123HelpMe.com is not a paper writing service per se, as you don’t get to hire a writer to craft you a custom essay from scratch according to your instructions. What do you get, then? 123 Help Me is basically an essay storehouse, so you get access to a large database of essays and term papers that you can use as a source of inspiration for your own writing.
The materials students can gain access to through 123 Help Me include essays of all kinds, research papers, speeches and term papers. They are grouped according to general topic, but you can also use the site’s search tool to look for a particular keyword or narrower subject. The papers are color coded to help you get a general idea of the quality level right from the start. For example, the grey ones are free, while orange papers are rated as “good”, but, weirdly enough, in the FAQ section of the website it states that orange is for materials that haven’t been reviewed yet. The yellow essays are rated as “better”, purple is for strong papers, blue is for powerful essays, aqua symbolizes term papers, while green stands for research papers.
Note that, by paying to get access to the site’s resources, you get only that – access. The original writer maintains the intellectual property rights, so you can only use the papers as a research material, not submit them as your own.
123helpme.com seems to have gone through a recent overhaul in terms of pricing policies. A while back, you were charged per paper, according to its color coding – or weren’t charged at all in the case of the grey (or red, before the “facelift”) essays. Now they operate on a subscription basis, so you can’t just buy one single paper, you need to pay for a whole month at least, but you get access to their whole database. Furthermore, we’ve searched the site diligently and simply couldn’t find any free papers anymore. Having used American Civil War as a search term, 300 papers were returned- not a single one was free.
As to the subscription – it’s very expensive. There are three different plans you can choose from. The monthly plan costs $29.95/month, the yearly one is $9.95/month, while if you opt for the middle plan, you pay $59.85 every three months. Although you do get access to all their documents regardless of the plan you subscribe for, it isn’t a good deal if you only need help with an essay or two. Furthermore, be warned that, once you opt for a plan and proceed with the payment, the subscription fees will automatically be renewed once the original term selected ends, unless you explicitly cancel the agreement – with 7 days’ notice!
Discounts and Special Offers
We haven’t been able to find any 123HelpMe discount code or special discounts for loyal customers, but you do get a price reduction if you opt for the longer-term subscription plans.
The quality of the materials is quite debatable. We’ve looked through their papers and, while some were pretty good, others were either poorly structured or badly written, even though their color coding ranked them as higher quality. Furthermore, according to 123HelpMe reviews we’ve found on third-party sites, some essays are only around 10-20 words longer than the free preview provided by the website, and therefore not worth paying for.
Customer support isn’t one of 123HelpMe’s strong points. There’s no phone number listed, no address, and no live chat, which isn’t very encouraging. All you get is an email address you can use if you encounter any problems.

I would say my essay was of good quality, but the price I paid for it was too much. Next time, I will go with a more affordable service.

I had to send my paper for revisions 3 times, after which the chat representative was very rude to me. It is not my fault that your writers cannot understand the guidelines.
In the bunch of the sites with different purposes and similar terms and policies, this site 123helpme.com looks as the really fresh air with the new idea of the helping in paper writing. As the one customer said in the review, the legit of the papers they send you is not questionable and the only you need to do is to use in your writing.
The idea of the offering the papers which are written by somebody else (who knows when that’s happened) and which are already available on the internet seems pretty much clever. Because of that, the site and service can’t be used and explained simply as other sites. They will not provide testimonials because they are not important at all and people actually can’t complain about something which this site didn’t write. 123helpme doesn’t have writers, discount code or other from the list of usual features.
The prices are low or don’t exist. Be honest and say have you expect something like that? That’s possible because they have something which is called Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC) and it will show you if somebody wanted to charge a paper which is already free somewhere on the internet. So, yes, you can get something for free there! Doesn’t that make 123helpme.com amazing?
Well, there is something which is not that great as you may think at first place. The paperwork they offer wasn’t written by them or their writers, so they can send you bad or poor work with questionable quality which can’t be sent back. You’ll get what you see, and in their defense, they give to the customer a short introduction so you can see what is written there. But, after you pay for the whole work, they will give you just a little longer version, so you practically can pay for extra 100 words. That’s not professional, isn’t it?
The support is very awkward and slow, being connected with the e-mail and not chat as we used to see. That means, you send them an e-mail and they will answer to you. Isn’t it a stupid and old way of resolving the problem? And after all, delivery and usability of the paper are not their problems, because, they didn’t write the paper you got, so you don’t have a right to complain about that.
The variety of service at 123helpme.com means the long list of the topics you can research and find what you feel that’s needed or can help you in writing or any other circumstances. If you can’t find the topic you need, you can simply use a keyword research and find what you need. The special offer is a scale of the colors, which show the reliability of the paper you got. Some of the papers are on the internet for a long time without changing, and those will be marked with red color, orange color is for the papers with the many grammar mistakes, yellow with many wrong and not trusted information and the scale finish with the green which shows that the information in the paper is clear and from the trustworthy sites.
Now, something about the money. Being a service which researches the internet for you and doesn’t provide writing of the new and unique papers, 123helpme doesn’t have a price per page as other services. Some of the documents are for free and some are not, but besides that they don’t offer any other free features. With this policy, we just can hope that papers they send are written by professional writers; even it could happen a long time ago.
