We set up Flipper because we’re sick of paying more than we need to for energy – and we’re sure that you are too.
But when we tried to find a better deal, we noticed that comparison sites just provided us a complex (and inaccurate) list of tariffs to compare. We’d have to do all the hard work, and the middle-man would take a slice of commission.
We came up with a better way of saving money. We came up with Flipper.
Flipper takes your actual energy usage, finds the best available deal and switches to the cheapest provider. We automatically compare tariffs on a regular basis, ensuring that you’re always on the best possible deal.
And because we work for you instead of taking commission from suppliers, you can be certain that the best possible deal is the one that suits you, not us. We don’t sell your details and we don’t send you advertising messages.
All we do is save you money.
Flipper works for you – helping you to save hundreds of pounds per year, all for less than the cost of a cup of coffee per month.
