Outrageous Pricing

1 Reply 1192 Views

 I have been an AGL customer for many years, and have generally stuck by them despite at times their being marginal more expensive, however, with my recent bills I have decided to seek other suppliers at affordable pricing. 

Most recent gas bill, utilising Bill Smoothing requires an outrageous, exorbitant, increase in monthly payments approaching an almost 350% increase.

And to top it off, it is impossible to have my existing CREDIT with my now closed Electricity Acct transferred to my Gas Acct. Although information on the AGL website indicates this is doable! Ha.

A very disgruntled former customer!!!!

Thanks Natalie, 

I eventually rang and spoke with a person about my refunds. I was advised that it may take up to 2 weeks before the funds are transferred back into my Bank Acct. This is not good at all, I have to pay my Accounts on/before the due date. It is my money & there should be virtually no delay in refunding Credits.

Why, after going through the verification process, being assigned an ID number, is it necessary to go through the process again, & WHY are you asked for your Birthdate. There are other methods enabling establishment of


A prospective Employer CANNOT ask your Birthdate, yet AGL & others can. No way.
