SAVE ENOUGH FOR A CASTELLO SOFA
Bonkers.ie, the price comparison site, is brilliant at blasting through all the waffle and spoofery concocted by the gas and electricity companies when it comes to bundles. Rule one: never ever get gas and electricity from the same company. We've compared someone who's spending €250 per month of electricity on the normal ESB rate and €250 per month on gas on the normal Bord Gais rate. Both paid by direct debit. you'd save more than €910 by choosing the cheapest suppliers compared with a €787 saving on the cheapest "bundle" from one supplier. Don't believe the hype! Believe bonkers.ie.
