Pennygrabber I have been coming on here a while and did not know your history, what great steps you are making - I too have a pantry with too much stuff in, mine was a case of not being able to resist a bargain, the best of luck to you

I've just seen the flier for a!di, and they have a halogen oven on for £29.99 for a 12 litre one. Are these ovens good? They had them on sale in morries the other week, and the checkout lady said they wre good, but she may have been a bit biased!! If you think they are good - what do you cook in them?!

You can complain against the price increase if you can show your account is in credit / will balance by the end of your consumption year.
I left SP as they were continually doing this - I moved to them in a November so didn't have the summer months to build a "buffer" - however, as I'd used actualy consumption figures & it would balance out they always put it back to the original figure .... I just got sick of having to do it every 3 months.
However, despite explaining this to my new supplier and being assured they wouldn't do this - they have just tried to put my dd up by 82%:eek: - although with the comforting words "it's only for 3 months":mad: Several emails & phone calls and they have now reinstated it to the original figure as a similar situation to the SP one.
It drives me demented and makes me very angry - apart from the discount one of the reasons many people choose to pay by dd is to have roughly the same going out their account every month throughout the year - these automated reviews seem to take absolutely no account of the annual consumtion (even though this is what is used when you sign up). It also really penalises people who move during late summer/winter - if I'd have changed supplier in say March instead, there wouldn't be an issue.
I did get told along the lines of "but we pay interest on credit balances" mmmmmm well, what good is that piddling amount going to do if you've tried to take an extra £50+ from my account, it's not there or other things have failed because you've taken it, bank charges are added etc :mad:
Sorry ...... will climb down off my box - just one of those things that drives me insane - the stress of having to go through it every 3 months is really something I could do without!

I really feel for you on this, it is for this reason that I will not change my pay as you go meters. The peace of mind in knowing thats its paid for, and no nasty shocks is priceless. Also it makes me very aware of what
I am using and remembering to turn things off etc.
