Bargain of the month

Hubby & I have been umming about changing our gas & electricity supplier for months, and when we saw that uSwitch were offering free wine when you use them to change supplier, we finally did it.

We changed our supplier, and uSwitch estimates we should save £200 a year! Yippee

And, our free wine arrived today! 6 bottles of wine for free (just the £4.99 P&P) from Naked Wines. The RRP is £44.99. Delivery was great too as you can specify the date (but not time) when ordering. We chose today (obviously, lol), and it arrived just after midday.


So, a great saving of £200 plus £44.99 (minus the P&P). Cheaper gas & electricity supplier AND almost-free wine! What a fabulous Friday.

Villebois Petit Villebois, Sauvignon Blanc, 2012
OMG, Merlot, Cabernet & Syrah, 2011
Arabella, Shiraz, 2012
Small and Small, Sauvignon Blanc, 2012
Boy Meets Girl, Shiraz Cabernet, 2012

They all look scrummy, and now it's a question how and when to enjoy them thoroughly! I'm tempted to host a fun wine tasting evening with all my mummy friends.....we need babysitters & taxis, stat! Heehee

NB I don't think uSwitch still have the free wine offer, but keep an eye open for their future offers & incentives
Please drink responsibly

  4. Now that's what I call a win win situation. Wow...you would not get something like that here. No incentives for switching companies and actually you are not able to. Only certain utilities service certain areas. It's a monopoly.

  8. We don't have the option of choosing a utility company. Saving money and having a little fun doing so is a great place to be in. ;)

  10. We don't have the option of choosing our electric company, but we do have the option of choosing our gas company. Around here the only thing they offer is a penny or two price difference.

  14. What a great incentive to switch. I remember the cable company offering a free iPod and free Kindle Fires in order to get us to switch. Now if they offer an iPad or even the iPad mini I might be tempted. Enjoy your wine!

  20. Wow, I've never heard of an electric/gas supplier offering this kind of incentive to switch! LOL. That's a really good idea about hosting a wine tasting with your mom friends!

  21. I do not drink wine but wow what an offer!!! I never heard of a place doing that especially for electric/gas. Enjoy your wine!
