As winter approaches and the nights start to draw in, concerns around managing energy bills invariably start to arise as we spend more time indoors with the lights on and the heating cranked up.
What’s more, with the Government announcing an increase in the carbon tax in the recent budget, people will feel the pinch in their pockets more than ever.
As a result, it's never been more important to ensure you’re getting the very best deal for your energy.
Enter Bord Gáis Energy with its new dual fuel deal offering super savings on your gas and electricity just in time for the colder months!
For a limited time Bord Gáis Energy (BGE) is offering dual fuel customers a 25% discount off its standard unit rate of electricity as well as a 24% discount off its standard gas rate.
The discounts mean you’ll pay just 15.75 cent per kWh for your electricity and 4.57 cent for your gas.
15.75 cent per kWh
€170.90 standing charge
4.572 cent per kWh
€97.20 standing charge
The whopping discounts last for 12 months after which time you can switch to another supplier or stay with BGE and revert to its standard rates.
To get this plan you must also sign up for direct debit and agree to online, paperless billing, but that’s pretty much standard these days.
Customers of BGE also get access to the Bord Gáis Energy Rewards Club, which is a special online club that gives customers access to rewards such as pre-sale tickets, discount tickets, flash sale tickets and last chance tickets for the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.
Also, BGE has a great partnership with Tesco which could help save you even more.
When you register your Tesco Clubcard, you’ll receive Clubcard points every time you pay your energy bill. For every €2 you pay off your bill, you’ll receive one Clubcard point.
If you're a Tesco customer you can also use your Clubcard vouchers to double the savings off your gas and electricity. So a €2.50 Tesco Clubcard voucher becomes €5 off your next energy bill and a €5.00 voucher becomes €10 off your bill. Not bad!
The offer is available to both new customers as well as EXISTING customers.
If you just get your gas or electricity from BGE at present you can sign up to this new dual fuel offer immediately. If you're already a dual fuel customer, you must wait until your existing contract has come to an end before signing up to this deal though.
This new deal is available exclusively through bonkers.ie. You can sign up online or call us on 01 256 0540 and our Dublin-based customer care team can take your order.
Although this is a pretty super deal, remember that if you are thinking of switching, be sure to compare all deals from all suppliers before you make any decisions to make sure you’re getting the very best deal for your own personal consumption habits.
