IT'S OFFICIAL: If you’re with a Big Six supplier – even on their best deal – you’re still getting ripped off.

British Gas, Npower, Scottish Power and their fellow major energy suppliers have the bulk of customers in the UK.

ARE YOU MISSING OUT ON A GREAT DEAL?

Yet they’re not offering the best deals on the market.

What’s more – five out of the Big Six have announced massive price hikes for more than 8 million people.

These come into effect in just a matter of weeks.

Family getting ripped off by British Gas

Philippa Copeman and her family had been with British Gas for ten years.

But when it put up its prices, their gas and electricity bills were going to be upwards of £1,600 at their three-bedroom detached house in Surrey.

"I started to get new quotes from British Gas and the electricity price had gone up a ridiculous amount.

"I was on the standard tariff too which didn't help."

Philippa went onto A Spokesman Said and found she could get a far cheaper deal with Ovo Energy.

She saved £350 by switching. How much can you save?
