Payment Options from Pioneer: A Simple Way to Fewer Surprises in 2019/20
Posted: May 6, 2019
In life, some surprises are welcome…and some not so much.
When it comes to paying your propane or heating oil bill, most people want as few surprises as possible, since they usually mean that your bill is higher than you expected.
Fortunately, there are a few easy ways to make your heating bills more predictable in the year ahead, thanks to convenient services from Pioneer Oil and Propane. Here’s how these options can put your mind at ease in 2019-20:
- Smart Pay Monthly Payment Plan – With our Smart Pay Monthly Payment Plan (available for heating oil or propane), we will divide your annual heating bill into 11 equal monthly payments, with one adjustment payment per year. That means you will pay the same amount for your heat month after month no matter how much fuel you use, rather than paying for 80 percent of your annual heating bill over a three or four month period. There are no fees or finance charges for this service.
- Price Cap protection – With our Price Cap program (also available for heating oil or propane) you’ll never be surprised by rising oil or propane prices – they will never go higher than they are when you enter into the contract. But with a price cap, the price you pay for your fuel could go lower – meaning you can take advantage of any dips in the market price that may come along*.
Smart Pay can be combined with Price Cap to make your payments even more predictable – or with Auto Pay or E-billing to make your bill paying experience more convenient (and less wasteful) than ever before.
Of course you can always Prebuy your fuel (at pre-season prices, including a 10-cent per gallon discount) or pay market price if you prefer – the choice is always yours when you become a Pioneer Oil and Propane customer.
Enrollment for our Pioneer Pricing Plans kicks off in June, so be ready! Contact us today to talk about which plan might be right for you.
