Original review Feb 15, 2024

First Premier Home Warranty ("FPHW") uses 3 different policies in their BAIT AND SWITCH operation to entice you to buy their warranty.

When we inquired about buying a policy, FPHW sent us a 6 page policy to review--it looked great so we paid them over $2691 on 4 policies for 4 different homes. We have had only 2 claims - a broken pool pump in June 2023 and a bathtub valve plumbing leak in Feb 24.

FPHW has never paid for either claim although the 6 page policy says these items are covered!

Upon speaking with the FPHW contractor who was sent by FPHW for the broken pool pump, contractor said he sent the estimate to fix it of $690 to FPHW but never heard anything back from FPHW. FPHW lied and told us the contractor had never contacted FPHW (We know FPHW lied because we saw the email the contractor sent to FPHW) Nine months have gone by and we never have received any reimbursement from FPHW, although we paid $1800 for the repair and we provided our invoice to FPHW nine months ago. We then had a plumbing leak, FPHW sent a contractor out, that contractor did not fix the leak, although our policy states bathtub valves were covered. FPHW said the bathtub valve was not covered.

Our own contractor fixed the leak. It was then we discovered FPHW ritually uses 3 different policies in a BAIT and SWITCH operation to entice you to pay for a policy. After we exposed the fact we knew about the BAIT and SWITCH FPHW offered us $250 for the pool pump repair, but only would pay that amount if we would agree not to cancel our policy. We declined.

Then FPHW offered $500 but with the same requirement that we could not cancel our policy. We declined.

We have asked for a full refund of our money due to the fact that FHPW deceitfully sold us a policy we had not approved first.

They use a 6 page policy, a 12 page policy to entice you to pay, but the real policy is 19 pages long and full of 25 NOT COVERED paragraphs and 4 pages of 'we aren't liable, does not cover' paragrpahs AND even states you cannot join a class action suit against FPHW.

Wonder why they are so worried that they have to put this into a contract?

Their cancellation policy in the 19 page policy is not the same as the 12 page policy.

Everything about FPHW is a FRAUD. STAY AWAY

(included here are pictures of some of the pages from the 19 page policy no one in their right mind would ever buy)

Lies, lies, lies

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

My "welcome letter" said they are here for you 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year. I called on Friday, December 23, 2022 at 3:30pm about my toilet not working and probably needing a new ballcock.

When I did finally make contact with someone there they said it could take 24--48 hours before someone got back to me with a plumber's number for me to call. Nothing balance of Friday, nothing Saturday, nothing Sunday. Today Monday, December 26, 2022 I get an email with a plumber's name, number and email. At 8:00am I called.

Left message. At 9:30am I called First Premier and the mane said he would expedite a request for another plumber.

Been emailing back and forth since then and am told now it will take 24-48 hours. I figure from Friday 3:30pm to now Monday 12:15pm it is almost 72 hours.Find anot

Refund Request

First Premier Home Warranty - Refund Request

I filed a claim #3771 with First Premier Home Warranty July 5, 2022. The policy # is 45760.

I paid a premium $412 in August 2021.

I want my $412 refunded to me ASAP because of the terrible experience with the First Premium Home Warranty. I filed a claim for my LG Above Stove Microwave with First Premier Home Warranty July 5, 2022. I paid $50 for a service contractor to come out.

The contractor said that Microwave could be fixed, but I would be very expensive, and advised a replacement. I was impossible to reach anybody.

I talked to Mike, the claim department manager, but he was not helpful . Joe Mitchel, Senior Account Executive , was not helpful either.

Finally, last week, First Premier Home Warranty said that they were going to give me only $91.76 towards a microwave, because it was too old. I can't replace an above stove microwave for $91... I purchased this warranty because I am a new homeowner.

Todd Pearson, a claim rep, said they are very generous...Not really??

I didn't have a working microwave for 45 days. First Premier Home Warranty didn't commit to help me and didn't try to resolve the problem, therefore I would like my $412 refund ASAP

User's recommendation: Don't buy it!!!
