First home buyers luck
IMAGINE winning a competition you didn’t even know you were entered into and that prize was worth $1500.
That’s what happened for Bells Creek couple Emma Abell and Cyle Rhodes.
The new home owners had moved into their house about a month before receiving the call from Unitywater to say they’d won the competition, giving them free water and sewerage services for a year.
“We were stoked! We weren’t even aware of the competition.
“We hadn’t received a Unitywater bill yet and we won’t have to pay one for a whole year,” said Emma.
Emma said the couple recently brought home miniature dachshund Archie and joked they “got him for free” as the money would have otherwise been spent on their bills.
“We were getting him anyway, but it’s nice that we don’t have to pay for our water for a while,” she said.
The Caloundra winner said it was easier to receive bills by email as all the paperwork was in one place.
Unitywater executive manager customer and community Katherine Gee said more than 133,000 customers had signed up to receive their bills electronically.
“Customers can view their account online at any time and it’s secure, convenient and mobile,” said Ms Gee.
“Plus, going paperless is a great way to help the environment.
“For those who are worried they might forget to pay their bill, we have a reminder service which is activated on the date the bill is due if it hasn’t already been paid.”
