Me and my wife signed up for ACN along with my parents and it has been a disappointment from the get-go. I was introduced to it through my sister that thought she could make some extra money on the side doing it, and so we figured we'd help her out and save a few bucks at the same time.....were we ever wrong!
Our home hydro and gas bills were supposed to go down. THEY DID NOT! THEY WENT UP! We called to complain to ACN's Energy department and they said that they could not do anything for me as "I should have read the fine print in the contract". I figured that was so convenient.
We have been in it for 3 years, and have 2 more years to go, otherwise we have to pay a cancellation fee of over $1000 to get out of both of them.
Further, my parents internet is always going off, along with their phones have crappy reception. We all wish my sister never got involved, and now we'll have to wait it our until our contract is up.
Monetary Loss: $1200.
