I called the number on the "Stop Repair Bills" commercials just to get a quote. I spoke with a male representitive that told me my car would qualify for a warranty at 210k+ miles. He then told me that he might be able to get me a better policy to cover more on my car because i stated nothing was mechanically wrong with it. (which at this point is very true) So, he put me on hold for no more than 2 minutes and comes back stating his supervisor had given the go ahead to put my car on the policy for cars under 200k miles. (he must have talked quickly to relay all that had been said by me) So he says it would be $598 a yr for 5 yrs or $2898 all up front, or a down payment of $295 and $128 a month for 18 months. I told him I had just called for a quote and thanked him for his time. He began with "before you hang up, why not take this today?" I told him i had just paid bills and my debit card was low and i couldn't do it at that time. Then i was told, " hold on and i'll see if i can get that payment lowered and get you started". A second man gets on the phone this time. He explains he's a supervisor and the representitive had explained the situation and wanted him to see what he could do about lowering the deposit. Yet again i told this man i had only called for a quote. After explaining the money situation again he asks "How much do you have?" So i told him $80. He then came back with i can do it today for only $75. I said i'd have to talk to my husband. He said he'd wait. I told him my husband was at work. "then call him..." I tried to explain to him that if i did that he would probly get fired, extended warranties are not an emergency... "Then give me his work number and i'll call him..." WTH?!? I kept telling this guy no but he kept pushing. I told him i'd call back after talking to my husband and just pay the $295 deposit. This was his response, "Well, if you hang up now and don't take this policy then it won't be available later. This is your only chance to take advantage of this." So, i apologized for being rude right before i hung up the phone on him.
Granted car repair bills can be expensive, but by no means have i ever encountered a repair shop that charges $120-190 an hour for labor on the east coast as the second man i spoke with had stated. The Acura dealership near my home only charges $50 an hour. My point is this, I would rather search around for a price that i wanted to pay for future repair bills than give these people any of my money. If they were reputable they wouldn't have to be so pushy or say things like "this is your only chance to get this at all".

    You have over 200, ooo miles on your car, the fact that they were even going to offer you coverage is doing you a favor. I could understand why they wouldn't want you calling back after you had a problem. Furthermore my car is covered through this company for another four years and about 80, 000 miles i've used my policy twice in the past year, on an alternator and a transmission. The transmission would've cost over 2, 000 out of my pocket. My policy was about 3, 000 total and with the intrest free payment plan they've payed more than I have. ALSO I DO NOT PAY A DEDUCTABLE! It sure is strange how everyone wants to talk bad about a company (that they don't even know about), but you never hear the good things.

    Johnnyalden is obviously getting paid by this company. Don't belieave any of the S... he is saying. This companies are always paying people so that they can talk good about them and settle the fury from so many customers that they have done scams to. I also asked for information on this company and a pretty friendly guy gave me a call and said that my warranty coverage would cost me a $295 as down-payment and that after wards I would only have to pay $185 a month for 18 months. I was about to give him my credit card information, but I was unable to find my wallet I told him if he could wait so that I could search it and he did. I looked for it for about 10min. and yup he was still waiting. Then I told him that apparently I couldn't find my wallet. Then he said that it was fine that if I had a check that would work, but I told him I didn't use checks at all. Then he asked me which was my bank. I told him Bank of America and he said he could give them a call and that we could do a three way call that he could just get the account number when they gave it to me...Then all of a sudden that catched my attention...Apparently he really wanted me to buy this no matter what. So I agreed on giving a call to bank of america, but while they had us on wait. I went online pretty quick online and read blogs and posts over stoprepairbills.com and just as I suspected. I found pure negative comments about this company. Such as bad customer service, and not doing what they promise when they give you a that call. Later I found out that someone broke into my appartment and that they had taken my wallet. I only had $140 cash and that all they were able to take from me. Stop repair bills would've taken waaaay more. Someone stealing my wallet was a good thing this time. I ended up saving money.

    Johnnyalden is a DAMN COMPANY SHILL. Don't believe ANYTHING he says.

    They will not pay anything OVER the BLUE BOOK Value of your vehicle, if that!

    It's a SCAM from the start. The script they use is designed to cover their ### legally because they KNOW you will not like what they do to you and will try to reverse the charges. That is the reason why it is so hard to get the charges reversed. The banks and credit card companies are a huge part of the problem. The loan modification and credit card relief companies are among the worst scammers out there. They will scam you for thousands of dollars and you WILL, more than likely, lose your home because they will do nothing to help you!

    If it is advertised on TV or RADIO, or the INTERNET, it is a SCAM!

    When are these people going to realize this???? ALL the "FREE TRIALS, JUST PAY S&H" are operating the same way, no matter which product it is.

    Doesn't anybody ever take the time to Google search a company BEFORE giving out their personal credit info?

    I can't believe how gullible people are these days. It's almost like they were born YESTERDAY, with the intelligence of a baby. You cannot trust ANYTHING OPRAH, Tom Bosley, Rachael Ray, or anybody else advertises! That, sadly, is a fact of life these days.

    DO NOT believe ANYTHING, ANYBODY says or recommends about ANY product or service, on ANY website, on ANY TV or RADIO program or COMMERCIAL. The infomercials you see on TV are the WORST SCAMS ever, They will SCAM you for THOUSANDS of dollars, if you are dumb enough to fall for their GET RICH QUICK lies!

    The PHONY BALONY NAMES these companies use just scream SCAM but apparently some of you STILL can't hear it !!!
    There is NO magic pill for anything!

    Many of these SCAM companies are not based in the USA, but you don't usually know that when you order. SO DON'T ORDER!
    Once you give them your credit info, it is then TOO LATE to change your mind, even if you TELL them you do NOT want to order before you hang up or get off the website! The "free Trial" STARTS the DAY YOU CALL TO ORDER their crap...Not when you RECEIVE the product. They delay shipping it to you so your "FREE TRIAL" has expired BEFORE you even receive their SCAM product. then they start charging your card anything they want because, technically, YOU GAVE THEM PERMISSION TO CHARGE ANYTHING THEY WANT! ALL the "FREE TRIALS, just pay S & H" is set up this exact same way, No matter which products or guarantees or testimonials they may tell you about.

They will promise or Guarantee you anything it takes to get your credit information!

    ALL of the so-called GOOGLE ADS are a complete SCAM, No matter which website you saw it on, Do not believe any so-called testimonial, they are 100% FAKE, PLAYED BY actors. If you don't BELIEVE me, try one or two on this very Complaints Board page, I dare you!!!

    Please read the TERMS OF SERVICE of ANY product carefully before ordering ANYTHING. Stay safe …DON’T order anything from the internet, TV or RADIO. Most of the time, you can't read this until you have given them your credit information and by this time, it's too late! If they want to put you on a recurring monthly charge, or sign you up with some other "FREE TRIAL", STAY AWAY at all costs.

    These recurring monthly charges are hard to win against your credit card and banks because they will argue that you AGREED to the charges. The Scammers KNOW that, also. Your only recourse is to claim that your card(s) were lost and do it THAT DAY, don't wait!

    We are a nation of naive, trusting people thinking we are about to get something for nothing or near nothing.
    All we have to do is freely give our credit information to a voice on the phone we can BARELY understand, or worse, to a scam website we never heard of before. We give out information to them that we would NOT give to our most trusted BEST FRIEND. It's no wonder America and Americans are going to HELL in a hand basket.

    NEVER, EVER RESPOND TO ANY INTERNET AD, TV OR RADIO AD, NO MATTER WHAT THEY PROMISE OR GUARANTEE and no matter which program or website you saw or heard it on. They are all lies. The so-called testimonials are paid actors, NOT REAL, ACTUAL TESTIMONIALS. Their Guarantees are worthless, they mean absolutely nothing.
    Do you REALLY think they would allow a negative testimonial in their commercial?

    Has it ever OCCURRED to you people to try to get these goods or services LOCALLY first? And if you CAN'T get it LOCALLY, you DON'T REALLY need it.

    It looks like almost all the companies, anymore, are getting on the SCAM bandwagon, (Price line, Pro Flowers, SMC, Hotels.com, a lot of the major banks) except possibly the LOCAL ones.
