This Dutch provider is offering free energy (but there’s a catch)

Say what? ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ’ก

With many finding the cost of living increasingly unaffordable here in the Netherlands, energy stands out as a major wallet-drainer. One Dutch provider’s solution? Free energy! ๐Ÿ’ธ

Although the thought of getting something for free sounds about as realistic as a stroopwafel magically appearing before your eyes, Dutch energy company Budget Energie appears set on making this a reality.

However, there’s a catch. (Isn’t there always? ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ)

The spring and summer weekend deal

For a period between April and August 2024, Budget Energie plans to offer free energy during the weekends. Yep, you read that right: free energy.

That sounds a great deal, except… oh wait, ‘free energy’ is actually only free between the hours of 12 PM to 5 PM.

Okรฉ, given how expensive everything is, that’s actually quite handy โ€” but can anyone just sign up for a Budget Energie contract and take advantage of this weekend deal?

Thankfully, that part’s true! Provided that you’ve signed up for a one-year contract and are part of a household, you can nab this tasty deal all for yourself. ๐Ÿ‘‡
