Zoe Phethean is one of the hundreds of people from Bournemouth who have saved huge amounts of money on their energy bills by signing up to an auto-switching service called Flipper.

She saved a whopping £540 off her annual bill when she first signed up and has been automatically switched to better deals three more times over the past two years.

As a Flipper member, she – along with more than 30,000 other savvy households – benefits from monthly checks of the energy market and is automatically ‘flipped’ to a new supplier when the service finds her a better deal.

Zoe said: “I had used comparison sites in the past, but found it complicated and I wasn’t sure I was getting the best deals, so when I read about Flipper in a newspaper article, I thought I would sign up”.

“Using Flipper has been really simple and straight forward. As a working single mother with 3 teenage boys I’m always busy, so having Flipper search and switch for me has been a godsend. They keep me updated by email, so I always know when they have found a better deal and when I need to provide a meter readings, which I used to forget to do”.

“The money I have saved using Flipper has meant I have been able to take my boys on some fantastic days out and giving them memories to treasure”.

What’s in it for me?

Energy prices are now falling for the first time in years. The best deals available are £360/year cheaper than the price of a Standard or ‘Default’ tariff, which is what 2 in 5 UK households are on. So, switching yourself a better tariff could save you hundreds of pounds.

But trying to find the best deal and switch suppliers can be a real hassle and confusing too, as there are over 350 tariffs from 60 energy suppliers to choose from.

Many people use a price comparison website, but these don’t always show the best tariffs, only those they earn commission from, and if you use one of these sites you’ll have to do all the work to complete the switch yourself.

It’s no wonder people end up sticking with their current supplier.

Flipper is different. It does all the hard work for you, removing the hassle and admin, while providing you with the reassurance that you’re on the cheapest tariff.

It checks the market for better deals every month across the widest range of energy providers and automatically ‘flips’ you when a saving of more than £50 per year can be made.

How can I be guaranteed Flipper will find the best possible deals?

Bournemouth Echo:

Flipper is truly independent as it does not take any commission payments from any of the energy providers. This means it can flip customers to more deals, more often maximising their savings.

And Flipper members can also set their own preferences, such as ‘Only Green Tariffs’ or ‘Only Larger Suppliers’ meaning they are in control of the deals they are switched to.  

It’s free to sign up and you only pay a small annual membership fee once you’ve accepted your first flip and begin saving. This is normally £30 per year, but Echo readers can get £5 Off by using the code 5OffEcho.
