As we enter into Spring, now is a good time to freshen your financial affairs.
Bank Current Accounts. Many of us get little or no reward for using an age old current account. Why not look around for deals? With the new “seven day switch” guarantee, you could find new loyalty rewards.
Service Providers. Bundling your broadband, home phone and TV package could save you money. Savings of as much as £200 could be achieved. Try the internet such as uswitch.com or others.
Energy Bills. According to CAB average energy spend has risen by 55% since 2002. Again use the internet to begin your spring clean. By switching to competitors you may save money.
Insurances. Year by year your insurances just get renewed. By shopping for quotes on travel, motor or home, you could be making large savings. View amongst other sites like GoCompare.com.
Savings. Examine your interest being paid on your savings accounts. You could be pleasantly surprised at what a switch will do. Don’t forget to look at your individual savings accounts (ISA). Top up time?
Finally have you looked at your annual costs for annual accounts, tax planning etc? Why not look around. Savings can be made.
