uhm. monopolist mafias, taking governments by the balls, outrageous profits, fucking telling me to wear 2 jumpers at home this winter........ angry

We changed to them the other day too - capped until August 2009.

SunshineSmith Fri 01-Aug-08 11:27:51

sorry i am a thicko sometimes - capped? wos that?

WideWebWitch Fri 01-Aug-08 11:29:33

Def get smug points for that
we are npower for both and so far it's cheapest.

hopelesshousewife Fri 01-Aug-08 11:58:32

We changed to Scottish Power capped rate on Sunday too via Uswitch, but we have to wait up to six weeks for acknowlegement from SP -

Can someone tell me if it's definitely switched as soon as you apply with Uswitch or may I be stuck with my old ones - can they still turn you down..... (DH's voice of doom on my smugness)

SirDigbyChickenCaesar Fri 01-Aug-08 11:59:54

we capped on sunday.
bloody power companies

kaz33 Fri 01-Aug-08 12:01:29

We capped last night to EON - lets hope it goes through.

filthymindedvixen Fri 01-Aug-08 12:02:17

I went on the switch site recommended by mse and we didn't cap because it turned out we were already paying less with brit gas than we would be for the capped amount. Hazven't dared look/work it out what the 35 per centr increase is going to make it...

Sonnet Fri 01-Aug-08 12:09:59

Don't have gas only oil - no capping that!!
But smug emoticon to as DH capped our electricity at least 3 months ago and accoring to my Mum and Dad we are Quids in compared to what they are being charged

LilRedWG Fri 01-Aug-08 13:04:35

My understanding is that once you sign up to cap at a certain rate they have to stick by it, even if their prices change before you actually transfer. At least, I hope that is the case....

Tinker Fri 01-Aug-08 16:36:06

I'd have to pay 30% more to cap according to e-on. Why is The Answer ever straightforward?

hopelesshousewife Fri 01-Aug-08 18:14:03

Thanks LilRegWG - hopefully it will come through - we got a £40 box of wine too (if you do it through the site)

Filthymindedvixen, our cap is also a bit more than we pay now, but it won't go up until August 09, so I'm counting on saving in the future. If you want to switch out it's only £10/£20 to opt back out.

bubblerock Fri 01-Aug-08 18:23:43

Be doubly smug if you're changing to Scottish Powers capped rate and go through QUIDCO - £36 cashback on Electric or Gas £72 on Electric & Gas combined grin

This whole thing is making me feel almost good about moving into a house with no central heating other than a coal fired aga can provide.

almost hmm
