Free Electricity Allowance & Switching

    Was looking at trying to save my elderly mother some cash on her bills - she never shops around or would know where to start.

    SHe is with EI and I tried looking at her tariffs versus Bonkers - but something is not right. Bonkers is reporting back a huge potential savings - but its also reporting an estimate of her current costs at over double what they actually are...

    SHe is on ValueReward tariff for both Gas and Electricity - which does not exist on bonkers site.

    She also has a Free Electricity Allowance on every bill (is that becuase of her age?). If i was to switch her to say SSE like Bonkers suggests - would i save her money or end up costing her more? Very confusing - no wonder people dont shop around!
