Panda Power

Had a door to door salesman put the hard sell on and seemed to be a great deal.

Rang Electric Ireland and cant/wont match the deal, no charge for leaving them

Panada give 50 credit but then take 50 if/when you leave next year, then they are offering 15% discount compared to electric Ireland

The only alarm bell that electric Ireland raised was how much panda units cost, which makes sense, no point paying more per unit even with the big discount.

Am I missing anything else? 14 days cooling off so interested to get it sorted soon

Thanks

Have you checked bonkers.ie ?
This site will tell you who is the cheaper option for you
If you shop in SuperValu the rewards scheme gives money off electric Ireland and this could work out to be more than the €50 here and there panda are offering

If you give 30 days notice for sky they will offer you a discount to stay
Normally 30% off at first
If you hold out and get close to the date they come back with half price

I signed up to Panda yesterday for gas and electricity.

We are already with them for bin collection.

There is a two week cooling off period before the switch-over begins.

We are currently paying 16.89c per unit with SSE Airtricity and 5.0645 for gas.

When I try bonkers.ie for a dual fuel supplier, I get Bord Gais as the best with 15.48c and 4.83 cent for a 1 year contract.

Panda are way down the list in Bonkers.ie.

But, they are offering me 14.38c and 4.52c for a one year contract in addition to a €50 voucher which can be used against bin collection or gas and electricity.

Seems like a no-brainer for a one year contract.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

D.

You're missing
the €200 cashback from ElectricIreland for dual fuel
or
the €135 for electricity with SSE & €75 for gas with EI

Insert the yearly amount of kwh you normally use into switcher.ie or bonkers.ie
and see if the cashback is worth more than the cheaper rates over the year

Just beware that price comparison site will not always show the best offers - they show the best offers that also give them the best commission and put the offers with the best commission for themselves at the top.

I'm with Panda Power, current fixed rate is 14.74, standing chg 46.5c per day, pso levy 3.48 (reduced rate from Oct)

Been with them for 3 years and what I particularly like is they always call me before the contract is up and ask if I want to fix for another year unlike SSE and Energia who hope you forget. I think Bord Gais also give a call.
