And - as Dad’s usually are - he was right. This maxim doesn’t just apply to buying a new car or clothes or furniture, it’s universal – it’s even true when it comes to switching your energy supplier.
“ Hard work never hurt anyone, did it? ”
For many years now, people have typically used a Price Comparison Site to switch their supplier. A key attraction being that these sites are free to use, but when you look at the service they actually offer is it worth it?
“ It’s not how much you earn, it’s how much you save. ”
So, while you don’t pay to use a Comparison Site, when you think about it - why would you?
“Hard work never hurt anyone” but no one ever said hard work was fun…Instead, how about paying a small annual fee to a service called Flipper that:
All of which means you’ll save more money on your bill, which is important given ‘money doesn’t grow on trees’! Flipper members save an average of £385 when they are first flipped. That sounds like something worth signing up to – especially as the annual fee is just £30 per year, no matter how many times you get switched.
“ Act in haste, repent at leisure. ”
My Dad thought so and signed up… eventually. He thought Flipper sounded great, but he’d been a British Gas customer for many years and while he knew he was paying more than he should, he found being with a big supplier ‘re-assuring’. However, after seeing his bills continually rise last year, he finally decided enough was enough.
“ The important things in life… aren’t things. ”
So my Dad is now a Flipper member – and a very happy one at that.
He is also now a Grandad, and spending time with his 5 grandkids is much more fun than managing his energy bills – and he now gets to spoil them (even more) with the money he is saving.
He still tells me “You get what you pay for” and thanks to Flipper I’ve been able to show him he was absolutely right!
