Like many industries, energy companies do not currently offer any loyalty to their customers. Once they have lured you in with a competitive tariff price, they will seek to keep you at a higher priced tariff once your contract has come to an end.
Monitoring and switching your energy service provider can literally save you, or your tenants, hundreds of pounds a year. Look After My Bills does the work for you by switching your energy provider automatically if they can save you £50 or more, when your current contract comes to an end.
The service is free to use and you only need to sign up once. It only takes two minutes to register and you will not need to fill out any more online forms again, or visit any more comparison sites.
You can also sign up at any time. If you are currently tied to a tariff, you will automatically be notified when your current energy contract is coming to an end, along with a notification of your new energy provider and the savings you will make.
Like any other switching service, you will have a 14 day cooling off period where you are able to cancel your new contract, without charge, from the date you were notified of your switch. You will always be in control!
How Do I Sign Up To Look After My Bills?
This is what you will see when you register with Look After My Bills:
The sign up process only takes two minutes. You first need to enter your email address and postcode on the Home page:
Then you just need to enter a few details about your current tariff and energy supplier. If you don’t know how much energy you have used over the past year, you can simply enter an estimate. You can also select whether or not you would like to use renewable energy only.
Look After My Bills will then calculate how much you could save by switching through them. If you are pleased with the savings you are offered, you just need to enter a few more personal details to complete the switch. That’s it! You will not need to register or complete this form ever again.
Most people are aware that they can save money by switching their energy provider each year, but a lot of people don’t keep a record of when their service is due for renewal or they don’t find the time to switch providers. Look After My Bills solves this problem head on, by monitoring those details automatically and keeping their customers informed by email at each step along the way.
How Does Look After My Bills Make Money
Look After My Bills receives a commission from the energy provider once you have switched. They take pride in only using companies with a proven track record and a good customer service. Commissions from energy providers are the same, so they are not driven by companies who pay higher commissions.
Price comparison sites can receive a different amount of commission from each provider, depending on the commission each energy company is willing to offer. This can result in a lack of transparency for the consumer, although some price comparison sites pass part of the commission back to their customers in the form of ‘cash back’.
Look After My Bills can currently switch their customers to over 50 energy companies who have built a good reputation and can offer a competitive price. But it does mean that consumers could possibly find cheaper energy tariffs, from newer companies, who have yet to build a good track record with their customer service.

How Do I Cancel Look After My Bills?
You can cancel your service with Look After My Bills anytime you want. If you decide that you don’t like the supplier you have been switched to, you will have 14 days to cancel the contract free of charge.
