    If this process is going to rely on Ofgem's cranky definition of "savings" then I think I'll give it a miss.

    How exactly does this work’ You then have 14 days to let it know if you don't want to switch, otherwise Weflip will notify the new provider which will then move over your supply.’?

    The energy contract is with the supplier not a third-party. SLCs give a 14 day cooling off period. Are people using this service going to see switches taking anything from 35 to 49 days from application?

    Sounds like a minefield to me and fit only for those too lazy to do their own comparisons and switch their own supplies. What is to stop these potential fly-by-nights from switching people every other day if there is money in it for them regardless of how much it costs their "customers"? Fools rush in...

    I took it upon myself to investigate a trifle; it had custard, jelly, soggy sponge things...
