MoneySavingExpert.com celebrated its 10th birthday on Friday. We received many kind tributes to the work we’ve done, but I was especially delighted to read this open letter from StepChange (CCCS as it used to be known).
Congratulations on MoneySavingExpert.com’s 10th birthday!
It’s great to hear that the site, a British institution, has been running for a whole decade now. And in the same year that StepChange Debt Charity celebrates its 20th anniversary!
You’ve been at the vanguard of helping Britons save money on their credit, utilities, insurance and travel, among others. You’ve also been instrumental in a number of very important campaigns, most recently with reclaiming payment protection insurance (PPI) for free and getting financial education on the school curriculum.
But most importantly for StepChange Debt Charity, you’ve provided great help to many people in debt by signposting them to us to get the help they need for free. We’ve worked out that over the last 10 years MoneySavingExpert.com has referred over 25,000 people, giving us the opportunity to recover their situations and transform their futures. We’re proud to have helped you and your visitors, and long may it continue.
Here’s to the next 10 years and all of the future subjects and campaigns MoneySavingExpert.com will take the lead on. We’ll use some of the discount vouchers on the website and buy some (cheap) bubbly to help celebrate!
