    This isn't designed to be a one off comparison site - there's already plenty of those available.

    This is supposed to be an ongoing monitoring system that will advise you should a lower (as per your desired level) supplier/tariff ever become available. :)

    Looks like there is no cheaper tariff than the one I'm on now. Good to know :)

    With suppliers changing prices a lot I can see it giving out a lot of false change nows, as suppliers dont all update at the same time. Also whos the independant verifications done by if any.

    If the site can give £30, what kickback is it getting?
    Don't put your trust into an Experian score - it is not a number any bank will ever use & it is generally a waste of money to purchase it. They are also selling you insurance you dont need.

    You can get a good idea of the commission some suppliers pay by looking at cashback sites such as topcashback that claims to offer 100% (or even 101%) cashback ... but is that even really all the money they receive. If so, how on earth do they survive?

    Anyway, what does it matter?

    £30 cashback is £30 more than if you go direct. :beer:

    Mmmmm, I think I see why moneysupermarket.com bought the site. No doubt this will be the first of many ways MSE users will be channelled into moneysupermarket.

    I guess it was to be expected - no idea if its a good or bad service but is what I thought would start to happen.

    Just joined the energy club and it found me an annual saving of £47....did 3 price comparison sites yesterday (uswitch, compare the market and moneysuper market) and they thew out savings of £249!! With Co-op and Swalec and First Utilities as my best options. This new club that promised to find me the best deal only stumped up a 47 quid saving and had me staying with the extortionate British Gas! What's up with that!!
