California Psychics Reviews

 

California Psychics is one of the most popular and well-known psychic service providers in the United States. Its success comes in part from its strong advertising model, with placements in a wide variety of radio, TV and internet spots. However, the core service model is also quite effective. 

The company has been in business for nearly 20 years as a connector service to help individuals in need find practicing psychics. As one of the first online providers, it has had plenty of time to develop a business model that works. While the website may seem a little old-fashioned in its design, don't let that fool you. It is easy to navigate if you're just looking for a reading, and if you'd like a little more, there's plenty of extra free content.

How It Works

To get a reading on California Psychics, you can either start by setting up a new account, or you can click on "Our Psychics" and browse through the 300+ psychics listed on the site. California Psychics boasts that only 2 out of every 100 applicants are accepted to be professionals with the site, putting its stamp of quality approval on every listed intuitive, medium and psychic.

If you'd like to look around first, you can read your Daily Horoscope, look through practical, insightful posts on the California Psychics blog, or watch videos on how to get the most out of your reading. A helpful FAQ and Glossary section will help you familiarize yourself with vocabulary, payment and site procedures.

Once you've set up your account and are ready to get a reading, scroll through the list of available psychics. At any given time, about 15-25 psychics will be online and available for immediate telephone connection. You can also message a particular psychic if his or her face, name or information calls your attention to set up a future telephone appointment.

You will have to deposit money into an account with California Psychics before you can get a reading. This is standard for most Psychic websites and is to be expected. When you want to buy a reading, you will click through the website next to your chosen professional and fill out a form. The site will give you a 14-digit PIN and direct you to call an 800 number. You will then call that number, dial your PIN, and wait for a prompt. California Psychics will then connect you to the psychic of your choice.

Profiles

California Psychics allows you to look at no-frills mini-profiles as you browse, giving you keywords like "Dream analyst," "Medium," "Clairvoyant" and "Empath" to give you a sense for the psychic's specialties. The mini-profiles also include information about which life areas (Love, Career/Money, Life Path, Deceased Loved Ones, etc.) the psychic is qualified to provide advice. Each mini-profile contains a mouse-over message from the professional describing how he or she approaches the practice.

Finally, a one-word description describes the psychic's general style. This is one of the unique features of California Psychics, focused on user experience and ease of connection. If you feel like speaking with a psychic who will give you straightforward, no-nonsense advice and information, you can choose the "Straightforward" style. If you'd prefer reader with a lighter touch, "Compassionate" may be your style of choice.

If you're intrigued by a particular psychic, you can look at a more comprehensive profile. This will include testimonials from satisfied customers, which will put your mind at ease about his or her abilities.

Cost

Dollars per minute is a key determining factor in psychic websites. While California Psychics is one of the most reliable, highest-quality providers out there, you definitely get what you pay for.

Psychics on California Psychics charge $4.00/minute to $13.00/minute. However, if you're a new customer, certain psychics will offer their services for the extra-low rate of $1.00/minute. This is typically the lower end for a psychic reading anywhere, making it a great value. The only downside is that you may get used to the quality but be unable to pay the higher prices when your "New Customer" status expires.

The website periodically offers deals on deposits. For instance, if you deposit money during your birthday month, you can receive 10 percent off your next reading. Members can also join the Karma Rewards program to receive rewards points toward future readings.

Professionalism

One of the key qualities that elevates California Psychics is the professionalism displayed by its psychics and through its website. Members receive free horoscopes and daily newsletters with helpful, spiritually uplifting advice. All major forms of credit card are accepted as is Paypal, and package deals may provide a greater value if you're willing to purchase more. Please note that everyone who uses California Psychics must be 18 years of age or older.

California Psychics also allows you to switch psychics during the first few minutes of your reading if you are unsatisfied with the way your energies are connecting. This service is provided at no extra charge.

Conclusion

California Psychics was one of the ground-breaking web-based psychic providers and still remains a high-end, high-quality site. Its psychics are all highly vetted and well-trained, and its level of professionalism is as good as anything out there. With easy-to-read profiles and a straightforward payment system, it provides high-quality psychic services if you have the money to pay.
