Would I recommend Grammarly? NO!

My number one recommendation

In my review, I want to point out some areas of Grammarly’s that strongly needs improvements.

I was introduced to Grammarly’s by an affiliate of Wealthy Affiliate. During a time when I was undergoing heavy pressure from Gmail and some other crucial people to my business. A time when my stress levels separated the relationship between my fingers and my brain. Using a Dictionary then was somewhat useless.

In the beginning, I was told in Grammarly’s invites that it was free. However, fourteen days later I was billed most drastic whit a threat. I never allow that to detour me, I paid with my Credit Card for a premium membership.

Which I found not to be as accurate and trustworthy as the free membership. In April I start to edit a post and I did not found Grammarly’s. Honestly, I had not kept a record of the premium start date.

So I tried to contact Grammarly’s without success, as everywhere on their site where they say contact us was tailored with some questions that do not apply to any likely issues that a user might have.

At first, there was no option to write a comment or anything. So I began to fill out the form with my issues and I did the action four times daily. I always end by saying it is a shame I cannot contact you.

However, my April-May Credit Bill comes with a recurring bill payment from Grammarly’s in the amount of US$139.95.00 OK.  A few days afterward the service resume with a note that reads: Dorcas we miss you so much we hate to see you go.

I have the service May through June, in July the service was disrupted again with some nasty insulative popups. As if no blood runs in my vein. Still, no way to contact Grammarly’s I get back to the signup form and I did my thing there, with a question: how many times must I pay yearly within a year? The service returns with a popup that reads

Thank you, Dorcas, we are glad to have you back.

Now that Gmail logs me out of my email, Grammarly’s must-have found out and made their search. The begins to harassed me with some insulting verbs If they were decent enough for me to contact them could have Screenshot the Credit Card Payment to them but Scammers have strategies

While they have saved me some Dictionary time; I want to get a refund of my money if they refused to resume their service. Or better yet to take court action against them for their misconduct.

They are stressing me to death with their popups and email to my yahoo account. While they are not open to contact. I am presently going through a phase that is not comfortable. Grammarly’s behavior, adds to my discomfort. While I am not saying that Wealthy Affiliate is heaven.

I am saying that if there is a way for Wealthy affiliate to incorporate everything needful for online affiliate business it would be an excellent business adventure. However, I am not sure what can be made possible within the next two decay.

When a company doing business with another company or people, I believe that the next persons’ wellbeing and confidence in the partnership should be highly regarded. Working from home or from wherever you are should not define the quality of service that you rendered to your partners.

Respect should be an easy all-round flow. For everyone involves. How honest is your honesty when you find an easy way to collect people’s money and even if they want to close the deal with you they cannot without their Credit Card expired.

Because you have a recurring billing system to continue to collect but, you do not have an open way of contact for clients or partners to contact you even if what you are selling is garbage.

I am writing this review because I do not want anyone who signs up for Wealthy Affiliate under me to fall into any of this kind of dilemma that I have experienced while on the online journey.

I have not used any other online Spell/Grammar checker, so I would be unreasonable to define all of them to be the same. But for those who might want to save some time when writing, I would advise that you check them out thoroughly before you spend your money.

Many of those who have fallen victim to some of these strange business people can produce a better product than the one that they have fallen victim and suffer loss. It does not have to be a Gramma/spell checker

There are many other so-called businesses out there that we might to add to our affiliate landscape to spruce it up that are designed to deceive and mislead us to destruction instead of production.

We might never know the truth behind it all but one thing is certain, as much as the sun, there will be a day of reconning Yes, a payback day is in the spotlight for everyone.

You do not have to feel discouraged because some online businesses cannot be trusted. Wealthy Affiliate has made its name brilliant in many works from home entrepreneur’s lives to Add yourself to the number.

  1. I am so sorry that you have had such a bad experience with the Grammarly tool. I use it all the time and have found it to be a welcome addition to my writing projects online. In fact, I know that it really saves me a bunch of time and I am only using the free version.

    The paid version is too expensive I think for what you get, so based on your own experience it is likely that I will not upgrade. They do send me a weekly report and it is kind of fun to watch the statistics of how many words, the main errors and etc.

    My eyes are bad, so the spelling correction feature is one that gets most used by myself. Maybe you could try to get the free version again and not tap into the additional features that the paid version offers? I have gotten so dependent on it that I really need it. In any case, best of luck going forward and thanks for your review of Grammarly. 

    1. Hello Dave; thanks for your comment. Your location of residence could be adding a plus to your luck. I was introduced to Grammarly by a fellow Affiliate in good faith. When I apply Grammarly said their service was absolutely free.

      However, after two weeks I got an email from them demanding me to stop using their service or upgrade to a premium membership. because their business does not run by the breeze. The yearly price was much cheaper than monthly. 

      I paid the $US 84.00 as was charged for one year. However, they said that the next year would be more. They have billed my Credit Card for US $139.95 and was paid in full. They must have tried to collect some more and found that the Card had expired June.

      Because in June The stop my service and began to email me some nasty messages. I used the sign-up method to remind them that they have already collected. But they are determined to thief. Being unable to contact me via Gmail, they searched out and found my Yahoo account and inbox me there with their insults. I am not allowing them to wast my time.


  2. Hi!
    Very good review! I have to say I tried Grammarly, the free version, but it wasn’t for me. I just thought I could stick with the Google Docs corrector and that was enough for me. 
    But I didn’t know there were people like you that had to go through this situation. When the company doesn’t have a good customer service, I think that says a lot. I hope people can learn from your experience and don’t buy anything from Grammarly, so I want to thank you for sharing your experience. 



    1. Hello Mariana; thanks for your comment. I had started with Grammarly for free. Two weeks after I started I got an email saying my free time is over. If I want to continue using their service I should upgrade to a premium membership. with an option to pay monthly or a one-time eighty-four dollars for one year. But other years afterward would attract a higher fee. I paid eighty-four dollars. 

      A thank you email was sent to me. I did not make note of the date, so I am not sure if they had billed my Credit Card before time. however, I notice in March there was a change in their performance. I tried to contact them, then but could not. It took a downward turn until I had no service at all but some drastic emails almost every day. 

      My May-June Credit Card bill shows a payment to Grammarly for US $139.95 Comes July the insulative emails begin to flood my inbox again I wrote in the sing up form space that they have billed my Credit Card and collect. What more do they want? they restore the service.

      They must have found out that Gmail blocks my account, they search and found my Yahoo account and start the harassing all over curtailed the service.


  3. Thank you for this Grammarly review as I have been considering using it to assist me when writing content for my online business. I’m glad to have read this review and for the insight into Grammarly. I think too that I will not bother with them and look for an alternative. Once again thank you for the review.

    1. Hello Rina; I am glad that I help you to take a second thought. there are some other Grammar/spell checkers available, if you ask in the chat you should find some others.

      I have to say it is a blessing in the guise when my Credit Card expires in June. or I would not know that they were dishonest people.
