    It took almost 3 weeks to get a response from Amazon after the initial reporting call. Then it took an additional 3 days to get the repair man on location. The survey letter I received from Bruce wasn’t even addressed to me. I hope you all can do better than this.

    Called Amazon Home Warranty. 9 am with heating unit not working and a very cold house; by 3:30 pm, service call was made and heat restored! J and R Precision Heat and Air is to be commended for quick and accurate service, in the future if needed, I want this company again. High praises go Amazon for quick service and a follow up call to check back with me!

    We were looking to get home warranty coverage for the first time. I had reviewed different companies online without committing to any one company. I received a follow up call the next day from Jesse, a representative from Amazon Home Warranty. He was very courteous and professional. He clarified information about what is exactly covered under the Amazon Home Warranty, and how this compares to other companies. I had a lot of questions and he was very patient answering my questions fully. He worked to get me additional discounts for signing up. After talking with Jesse, I felt very confident in my decision to go with Amazon Home Warranty.

    I bought a home last year and negotiated a 1 year home warranty as part of the deal. The seller picked the warranty and we had a horrible experience with them (AHS) when our AC blower unit died in the middle of summer. As it's time to renew, I shopped around for a more reputable company and found Amazon Home Warranty - so glad I did. Prompt follow up to my inquiry and Eric was both helpful (I had a lot of questions) and friendly during the call. He shopped for discounts proactively and even delayed the start date of my new coverage with AHW to align with the end of my current policy. So far, their customer service is awesome... Thanks!

    Excellent service, very courteous, attentive to my needs. Tim was great, he explained my options and he recommended the best value for me, and how to file a claim, that all I had to do was make a call and that I was not going to be on the phone for 30 minutes like my other warranty was doing, I was driving and I had to pull over and I told him to sign me up.

    I received the most excellent customer service when purchasing my home warranty by telephone, this morning. The agent was able to give me all kinds of incentives for saving money on the premium, which I very much appreciated. I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend this warranty insurance to those who are seeking better prices, incentives for paying early and wanting better service when the need arises.

    In my 39 years of living I’ve never been so pleased with a customer service rep in my life. He was well informed, pleasant and cut straight to the chase. I was sold within the first 35 seconds of the call. He explained everything very well and kept it simple. Exceptional job!

    They cover nothing!!! They find every excuse NOT to cover a claim. I should have called American Home Shield! AMAZON is a total scam!!! I contacted them for plumbing issues and they found every excuse not to cover the problem!!! My house is forty years old so of course stuff is old. The claim scam artist on the other line said the "The pipes were corroded so this has been going on for a long time". As if he were in the house. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS WARRANTY. Stick with the one you know and hear of, American Home Shield.

    Amazon Home Warranty response

    Dear Mr. Napolitani,

    I’m sorry to hear that you are not happy with Amazon Home Warranty. However, you simultaneously opened 3 separate unrelated claims only 2 days into your coverage period. AHW immediately dispatched a service provider for all 3 claims.

    - One of the claims was a covered plumbing issue (plumbing stoppage) which was paid for by Amazon Home Warranty.
    - Another claim was for a leaking copper pipe. The technician indicated that the leaking pipe was corroded and had to be there for quite some time.

    - Lastly, your hot water heater needs to be replaced due to sediment build up. Aside from the fact that AHW does not cover failures that are as a result of sediment build up, based on the information we received it is our professional assessment that this was also a pre-existing issue.

    While I understand your aggravation of having claims that are not covered, the issues were clearly problems that existed prior to your coverage becoming effective and which is therefore specifically excluded as per the terms of your contract which we have posted below for your ease of reference. Should you have any additional concerns please feel free to give us a call at 888-934-0001.

    Sincerely yours,
    Gary Ojeda

    Customer Relations

    I was shopping online for an appliance warranty. I called in with a question and the representative was very helpful. I immediately felt comfortable speaking with Tim. He is very knowledgeable and took the time that I needed to explain in detail with me the options. I purchased a combo plan.

    Jesse ** was a great rep. Happy so far! Seems to have best price and value out of any home warranty company. Paid for 3 years up front but was guaranteed a price lock with no increases. Also, fully transferrable to buyer if property sells. Seems like a great deal! Better than what I was getting with AHS.

He answered all my questions on the different coverages available. He also explained how to start a claim if I need to. I hope I never need it, but I am glad I have it!!

    I purchased this warranty through Amazon because of there reputation and reliability. I did purchase a warranty from a different company and cancelled it before it took effect. I liked how this one had no high pressure salesman. He was very helpful, he explained how it worked and helped me choose the right plan. I will and have recommended this to friends and family.

    Amazon was very responsive in my search for a better home warranty company. I have not had luck with previous companies so I was looking for a fresh start with a better and hopefully more reliable one. I hope this is the right choice. They got back to me quickly and gave very detailed information on the benefits and comprehensive coverage. I was also give a great opportunity for long term coverage and hopefully this will be the start of a lasting relationship. Although I was not given details on how to file the initial claim I was told the process runs smoothly and can be handled in 7-12 hours after the claim in initiated, if this is accurate this will be a substantial improvement over the last company who had dismal results.

    Again I should emphasize this is only a review of the initial process. I will update as I have to, or hopefully don’t have to, go through the claims process. It was just a pleasure to be given a good opportunity to do business with a company that seems to value having customer loyalty and helping them through the process when problems do arrise. Having a home can be stressful enough without having to worry about problems down the road. It is peace of mind if nothing else.

This is the first company that I know of that covers sprinkler systems. I now have a home warranty plan and I am looking forward to during business with this company for years to come. Thanks Sam.

    My agent was quick concise and answered all my questions. The reason I reached out to your company today is because my other warranty company has lots of holes in their coverage. These were not covered when I specifically asked the questions. He did a great job for your company. Please give him some recognition.

I would have liked to had a little more time to go over this but the agent told me that they were busy. Overall it came at the correct time for I just bought this house.

    After signing up with Amazon in January, my tenants called me on Superbowl Sunday saying the heat was out in the rental property. I wasn't expecting to file a claim so early in the year, but Bruce's empathy and customer service were fantastic! Bruce was able to get a technician out the following morning (within twelve hours of placing the initial claims call) and the job was completed within a few days. Bruce called me daily with updates and was an extremely helpful liaison between myself and the repair company. I sincerely hope I don't have to file another claim soon, but if I do, I know I'm in exceptionally good hands.

    I have been with another Home Warranty Company for years and was surprised when they without notice raised deductibles from $75 to $125. After a little research I found Amazon Home Warranty. Upon entering my inquiry, I received a prompt phone call from Ray ** who was not only respectful of my time and informative but very courteous. He explained the options available to me, went over coverage options and helped me finalize my policy. He promptly sent over the coverage documents and let me know how to go about filing a claim. I am quite happy to have made the switch and look forward to continued positive results.

    I spent several frustrating days researching and evaluating Home Warranty Providers, learning that most providers could be rated anywhere from Outstanding to Poor depending on which agency had published the ratings. I spend countless hours trying to narrow my search to two or three top contenders, while trying to determine which rating service I should believe? Then in some obscure place, I saw a reference to Amazon Home Warranty, which was a total shock as I hadn't seen a single reference to an offering through Amazon during hours of research. Just the name prompted me to dig deeper and I was surprised, yet elated, to find the A+ BBB Rating. Further, all customer reviews I found were extremely positive, so much so that I was concerned that customers had been offered some form of incentive to write the reviews.

    The one drawback was I couldn't find it stated anywhere that you provided service in Texas where I live. I called to find out whether you provide service here and also to learn more about your offerings, cost and contract terms. Jesse ** handled my call and I was so impressed by his professionalism, knowledge of your offerings, customer-focused approach as well as your pricing that I purchased a warranty before we even hung up.

    I needed to call Jesse back a few days later but he did not answer the call. Since I was going to be unavailable for a few hours, I didn't leave a message, thinking I would call back upon returning home. Within literally 2-3 minutes, my phone rang and when I answered it, Jesse was on the other end and said "Hello Mr. **, how can I help you"? Holy Smoke, I almost had a Heart Attack. What kind of customer service is that? Not only calling me back without me even leaving a message, but also knowing who he was calling just a few days after I purchased our warranty...both things that were far beyond my expectations.

    All I can say is you folks handle customer service like I was accustomed to seeing many, many years ago. That kind of service seems to have disappeared in today's business environment so I really commend you for how you approach business and the customer. Keep up the great work! While I thought Jesse's handling of my call was unique to him, as I read more reviews, apparently all your sales agents provide this same level of service and care. I'm quite impressed and hope to see the same kind of service and response if and when I file my first claim. Thanks to Amazon Home Warranty for ending a frustrating research project, resulting in a very favorable outcome.

    After researching home warranty plans, I chose Amazon because of their excellent ratings and 5-star reviews. I just placed my order so I haven't had to use it yet, but if the service they provide is even close to the caliber of their customer service, I will be thrilled! Rick ** was a tremendous help -- both times I called him -- and was polite, courteous, and personable. He could teach a course in customer service! My previous home warranty company (whose name shall not be mentioned but whose ratings are 1 out of 5 stars) was a nightmare to work with. At least I didn't pay for it; it was provided by the seller when I bought the house. I can't wait to wash my hands of them!

    The guy that I spoke with was nice and courteous! Was not pushy into selling me a warranty! Best rates for a combination of items. I feel that it was lower priced and the deductible amount was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this to anybody that is looking into adding some coverage to their homes.
