Amazon Home Warranty Home Warranty Review

AHW offers three different home warranty plans for you to ensure peace of mind about your household systems and appliances. The three plans are all reasonably priced, aligning with or below the industry average.

Payout Limitations

AHW Home Warranty does not cover aesthetic flaws or regular upkeep. Certain problems, like rust, corrosion, and collapsed ducts, are not included in the sample contracts, along with several exclusions for each appliance.

While the warranty does encompass kitchen refrigerators and their freezer sections, it omits coverage for components such as racks, shelves, glass elements, lights, handles, doors, seals, hinges, and any other parts not crucial to the primary operation of the refrigerator.

Exclusions

Each plan has a clear list of parts excluded from the home warranty. We recommend you inspect these inclusions before taking out a home warranty with AHW. Additionally, pre-existing conditions are excluded, as is damage through misuse or neglect, rust, corrosion, and Acts of God.

Amazon Home Warranty Review : How to Get Started

We found purchasing an AHW home warranty to be an easy and stress-free process. It took very few steps and less than five minutes to complete the purchase from start to finish.

The first step was simply to enter our zip code on the home page.

Having done this, we had to complete a simple form by entering a few personal details and providing our property information.

Doing so took us through to the plan selection page. We decided to choose the Combo plan to get the most items covered. We didn’t choose to cover any optional items. We hit ‘Continue to Step 3’ where we were taken through to the payment screen.

In total, it took less than five minutes to complete getting an AHW home warranty.

FAQ’s

Is AHW affiliated with Amazon.com?

AHW Home Warranty (formerly Amazon Home Warranty) is not affiliated with Amazon.com.

Does AHW charge a service fee?

Yes, AHW charges a service fee of $75 every time a claim results in a contractor visiting your home.

Does AHW home warranty give me cover immediately?

No, any claims made within the first 30 days of taking out a policy is deemed a pre-existing condition and is not covered under the home warranty.

Customer Support

AHW has a 24/7 customer care line, and you can also contact the company’s customer support team via an online form or email. While AHW’s online customer support reviews are mostly negative, our interaction with the sales representative we spoke to was good. The customer representative told us that a contractor would be in contact with us within 48 hours of informing AHW of an issue. Many online reviews refute this, stating that in many cases, it can be weeks until they are contacted. You can contact AHW through the following channels.

Privacy & Security

There is a detailed Privacy Policy on AHW’s website stating how your personal data is collected, used, and shared. The Policy also declares that you can opt out of communications at any time. We recommend that you read the privacy policy in full to understand your rights regarding how AHW treats your personal data.

In Conclusion

Despite AHW’s chequered history in recent years and the poor service levels described by many online reviews, the company does offer a cheap home warranty. Plus, with a wide range of add-ons available should you have specific items that you wish to be under warranty, we recommend you do your research on AHW before applying for a warranty.

With the drawbacks slightly outweighing the positives, we would not recommend AHW, yet the final decision on obtaining a home warranty is yours to make.
