Such a waste of money. I paid $5 for 3 days and someone ended up cancelling. Other issues include how someone cannot see your profile or contact you in any way if they do not pay for a subscription as well. Even if you already paid. You can send them a message, but it wont show up for them until they pay. So that makes it much harder to find a roommate or sublet. They will also still email you “new roommate matches” as if that is helpful in any way with all those restrictions.

It isn't real. Signed up for the 19.99 thing, 1 month. The other person ALSO needs to be on a paid plan to respond to you. You literally pay 20 dollars to send messages that will never be responded to unless the other person also pays 20 dollars. This is fraud and deception. Will be contacting the BBB to let them know of this predatory business practice.

Roommate.com is a complete joke and scam. They use fake member names to act as if many people have been successful. A waste of $19.99. Don't waste your money. See all the scam 1 stars.

Do NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! Horrible, Fake accounts. I paid my fee,
No one replies and when the premium expired, suddenly, you get 20 or 30 potential renters , but now you can't read their email because I need to pay again. PLEASE THEY ARE NOT GOOD.

I joined and paid for a month, and made eight inquiries to different offerings. I did not get a single response.
I am not in an area where there are many rooms offered, so that could have been one of the problems, and I am also older than many people looking for a room. Nevertheless, it was disappointing not to have had a single response to any of the inquiries I did make.
Apart from my experience, the site did seem usable, and really, if one had a good chance of being successful, their fee is pretty modest. Of course, for me that is a big IF.
So, while I would suggest that people try the free option, I could not recommend it as a good way to find a roommate. I had more luck with craigslist, a local newspaper, and roomies.com
