Kill Your Bill – Win a Year's Free Power competition terms and conditions 

Be in to WIN a year’s worth of free power (equivalent to a credit of $2,181 across the year*) just by uploading a bill from your current power company to our Savings Estimate webpage. The winner will be drawn at 9am on Wednesday 1st December 2021. The winner will need to be a Powershop customer by Friday 17th December 2021 to redeem the prize.  

*Based on the projected median amount Powershop customers will spend on their main home over the 12-month period from October 2021 to September 2022. 

By entering the competition, you agree to the following terms and conditions.   

The Prize 

The winner will receive a total of $2181 Powershop credit. The $2181 will be credited to the winner’s Powershop account in twelve payments: 

  • $137 per month in summer (January - February 2022, December 2022) 
  • $180 per month in autumn (March - May 2022) 
  • $235 for month in winter (June - August 2022) 
  • $175 per month in spring (September - November 2022) 

These amounts will be credited to the winner’s account monthly and on the 15th of each month, unless the 15th is not a business day, in which case, it will be credited on the closest business day to the 15th of the month, beginning on 14 January 2022 and ending on 15 December 2022. 

A year’s worth of free power with Powershop is valued at $2181. This amount is based on the projected median amount Powershop customers will spend on their main home over the 12-month period from October 2021 to September 2022 

Any unused credit each month will accumulate and carry over for use in following months. 

If the winner’s due amount on any invoice for an account period is higher than the available prize credit in their account, they will be required to pay the balance of their account by the due date shown on their account review. 

For Classic customers, the credit will be available in your account for the purchase of powerpacks.  To make your Powershop credit last longer you can purchase all the Specials, Simple Savers and Future Packs. If you choose not to purchase powerpacks your credit will be used to cover the cost of the power we purchase on your behalf at your account review.
