Hey guys. 


My 12 month contract is up with Orcon, do they offer deals and bonuses if I were to sign on for another 12 or 24 months? I notice they offer deals for “new customers only” so I would imagine i wouldn’t be eligible for them.


In the past they have offered me a bundle deal with power which is very appealing but will have to wait as I am currently locked in with my current power provider for another 12 or so months. 


Prior to this we were with spark for 28 years so the concept of switching to get a deal/re-signing bonuses is quite foreign.

In my experience with other companies (Power, ISP etc), if you ask, you'll get some form of deal, however it won't usually match that of the "new customer" ones.


E.g. New customers might be offered three months free service, whereas an existing customer might be offered two.

11 months ago they gave me a $150 credit when I resigned for 12 months.  I've also had a free static IP for a number of years.

Find a better deal elsewhere, then call the and see if they will match it.  I would caution however to consider the big picture, a few dollars saved might not be worth the hassle of changing, particularly if you are otherwise satisfied with the service.
