Reliant or Energy Plus AA and UA offers (CT, MD, NJ, NY, PA and TX) [Consolidated]

Searched, didn't find.

I recieved a letter from AA offering 7500 miles for signing with electricity supplier Energy Plus. The promo # is AAL244, and their website is: www.energyplusrewards.com/AAL244. There is no contract and the miles are supposed to be posted after 2nd month, after that it's 2 mile for every dollar if you decide to stay with them.

Please note: the website does NOT say a single word about 7500 miles, but I signed up anyway figuring since I have the letter, it's not too much of a risk. Can be YMMV, though. Their number is: 866-964-5672, but if you sign up with a phone rep it's only 5000 miles rather than 7500.

Now, I'm just thinking if I could doubledip by enrolling my business, too. Would be very nice and easy 15000 miles for nothing if it worked.

Question watch out for 7500 mile promotion

I received the same AA flyer in the mail. Checked with my local energy supplier, NYSEG. Actually, NYSEG has the promotion details and direct links for USAirways, etc. who offer the same promotion. Can be used for residential or business as far as I could determine. However, when I compared the variable supplier electricity rates offered by NYSEG compared to the ESCO EnergyPlus rates, I found the kwh rates for NYSEG HALF as much (.048 vs .09) as the ESCO. When I called EnergyPlus, was told rates vary by region. I'm located in the Finger Lakes of New York State.

While I didn't do a complicated mathmatical analysis, something tells me that 7500 ffmiles can't possibly compensate for paying twice as much for all energy in multiple buildings from this point forward.

Or do you plan to sign up, then cancel as soon as miles are posted? If anyone finds out further information, please advise.

I got a letter from my supplier Co Edison also and for the 7500 AA miles--BTW, a similar letter was sent to me only 2 months ago for the change in suppliers but it was only for 4000miles, guess not enough people going for the deal so they up the miles. From what I read on my letter, it said no long term contracts needed, just sign up and stay with program for 90days.
Now if I could only figure out which suppliers have the lowest rates then I might even go for this deal, but have not found any companies at a big discount yet.
Perhaps we could share info on what companies offer lowest rates so we could all jump in on this promotion.

I signed up for Energy Plus over a year ago through USAir (for only 3500 miles), and I never noticed any significant difference in rates. This was in Manhattan, through ConEd. I moved and no longer pay my own utility bill, so I don't have current data to compare with someone else.

From the page itself: "Its the only way to earn miles on electricity in New York"

Though residents in the Texas and Connecticut service area might want to try.

They surely do not make it easy to shop for the best rate. Many ESCOs here in NY only offer market rates. I doubt Energy Plus rates would be significantly higher than ConEd, but even if they are, some costs would probably be offset by sales tax out of the picture. If not, I'll take their miles and then it's sayonara.

More than one account for person is possible. 15000 miles, here I come!

Received the response from Energy Plus regarding receving 15000 miles for both personal and business accounts.

"Hi,

Thank you for joining Energy Plus!

I cannot advise you on the exact date you will receive your bonus miles as it really depends on when you begin service with us. Your local utility will not allow you to switch suppliers in the middle of a billing cycle so sometimes the switch can take up to two months. Following your switch to Energy Plus for supply, you will receive your bonus miles after you complete two months of service with us.

And yes, if you sign up your business you would receive an additional 7500 bonus miles. Every meter you sign up earns a the same bonus!

Hope this helps!

Best Regards,
Energy Plus Customer Support

Stay away from energy plus!

I signed up for this offer last year while they were running a promotion with CO for OP miles. Rates were significantly higher then ConEd as i compared the rates each billing cycle. It is also very difficult to switch back to ConEd once your with an ESCO. -Impossible to get thru to Energy Plus to cancel service and then once you finally do it takes approx. 3 months of billing cycles for ConEd to reinstate you as a customer. Deff. not worth the milage promotion.

they want you to switch you electric utility from "X" or NiMo or whatever to Energy plus

I am in Dallas and just switched to Energy plus on the Delta offer which was only 7,500 miles. This is my second billing cycle and haven't seen the miles yet. But the good part is that my electricy rate per KWh has droped 45% using Energy plus.

caveat emptor

http://www.complaints.com/2009/july/...gs_LLC__211050.

...and I cant find much info on Kwh rates. except one webpage with pricequotes showing 50% higher supply rates....of course energyplus claims a small savings on delivery charges....who knows....

Think there's a mistake there, .17 is significantly better than .9

called to get a quote and idea about rates
she gave me 0.117 Kwh which supposedly fluctuates daily. instead on on-peak/off peak rates that we pay now

thats way above what i pay now
almost twice the rate

this is the new ENRON at work
i dont have the energy to price out what 3 months of charges and the end projected cost of the 10k miles
if you dont use much electricity maybe it works
otherwise its a crappy deal

Oops. That's .09 to .17
I once read a statistic, that five thirds of all people have trouble with fractions.
Looks like decimals can also be tricky.
