Two big-name providers have launched cheap tariffs since we started our event. This often happens. We can’t confirm it’s a direct response, but it’s certainly very plausible that it is. As they’re popular and offer big savings compared with their standard deals, we wanted to detail them.

British Gas fix. 100% renewable. For new AND existing custs. Save £277/yr on typical use. This BG Energy and Boiler Cover Green Oct 2020v2 dual-fuel deal is ONLY available via comparison sites (not direct), incl via our link, which also gives an extra £25 MSE cashback. Factor that in and it’s £901/yr on typical use.

You also get a year’s ‘free’ boiler insurance if you don’t already have its cover, but it auto-renews after a year, so cancel then if you don’t want it. You MUST agree to get free smart meters (one for gas, one for elec) installed within 3mths if you don’t have ’em already. That isn’t an issue though: they just give automatic meter readings.

MSE customer service score: 40% ‘great’, 33% ‘poor’ (200 votes).
Renewable? 100% renewable elec & 100% carbon offset gas.
Fixed? Yes, until 31 Oct 2020.
Early exit fees? £60 if you leave 49+ days before the fix ends.
Dual-fuel only? Yes.
Payment: Monthly direct debit is cheapest, but avail other ways.
Smart meters: You’ll need to get ’em.

Scottish Power fix. Cheapest Big 6. For new AND existing custs. Save £281/yr. The new Scottish Power Super Saver November 2020 B4 tariff is actually the cheapest of the Big 6, but only just. We’ve put it second as SP has the worst customer service record of the Big 6. It’s working on trying to improve that, so how much of this is legacy from people burnt by poor billing and more years ago, and how much is current is tough to tell. Yet it’s worth being aware.

Again, this deal is ONLY via comparison sites (not direct). Our link above gives you the extra £25 MSE dual-fuel cashback, which makes it £897/yr based on typical dual-fuel use. As with BG, you MUST arrange to have free smart meters (one for gas, one for elec) installed within 3mths if you don’t have ’em already.

MSE customer service score: 18% ‘great’, 56% ‘poor’ (198 votes).
Renewable? No.
Fixed? Yes, until 30 Nov 2020.
Early exit fees? £30/fuel if you leave 49+ days before the fix ends.
Dual-fuel only? No. It can be dual-fuel or elec-only (incl Eco 7).
Payment: Monthly direct debit is cheapest, but avail other ways.
Smart meters: You’ll need to get ’em.
