Offers and deals for you
Online discountsIf you’re thinking about signing up for ScottishPower over the phone instead of online, it could end up costing you more. Some of the utility supplier’s tariffs – usually the cheapest ones – are only available online and even if you can sign up for them over the phone, they’ll almost always cost you more than if you had switched online. The only downside is that to get the online discount, you have to manage your account online. If you’re used to receiving paper bills in the post, this could take some getting used to, but know that you’ll receive exactly the same information online as you would on paper – it will just be in your computer screen instead of in your hand.
So even if you hate shopping online, it’s always worth checking out which tariffs are available on the website, because they could save you some serious cash in the long run.
Dual fuel discountAnother way of saving money with ScottishPower is to get both your gas and electricity from them. The amount you save will depend on where you live, but you’re guaranteed to pay less by having both fuels with ScottishPower, instead of just gas or electric.
Warm Home DiscountIf you struggle to pay your energy bills, you could qualify for a Warm Home Discount of £140 per year up until 2016. Some ScottishPower customers will receive a letter from the Department of Work and Pensions telling them they qualify for the discount and when they can receive their rebate. If you don’t receive a letter, that doesn’t mean you’re not eligible. If you receive the Guarantee Credit element of the Pension Credit or receive Income-Related Employment Support Allowance, Income-Based Job Seeker’s Allowance, Income Support or Universal Credit and are not in work or self-employed, you might still be eligible.
If you think you qualify for the discount, visit the Warm Home Discount page on the ScottishPower website, click on the ‘Apply’ button and fill out the form.
