When we are looking at ways to save a lot of money really easily, switching our gas and electric providers is one of those jobs that takes a few minutes but can yield really big results. Here is how I saved £163 by switching my gas and electric, plus a £50 Bulb referral credit for you if you switch using my link.
I am not new to switching our gas and electric providers – it is something I like to do every year, and it can help you save money too. I spend an afternoon or so going through our current bills and seeing where savings can be made. I haven't done that this month yet, however I was scrolling through Instagram and came across a post from DebtFreeAt23 about how she switched to save, and got a £50 bonus for using a refer a friend link. What's more, if someone signed up using a refer a friend link, they too would get £50 credit applied to their gas & electricity. I decided to give it a go.
I was also encouraged by The Money Saving Mum who saved over £300 by switching.
Comparing my energy costs with Bulb
When I first got to the Bulb website I could run a very quick price comparison, based on how many rooms are in our house.
This figure was significantly more than we are currently paying, but I saw a link to get a more accurate price comparison.
This is a massive saving of £163 a year, before I even applied my £50 credit for using a refer a friend link.
Switching to Bulb
I decided that a saving of £163 was worth the effort of switching, so I continued the process of switching to Bulb.
It literally took me minutes!
I was then emailed a list of important dates, like when I need to submit my readings to Bulb, etc.
The whole process was incredibly simple!
Why switch to Bulb?
Apart from the obvious savings and the generous £50 Bulb referral credit (which you can get by using my link), Bulb are a very green energy provider.
Their electricity is 100% renewable, and their gas is 10% green gas.
In comparison, NPower, our previous provider, was just 7.3% green.

This is a refer a friend link, meaning that I will also get £50 for referring you. Thank you for using my link!
Don't forget to start referring your friends and family once you have made the switch.
