I had to contact them for rates (I emailed) and they said they didn't supply to my (NSW) address. This is likely why some others are…

Yes they charge dodgy demand tariffs. They're literally charging you for energy you don't use (in this case the penalty is based on your…

I've never seen a charge like it. You should go to the Ombudsman as the retailer is not explaining the charge.
28/05/2024 - 22:07
This is just a heads up for those unaware rather than a complaint. Energy companies are what they are. I was on the Origin Go Variable plan…

3M P2 Particulate Vertical Flat Fold Disposable Respirator 25 Pack $17.99 Delivered @ MiratraCo via Amazon AU
Historic low by a big margin according to Camels for quality face masks. Usually $40-$60 for 25 pack. I've found these to have a good seal,…

Our experience was reasonable - signed up to the super low rates they had last year and got the $50 credit. It took a long time to…

They are unfair. There's some good articles around explaining the problem, but it seems there's not a lot consumers living in these…

I can recommend - definitely feel the effect. It doesn't mix great, which is not a big deal for me, just shake it up a bit more. The mango…

It would be hard on a short-term financial basis, but maybe medium to long term if your house doesn't use gas, you get an EV, or you have…

Totally agree. Our retailer, Energy Australia, gave us no choice but to shift to a demand charge based scheme when our previous contract…

Those prices seem reasonable for NSW at least - have a look at the SolarQuotes website. But based on your low electricity bill, I don't…
04/07/2023 - 16:02
It sounds like a big system for that sized electricity bill, especially if they may move out in a few years. But you really have to take a…

AKAI Professional MPK Mini Play MK3 MIDI Keyboard Controller with Built-in Speaker & Sounds - $155 Delivered @ Amazon AU
Standalone mini keyboard with built-in speaker and USB MIDI Controller capabilities for beat makers, songwriters and musicians. Lowest…

At that ultra low electricity usage rate, solar panels would not be even close to worth it. For our household like us, it was definitely…

Do everything in your power to make sure your company at least breaks even in 2021. If you draw an income from your company and the company…

This is a scare campaign - a massive misrepresentation of the Retirement Income Review's findings that "using superannuation assets more…

Seven negs, hilarious. Perhaps I should have explained I have a three year old first.
12/11/2017 - 07:32
I have one of these and this is correct as per: http://www.appliancetaggingservices.com.au/blogs/insulated-pins I think I'll go for…

Probably best I don't get too critical of Adelaide. One predictable neg already. Whatever your choice, just know you will have to get out…
31/10/2017 - 07:40
I grew up in Adelaide. Lived there for 25+ years. If you want a future that includes employment and a career progression, get out now.

In NSW, the laws are improving to give renters more rights to live smoke free in their own residence:…

I bought the last one - it was rusty and the black bit immediately fell off.

thefreelunch commented on Afterpay
There is no logical reason for a retailer to give up a commission to Afterpay unless the consumer spends more than they would have…

I think people are being a little harsh on Sportradar. They just recruit Uni students and pay them peanuts to monitor suburban sports so…

Agree with the YadaYadaYada - loose leaf tea is far better tasting than tea bags (which is the equivalent of instant coffee). Buy a few…

Exactly, won't have much affect at all. The "extra" money to buy a house is even lower than $30k - it's the difference between your…

I can't believe Qantas is promoting fx trading to the general public with this "offer". Highly dangerous.

[@fritzsticker](/comment/4374943/redir): If your web host goes down, so does your email and forwarders are unreliable. Losing a single…
19/01/2017 - 21:43
Agree - it's not great practice to use your web host for email or even as a forwarder. Better to pay a few bucks for Gmail For Business or…

If you're in NSW use the Fuel Check service to find the cheapest petrol near you. Most independents are far cheaper than Coles or…
