Amigo is not your friend!
“ Amigo Energy is a terrible company to do business with. We were charged $175 for an early termination fee and we are moving to an area they do not service (could not transfer service). Additionally, the switch was initiated by the prospective tenant of the individual we sold our house to. While we were still transitioning from one house to another, they made the switch and Amigo charged me $175. They won't waive the fee because I "did not inform them." That is my point! I didn't inform them! They allowed the switch and charged me $175. Stay away from Amigo...they aren't your friend! ”

Leased a home, had Amigo for the 4.5 years we lived there. Landlord called TXU to transfer service for the first day after my lease ended. And since TXU contacted them before I did, they will not remove the $175 early term fee. I have provided proof that I was moving, and the new address isnt in an area that you can choose your own provider, which they admit is an acceptable reason to cancel and not be charged. Theyre not budging and CS Reps are not helpful - not real sure Im being transferred to a supervisor when I ask for one.
So, use caution if/when you move. ”

Amigo goes from good to bad
“ Amigo has change their prices along with their customers skills. This company went up on the cost and is very hard to talk to them . I got charge over 18 cents a kw and they drew money out of my bank without my permission ( they kept my bank account on file from previous payments). Anyone who decides to go with amigo be aware. I talked to four representative and they all seem to be hard to understand. ”

“ Very disappointed with the plan and costumer service. I started out with a 12 month plan. The rate was very good, but when it was time to renew, I was told that the rate had change but it would not go up very much. My bill had almost doubled and my unit had not been on since the summer. When I call costumer service they will let the phone ring for hours while you listen to a recording. EXTREMELY DIASPPOINTED. ”

12 Year Customer and NO Loyalty
1/2020 - I received a bill for $461.73 for 1 month. They charged me 18.999/kwh! Come to find out, I was being charged that for the past 6mths. Obviously, the 2+ year contract ended, however, I don't look at my bills; just go online and pay them. So, I called today 1/27/20 to see what can be done about this bill and they stated "Nothing can be done about this bill but we can put you back on a plan to reduce the rate." The rep escalated the call to a "retention specialist" who then told me the same thing. In 12 years with them, I never had my electricity turned-off, however, they mentioned the couple of times I was late (guess I'm the only one). Nonetheless, I paid them their last monies they'll get from me after gouging me for 6mths. A company losses a $21,600 revenue stream (avg 150/mth*12yrs) over a 461.73 bill. Nice Job!
**Let me guess - I'm sorry to hear about your recent experience as we value each and every one of our customers. We appreciate the 12 years you chose us as your provider. I would like to get your account information so I can look into your unique situation. blah blah blah** ”

Unbelievable that these crooks are still in business
“ It is unbelievable that these crooks are still in business. They "took over" my service without my knowledge, then charged 4 times market rate. I switched away as soon as I found out, but they were insistent on billing me over $500 for 10 days of service. ”

Amigo promises but cannot seem to get anything right.
1. To start I explicitly asked to be left off the promotions lists ... not hammered with emails, texts and phone calls almost immediately after placing my order.
2. Calling back to get taken off the list I asked to not be a part of, I realized that the customer service number they advertise 888-469-2644 is answered bu what sounds like an old-school fax machine.
3. Of course the bill was sent right on time, but they failed to link my account to the login to their website so I could pay my bill online.
4. During the time that they are trying to figure out how I can pay my bill they want to charge be a "past due fee". ... Not to mention the that they could not get the separation of billing address and service address right!
5. After less than 60 days of service I called and cancelled (calling to cancel was a condition of the contract or get charged a fee).
6. After calling to cancel they tried charge me a fee anyway - despite living up to the language of my contract: "as per the terms of your Agreement, you will be required to pay exit fees, unless you contact us directly." Still wasting my time fighting that!
Thankful to be rid of such a sh*tty provider anyway. ”

“ This company has a pathetic business practice. Their CSRs are not knowledgeable about the plans or rates. One of them just hung up on me. Also, they do not offer affordable energy by any standards. My bill is double what it was with my last provider! ”

Worst company ever -- stay away
“ Will not work with you and they have the highest rates available. Flat fee to cancel is $175.00 the highest I have ever seen. Run from this company. ”

“ I worked for Amigo Energy and it's the worst company I have ever worked as a customer service representative. They dont pay us for the sales and lie to us about how there gonna look into it. It's a lie there not they push us to make sales but at the end we dont get paid. They lie about the plans they offer. So be very careful before you sign up with this company. There plans are not what they seem they are. ”
