Five minutes of your time could save you hundreds of dollars on your energy bills every year.
There’s no need to spend hours checking multiple websites. Simply use this Electricity and Gas comparison service and you can get a cheaper plan in less time than it takes to make a cup of coffee.
Is it worth switching energy suppliers?
In short, yes. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is practically begging consumers to compare energy bills and find a better deal.
The government body recently reported that consumers who shop around to find the best deal could save up to $219 per year*.
That’s backed up by a Compare Club report that found over 40% of Aussies have experienced bill shock when it comes to energy prices.
Don’t think loyalty to your current supplier will deliver savings. It’s common for suppliers to bump customers onto a higher tariff after their introductory offer expires.
It’s why smart Aussies save by switching energy plans on a regular basis.
