    Eon have been trumpeting this new tariff to the newspapers but I can't find it on the website, at least not the actual tariffs.

    You need to get a quote to find the prices.

    Obviously designed to fool the hard of thinking.

    It gives me 3 tariffs, Saver V10, Cap&Track and SV but I am not a current customer. If I am logged into my account it will not quote me, maybe because my account is not closed and billed.

    This is our recently released Cap and Track tariff. At the moment, it's only available through our website or phone channels. It's not on the comparison sites yet. This is something we're working on.

    It's a bit different from the tariffs we've offered before. It's a fixed tariff with unit prices and standing charges guaranteed not to increase above set levels for the duration of the agreement. Prices, though, could come down. What we do is track the market and review prices every 3 months. If the average price has gone down, we'll lower the unit rates. They could also go up but will never go above the original quoted price for the duration of the contract.

    At the moment, it's only available to Dual Fuel customers who pay with a Monthly Direct Debit. We're looking into an electricity only version. Our usual discounts (paperless billing and dual fuel) don't apply but lower standing charges for paying with a Monthly Direct Debit is still there. There are no exit fees for changing supplier.

    It's a brand new tariff and not related to our existing offers. More details are available on our website. For the time being, you'll need to manually compare your quote with the rest of the market as listed on the independent comparison sites.

    Hope this explains poppasmurf_bewdley.

    That's right molerat. For prices, you'll need to go through the quote tool. The unit rates and daily standing charges can be found in the Tariff Information Label near the bottom of the product description after choosing 'Review.'

    Odd you're only seeing the three tariffs you mention. Our Fixed 1 Year version 22 should be there too. It doesn't matter that you're not a customer. All the tariffs we currently have available are for both new and existing customers.

    If your old account hasn't fully closed due to an incomplete change of supplier (we spoke about this recently on another thread), this will stop you using the quote tool when logged into your online account. Once fully closed and billed, you'll be able to use the quote tool again. For the time being, if you go through our website without logging in, you'll be able to find the prices by using the quote tool there.

    Hope this explains molerat.

    Rates finally look somewhat decent for me. Still more than "roll a six for a bill ltd." I'm currently with, but close enough to tempt me.
    Almost.

    Loss of the £30 dual fuel and paperless discounts pushes it over my £100 a year threshold, but if and when it appears on CEC, if it has £30 cashback like other E.ON tariffs I'll start a switch. If not, I have some thinking to do.

    Hmm, it all seems a bit ambiguous, to me and as molerat says, designed to fool the hard of thinking.

    Eon's new tariff will always be £100 cheaper than the average - but should you switch?
    Cheaper than the always? average? what? I'm never going to be average and it's almost £100 more expensive than my current tariff.


    See highighted - Prices would therefore have to fall for them to go up again, (albeit, not above the quoted tariff price). I honestly don't believe prices are going to be so mobile or fall to a huge extent, in the next year.

    Who is expecting prices to fall dramatically in the current climate? There's talk of prices rising with the current political state / Brexit etc. It is only speculation, though. But i would certainly be looking for a longer fix again if i saw a very competitive deal.

    With this new tariff still almost £100 more expensive than my current tariff, and £3 more expensive than the Fixed v10 1 year tariff, (including discounts,) the difference is negligible, and I would be tempted to opt for whatever version was around at the time, in preference, (depending on cost).

    I'm glad i still have 13 months remaining on my current tariff, but i shall be watching to see what happens. I personally feel it's maybe a slightly cheaper tariff, with uncertain benefits and added administration.

    Have a good weekend, Malc
    Fred - Where's your get up and go?

    Barney - It just got up and went.

    Adding this tariff to the independent comparison sites is something we're looking at Raxiel.

    We use an impartial third party index to track the market and set the price. We re-price the tariff each day and then take an average every 3 months. Consequently, we need to make sure the tariff prices can be updated daily through channels like the comparison sites. We're working on a solution and will make an announcement once it's in place. I'm afraid, I don't have a timeframe yet.

    Glad we've given you something to think about Raxiel.

    When we say this new tariff will be a £100 cheaper than the average market price, this is based on a Medium User profile as per the latest Ofgem Typical Daily Consumption Values. Totally appreciate this won't be the case for everyone. If they wish, customers can see the index we use to track the market to help them understand how we've priced their tariff.

    As I mentioned to Raxiel, we re-price the tariff each day and then take an average every 3 months. The index tracks the movement of every energy tariff available for sale at any particular time within the UK and includes all payment types. If a new supplier joins the market, though, they may not be included immediately.

    If the average price changes, we'll alter the unit prices we charge accordingly but these will never go above the quoted prices. There's no added admin for customers as we do all the work.

    Understand this tariff won't be for everyone but hope it's of interest to some. There's more information on our website.

    You have a good weekend, too, fredandwilma. I'll be back on Tuesday if you've any further questions although Helena will be here before that if you need her.
