Switchcraft – how to save money on your energy bills without the faff

Post in association with Switchcraft

Today I’m going to talk about Switchcraft, a clever new energy switching company.

Every time I think about Switchcraft I imagine Frank Sinatra. He is singing, obviously, and does a little dance move which involves him swishing an electricity bill about with a flourish and pointing at a gas meter with a cane.

Are you picturing it?

It’s basically this, but with more utilities based dance moves:


Frank Sinatra has literally nothing to do with Switchcraft the energy switching company, I just wanted to get you in a relaxed frame of mind.

Because that’s basically what Switchcraft do – they take all of the hassle out of switching energy suppliers, on an ongoing basis, so that you can just sit back, stick the gramophone on, and never think about your gas bill again.

So what makes Switchcraft different?

An excellent question, I’m glad you asked.

The great thing about Switchcraft is that you just sign up, ONCE, and that’s literally it. Job done. There are plenty of companies out there who will help you compare one off prices, but that involves sitting down regularly and going through tariffs and options. It’s always in the back of your mind, whether or not you should be checking prices again, and quite frankly it’s BORING.

With Switchcraft there’s none of that. No more worrying every year about doing a comparison and organising a switch, no more making excuses to those people in the street who ask you if you want to save money on your energy bills, no more huddling together for warmth in your weird jumper made for two. Everything is taken care of.

Once you’ve signed up, Switchcraft keep track of all the deals on your behalf. If a better deal comes along, they switch you automatically without you having to do anything at all. They let you know beforehand of course, and you can opt out of any switch, but it means that all of the hard work is going on behind the scenes without you ever having to worry about whether or not you could be saving money.

In case you’re wondering that this means you’ll be switching every week or something, it doesn’t. Switchcraft reckon that they’ll switch you roughly once a year, so exit fees aren’t an issue. Average savings so far are £313, year after year, and half of all users sign up on their phones in less than five minutes. It really is that easy.

So what’s the catch?

There isn’t one.

Switchcraft is totally free to use and you can opt out of a switch any time you want to. Switchcraft make their money by earning commission from the energy providers, but their recommendations are unbiased and all based on the best options for you.

    Ah this sounds great. I must admit, we’ve never switched, but our current plan is ending in May and I’m going to switch for the first time as can save £400 a year. Can’t believe I’ve not realised to switch every year. Doh!

    Ok… game-changer! I’ve never heard of this but it already satisfies my ocd/organisation needs! Have sent the link to my boyfriend to have a peek too, but thank you so much! I’m sure our current plan is ending pretty soon.

          I sent it to my eldest daughter Bee because we have a thing where if either of us does anything cute we say it’s really cuppy :-D I have no idea if that’s just us, but I like it!
