Do “Make it Cheaper” – “Make it Cheapest”?

Why talk about make it cheaper?

Make it Cheaper are the market leader in comparing business electricity and gas prices. We ask the question: do you get the cheapest electricity and gas from Make it Cheaper?

What do make it cheaper do?

Make it Cheaper are a comparison service like iSelect but unlike iSelect they focus mainly on business electricity and gas (they do service homes too). They are contracted by energy providers to get them with electricity and gas customers and are paid big commissions for doing so (typical commissions in the industry are $200-500). Their website shows they compare 13 suppliers, but eliminating 2 of the 3 variations of AGL, leaves 11, less than half of the 25 providers. To be fair, the 25 include several that only service homes. It is standard for comparison services of this type to be obliged under their contract with the provider not to give customers an ongoing service. The providers have paid for the customer and require that the customer not be provoked to switch again. It is understood that with Make it Cheaper the embargoed period is 2 years.

What do make it cheaper do initially?

Make it Cheaper do indeed make your energy bill cheaper when they provide their initial recommendation. It will only be the cheapest when the cheapest provider is represented in their panel of 11 suppliers.

What about when prices change?

Most energy providers change their prices twice a year, but many change their prices more often. Comparison services are obliged not to prompt you when there is a better deal, either because your price goes up or another supplier goes down. On average, the currency of a switch may be 3 months before there will be price changes. Of course your chosen provider may remain the best of the 11 providers. Alternatively it may not, and after 6-12 months it is unlikely that the chosen energy deal will be the best of the 11 providers and even less likely the cheapest of all providers.

What is the result for a real customer?

We recently did comparisons for 3 sites for a business electricity customer that had been using Make it Cheaper for 10 years. We found savings of over $6000 on 2 of the 3 sites, representing a saving of 21% for those sites. There was no saving available for the other site, which was probably because they had only switched 2 months earlier.
