Seven of Ireland’s energy suppliers have announced price hikes in the last couple of months and it’s not looking too great for many of Ireland’s energy customers, especially in the midst of the winter months - a time traditionally associated with higher energy bills.
But Bord Gáis Energy is offering some comfort with an offer of €175 cashback to households that switch their gas and electricity, or just their electricity to the supplier.
New Bord Gáis Energy electricity customers who sign up to the supplier’s paperless, direct debit, 10% discount plan with level pay will be eligible for the €175 cashback.
To avail of your €175 cashback, customers must register with Bord Gáis Energy online, sign into the rewards section and then select the month to which they want to apply the cashback voucher.
At this rate, the average Irish household will spend about €950 on a year's worth of electricity, which is €21 cheaper than standard rates.
When you add on the €175 cashback, it takes the savings up to around €196.
You can sign up to Bord Gáis Energy’s 10% Discount (Paperless, Direct Debit & Level Pay) deal and get €175 cashback now.
Customers who switch both gas and electricity to Bord Gáis Energy can also avail of the €175 cashback offer and there are several options. The leading offer goes to customers who sign up to the supplier's Dual Fuel 1 Year - Electricity allocation plan. This includes paperless billing, direct debit payment as well as level pay.
