    Book summary app

    This app is awesome, eh? I heard about it from a really cool person online and decided to give it a try. The book summary they provided was super helpful and really helped me understand things better. It's a big deal in my country because talking about anything that's not straight is totally illegal, so finding this information was a game-changer for me. I'm seriously so thankful for this app! And let me tell you, the app itself is amazing. I enjoy learning new things and this app makes it so easy and fun. It's like getting through a whole book in just a few minutes. Huge thanks to the person who suggested it and to the app for actually existing, you know? Thank you so much!

    Book summary subscription

    I truly love this app because it makes it so easy to get the main ideas from books without having to read the whole thing. The selection of books is huge and keeps getting bigger, with lots of titles to pick from. I'd give this app a 5 out of 5 because it fits my style of liking summaries that are quick and to the point. Also, I had a great interaction with the customer service team. Jean from customer service helped me out with an issue I had right away and was really nice about it. This kind of service shows that the company cares and makes using the app even better.

    Blinkist Subscription Review

    I totally recommend Blinkist, eh! I've been using it for three years now and it's a must-have in my daily routine. Whether I'm driving around doing errands or chilling at home, I always have Blinkist playing in the background. I've read a total of 1,199 titles so far and it's expanded my knowledge on a variety of subjects. I especially enjoy the different categories they offer, like science, history, motivation, and communication skills. The coolest part is that I get new titles every day, so there's always something interesting to dive into.

    Book summaries

    The book summaries were really biased towards a left-leaning perspective, eh? I mean, it felt like propaganda to me. The little comments sounding like something you'd hear on liberal news channels, and all those negative remarks about Trump and Elon Musk just didn't fit in well. It didn't give a fair or balanced view at all. So, if you're into reading stuff that's objective and truthful, I'd say this service is not for you, bud.

    Issue with invoice retrieval

    I'm having a frustrating problem trying to get my invoices from the platform. I've reached out to customer service many times and explained the issue, but haven't gotten it fixed yet. It's been a whole year of fighting to see my Blinkist bills, and I'm let down by how the company hasn't been helpful in communicating or solving the problem.

    Subscription issue

    Don't bother with this subscription, it's a total no-go. I subscribed 4 days ago and paid with Paypal, but then couldn't log in because they claimed my email was incorrect. Come on, it's the exact email they keep spamming me to sign up with! I lodged a complaint and received a reference number, but it's been 4 days and still no response, no call, nothing at all! No customer service number either, seriously? They really need to step up their game, honestly, I wouldn't recommend this subscription at all, just take a look at all those negative reviews they have.

    Quick and insightful book summaries

    Blinkist is amazing for folks who are busy but still want to learn from a bunch of different books. If you're always running around or find it hard to concentrate on a full book, Blinkist's short summaries are so helpful. The "blinks" go over all kinds of topics, so you can discover new ideas and viewpoints easily. It's like having your own librarian who picks out the most crucial information for you.

    Savings on contract renewal

    I don't usually write reviews, but I had to this time. Got a 50% discount on my contract renewal after the notice period was over. The refund was in my account within days. I didn't see that coming and I'm really thankful! Amazing customer service experience! Hard to find these days. Love the product content - just have to save some money right now. Hopefully, this review shows my appreciation!

    Thought-provoking summaries

    Blinkist has been so helpful in my day-to-day. I like to know what's going on in tech, psychology, philosophy, and more, and Blinkist gives me quick summaries that are super insightful. It's perfect for folks with jam-packed schedules who still want to stay in the loop with new info. It's definitely a good buy if you use it regularly.

    Tried to join today

    I was gonna sign up today but got sidetracked, then I checked out some reviews and I'm so glad I didn't go for it! It looks like those good reviews are totally fake, probably written by the company. Who do they think they're fooling, eh?

    Subscription renewal surprise

    I can't believe I got charged for a whole year subscription out of the blue, just days after my last one ended. I checked all my emails and there was no mention of the renewal anywhere. It feels like a sneaky tactic and has totally put me off from using this service in the future.

    Subscription Renewal Delay

    I just renewed my subscription and paid with PayPal, but it's been more than two weeks and I still can't get into my account. I reached out to customer service right away, and even though Jean answered a few times saying she fixed the problem and can activate my account, nothing has happened. Now, my emails asking about it are being ignored. This kind of service is not okay, so I asked for a refund because I don't think I'll use their services again.

    Free trial subscription turned into a nightmare

    I wish I had checked out the reviews before I signed up for that so-called free trial that ended up costing me. The customer service is terrible, which I just don't get. How can a company run things this way and think they'll last in the long run?

    Deceptive billing practices

    I was totally surprised to see some sketchy charges on my account after canceling my free trial with them. Even though I got the cancellation confirmation, they still went ahead and took my money. I'm definitely going to warn all my friends and contacts to steer clear of this company. As a biz owner myself, I can't stand for shady stuff like this.

    App feature issue

    My app wasn't working, but Marrianne helped me and the team fixed it really quickly. She kept me in the loop the whole time. It was awesome to see my issue resolved so quickly!

    Unsuccessful free trial cancellation

    I had a bad experience when I tried to cancel a free trial subscription. Even though I tried, I still got charged for the service. I sent a bunch of emails to customer service, but no one replied. It made me feel really frustrated and like they didn't care. So I had to get my credit card company involved to cancel the charge. After waiting for two weeks with no response, they finally told me I would get a refund, but they didn't say sorry or explain why it happened.

    App purchase

    I tried contacting customer support several times but didn't hear back. They went ahead and charged me $90 for an app that I never even downloaded on my phone. I'm really frustrated with the lack of communication and these unauthorized charges.
