    Looks like it's being supplied by Southern Electric and will be at their regular prices.

    I suppose customer service counts, but I imagine it will just be dealt with the current Southern Electric customer services.

    it will probably be expensive but at least you can take it back after christmas if you don't like it
  • Plushchris
    Sounds like SE better plan with the £15 voucher if you reduce energy consumption by 10%

    Although if you go to SE direct its £15 cash and its electric comes from renewable resources.

    M&S&SE are going to have to come up with something better to offer.
    Missing Tesco R&R since Feb '07 & now a "Tesco veteran" apparently!
