Whether you’re a backseat bandit or sitting in the front row, making savings by buying Powerpacks in the Shop is easy as ABC - once you wrap your head around it.
Here in the School of Shop Library, we’re going to teach you all about our Shop so that you’ll know how to shop the deals and make some decent savings on your power.
- What are Powerpacks
- How to get the best bang for your buck
- How the power’s in your hands
But first things first…download the app!
To get the most out of your shopping, you need to download our app. While you can shop through our online customer portal, using our app is way easier. It means you can shop for power anytime, anywhere, monitor your usage and best of all, you’ll be notified when Powerpacks arrive in the shop, so you never miss a chance to save.
What is a Powerpack?
A Powerpack is a dollar amount of power. You can buy different Powerpacks at a range of different price points in our Shop.
Once you’re in the Shop, underneath each Powerpack you’ll see:
- The cost of the pack (the amount you pay) and what it’s worth (based on your Standard Power cost) – these are often different amounts, so this makes it easy to see what you’re saving
- How many days of power the pack should give you and around how many dollars per day that works out to be.
Buying Powerpacks allows you to save money on your Standard Power rate and is handy for budgeting and planning ahead.
Staying Power – the longer you’re with us, the more you save
Staying Power has a super discount which starts at 20% off your standard rates. It’s our way of saying thanks for sticking with Powershop, so for each year you’re with us, the discount increases by 1%, reaching a max of 25% after five years.
Staying Power is available in the shop on the first of the month and will stay there all month so you can buy it whenever it suits you.
Future Packs – buy your power in advance
The further out you buy Future Packs, the more you save! You can buy Future Packs from six months to two months in advance, with discounts ranging from 10% to 2% against your standard rate.
Buy six months ahead to save the maximum 10% and help spread your power costs out more evenly across the year. Bonus tip: you can buy TWO Future Packs each month.
In the app, you can find Future Packs by swiping left on your energy usage circle. The Packs will appear below, and you’ll be able to see which month they are for and how much your discount is.
Our Weekly Specials are packs that are released into the Shop most weeks. They’re limited time specials and are only available for a few days. If you’ve got the app, you’ll get a notification each time it’s released into the Shop so you’ll never miss a deal.
Weekly Specials are always discounted against your standard rate. Topical in nature, they’re designed to give you a giggle.
Value packs are fixed price and they’re always in the Shop, so you can buy exactly what you need, when you need it. Value Packs have the smallest discount out of all the Powerpacks. But they’re still great and still discounted against your standard rate.
How to get the best bang for your buck
Buying Powerpacks from our Shop means that you can make some really nice savings on your power. But there is a magic formula that you can follow to get the most bang for your buck every time.
In a nutshell, if you buy your monthly Staying Power pack, each of the Weekly Specials as they come out and two Future Packs six months in advance, you’re going to get the best value for your money.
To reiterate: Staying Power + Future Packs + Weekly Specials = SAVINGS.
And that’s what we’re all about.
The Power’s in your hands
Buy now, pay when it suits
We know that incomes don’t always line up nicely with the first of the month, but we don’t want you to miss out on a saving because of it! That’s why we offer you the option to buy your Powerpacks when they land in the Shop (or when you need them) and pay for them when it suits you.
Once you’ve added them into your cart, you’ll be given the choice to pay straight away, or pay later. That can be in the form of a monthly bill if that’s what floats your boat, but it doesn’t have to be. You can jump into your cart any time you like to make your payment. How’s that for convenience?
Shopping for your power with Powershop is buying power on your terms. You can make real savings with our discounted Powerpacks, and you can buy them whenever and wherever it works for you.
