What came in your mail today?
« on: July 31, 2012, 12:08:39 PM »
As a sister thread to the "what did you get in your email today?" thread, I figured I'd start this one.

I got two interesting letters today:

1. EnergyPlus is offering me 25k SW for switching to them. They're a scam, and it seems they're getting desperate offering 25k.
2. BofA is thanking me for my loyalty (yeah right) and giving me a heads up that my annual fee will be billed on my net month ::) Anyone ever see that from a CC issuer before?

A hand written thank you note from my local BOA branch for being a valued costumer. Next I expect a form letter from corporate saying they are closing my accounts.  :)

I received the 25,000 offer as well, I tried calling to get 50 and they wouldn't budge:(

Why are they a scam?

Is it worth getting the miles and then cancelling?

1. EnergyPlus is offering me 25k SW for switching to them. They're a scam, and it seems they're getting desperate offering 25k.

I actually got a 25k United offer. The letter has a link (EnergyPlusRewards.com/UALNY72), so if anyone's interested they can give it a try.

As far as EnergyPlus being a scam, it's a very beatable scam, with no real risk. I did it already on a much less lucrative offer and now I'm kicking myself for jumping on it back then. They guarantee to be 7% less than ConEd during the first 2 months (which I confirmed in my bills). After that you can cancel very easily, one phone call (in which they'll try to sell you on some sort of special rate) and you're done. You will possibly be stuck with their high rate for the third billing month, but as long as you call as soon as your bonus miles post you won't get hit more than that. And while their rates are a ripoff, unless you're consuming electricity like some sort of industrial factory, it's not going to cost you anywhere near what you're earning.

They hike your rates up after a few months. Do a search, it's been discussed around here before.

got a solicited offer for the UMPE card

55k/65k offer?

I received the 25,000 offer as well, I tried calling to get 50 and they wouldn't budge:(

What 50k offer?

Is it worth getting the miles and then cancelling?

Welcome (back) to DDF :)

How much is 25k SW worth the you?

I actually got a 25k United offer. The letter has a link (EnergyPlusRewards.com/UALNY72), so if anyone's interested they can give it a try.

Thanks. 25k UA is indeed a very attractive offer, best to do it in the winter, when your energy bills are lower.

What 50k are you talking about? There's no 50k offer for this to my knowledge...
