Whether you’re a student, young professional or a couple, house sharing can be more expensive than you’d imagine.
Although it’s commonly a money-saving practice to live with other people, it can be more affordable for some than others if you fail to keep track of who’s paying for what, whether it all adds up fair and square, or whether you could be getting a better deal elsewhere.
acasa is a leading bill-splitting mobile app used by house sharers across the country that can save you up to £200 a year on your utility bills. Want to find out how we do it? Just keep reading.
How we do it
When it comes to utilities, you might feel limited to the Big Six providers, or be duped into thinking that they automatically offer the best deals. The alternative of trawling through dozens of potential energy companies to find the best offer that won’t cut out on you halfway through the day might not seem worth the trouble.
At acasa, we match you with best value providers hand-picked by us for their efficient and reliable gas and electricity offered at prices that suit the needs of cash-strapped students or professional sharers. View all the pricing information for our providers of choice here.
We may sound similar, but there’s a very important difference between acasa and bill splitting companies you may have been warned about. Unlike them, we don’t hike your rate to make money. With acasa, the full amount we collect for your bills each month is passed to the supplier; we don’t take a cut off the top, so you benefit from low prices with all the money management capabilities that our app offers.
After all, saving money is about more than just a great rate. It’s also about managing money efficiently. acasa offers users full transparency on their bills, household costs, individual balances and more, so that those miscellaneous payments or the time you covered a spare tenner of someone’s bill because they were underpaid by their boss doesn’t add up to cost you dozens, maybe even hundreds of pounds over the course of a year.
This includes managing the non-utility costs that go into sharing accommodation, such as groceries, household essentials like washing up liquid or toilet roll, joint birthday or Christmas gifts for flatmates and nights out, depending on how close you are with your housemates.
