While we know that some of you can be put off switching energy providers, many of you have already discovered that it can be worth it and have benefited from some amazing energy deals.
So what kind of savings can be made with these switches? Some of the figures may surprise you. Customers who switched with us in October 2016 to Sainsbury’s Energy Price Promise October 2017 made an average saving of £791.55! While not everyone might be able to find such a saving, you’ve nothing to lose by having a look.
We’ve also drawn out the energy deals that will be ending in November 2016 so if yours is on the list, you may want to take the opportunity to find a new deal that could make some savings.
The Big 6
In recent months we’ve seen more and more people leaving the Big 6. In October 2016 21.81% switched from one of the Big 6 providers as you found that greater savings could be made elsewhere, usually with some of the smaller suppliers. But more people, 23.15%, switched to the Big 6 this month continuing a three month trend. It’s true that great deals can be found everywhere, so it’s a good idea to compare to find the right one to meet your needs.
Who has the most to gain?
Last month, those of you aged over 80 years old saved the most money by switching suppliers, with an average saving of £584.12 for this age group. And those of you aged 50-64 came in close second with an average saving of £444.91 – but there are savings to be made whatever your age. It really could pay to compare.
