The Super Service Award is the highest honor given to companies by Angie's List. The exclusive recognition is given annually to service companies who have achieved and maintained a superior service rating from our members throughout the past year. There is no fee to accept the award, and members look for Super Service Award winners when making a hiring decision because only about 5% of companies on Angie’s List meet the strict eligibility requirements. Being eligible is an excellent achievement!

I hope this information help! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at We're happy to help!

The rep for Angies list is not being completly truthfull. A company can still be a "Super Service Award Winner" and not be forced to pay Angies List for advertising. However, if a company wants to be listed as "Angies List Gold" the business is forced to pay Angies List for advertising. Seems pretty wrong to me to be forced to pay to receive an award. If a company is earning great reviews- that should be enough.

I, too, had the same question. I don't see a correlation to service quality to being an Angie's List Gold. I read reviews of a handyman service with Fs and Ds that also has the Angie's List Gold emblem. So, my reaction is to pay no attention to the Angie's List Gold emblem at all. I tend to agree with Guest_9400529 posted answer that it's service providers who pay to advertise on Angie's List as "Gold" members.
