How to compare gas and electricity deals

candle next to laptop

No-one likes to be hit with a mammoth utility bill at the end of the month. But with energy prices all over the place, what’s the best way to keep costs down? Well, the sensible thing to do is to compare energy suppliers regularly and, if you find a better deal, switch. If you keep an eye on how much you are spending on gas and electricity and look around to see whether other suppliers could offer you a better tariff, you could spend less.

Suppliers often offer better deals to new customers, but to keep ahead of the game and bag those deals you need to be on the ball – comparing utility prices and switching your supplier regularly. But, there’s one problem. Comparing energy prices and switching providers is a great money-saving tactic, but it can be incredibly time-consuming.

Compare energy prices with Switchcraft

Switchcraft compares the best prices, so you don’t have to. Sounds, pretty good, doesn’t it?

Our automated system finds a huge range of tariff and supplier options to help you compare gas and electricity. And, once you’ve compared them once, and chosen a deal that works for you, you’ll never have to compare gas and electricity prices again. Yup, you heard that right. You’ll never have to compare utility prices again.

How does that work? Well, once we have your details and know the type of deal you would prefer, our system constantly searches for a better deal for you. And, once it finds it, it switches you automatically, with no fuss. So, once you’ve compared energy prices with us once, you’ll never ever have to do it again! In fact, we switch people to better gas and electricity deals around once a year, every year – without them having to do a thing.

Let’s face it, comparing energy prices was never going to be one for the bucket list. Climb Kilimanjaro? Maybe. Trek the Great Wall of China? Yes, please. Spend five hours surgically attached to your laptop searching ‘compare gas and electricity tariffs’? No. No thanks. So, if someone else can take it off your hands, why not?
