This is really useful for everyone here and everyone that arrives: any possibility of it becoming a sticky?
I had a visit on the weekend from a rep from Origin (electricity and gas supplier). I am presently with AGL and have three gas and three electricty accounts with them.
I presently receive a 5% discount on my bills.
The offer from Origin was to give me a 12% discount and they would pay the $50 AGL penalty for changing to them. A friend at work was offered a 14% discount from Tru energy.
I gave AGL a call and they increased my discount from the 5% to 10% if I stayed with them. This is a saving of hundreds of Dollars.
Bottom line: It's the same gas or electricity whatever supplier you choose and in Oz you have options.
Make the call to your supplier and tell them you have a better discount option from another supplier.
Then see what increased discount they will give you....
It's possible to save lots of money just by asking for a bigger discount.....the contact numbers are on your accounts.
