All those energy comparison sites assume that when your fixed deal ends …All those energy comparison sites assume that when your fixed deal ends you will end up on standard variable for the rest of the period and therefore they fool you saying that you will save hundreds if you switch (unless you are on standard var in the first place which is unlikely). We know they raise prices every year so why would you think they offer you a better tarrif? I'm on npower and they have theirs calculator which also claims I'll save 60 if I switch to a new fixed deal, but my calculator tells me I'll be 25 worse off. Other providers would have saved me a tenner if switched so pointless.It's all a con.


I used the Martin Lewis Energy Club in 2016 and got a cracking deal for my parents and I for a years fixed. When it was due to end I did the comparison again and the quote they gave for my parents was actually more expensive even with cash back than what was available when I went on their current suppliers website for a quote. What I’m saying is no one should assume they are getting the best deal and you should search each provider individually. Yes it’s more time consuming but if you can save it’s worth it.
What's next car insurance mega thread?
You are sposed to compare the price per unit and then move only if it is worth it, not look at their annual assumptions because that's where you go wrong.
Over the last few years I've found that switching energy suppliers at this time of year is a bad move. Tariffs tend to be significantly cheaper between May and August; which is when their is a glut of cheap gas available to suppliers. As stated above I also use MSE Cheap Energy Club for comparisons.

Yeah, the surprising thing for me is that there aren't movies available to stream on 4K on Netflix - so really just Netflix and Amazon series and a few made-for-TV movies. I believe Sky Q has Ultra HD movies and sport but don't know whether this is just some content. In my opinion, unless you're sitting close to the TV, it's not THAT much better than 1080 HD - probably would be on bigger sizes though.. Finally worth mentioning the sound is excellent on this TV - packs a punch without any distortion.
Oh and the smart TV apps are excellent too - very slick and Netflix looks amazing

The voucher on top of the cashback is a little better but going direct to …The voucher on top of the cashback is a little better but going direct to SSE via TCB does mean you'll pay a higher monthly rate. I looked at SSE direct and then did a search via ComparetheMarket and SSE came up again, with the same deal but this time the offer was £40 cheaper per month thats £480 cheaper per year - thats better than both the voucher and the cash back.

​Loads of deals like this now.. I know you can't expect something for nothing but these deals are basically giving you your own money so they can gain your custom. Don't know how they get away with it, car insurance, home insurance, broadband, tv packages all doing this scam... It's not honest at all.
SSE was heartless. Last year, I had to switch my elderly neighbour's electricity for him. One lone frail man paying more than £1100 for a 3 bedroom house a year. I switched for him so that he only paid £14 per month - the one with Ebico and then I changed his gas to Daligas. But now I am with Ebico zero (with Nottingham and this month they actually lowered my DD to £9 whilst most companies will use winter as an excuse to bulk up their DDs.. I am now with Zog for gas! I had to chase Daligas up for my refund as they raised their gas DD for me during winter months, using the Grid's recommendation as an excuse. I don't mind their raising the tariffs, but going mute on my excess payments and only paid up when I emailed them was not nice. Was refunded £11 after emailing them.
Worth getting a quote based on your usage
You'd save more money by getting a cheaper dual fuel deal.
In my experience SSE are a dodgy bunch of feckers. Me, my other half and my ma signed up with Ebico some time back. We were sent the SSE gas card and key for electric (all PAYG) and in all cases loaded the meters with their own tariffs which were more expensive and all had standing charges.. 3 months and 5 cards later everything was sorted. Wonder how many other Ebico customers they pulled that trick on that haven't twigged..

I think you misread what MSE said (because I also read it); it says they arent big enough to have an accurate rating AND dont use the MSE system to swap, so you would have to do it yourself

Filling in the the forms took about 5 minutes, almost exactly the same time as going through MSE's system..

You have to understand, MSE isnt unbiased, they get paid a LOT to promote the big guys; so create rules as an excuse not to list the smaller, cheaper providers; this never happened before the guy who created the website sold out about 18 months ago; the small guys were there right next to the big guys.

This is not an unlimited tariff in the true sense, they expect you to use …This is not an unlimited tariff in the true sense, they expect you to use the same amount as the previous years consumption and then within reason, i.e a very cold winter they will not charge any extra if you were to use double, but should the weather be very similar and your usage was to double then next year you would either be charged double per month or they would move you to a pay as you go tariff. The tariff is mainly a safe guard against unexpected bills, not an opportunity to use large amounts of energy you would not normally use if you were pay as you go.

I'm on the 18 month for £21 contract for the line rental and 'free fibre'. I haven't had any problems honestly, at the beginning I wasn't sure about download speeds but I think it was less about throttling and just our area. Our area does only get 17mb fibre - which is very disappointing but thats across the board. But once I began streaming all of my content and its brilliant - paid or unpaid services worked great.

I had a free energy meter from EDF for many years and found it very useful in an all-electric home. The software would not work on newer operating systems and eventually the device stopped working altogether. I would buy another - this one looks to offer much more - but the government is planning to get everyone onto smart meters, which will also cover gas and be supplied and fitted free of charge by 2020. I'll wait to see what's on offer and then consider the downsides of letting energy companies know when I'm at home/making a cup of tea or I'll go private with an energy meter like this.



Fair comment! A few of my personal requirements are the ability to view online and remotely, the current usage and usage over the last day, week, month and year and as soon as possible. Sense would be to hold out! I don't need it to cover gas - can you imagine a DIY kit for that?! - I too found the site "a bit rough around the edges" but I've decided to take a gamble (as I usually do with crowd founded projects!). With all thats in the news at the moment, I don't consider anything online as "secure" but as long as it's just me and the hackers being able to see my energy consumption rather than an open ticket in for "The Big Six" then that sits just fine with me.

I have 16 free electric days with rewards when will I get them its now winter when people could do with them

They stopped the free weekend electric now as its reached its target so when I asked they said no but you will stay on it but I do get 16 days free electric when they decide to give it me as it can take upto 12 months and its only free 9am to 5pm I was told so they work out what you use in the 12 months waiting to calculate and then credit for that amount.



Terms on site -11. Your average daily electricity usage is calculated over a period of 6 months if you are a credit customer and over a period of 12 months if you are a

prepayment customer. To calculate the amount of credit you receive for your electricity usage between 9am-5pm per day, we apply a percentage of

35% to your average daily electricity usage and use the unit rate of your current tariff at the time that the credit is applied.
I got 20 free days but what does that mean.. when do they get taken off my bill?

My interpretation was they work out average usage and give you a credit x16 in my case. Am I wrong as folk talking about turning the electricity up?


This is why I originally pointed out that the saving isnt that much. Hypothetical situation (very simplified):

Period of 10 days. Use 100kw/h on day 1, 0kw/h for the next 9 days.
Situation 1 you pay sod all as you claim day 1 free.
Situation 2 as is the case here you pay for 90kw/h and get 10kw/h free

Now expand that, 20 days on the same rule you get to pay for 95kw/h etc.

So the longer the period the less you actually get back and as this is over 6 months/12 months..... Well you see where i'm going with this. Tight arse BG ********.

In order to select nearest first, go to the top right where it says sort, …In order to select nearest first, go to the top right where it says sort, the default is best match, hover over this and select nearest first from the drop down menu. If for the sake of example we assume that you live in near Birmingham, you will find companies that will fit a Worcester Greenstar 30i Combi Boiler for less than £1300. Obviously if you want to move the boiler or add any extras, the price will go up. I would suggest that you add a Magnaclean filter if one is not already fitted, that should add about £120. One last suggestion, if you’ve got a hot water tank, keep it. It is so much more pleasant to live with than a combi, especially when there is more than one person in the house.

And anyone who takes a £1000 boiler and charges £300 to fit is either far too cheap or not doing it right.

Bought these a year ago, so far two have ended up failing. Both failed the
same way producing high frequency flashing. Avoid Osram.
What really annoys me is that the old 150W bulbs (useful for large spaces) don't seem to have been replaced by any low-energy equivalents - at least not at sensible prices.

There must be others out there who want brighter than 100W equivalent?
ordered some of these earlier in the year and one has stop working already after only light use
These are only really good for small spaces like cupboards. My favourite is the Philips ones that provide 1521 lumens that for me seem to be closest to their halogen counterparts
