Martin Lewis has revealed a little known trick that could save you up to £96 per year on your broadband.
With the cost of living soaring, many families are looking for ways to cut down on bills. Now, in a bid to help struggling families, the money saving expert and his team have been putting together advice on how Brits can save money where they can.
Martin has reminded broadband customers that they may be eligible for cheap, long-term social tariffs - which are rates available for eligible households who might be struggling to afford their broadband or phone services.
The MSE team explains: "If you're on a lower income, for example, claiming universal credit, we've a full list of social tariffs which are cheap long-term. Some looking for work are even eligible for six months' free broadband."
Martin quoted an email he had received from a customer who managed to save £96 a year after learning about the social tariff.
The email read: "Martin, thank you for the advice about BT's social tariff – this isn't widely advertised, nor does it come up on comparison sites. Thanks to you and your website, I have switched a friend on to this and he stands to save £96 a year."
To make it clearer for customers, Martin has listed the social tariffs available, and the eligibility requirements for each. You can view them here. It's important to note that these deals usually aren't listed on comparison sites.
The MSE team added: "The standard comparison will generally have cheaper headline prices due to newbies' sign-up incentives. So they usually win for regular switchers.
"Yet if you want to stick with a provider for more than a year or so, then social tariffs are likely to be the cheapest route."
Martin and the team have recently put together a 'cost of living crisis survival guide' to help those struggling. You can view all the tips and advice here.
