    It's the thought that counts. My parents are getting a 'stealth' payment to their energy bills, my other half will get another charm for her Pandora bracelet, the dogs will get my share of the Brussels Sprouts and that's everyone covered. Bit of cheese and some home pickled onions on Christmas Day and some carols on t'wireless, out in me shed, and that's me sorted.

    Don't shoot me, I'm only the piano player. I DON'T work for or on behalf of EON.Next, but am willing to try and help if I can. ​​​​​​​Not on mains gas, mobile network or mains drainage. House heated almost entirely by baby dragons.

    it never ceases to amaze me that people can think that paying bills is optional. They don’t expect to leave a shop or the fuel station without paying, but think nothing about not paying for stuff where they, the customer, is remote from the other party. As I posted above the costs of such action falls upon the rest of society. So I fully support the use of prepayment metering where customers have demonstrated unwillingness to pay their bills, but equally think people who are credit worthy should be allowed to have credit meters, something E.On Next hasn’t permitted in the past - is the policy still the same now?
    Current Eon Next and EDF customer, ex Zog and Symbio. Don't think dual fuel saves money and don't like smart meters. Chronologically Gifted. If I offend let me know by private message, but I’ll continue to express my opinions nonetheless.

    @meldrewreborn There is definitely movement with it as we have a new credit checking process. They need to train all the staff on it first and once that is done, we will be able to credit those who have requested a PP to CR meter exchange. 🙌
