Wow, it’s been a long time since I wrote a full blog post about Bulb energy when we switched to them in May 2018! We’ll have been with them for two years in May and I have been meaning to write an update about how we feel about the service so here it is. I also have a £50 Bulb promo code which will give you a whopping £50 off your first Bulb energy bill if you decide to switch too. You’ll then be able to use your own Bulb referral code to share with your friends and family to give you both £50 off your bills if they sign up! It’s one of the most generous refer-a-friend schemes in the UK that I know of.
To get £50 off your first energy bill simply click my Bulb referral link here: https://bulb.co.uk/refer/benjamins1007
It’s in my husband’s name if you are wondering who on Earth Ben is!
Save money on your energy bills with Bulb
You don’t have to sign up, but it’s worth taking a few moments to get a quote from Bulb to see if you can save money on your energy bills.
That’s exactly what we did back in 2018 and we were able to save £264 per year compared to our British Gas tariff we were previously on. Plus we got £50 off our first bill. Aaaand they use 100% renewable electricity which we really wanted to switch to.
It was also the cheapest tariff for our address and usage at the time. We had checked a few comparison sites before going to Bulb and they always came up the cheapest.

It’s not all about the money
It’s not always about money though, as I would never ever go with Npower, even if they were the cheapest energy on the planet! My mum had a terrible experience with Npower. One which I got involved with to try and get some sense from them. They’d messed up one of my mum’s bills and were trying to get her to pay hundreds more than was due.
Rather than respond to any of her letters or make a note of her calls, they continued with court action, sent bailiffs around and kept ignoring her attempts to sort the issue out.
After a lot of unnecessary stress, it was finally revealed they had made an error and got her bill wrong. There was even something in the media about it and also how they were fined or something for having the worst customer service ever.
It makes me wonder how many people just paid the bill, especially with bailiffs coming around! But my mum knew what she owed and that something had gone really wrong with her bills.
Anyway, I would never go with Npower because of this awful experience and so I do take customer service into account too.
Bulb have amazing customer service
You probably knew that was coming! Bulb have really good customer service. I’ve mostly contacted them via Twitter when we’ve needed something and they are so quick to respond.
They are also very efficient at sorting things out and friendly too.
I have been signed up to Look After My Bills too so I can keep an eye on whether Bulb is the cheapest supplier for us.
In the whole one year and 9 months we have been with Bulb, they have only found one company that could save us more than £50. They were going to switch us, but the other company have dreadful reviews and terrible customer service so I cancelled the switch and decided to stick with Bulb!
We are really happy with Bulb and we are sticking with them for the foreseeable future.
Manage energy easily with the Bulb app
The app is really easy to use too. We upload our meter readings every month to the app. You can take a photo or enter manually. Otherwise you can get an estimated bill.
You can share your refer-a-friend link directly from the app.
It’s also possible to chance your monthly payments from the app if you need to. It’s all so flexible and easy to manage!
Bulb discount code £50 off
We’ll be sticking with Bulb and we’re really happy with their service having been a customer for almost two years.
