Switched Your Energy Supplier to XOOM? You May Be Eligible for a Refund


If you switched your home’s energy supplier to XOOM Energy anytime between Jan. 1, 2013, and Dec. 31, 2014, the rebate information below applies to you. Hurry, though: you only have until next Monday to get your refund paperwork to XOOM.

That’s a shame, since energy choice is a good idea — in theory at least.
