The ambit opportunity is legitimate. Its a business you must commit to. You cant try the business, you try on a shoe not a business. I'm a landlord and former financial advisor, I have all my tenants on the service. It does take time to build, any business does. But at least give yourself a shot. I wouldn't be a millionaire today if i listened to what other people said. Be in control of your own... Read more

A friend of my daughter's got involved with Ambit and was moving up the ranks quickly. Because my daughter was having money issues I agreed to let her friends sponsor come to the house to do the spiel and had a list of questions ready. The guy who was leading was a county sheriff and told us he was only keeping his job because of the benefits. He was already making more money at ambit part... Read more

Bait and switch marketing promises % savings off your bill - that gets you in the door and unless you read everything they send you you don't realize you have to sign a contract to keep your rates low. After a couple months, they jack up your rates to double what your utility would charge. Their business plan is relying on the fact that most people don't have time to look at their Kwh rates on...

Had service for over a year....paperless bill. Never missed one payment time. Fast forward to 09/18/2014 invoice is current. Due date 10/06. I was disconnected on the 20th. 14 days after due date. Seriously? No alert no email, no warning whatsoever. 14 days late. When confronted, the agent told me to check the website for my disconnect notice. You have GOT to be kidding me. Although...

I was told by the person that sponsored me that I can absolutely turn over 8 different commercial accounts. I gave them all the info on the accounts beforehand. After paying $425 to join, only my personal resident account was switched and then Ambit told me I couldn't turn over the commercial accounts at all. I would have never joined in the first place and was misled, misinformed, and just... Read more

AMBIT is a company with very deceptive practices . They get consultants to lure their friends and family to sign up , promising a 1% savings over local provider. What they don't tell you is that you have renew every year to stay in the savings plan. Our consultant had no idea about this and so we never renewed. Now for last 18 months I've been getting ripped off. Wasn't suspicious til this past... Read more

They save you money initially, and they slowly rip you off month by month until you wonder why you are paying so much. I ended up paying 3 time more than the market price and my my local company, RG&E charges. I called my local RG&E rep, and she went through my bill for gas and electric. For both, I had been paying 3 time the going rate. In total, I've been overpaying about $700-1000... Read more

We were solicited by a neighbor/friend in 2012 to change our electricity provider to Ambit. We saved about 2% for the first months. We are seasonal residents at this address, and noticed a significant increase to our bill in July of 2014. It took us 2 1/2 months to switch back to our local provider. In a 3 month period our bils were over $150 more than the local provider! The ambit enery cost is... Read more

We were recruited to switch to Ambit in 2011 by a friend. The first year we saved $25. In subsequent years we never received anything saying how much we actually saved. I just logged into an ESCO calculator and last year we overpaid $260! I called Ambit and they said my contract was for one year and since we never re-signed we moved to a higher rate. I explained that I never received a notice... Read more
