• Monthly payments change!

    We Joined Pure Planet in November last year. I did my research, it appeared to be a risk but one worth taking. My wife's comments were, you know what you're doing so as long as you think its right... We all know what that means....

    Anyway - Roll on 3 months and what pops up in my inbox, a notification that Pure Planet need to adjust my monthly payments... DOWNWARDS.... I meand DOWNWARDS, that is a first for me. Now we moved from British Gas, who on the day we left sent us a letter cheerfully noting that our payments would need to go up...

    The amount that we are saving in the actual cost of gas and electricity supply is one thing but just from the monthly amount we would be paying to British Gas compared to what we now pay to Pure Planet is saving us over Β£1200 a year...

    So, as long as Pure Planet keeps doing what it's doing then I am one happy chap.

    Good luck and keep us all happy.

    Oh and well done British Gas, for losing yet another customer...

  • Hi knobby
    Glad you're happy but...
    for the purposes of future negotiation and married harmony I'd reduce your Β£1200 a year estimate by quite a lot.
    2 reasons,
    1. It's too good to be true unless you live in a gigantic or badly insulated house even with BG prices there is no way you were paying Β£1200 a year more (is my guess)
    2. You will gain further wife points by revising it upward in the future, for which you need some leeway so don't burn all your powder at once
    (of course your name being what it is the gain in wifely points may not be required...)

    I'd check my meter readings if I were you.

  • HI Woz, The numbers do in fact stack up, it's not about meter readings, it's more about how much British Gas is trying to rip customers off. Had we stayed with BG and accepted its inflation-busting increase because we were about to transfer to "standard" tariff, the yearly saving i mentioned is correct.
