These rates are awful.
Bulb, not sure you know what you're doing

I think you will find just about all suppliers will raise their prices in the coming months.
Bulb are not daft, they know that virtually all their customers switched to them because of their competitive prices, and they can just as easily switch elsewhere if need be.

Maybe. But the difference between Bulb's prices and the best deals on the market is now considerable.
Outfox the Market: £291/year cheaper (variable, green)
Avro Energy: £180/year cheaper (fixed, not green)
Octopus: £116/year cheaper (fixed, green)
British Gas: £101/year cheaper (fixed, not green, includes boiler cover)
Green Energy Network: £78/year cheaper (18 month fix, green)
Engine: £21/year cheaper (3 year fix, green
In some cases, there's cheaper deals than the above. But I've swayed, where possible, toward suppliers with good feedback. Maybe these prices will increase over the next few months. But for now, there's a good opportunity that lock in a significantly better rate.
Maybe Bulb should think about ditching, or suspending, the expensive referral scheme in order to keep prices competitive? I'll be surprised if they don't lose a lot of customers over this rise. And attracting new ones becomes more difficult if prices aren't very good.

No Bulb wont allow a second £50 according to something I read on their community boards. I have mixed feelings about this £50 enticement. It did encourage me to move to them, but their prices have gone up twice since then and I cant see gas/electricity prices ever coming down again. Whereas I initially liked the idea of simplified pricing with bulb, now I'm going back to the idea of fixed contracts where at least you know you wont get another hike til the end of your contract.
