Why should I consider signing up for one of these electricity and gas deals?

Switching energy providers can save you money, especially if you've moved out of the benefit period during which you're guaranteed discounts and fixed rates for a year.

This is especially true given the current energy crisis with market prices being so volatile. If more providers move their market offers to 1% less than the reference price as some have already done (Origin and Simply Energy are two examples), energy sign up deals will be one of the main points of difference to compare.

  • Good to know. Reference price or Victorian Default Offer (VDO) refers to the price benchmark set by state governments to compare energy plans. This is also sometimes referred to as an electricity discount, which is the term we will use throughout this article. Exact rates and discounts vary between states.

These offers aren't very common. There are only 4 providers that we know of currently offering these electricity and gas signup deals.
