energy savings guarantee


Not switched your energy in a year?

We guarantee you can save £100* or we'll pay you the difference


See below for T&Cs

When you switch gas and electricity provider through MoneySuperMarket, we’re confident you’ll make hefty savings on your annual bills.

That’s because 70% of households are on expensive standard variable rate tariffs. These cost much more than low-cost fixed-rate deals that lock in low prices for 12 months or longer.

If you haven’t switched your energy in the last 12 months, we’re so confident you can save at least £100 that if the biggest saving available to you is less than £100, we’ll pay you the difference once you’ve switched.*

* The Savings Guarantee terms & conditions


1.The Savings Guarantee, described in paragraph 2, is promoted by MoneySuperMarket.com Limited (the “Promoter”), whose registered office is at MoneySuperMarket House, St. David's Park, Ewloe, Chester, CH5 3UZ, and is subject to the following terms and conditions.

Savings Guarantee
Subject to these terms and conditions the Promotor will issue a top up sum equal to the difference between a customer’s estimated energy saving and a maximum of £100 (“Savings Guarantee”). The top up sum will be determined by the Promotor by using the amount a customer is estimated to save when their annual usage figure for their existing tariff is compared with the cheapest new tariff they can switch to through www.moneysupermarket.com.

Successful Switch
A successful switch takes place once the receiving energy supplier has confirmed that a switch initiated by a customer directly through www.moneysupermarket.com or its contact centre (and not through any other method including but not limited to the MSMGo mobile application) has resulted in that customer’s change of energy supply or tariff and the 14 day cooling off period has expired (“Successful Switch”).
