Well, we got the bill down from $2900 to $2450 (after the $1000 less). But here is the scoop.
Our home warranty will cover the first $1000 of it. So what Lone Star Plumbing did is this:
Brand X plumbing quote we got: $2200 total. (not using the home warranty)
Lone Star Plumbing quote we got: $4200 total (using the $1000 off = $3200 plus a "special" $300 savings = $2900).
Lone Star is the plumbing company for Allied Home Warranty so we called them in as with the Allied Home Warranty they give you a discount to go with them and their rates are cheaper than the competition. So what Lone Star did is collect an extra $1000 off of Allied and charged us the normal rate (even though we have to neg a low rate).
I fought hard with Lone Star Plumbing to stop the rip-off and they were ready to cut the main water lines, I got them down to as low as I could.
We called Allied up and they didn't care they were being used. Lone Star said they would price match another company if everything was the same (good luck, but we will try).
Lesson learned: We won't be using Lone Star Plumbing ever again, we won't be signing up again with Allied home warranty either.
