Paying for your utilities monthly can be a drag, especially if you have different plans and providers for them. If you're tired of dealing with multiple bills for your household, maybe it's time to consider bundle plans!
Bundles refer to combining two or more services or household utilities for the price of one from one provider. More often than not, these bundle plans are offered at a discounted price. A bundle deal is one of your best options if you want to manage all your household utilities in one single package. Today, most providers in New Zealand offer this option to their customers, allowing them to combine internet, electricity, gas, and more in one bundle plan.
Bundle plans can be sketchy for some customers, thinking they're just being tricked into saving more by bundling their bills into one. No worries, though, because product bundles do save you money! Both providers and consumers benefit from bundle plans. Providers attract new customers and encourage existing ones to buy more of their services, and in return, customers get amazing discounts. It's a win-win for both!
The only possible disadvantage you might get from getting a bundle plan is that some providers require you to sign a fixed contract and canceling before the contract ends, which may require you to pay termination fees.
You’ll get more savings on your monthly bills.
Most NZ providers offer bundle plans at a discounted price, which means you'll save more money than if you get separate plans for your utilities.
It’s more convenient.
Aside from money, bundling utilities for your home saves you time. Paying for your monthly bills can be tasking at times and even more so if you have to pay them separately. With a bundle plan, you get the convenience of paying just one bill for all your utilities.
More promotional offers.
Aside from discounts, some providers have promotional offers and rewards, including waived fees, free installation, and more if you get one of their bundle deals.
