Energy tariffs finishing soon: switch now!

A stonking 14 fixed energy tariffs are up at the end of May from suppliers including British Gas, Scottish Power, Npower, M&S Energy, First Utility and Sainsbury's Energy.

If you're on one of those tariffs, it's a good idea to get switching or you could end up spending as much as £150 a year more on your energy deal.

That's because when your deal ends, you'll be placed on your provider's standard tariff and they're generally more expensive.
