Small suppliers go below £1,000 in energy shake-up
There's an energy price war – but only among the smaller suppliers. Last week Ovo launched a £998 tariff, and First Utility responded this week with an energy plan costing £4 less. Its iSave Fixed July 2015 (v20) deal is now the cheapest on the market at £994.
Mark Todd at the comparison site energyhelpline.com said: "Both Ovo and First Utility have fixed-rate tariffs costing less than £1,000 a year for a typical dual-fuel home. These new deals have created a massive gulf between them and the big suppliers' standard prices that most consumers pay.
"According to Ofgem [the industry regulator], a typical gas and electricity bill is £1,315 a year and provides no price guarantee for households. With the smaller suppliers, the cheapest bill is £994 and this provides a price guarantee until August 2015. This paints a very black and white picture for consumers in terms of the need to shop around to get the best energy deal.
"Consumers need to step back and ask themselves where they stand on standard prices. Customers should not take the gamble on their hard-earned cash, as switching can save them up to £321 a year."
Asda says it's master of the universe with Galaxy deal
Asda is claiming an exclusive for its £99 offer on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, which was previously sold at £139. The tablet comes with a high-quality camera, wi-fi, touchscreen display, 3G connectivity and an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
