In spring this year we finally switched our energy company. We had stuck with the same energy company for four years before this, since we moved in to our home. Every year I get new quotes for insurances, but I had never realised we could save money and were allowed to choose our own energy supplier. It simply never crossed my mind until I saw some money bloggers were switching and saving hundreds!
I checked an online comparison tool and it said we’d save £264 per year if we switched to Bulb. Upon further investigation of this company I had never heard of before, we were able to find a referral link which gave us £50 credit to come off our first bill, saving us even more! We also found a lot more reasons to make the switch.
Read on to discover 5 reasons why you should seriously consider switching to Bulb as your energy supplier and get £50 credit by using my referral link.
1. Get £50 credit using my referral link
By clicking on my own Bulb referral link you can receive £50 credit to your account when you sign up. This will be deducted from your first bill. Who doesn’t love to save money on household bills?
2. Get £50 credit for every friend you refer
Once signed up, you’ll get your very own referral link. You can then get £50 credit for you and a friend for every person who uses your link. Win-win!
3. Help the planet with 100% renewable energy and 10% green gas
They use 100% renewable electricity and 10% green gas, so by making the switch you can help the planet and invest in a more sustainable future. They also support independent renewable energy generator companies in our own country. They say ‘every year, the average Bulb member saves 1.3 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. That’s the same as planting 655 trees.’
4. Potentially save money compared to your current energy supplier
Years ago we switched to a renewable energy company, but it was so expensive. Now companies like Bulb are really competitive and they say on their website they are 15% cheaper than the standard Big Six energy tariffs. They claim most people will save £200 per year and we should save £264 based on our old supplier and the tariff we were on.
5. They’ll pay any exit fees you incur from your current supplier
Most suppliers lock you in to your tariff for around one year and will charge you an exit fee if you wish to leave. Bulb have no exit fees themselves, so you can leave whenever you like. They will also pay your current exit fees if you decide to switch to them and incur exit fee charges with your current supplier. This means you don’t even have to wait until the end of your current tariff to make the switch if you are concerned about the fees – Bulb have you covered!
They are basically making it really easy to switch to a renewable energy company and giving us all several great reasons to do so. Not only will they pay any exit fees from current suppliers, not tie us in with exit fees if we want to leave them, but they also offer £50 referral credit for anyone you refer to them using your referral link AND they could even be hundreds of pounds cheaper than your current energy tariffs! Phew!
That’s a lot of reasons to make that switch and not forgetting that you’ll get £50 credit towards your first bill if you use my referral link: https://bulb.co.uk/refer/benjamins1007
I’ve just switched to Bulb this month. This is my third switch this year. I’m hoping they turn out to be my last one for a while. Trying to get the balance between affordable and competent when it comes to energy suppliers is a tricky balancing act.
Absolutely! They were the cheapest for us when we did a comparison, but I also like the fact they use renewable electricity. They’ve also been very responsive to messages which is always a great sign 🙂
Their app is also brilliant. They remind you it’s meter read time, you send the reading and ‘hey presto’ it’s used to calculate your bill. They are very organised. I love it because it means I can calculate how much I’m using (like a SMART metre but without the metre) and over time I can use it to calculate my yearly bill. I just hope they don’t go under like so many of the competition.
I agree the app is great. I used it the other day to amend how much my monthly payment is as I was paying a bit too much. So handy to be able to control things like that on the app and not have to go on a desktop to login. Fingers crossed they stick around and keep bills as low as possible 🙂
