinion. The website itself is very nice, but I do not recommend this education site… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/11/2007 by cnh5484 (1 review written)

Questia www.questia.com is a really good website and I hope that it continues to grow. However, I hope that other online libraries are created to compete with Questia for "one stop and shop" access. This website provides a wealth of information, all conveniently located in one place. I pursued my college degree through Excelsior College which allowed me to take college course through several different colleges. I received A's in all of my courses that required research, cited work, and… Read Full Review
