    Am on the SP online fixed price energy (November 2013) and was so easy to switch to the January 2014 (i.e. end December 2013) tariff - SP put you on a list and switch you over as soon as the tariff becomes available. Confirm same pricing and no penalty charges. Very good customer service including a call-back and one reason we decided to stay with SP rather than risk EDF.

    I'm in the same boat, on EDF fixed s@ver V2 ending 30.9.12. Just phoned EDF and opted for the Blue +Price Promise April 2014. EDF confirmed no exit fees payable, as the new tarrif doesn't start until 1st Oct.

    Used the 01138207832 number to get through straight away (spent far too much time on hold on their 0800 number since signing up to avoid that at all costs!) - just done it now but the tariff starts immediately but no exit fees to pay. Can't believe I'm staying with EDF but no exit fees on the new tariff so will be looking out for offers in future.

    Hi, just switched on https://www.pages05.net/sites/feelbetter - my online version 10 tariff will end 30/09/12. Got this message at the end:-


    We will update your energy account(s) to Blue +Price Promise April 2014 as soon as your current tariff ends on 30 September 2012.

    You won't have to do a thing and your supply won't be interrupted.

    You will receive further details on Blue +Price Promise April 2014 a few days after 1 October once your current tariff has come to an end.

    If you pay by monthly Direct Debit we may write to you around 1 October with details of your new monthly Direct Debit payments. Your payments may change to reflect the price of your new tariff.

    That's the correct link for switching from fixed saver v2 to Blue 2014.
  • Dave2963
    I'm also on the fixed saver v2 due to end 30/9/12. I was aware that there are number of EDF deals ending on the same date so being was thinking they may end the "Blue +Price Promise April 2014" prior to then. I was thinking that they may end it on 31/8/12 and having seen that EDF have removed the offer from comparison sites it can't be long before they remove it for existing ones. So i've just done mine with haste. Hope i've made the right choice!!! Although the new tariff means i can transfer without penalty if a better one replaces it.

    To arrange the transfer for the 1/10/12 you need to use the link that is in starMs' reply at 9.02pm 30/8/12 . If you do it via your online account it may do it straight away which may leave you open to early exit fees as discussed at length on another thread (Hopefully they wouldn't as you are remaining with EDF).

    Once you complete the form on the above link you get an email saying you'll be transferred on 1/10/12

    I've been in my new flat and on SSE for a year and was looking to switch, once I had a year's usage to work with. Then the SSE price hike "hit the fan". So, I switched on 23 August. Evidently, it'll save me 92.73 a year at the current prices.

    MSE: the gift that keeps on giving.

    I used a switching site to request a switch from SSE to Blue +Price Promise April 2014 yesterday (30th August). I know there is a delay until the switch actually takes place, so what happens if EDF pull this tariff offer before my switch goes through?

    Will I still be switched to the Blue +Price Promise April 2014 at the tariff advertised yesterday, or will I end up with some other rate?

    Cheers
  • redfrock
    Thanks for the info. I am in the process of switching from Eon to SP's November '13 fixed tariff. I have just rung to ask to be switched to the January '14 one instead and they have put a note on my account so that as soon as the switchover is complete they will put me on the newer tariff.

    Very helpful Customer service rep and although it said the waiting time was 57 minutes, it was in fact only 11, on an 0800 number as well.

    Just rang EDF to confirm our switch to the Apr 2014 Blue tariff which we requested on Wednesday was going ahead as plaaned

    Got through immediately on the 0800 number

    A very helpful lady told me that the deal has not been withdrawn and is still available now.

    Our switch is going ahead as planned

    The deal has been pulled from the switching sites so that usually means it is entering its last few days of availability.

    No.I was on the same one which ends on 30/9/12.I rang them 2 days ago with the same doubt, but they just swapped it and its already showing in my online account.Its just 2pm dearer for me than the Fixed saver2.
    I didn't know they were going to pull the plug and was thinking to call them up by the end of the contract.
    Saved in the nick of time...Phew.....

    EDF pulling Blue+Price Promise 2014
    I've read everything very carefully and I hope my switch which began on 23rd August will go through ok!

    When I read that it was being pulled, words such as "just my luck" flooded into my head. Couldn't find a contact e-mail address for them, haven't time or money to hang on for ages to speak to nice people.
