    Does that mean you have to be with them for 180 days?

    • I honestly can not confirm.
      Potentially @tightarse can reply if he sees this.

      • +1

        If TA sees this, I would also like to ask, I moved out from EA to AGL a month ago, if I switch back to EA, will I be eligible?

        • +1

          Generally you can only get cashback/sign up bonuses once every 12 months from energy retailers (that's how I manage my rotations anyway) but it depends on how ecconex do the admin (they process these CR energy deals) you can find their phone number online if you have a look generally they are pretty good at answering questions in my experience and it's better that trying to go through Cash Rewards for info because that's all they'll do anyway.

    • +2

      I joined for gas and I've been with them over 90 days without cashback yet so I think it's gonna be close to the full 180 days. Usually energy deals through CR track in under 60 days from signup in my experience but I kinda new that. My advice is do the maths because if you are a heavy energy user these guys are expensive so you need to decide if cashback is worth it. Electricity wasn't worth the $110 when I looked a couple months ago.

      • Can switch after the cashback approved? Or they CR / ecconex willgive rebate after 12 months?

        • Yes as soon as it's withdrawable you can port out yes. it'll track within 24hrs but if you port out then it won't get verified.
          Is that what you were asking?

          • @Clarky77: Porting out after the CR had gone through.
            Porting to a new provider using CR too.
            Will CR give the rebate?

            • +2

              @a1234my: Yes I've switched about 5x so far from electricity provider to another and all have been paid.

    • +2

      No, i signed up with them a couple of months ago for gas and switched even before the first meter read because i know their rates were a rip. I made sure only paying them 1 bill otherwise the bonus cash was not worth the hassle. Took the gamble and won this time.

      • Do / had you make the second switch using CR?

        • no, not worth it at that time

  • +1

    Yeah but what's the rates

    • +4

      Depends on your address as every area is different.
      Check first if it suits you prior to signing up.

  • +4

    Try energymadeeasy website it can give you a customised comparison by inputting your nmi number.

    • The Victorian government comparison site is really good if you live here. It'll even adjust the recommendation based on concessions and usage which many of them don't which is super helpful if you are a low energy user esp.

      • The Victorian government site had heaps of old offers. I would click through and what they offered wasn’t available anymore. I was specifically looking at feed in Tarif prices and they were all old

      The deal expires today so don't wait!

      • Hehe, -was- on my list for Monday. All done!

  • you bloody beauty, looks like im changing gas company this wknd

    edit: nvm they dont service here lol

  • Stuck with up to 180 day lock in with them.

  • +6

    6 months of potentially overpriced rates which might negate if not be more than other providers, but YMMV.

    Also note that EA will perform a credit enquiry which will affect your credit score.

    • Didn't know about the credit enquiry. Thanks!

  • I'm in NSW with Qenergy. No issues yet and only 22.638 c/kwh

    • I am paying $0.45c/kWh peak rate with AGL

      • +2

        Unfortunately your being robbed…..shop around. You should be at least half that price

        • It depends as one has to factor in many things e.g. the rates for other times, the Daily (sac) fee, additional discounts and so on. I pay 0.41c for Peak however ALL other times (Shoulder and Off Peak) are a flat 0.14c. In turn balances itself out and in my case worked out best value when all said and done (less 8% when paid on time). That's with Globird.

          • @Borg: 22.6 on and off peak. Qenergy.

            • @Mickice: Again, it depends. On average, 90% of my power is @ 0.14c so ends up being cheaper. I ran the numbers of Qenergy as a matter of interest. In my case they end up being on avg 38% more expensive across all last 4 quaterly bills. It is very much a individual thing and comes down to circumstance, who your distributor is and so on. For me, either Globird or ReAmped are the cheapest by a fair margin. As noted, it may well be different for your situation. Energy Pricing is complicated comparing them all.

              • @Borg: "For me, either Globird or ReAmped are the cheapest by a fair margin."

                Me too. I was with Globird and moved to ReAmped for a slightly better rate (17.7 KW/h and 94.07 supply). And ReAmped has $50 for referrals.

                • @Rusty McMusty: Globird also has $50 referrals. Much of a muchness between the two but Globird ended up over the space of a year 8% cheaper. They charge slightly differently to Reamped i.e. they don't have Summertime Months But with the 8% discount ended up being cheaper. Both are good.

                  • @Borg: looking to change from Origin to either GloBird or ReAmped

                    what's the 8% discount from? paying via direct debit or? lol

                    currently with no discount on "market rate" ReAmped is $20 cheaper than GloBird per quarter.

                    • +1

                      @Brodo Faggins: The 7% is just paying ontime and an extra 1% if you set Auto-payment. Can be direct debit or Credit card. As for ReAmped being cheaper. One needs to base it over a whole year.

                      Reason: ReAmped have "Summertime" rates which is 4 months of the year. During those months they are cheaper by a few percent. All other months they are more expensive so for me Globird are cheaper. I have done the math in detail factoring in all the variables. Your milage may vary as it comes down to your type of use. If ReAmped works out better, then go ReAmped. They are decent and great prices.

                      • @Borg: Thanks Borg, looks like I'll satisfy that 8%, cheers!

                        As for that $20 monthly comparison for both, I used base figures (no discounts) on previous usage c/kwh + supply cost.

                        So yes simply x4 for very rough yearly calculation, would be ~$80/year if going with ReAmp over GloBird.

                        If ReAmped also has a Summer rate, that will bring ReAmp in more favour again

                        Thanks for sharing your insights!! :)

                        • @Brodo Faggins: That depends on how your calcs were initially done I suppose. Globird only have two rates Peak and Off Peak. Shoulder rate is the same as Off Peak. In turn Reamped over the other 8 non summer rate months are a tad more as they do have three rates. Regardless, both are great so you won't be out of pocket no matter which you go with :-)

    According to the ACCC, most Australian's have no idea what they're purchasing when they buy electricity.

      • With cleaning technology?

    • I don't but do you?

  • I'm already with Energy Australia. Any other companies offering similar deals?

  • +1

    Hi guys, I'm not associated with dodo / Agl
    But I did some calculations back and amongst the energy providors, Dodo and AGL were significantly cheaper than the other companies so make sure you get their quotes for your situation. Previously was with origin who are very expensive.

    I live in Sydney, NSW family of 4 (but probably consume the same amount of energy and gas as a 5-6 people family

    • Have you compared with reamped energy for electricity?

  • +2

    No thanks. I was scammed by their door-to-door knocker many years ago.

  • +3

    Still can't believe they are allowed to use the name Energy Australia when they are 100% owned by China Light and Power!

    • +1

      Because they are an electricity company in Australia ;)

  • Does anyone know the Feed in tariffs from them for Victoria?

    • I think it is 7.6kwh, but not sure.

      • Pretty low I’m on 10.2c per kWh

      • This is rubbish feedin rates. I’m on 20c/kWh with Origin.

        • Origin no longer offers that…now 12c max

  • If only I had the option of a different electricity and gas company. Looks like a good deal.

  • Just signed up on Thursday :(

      Cancel then sign up again

    in 180 days, you will pay them for sure more than $250 more ….so no deal, in fact, it's a deal for them…

  • I have electricity with EnergyAustralia and gas with AGL. If I switch gas to EnergyAustralia, am I eligible?

  • -1

    No, thank you. They are one of the biggest polluters in the electricity market with AGL Energy & Origin Energy.

    • moving to an Amish country might help you!

  • The market is betting that nuclear energy around the world is about to take off big time .

  • Any love fir those already with Energy Australia? :'(

  • Interesting! Just did a quick check in Sydney and currently better than im getting from Origin atm. Latest plan from Origin i can see for my area does not seem to beat it either. Might be time for a switch!

  • That’s a lot of Cashback. Wish I needed power.

  • When I did this last year on a similar deal, it took the whole cash back period to be confirmed

  • Is it eligible for solar plan?

    • I was wondering that too

    • Yes, they however offer 7.6kwh solar feedin.

  • When comparing gas plan costs on Energy Australia I came across this. May be available in other states too.

    $50 Sign Up Credit
    + Offer available to SA residential customers who sign up to an electricity or gas offer. Limit of one $50 credit per new energy account, per customer address. We may change or end this offer at any time. Credit will be applied to your first bill and is not transferable or redeemable for cash.

  • Just signed up with globird!!!!
    Thanks for the reminder to switch.
    Have to wonder why such big cash back is on offer!!!

  • Alinta energy $179 disconnection fee ruins this for me :(

    • +1

      Switching to another provider is not a disconnection

  • Rates are pretty much the same as what I'm on now. Just signed up, hoping it tracks! Thanks OP

  • Was going to sign up but they don't seem to have an off peak tariff eg 31 or 33 which our pool , hot water and air con run on. Is this common now? I assume the energy supplier will still limit supply on those meters regardless of what I'm paying.

    edit I tried to contact them but no luck on a Sunday and the offer finishes tonight.

  • I'm with Simply Energy in Vic here are my rates, anyone got better?

    Daily supply charge
    Before discount
    $1.067440 per day
    After 16% discount
    $0.88966 per day
    Usage rates
    Peak usage per day
    Before discount
    23.4300 c/kWh
    After 16% discount
    19.68 c/kWh

    Feed in Tariff
    10.20 c/kWh

  • I'm in SA and the electricity plans aren't too bad, but the comparative gas price for a quarter compared to my current provider is $80 dearer per quarter because of a flat rate.
    Might pay anyone interested to work out their charges before just signing up.

  • Any idea when the tracking will show? After the first bill 3 months away?
    Just showing in "click history" at the moment.

    • Just got an email half an hour ago saying that CR had tracked the cashback, and will be finalised by EA. I'm guessing that's 180days after the connection commences. My Electricity bill is about $140 per quarter, so planning to change to another provider once the $150 is approved.

  • Mine just tracked. Didn't happen automatically, had to raise a request and show them my welcome email.
    Pretty good customer service from CR as usual. Happy with the free $250!
