Article preview: How much is loyalty to various product providers costing you each year? The so-called loyalty penalty has been in the news a lot this year, following a ‘super complaint’ by Citizens Advice claiming significant amounts are lost to consumers staying loyal to cash savings, mortgages, household insurance, mobile phone contracts and broadband providers. It’s an important issue because vulnerable consumers, including the elderly and those on a low income, are more exposed to the loyalty penalty. Responding to the earlier super complaint, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has now announced a package of measures designed to deal with the loyalty penalty.
