American Eagle Outfitters
I am not a frequent American Eagle shopper, I usually only stop in when I need pants. While in this store I really didn't have any real issues. They had a good stock in store on pants styles and sizes which were layer out in an easy to see style/manner. I didn't realize I needed the fitting rooms unlocked so when I walked out I just did a long loud annoying whistle and I seen an employee at the register say something over her headset (probably talking smack on the guy who just whistled) and BAM someone came to unlock a room. So the employees were fast and helpful and quickly informed me of the sale when I first entered the store. Everything I would expect thanks for some new pants AE. My only issue was at checkout. The employee asked my wife if she had a rewards card and she said "no" then was asked if she wanted one to which we replied "no we don't come here that often". At then end of check out before we paid the employee just said ok let me just put this in for you at which point she grabs a rewards card and starts punching on the register asking for my wife's information. When I stopped the employee things just got weird. I don't know if they get rewarded for pushing those cards but damn I felt like I was trying to buy a car. I'm not letting that effect my experience at the store or my review just beware of pushy reward card pushers.

Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
