Thrifty Propane Reviews

Thrifty Propane kept us waiting

I saw the advertisement from Thrifty Propane about the lower prices for refurbished tank and fill. So, I ordered both from Thrifty Propane in Aug 2015. I was happy about the purchase as the advertised price was low and I thought I would be able to spent entire winter with my order.

When I tried to order, they asked me to pay in advance to make the delivery fastest as there were many orders pending the ones with advance payment would be given priority. I did the payment. However, they also added that the delivery was not possible before September.

I was ready to wait by then. But, the tank and fill never came and the September was about to finish. So, I called the customer centre of Thrifty Propane. With a lot of struggle and long queues, I reached someone live. I told him about the issue and wanted an explanation.

That guy told me that they are facing problems with the shortage of drivers and the latest delivery they can schedule was for 22nd October 2015. He hung up and did not care to know what I had to say. I live with my sister and we both are senior citizens. We did not know what to do and decided to wait until then.

In the meantime, we started using electric heater. I was waiting for 22nd October and it was getting difficult to wait in that cold weather. We also were sick and had to consult doctor for antibiotics.

22nd October came and went and there was no sign of any delivery. I was very upset and felt helpless. I again started trying to contact the customer care number but this time I was not able to reach a live person. However, I was able to reach a representative from the online chat option on their website.

This person informed me that the delivery guy had some personal emergency and is not available and he did not give any date as well. I was frustrated and discussed with my sister.

We decided to contact Better Business Bureau. Maybe they could pressurize Thrifty Propane into making arrangements for our tank and fill delivery. I was not so sure about that decision as well but we had no other option.

I wanted my order delivered at my door otherwise, I wanted my money. We have few savings and nothing much to get another tank and fill from somewhere else. And we wanted the money badly. It was getting difficult every other day to survive in that weather, but Thrifty Propane was not ready to make the delivery or the reimbursement.

They got us with the false advertisement and they never wanted to deliver our order. I am going to try until I get the solution for this. I have spent $1000 till date on the order and my medical expenses which seem nothing to Thrifty Propane.

Thrifty Propane is the worst company I have done business with and I am never going to repeat this mistake.

I wish I had googled about their bad reviews and lawsuits 🙁

  1. Thrifty Propane

    Scam scam scam, please do not deal with this company at all

  2. Best deal.

    I cant give them such low ratings as most i read about. We bought a few reconditioned tanks and gas around 2013 to 2016 for new gas heating systems installed…tanks are well finished plumbing is a bit sloppy but up to code.

    Their prices were much lower than competition in Poconos Pa.There were a few hidden fees and delays but nothing critical.

  3. Pissed Off

    Propane delivered on 7/20/2017 driver decides to just run the truck all over my front yard and parks there so he could be closer to the tank. I guess he did not see the sprinkler system that he ran over. Is this the way this company teaches their drivers on how to fill a customers tank, unbelievable. Called the company and they were just like I can’t belive he did that! Wait until they get the bill for a couple of thousand dollars in damages, can someone smell lawsuit.



  5. No service

    Deliveries never come and no answering phone calls, voice messages, or emails, but they sure know how to send emails.


    OMG If I could give no to negative stars to this company and they way they do business I would. Before ordering, no matter how good a deal that they present, run run run. I am a first time home owner and customer of theirs would ordered for the first time on AUGUST 21st. Yes that is AUG 21st. As of yesterday here is the response from the company was Good Morning Mr. Braccio,

    The delivery has not been made yet. I will contact Dispatch and request a delivery date for you and let you know as soon as I hear back from them. I apologize for any inconvenience.

    Thank you,

    Thrifty Propane

    Here is the response from Sept 14,

    Yes, the order is in the system and should either be delivered today (10pm at the latest) or early next week. I see a note on the account from dispatch.

    Thank you,
    Thrifty Propane

    Rest my case.

  7. Worst Ever

    I bought a tank from Thrifty & was a loyal customer for a few years despite lousy service. I placed an order for a fill on Sept 17th & after a couple of weeks without hearing anything I started calling and having online “chats” with “Christine”. Every time I communicated with them they promised to call back or e-mail back — but never did. Finally over a month had passed since I placed the order – so I cancelled & will buy propane elsewhere from now on. If I could give zero stars I would. This outfit is truly terrible.

  8. Are you kidding me ?

    Most unprofessional staff I have ever had to deal with, need to order from another supplier since the delivery never came, after full payment. Almost out of fuel, cannot reach anyone, they really do not care ? How can these people sleep at night? Wishing a very painful, terminal, untreatable illness on the entire company.

  9. Terrible service. I have purchase PreBuy Propane but they do not come to fill up the tanks. Waiting for 1 month.

  10. Order placed one month ago , guage well into red zone, no propane ever delivered.

    I placed an order about one month ago . My tank was @28%. No delivery has been made despite numerous phone calls, messages left and some assurances that a delivery would come. Tank guage is now 14% with no delivery but more promises from customer service to contact their “dispatch” This company is impossible to deal with. I have no confidence that a delivery will be made before I run out of propane. More contacts with this company results in more lies and run around. I do not recommend this company!

  11. the worst

    hands down the worst business experience of my 68 year old lifetime. do yourself a favor. run away. find another company and avoid the nightmare. how they are allowed to stay in business is beyond me.

  12. Bait and Swich Company

    THIS IS A BAIT AND SWITCH COMPANY…. They are lowest price for a reason, they get your money and then don’t deliver or say they delivered and create bogus delivery tickets. We started buying from them in 2015 prepaid in the summer. We keep all tickets and excellent records. In the past year we have had problems with getting them to deliver and if they do deliver, they don’t fill, only give us a partial fill when we have prepaid credit. We have let our credit reduce and did not prepay this summer because of this. We called over a month ago to get a fill and was informed that our balance was 173.6 gallons less than what we had on record. They are stating they delivered that amount in Spring of 2018, but we have no ticket or record of receiving. We requested a copy of the ticket and it is obvious that someone had just made the ticket up, as the writing is that of a females and ticket is not filled out like any of the 20 other tickets we have that were prepaid deliveries. We have requested multiple times for a gsp tracking receipt and they are unable to supply one. They refuse to credit us the 173.6, nor deliver that last amount. We have called multiple times for Tiffany, she does not return any calls. We were told to call the Ombudsman, tried that and they do not return calls. We have asked for owner and the refuse to supply that information. We are submitting reviews to each and every review site as well as contacting the Attorney Generals Office.

  13. Avoid them unless you only pay for product on delivery

    Generally low prices but avoid like the plague “pre-paying” for anything. Their delivery responsiveness is horrendous and you cannot get anyware when you attempt to call them. Pay only when the product is delivered (or just use a more reputable company)!!!!

  14. Scammers

    Oh my I have no idea how come thrifty propane still in business they are trouble I pay them for gas delivery no gas no money back no answer now I am going to call the police I will not let them to eat my money will sue their ass

  15. Scammers

    Thrifty propane is horrible I wish I could read views before buying gas from them they took my money almost three months ago now they are not delivering up the gas

  16. Don't Be a Sucker

    This company has no soul. This year I had to call the Atty General to get them to act because they denied we had ordered it when we did (adding 12 days to the actual order date) and hung up on me. They told the AG’s office the same story (they recommend doing it by phone — hmmm)). Had I not had proof in my call history, it would have been 5 weeks before they came and delivered the propane that I had long ago paid for. The next time, they came but even though we ordered a complete fill they only delivered 125 gallons to our 500 gallon tank. (Their website says if you don’t order a complete fill, you could be charged a surcharge). Again, this was propane we’d already paid for. Check the BBB, the Atty General’s office, and the other reviewers on any site. This is not an anomaly. See: are out again because of their refusal to give us a complete fill, so again, no heat. This time, our pipes froze and burst.

  17. Thrifty is the worst propane company - beware

    Thrifty has many issues. Unfortunately, I failed to look into thrifty‘s reputation as a propane provider until after I was having repeated problems. If you read about them on the net, you’ll see what I mean. They do not provide a timely service, do not answer or return phone calls, and if you do get a live customer service person, hopefully it isn’t Brad. He is a nasty, rude, obnoxious, snide bastard. Oh, and their promise to be the ‘cheapest’ propane provider: not even close. Not when you add in all their “fees”. Please – don’t use Thrifty, and if you’re considering them as a provider: You have been warned.
