After YET ANOTHER disappointment with National Bank last week (Finding out I was paying about double the account fees I should have been), I have decided to re-look at all our suppliers. In about 2 hours of work, i reckon I can save me/the business about $50+ per month just by changing to new suppliers and new accounts.
Which makes me think a 6monthly review is worth it!!!
Unfortunately updating bank account details will be a nightmare for automatic payments, this is for personal banking only
National bank – Was charging per transaction = $12 per month OR a $5 fixed rate
Kiwibank Free up account – $0 monthly fees
TOTAL SAVINGS = $5 – $12
Landline + internet
Telecom for landline – Average price = $75 per month
World Exchange for internet – Average price = $65
Orcon – Price = $99.95 per month.
TOTAL SAVINGS = $40
Vodafone – some convoluted plan = $110 average a month
Genesis and Meridian – vastly fluctuates
Genesis and Powershop – Still fluctuates but is cheaper per unit
TOTAL SAVINGS = Not sure yet :)
Any ideas of cell phone providers much appreciated!
