Since we launched in January 2018 we’ve been working our socks off to ensure people don’t overpay on their energy! We’ve grown very quickly and we’re helping more and more people outsource the hassle of switching their energy.
For a long time we’ve known people were feeling frustrated with energy suppliers. The comparison website model looked great on the surface but wasn’t actually helping because 70% of people were still on standard variable tariffs – the most expensive!
In the words of Tej from Dragons’ Den ‘It’s great when a company answers an age-old problem.’ It was clear there needed to be change and the response to autoswitching has been phenomenal, our growth certainly shows that!
We now have over 100,000 members!!! (We’ve been growing so fast that at the time of writing this blog we actually have over 130,000 members!)
From helping 1,123 members back in January 2018 to helping over 100,000 members today. We’re really proud to be exposing the loyalty tax and saving people money on their energy bills.
So much so we went all out and bought some balloons to celebrate! Now, let me tell you something… helium balloons are harder to pose with than you think! That pesky number 1 kept floating away.
Having helped so many people is a very proud moment for us! We celebrated by popping open the bubbly and singing karaoke until the early hours of the morning. An unexpected boy band even emerged out of our team too! Singing everything from Complicated by Avril Lavigne to Barbie Girl by Aqua!
But this celebration isn’t about us, it’s about the 100,000 members we’re switching away from overpaying. We love helping people and it’s your comments that really put a spring in our step day to day! So who have we helped?
Switched with Look After My Bills
A loyal customer, Jonathan had been with Npower for 7 years. His bills started off at £250 but they gradually crept up “I just accepted that I have a family of four. We all leave the lights on and use too much gas. It was when it had gone up to 450 a month that I thought I must do something about it.”
Jonathan tried to give his supplier a chance to offer him a better deal. “I always approach companies to say I’m thinking of changing, but Npower said I was on their best tariff and there wasn’t anything they could do.”
Jonathan first saw Look After My Bills pitching on Dragons Den and being in business himself, he followed the success of the journey. After being disappointed that his supplier couldn’t offer him a cheaper deal. Jonathan decided to try our ‘small, innovative, personal company’. “Once I signed up the communication that came though after was friendly, informative, it told us what you’re going to be doing, roughly when you’re going to do it, when I should expect to hear from you.”
Jonathan saved £925.30 by automatically switching from Npower’s standard tariff to a fixed deal with E.On.
Jayne, 59, from Yorkshire, never had the time to use a comparison website.
Jayne had been with Scottish Power for four years after they turned up at the door and sold her a deal. Since then she hasn’t switched her energy, “I knew I should do something when the deal came to an end but life just got in the way”.
In March, Jayne signed up and thinks the service is great “I don’t have to do anything, someone else is taking control on my behalf. It’s the best thing since sliced bread.”
What made Jayne the happiest about joining Look After My Bills? “The email saying my bills will be £370 cheaper – that’s two flights to spain! Everyone’s got have gas and electricity but there’s money you can spend on something more interesting.”
Jayne saved: £370.88 by switching from Scottish Power’s standard tariff to a fixed deal with isupply.
