New Utility Price Comparison Site Launches to Help Struggling Householders Beat Inflation-Busting Price Hikes
LONDON, August 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
A brand new utility price comparison site launches this month as penny-pinching Brits
are placed under increasing pressure by salary cuts and household bill hikes.
Switch2Cheaper [http://www.switch2cheaper.com ] is designed to help consumers find the
best possible deal on a range of everyday products and services including utility bills,
mobile phones, personal finance, mortgages, broadband and insurance. Its launch comes as
research suggests the average household income has fallen by 7% since May – heaping more
misery on the one in five householders who admit to a monthly struggle to pay utility
bills – and a slew of providers announce price increases for the winter months.
Although the Bank of England has only just released its inflation forecast predicting
increased energy prices, five million homes have already been told to expect a GBP100 leap
in electricity and gas bills from October by SSE, the nation’s second largest energy
supplier. BT has also announced that it will increase the cost of its phone calls, line
rental and broadband services by as much as 6% in January while water bills have also
swelled with inflation busting increases across England and Wales.
With a dedicated team of money saving experts scouring the country for the best deals
on gas and electricity [http://www.switch2cheaper.com/gas-electricity ], car insurance and
life’s other essentials [http://www.switch2cheaper.com/insurance ], Switch2Cheaper is a
financial lifeline that can help cut the cost of living in budget-busting Britain. The
site will offer a free membership to all visitors, providing daily information and advice
on the best deals, biggest savings and most useful vouchers and coupons. It pledges to
members to find the best deals and help them to switch to a lower cost package across any
of its areas of expertise.
