Are One Big Switch offers available to anyone who joins the Club?
We aim to unlock offers that are available to as many of our members as possible.

Absolutely. Over 150,000 people have already taken One Big Switch group discounted energy offers all around the world. 10 or 20 people can’t unlock a group discounted energy offer; they simply do not have enough buying power.

Are One Big Switch offers the cheapest offers around?
Not necessarily. But what you can be sure of is that One Big Switch offers always include an exclusive group discount that is only available to One Big Switch members.
Any “Big Switch” is a bold experiment to see if we can source offers that you can’t get as an individual. Some customers are on legacy deals and special deals that are not available cost-free to the general public. Other providers could also be compelled to compete with One Big Switch offers by offering more competitive offers, which is great. It means consumers win even more. One Big Switch campaigns are about driving competition.
Are One Big Switch offers the right products for me?
Not necessarily. You should always consider the appropriateness of our offers for your personal situation, and if needed, shop around. People who join One Big Switch can switch to our negotiated offer, use the offer to shop around, or even negotiate with their current provider.

Will One Big Switch swamp me with emails?
Nope. We know our members are busy; we won’t waste your time with daily emails. When we can help you cut the cost of your household bills we will be in touch. When we can’t, we won’t. Also, it’s easy to unsubscribe.
Does it cost anything to take part in the One Big Switch club?
It costs nothing to be part of One Big Switch. It is free to join, and free to take part.
So how does One Big Switch pay its bills?
We make money when you save money. One Big Switch is a for-profit-with-purpose enterprise that earns a fee from the businesses that earn customers through our club. Those commissions help to fund our future campaigns. Providers pay these fees, not our members.
What should I do after joining or switching?
Tell your family and friends about your savvy move. The more people who join the club, the greater the discounts could be.
Do I need an email address?
To join One Big Switch you will need to register with an email address & zip code. But by simply typing your zip code into our website, you can determine whether any of our offers are available in your location at any given time.
