Is Alinta’s Sports Pack Energy Plan worth it?

Whether it’s watching football, cricket or surfing, sports fanatics will undoubtedly get the most value out of Alinta’s new product offering thanks to Kayo’s long list of sports on its streaming service. With a monthly streaming subscription up for grabs, residential customers stand to pocket up to $300 a year in savings, provided they meet Alinta’s eligibility criteria for the plan.

Canstar Blue Energy Editor, Jared Mullane, said that niche offerings like Alinta’s Sports Pack Energy Plan can offer great value, so long as customers are going to use the streaming platform.

“We’ve seen telco providers offer deals like this for years now, but this is a change when it comes to energy retail and a good sign that the retailers are starting to think outside the box for more creative ways to attract and retain customers,” he said.

“Since energy reforms were introduced a couple of years ago, we’ve seen the difference in pricing between retailers reduce, so these sorts of sign-up incentives are going to become a more notable selling point for consumers to consider. But just make sure the bonus feature is something you’ll actually use!

“But, while sign-up incentives are a high selling point when choosing the right plan, it’s important that Aussies remember to check that the rates and charges within these plans are right for them. Having a great value-add benefit is only worth it if you’re going to use the product and if you’re paying the right amount in base pricing.”
