2017-18 Payment Plans

Our Budget Plan and Pricing Programs

Our Budget Payment Plan

Avoid the difficulty of big heating bills in the winter. Get even, consistent, predictable payments each month by enrolling in our Budget Payment Plan.

How Does It Work?

We help you figure out approximately how much heating oil you will need for the upcoming year. We break the payments for those gallons into 11 equal payments. When you enroll in a budget plan, you start saving immediately because you receive a Budget Plan Discount of $.03/gallon.

Budget Plans usually start in June and run until the following May. If you start later than June, you monthly payments will be higher because the program always ends in May, so you would be spreading your payments over fewer months. In addition, you add any of our Special Pricing Plans (below) to your Budget Plan, and you can add in a Service Contract, too, and pay for it across the year.

How To Save More: Save $.10/Gallon!

Autopay your Budget Plan on your MasterCard or Visa and save an additional $.07 per gallon! Call or login to your account for details. 

 


Our Special Pricing Programs

Any Dixon automatic delivery customer can participate in a Special Pricing Program or can choose to receive market price on day of delivery.

Many people find that they are more comfortable with a “known known” rather than leaving things to chance. Truthfully, we cannot advise you whether these plans will benefit you in the long run. Oil is a commodity and we simply cannot predict future pricing, as much as we wish we could. These Special Pricing Programs offer you ways to protect your pricing and even out payments. 

Plan 1 – Price Cap – This year it’s $2.59/gallon

Get a guaranteed capped price-per-gallon. No matter what happens, you will not pay more than your cap price. And we offer it with “Downside Protection,”—if our posted price is lower, you will get the advantage of the lesser amount.

How Does It Work?

You specify the number of gallons you would like to have capped. This can be all or a portion of your annual usage (we can help you figure that out). A Price Cap contract requires an additional $.10/gallon (put it on an auto-pay Budget Plan and the fee is a wash!). This means that if you are protecting the pricing on 600 gallons, you will pay a fee of $60 for that protection, and to get the downside coverage. Think of it like insurance. 

Plan 2 – Fixed Price – This year it’s $2.49/gallon

A Fixed Price program is just that, a guaranteed price per gallon that will not go up or down for the course of your contract.

How Does It Work?

You pre-purchase your annual supply of heating oil at a fixed rate, while maintaining the convenience of automatic delivery.

With a Fixed Price Plan, no matter which way the market moves, your price remains the same. If the price drops, you do not pay less. What you DO get with it, is the ability to plan, the security of knowing you are all set for the whole winter, no matter what.

Since we cannot know whether the price of oil will go up or down, we cannot offer advice or a recommendation about whether or not this will be advantageous program for you. There are no additional fees with this plan.
