  • I wonder why this is WA-specific?

  • Pay on time "discounts" are a late fee tarted up. A 45% discount is an 81% late fee. A ripoff.

    • "A 45% discount is an 81% late fee." ?

      What do you mean?

        He means if your bill is $100, with a 45% discount, your bill is $55. (So $55 is the 'real' price)

        Now imagine if a company was charging an 81% fee for paying 1 day late. ($55 × 81% = $100.) You would not be happy with this late fee. Its all a false economy.

        • That's not how a "late fee" works. If the original price is $100. And you pay $100 then that is a $0 (0%) late fee…

          Instead they offer a discount/incentive to pay on time.

          So it's up to you, if you don't pay on time you don't get a discount. It's also not a false economy given they have a direct debit option.

          And no, I probably wouldn't be happy if I forgot to pay, but then it would be my fault, not AGL.

          • @Tiggrrrrr: Your example describes exactly how a late fee works.

            • @gimmeabreak: I don't know if you are intentionally missing the point or not.
              This special is explicitly stated as "45% off Usage for 2 Years if Pay on Time"
              i.e. If you pay on time you get a 45% discount. If you don't you pay full price.
              That isn't a late fee. It's full price. A late fee is a fee charged on top of the FULL price.

              Your example is like walking into Dominos at 5:01pm and having to pay an extra $0.95 for a value range pizza.
              You know that it's $5 until 5pm. Yet you didn't get there at 5pm.
              Are you going to blame Dominos?

              • @Tiggrrrrr: You are my perfect customer. :)

                You’ll be shaking your head at that comment in confusion, but I’m willing to bet people like T1 will be smirking.

                • @gimmeabreak: The offer isn't confusing despite your apparent inability to comprehend it. Plenty of people have been paying through the nose on standard rates (a large percentage of consumers - google it) due to lack of awareness. T1's comment re late fees is simply ridiculous. The ACCC has had a number of wins against banks and others who have charged late fees not commensurate with costs. You're both living in a fantasy world.

                  • @Possumbly: I dun spell it out fer da jeanuousas.

                    I'll offer you two deals:

                    (1) I'll sell you a widget for $55, if you don't pay now I'll "store" it for you for a $45 storage fee.

                    (2) I'll sell you a widget for $100, you can pay me anytime but if you pay me now you can have it for $55

                    Da gee 2 is a bargain I'll take that, deal 1 is a ripoff

                    It's the same widget mate for $55 today versus $100 tomorrow.

                    Jetstar model versus Qantas model

                    States being banned from levying income tax so they introduce Payroll Tax

                    etc etc.

                    Ignorance really is bliss isn't it.

                    I put up a simple point and you two start setting fire to a couple of by-standing innocent strawmen.

                  • @Possumbly: "The ACCC has had a number of wins against banks and others who have charged late fees not commensurate with costs"

                    That is why they structure it this way.

                    e.g. states banned from levying income tax so they introduce payroll tax.

  • This looks legit.. signed up for my parents thanks OP

  • I signed up to AGL and it didn't take. No idea why.
    You might end up having to call them.

  • account fee is 6.780 cents per day

  • Gas Offer for Seniors: classic case of selling coal to Newcastle.

  • I just noticed this post. That's very expensive gas. I thought WA was supposed to have cheap gas. I pay less than that here in Melbourne, Victoria.

    My rates are 28% Pay on time discount plus 17.5% Pensioner discount making it 1.44375c/MJ (first 100MJ/day), 1.14675c/MJ (next 50MJ/day) then 0.88275c/MJ plus 77c/day with Origin Energy.
