    Is energy Australia any good? Just moved here and I'm looking for a good deal. Is there a minimum time period i have to start with them for the cashback to work?

  •  

    damn WA only has one electricity provider. No competition no discount

    Signed up with these guys in December last year because they compared well (Qld) - fast forward to january, received an email that their solar feed-in tarif is being reduced from 14c to 11c. Dont think they are they're as good as others, but CBF at moment to run a comparison.

    Will be moving to another provider

    • +6 votes

      Definitely worth changing, AGL offering 17c in QLD

      •  

        Is that the solar power plan where they charge you a higher rate for usage ?

        •  

          Yes. Compare your feed in versus usage. For me, I feed in a lot (5.5kw system) and AGL still came out on top over everyone else.

      •  

        Was thinking of moving to AGL(currently w/Energey Australia) looking at these messages but saw this!
        AGL charges Solar metering charge 7.700 cents/day
        Which means 9.3c/day essentially? Do you know if Energy Australia charges any metering charge? I can't find anything on their website or in last statement

      •  

        Be very careful with that mob. Their predecessor Click Energy kept jacking prices and i wasn’t watching it carefully. By the end of it my bills were over $900/qtr when almost every other provider would have been only $600.

    I havent got mine from Dec

    Can get agl $100 gas and $100 electricity online instead of the $75 each via the online chat. They will send you the link on the chat. Don't know if I got lucky or normal practice.

    I was with Energy Australia earlier, but I found ReAmped Energy to be much cheaper: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/475414

    • +2 votes

      Same, even with Energy Australia's '25% pay on time discount' that I previously had, my new provider has been far cheaper.

      When I called up to negotiate a better deal/rates before switching away from EA the call centre people said my current plan was 'so good' they couldn't do better or even offer it to new customers, what BS

      My advice is to take this EnergyAustralia Cashback then look at switching to a cheaper electricity provider in a few months

    •  

      No good for those with a heap of solar feed in unfortunately

    I have 2 properties, one with them and the other with Origin. Switched the Origin one to them in Dec but cashback never tracked.

      Yep and because it’s later than 60 days they don’t even let you open a claim!

      If they're gonna be a foreign owned, tax dodging parasite in Australia can't they at least offer properly competitive electricity plans for consumers? Or is it still not enough, so they have screw their customers on top of that as well

      Take the cashback and run ASAP

      I have gas connection with them. Since 3 F***g years. Surely time to move. These are next level parasites.

      Picking the top revenue line is an obvious way to sensationalise the author's view point - unfortunately this kind of low quality journalism sells well to the less-informed public. A bit like how people wonder about what sort of constituencies get Trump elected. The profit margin is in fact much less than the revenue after passing part of the revenue to the distribution networks and then the cost of running the power plants - and for many years it can actually make losses that were carried forward.

      EnergyAustralia didn't have to pay much tax reflects its owner overpaid for the retailer and the two associated powerstations during the NSW electricity privatisation around year 2010. Essentially the new owner struggled to make profit to cover for what it paid to the NSW government.

        Thanks for patronising us, but most people understand that taxes are paid on profits, thank you very much. It is the sneaky schemes these companies use to artificially minimise the profits, such as overseas debt loading at inflated rates or questionable royalty payments to a foreign entity and many more. But nice try to discredit the article. Let me guess, you work for one of the Big Four audit firms, the scum who facilitate all these schemes?

        •  

          No I am no accountant and share the same disgust over the use of tax havens and accounting tricks in profit transfer.

          Does anyone have evidence that Energy Australia actually used those tricks to shift profit to its owner? My point being that it's possible for some companies (that don't engage in accounting trickery) to not pay much tax over a period of time if they lost money over the prior years. It's much too convenient for people to write articles like this and just cherry pick a few years to financial results without considering the preceding years. Yes it generates some ad revenue for the writer but just because ppl like reading it doesn't mean it's right.

          I drive a secondhand Japanese car and do my own oil change. Thanks.

    How do you negotiate your discount if you sign up online? You would lose more than you would gain in cashback by not negotiating the discount.
    Same applies for reward point bonuses for sign ons to energy plans. Or Companies that only reward you if you sign up to a particular plan
    It’s a trap!

  •  

    How long do you have to remain a customer to get the cash back? Selling soon. (I don't care about the 6 month delay getting it, just my eligibility to get it)

    Tracking takes 14 days, so does that mean hang around until it's tracked then switch?

  • +1 vote

    I signed up via cashrewards a few days ago, and there's no sign of it tracking, despite it recording a click out, and a cashrewards specific banner/page being displayed on the energy Australia website… Hopefully it appears, but not a good one to miss if it didn't track properly.

    • +1 vote

      Be careful with this, as per my comment below, mine from half a year ago still hasn’t tracked…

  •  

    I hated them … they always gave me a good rate in the first year and then increased it over time …

    • +2 votes

      I think that's the general theme in many industries. I am thinking telcos and private health insurance. The only way is to be diligent to change the provider every year.

    •  

      i saw some new policy coming up on Dan Andrew's page saying soon they'll only be allowed to increase once a year, and to make it clear when they do

      Origin Energy are exactly the same, but also frustrating to deal with:
      * Was with Origin Energy in 2018.
      * Then in 2019 compared on https://wattever.com.au/ (very handy site, much clearer/more comprehensive/better than the government Energy Made Easy site, highly recommended if you have a recent bill [just need number of days and total kWh usage], and no, I'm not affiliated with it in any way).
      * Found that "AGL Essentials" were the close to the cheapest for my postcode + single charge meter + electricity usage + gas usage, but without any weird conditions (e.g. the very cheapest required me to join the Geelong cats football club … WTF?!)
      * Called Origin's general number, and they said they could not do any better than AGL, asked them straight out if there was any reason to stay with them if they were more expensive, and was straight out told there was no reason to stay with them, so I said "fine, I'll change provider".
      * Switched to AGL, got a $75 credit on both gas & electricity + some fly-buys points.
      * Then a few months later got a call from Origin Energy's "retentions team", offering me a decent rate (better than I was on with AGL), plus the same credit as AGL. The person I spoke to also gave me their direct number to call in 1 year's time when my rate ended.
      * So I got bonuses from AGL, and after the first bill switched back to Origin, and got the bonuses from them and the good rate. So all good.
      * 12 months pass, plan is about to end in 3 weeks. The 2020 rate Origin are going to move to me is utter rubbish, would cost $460 more per year than the rate I was on before.
      * So call the number I was given. Except that person has now apparently left AGL. Leave a msg anyway, asking them to call me if they are also in the retentions team. Of course, no call back.
      * So I call Origin's general number and ask for the retentions team. Get told they will leave a note on my file to ask for a callback, but they cannot make any promises I will ever get a call, as they can only make calls and no receive calls. Of course, no call back so far.
      * Compared on https://wattever.com.au/ , find that "Globird Energy Combo" is now the cheapest for 1 year (good ongoing rate with no bonus), although "AGL Essentials Online" seems good if you can get the bonus after 1 bill and then switch.
      * So now will switch from Origin as they can't return calls, and the retentions team will have to work hard to win me back.
      * I think this is a rather annoying business model. Much better to just offer the customer a better rate when they call up and ask for a better rate because they're going to change provider, surely?

    How do they compare to Lumo? Seriously looking to move away from Lumo

  • +1 vote

    Very likely you're better off with plans elsewhere… ie for me I can get 6% off base prices here or 16%+ off elsewhere.

    If you spend over $1100 in power for the year, the later is better.

    Edit: yeah you could switch in and out… But $100 in connection fees for $110…

  •  

    So many states excluded, should be called Energy NSWVIC :)
    Good deal I may consider to switch just for the cashback

  •  

    Thanks OP, just switched. FYI, make sure you click compare plans. First landing page showed Total Plan only after entering NMI and daily usage for comparison with my current provider which had only a few dollars difference. When I clicked compare plans, it turns out No Frill plan is $40 cheaper than Total Plan. Entering NMI made $30 difference and only small difference without.

    Just some feedback from me. I signed up to this deal last September I think, knowing that it could take a long time to track. It took a good two months for EnergyAustralia to take over my account from Alinta (the meter had just been read). I still haven’t received the cash back and can’t even seem to open a claim because it was over 60 days ago. Cashrewards’ support system seems to want to straight up not hear from you if your purchase was later than 60 days ago. I kept reading through the T&Cs saying EnergyAustralia can take months to confirm it but it seems lost at this moment. I can see my click though in the click history, but it didn’t track… pretty disappointed

    anyone know if they are better than actewagl in ACT price wise?

    It will be tracked…you will get it after your first full quarterly bill

    missing the word "Energy" for Energy Australia in the title

  •  

    I just moved In last week and joined energy Australia, how do I qualify for this cashback?

  •  

    Only get 40 for gas and 90 for electricity. neg

    •  

      Please get in touch with Rep TA . He may be able to sort this out for you

    •  

      I can only assume you purchased after expiry of the deal, as all transactions I'm looking at have reported at the correct amount during the promo period. Please PM me and I'll look into it for you. Thanks.

    •  

      I did clicked on 08/03/20 and sign up. I believe when I read and click this post it not show expired.

      •  

        Ok, that explains it. Cashrewards ran this promo officially from 5th-7th March. It appears this OzB post was expired by the moderators at 4:11PM on the 8th of March, as the OP failed to provide the expiry date as stated on the Cashrewards website. As this deal was not posted here by a Cashrewards official, we cannot be held responsible for the content. When you clicked out from this deal, you would have seen the correct BAU rates clearly displayed on the Cashrewards website. Having said that, reach out with your details and I will contact EA on your behalf in the hope they're willing to make an exception (but no promises). Thank you.
