I fell out with N Power a while ago, they are just a bit rubbish. Remember years ago when they used to plug themselves as being the energy provider who would send you just one bill for both electric & gas and therefore save you money? Yeah? Well, it was a lie. At no point in the 8 - 9 years I was with them did they ever set this method of payment up. When I quizzed them they simply said "It's not available". Add onto that the small things like a total failure to spell my name right, change my name on the bills once I got married, inability to answer straight forward questions like "how much should I be paying you".... Well. As I said, I'd had enough.
I don't pretend to believe that any other providers would be any better, but I fancied a change and British Gas gave me a call on a day when I was particularly hacked off with N Power. So I switched.
Today I got a cheque from N Power for over £270 is money I had OVERPAID them! Whoo hoo! (I always thought my payments were too high, and now I know it).
This money will buy pretty much everything we need to get for Squiggle: the mattresses for the cots & basket, a bouncing chair, bulk buy of nappy liners, a few clothes (if s/he's a girl!) and "coming home from hospital" out fit!
It's a good day!
