With the truly exceptional circumstances from the spread of Covid-19, it's a time where money can be tight for some, or it's just best to stay cautious for others. Every penny counts and the last thing you need is being overcharged by £20 on your energy bill, or by £15 on your outdated car insurance. You may even have a few loans (and credits), you could consolidate to lower your monthly payments.

While social distancing, it's the opportunity to check and avoid any nasty surprises. Luckily, there’s a free way to do that: Plum.

Recommended by Financial Times, BBC, and Money Saving Expert and with over 650,000 users in the UK, Plum is a money assistant that helps in many ways with your money, with the goal to make anyone better off.

Here's how it works:

1) You link Plum to your bank account so it can analyse any recurring spendings (works with all major UK banks).

2) It then calculates where you're likely losing money on your bills. Tap the "Lost Money" tab to see where you could save.

3) Find out how much you would save for the same deal between providers.

4) Switch and DONE! It usually takes 2 minutes to save an average of £179 a year, depending on your type of bills.

And reap the rewards down the line!
