We all know the Big Six are rip-off merchants. It’s been obvious for decades. But last week three of them did something that took our breath away for its utter brazenness. A new low for the Big Six.

Imagine you’re with a Big Six supplier. You hear that they have now got the cheapest deal on the market. It’s going to save you £300 a year. Great news you think. So you jump on a price comparison website to take the deal. But for some reason you can’t find it… So you go on your company’s own website. But you can’t find it there either…

Rather confused you take time out of your day to pick up the phone and call your supplier. Not something you like to do unless your really really have to.

The nice Big Six customer services lady then tells you that you can’t take the deal. But why you ask? Because it’s not available for existing customers. But you’ve been with them all your life. A loyal customer. Why can’t you get the deal you ask? She doesn’t know. All she can tell you is that you are banned from taking it. BANNED from saving £300.

Congratulations to Big Six rip-off merchants SSE, E.ON and EDF for carrying out this truly depressing manoeuvre.

The newspapers have picked up on it and also our angry response. To read more about it click here:
