Getting me is also a bit of a life hack too. It's an energy service in an app that lets you manage everything to do with your gas and electricity, from splitting the bills between your housemates so everyone knows who owes you what, to getting a prediction of your next bill. And if you sign up now before Feb 28, you'll get up to £70 in retail vouchers.
