Kizoodle

Kizoodle is an online bartering system which has kizoodles as the monetary units. The model is that buyer agrees to buy certain seller listed items at some agreed kizoodle value and the seller uses these units to go buy other things on the site. The domain seems to have a advertisement based model. Trouble is that there is no protection between buyer/seller and most items in this environment are low valued items. Kizoodles only work on that site which is a bottleneck in the network growth. It will be interesting to see how the site evolves and grows.

kizoodle.com was a good idea, but only in theory. the site boasts itself as a 'free' trading site, which it totally false. the seller pays all shipping fees, which add up very quickly. there is very little to buy with your accumulated points, because the good stuff gets snatched up very quickly and members have racked up enough points by selling/shipping to buy at their leisure.
the forums are packed with very opinionated and crabby housewives, in general. and as with any situation dominated by women, it is a very childish and emotion-filled place with back biting and ugly behavior.
most of the items for sale are very over priced and a lot of the stuff is not in the best condition. as everyone's opinion about 'excellent/good condiiton' is different, you are going to have conflict. some people don't care about stains, holes and others do.
there's no administration to speak of. it is one guy who works a full time job and runs the site in his very spare time. he is a non-confrontational person who doesnt clear up conflict, but expects buyer and seller to hash it out. if no agreement is made, points hang in limbo indefinately.
delivery confirmation helps in some disputes, but very few people use it in shipping. this is not ebay where people know what they are doing. it is amateur hour.
the potential of getting something totally worthless for your points is very high. stains dont show in pictures and sellers dont have to be honest.
the feedback system is yes or no and not very effective.
KIZOODLE.COM IS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR A GOOD DEAL AND A MONEY SAVING WAY TO OBTAIN ITEMS FOR THEIR KIDS.
it was a nice place when it was first started, but the referral program brought in the riffraff and the administration's lack of power and organization drove it into the grouns.

i totally agree.
i was a member in the early stages, but left when it became more trouble than it was worth.
in the beginning, you got a point for every item you sold. admin. took that away.
the forum used to be a place to chat, but became a place to whine and name-call.
the stuff for sale used to be very reasonably priced, but in time got very out of hand and not a good value for the points needed to buy.
in the end, i spent my points and left and havent looked back.
i wish i could say it was fun while it lasted, but it really wasn't. JMHO.

I actually kizoodle now. I don't know how it was at the beginning. I just actually found the site from a customer of mine on ebay. I will admit there are some really stupid things on there that people want to sell/kiz but, I also have found some AMAZING deals! I got a brand new with tags Men's Pea Coat on there and it would have been outrageous on ebay and I only paid 35 kiz bucks for it. I've gotten some really awesome items and brand named as well for all the kids in my family. The administrator has been taking off all of the trash talking and prohibiting a lot of things in the forum, he's also worked out some things about people not sending/shipping their kizzed items to benefit the buyer. He's tried and been doing much better on all sorts of aspects to this site. I do agree though that all the good items get taken quickly but, hey...it's a glorified garage sale type of thing, of course the better stuff is not just going to sit there. There also have been some really reasonable items that i've gotten and I enjoy to kiz with other members. Yes, the downfall is that you have to ship the items but, you do make up for this in kiz points. How else would you expect the items to get to the person if you don't ship them? And I will say the shipping is NOT over exaggerated like with some ebay items. I guess it's all in people's own opinion.

The administrator has prohibited all the garbage that used to be put into the forum. There are some excellent deals to be found on kizoodle. Items are added every hour of everyday, you just have to search for them. Don't just go to the first few pages and think that that's all there is. I have never had a problem with someone not shipping my item. I've always gotten everything I've kizzed. Mind you, there is some junk on there but, ebay also carries some junk, they don't prohibit junk from being posted to auctions, it's you bid or you don't. I like kizoodle because you don't have to wait, you kiz the items and they are yours free and clear. The person has 5 days to ship and they do most times way before that 5 day mark. The shipping is not overpriced most times just 2-3 kiz bucks which is 2-3 dollars versus the 10.00 charge most ebayers ship for, for just a top or pair of pants.

kiz is great and yes the admin does work a full time job but is ther to make sure there is no drama on the forum! i get great stuff and love all the ladies on there! its fun and worth it

Anonymous said...

kizoodle was great, in theory. but a few months into it, it lost its appeal, as members were shelling out huge amounts of shipping money (especially if they didnt know how to do it cheaply).
it says free, shop with points, great way for moms to help each other, yada yada. the only thing free is the BS in the forum. there's plenty of that to go around.
to earn your points to shop with, you have to sell your stuff to others, and pay to ship it to them. then, you have to hope someone lists something that you need WHILE YOU ARE ONLINE, otherwise, someone else will 'buy' it.
members sit on points and complain about 'high price' of items, when kizoodle points arent really cash and have no value anywhere other than kizoodle. so, they amass huge piles of points and spend their days in the forum being rude and hateful to new members and crabby and immature to each other - day in and day out.
the admin. is one guy with no clue. he doesnt care enough about his site to run it. he lets it run itself. he promises things that are never going to happen and ignores the emails and issues that arise among members.
if you dont ship with DC, you dont get your points, if member doesnt mark received. they dont get their points back, either. the points just exist in 'limbo' because there's no such thing as dispute resolution on this site.
dont waste your time or your money with these hateful biddies and their overrated site.

i kiz now and must say that i've seen it have its ups and downs. but i've gotten some great stuff there. if it weren't for kizoodle my kids wouldn't have many of the things they do now. they wouldn't have nice clothing because i can't afford it but i've been able to get them some nice things from kizoodle. i think paying shipping is a small thing considering everyone i purchase from on kizoodle must also pay the shipping for the item i am going to recieve. yes there is alot of drama in the forum area but that is because everyone is human and has feelings. i'd like to see less drama there but that's not going to change. so i just try to ignore it most of the time.

i love kizoodle and i have gotten some great deals on this site. yes you pay the shipping fees, but so does everyone else so it evens out. i have dressed both my kids from the clothes i get on there and i have made some valuable friends from the ladies in the forum. right now the kiz economy is bad and yes admin is no where to be found, but all in all not always a bad site. and i will put my name here jenzizcool!

Anonymous said...

most of the members are scam artists begging for handouts and looking for a pigeon to take advantage of.
every day is another member wanting to complain about not having money to pay their bills, but they are spending all this shipping money to send this stuff out to get points that they complain they cant spend because there's nothing in the store.
there's nothing good to buy because the jerks in the forum have killed the kiz economy by only trading with each other and eliminating the kiz store altogether.
i left and so did most of the good members i bought and sold with.
the new members would do well to stay out of the forum or keep their mouths shut, as the clique of middle school acting moms wont tolerate anyone with half a brain in their ranks.

STAY OUT OF THE FORUM, if you go.
dont feel sorry for the ones with the sob stories - if they were really that hard up, they have no business shipping stuff out with their low income budget.
i saw women on their who are on WIC and food stamps and the medical card?
WTF? if you dont have any money and i am paying you and your kids' way already, what do you think you are doing on a trading site that costs you money to ship?
MORONS.
not a bad way to get some stuff, but yard sales and thrift stores are cheaper.
and as with any group of large individuals who are mostly women, the amount of crap you have to go through to navigate the site and its semi-retarded members is very high.
THUMBS DOWN.

wow kiz has really saved my life without it we wouldnt have had a thing for xmas last year. it supplies my gifts throughout the year and keeps my children clothed. some people do ask for handouts but i think that is something you will find everywhere.... i LOVE kiz and it is a great site and every time i need something i get it.

nawnamamma from kizoodle, the best trading site for parents! so go get a life, you anonymous vouchers! said...

kizoodle is a wonderful community of moms that care for one another and are there for eachother thick and thin. i am not a housewife, i work 50 hours a week and make time to spend with my family and my kiz family. i love them all dearly and they are wonderful hearts filled with a shoulder to cry on, and an ear to lend.

i think everyone should try kizoodle and if you dont want to buy/sell atleast come visit us in the forum!

and as for the comment "the forums are packed with very opinionated and crabby housewives, in general" you should get to know us a little better. i am not crabby, i am very nice. but maybe you p!ssed me off?

I think some people are taking advantage of the anonymous comments on this site. It has now gotten completely off the topic. If you believe someone is doing bad trades, or soliciting free items, then don't deal with them. The forum is supposed to be there for support and information. I love kizoodle, just got 2 packages from there today. I like helping other moms when I can, and knowing I can talk there with other moms who have been thru the same things, etc. If you don't like it, don't go there, or just bypass the forum all together.

I've been a member for a long time. There are pros and cons as there are on any site of this nature. All in all, I'm happy with my trades on there. I've gotten lots of high dollar items including NIB UGGs, boutique brand kids clothing (Little Mass, CachCach, Lipstik, etc.), ABBA shampoo, and an Aveda gift set. The listings have dropped off a bit lately, but if one is patient they can find worthwhile items on which to spend their credits.

On Kiz since day 1 said...

I have been involved in kiz from the beginning! kiz has it's days really. Also a lot of poor me stories, plase help me, and one that posts all the time and says how bad off their family is, and how sick the kids are, but they are in the forum more then anyone and jumps on every thread when someone offers something. Or gives a sad story I really need it, but I dont have credits. on and on again. If you think about how mayn sites they may be on doing this she probably has so many people sending her stuff. Its rediculous. Some ladies are very honest and will only take what they can use credits for and give no sob stories. Some people are clueless to how bad off some kizzers are but give there all to help others. Even if they are giving something that they could probably use more. If you stay away from the drama and continue on you can get some great deals if you are honest and not bumping your posts all the time to the main page so that you can get attention. A few times is ok, but not every minute. You just get sick of seeing and hearing it. So if you want to have a true kiz experience stay away from those people listed previously and also the kizzer with all the stories and poor me's.

atam28 said...

wow, most of you don't have the balls to post your real name or user name there.

Yes, the site has it's ups and downs and it's share of drama.

But it's a great place for moms to get together and help each oterh.
It oculd be with a tangible item or a shoulder to lean on.

If you don't like it, don't come back, we don't need you or your negative attitude.

And as far as that person being a scammer, she is far from it.
A lot of use care how her daughter is and how she is.

We are a caring community.
It's too bad you don't see it that way.

I think KIZOODLE is the best thing that has happend to the internet in a long time I have met great and wonderful people some of which are on your scammer list just becuase people choose a different direction then you think is right does not give you basis to call them a scammer or cheat! You need to look in the mirror real hard at yourself and ask yourself one question? that is this " When did my life get so boring that I have to rip down other's" No one should be able to rip down or tear down or post negatvie comments about anyone without some thoughts of how wrong it is! if you don't like Kizoodle then leave but don't post such BULL that no one is honest or gives a rat's butt cuz I know a lot of ladies myself included that have given a lot to the people of kizoodle and I will not let you tear or rip or puncture those people that I call my friends!

ahhhh, Damn!! I didnt make it on anyones hate list!


Seriously, why are you people being so mean? Do you really have such low self esteem that you find the need to bash others?

If you dont like Kizoodle, stay away from it. I mean, no one is forcing you to go on that site.

Kiz is an awesome place with alot of caring individuals, all of whom are human. This is rediculous bashing. I go there to get good deals and support from other moms. And I get those things everyday. It's a worthwhile site!

Unfortunately my time on kizoodle is limited due to a change in my household, but of course i do stop in, see what is in the store, see what peoples wants are, and check out the forum. Sadly today i came on and found this link. I can honestly say kizoodle is having a hard time right now, but so is the whole world, not just kizoodle. I have had my moments where i wanted to stop coming on and just stop kizzing, but it is a moment, b/c in all actuality this site has helped my family ALOT. My daughter's have closets full of clothes and bins stored away for the next season, my 7 yr old got the best presents in the mail for her birthday from some of these fine caring women on here. My 2 yr old knows who the mailman is and LOVES opening packages, whether kizzed or just sent out of care. So to come on and find a thread bashing this site and the helpful caring women on it is very sad. What is even sadder is that we are all grown women with children who we are raising to not hurt other peoples feelings, not talk about someone behind their back, not to make fun of other kids in school b/c they don't have something, and the list goes on of what we teach our children everyday, yet we come on this computer, sit behind a screen with an anonomous name and do the same thing we teach them not to, what do you actually think they are learning by watching you? Of course they are learning to DO exactly what you told them not to. This kizoodle site is not just a swapping site, it is a place where women or men can trade their clothes, but share their lives with other people, b/c who would want to hold in when your child does something funny. This a place where you can ask any question from a to z and get an answer from some experienced caring women. I guess we shouldn't take things for granted b/c unfortunately like our lives, this site isn't promised to be here tomorrow either and wouldn't it be sad if it disappeared.

first of all I would like to say that I love kizoodle! I have met so many fantastic women on there! The funniest thing that I see about this whole blog is all of those people saying that the kizoodlers are nothing but backstabbers are the only people coming here and saying all this bullshit and then going back to the forum on kiz and acting like they are your best friend. So who are the REAL backstabbers? If you weren't a backstabber then you would post your name here so we all know who it is that doesn't like the site! JMHO

I love Kizoodle! My kids have got so many clothes and hairbows and I love that place. The drama stinks some days but I figure karma is a bitch and people who are scamming will get theirs. Oh well. When I do nice things, I try to ensure no one knows about it but the person I do it for - I do it because I want to. And if I've been scammed - ten I felt in my heart I was doing something nice for someone and shame on them for taking advantage of other people. Yes kiz is going through a rough patch but I will continue to make my dailt trips there - and I work, go to school, raise 2 kids and a husband so the 'housewife' comment is unjustified.

My favorite is when someone asks for FREE/RAOK for a whole LIST of items...like whats on there right now from Art Lover...and the funny thing is she insulted someone else a few weeks back that needed food and toilet paper and other necessities. Karma lol Good lord, maybe shes not scamming but shes a damn mooch!! Oh and rustytoes is just a damn whiner wahhhhh and a kiss ass as well. Her and good ole Robert are probably camming each other in their free time for her to get that position.

Kizoodle is a great place to trade your unwanted items.

I have saved alot of money by kizoodling and would highly recommend anyone to join.

come and see what we are all about.

Not everyone there fits the stereotype that has been portrayed in this blog.

I for one, am college educated and have a fulltime job. So does my husband. I just like to save $$$ and help other moms out there regardless off their situation, After all, we are all moms. Let's support each other and end the bashing.

well since my name got brought up a few times in the previous posts let me tell you this! all of this sounds a bit spooky to me! and I think we are far better women then the one spoutin her mouth cuz nobody will kiz to her! oh poor me stories and all kizoodle is great place to meet and keep friends I have met lots of nice women and I would hope that I can be on someone's nice list as well as for selling stuff on kizoodle I have sold to people on kizoodle high quality items per request! off of kizoodle sure I met them on kizoodle I do all business away from kizoodle and as for the bite me comment mmmmm you taste good!

Well, I love kizoodle. It has saved me quite a bit of money. Yes there have been some scammers...and some assholes. but what site does not have those?!?


As for the do not do business with lists up there ^^^ I think that is a crock. I have done business with most of those ladies on kizoodle and other swap sites as well. Never had any problems. The P.O. makes mistakes...people make mistakes.


just because you have one bad transaction with a person does not make them bad...just because someone states their opinion...does NOT make them bad.


Asking for help does not make a person bad.


Sharing your feelings and needing a shoulder does not make someone bad.


venting does not make someone bad!!! Come on!!! I'll agree, there are some ladies on kizoodle that i do not like. but you are never going to like every single person you meet. Get over it. Ignore them. Meet other people.

Don't think that the whole site is bad just because you do not like one person.

Nope, we dont live paycheck to paycheck, but we are far from rich. I am blessed with great kids and a wonderful husband. So if it pisses you off that I am a happy, fullfilled woman, that is YOUR problem, not mine.
AND I AM a good person. I treat people with respect (when they deserve it), I dont talk about people behind their backs (I will say it to their faces), and I help people if I can.

Sorry to disapoint you, you did not manage to make me angry. I dont care what you or anyone else thinks about me.

good grief. as if we don't have enough drama in the forum, everyone has to go off here too. the kiz site is both bad and good, there are good people on there and scammers. same with every site that does trade/swaps/selling.

This is the moderator again. I tried my best to clean up some of the comments containing offensive material. And anonymous commenting is back on as well (I will moderate it for some time). Generally, as long as the post doesn't contain offensive language or information which I don't think helps a larger audience won't make it here.

kizoodle is a lot like high school.
there's a group of little kids, moms in this case, who dont know how to be nice unless they are the center of attentin.
when you arent kissing their butts, they talk mean about you.
the people who spend their points and go on with their business are great.
i wont buy from or sell to any forum regulars.
there are some really awful people trying to unload a lot of crap.
you have to weed through it.
i have gotten some great stuff.
but a lot of crap.
so, it evens out.
you dont need kizoodle, now. it's yard sale season. so, save your time and shipping money and shop locally.
the rest of the year, if you visit the second hand stores, you can do better than you could ever do on crapzoodle half the time, as well. JMHO

The above poster is right. There tends to be a great amount of backstabbing and drama. Also, forum members continue to cry for $1= 1 credit, yet forum members don't follow their own advice. They post vhs tapes without cases for 7 plus shipping, get serious! Shame on you.

Mom22princesses said...

Wow. This really has been entertaining on a rainy day but never in my life have I've seen so many two faces people. I think I decided to read this to see if my name has been posted. It hasn't. Yet. LOL

I have a love/hate relationship with kiz. I would rather sell my stuff for cash but love the forum and MOST of the forum ladies. I don't like some of them but I never talk behind someones back so I'll keep opinions to myself on that one...unlike the rest of you.

I guess I'll just if you don't like kizoodle...leave. But actually LEAVE and stay gone.

I have to agree with the other posts regarding the drama and backstabbing on Kiz. I wish people would stop assuming everyone wants to hear about their "personal dramas" in life. It is really sad that Moderators were put in place and they are the same people who continue to post their own personal drama. Kiz was once a great place to be, now it has truly turned into a circus for everyone to whine and cry and scam. I don't blame the owner, he is one person, the same ladies who cry the most about Kiz are the same people who changed it. JMHO

in the beginning, and yes, i was there.... kizoodle was a place to get a good deal on some kids clothes and toys. the members were friendly and helpful. the admin was active and productive. there was no conflict. there was no drama.
now...... kizoodle is a place to go to let off some steam and complain. there's very little, if anything listed in the store that i would pay credits for. the site is run by the same one man admin. he gave up on the site long ago, but gave us a couple of mods. unfortuately, the moderators are jaded members who dont care any more about making the site what it used to be than the man who runs it.
there are several other sites that are more worth the effort.

Someone is bound and determined to tick someone off sooner or later. Apparently I have too. lol Since I actually was named as being a "back stabber" (love to see the proof on this) It happens with every site. But why not show your name? Why not let them know how you really feel? Is it because you too want to stay in the "click" and not be "shunned"?

amberburd said...

wow i have finally been brought into this --i feel so flattered! thank you for thinking of me. so just to state my peace i have been reading and lurking in the shadows of all this sence yesterday.i have not made a comment on here or in the forum about any of this just to simply stay out of it all. i am not a scammer , i have not ever asked for anything i asked for old teeshirt that i could cut the sleeves out of for my dh about a week ago, and that is it. i have never done a trade with anyone and if you would like the link to my photobucket i can provide that also, i do not have junk, my kids wear super nice clothes, and i have never talked bad about anyone?? i have asked in the forum about certaim members when things have not been marked shipped or recieved in awhile but that is it. yes i am a stay at home mom , but TRUST me most days i would rather be working. no i dont recieve any public assistance, no medicade, no food stamps and pay 1,000 a month for my house. im sorry that your dh dont make enough so that you can stay home!! mine does for the most part and im seeking a pt job just to get out of the house and have extra money. not that any of that is your business. i am not in a clique i am just me and usually post off the wall things about what my kids have done that day or a get to know you better thread and its interesting to me to read about other familys experiances. i am not a bad person and actually kinda shocked that i would be mentioned on the list, but again thank you for thinking about me. you do know that you have made yourself pretty obvious so you should have just signed your name think about it with all the names that you posted and the agreement with the prior names that only leaves less then a hand full of forum regulars that you could be.

i guess you put us in our place.
lol
you are one of the ones who gets on my nerves.
and that is exactly the attitude i cant stand.
cause you think you know them and they havent scammed you yet, they are angels in your eyes.
you ever seen them face to face?
been to their houses?
didnt think so.


have you? in order to accuse someone of scamming you also need to see them face to face and have been to their house. on the internet it is virtually impossible to tell who someone really is. it is impossible to tell if the ARE a scammer and impossible to tell if they are NOT. i have had transactions with a few of the people on your list and have not had problems. jmho

cathy said...

LOL! I GUESS I DID PUT YOU IN YOUR PLACE! IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU STAYED THERE TOO! LIKE THAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN! OH AND YOU HAVE SEEN THEM FACE TO FACE AND BEEN TO EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEIR HOUSES???!!!! DIDN'T THINK SO EITHER!!!!

SO SAD THAT YOUR LIFE HAS TO HAVE ALL THIS DRAMA IN IT FOR IT TO BE INTERESTING AND WORTH ANYTHING. I REALLY PITY YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT IS BEHIND THIS! BABY2007

OMG OMG OMG THEY MIGHT DIE... Who cares, we dont know these people so why do you all keep posting about things that we can do nothing about and we dont even know who these people are.

And dont forget to FINALLY MAIL those things that NEED to get out for your Secret Sister things, you will go to Hell if you dont do it. But then again, you dont send the items people KIZ so whats the Difference??????

TO THE PERSON WHO WROTE ALL THESE:
7)If you are so poor that you can't buy food why are you spending money to ship things feed your kids.

I AGREE WITH YOU IN ALL YOUR IDEAS AND COULDNT PUT IT INTO WORDS ANY BETTER!!!!
QUIT KIZZING THIS, AND FEED YOUR KIDS, FOOD TASTES BETTER!!!

One final thought-if all these people are so broke how do they afford internet as well as a digital camera. I know when I was broke the first thing to go was the internet and a digital camera was out of the question!

lilmsmu said...

Well I cant speak for everyone else listed here but for me, the internet is included with the apartment. and my digital camera is 5 and 1/2 years old.
Any other questions?

i am so glad that i am not the only one who feels this way.
some people just think that because there are people in this world who have more than they do, that we owe them something.
guess what, we worked for it.
and you have to do the same.
i got burned by some members in the beginning, but learned my lesson and stopped sending stuff to these women.
i give up.
i dont care anymore.
i mean, how much can you 'help' someone who refuses to help themselves.

lilmsmum said...

I do have a job. and dont expect anyone to pay for anything. I do not receive any kind of government assistance either. I asked for help when I needed it only because of my child.I am very grateful that some people helped me. Some of my wishes were to help others or for cards for my dd's bday because she loves getting mail. Horrible of me I know.
I am happy to do the same for others. and I am not in any Swaps. Pay attention to who you are talking to if you are going to post crap.

I notice you have not emailed yet. Stay a coward if you must. I feel bad for you and hope your life gets better so you dont feel the need to be hateful to others.

By the way, anyone is free to wish for anything on wishuponahero. It is an awesome site with lots of great people. Everyone please check it out. You can wish to meet a movie star or help someone out. The possibilites are endlesss

pilipeymj said...

ok how about instead of sitting here bashing other women you guys go GET A JOB! some people on kiz CANT work. what you want them to go work at mcd well who is going to watch the kids?? child care costs wayyy to much and if they go a job at mc donalds it would basically pay for child care, and then their kids would be raised by someone else. as for helping others out, noone is making you. if you dont want to then dont do it, but sitting here bad talking people just because you can hide behind annonimous, really what does this accomplish. there are thousand of memebers you guys going to just go through the list of people?? yesterday it was me,and rusty and today its back on rusty and jackie. so what if she is online, do you ever see her kizing stuff, and if she does ship stuff out its right by payday and only if she has the extra cash for it. and so what if she is on wishuponahero, so are many many people and she is seriously the one of the few on that site that need it. and as for picking on her posts about her kids, well now maybe i should pick on your posts about your kids. how would you feel about that?? talking to other moms especially when going through a hard time is one of the ways people deal with such life difficulties. and then talking bad about rusty, what are you guys jealous because your all fat and have never been skinny or pretty or a professional dancer like her.or how about the fact that she has great kids and your kids, if you even have any what man would ever want to procreate with you, are probibly mean angry bullies like well you bashers. think about karma guys and trust me people will find out who you are the last poop starters were outed and you will be too and noone will want anything to do with you guys. seriously go and get a life people, i am sick of you hurting my friends.

I'm very saddened by this post. I am an active kizoodle member and have been since it pretty much started. Yes it has slowed down, there have been a few scammers, but I haven't had any problems with anyone personally and now this thread has me scared to death. What if I say something wrong in the forum and people start saying these things about me? I work full time, I take care of my child, I had a bad week one time due to circumstances I couldn't control and mommies on the board helped me so much I was in tears. There are good people on there. Some names that are mentioned on here have my jaw on the floor. Never in a thousand years would I put them in a 'scammer' or 'meanie' category. I do have an education, I work, but we still leave paycheck to paycheck. Does that make me white trash? Am I horrible because I had a bad week and I didn't get my cable, internet, or phone turned off? Should I have immediately filed for bankruptcy, or humbly accept the help from other mothers? I'm sorry for those who have gotten scammed, and I know it's hard to tell the genuine from the fake. But, I know, some really have to put their pride to the side to ask for help. I am going to spend the few credits I have left and be on my way from kizoodle. Although it has helped my family soooo much, I can't be in fear that every transaction that I"m involved with may tick someone off and ruin my reputation. I know how to keep in touch with those that I've gotten to know well and actually consider my friends. Some of my very dear friends have already left this site since this thread and it hurts to no end. I'm hope in the end those who have hurt, scammed, or decided to let it all out on this thread can answer for themselves in the end, and ask themselves if it was really worth it.

I seen this last night, but due to situations in my home I was unable to post and by the time my little ones were down it had been deleted from the forum. Who ever started this blog obviously was and or is still upset about the whole Kizoodle deal. I myself have made a lot of great friends and found a lot of great deals. Yes I have had a few bad transactions but heck who hasn’t?

As far as the bashing to the housewife ordeal some of us are just LUCKY and are able to stay home with our children. I am a professional worked my butt off have a college education and had always been a “bread” winner for the family, but due to my husbands disability and the income we make it. YES we have our hard times. I am a RN and plan on going back to it when my children are all in school. I run a business out of my home which brings in extra income. So I use this to ship my items. We did have an ordeal with a “freebie” deal but things have been straightened out since. Many of the women were gracious enough to send my little ones things we needed and was more than willing to kiz the items.

To address the CC ordeal…..NO I am not kissing her butt she has been good to me. She has kizzed me tons of DVDs to get us threw due to not having cable in the neighborhood. She is very generous and sincere. Why the attacking……if you don’t like Kizoodle then leave if not then help to make it a better place for us all.

Addressing the RUSTY ISSUE that is just plain rude to say, NO Rusty and I do not talk on any kind of basis, I did send her a card during her tough time but who is anyone to judge anyone’s marriage. I am sorry we all have marital problems at one time or another. Just because she needed support and someone even though it being over the net to express her feelings so be it who are you to judge.

I see as well I am on someone’s blocked list……I am sure the person who has NO BALLS is on mine due to mine is rather long. ONE less person I have to have a bad transactions with.

CarmenS on the other hand is a dear friend of mine, NO I have not met her but she and I have had many amazing transactions and I was lucky enough to get her for two swaps…..I got the best and exactly what I could have ever wanted.

Tymoria and I have had great transactions why post person lives on a public blog is just plain wrong.

Basically if you have nothing nice to say then keep your mouth shut. I am sure this will put me on may more ppls blocked lists but oh well. There are others who I can not remember all who was attacked. We do not get food stamps, any public assistance and or any government help. My husband gets SSI and so do our children…..he worked for it. Our children are fed and well taken care of. I am happy to have found the sight due to the “friends” I have made and I have kizzed some awesome things that have really helped save me some money.

As far as scammers they are everywhere……on every sight and it is either your going to be suckered or not. I send RAOK when I can to my “personal ppl” I deal with and that is it. I do not just go threw the list and pick someone. I have only got one out of the blue and my son LOVES it, mind you it was a book but a smile on a child’s face and the warmth it can bring is priceless. A book or just a little card to say HI I am thinking of you can make someone’s day. It is not about what you give it is the thought behind it.

You and or I do not know peoples home situations and I have questioned some myself but I am always willing to give as much as I receive. I made that promise to myself along time ago to put in as much into a relation as the other does whether it be my marriage, friendships on and off the pc. I am always willing to go the extra mile for someone until they burn me.

If you do not like the forum due to the drama stay out of the forum, if you do not like the prices email someone and ask them to come down. I myself list higher in the store just because I do not know whom I will be dealing with. Kizoodle has a lot of wonderful women is all I have to say and if you don’t like it then stay away. DEMMA05

All I have to say has been said " I sure hope that when hard times fall upon you someone is there to pick you up" cuz you know what they are gonna fall and when they do you so better not come to kizoodle for help! you have made a mockery out of something nice and wonderful I have a job and I probably am more well off then you however I feel for those that don't did you ever stop to think maybe they can't find a job in a rural area or something like that? no becuase all you care about is yourself and making other's feel like shit well I couldn't care less of what you think of me or anyone else but I want you to know this how would you feel if someone committed suicide because something you said! I just want you to think about this!

Kiz Member said...

I have been a kizzodle member for months now, and I just want to spend my points and get out...I have lots and lots of points left that I need to spend, and then after that, I am gone.

I have spent hundreds of dollars on shipping costs, not to mention the items that I kizzed, and now I am stuck with a bunch of points that I cant use. The quality and quantity of the items in the store is ridiculous, and the good stuff gets snatched up QUICK. I refuse to list one more thing, and waste my shipping money. The trading that goes on in the forum is contributing to the demise of this site, along with very poor administration.

The trading in the forum has gotten ridiculous, and now its even starting to spill over to the kiz store. I get really irritated when I take the time to read a list of items that I think are for sale in the kiz store, only to read all the way to the end and see that they are "for trade ONLY if you have xyz item to offer me"...its ridiculous.

I understand the reasoning behind wanting to trade items, but what people dont realize (though it has been suggested over and over again) is that if EVERYONE would just stop trading, and list items in the store, kizzodle can be where it use to be. Unfortunately, the "good" times were before my time...I think trading should be banned altogether.

You have good people on kizodle, and you have bad people on kizoodle, just like any other avenue in life. I personally hate to say this, but I will never help another person on there out again. I helped one person out, and never even got a thank you...I know that there are people that would appreciate the help (unlike this person), but I have a bitter taste in my mouth now...seems like everyone wants something for nothing, and half the time, they arent even appreciative.

To the members that have been there awhile, and have formed friendships, I am sure its a great site for you, and I am sure that you have had your good times, and have enjoyed the kiz ecnomy in the past...however, you have to see that it has become a pretty sucky place for new members, or even fairly new members...

I dont think that there should be any asking of stuff for free allowed. It would really help to make kiz a better place. I get TIRED of everyones sob stories, we all have our own problems.

And if I see one more person ask for a gift card, I am going to SCREAM...give it up! EVERYONE shops at stores like Walmart and Target. Its where most people get like 99.9999 percent of stuff that they need, so PLEASE...no more posting looking for gift cards, especially of that type...you have about a snoballs chance in you know what of getting it, and it gets annoying. The majority of people are struggling at LEAST a little bit right now...keep that in mind.

Just my 2 cents!

Story said...

I am sitting hear thinkin that i wish i would have read this before i wasted money on shipping for kizoodle...

though i have no personal grudges towards anyone there, this blog could have saved me a few hundreds of dollars... i have more points than you can imagine and cant "kiz" anything... yet people seem to swindle there way into getting RAOK and surprise packages in the mail.....

I guess I am not poor enough, white trash enough, or whiny enough to be successful on kizoodle.
