Perkbox launches ‘Big Perkbox Energy Switch’ campaign to help combat rising UK energy prices
Perkbox partners with iChoosr to fight against rising household energy prices, harnessing the unique collecting buying power of its community.
LONDON, UK 23rd January, 2018 – Perkbox, UK’s fastest growing employee benefits platform, has partnered with iChoosr, the collective switching expert to launch a new collective energy switch campaign in an attempt to offer further value for money to users at a time when cost of living is at an all time high and consumers are often out of pocket due to extortionate energy bills.
The campaign, called the ‘Big Perkbox Energy Switch’, provides all Perkbox customers and umbrella companies with the chance to harness the collective buying power of the Perkbox community, securing fantastic energy tariffs for everyone whilst taking the stress and confusion out of changing providers in what is often a confusing and complex energy market.
Ofgem figures show that 57% of households - representing around 13 million people - are on a standard variable rate tariff. If consumers are not in a fixed contract, they are likely to be on their suppliers’ standard variable tariff. These are often the most expensive. This campaign is part of Perkbox’s continued effort to integrate into the day-to-day lives of its users, moving beyond the usual discounts and benefits and helping them save on the necessity services where people financially suffer the most.
To participate, all users need to do is redeem the benefit on the Perkbox platform before the 12th of February. They will then be asked for minimal information about their energy consumption and the rest is handled by iChoosr.
Registration is free, without obligation and takes less than five minutes.
George Frost, iChoosr UK Country Manager comments:
“Collective switching works at its best when trusted brands appeal to their audiences so we are excited to see how the Perkbox community responds. It provides a safe and easy route for people who would not otherwise switch, enabling them to make an informed decision.”
Chieu Cao, CMO and Co-founder at Perkbox comments:
“Our objective here at Perkbox is to provide not only luxury perks to our users, but to also help them and their families with their everyday needs. No one can deny that the cost of living in the UK is expensive. But looking at utility bills, there can be a huge difference depending on which provider you go with.
“Over the last couple of years, we’ve built up a fantastic community of members. Now, we are looking to harness the power of the group to bring our users something they otherwise wouldn’t have access to. Ultimately, this is another powerful way to attract the best people and create greater loyalty, leading to high-performance and improved retention”.
