Reports are reaching the NewsBiscuit newsdesk of a USwitch user who has saved money.
Pensioner Fred Hartley of Eastbourne is said to have entered his electricity use details accurately on the USwitch website and was told that he'd save £182 pounds a year if he switched to Scottish Power.
To save the time and effort of going through with the switch, Mr Hartley instead cleared his web browser cookies and entered the same fuel use details on the USwitch website, this time saying that he was already a Scottish Power customer spending £122 per annum less, and was told that he'd save a further £86 if he switched to E-ON.
Still reluctant to call an energy supply company customer helpline, Mr Hartley then cleared his cookies again, entered the new information, and was redirected to his current supplier, EDF Energy, at a further saving of £18 per annum.
A delighted Mr Hartley said that the savings were "a dream come true" and that they would enable him to settle all his EDF Energy debt collection fees within a few years and, one day, perhaps pay for his dream holiday, which is a cruise on the boating lake on Hastings seafront.
Neither USwitch nor EDF Energy were available for comment.
