Everything from the 15% ultimate discount to the reviews and samples on Academized.com seems perfect, but this wouldn’t be a trustworthy review website unless we did our own research and dug deeper. That’s when the truth tends to come out to surface, which is exactly what happened here.
When we saw what others think and say about Academized, we started noticing that this might not be as perfect as it looks. They mentioned delays in delivery, plagiarized or bad work, even rude support in some cases. It raised a red flag immediately, so we proceeded with the research immediately.
List of Services
Services are separated and listed in different categories and there are many of them. This looks ideal for everyone because they offer help to everyone. What remains a concern at this point is that most comments from the high level students don’t fit the promises of top-notch papers or great rates, meaning that the list might have yielded more success for Academized if they limited it to what their writers are actually experienced in.
Why do we say this? We say it because many of the troubles with the company’s writing have to do with writers not following instructions or papers not looking as they should look despite the quality research or fine writing.
Academized prices are not at all burning students’ pockets. In fact, we can’t even say that they make you spend enough money for what’s promised, which in our experience is another red flag. Here are some examples to look at to see what we mean:
- A high school essay within two weeks costs $12.99 for a page
- A junior of 3rd year can get an essay at $16.55 per page within one week
- A PhD student can get his dissertation at $12.99 for a page within a deadline of 2 months
- An e-cover letter costs only $4.99
Some prices are more realistic than these ones like, for example, those of resume services. A full package costs $164.95 within five days, which correlates to prices you’ll find in resume services. But except for the resume services, everything is cheaper than the expected, including the dissertation writing pricing.
Interestingly, the resume service is exactly the one with the lowest reputation for Academized, so we don’t quite understand why they’d place this in a list of services that students use or set such pricing for it.
Discounts and additional features
We’ve already mentioned one of the discounts – the 15% discount called an ultimate discount. This one is only for new customers and came fully unexpected to us after seeing the prices they offer. With it, the price becomes not low, but too strange for writing from scratch services, which is exactly what it is for.
There’s a whole other page for discounts that tells you about the rest of the offers Academized has. The loyalty program applies to those who order more than once that, from what we can judge by the comments, is not much of the students who tried the service. Here is what it comprises of:
- 5% life-time discount after 15 pages ordered
- 10% life-time discount after 50 pages ordered
- 15% life-time discount after 100 pages ordered
The criteria aren’t high at all, meaning that the only person who will be paying the cheap original rates we mentioned and gave examples for are those who have made their first order but still haven’t ordered 15 pages. This is probably a very low number, which eventually beats the entire purpose of the Prices page after all.
One of the features you will see on Academized.com is the one with the plagiarism report. We don’t recommend relying too much on this one because many say that the reports aren’t real and they have found plagiarism by using other detection software. Other than that, there are some free features that are said to have affected the rates in the first place, such as free amendments, title page, outline, bibliography, formatting, and of course, the plagiarism report.
All of these are very common except for the report and can be found on almost every writing service website we have looked at.
