Free electricity for Smart Meter Users Every Saturday or Sunday from 9am–5pm British Gas

£0.00 @ British Gas
I had my meters changed over to smart meters recently and the British Gas engineer mentioned something about calling BG to get a free day of electricity. I thought he meant it was a one off so I left

I think you guys are missing what the OP is saying.

although I agree that the smart meters aren't really free as the suppliers are just adding the cost to the consumer bill, what the OP is actually telling us is about an promotion that British gas are doing where you can select either a Saturday or Sunday and have free electricity for that day.

but really like another poster has said, British gas are not the cheapest supplier in the world and so you would probably be better off going on a comparison site and switching supplier as you would save more money than a free days electricity overall.
They are technically "free' but the energy consumer is footing the bill for this £15 billion project.

The energy companies stand to save in excess of £6 billion without actually spending a dime on the project.

I'll hang fire until I'm forced to have one installed
We can install these for you free of charge what bull there not free at all you are msleading people
No offence, but you'd be far better off spending 10-20 minutes switching over to a better deal than taking extra effort every week to make more use of electricity on the 'free day'.

Haven't even received the email yet but all rewards are now gone! Seems rather an unfair way of distributing the offer if only some are receiving the email. Is there supposed to be an offer every month? I've only ever received three and one of those they pulled due to problems. Last one I got was for a free canvas print in December.

A bit of a sweeping statement.

Clearly you're not au fait with all of the BG products and tariffs.
I moved British gas as it's been the cheapest tariff - money saving expert cheap energy deals fix

Since the switch I've had cheaper bills, a free photo box canvass and now 1000 points =£5. British gas are only good if you on a special tariff. Loving the freebies. I saw the email as soon as it came in, shocking how they went in 30 mins! Lots of frustrated customers, that don't get it!

Is it only me who thinks they may want to charge £220 cancellation fee for cancelling in month one?
Very tempted
This looks like a great deal to me. Cheapest I can find. There was a post a while back about being a BG home care customer and calling them out for faulty thermostat. But that seemed like more hassle than this and not guaranteed. Think I might do this. Thanks OP

I read and re-read the terms, it's true
Apologies for the repost MrJinxy - It has changed since your post though, as now open to any British Gas energy customer too! - I confirmed that I could cancel with the sales adviser on the phone, and she said most definitely would get to keep the system, just not the "Hive Live" benefits, which to be honest, I wouldn't really need. You can still control remotely without the "Hive Live" offering!

I might sign up today then, this post shouldn't be cold

These offers are related to to your nectar card being linked to your account, rather than points, every so often they send you rewards to claim a gift, a bottle of wine, a canvas, a box of chocolates, a free pizza kids meal, were all offers last year

That doesn't seem to be the case for me - I don't have a nectar card but I've had, and used, this offer (and another photobox offer in the past too)
I just managed to order one- I only just got the email this morning.

Says I've already used it when I haven't.
​As I said above, the link at the start of the thread is account-specific so the offer is only available to those who receive a direct email (unless you pinch your mum's, of course, lol).
No I'm a British gas customer and used my own email address. Still said I'd already used it.


​As I said, read the url !

It doesn't matter which email address you use, the important bit is the link. In fact, you don't even have to enter an email address (read what it says). Has anyone successfully used the link on this thread? If you click on "GET DEAL" above you should see that the url contains a customer-specific id number.

I signed up for everything in October 2016 online. Some weeks later I emailed them to ask about the hive light kit (and additional nectar points i thought were also on offer). They asked me to send them proof (email or post) to show the offer. I don't have any proof. I sent back a response explaining that. Heard nothing for two weeks. Sent another email asking for the matter to be escalated to a manager. Received an email back saying that I would get a response in two weeks. Then two weeks later received a letter stating that it was being dealt with as a formal complaint.
So I am still awaiting a response.
Does anyone know where this offer was listed. Was it actually on their website or was it on another site like moneysavingexpert or money supermarket for example?

I signed up on the website for Homecare Three (never had boiler cover but decided it was probably time!) when this free Hive Hub & Bulbs offer was on... it was 100% on the website and was the motivator for me to actually sign up however going through paperwork I've received so far and my welcome email there is zero mention of it - concerned I'm going to get screwed somehow.

They've also pulled any references off the website so I can't find any way of establishing how long I have to wait to receive the Hive products. Anyone signed up and received theirs yet?


​Hi . I signed up at the time of offer. rang BG today to arrange the annual service. no mention of having to wait 8 mths for service. in terms of Hive Active light offer. I like you concerned that removed if website and no mention in paperwork . Mentioned whilst booking service and advised that offer was showing on account and confirmed sent within 28 days of setting account up.

At least Corgi are regulated, being insurance backed.
I was totally ripped off by 247 Home Rescue (avoid like the plague) and couldn't get anywhere with complaints when they didn't provide anything! Luckily, I claimed back some money from my bank!
BG are fairly expensive, but I use them for landlord cover now. They can be reliable, but I suppose they too will have their 'off days'.
What happened with 247 home rescue?
Ive signed up to 247 recently and not had any issues so far, not called them up as of yet. They did say that they service boilers once youve been a customer for 8 months.
Also 247 offer monthly rolling contracts too.
Basically, they are unregulated and IMHO, cowboys.
Hope it works out for you, but many, many bad reviews and many complaints to Trading Standards, who are investigating.
Stick to those that are insurance backed and regulated. There is a reason, I suppose, why they aren't insurance backed!
Ive been with them a month now and im on a rolling contract according to my welcome letter.
So does that mean i can cancel?
Previously ive read they try and charge £120 if you try and cancel?

I'm not too sure, the rolling contract must be something new. Originally it was a set amount per month for one year with the option to take out a further year for the same price. But, they increased the monthly fee by £3 and never informed customers. The increase should have triggered a release, so presumably the reason for no notification letters. They wouldn't refund when requested and the only viable way was to use the Direct Debit Guarantee and do a charge-back.
A rolling contract may still need some sort of notice. Obtain professional advice.
I don't get the waiting for eight months for a service though.

You may get some help and guidance here - http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5224329



I took my cover through uswitch in November.

Back then it was a rolling contract. My welcome letter from 247 says 30 day rolling contract.
"We dont need contracts to keep a customer, were that good"

Ive printed it and kept a copy! I called up today to cancel too and they said yep fine i can cancel after my next direct debit. Was told to stop the DD after next payment.

My concern is they might try and take payment after ive cancelled etc or affect my credit rating. But my letter clearly says rolling contract so i have proof in case it comes to that.

Take the hive! £89 for a service they should be on rogue traders!!
Agree, just because the are a reputable company they seem to be able to charge over the top prices, when I see what customers pay for work I'm surprised anyone uses them.
​out of interest, what is a fair price for a boiler service? in Scotland I paid £59 for my yearly one to maintain warranty but found that very expensive for 20 minutes worth of work...
i pay £42 from a local firm in arbroath that is very good and has been on the go 30 yrs or so.


​thanks, should have mentioned Edinburgh, premium I guess... despite not living in a posh part
BG is the cheapest tariff if done through MSE collective, other option is Sainsbury's - which is actually BG. But would never let a BG engineer in my house they are expensive and have sales targets to meet. I took bulb kit, 2 hours on phone to Hive to get a light bulb to turn on and in background could hear all the other customers problems.
Is it just me. I'm sure they charge every month for hive.
At least that's what the advert says. Wtf. Why are loads of crap deals hit this week.

Are these wired thermostats? I have no wires


​No, battery operated. Read the forum on the hive website though. LOADS of complaints of batteries only lasting a couple of weeks.
Are these wired thermostats? I have no wires
In fairness the engineer couldn't install when he was there as it was a Sunday but said he'd book it in and come this morning. I got a call yesterday to say they wouldn't do the price on a pre-booked appointment and suggested as above that I call saying my programmer was playing up. Then get and installation from the engineer while he is there. (sounds like a common workaround if more than one engineer is suggesting it)
I've yet to do this but thought I'd post it in case it helped anyone. I guess in hindsight I should have put in the OP that it's more aimed at Homecare customers.

Got offered this by British gas engineer today for 150, thanks OP
Had an engineer in today for a Boiler Service under the Homecare banner (got it free with a new mortgage) and dropped in the fact my thermostat was playing up, he said "you want a digital one" so I said "Like Hive?" and he proceeded to just bad mouth the last person who serviced the boiler and recommend a £250 part that might be needed in the future...

No Hive here sadly.

Switch your energy package and choose the one which comes with 'smart lights and plug kit'. You get 1 Hive Hub, 1 Hive Active Plug, 2 Hive Active Lights. For me, I pay £20 more on my fuel over a year and I get more! Sounds good?
But your not getting Hive heating controls
How about using the smart phone with the app installed on it, would it work as a control?


No, you need the heating thermostat and receiver which is wired into your boiler for it to control your heating
evohome system.

Personally I would go for a multi room solution such as an evohome kit, it allows you to control the temps of each room separately, much better cost savings and all the convenience of a modern smart system

Just spoke to British Gas...not sure if I've been fobbed off....

Bloke said to get the reduced price of £149 I would need to be a Homecare customer. HOWEVER, the deal is available ONLY IF an engineer has to attend to fix a fault with the boiler. No fault to attend to - no deal.

The only offer is Hive fully installed for £249 with £50 cashback making it £199 or upgraded for £199 with £40 cashback making it £159

​yes and no. yes on the first part and the engineer will offer you the hive just say your controls are playing up..

Hmm I just had a look at the phillips hue bulbs and they are pretty much the same price. I think both are expensive.
I was looking to get a phillips hue kit but just learned that I don't need one as I already have Hive 2 installed and that has a hub so simpler for me to just grab some hive bulbs.

Will hold out till black friday incase they do some kind of sale.

OOPS! I just received a mail but none of the links work - someone at their website content management team made a mistake :)
I received a free photobox canvas picture with the British Gas offer but was disappointed with it. I had asked for it to be wrapped round but thought they would use better judgement because the photo had two friends on it but the heads are bent over the top of the frame. Surely they could have cut off some of the bottom of the picture to fit the heads on the main frame. In any case in the original photo there was a fair bit of room over the heads so there should have been no need for the heads to be wrapped over.

Dependant on which British Gas Tariff you are on of course. Those who took advantage of the British Gas Collective Fix December 2016 tariff will likely be getting a pretty good deal still.

Agreed, I took them up on the last moneysavingexpert collective switch and it was by far the most competitive at the time.

That being said I was surprised it was a BG tariff, all the rest of theirs was mind bogglingly expensive!
Nothing on God's great earth could tempt me back to BG. Worst company I have ever had to deal with, and I've been with Talk Talk.

Your complaint about Smart Metering Communications Body Ltd t/a Smart Energy GB A16-345395

Thank you for your recent complaint about a TV ad by the above advertiser.

Our role as an organisation is to help ensure that advertising is responsible, by that we mean legal, decent, honest and truthful. We can intervene if an ad appears likely to be in breach of the UK Codes of Advertising by, for example, being likely to cause serious or widespread offence, being materially misleading or risking causing significant harm. You can read more about our work here.

On this occasion, we’ve decided to put your concerns to the independent ASA Council for consideration. The ASA Council is the jury that decides whether advertisements have breached the Advertising Codes.

This can sometimes take some time, so we appreciate your continued patience while your complaint is considered. I will contact you again once Council have made a decision.

Kind regards

Really, come on, you'll have more radio waves coming from the WiFi in your house / Street etc.
Next you'll be telling us to where a tin foil Cape for protection like the guy off Better Call Saul.

I take it you don't have a degree in Physics? There's a world of difference between microwaves and WiFi, even more so once you put a couple of brick walls between them and you.

The problem I have, is that the pulses are only for a few seconds, but a lot more power than normal levels, the problem is no one knows how dangerous this can be, but since the suppliers are happy to quote the amount of RF, based over time rather than peak, i.e. to make it look safer than mobiles, I'm guessing they're not entirely sure about the dangers themselves.

My wifi equipment I control, can determine it's location and decide when it is switched on, a smart meter sits in your house, no ability to move it and no ability to control the amount of communication going. The companies responsible will tell you it only updates their computers every so many minutes, what they keep quiet is the whole thing has to work as a mesh network with your neighbours, so around 90+% of the communication is not your meter readings, but the protocol to keep the mesh working and potentially your neighbours data.

I've not got a problem with progress but since it barely offers an advantage over the existing system and certainly can't tell me anything I haven't already got in more detail, I really see no need for more RF signals to go through mine or my children's brains.

​I don't have a degree in Physics. Do I need to assume you do? If so, great (not an easy degree to get).
I do however have common sense. RF signals I know have a range/frequency and there's plenty of electronic devices in people's home.
Choosing a location as you say, OK, that is a point...people may not have a choice where the meter goes. I doubt it'll be in the middle of the living room or bedroom.

We could find stats and figures to prove each other's thoughts. However, with the technological age we live in, it would be very difficult to avoid the amount of RF signals. Whether you have a meter or not.

I'd also find it difficult to believe that the devices would be allowed to be placed in people's homes if they were unsafe. I mean a microwave can be really dangerous but I'm guessing 90% of the UK population have them and wonder how many have died/suffered an illness. I have one for cooking my porridge. I'm a Quaker oats champion! lol

Risk, however small is a risk as you've quite rightly mentioned. But I think we got more chance of being ran over by a car. Have a good day Mike & all the best.

Any cashback on this deal?
Have been with British Gas for years....may not have always been the cheapest but the difference is usually negligible and I gave always had a great online service with them. Have switched to their new Collective Fixed Rate Tariff which should save me approx £300 per year and they have waved any early exit fees to allow me to do this. Also be aware that if you qualify for the Warmer Homes Discount, this is not always offered by cheaper providers but they don't necessarily tell you unless you specifically ask.
Could potentially save £17 a year. Not worth the hassle and also don't trust BG.
Currently with Daligas and Robin Hood Energy, both exit fee free if better offer comes along.

Do this via mse cheap energy club for an extra £30 cashback.


^^ this.

It works it to be the cheaper current tariff for me too. But it may not be for some. Have you seen that standing charge??

Well done for raising the subject. Hopefully people will do something to save some money, either switch and save hundreds or take the £50 consolation prize.
This deal is colder than a British pensioner's home

I take it they only check boiler, and you have to pay extra for any repairs or replacement of parts etc?
Yes you would.
I have boiler cover with swinton £6.99 a month with £1500.00 per call out no excess.
Only covers boilers up to 15 years old.
I didn't know swinton offered boiler cover, going look into it.
Boiler now about 3 years old...so they lads who fitted it, service and test it and will replace anything if needed
Your far better putting the money you would pay for BG and the like... into a bank account
There will be enough for a NEW boiler after a few years...even after service and repairs
cburns
They were great a few years back....as above, service has gone right off... to a rip off
No longer with them.....and won't be again ;)
who are you with now? and how much do you pay?
This is not a service! It's a safety inspection.

If you get a subbie they are paid £21.50 per service, and hope to get a minimum of 10 done per day....
British Gas can't fix anything. They are specialists at just condemning boilers and trying to flog new ones. Shisters

I wish I knew about the June one but will wait till I get my voucher for the September one and my warm home discount in March , then will definitely leave I reckon as they are so expensive!!
Just to let people know. I signed up to fix and reward June and received the £50 amazon voucher. I have now changed onto fix and reward September and will receive another £50 amazon voucher. Same terms and conditions although the gas charges are slightly lower. Hope it helps someone.
Put the transfer to GBenergy! Haha
