    Collective buying power

    Hi Guys,
    Im new to this board (didnt see an introductions thread) & not sure if this was the right place for my question but it seems as good as any.
    I've been hearing a lot lately of where communities, families, friends etc have been getting together to pull their buying power as a collective to get better rates on gas, electricity & other utilities. (negotiating as a group rather than an individual)
    I can see the merits to it but anyone out there done this & how did you go?
    Did you see real savings?
    Also anyone interested in starting something like this?

    Cheers

    Hi Muffy welcome to the website, I too couldn't find a introduce yourself page when I joined and like you just got stuck in

    Are you in Victoria at all?

    There's this one posted by Power With Numbers and a chance to win up to $4,500

    PWN's post: http://www.saverscene.com.au/bargain...html#post14742

    The chance to win up to $4,500
    $4,900 CASH Prize Draw - Enter for FREE! (Facebook OR submit a basic form via website required)

    I've only just signed a contract the week before PWN showed up, but once I'm out of it I'll be looking into the community reduction ideas, I think it's a great idea. Hope they move to mobile phones and get 4G costs down next, and home broadband too! I have looked into overseas ones and you're right it looks to work

    Hi Muffy

    As Shopaholic mentioned, we are running such initiative for Victorians. It does work as tested overseas, those that joined in the US and UK saved hundreds of $$/pounds respectively.

    Whilst we started with family, friends, etc. we have opened the offer to all Victorians, to use the mass group buying power to facilitate a great deal.

    As mentioned in our other post, our group has almost 9,000 already, with sign ups ending on 31 August. Plenty of information on our website (Power With Numbers | Cheaper gas and electricity for Melbourne and VIC using people power), feel free to let me know if you have any questions, either on this forum or by email nick@powerwithnumbers.com.au.
