    Since you are not switching supplier in these circumstances, I would not expect Quidco or TCB to pay out for such a switch.

    I was assured that the switch WAS eligible - TCB have just told me that USwitch have declined because the annual amount of the contract wasn't sensible -for some reason it appeared as £11001200 !!!I've appealed via TCB. I did get cash back for both previous EON switches via external sites.

    Does anyone know if there will be an offer for those on Prepayment meters?

    I'm moving on the 2nd to a new flat where both gas and electric are on prepay and I'm obviously looking to get the best deal. I still need to investigate if I can change to a credit meter. The whole building (14 flats) are on prepay so not sure it will be possible.

    "Our Big Switch Event IV starts on 2 Feb – to join in, you need to sign up to Cheap Energy Club above, or be subscribed to our weekly email, by 31 Jan."




    What's point of not allowing anybody who wants to sign up after 2nd February, though? I expect they will just say : "Go on, have it anyway.".


    If you can't have it, you want it more?

    Remember, you have no option but to sign up to a Deemed Contract with the existing supplier to the flat BEFORE you initiate a switch to a new supplier.

    It is OFGEM rules, you must have expressed an interest prior to the details being released, so MSE have to give a date by which all interested parties have made a choice to get the details.

    And MSE have been given permission to say that any weekly email subscriber has already ask for details as have the members of the CEC. So the regulator has made it easy for MSE to maximise the number of potential switchers.

    Finally sorry I got the cut off date wrong by 2 days though.

    Its never too late to save money. ;)

    Even if you would get hit with an early exit charge if you leave the deal you have signed up to, the cashback the CEC offer will probably cover most or all of that cost.

    Of course you only switch if it does save you money, which for your gas at least it probably won't do.
    (As I understand it, you don't use much gas, presumably less than about 1500kWh per year based on the supplier/tariff you chose compared to the average of 13300kWh, and don't like paying monthly by DD which you can bet your bottom dollar this collective tariff will insist on to get their best price)
  • So will there be MEGA SAVINGs from Midnight/tomorrow . . . .

    If the meters are within your own flat, or you have your own 24/7 access to them, then that should not matter. However you will have to pay for a meter switch, and possibly again at the end of tenancy to switch back.
    No free lunch, and no free laptop ;)
