Brits told to pile on the pounds in 2009

Price comparison site Moneysupermarket.com has said that Brits should pile on the pounds in 2009 by switching their financial services suppliers.

Research by the website found that people in the UK could save up to £2,500 in the next year if they search around for the best deals available on financial products.

Remortgaging could save homeowners over £1,000 per year on a £150,000 mortgage, shopping around for a £10,000 loan can save up to £150 per year, whilst switching credit cards to take advantage of 0% introductory offers saves over £300 per year on a credit balance of £2,000.

Big savings are also possible on home and car insurance, utilities, and TV, phone and internet bills.

Moneysupermarket.com site editor Clare Francis said a New Year’s resolution to look for the best deals available could ‘easily’ lead to consumers having an extra £2,500 to spend by next Christmas.

Research by Alliance & Leicester recently found that spending less and saving more are two of the most popular New Year’s resolutions for 2009.
