Round 31: Chase vs United Healthcare

This is Round 31 in our Worst Company in America contest, Chase vs United Healthcare. Vote which sucks more, inside…

Here’s what our readers said when they nominated these two companies:

“Nothing about their credit cards is good. They are legalized loan sharks.”
“They like to play musical payment-due-dates.”
“raises rates without notice, etc.”
“I got a credit card with them that was supposed to be 0% interest. The first time I carried over a balance they charged me interest. And than I have received no end to the special offers that they offer through their card. They are the most annoying credit card company out there.”
“Their customer service sucks, they abuse their employees and they are one of the big four behind the Payday Loan industry.”
“I’ve been through hell with Chase credit services”

United Health Care:
“Ruining people’s lives and/or killing them”
“Their service is abysmal, and they’re currently being sued for it. They intentionally underpay both medical providers and consumers.”
“All their employees upstairs got to the cafeteria before I did (at 11:55) and bought up all the Chicken Parm Rotellos for lunch. I really wanted one… I had to settle for crappy pizza.”
“Any company in the business of letting people die is a bad one.”
“operate on “screw the customer” as their guiding principle. United Health also offers the additional service of making life miserable for actual health care providers.”
“absolute bottom of the pile insurance company.”
