Terrible and Dishonest

 I signed up for power with Discount Power on Aug 24th and got everything switched over. Received my first bill on 09/28/2018 with a due date of 10/01/2018. We usually pay all our bills on Wednesday of each week. Wednesday was 10/03/2018 and we received a disconnect notice in the mail. We paid the bill that day, but the next bill had over 40.00 worth of late fees for paying a bill due on 10/01/2018 by 10/03/2018.

I called to ask for leniency since I did not even receive the first bill until 3 days before its due date and the gentlemen on the phone who was clearly from another country rudely stated that I could look at the bill and see that it was late after the first and if I didn't want late fees I should pay by the due date.

The next bill has a due date of 10/29/2018, just 11 days after receiving the bill. I hear they charge $250.00 for discontinuing their service, but at this point they can eat that.

Run far and fast from Discount Power. They have 0 American support by phone and their website payment method only works some times. I had to try 3 times to get a payment to go through. Each payment would fail. I got a call from the bank asking me If I was trying to make 3 payments to Discount Power for the same amount and told them no. They canceled all 3 payments. I then made the actual payment over the phone. They want to charge you an inconvenience fee.

18-month customer--very satisfied!

 Our home is 1500 SF and it's only 2 years old. My husband and I set the thermostat at 72 in the summers and 68 in the winters. Our bills with Discount Power are the lowest in our subdivision and average about $55-$60/month. The one from this month was only $37. I'm not sure what the issue everyone is having, but our experience has been excellent with Discount Power. We enjoy our fixed rates and no additional surcharges like the other electric providers. Thank you, Discount Power!

    Floating due dates and non posting of payments

     I am just about fed up with these people. They issued me a disconnect notice the day the bill is due which was irritating as anything because the due date was always on the 15th and that month they changed it to the 12th. But that was my first unpleasant experience with them and they did waive the late fee when I called them. Forgiven.... Then I made a payment through their portal like I have been doing since I signed up with these people almost a year ago yet "they never received it". It cleared my Bank of America checking account the evening I made the payment yet after 15 days of still fighting with them, they tell me BOA is famous for taking the money out of an account yet not paying them. Really???? I have never had that problem anywhere else and I have been with BOA since 1988. Had to make the same payment again using a credit card not issued from BOA. Double my payment and they said unless BOA sends the money (again) they won't post the 2nd payment on my account. Can't wait for my contract to be O.V.E.R!!!!

    Good prices for new customers. Long contract terms available. Renewal offers aren't very attractive.

     Signed up with Discount Power on a two year contract via Power To Choose. Sign up was easy and pricing worked out to be very cheap, around 7.5 cents/KwH on average over a year including TDSP charges, based on my typical usage patterns. They offer flat rate plans and tiered usage plans. If you go with a tiered plan, make very sure you know how the formula works and what your estimated costs are going to be based on past usage. Make sure to use the auto bill pay and keep your payment information up to date.

    No problems with billing or anything else during the 24 months I had them. Until renewal time, I had no need to contact customer service.

    When renewal time got close they sent me a reminder email with links to their renewal offers. Those offers were not competitive with others on Power To Choose. They still had very attractive plans available to new customers but those were not available to me. I ended up switching to another provider at the end of my contract due to this, but would consider going back to Discount Power in the future if I'm eligible for the new customer plans again.

    I like that they have 24 and 36 month contracts. If you get a good deal that gets the price locked in for a long time.

    Billing and Account Manager Errors

     I signed up a 18 months power contract with Discount Power in September 2018 with auto pay in my account. I received my first bill in October and the payment due date was on Oct. 29, 2018. I received a payment confirmation e-mail on Oct. 29, 2018 from Discount Power stated that they have received my payment on that date. Today, October 31, 2018, I received a disconnection e-mail from Discount Power to state that my account was past due. I called the customer service right away and they admitted that it was a communication error by them. The representative told me they would correct this error. From now on, I will really need to pay attention to the billing. I will make sure that they will not charge extra to my account.

    Will make you fool

     Dont go with them, they will make you fool. My average billing is monthly $60 - 80, but last month i got $ 290 for 2 Bedroom Apartment. I asked them why its so high, then they told me its may be very cold weather in Houston. I asked 2 months ago Houston was very warm, then my bill should be $500 and I set auto temperature 67, so it can come 2100 Kwh usages. If you have 4-5 bedroom house, then you have to ready to pay $1000 every month.

    They are not ready to help and its a fake company.

    Poor Bill Processing / Customer Service

     Just transferred to Discount Power. Process was easy, but it took a while to get my first statement. First payment made from online banking on 9/22; due date was 9/29. Discount Power is not capable of electronic payments, so credit union sent a paper check - no different than how other non-electronic accounts are handled. Received disconnect notice on 10/2 BY EMAIL. Called Discount's customer service, who stated that they only email notices. She was very terse, bordering on rude. Said to give it a few more days to allow the payment to post. Credit union verified that the check was sent, but that the check was never cashed or returned. Received a mail notice of power disconnect on 10/5. Again contacted customer service, and again got a person who obviously would rather be doing something else. The check still had not been posted, so I ended up paying by credit card over the phone. She - like the previous agent - stated that Discount Power recommends to not use online banking, and that it could take up to 12 days for them to post a paper check. They tried everything to get me to add my checking account or credit card information to the Discount Power customer portal for my account, but after this first experience right out of the box, I do not trust them, and do not want them in charge of my account information. If I continue to have payment issues with this company, I will file with the PUC, and have my account nullified and move my business elsewhere, to a company who has some idea of what customer service should be. I fear that Discount Power's statement process does not allow time for manual check payment by the due date, thereby ensuring that they can charge additional late fees to customers.

    Great Company

     I have been with them for almost two years. The plan price was great. I appreciate the fact that their billing is straightforward and dependable. (The company that I had before them did their billing at odd times so it was difficult to tell if the bill was too high or not.)

    Beware of outrageous late fees

     If you are late with your payment by even a day, you will get hit with two charges: late fee and disconnect fee amounting to over $50. Even if it's their fault when the website malfunctions and bills are not being emailed to customers as expected. So if you are one of those people who is always on top of your bills or if you are willing to let them take money out of your account automatically, you will be ok. Otherwise, look elsewhere or risk loosing all those savings you are hoping to get by signing up with this company.

    Terrible Billing and Account Management

     I have excellent credit scores (in the 800s) and always pay my bills before they are due. I received a Delinquency and Disconnect Notice from Discount Power on 5 days AFTER they deposited my check. I have back records that prove they received my check and and deposited it before the payment was due, yet I still received a delinquency / discount notice. When I called customer service that could not confirm receipt of the check...all they could tell me was that I have until the 5th of the next month before being disconnected and to check back before that time to see if they can verify my check has been deposited. This is nuts!

    Rip-off at end of contract

     Everything was Ok until my contract ended. I was on autopay and did not notice that I had not received the paper billing in June or July. This was convenient for them right after my contract had ended and my rate went up so I would not catch it until it hit my credit card billing. True I should have been on top of it and I will set a calendar reminder when I sign up for the new replacement provider. My previous provider was nice enough to send a reminder and suggest one of their current plans as a replacement just before the contract ended. In addition to this they added a $5 manual billing charge for each of the 2 houses each month even though they had my card and automatically charged it.

    2nd Renewal-Great $$

     Renewed with Discount for the 2nd time. The rates were the lowest when I signed up 2 years ago and they've offered me virtually the same renewal rate 2 years in a row. Both renewal offers have been significantly less than what is on the current market for other providers. Sign up was simple and I have never had a need to contact Discount for anything in the 2 plus years of service. Would highly recommend Discount Power.

The company can not mail out my bill a few days earlier and always charges late fees and fees for sending me a late bill.

    If only I'd checked reviews! Worst service ever

     I use the Power to Choose website to look for a good deal, and I mistakenly thought I'd found one. Discount Power sends out disconnection notices within two days of the due date, regardless of whether the bill has been received or not, and charges for the notice - not the actual disconnection. I was appalled to get a disconnect notice *before* I even got my very first bill!
    Their customer service and billing practices are awful.

    When Contract is Up - Switch Providers

     The prices are fine for new customers. When the contract is up switch providers. My renewal offer was higher than my current offer. I called to see if a better renewal offer could be given seeing as more competitive offers were available (at nearly half the rate) at other companies. I spoke with a monotone sounding agent who did not seem interested in retaining me. I signed up with a new company in a matter of a half hour and called Discount Power back to let them know I would be leaving when my contract was up. The agent did not seem concerned. Moral of the story, it is business. Know the game. When your contract is up be ready to switch to the next best "new customer" offering by another electricity provider. I am now going from around 9 cents per kWh plus the $5 per month to pay the bill fee to a flat around 5 cents per kWh (without the $5 to pay the bill fee). Nice.

    works for me

     This is my 4th electricity provider. At this point, I'm just looking for the cheapest provider. All providers have lots of fine print making it not easy to comparison shop, even among different plans from the same provider. However, switching is easy. They took my order, there was no disruption in service, you have to sign up for auto bill pay in order to not get charged the extra service fee (which they tell you when you sign up.) 3 months later, no issues, just the lowest power bills I've ever experienced. Discount Power is a no frills operation. No weekly emails reporting your usage. The website is primitive. I have not had to contact customer service. But if all you care about is low cost power, this is the place.

    Excellent rates...poor billing management, worst customer service

     Even though they offer very attractive and competitive rates, their billing management needs a lot of improvement as well as their customer service section.
    You have to be clever and carefully check your bill every month. I had two bad experiences, the first one regarding charges not disclosed in the bill and the most recent involved my Lite-Up discount. Discount Power did not apply this discount even though I got them proof of my certification. After clarifying this issue, they got me a credit but they did not apologize for their mistakes.
    Basically they just do billing, representatives do not know their product/services, so you can't expect much from them at the time of resolving issues.

    It seems to me that satisfied customers are underrepresented here

     I've been with Discount Power for over a year and have had an excellent experience. Great low price, great customer service, no extra fees on my bill, bank account debited for the correct amount on the 20th of every month like clockwork. Absolutely no complaints.

    Discount Power is GREAT !!

     I signed up for the 2 year Discount Power saver - no gimmicks option with a $ .0681 per kwh fixed rate charge. which included Oncor delivery charges, in January 2016. I cancelled a contract with Reliant that was averaging 12 cents per kwh overall including Oncor and paid a cancellation fee to boot. I also signed up for direct billing to my credit card each month to avoid paying more and to eliminate any/all contingencies such as late payments etc. To date thru 5/1/16 I have saved over $230 bucks over what I would have paid Reliant and I'm under contract for 2 full years so I expect to save close to $2000 or more thru the contract period especially when it gets hot and usage is 1500kwhs or more. I CHALLENGE anyone to find a cheaper fixed rate anywhere. Do your homework thru powertochoose.org and check out the savings, BUT read the fine print. Get a FIXED no gimmicks rate that applies to any/all usage hours so you are not blindsided. . Pay your bill on time and avoid costly charges. I read all these negative reviews and they do Discount Power a disservice. My experience has been absolutely fantastic and I save , save and save.......I could not be happier. Feel free to contact me and discuss !!

    Poor Billing Management

     I have been with this provider for 8 months. At the beginning I just had a complaint on the fee they charge for not enrolling yourself in the auto-payment.
    Lately, I have received an extremely confusing bill containing a series of "debits and credits" concepts, but no explanation at all. I called asking for details but they stated that they just collect the information from AEP (field operations contractor) and they do not know the exact nature of such charges/debits. It has been a very unpleasant experience dealing with Customer Care? Representatives that are not interested at all in giving a good service.

    Customer Service

     Called this company to review plans. Wait time was very long, spoke to three different people and not one of them identified themselves when they started talking, I had to ask each of them their name. Level of knowledge of their product was little to none. How can you sell a product and not be able to answer questions to a potential client. Because their knowledge was so limited one of them started yelling and over talking me. They will not be getting my business. Customer Service is KEY, know your product, and treat each caller like you care and want their business, be professional, it goes a long way. First impression is a lasting impression. Good luck to anyone who chooses these guys, I won't.

    They Charge Your Credit Card Without Your Authorization

     It has happened twice already that I was late to pay my bill and when I login to pay the bill online, I realize that they have charged my credit card without my authorization. When I called to complain, they try to divert the conversation without denying and they don't know what to answer when you ask "who authorized this transaction". This is illegal. Beware!

    No Problems at All - Great Rate - Perfect Service

     I just renewed with Discount Power and got $0.0794 / kwh for 24 months fixed. I have been with Discount Power for 1 year. When I originally signed up I was concerned with the negative reviews regarding customer service. I went ahead anyway, and carefully followed all of the rules for signup, including sending in their CC authorization form. I have had NO PROBLEMS since signup. Every month they email my bill well in advance of the CC auto-payment, giving me time to question any charges. NO PROBLEMS. RATES AND CHARGES AS CONTRACTED. So it looks to me like folks who can't understand or don't care to follow contract terms probably just shouldn't sign contracts - or write reviews.

    OMG! They double-debited my account for the initial deposit

     Have been on them for less than 2 weeks and they have already cost me $105 in NSF fees and although I have proof they caused my account to go negative, they refuse to refund the NSF fees. They said we signed up online and got impatient and hit a button too fast and one person even told me "that's why I never trust doing anything on the internet." I told her she lives in a world kind of far from the current world because millions of people make millions of transactions online every day. I do all my shopping online and I have never had my card double debited for the same amount - EVER! I'm a software writer - I know this is a software bug and they know it too because they already have a canned response for being debited twice. Their response is that someone got impatient while signing up. So no, they didn't debit my account twice - we inadvertently paid twice and it is our fault. I got my first bill yesterday and it shows the deposit being paid only once, not twice. They did refund the $300 but their software bug still cost me over $100. I can only imagine, based on the other reviews, what kind of nightmare paying my monthly bill is going to be going forward. Really wish I'd seen these reviews prior to signing up and going to try to find a way out of this deal. The customer service people sound bored and apathetic. I ask for a manager and I get someone who sounds identical to the customer service person I'd just spoken with, or who sounds even more bored and apathetic. After many calls to them, you know the minute they answer the phone they have no intention of actually helping you.

     For the second month in a row, I have received a late fee. My payment was due 10/13/15.

The payment was applied on 10/15/15.

    Am mad as hell with this company. Calling customer service is a joke. Luckily, I only have till 3/16 before I can dump this unethical company. I would never recommend this company to anyone and urge those reading to stay clear if you are considering switching to them

    Just bad

     i've had discount power for less than 60 days and I am switching providers. I just received my first bill Friday, which says it's due later this month, but with a previous balance. They just shut off my power, and when I called to ask what was going on, they said I had until yesterday to pay the previous balance. They acknowledged they hadn't given me a disconnection notice, but refused to change the due date on the balance(till tomorrow!), or turn the power back on. It's the first time I've dealt with them and I can't believe the total lack of professionalism towards a brand new customer. When I asked to cancel my account, and what the balance was total I could expect to be deducted from my deposit, she 'wouldn't' tell me, and kept wanting me to get online( which I can't do, because, you know, power), and send an email to cancel, before finally going 'okay, fine, you're canceled.' Who knows what will actually happen?
    This whole thing is over $50.00, by the way, not some astronomical amount. I'd pay it, but I couldn't believe they'd admit they were in the wrong and expect me to sit without power for 24 hours.

    overcharged

     If one day late you get hit with penalty charges, late charges, payment charges and it just goes on and on and on. Called them after receiving my 3rd bill with added charges and they kept insisting the past 2 bills late charges were not paid. So untrue as all late charges were paid in full, after a long tug of war on this with them finally placed a request to remove.. Argued with them to remove late charges to current bill not due until another 2 weeks but they kept wanting to keep on my bill insisting that late charges have not been paid. Extremely very poor customer service. If you don't pay by or before due date you receive disconnection notice plus lots of late charge on 1 day after bill is due......soooooo outrageous. Never encountered this issue with past utility service TXU....definitely will reconsider my options.

     I was told pay by my bank then I will not have any other charges. Later I learned after payment I have to signup with Discount Power auto pay method in order not to be charged with $5 monthly fee. Discount Power never told me at time of signup I have to use their signup in fact One can NOT logon to their website since you have not start with Discount Power. Sounds like a scheme just to charge the new customer $5 per month until customer questioned the %5 fee.

    Be very careful!!!

     My plan rates are cheap and ordering it was a snap. But if you are so much as 3 days late in your payment they send out a disconnection notice... and charge you $20 plus tax for the privilege! After I complained on the phone, the agent agreed to waive the late fee for this one time; we'll see if this actually happens.

     When I signed up to transfer my service to Discount Power I was required to provide my SS#. While I hesitated, I gave it (bad move). I had not given it to any other persons in the recent 12 months. Within 8 days I was contacted about an attempt to obtain a new credit card using my SS# . I contacted Customer Service about this but was told their online application was completely secure (are any of them?). When I responded that I did not use the online application but provided all the info to one of their employees,. there was no response.

     I signed up with Discount Power. When I got, they charged me $2.00 for paper bill. I never had to pay any fees for a paper bill. When I called their customer service, no one could help. I asked for billing department, they had none. I asked for a supervisor. I talked to him and he said he would remove $2.00 paper bill fees and I would see credit. I will wait for the next bill. If it is not removed and I do not see any credit, I will report to Texas Public Utility Commission.

    DIDNT WANT TO TRY IT, BUT GAVE IT A TRY

     I had received several calls from this company Discount Power. Told them i was not interested in every single call. But when i spoke with one of their representatives, Joe he was a very well educated person with vast knowledge and passion in his job and showed me that what they actually wanted to do was just help me out with my light bill and reduce my bill to help me start saving money. He informed me of how the discount works and all the terms and procedures in order to get my discount applied Only thing i didn't appreciate was the noise in the background but after i got my discount applied i was a bit nervous of the following months and the electric bill. But it has been my 5th month now, and i am still paying under the duquesne rate.

    terrible customer service

     I called to switch the electricity to my new apartment. However, they never made the switch and claimed that I never called. I have a record to prove that I called. They were very rude to me, and were accusing me of never having made the call. They claim that they don't take those requests over the phone and that they have no record of my call. I would not recommend this company at all. I should have stayed with my previous provider of Bounce Energy.

    Disgraceful - AND fake reviews!!

     How is it that Brad S. of Houston writes the EXACT SAME REVIEW on 05.24.2011 as Adam's review on 10.24.2012?? Scam! Discount Power is posting false positive reviews but like the rest of what they do, they are too lazy to do even that correctly. Their customer service is beyond awful. How bad? You call, go through their menu, and no matter which option you choose, the phone then gives you a busy signal or cuts you off! I mean...I don't expect the world but at least have a number that works!! Switching service ASAP.

    FROM THE SITE EDITOR: Thank you for alerting me to these reviews. It's sometime difficult to catch duplicates that are entered over long periods of time. Thanks to your tip I went through and removed several Discount Power reviews that were from the same customers making multiple entries!

    Crooks

     I signed up the company a few months back at a rate of .0069. That didn't last long once I see that the fees were getting way too high I called and cancel them as my supplier. Apparently customer service sucks because my request got lost and it's been over 3 months of billing cycle I received my bill for February and it was outrageous. I called again and raised HELL so hopefully this will be the last of me contacting them. I will stick to UI.

    Improved Customer Service

     At first I was hesitant to call Discount Power due to the experience I had with them in 2011. However, after holding on the phone for an hour to speak to an Apna Energy agent, I figured I owed them a second chance. I was shocked to find that I got to speak to a representative immediately who later informed me that the management had just changed. The representative was friendly, informative, and knowledgeable about all the questions/concerns I had. He set up my account rapidly, and I was off the phone within 20 minutes!

    I am big about customer service and that is something Discount Power has tremendously improved on in the past two years. I would definitely recommend them now after their management change !!!

    Fraud Problems With Discount Power

     Discount Power's signup process has a fairly significant fatal flaw. They offer discounts for direct debit or direct charge to a credit card, but fail to take the necessary data to enable that during the signup process. As the on-line sign-up process is a secure connection, the moment the consumer selects the credit card option, the signup process should include collection of the necessary credit card data (more on this in a minute). The consumer gets an e-mail after signup indicating it contains the Electricity Facts Label and Terms of Service, which any smart consumer read before signing up, and which most consumers probably delete as so much trash mail. Camouflaged in that same e-mail is the warning that the consumer must contact Discount Power and provide bank or credit card info.

    When that does not happen, not only does the direct debit discount disappear, but they fail to grant the electronic communications discount as well, and no amount of contact can get an adequate explanation or a refund for the overcharge.

    Discount Power also fails to disclose whether the monthly meter reading is "actual" or "estimated" and during my transition away from them, I was shocked to receive two bills, the second one a credit for an overbilling the last month, based upon what is now obviously an estimated reading.

    Lastly, Discount Power demands a photocopy of the front and back of the credit card and drivers license. This is insane and of great concern from a fraud standpoint. It is tantamount to handing them a second copy of the credit card. The customer has no idea what is done with the data, how it is maintained, and most importantly, how it is disposed of when they are done with it. With an image of both the front and back of the card, the potential for fraud is huge. In fact, some months after I provided this data to them, there were several fraudulent charges to my credit card, and presumably the individual had the CCV code from the back of the credit card for them to have been authenticated. Only one firm, Discount Power, had a copy of those codes. No site that I am aware of maintains CCV data for the obvious reason that it makes fraud so much easier.

    Discount Power had some attractive rates when I signed up a year or so ago, but when that contract expired their idea of a customer loyalty program involved raising the rates, at a time when others were offering more attractive rates than the one which was expiring with Discount Power.

    Discount Power still owes me money, but as the PUC doesn't care, and the State Attorney General doesn't care, there is literally nothing I can do about it.

    Beware unethical business practices

     Becareful if you signup with Discount Power they will switch your service when it makes them the most money and they will charge you extra fees. Their customer service is horrible/non existant. They do not keep you informed of service so that they can try to get by and charge you more instead of trying to get you to renew your service at a better rate. Overall I felt I was dealing with an underhanded company.

    Warning - they do not tell the truth

     I went with Discount Power for three months.
    The first month bill was incorrect, talked to
    DP Representative, said would correct my bill.
    Next month bill, no corrections, third month,
    no corrections. Should have know better to go
    with them for a year but the representative was
    so sweet with promises, I went with them.
    Fourth bill was full of errors. Had to call the
    PUC just to get them to correct my bill. I
    have had more problems with them that I will
    not go into now. They sign a sweet song, but
    do no keep to their word. Still waiting for
    more corrections that they tell me they will
    correct.
