Utility Bills

Not the case with my DD. The guarantee was valid for pre-advised DD's and the bank refunded me £3,000 that had been debited over a period of 4 years in various pre-advised amounts.

The estimate reads were wrong and when Robin Hood Energy would not accept my correct reads, I called the bank and told them it was £3,000 and they refunded. It was up to Robin Hood Energy to then dispute the 'recall'.

No harm in asking your bank, is my view, instead of long-winded conversations with inept utility companies. Robin Hood Energy were a shambles (local authority owned). Scottish Power are usually very good and our company was owed £5,500 after a meter reading error at work, which SP refunded immediately without fuss or disputing how the error occurred.

@jepZog are currently the cheapest for gas but your 2.2p rate must have been contracted some time ago. Current Zog rate for gas is 3.1p

@PaulCP Nov 2020. Crazy cheap deal. The comparison websites are tricky, you have to look at all the rates etc...not the 'headline' saving. I found Zog after scrolling through 15 other so called 'cheaper' rates. Low SC also.

The comparison web sites are known to "push" the deals that maximise their commission. They are accountable for, overall, significantly pushing up the general cost of bills through the amount of commission they have demanded in the past. With energy retailers operating margins being at -5 to +6% gross these commissions eventually get passed on to the consumers.

@march - Just switched to Octopus, you should see £50 coming your way off your bill and the same off my first one, thank you! 

If anyone else wishes to switch, please feel free to use Marc's code or I now have one too :D

This is my code and will get us both £50 if anyone is going to swap to Octopus.

A quick look at Octopus seems to say that there are no exit fees so you could leave early when better deals become available, even if you initially took a 1 or 2 year deal, but you'd have to check that's what they mean by Exit Fees = 0

That, plus they had one of the lowest tariff rates, is exactly the reason why I switched to Octopus 2 months back 👍

Just checked our SSEB who we have been with this last couple of years. There tariff is much the same s Octopus, but apparently they upped our direct debit by £14 per month saying there estimate of our consumption was to low and they had increased it to prevent any shortfall. Bullocks. We are over £400 in credit AFTER the last bill was paid.
