Had an electrician come out because my sparks are coming out of my outlet and he said it's because I'm plugging things in too slow! Where's my money was his next question.. Seriously? 5 minutes and 75.00! I called two weeks before contract was up and told them I didn't want it. The customer service clerk was helpful and said not worry, they wouldn't charge my card. I get a new contract in... Read more

American Home Shield complete frauds - $480 a year + $77 co-pay for each service request. This company is dreadful - I bought policy with them years ago to cover major problems with plumbing electrical etc.that might arise but they have never covered any of the major problems I've had. For instance sprarks flying out of my electrical box in kitchen was not covered and was deemed as "safe" not... Read more

My AC went down on weekend. I live in South Florida. By noon, my house was like an oven. I called American Home Shield to be told I had to wait 48 hours since it was a weekend. AHS contract states they will expedite emergency service. It was useless to argue with their agent - she flat out refused to escalate, expedite, or many any efforts to help us find a contractor who could respond... Read more

I had a problem with my AC not cooling. The service tech that came out pushed me to purchase a new unit as soon as I said I wanted mine repair. He said he had to return and collected my out of pocket service fee. I never heard back from him nor his company I then received a call from American home shield letting me know that my repair would not be covered because it appeared to be pre existing. I...

I have had three service calls, not one service was completed without some outragious out of pocket expense from the contractor. The plumber said 380 for a leak. Guess what I am a plumber and fixed the problem in 12 minutes while he was out on the phone smoking one of my ciggerettes and drinking one of my cherry cokes. I don't want to even get into all the other nonsense and countless hours on... Read more

I have just cancelled my contract with #AmericanHomeshield for the SECOND TIME. They brought me back as a customer claiming improved service and contractors, and I have just spent over 2 weeks trying to get a service request completed with them with no satisfaction. Their #contractor came out and left without finishing the job, and for the last week, after at least 5 hours on the phone with... Read more

I have taken the home protection plan 2 years ago. I never requested any service in last 2 years from AHS. First time, I called them for small plumbing problems and they asked me to contact their assigned local plumber. I contacted the plumber who is not organized and with rudeness! In the first instance, I realized that it may be hard to work with that plumber. Then, I called back AHS and... Read more

She verified all my account info... Read more
