How to Sign Up for Angie’s List

We’ve told you a bit about what Angie’s List is, gone over the costs of using the service, and discussed the pros and cons of using Angie’s List (in our previous tutorial).  Now, let’s get started using it!  In this tutorial, we will outline the process for creating an Angie’s List account.


Just a heads-up that some of the services we’re reviewing here have affiliate partnerships with us, so we may earn a commission if you visit one of them and buy something. You can read more about how this works at

To sign up for Angie’s List, you first need to provide them with your email address, a password, and your local ZIP code.  Then, you need to select a subscription tier (basic, plus, or premium) and length.  Finally, you need to pay for your subscription by entering your credit card information.

Let’s break down how to do all of that into easy-to-follow numbered steps, shall we?

To create an Angie’s List account:

  1. Go to in your web browser and click the Join Now button in the top-right corner.

  2. Click in each of the boxes in the sign up form and type in your mailing code, your email address, and a password to protect your account with.  You can also click the check box here to unmark it if you don’t want to receive emails about various discounts and offer on Angie’s List (or leave it marked if you do).  Then click Continue.

  3. On the next screen, you will have to select the length of your subscription to Angie’s List, and which tier of service you want.

    Click the tabs that say Basic, Plus, and Premium to cycle through the different tiers of Angie’s List service.  Then, click one of the buttons beside a time period and rate to set your subscription to Angie’s List for that amount of time (and pay that amount of money during each period).

    If you have a promotional code for Angie’s List, click in the box labelled “Promo Code” and type it in, and then click Apply.  Once you’ve got everything sorted out, click Next.

  4. The last part of signing up for Angie’s List is entering your billing information.  There are two sets of information that you need to fill in, so we’ll split this part into two steps.

    The first step is deciding how you wish to pay for your Angie’s List subscription.  Click the button beside “Credit Card” if you wish to pay by credit card, or click the button beside “PayPal” if you wish to use the online transaction service PayPal

    If you choose to use PayPal, click the check box that appears to say that you agree to the rules of Angie’s List.  Then, click the PayPal: Click Here to Pay button and follow our How to Pay with PayPal tutorial from step 3 onwards (skipping the rest of this step and the next).  As a bonus, Angie’s List will discount your membership fee by 20%!
