    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.

    Such liars!

    My roommate and I are beyond fed up with Ambit and their lies. Literally EVERY agent tells me something different. One agent said we can pay $50 today Dec 6th and we can pay the past due balance on the 16th (rommate lost their job 2 wks ago and still pending unemployment). So we call today to finalize the arrangements and and now they said we MUST pay by the 14th or it'll be disconnected knowing we lost an income 2 wks ago. They refuse to work with your pay schedule. We're looking to get a lawyer on this scam of a company.
