            EDF Blue + Price Promise

             

            Good price Yes
            Fixed price Yes
            Reliable Supplier Yes
            Full discount immediately Yes
            Dual fuel or single electric Yes
            Other benefits Yes no get out penalty

            I can’t remember the last time I put so many yes’s against a tariff.

            The Blue + Price Promise does tick all the right boxes. The fact that this deal is showing up as one of the cheapest available, makes it very attractive. You would normally pay a higher price for a fixed price tariff.

             

            It is very unusual to find a fixed price with no get out penalty. I would say that EDF are bidding hard for your business.


             

            The pro’s:

            1. Fixed price (no increase until end of tariff term)

            2. No get out penalty

            3. Amongst the cheapest on comparison sites

            4. Available to all new customers (except pre-pay)

            The con’s:

            1. None that I can see

            Important

            All information was correct at the time of posting.

            This tariff is suitable for just about everyone, but make sure you are not on a contract where you may have to pay a get out penalty.

            Martins’ verdict:

            On very rare occasions, a really great fixed price energy deals comes on the market. Sadly, they are not around for very long. As far as fixed price deals go, this is probably the fairest which has been made available. With no get out penalty, and the promise to inform you if someone else offers a deal which is £1 per week cheaper, they will tell you.

             

             

            At the end of the tariff, customers will be automatically placed on EDF’s Standard (Variable) tariff, they will be notified 30 working days in advance and given the opportunity to sign-up to another tariff of their choice

                  Ps’ The Blue + Price Promise Tariff is available to existing customers, but the offer of the free amazon gift certificate is only available to customers who are switching from another supplier

                Hi Andre
                Thanks for your question.
                A fixed price does not mean your monthly direct debit is fixed, it means the price you pay per KWH for your gas and electricity is fixed. If you consume more energy than estimated, you will have to pay for the extra energy.

              i am currently with edf on a fixed price tariff until march 2014.
              if i switched i would save £43 per annum.
              this looks good but am i better staying on my tariff as it is fixed for 6 months longer than blue plus or am i missing something?

              1. Martin Ramsey Post author

                Thanks for your sensible question Graham.
                Stay as you are. Prices will be increasing before any of these tariffs come to an end. The 6 months would soon swallow up any savings you make.

              Annoyed that EDF refuse to give me a quote over the phone today.

              Apparently they have received a large number of customer complaints regarding the time it takes them to answer the calls.

              So now I cannot get a quote from a human being, instead I am directed via their website.
