Bulb 💡


#1

I am thinking of making the move from Npower to Bulb. I know they are in the same office building as Freetrade and I have seen very good things about them online. Would anyone recommend them?


#2

Yes. Easy switchover, easy app, good prices, statement every month, always remind you in advance of payment being taken. I suppose you don’t really know until something has gone wrong, but nothing has in my case.


#3

My only concern is the recent collapse of a number of other energy providers. Bulb has some very generous introductory offers - including a £50 referral payment, and will pay exit fees up to £120!

I’ve been with them just over a year, fairly happy with them, although at first they told me my house didn’t exist as it wasn’t on their database :joy: I have had several price increases though since I joined but at least they don’t tie you to a contract and you can take pride in knowing your energy is from 100% renewable sources. I also was grateful for the referral bonus which paid for a couple of months bills. Their app is also nice and easy to use, useful little things like letting you use the flash in app to take a meter reading are a nice touch, UI is also :+1:

If you’d like a referral code, I’d be happy to give you mine (disclosure - we both get £50 credit).

Great overview, thank you Tommy.

Do you think their prices have remained competitive despite the price increase? They are offering to reduce my bill by 1/3 which seems very good!

In last 3 energy providers I was with 2 went into administration.
Moving to Bulb next so beware :wink:

I was with them for a year. No issues. I have just jumped ship as I found a 2 yr fixed deal that was actually cheaper. That said it is with a company I hadn’t heard of so we’ll see how it pans out…

I think they’re fantastic, I switched over to them last year and they’re cheap, their communication is excellent, and it’s 100% renewable - can’t complain!


#9

I’m going to give them a try - anyone fancy sending me their referral code?

Just to clarify, you get £50 and I get £50 into our bulb account upon the switch completing

I recently switched to Bulb as well. Ive been with them for few months now and I can def say it was a great decision :v: Easy to use service, pleasing to interact with them and they also have a solid customer support service. Too bad you already got an invitation code lol!
Here in case someone else needs it :smile:
