There are only a few weeks left for Victorian households to claim their $50 bonus for visiting an energy comparison website.
To get the money, households will have to use the independent website, Energy Compare. To be eligible for the $50 bonus, households will simply have to use the Energy Compare website between before 31 December 2018, which shows consumers the best tariff for them based on their electricity and gas use.
Households are not required to take up an offer or switch plans to claim the bonus.
“We know there are better deals out there for Victorian families – this is about getting them on the website to find them,” said Premier Daniel Andrews.
The bonus scheme is aimed at helping families and small businesses save money on their energy bills, claiming that seven out of every 10 users can save money by switching retail offers.
VincentCare’s financial counsellors have assisted approximately 35 people over the past few weeks to claim the bonus. One VincentCare client was so pleased with the result that they wrote to us saying “It’s lovely getting a $50 cheque in the mail when all we usually get is bills!”
