“ Dont ever use it. They charge for thousands of kwh even though you didnt use it. It is just a scam ”
“ This company charges you for usage that you aren't even using. And try to explain it away. This was the most I have ever paid for electricity living alone in my life. Stay away from this company. Dishonest and crooked... ”
“ I have been a customer at Ambit Energy for almost 2 years and have been living in an apartment. My bill went from $85-$300 dollars. Imy gone majority of the day due to work so my usage is not high, yet my bill is higher and higher each month. I am cancelling. ”
Not what I was actually expecting. First off
Its a HUGE DEAL to me to meet my requirements for yall s service and pay you every month since 2014. I bragged to everybody I know how WONDERFUL YOU ARE. Well not this time ”
“ cut service on at someone elses home while my kids and I are sitting n the dark n still giving me a run around with no lights ”
“ Ambit Energy will scam you out of money. My rates went up 3X because I did not "renew" even though I never cancelled. When I called to ask for clarification, they refused to assist me and charged me 3X what I was paying. This company is a total rip off and should be avoided under any circumstances. I have cancelled this service and will never use them again. ”
To be honest, it is my first time to write a review in my whole life for something. Never choose Ambit. When I moved to Texas from Chicago, I didnt know there are so many electricity providers so, I have to compare them. Because Chicago has different energy system. Anyway, firstly, when I enrolled to ambit energy, they didnt give any EFL and policy documents. This is one more reason I didnt notice that there is early termination fee unlike Chicago. Even, they didnt give any plan options to me, so I didnt know there are many energy plans. Ambit will just choose the most expensive one and just charge to you definitely. Eventually, they dont care of which plan will be the best for your daily life pattern. Surely, they will not try to do it.
Secondly, their meter is totally wrong, and your bill will be much more than what you use. I live in one bed room apartment, and it is about 650 sqrt. I set an electric heating as 73, and turn it off when I go to sleep. But, the usage was 450 kwh, and I got charged $75. After I got this bill, I never turn on the heating and turned off all lights that I dont use. However, the problem was that there was no difference in my usage when I was keep checking on my account. One more thing that made me so mad, when I called to representative, they told me the usage is usual. They did never care of my life pattern, and how I used the electricity. Please keep away from this energy company. Other energy companies will be willing to help you to find the best plans for you, unlike Ambit. Even one star overwork for Ambit. ”
“ Horrrible experience. They dont give you consistent due date it changes without notice. Receive bill couple of days before it says it is due. Seems like its set up to pay more money for reconnection fee or late fee. I never had this experience with light company. The billing is ridiculously high. I hope this help someone. This company feel like scam!!! ”
“ I have been with ambit for 6 yrs and when I began my services the agents were very helpful, knowledgeable and provide great service. Now I feel they all read from a script. They never answer the questions or concerns ASKED! They aren't knowledgeable outside of script in front of them and only revommend what will make the company money! Once my contract is over I will be taking my services elsewhere to be valued as a customer! Agents need to realize we as consumers make the company so if you can't service consumers as a whole the company is doomed! ”
I was repeatedly overcharged by 5-10% each month and have spent at least 3-4 hours on the phone arguing with their Customer Service department over the last several months trying to get the monthly invoices resolved to no avail.
When i finally cancelled the Auto-Pay, my power was disconnected at 3pm on the day prior to the date listed on their "Pending Termination Notice".....and even though I paid their bill within an hour (at 4pm) and called/emailed every contact i could find on their website, they did not get my Power turned back on until the following morning (and refused to cover the cost of my hotel room), which was total BS!!
I moved out of the Apartment last Sunday (2/2/20) and have been calling/emailing to try and cancel their service (unsuccessfully) since Friday (1/31/20)......when i finally got a call back from AMBIT this morning, they told me that it will take 2-3 business days to process my cancellation and that any & all energy usage between now & then would be deducted from my $125 deposit....which leaves me with only one viable response for the Leadership Team at AMBIT Energy....
I haven't been able to subtantiate yet, but it wouldn't suprise me if either Bernie Madoff or Allen Stanford were one of the ket investment stakeholders in this company early on ”
I have been with Amnit now for two years and could not be happier! I have saved 30% over the last two years on my electric bill. Also this is the first time I have gotten a rebate from any company just for referrals of family and friends who would also love a free energy check . This is available to anyone who is a ambit Customer!!
I saved just over 500$ last year just in free energy checks. Ambit Rock ”
“ I have used other suppliers in the past and none have compared to what Ambit has done for me. I have a low fixed rate with no fees, contracts, or other hidden agendas. But the best part is the Free Energy check that I get in the mail every month to pay my supply bill. This company has the BEST pay it forward referral program I've ever seen. I helped my friends save and now Ambit sends me a monthly check! I wont ever go with anyone else! ”
“ After researching I've found that Ambit offers something no other company offers...fixed rates!!!!! That's right you pay the same low price all year long. And with 15 referrals, that sign up, you can receive a rebate check each and every month, month after month as long as you keep 15 people. No one else offers this!!!!!! Find an Ambit Consultant today, get signed up, and stop over paying for your electricity. ”
“ Best rates I've ever had! Friendly staff to help me switch. Explained deregulation thoroughly and sure enough, the bill rate was just as promised. I'll never switch companies! ”
“ My experience has been good since moving to Ambit. ”
“ Always receive quick help and knowledgeable responses ”
I get a free energy credit every month.
No one else gives free energy. Refer 15 and get free energy! ”
“ Have had prices much better than my previous provider. Have been happy with service ”
Ive been a customer for over 2 years and have experienced not one problem with this company. Easy to switch and customer satisfaction is their main objective. Infact I have received an energy credit check every month for my supply just for reccomending them to others. So don't believe the ratings give them an honest chance to lower your electric or gas every month. There are no gimmicks, no contracts or any hidden fees.
Ive been completely satisfied and so have the people I've told. ”
“ When I moved into my new apartment, I was forced to start using Ambit by the apartment complex. It was all very shady - I had to call a "rep" who then gave me an account number and that was about it. No mention of fees, prices, etc. Come to find out, if you do not pay ON YOUR DUE DATE Ambit will automatically issue you a disconnect notice the NEXT DAY and charge a $10 fee, EVEN if you pay the same day the notice is sent out. I just called and talked to 2 different reps and neither one would waive the fee even though I paid the DAY after the due date AND the same day the letter was sent out. I have never had any issue with any other company paying 1 DAY LATE. And in the "contract" which is titled "Welcome Letter," it does not specify that this can happen. The only line item with a clearly labeled timeline is late fees. Buyer beware - unless you are forced like me to use this money-hungry company, look elsewhere!! ”
