Something free and money-saving for the financially challenged...

(...and when I say financially-challenged I include myself...)

I came across an offer for a free energy-saving plug (apparently worth £20) via the London Cycling Campaign this evening.  If you qualify for any of these benefits (or if  you know someone else who does) then have a look...

If you're over 70 or getting any of these benefits you'll qualify...
  • Council tax benefit
  • Housing benefit
  • Income support
  • Income-based job-seekers allowance
  • Income-related employment & support
  • Attendance allowance
  • Disability living allowance
  • War disablement pension
  • Disablement pensions with constant attendance
  • State pension credit
  • Child tax credit (income < £16,040)
  • Working tax credit (income < £16,040)
And via a system that I don't understand this will somehow benefit the London Cycling Campaign if you type CYCLE into the promotion code.

Here's where you go


  1. Wot's an energy saving plug, Marmoset? How on earth does that work? Any ideas? Does it act as a standby without running the 0.002p it costs to light an LED? Sorry, I am too lazy to look it up myself...

  2. Anything that uses electricity is in my opinion magic - so I'm not the best one to give advice, plus the fact that I haven't seen one yet. But there's an explanation here

    It appears to work by switching off those appliances that stay on standby, by using your TV remote, or something like that...
