FREE stuff Now that people have gotten new items for Christmas and some time off from work, many are organizing and getting rid of other items. Freecycle and Craig's List both have listings for free items. It's a great way to find something you can use or list something you can't and avoid throwing more trash in the landfill. A recent search of listings on Craislist had these offerings: a new tv stand, recliner, kid's exersaucer, TV and VCR. To search for items on Freecycle, you have to sign up to become a member. Visit www.craigslist.com or my.freecycle.org.

DirecTV settlement Apparently there were many unhappy customers who filed complaints against DirectTV and its practices. I know my parents weren't too happy about their practices and weren't too happy they had their contract extended after having to get a new box since the old one stopped working.

This excerpt from Cleveland.com sums it up: DirecTV will pay restitution to thousands of consumers to settle charges by 48 states, including Ohio, that it misled consumers about its prices and contract terms. The amount of restitution will be decided based on the number of claims filed with attorneys general since 2007, according to the Ohio attorney general's office. In Ohio alone, more than 1,700 consumers have complained about the satellite television company's practices since that year, Attorney General Richard Cordray said in a release. Consumers who believe they may be eligible for restitution will have 150 days to file complaints with their attorney general's office if they have not done so already. To file your complaint, call 1-800-282-0515 or visit www.SpeakOutOhio.gov.
