in more than 10 states.

At this time they have this great NEW
program for their TEXAS residents!

Its called 
They are offering a $20 credit to Direct Energy residents of Texas to join the Power To Go program.

The Power To Go Program is a Pay as You Go electric service program.
You will receive no more paper bills every month.
You will get a text or email when your account is below a certain
amount, so that you can add funds to your electric account.
You can add funds to your account any time you want.
Pay your bill as you choose~ no due dates!

This program is AWESOME for those who cant pay the
full balance of a HUGE bill all at one time and by the due date every month!

Pay a little as you can or alot when you can. Its up to you with the Power To Go Plan!
Just keep a balance in your account and you will always have electric service!

How EASY is that!

Here is how to take advantage if this program and get
$20 credit added to your Power To Go account!

(i) Via online at , clicking on the enrollment button, and providing this number 481675  in the Referral Number field; or
(ii) By calling Direct Energy at 1-888-684-3750, selecting the menu items to enroll, and providing the sales agent with the Participant’s Referral Number which is 481675.

You will receive a $20 credit to YOUR account balance after your have been a customer for 30 days!


I joined this program over 2 year ago and think its so awesome!
I don't have to worry about a due dates, bills, or even disconnect notices! 
With Power to Go, I sign into my account (when i get an email or a Text alert) and add to my balance!
I can also online and see how much electric I have used. and how many days of electric I  have remaining. 
If I see the daily balance is down to 7 days or less I add $5 or $10 to the account. 
When I signed up for the Power to Go program my Kwph fee went down over 2 cents an hour.   I have nothing but good things to say about this program. 
I pay when I want and the amount I want! 
There is now, no reason you should ever have your electric service disconnected. 
With the Power To Go plan you know exactly how many days your balance will give you of electricity:)
I give this electric service plan a 5 out of 5.

Direct Energy's customer service is awesome. 
They answered all my questions very clear and in a way I could understood.when I first signed up :)
You can add a balance to your account online, over the phone or at a pay station. If you pay over the phone it is free However, if you pay at a station there is a $1 fee to add money to your account.

If you do get the power turned off cuz you go negative balance, make a payment and the service is back on with in 2 hours of payment.

Since i have been a member I have saved MORE THAN $1600 in energy costs! 
I like that i can check the amount of electric I have used and I know what it costs for me to wash clothes or run the vacs thru the house.

Do you know what it costs you??

If you live in Texas and want to save more on your electric service I recommend Direct energy and the Power to go plan!

disclosure~ I am a member of direct energys power to go program and i know lots of Texans who could use the lower rate, the savings and great sign up bonus!!

Perky pet~ Antique Glass Bottle Hummingbird feeder

Your leading source for bird feeders
Shop wild bird feeders
seed feeders, hummingbird feeders and much more. 

More Than Just Bird Feeders!
Our Bird Library is filled with information on hummingbirds, wild birds,
and orioles, such as their species, characteristics, nesting habits and food preferences. Birdwatching 101 outlines great bird watching locations, equipment, and landscaping tips to attract our fine-feathered friends.

AS a member of the Perky Pet Blogger Review Panel I receive a new bird feeder every month to review and check out new birds in our area. 

This month I received the 

Perky-Pet® Green Antique Bottle Hummingbird Feeder

The Perky-Pet® Green Antique Bottle Hummingbird Feeder will bring a classic touch to your yard and provide your tiny feathered friends with a tasty treat!  This large capacity feeder holds 24 ounces of nectar to ensure that there will be plenty of nectar to go around!  The metal base has four flower feeding ports with brushed silver accents.  Cleaning is simple with the removable base and hanging is a breeze with the attached metal hanger.

Product Features:

  • Green antique bottle
  • Hardened glass nectar container
  • 4 decorative feeding ports
  • Brushed silver base
  • Base comes apart for easy cleaning

The kids and I really like this feeder. We have seen many hummingbirds in our area since we have hung it up. This feeder was so easy to use and hang. We filled it with nectar and hung it up on a tree branch. It took only a few days for the hummingbirds to show up. When a few started stopping by they must have spread the word to their other hummingbird friends cuz more are stopping in daily. The Antique Glass Bottle hummingbird feeder is available in blue, red or green. They are $19.90. It well worth the price for the family share time the bird feeder brings. When the kids see a new bird they want to look them up and see what kind of bird it is and where they are from. I give it a 5 out of 5. It is very sturdy and a great family conversation maker! 

The kiddos luv the Perky Pet blogger program. They like to see what birds are coming this month!

disclosure~ I received a free Antique glass bottle hummingbird feeder in exchange for the review.
