Hi All, just spent a couple of hours on Uswitch and Money Supermarket to see if we could switch to cheaper tarriffs. Interestingly when we actually checked the real usage against their prices we found that the savings estimated were completely wrong. More importantly even the highest saving suppliers would cost more than we are paying now.
Looking into this a bit deeper I found that the estimations of what we were being charged (by our current supplier) were completely inaccurate. This means that anyone who uses these sites will be given wrong information.
Now obviously these sites get a commission for referring customers, in my opinion this should be classed as miss-selling.
I would be interested to find out if anyone has actually saved money on their utility bills after taking the advice of these sites.
