    I purchased a 2 year home warranty for $678 and paid in full to get the best discount. I've attempted to contact them and cannot reach them at all. My debit card financial institution said a claim has to be made within 90 days so my money is lost.

    I have recently purchased the service from American warranty. Anyway I was unlucky enough to have 2 items broken down one after the other... my wife was happy once she remembered about the warranty purchase. Of course The first item wasn't cover (water softener) even though it was offer on the sale pitch and recheck before the agreement.

    2nd item (refrigerator)... someone stop by, look at it and call me days after saying the warranty place do not want to pay for it. The company only want to send a 200 dollars check to cover the fixing on my own. Of course by then I was furious after 300 + payments 2 broken items... softener not included and a 1400 refrigerator. They just want to give me a 200 check and hope that I'm happy about it... I don't know about you but I will think twice before agreeing with any new contracts.

    I bought a warranty back in March for 600.00. Never received a policy, when trying to call twice, once to get a policy and second to get a claim filed, no one answered on either call. Didn't matter what time of day. They are not a good company to work with, they might just take all your money and leave you in the dust.

    Purchased a policy from this company in February 2017. I have never received my policy. I called back about two weeks later, and nobody answered the phone despite the representation on their website that someone would answer the phone 24/7. I filled out the form to have someone contact me to purchase a policy, and received a callback within the hour. The representative told me he could not help me, that he was in "sales." For the past week and a half, I've been unable to get anyone on the phone at the number listed on their website. I'm currently disputing the charge of $550 on my credit card.

    I live abroad and have a few homes that I rent out in Florida. Although I have a management team, I purchased coverage for all the homes. And thank goodness I did! I had one of the homes' ac go out and needed replacement in the middle of July and everyone knows how Florida is at that time of year. American General came and replaced the unit within 2 days. Can't begin to tell you how happy I am knowing I have a company like them especially because I am always traveling for business. Will definitely recommend American General Warranty!

    Our most recent experience with American General was having a technician have to come back to the house to fix the lack of cool air coming from our air conditioning. The repair guy determined the unit had a issue with compressor. I called American General to ask them what to do. While still on the phone with them, within 15 min, I got an approval to replace the entire compressor at no extra cost to me besides for the 45 dollars I paid for my service call.

    In extremely warm weather, the repair guy worked hard and long to repair the unit. He was soo nice. He realised that my husband and I with our newborn and 2 girls needed a cool house right away. After like 6 hours He had to leave for 2 hours or so to pick up his kid from school, he asked if we would mind he would be right back! Sure enough with a smile he came back the same day fixed our whole unit. The whole time he was nice and very professional. He cleaned up after himself and was very gracious for the bottled water we gave him.

    I was so so surprised, shocked and grateful to him and American general for really standing up to the plate and going to bat for us and making it look so easy throughout the whole process. I can even imagine having to pay for all that out of pocket for the repair right now with the holidays coming. All I paid was my service fee! Glad I had them doesn't quite cut it. They were godsend. I can't say enough good things about them and their staff! I will definitely be sending them a holiday card. :) Thank you guys so much for really caring. :) God bless you and I hope you can bring the same holiday joy to others just like you did with us. Thank you American general. :)

    I have 2 investment properties that needed coverage. I contacted American General and was surprised how comfortable I felt speaking with the representative. He was very informative and he found a plan that fits my needs. I got the Combo package which covers most of the items in the property as well as the pool. He wasn't a typical sales guy ‘cause he wasn't pushy, unlike some of the other companies I have called. If you ask me, It didn't sound like he was working on commission. So I chose American General Warranty because they made me feel like they actually cared for my concerns and I'm confident I made the right choice.

    I recently placed a service call for my fridge and the process was simple and quick. Took less than 48 hours to get a repair guy out to me. The customer service rep was very nice and friendly and the best part about it was it was not time-consuming. I am a busy man and it only took 3 minutes from when I called to put the claim in. I already referred a couple of friends. Keep it up American General!
