Patient and great customer service
I had switched over light companies and got approved with zero dollars down for a deposit with ambit. Ms. Shekayla was so knowledgeable of everything and helpful. We need more customer service reps/consultants/agents like her thanks ambit for providing me with great service for an affordable price BH from Houston TX

Great service and plans!
I used Ambit Energy when I lived in Dallas and really enjoyed the service I received. I also qualified for theirnfree energy program when I referred 15 people to the service. Now I'm in Austin and can't use the service BUT I was able to get the Free Energy credits transferred to my grandma in Houston who is still an Ambit Energy customer. That's so awesome!

Ambit by far the best

I have been an Ambit Energy customer for two years. They are so customer friendly and so reliable. Their Representatives are on top of things and they make sure I get the best rate with no hassle. The Rep checks rates when they change and gets me the best. No worries about all the advertising gimmicks and bait and switch.

Loyal Customer

I've been a loyal customer for almost 10 years now. I had to switch accounts for my billing. In the switch, I accidentally attempted to pay the bill with my old account. Well, once I found out that I made the mistake, I was charged a late fee, disconnect notice fee, and a returned payment fee....Though these charges were only $57, I have a problem with them not waiving them because of my tenure and loyalty as a good customer. I have a house full and I shell out at times up to $500 a month or more for service. Quite disappointed.

Cancelling your account is a pain

I needed to cancel my account due moving to an area that does not offer ambit. When talking with the agent, she kept asking me why I want to cancel and when I explained that its due to where I was moving and that I have a new electric company, she used my forwarding address to look up to let me know that it is offered in my area (its not per the ambit website). I explained to her again that I want to cancel. She then proceeds to ask what company I am switching to and what rate they are offering. I told her that I do not need to give that information and that I just want to cancel. She said she needed the info to process the account cancellation. I asked to be transferred to someone else and was told that its not possible. I started to get aggravated as all I wanted to do was cancel. 15 minutes to cancel
