Last week, my power company wanted to cut me a deal.

What would I need to verify this is a good idea? A couple clicks to bring up my billing history solved the problem.

I spend about $145 MORE over the course of the year with the savings plan. That's a real world math problem that I was interested in solving. The offer is tempting. No more power bill anxiety! Click!

Would you consider this financial literacy? I'd say so. No different than understanding a credit card cash back system in my opinion.
