A Sad Day - 4:23AM, 2002/11/27

When MixxZine started up, way back in 1996, I was so excited. I subscribed right away.

When they expanded to have an online store, I was excited. I tried ordering things from them.

And then began the long, painful process of realizing what a crappy, messed up company they really are.

They have an unsatisfactory record with the California Better Business Bureau because of my complaints! Ha! I take credit for that.

Based on our standards, we rate this company as having an unsatisfactory business record. An unsatisfactory rating is given when a pattern in the company’s customer complaints causes us concern, when the company does not respond to complaints, or when it will not substantiate its advertising claims. In this case, our complaint history for this company shows that although the business has responded to some customer complaints brought to its attention by the Bureau, others remain unanswered. A Better Business Bureau report is based on our file information and experience with an individual company over the past three years. The Bureau does not endorse, recommend, or disapprove of any company, product or service.
