Martin Lewis shares £1,000 email address tip on ITV This Morning as he switches broadband

Martin Lewis has given advice to anyone with a certain type of email address that could save them up to £1,000.

The cash-saving guru was introduced by hosts Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle to a caller named Pauline.

Pauline described how she wanted to switch from Virgin Media to Vodafone as her broadband provider.

However, she was warned that Virgin would close their email accounts after the move.

Martin first confirmed Virgin would give Pauline 90 days after termination before closing her accounts.

“Some providers let you keep it, some don’t. This is the classic reason for not setting up your own email address with your provider. You’re going to have this problem forever,” Lewis warned.

“You’ll always have a hard time moving, so here’s my tip. Decide today to set up a Gmail account, for example.

“Tell everyone you know to email you through Gmail. Auto-forward your current email address to Gmail to get it sent to your new email address, and you should always reply from there.

“Do that for a couple of months until you’re pretty sure about everything and then leave Virgin. That gives you an extra 90 days, and you need to verify that. After that you have the flexibility to move.”

According to Martin Lewis, switching broadband providers can save up to £1,000

Of switching providers, Mr Lewis said: “It can easily save you up to £2-300 a year. After a few years you could easily be making up to £1,000 by going to the cheapest provider every time.

“You need to break this habit of allowing them to lock you up by keeping your email. It will be tedious to do this, but I suggest you take the time.”
