Onedox has been featured today in The Mrs Crunch section of The Sun newspaper, as Website of the Week! The Mrs Crunch section provides fresh ideas each week to help readers save money.
The article reads:
New money-saving website onedox.com has made it quick and easy to claw back some much-needed cash.
The free-to-use service collects and displays all your household bills – such as internet, landline and mobile – in a single account, then automatically notifies you whenever you can get a better deal and even helps you switch.
The site was set up by David Sheridan, left, after he realised his Mum could save more than £400 a year by switching providers.
Experts estimate that the UK’s 27 million households lose a collective £2 billion per year by not seeking out what the best offers are on their bills.
David said: “Household bills collectively represent our biggest outgoings, however as consumers we waste billions on them by not having the correct information readily at our disposal.
Onedox’s unique service is designed to give total transparency over household bills and make it easy for consumers to claim the savings they are entitled to.”
Here are David’s money saving tips from the article:
- Always change energy tariff or provider as soon as your tariff comes to an end, otherwise you may automatically be moved on to a much more expensive tariff. On average, UK families pay an extra £200 a year in energy bills by not changing tariff at the right time.
- To ensure value for money on any household mobile phone contracts, move to a SIM-only deal as soon as a minimum contract period ends (if you don’t need a new mobile phone). If you don’t move to a SIM-only deal or get a new mobile phone, you’re likely to be paying around twice as much as you should, costing hundreds of pounds a year in needless bills.
- Pay all of your household bills by direct debit and opt to receive statements and bills online where possible. Most household suppliers charge more to customers when they don’t have direct debits set up or when they receive paper-based communications. This can run into hundreds of pounds a year in avoidable costs.
