Helpful Information

Shopping Uswitch - Compare Energy

Read on for some tips, advice and inspiration on how you can make the most of your Uswitch cashback.

Why shop with Uswitch Compare Energy?

Uswitch was established in September 2000 as a way for customers to save money on the back of the deregulation of gas and electricity markets. Today the company is still going strong and is still best-known for its energy service. Whilst you’re onsite, you might also want to see if you can save money on services, such as Uswitch broadband and Uswitch mobile.

Uswitch is completely free to use and makes money by charging suppliers a fee when it switches customers over to them. This means you get all the research done for you, great deals and virtually all the paperwork handled, without paying a penny extra.

Get the best energy deals for you on Uswitch gas and electric

It’s easy to compare energy prices to find great deals on Uswitch electricity and Uswitch Gas in your area. To get started, you’ll need your postcode and your latest gas and electricity bill. If you don’t have one handy, you’ll be asked a few extra questions when filling out the comparison tool form.

When you enter your details into the comparison tool, you'll get personalised results based on your location and current electricity and gas usage. They'll show offers from many of the big providers, alongside some smaller suppliers you might not have heard of (deregulation made the market a much bigger place). All you need to do is see how much money you could save, and pick the deal that's right for you.

You can switch domestic energy suppliers at any time, but you’ll need to check your current supplier energy agreement to see if you’ll be able to switch freely, or whether you’ll need to pay any early exit fees.

Using Quidco’s Uswitch cashback offers

To get your Quidco Uswitch cashback, click on the ‘Get Cashback’ button. You’ll go through to Uswitch where you can compare energy suppliers. When you’ve found a quote you’re happy with and you switch providers, we’ll verify your transaction and you’ll receive your cashback.

Saving with Uswitch energy

The energy prices you find on Uswitch could save you more money than you might expect, especially if you haven’t changed your gas and electricity tariffs in a while. From 1 April, energy bills for many households in Britain increased. For most people, energy suppliers can't offer cheaper deals right now. Uswitch is still here to help. We have advice on what this means for you, as well as simple tips to keep your bills down.

There is no one cheapest energy provider for all, which is why Uswitch bases its results on your usage and location. You’ll likely see the biggest savings if you’ve been on a standard plan; this is the default tariff you get if you haven’t requested a specific plan. It is often the most expensive tariff provider by a supplier, and isn’t protected from price rises.

Compare energy tariffs with expert help

You can do more than compare energy tariffs on the Uswitch site. You’ll also find a range of guides that address frequently asked questions, such as how energy meters work, and profile specific energy suppliers.

All of these Uswitch guides are there to help you learn more about your gas and electricity supply, and ultimately save more money on your bills through Uswitch energy. They're broken down into handy topic sections, including Tariffs, Switching, Bills and more, and they're particularly useful for users who are buying energy for the first time, or who haven’t switched before. There's also a whole section devoted to saving energy, so you can keep driving those costs down even after you've made the switch.

Own a business? Try Uswitch Business Energy

Energy bills aren't just a domestic issue. You can also get help finding the best deals with Uswitch business electricity and gas tariffs – and if you're a business owner, you'll know how valuable that can be.

In order to get help from Uswitch business energy, you’ll need to enter your name and business details online to get a callback. The process is a bit different from finding domestic tariffs, as prices for business electricity and gas are based on bespoke quotes from each supplier. You’ll also only be able to switch during your renewal period, so you’ll need to find details of when this will take place. Even so, Uswitch can take some of the legwork out of the switching process, and make it much more transparent. It's worth checking the T&Cs before going ahead with this, as business switches might not be eligible for cashback.

5 ways to make the most of your Uswitch cashback

If it’s your first time using Uswitch and you’re wondering where to begin, check out the suggestions below…

1. Switch to a great dual-fuel deal…

Do you use both gas and electricity at home? Sometimes dual fuel tariffs can work out cheaper. You can select dual fuel as an option when doing your Uswitch gas and electricity price comparison so you can see if it will benefit you.

When you get your results, you'll be able to see the terms of the dual fuel plans available to you. This includes whether the supplier will impose an early exit fee if you’d like to switch again during the term of the tariff. Pay close attention to that part, because some dual fuel tariffs have an exit fee for each energy provided, landing you with a larger-than-expected cost.

2. …or just gas, electricity or oil

If you use a single power at home, or are only looking to change one of the tariffs you’re on, you’ll also find single fuel deals on Uswitch. This one's really simple: just enter your postcode, input your current spend or usage for the fuel you want to switch, then compare the results.

You can also compare prices for heating oil, as Uswitch works in partnership with BoilerJuice.com – so whatever you use to heat and power your home, you could well be in line for some savings.

3. Get cover for your boiler

If you've ever had a boiler breakdown, you don't need us to tell you how valuable cover can be – it's no fun at all being stuck without heating and hot water. Uswitch also allows you to compare boiler insurance, and while that doesn't prevent the boiler breaking down in the first place, it does mean you can be sure someone will be along to fix or replace it.

Search options and filters include monthly or annual payments, level of cover and more, so it's easy to find the right option at the right price.

4. Pick your provider

One of the standout reasons for using a comparison service like Uswitch is to discover suppliers you may not have heard of before. Uswitch energy providers include the big names, but also many smaller independent ones too. Going for the smaller ones doesn't mean buying blind – each supplier comes with a small blurb explaining what they’re about, as well as a Uswitch customer rating.

This feature's perfect if you want to find an energy provider with particular features or values. With a little reading you'll be able to see who uses green or renewable energy, or reinvests profits into social or community schemes.

5. Find great service as well as great prices

The lowest price isn’t everything – you could be relying on your new supplier for years, so you also need to know what kind of customer service you can expect. At Uswitch you can read customer reviews of each energy supplier, as well as aggregated customer service ratings.

Uswitch customer ratings are based on independent YouGov surveys, looking at overall satisfaction, transfer process, value for money, customer service, and how likely someone would be to recommend the supplier. In other words: you can trust them.
