In MA here, the UA MP offer I responded to was 10,000 for joining + 2,500 for having a United Mileage Plus Chase credit card. Still haven't received the 2,500. Or the triple miles per Energy+ spend. (But then, still haven't received a 1,000 bonus promised by Cartera/MP Shopping either.)

They should just put a last step in all the t&c called, "Clawing back" because it's virtually always necessary... OK, I was actually pleasantly surprised when the 10,000 showed up. But I'm still not ready to say, "Deal!"

Now, a question: Why are people all worked up over the increase caused by Energy+? My increase of 30% is about $5. The Energy+ component itself is a small fraction of my bill. I thought the markup people were upset about was some multiple of their whole bills.

we signed up and received the promised AA miles last month and i finally got around to cancelling the service yesterday. surprisingly the rate in MA only went up a little after the promotional fixed 3 month rate, 6.7 -->8.9 cents/kw-hr. it seems nstar is charging a lot more, 12.53 cents/kw-hr? maybe i should have stayed with energyplus lol

Red face

I feel a bit like they're stringing me along with the, "It may take 4-8 weeks for the 2,500 miles and tripling of your monthly miles to show up." I'm afraid to switch back to NSTAR until they do ... as the price of those miles goes up. Makes me wonder if we both have our eyes on the breakeven.

Interesting. I'm also in MA and Energy Plus' latest rate was 14.4, so I called to cancel. This is my vacaion home so it doesn't add up to a lot of $s, but it's way higher than my NStar rate on my main residence.

Warning to all those that sign up for the enrollment bonus: carefully check your rates after the introductory period!

i know i was suprised too! we've had energyplus in tx and nj before and the rates both went up maybe 20-30% after the promotional period ended in the past. even more surprising is the energyplus rep didn't even put up a fight when i called to cancel the service. was given a cancellation number and done in just a few minutes (not counting the 5-8 min hold time to reach a representative )

Can you sign up multiple times? For example, I signed up before I moved and earned UA miles this year. Now I'm at a new place, with a new account. Can I sign up for Energyplus and earn miles under a different airline?

Yes, done this through the years, between wife, and different airlines, both have received bonus from AA, US, UA. Still use them, been under contract since rate is competitive.

Obviously Energy Plus has a poor reputation regarding gauging customers after the first 2 months. However I signed up on a summer cottage with the electricity shut off! I'll let you know if the miles post !

Has anyone done this recently (specifically, in IL)? Is it good or a PITA like someone previously described?

I'm looking to earn some UA miles and this seems like a good possibility!
