Advantage Oil Budget Plan

Help eliminate the burden of your winter heating costs with the Advantage Oil Budget Plan! Our convenient payment plan is designed to make your winter energy payments more manageable and allows fuel oil customers to spread big heating bills out over a 12 month period.

With AOBP, we calculate your estimated consumption and determine your monthly payment amount based on how much fuel you’ve typically used in the past, then divide the total into 12 equal monthly payments. AO Budget Plans are adjusted quarterly to make sure you are paying the lowest possible monthly payment. At the end of the Budget Plan year, should you end up with a credit balance on your account, it can be applied to the upcoming season’s plan.

No matter how much fuel you use – even if it’s two deliveries a month – you’ll still get the same low monthly bill. 

The AO Budget Plan starts in May and always ends the following April.

Automatic Credit Card Payments

Advantage Oil offers customers the option to charge their credit card for deliveries, service, or monthly budget payments automatically and will send an email receipt to notify them of the charge. With this convenient payment option, your fuel and service payments will be made with ease.

Prompt Payment Discount

Advantage Oil’s daily discount price is available to any customer who pays for their fuel within (10) ten days of delivery. Payments received after (10) ten days are subject to a $0.10 per gallon late fee. If you need or prefer to have a longer window of time to make your payment, our standard billing terms are 30 days. Please call our office at (570) 296-8585 with any questions you may have regarding our Prompt Payment Discount or our standard billing terms.
