1. Site overview
SPOILER: Edusson.com = Edubirdie.com
Now when you know that these are two sites belonging to one company, you would probably say, what is the purpose of this Edu birdie review? Let me just go through the birdie site really quick and tell you if they differ from Edusson or not.
The landing page is pretty similar to Edusson – this “leave your email and place an order” type of uninformative landings. Below you can simply compare them both and try to tell the difference between the sites.
Among the useful features, I can name the mobile app for the iPhone. Sorry, Android guys, but you will have to use your computer.
The final grade for the user interface and simplicity of the site will be 3.5 out of 5. The site lacks crucial info like a pricing table, calculator, and samples. Unlike Edusson, they do have Edubirdie plagiarism detect tool, which is more of a marketing thing.
2. Customer support
Both Edubirdie and Edusson have the same support. You can read the whole story about support in my Edusson review. To make a long story short, they sometimes may be quite vague about some things they would rather not discuss with the customers (i.e. service location or country of their writers’ origin).
The email support is pretty quick but expect to be bombarded with tens of emails bearing no informational value.
3. My experience
Does Edubirdie actually work? My previous experience with Edusson was a disaster. I got caught at plagiarism and was on a verge of ending the course with a zero grade. Thank God, I have good relationships with my teacher who allowed me to pass. I decided to give Edubirdie another chance to prove they are not the bullshit service I used to describe them in my previous review.
This time I was prepared for any sort of tricks and surprises. I bought an account at WriteCheck in advance to ensure the paper is 100% clean. The paper was on a simple topic on Literature (about the protagonist’s personality in the Catcher in the Rye) and it cost me $74 for 2 pages. Let’s be honest, that’s the hell a lot of money for a service like theirs.
Basically, they charge you more than regular writing services where support does everything for you. Here you need to spend your time picking the writer and answering at least ten chats from applicants. This time the paper was close to being acceptable. When I say acceptable, it’s not good, it’s not great, it’s the minimum quality I can take and do my own revision on it.
The writer was obviously a non-native speaker and most likely he found out about The Catcher in the Rye while chatting with me and offering his bid. This time my experience was way better, I got a B, but the value delivered by a service is still below my expectations.
4. Order form
EduBirdie has a simple and intuitive order form. Once you fill it out, you can pick the writer’s quality. They offer 3 different types of writers:
- Standard writer for the base price
- Premium writer for the additional 10%. According to the description, this is a person with at least a Bachelor’s degree (meaning that a Standard writer may not even have a degree) and 80% success rate. I have no idea what their success rate means, so I tend to believe it’s another rip off without any value to the customer
- Platinum quality will be another 15% on top. The writer will have at least a Master’s degree, 90% success rate and at least 30 orders completed.
- For $9.99 they will pick the writer for you. Are you kidding me? I paid over $35 per page on an easy assignment and you want me to add 10 bucks on top for you to press button “Assign”? Like my favorite singer, Andy Samberg said, “put this garbage in another man’s face”
- For $32.25 you will be getting a 1-page abstract. Must be fucking kidding me? This is the most expensive abstract I’ve ever seen. An abstract needs to be around 150 words, why would I need to pay this much for a work that takes 5 minutes? Don’t purchase it!
- VIP support will be $12.99. Some garbage they give you for free when you place many orders with them.
- Progressive delivery will cost you $8.99. Maybe a good option for big orders, although I would never place orders more than 3 pages with them.
- Essay outline for $32.25? Go fuck yourself, please!
5. Discounts and pricing
No comments here, just check the chat. They don’t have any discounts and would offer you some useless crap for free to keep the price higher for you.
Prices on Edubirdie are really high. You won’t find a clear table with prices per single page. You will know the price only after placing an order.
To find the answer to the question “Is Edubirdie safe?”, let’s check the company’s guarantees. They have an unlimited number of revisions, that’s all I know. EduBirdie has a shady Revision and Money Back Guarantee. Don’t trust their 100% MBG. It only means that you may get your refund in those rare cases covered by their policy (your case won’t be covered, relax!)
7. Final quality
The final quality was mediocre. The writer has no idea what he was writing about and definitely, he has not read the book.
I definitely believe that this guy read the book many times. This is such a lame approach just to tell customers what they want to hear.
8. Writer’s proficiency
EduBirdie’s writers are not who they are claimed to be. Just read the chat above – the guy seriously claims that he has a Ph.D. in Literature to write me a college-level 2-page essay on the Catcher in the Rye. WFT dude? I don’t need a Ph.D. to do this paper.
Another writer has not even read my assignment details but definitely tried to do Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V to paste his “application template”
During another chat the writer told me that he is working from Edusson.com.
So, if you didn’t like the quality of papers ordered on Edusson, stay out from the Edubirdie website. They have the same ghostwriters who will create shit papers on various topics.
9. People talking
I believe that EduBirdie was launched with the only purpose – to get rid of all bad reputation Edusson has. If you check the online feedbacks for Edusson, you will see a disaster – ⅔ of all reviews are bad.
Birdie has somewhat better reviews:
But the tendency is quite pitiful:
Edubirdie Reddit reviews were negative too. A lot of learners said papers ordered on the platform were a real shit.
No matter how many times they re-open the same type of service, they will keep getting bad feedback. Is Edubirdie scam? Well, I have serious doubts whether their actions are not considered as fraud.
10. Loyalty program
No loyalty program. They will give you VIP support for free after your first order.
11. Pros and Cons
To summarize, the EduBirdie/Edusson business model is not working well. Is Edubirdie cheating? They are expensive, they lie about the quality of writers, they have shady policies and high prices. They try to rip you off at every step of the order and at the same time they don’t even have a discount policy.
- Mobile app.
- Adequate support.
- High prices.
- Terrible online reputation.
- No loyalty program.
- Mediocre quality.
