Meet Rob Lock, a 27-year-old recruiter. He lives in Shrewsbury with his girlfriend and his sausage dog, Ava. Rob saved £863 a year on his household bills with Nous by switching his energy, broadband and mobile contracts. He joined Nous after his employer, Futureheads, offered him membership as an employee benefit.
How did you manage your household bills before joining Nous?
To be honest with you I was probably a little bit lackadaisical. I tended to just do whatever was the easiest thing to get out of the whole rigour of the process of sorting out everything.
What has the impact of the cost of living crisis been for your household?
I noticed that, especially from an energy perspective, things had obviously gone up. It wasn’t as astronomical as some of the figures that you hear bandied about, but things have still shot up. With day-to-day living costs, a food shop or putting fuel in your car, combined with the fact that bills are going up, it all contributes.
What were some of the ways you saved with Nous?
On my broadband I'd actually finished my contract, so I was on a rolling tariff and it had gone up to £71. Nous managed to bring that down to a package that I selected. With my phone contract, it actually transpired that I'd been paying for my watch for 12 months more than I needed to. That’s saved me about £25 a month.
Were you surprised by how much you saved?
It's ridiculous! I was always a little bit blase about it all. The fact of the matter is, just on those two examples, £65 to £70 a month has been saved. That is a crazy amount.
What are you going to do with the money you’ve saved?
I’m going on holiday in a couple of weeks and that’s obviously helped. I'm a big football fan, so it’ll probably go on some tickets. To be honest though it will mostly go on the dog.
