Kogan Partner Offer: Switch Your Electricity and Gas Provider with GoSwitch and Receive a $50 Kogan Voucher

40

Just received this in the mail. Kogan is partnering with GOSWITCH to provide savings of up to 30% when you switch energy provider. I"m pretty fed up with energy providers upping their rates within weeks of me switching over so this might finally work out. Plud you get a $50 gift voucher when you switch.

    Sounds like another desperate deal by Kogan. They can't provide customer service or warranty on goods you buy from them why would you trust them with something as important as utilities. You also have to think about your credit rating, if utilities and phone companies do a credit check it completely lowers your credit score. So the more you switch you could actually be doing more harm than good to you and your family's credit standing. Try and get a reasonable deal from a reputable brand first go. Again it's just another layer of problems your potentially adding in with a partner deal. My past experiences with Kogan = No Deal.

      Kogan isn't becoming your utility supplier. GoSwitch are simply giving you a $50 voucher if you switch with them. They are a comparison service like iSelect or Compare The Market.

        '… are simply giving you a $50 voucher'

        No one gives away fiddy clams 'simply' puffs. They'd go broke instantly if they did.

          Sigh.

          Like most comparison websites, GoSwitch will be getting a kick back from the company they sign you up to. Let's say it's $100. They've then made a deal with Kogan to buy $50 vouchers for let's say $40. GoSwitch makes $60 per client. Kogan makes a sale (and they're hoping you spend more than $50 and chip in some of your own money too). Kogan easily recoups the $10 discount through margins. (Almost) everyone is happy.

          You get cheaper electricity and $50 off something from Kogan. GoSwitch make $60. Kogan still makes a profit.

        So whats the story behind this rep? You don't care, or you don't feel you need to care?
        Either way would be good to hear your side rather than publicly belittling them.

        Ahh I see. You lost a court case over a warranty dispute.
        Oh well, better luck next time.

        You'd be better off apologising rather than patronising.

    Lol. Kogan everything. He is a money ducking machine. I don't trust him.

    $75 referral with powershop is a much better 'deal' for electricity IMO

      Free electricity on Saturdays via AGL has worked out very well for us so far (but the deal's only available if you have a 'smart' meter), but I don't know if that deal is still available, and frankly I can't imagine it saving us much more now that the warm weather is kicking back in…

    Thanks for the info, we thinking of switching away so any referral partner perks are worth considering

    It's not worth it. You get a voucher for Kogan, it's not worth it.
