    PlanScan has received kudos from home finance experts like Frugal Confessions, who had this to say:

    And probably my favorite tool of theirs? Is the PlanScan. You literally upload one of your previous bills, and they’ll hand-select the plan that is cheapest for you.

    I filled this out myself and was super impressed with the results.

    After submitting ours, they found a plan that will save us $23.26/month (that’s an approximate annual savings of $279.12!).

    And this from Houston Moms Blog, who said this:

    I was shocked when my PlanScan report arrived in my inbox, just a little over an hour after I uploaded my bill. It turns out, I am currently paying WAY more for electricity than I should be. ElectricityPlans gave me four custom recommendations that could save me up to 41% off my current bill.
