7,500 AA miles for switching to Energy Plus, now 20K (CT, MD, NJ, NY, PA and TX)

Just received 7,500 miles for switching to Energy Plus for my electric bill via a direct e-mail from AA. Electric bill is now month to month (no commitment) and no fees (monthly or termination).

Not bad for some free miles! Anyone else see deals like this for other utilities?

I'm in CT and I've received this offer before. Did a little research on www.ctenergyinfo.com and found that there are a lot of suppliers who are willing to publish their rates and also state whether they are fixed or variable rate. Energy Plus appears on a separate list of "all suppliers" where rates are listed as "negotiable," though supposedly you can cancel at any time. If you search "energy plus complaints" you can find a lot of unhappy people. I'm no fan of CL&P and I'd love to have the miles, but I'd also like to hear from someone in my state who remained consistently happy with Energy Plus, or was easily able to take the miles and change to another supplier without a hassle. I want to believe, I'm just a little dubious.

FWIW and YMMV

I did switch to Energy Plus when they had this promotion about a year ago (I think it's ongoing) and I can tell you the cost of electricity where I live (Brooklyn NY) was TWICE - I kid you not - the cost of Con Edison. Having said that, when I called and complained they immediately gave me credit for the difference, promptly cancelled the account and returned it to Con Edison. They also sent my 7000 to AA as promised. So you will have to decide if 7K miles is worth a little hassle.

If you google Energy Plus you'll see those stories all over the place. They entice you with their miles offer and just hope you wouldn't look in the bill, but if you do and complain they don't put too much of a fight.

I switched and switched back shortly thereafter. My own fault for not doing any research. RGE was about 5.5 cents per KW, energy plus was 13 cents

Their rates vary, like the utility company, and they use this not to give you any info. I asked them by email 3 times point blank, for a specific rate on any 1 specific date in the past. They danced around the question each time citing variable rates...but I asked for one in the past. On the 3rd time I told them if they will not quote a rate then I will consider them non competitive and will not consider changing.

I never heard from them again.

Is there a side-by-side comparison of the rates somewhere? I feel like that should be publicly available...

As I mentioned in post #5, for CT the rates for a large number of companies are at www.ctenergyinfo.com for the supplier companies that choose to disclose them. Apparently they don't have to and that's why, at least for CT, the rates for Energy Plus (and some other companies) are called "negotiable." I would assume that other states that offer generation supplier choice have the same information available. Your state department of public utilities probably either has the information on its website, or has the link to an independent website.

I took the bait and switched. Then I got the bigest electric bill in my home ownership history. their rate magically jumped to 19c/kw vs coned's 11c. I called to complain and they issued me a insignificantly small refund. Unless you have a 2nd meter with maintenance only service, I would not switch...

So far my electric rates are about 1% less than with PSE&G.

My bill calls it out. Delivery is still charged via my electric company.
Then my electric usage is priced out. Last month like $112. PSE&G has a sentence telling me my PSE&G electric would have been $118 or something.

So small discount so far (2 months in) and gotten miles per charge but not the 5000 bonus yet.

I may switch back as soon as I get the 5000 miles.

I just got an offer for 12,500 miles. Is it worth switching for 2 months and then switching back, or does the headache overwhelm the value of those miles?

Edit: re-reading these responses and almost nobody was happy with the cost/benefit. I think I'll pass.

I got an offer for 15,000 AA miles. Thinking of switching but after reading a number of post here, I plan to pass.

EDIT: One way to view this offer is as if you're buying miles with an unknown price. Price might be negative (lower than your current provider) or positive (higher than your current provider). If and when I do need a bit of miles for a particular airline, then I'll re-consider Energy Plus.
