New Group Buying Company Brings Money-Saving Deals on Electricity to New Jersey Residents
Alphabuyer offers New Jersey residents opportunity to lock-in the lowest electricity rates available and savings of $200 annually
Philadelphia, PA – July 20, 2011 Until now, group buying has been confined to coupons on non-essentials, like restaurant meals, spa visits, and microderm abrasion. A new company, Alphabuyer, is changing that. As the first company to bring the group buying concept to the non-discretionary marketplace, Alphabuyer helps people to reduce the amount they spend on monthly utility bills. The company is expanding its services to New Jersey, and for the first time, customers of PSE&G, JCP&L, and Atlantic City Electric can pool their buying power to lock-in low electricity rates which can save average users $100 - $200 annually. Those who use more energy can save even more.
Alphabuyer initially launched in December 2010 in southeastern Pennsylvania and by April, the company extended coverage across the state. To date, thousands of consumers have signed up at www.Alphabuyer.com to switch their electricity and natural gas suppliers and have realized discounts far more significant than they would receive as individuals. This month, Alphabuyer is offering three electricity deals in New Jersey with discounts up to 15%.
- JCP&L - 15% savings vs price to compare of 11.36 cents/kWh
- PSE&G - 15% savings vs price to compare of 11.4 cents/kWh
- Atlantic City Electric - 11% savings vs price to compare of 10.4 cents/kWh
According to Alphabuyer CEO Kevin Johnson, “Switching energy suppliers may not be sexy but it's an absolute “no-brainer”. Signing up takes less than five minutes at Alphabuyer.com. The lights turn on the next day and you still pay your bill to the same utility company. It's just that you're paying 10%-20% less for the same thing.”
Savings on energy is just the first product category for Alphabuyer. The company also plans to introduce the group buying model to other big-ticket monthly bill categories, including gasoline, cable television, mobile phones, and Internet access. In time, Alphabuyer aspires to become a one-stop shop for people across the country to save money on the necessities in their lives.
“It's high time that we, as consumers, had a viable way to negotiate what we pay for our necessities,” says Johnson. “Alphabuyer empowers regular people to pool their purchasing power to command the best prices, options, and terms for their monthly bills. It's the future.”
HOW IT WORKS
Alphabuyer negotiates with utility suppliers to offer groups of consumers the most competitive rates on natural gas and electricity. Consumers can visit www.Alphabuyer.com where they can enter their zip code to view offers in their area. They can then estimate potential savings and review the details of the offer. Once enrolled, customers can share the offers with friends and family. As more people sign up and the size of the group grows, the savings increase. Once the offer closes, everyone enrolled enjoys the same discounted price. Each offer is available for a limited time period.
Alphabuyer charges no fees to switch. Consumers continue to receive only one bill from their local utility since that company continues to deliver the energy to the consumer’s home, with no interruption.
As an advocate for consumers, Alphabuyer negotiates for the best locked-in rates and also for the best options and features such as no cancellation fees, upgradable agreements and no hidden fees. In addition, Alphabuyer will be there to negotiate the best possible renewal terms.
