Sydney is one of the most expensive cities in the world to live, and don’t we know it as home owners/mortgage holders!
Recently I investigated the different gas and electricity companies after buying a new home and needing a gas provider for the 1st time. I have always steered clear of contracts with utility providers, but there are some real incentives out there now, especially for those who lock in to a 2 year contract.
There are also incentives for paying on time and using a direct debit arrangement. So depending on the provider you can save up to 20% depending how you pay, when you pay and how long you sign up for.
What makes this process even easier is websites like iselect.com.au which compares the pricing and terms of all the providers, bundles up packages showing incentives and is a one stop shop of information. In the end after calling a few providers direct and with talk of megajoules and megawatts?! I decided to go with iselect.com.au who stepped me through the different packages available. Iselect.com.au are paid directly by all the utility companies and are paid the same commissions so they don’t steer you towards one provider over another. You can call or do it over the net.
2 days later my gas and electricity was connected and I will be receiving $100 back on my first bill. Just in time for winter…
