A few account updates

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!!!

Bank

Unfortunately updating bank account details will be a nightmare for automatic payments, this is for personal banking only
Old:
National bank – Was charging per transaction = $12 per month OR a $5 fixed rate

New
Kiwibank Free up account – $0 monthly fees

TOTAL SAVINGS = $5 – $12

Landline + internet

Old:
Telecom for landline – Average price = $75 per month
World Exchange for internet – Average price = $65

New
Orcon – Price = $99.95 per month.

TOTAL SAVINGS = $40

Cellphone

Old:
Vodafone – some convoluted plan = $110 average a month

New
????

Power

Old:
Genesis and Meridian – vastly fluctuates

New
Genesis and Powershop – Still fluctuates but is cheaper per unit

TOTAL SAVINGS = Not sure yet :)

Any ideas of cell phone providers much appreciated!

  1. For cellphone, wait untill June when Vodaphone, Telecom and NZ Communications will all have launched their new networks and will be fighting a price war to get subscribers onto them.
