HOW IT WORKS

 

One Big Switch uses the combined buying power of over a million members around the world to unlock exclusively discounted electric rates, insurance offers and more.

Our Mission is to help our members save on their household bills. Here’s how it works:

 

1 - You join www.onebigswitch.com for free

All you need to join One Big Switch is an email address and a postcode. There’s no cost or obligation to take up any offers. More than 1.2 million households in 4 countries have so far jumped on board to get access to the network’s huge buying power.

 

2 - We negotiate Group Discounts

We are constantly using the combined buying power of our million-plus members to unlock new Group Discounts on electric rates, insurance, loans and more. If you’re a member, you’ll receive new offers to your inbox as soon as we launch them.

 

3 - You decide what’s right for you

It’s up to you whether you take an offer, leave it, or use it to negotiate with your current provider. Hundreds of thousands of households have used One Big Switch Group Discounts to shop around, switch and save.

I was not asked for a start date nor was I given any billing details... How do you know when your plan starts after applying? I gave my SSN then the next screen said "DONE, it's that easy". What's that easy? Where are my account details?

I saw it on the local news with a consumer reporter Amy Davis. When I went to your site, the prices she quoted were not there. Now it ways the promotion is no longer running. That was only a few days ago. Not very nice of you.
