Since 1993 independent price comparison website MoneySupermarket has been offering customers in the United Kingdom the opportunity to compare various products in order to find the best deal. Initially, this was principally for insurance and finance-based products, however, other goods can now also be compared.
It is very easy to use MoneySupermarket. You simply decide on the deal which appeals to you and then buy it via a MoneySupermarket link to the external company’s website. This process is entirely free of charge for the customer. Instead, MoneySupermarket makes their profit by a commission fee which they charge to the external company on successful completion of the deal.
This gives the customer the opportunity to compare a wide range of services from a network of companies. These include key insurance products, such as travel, home, life and car insurance. Financial products such as loans, mortgages, savings accounts and credit cards can also be compared.
Interestingly, other services which are vital to life nowadays such as telecommunications services can also be researched. For example, mobile phones, SIM only deals and business mobile phones can all be compared on the website, in addition to broadband and fibre optic broadband deals.
The services of MoneySupermarket are becoming increasingly more accessible. Not only can you enact your comparisons via the company website, but you can also now use the MoneySupermarket app which is available for download from the Apple App Store and from Google Play.
MoneySupermarket really care about saving their customers money, as reflected by the involvement of money savings expert Paul Lewis in the company. Accordingly various tips, and even articles, on how to save money are published on the company website. Examples of this section, which is updated regularly, includes advice on changing your energy supplier and how to make savings throughout the year. Seasonal issues such as saving money at Christmas are also addressed.
The customer service department can be contacted by telephone on weekdays, during office hours. Alternatively, you can email the team or use the contact forms on the company website.
