I’ve been with bulb for a year now and they have been the best so far. I recently received an email from them saying they have credited £10 to my account because I had waited on the phone for 11 minutes to speak to someone 3 weeks earlier. This is how companies should behave, I thought. They will pay any exit fees when you leave your old supplier. They have consistently been the cheapest for me for the last year. You get monthly email reminders about your direct debit due. If your account is in credit by more than your monthly direct debit you can request a refund. They offer the warm home discount. They also operate a referral system where you and the one refer can get £50 each added to your account when you sign up. Because I’ve been with them a year if you sign up using the following link by 16th Jan 2019 they will credit your account with £100. https://join.bulb.co.uk/?referral=andrew5318

If you want to read a review of Bulb or Octopus (or quite a few other small suppliers!) before switching, then there’s a pretty comprehensive review here: https://www.energy-review.co.uk/bulb-energy-review/
How does this bulb thing work then? I got quoted £93 / month - is this a fixed rated or will it go up and down based on what I use?
As with all energy quotes it’s an estimate based on what data you entered, wether it the actual usage per year or the estimate agree to for the quote.
Bulb use a variable tariff that everyone is on they currently do not offer a fixed rate tariff (as far as I know).
It can be higher or lower depending on how much energy you actually use
