As a Brit, Rob couldn't get over how much people in the US pay for their cell phones. With a decade of experience building comparison sites, 20 years in online marketing, and a passion for consumer fairness, he set up MoneySavingPro in 2015. He's been captain ever since.
Think outside the box. If you've been buying something the same way for many years, there's almost certainly a more efficient way to buy it today.
🙏 It reminds me of meditation, where everything is perfectly aligned and in flow.
PC gaming. When I'm not managing MoneySavingPro, I'll probably be found managing my favorite soccer team on Football Manager.

The old, old Nokia 5190, aka the Nokia brick. That thing was great!
Aside from it being indestructible, it was hugely customizable. You could even change the antenna on it so I changed mine to a multi-light antenna so whenever someone called it was like Christmas lights.
😳 I have the tendency to use it a lot because I somehow manage to do or say embarrassing things ALL the time.
Full-stack development; breaking things, making them worse, then fixing them.

A Nokia 3330
I loved Snake - it kept me entertained for hours! And I still miss the Kick ringtone!
🤦 It just works for so many scenarios …
Amanda is the grammar queen of MoneySavingPro. She has over 20 years of experience as a teacher and is no stranger to the oddities of puncuation and spelling errors. Did someone say oxford comma?
Nokia 3310 - the "brick" was a necessity since I acquired it during my college years
eSIMs are the future of the industry, making it easier than ever to switch to the MVNO of your choice. I've already saved myself hundreds.
🤷 because there are a lot of things I don't know, but I'm always willing to learn

An ancient Sony Ericsson flip phone - with a velvet zebra-striped cover!
Compare everything, always.
If I can't find a comparison site, I make my own one in a spreadsheet. My last one was to buy a coffee machine!
Anna's built brands for startups of all shapes and sizes - from food delivery and parking apps, to real estate and pet food subscription services. At MoneySavingPro, she stays close to our customers and makes sure we're solving their problems, speaking their language, and standing out from the crowd.
I don't even remember the model but it was very oversized, had a chunky antenna, and I carried it around in a plastic ziplock bag for safekeeping.
Don't let a tempting introductory offer inadvertently become an expensive monthly subscription. I set reminders for when an offer is about to expire, so I have the chance to review it instead of being caught out.
Andrew is our designer, with 10 years of experience creating apps and websites for every need. He's in charge of making everything we do at MoneySavingPro clear, simple, and delightful to use.
Nokia 3210 - I still miss playing Snake!
🎉 Because who doesn't like a celebration?
Reading movie plots I never intend to see on Wikipedia. Try it!

A Samsung one with a rubber back in light blue. You could only save 200 contacts, with limited text messages too. I remember I had to delete people to save new numbers. Great times!
It’s either 👍 or 💯 - I'm always thinking positive!
When I find myself spontaneously wanting to buy something random, I 'buy it my head' and then put that 'spent' money into a separate account. I check into that special account twice a year and find that I have a few hundred dollars in there that would have been clutter in my home by this point. Then that's my budget for birthdays and Christmas sorted!
