Anyone got the email from this current offer with the redemption code?

Anyone got the email from this current offer with the redemption code?
Thanks, just ordered mine
I also got this offer via the British Gas rewards scheme a couple of months ago and used it just recently. It was easy to set up and as advertised I did receive a copy of the film via dvd 10 days later. The voucher was set up to expire 31/08/2017. It seems they are doing different rewards each month so far had mini chocolate box (and I mean mini) the Sky voucher and this months for me is a Wilbert the Penguin stuffed toy...

Got my code when this was first posted, thanks OP! Went on the bg website to check my bill this week and the option to join rewards was there again... Opted in and got sent a second code that I've just used! Could be worth having a check if you're with bg to try and get another. Don't know what difference it makes but I used a laptop to go onto bg website, not the mobile page x
Nice one! Didn't have that in ours. Been pondering what to get... something you've seen, but then you've seen it... if you've not, maybe it's poopy.
Anyone know if the £13.99 voucher can only be used on one purchase, or if you got two for £6 (not saying that's possible... just want to know for now) if you get both free?

can be used on two, its just credit - i think on page 2 of the comments someone did exactly this

Requested the code (and joined MyRewards) on 28th April but didn't receive the actual code until the 9th May, so you might have to wait longer than their stated 5 days.
Purchased Passengers (was fairly good actually!), DVD will be delivered by the 25th.

I have just taken out homecare to take advantage of this offer. My boiler was due a service anyway and they are coming out on the 26th to do this. They are coming to install the hive tomorrow. Can I cancel the homeserve or do I need to keep this for the whole year?


Is taking out homecare the cheapest way to take advantage of this offer if your not a british gas customer?
Anyone advise what's the cheapest way to join BG to take advantage of this offer?

Dammit! My post has gone so cold, I'm going to have to turn my heating up.

I wasn't intending to change my tariff so the one day free deal stands in my opinion as a good deal. After reading all of these comments, I will have a look into switching unless BG have managed to tie me in somehow now that I've installed the smart meter.

In the meantime I'll tell the missus to do all the washing, drying etc on the free day. We always do a big roast on Sundays so of course it will save money. My actual tariff is unchanged compared to the meter switch-over so I expect to save around £100 over the course of the year by not switching and using this deal.

Never had a recertification letter from networks in your area? They normally would send one each quarter. Its the ombudsmen who enforce the rulling. It can also be changed under Warrant (crazy I know)

Not yet but a change to a smart meter is not mandatory (yet).

]What do you do when they are unable to supply you with a standard meter? Your meter has a shelf life, suppliers would leave it in for up to 15 years but the average one will change the meter every 7-10 years. The meters they will install will be smart as they wont have a stock of the old led display meters.
My meter has not been changed since 1993.
When it breaks down, then I will change it, not when they say so.

I was told by B.G. that this "free" energy only applies to people on their standard tariff "most expensive" & can only be used on the weekend which is the time of their lowest demand.

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.

If your with British Gas for your energy.... then you do need a reward.... a fracking big one
But you don't need it....you've got money to burn.... up to £350 apparentlyhttp://www.moneysavingexpert.com/latesttip/ read the lastest

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?

Trust me, you won't get anything from them. My mother-in-law had a battle with them years ago when they advertised free nectar points for joining BG energy, think it was £100 of nectar but not 100% sure. She had numerous phone calls, got escalated etc., she only got something like £10-£20 of nectar points in the end as a "goodwill gesture", absolute joke :(

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.

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.


Incorrect on sales targets. They can recommend products but nothing happens if they don't manage to sell. They would also never pressure anything on a customer.

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

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..

Just wish hive would Lower prices, very high vs others on the market

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.

Got mine delivered yesterday; very surprised at the quality, bearing in mind it was free!


Mine has now arrived and I agree. Excellent quality for a freebie. I did use a professional photo so i think that helped.

Have emailed British Gas, but looks like no answer....:(
I had the same problem and asked British Gas. They replied saying the same code was issued to multiple people, and that we have to wait for a new code to be emailed.

Thanks for replying! I've been mailing them but no response yet. Will keep eyes peeled.

I have just read, you get free elec, but only on one day of the weekend,it is misleading, it says 9am sat till 5 pm sun, but that's not right, you can have it sat or sun but not the both.
I don't know how are still people on standard tariffs years and years..like mortgages like mobile plans etc e5c when contract gets to an end ppl need to shop around.

Looks like I will only cook/keep warm part Saturday and part Sunday from now on then lol
Overall tariffs are much expensive than other suppliers. I was on the standard tariff for a very long time but recently changed to Scottish power, I never thought there could be a big difference in price

Was on radio earlier, this is 40%more than cheapest tariff, this is a total home exploiting those who are more interested in headlines rather than facts. Disgrace they are even allowed to advertise this
disgrace? bit harsh.... like the mobile monthly plans doesn't suit all and this tariff either. like I mentioned if you are away from your home during the week this is super deal

British Gas are the biggest crooks. They're the ones who started all these prices hikes and then the other crooks followed suit. Now they're giving a petty £3 quid to their customers through a Argos purchase. What a joke I say.

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.

Just what you want from an energy company - chocolate - no wonder they are losing so many customers.
We're sorry, all of the boxes of chocolates have gone. Unfortunately, we don't have enough boxes of chocolates for everyone. But we do have more giveaways coming soon - keep an eye on your inbox for our emails.
I got the email and claimed mine :-)
Had some the last time they sent the email, managed to bag a second batch today. Diabetes ahoy.
All gone - I guess they don't like people who go out to work for the day.

Off track I know but I just made a complaint against https://www.smartenergygb.org/en for using cartoon characters playing with gas and electrical appliances which may influence children in their adverts to Advertising Standards Authority, they up held the complaint and it is now to be reviewed by the ASA council

The advert:

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.

mike


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.

british gas logoMake Savings on Heating and Cooking With British Gas

As the name suggests, British Gas started out as a nationalised company. In fact, it was founded under a royal charter back in 1812, making it one of the first gas providers in the world.

The Labour government took British Gas fully under public ownership in 1948, and it expanded across the length and breadth of the country, becoming the go-to provider for home gas hook-ups. However, in 1986, the government made a radical decision, opting to sell British Gas to ordinary shareholders. Eventually, ownership passed to Centrica, who remain British Gas’ parent company.

Where Can I Buy Products From British Gas?

If you are looking for gas or electricity hook-ups, servicing arrangements or equipment like smart meters for your home, the British Gas website is the place to go: www.britishgas.co.uk allows you to order products, book engineer appointments, and get in touch with the company.

If you just want to top up a pay-as-you-go meter, you can do so at a wide range of local shops, including 23,500 PayPoint shops located all over the country.

The British Gas Product Range

When you visit britishgas.co.uk, you’ll find all of the gas-related products and services you need to heat your home and cook your meals. For example, product areas at the site include:

  • Energy - Features a range of different tariffs, the ability to create completely new gas and electricity connections, help managing energy bills and priority services for customers needing a little extra support.
  • Home Services - Includes home and boiler insurance, the chance to book one-off repairs, new boilers, landlord services and also cover for home appliances that use gas. The centrepiece of this section is HomeCare, British Gas’ energy supply service. With HomeCare, you can purchase electricity and gas, as well as boiler cover and other insurance products. You’ll also be able to book engineer appointments instantly from your online account using the smartphone app.
  • Smart Home - Features innovative technology like smart meters, which measure how much energy homes are producing, and makes recommendations about how to conserve energy, saving money in the process. This section also includes Smart technology that allows you to control your gas and lights remotely with a smartphone, as well as Boiler IQ, which deals specifically with enhancing the efficiency of domestic boilers.

British Gas provide plenty of other services along with these basic products. There’s a comprehensive help and support site to provide guidance and help those moving home, as well as a deals section to point customers towards the cheapest offers and special services for business customers as well.

Sales and Loyalty Scheme at British Gas

British Gas is always running special offers to attract new customers and reward existing users of their services. The first place to look if you want a cheap gas connection or products is their Exclusive Offers section, which provides both free HomeCare deals and free servicing.

The company also offers discounted tariffs which don’t appear under the Exclusive Offers pages. For example, their FreeTime tariff for smart meter customers provides free electricity between 9am – 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays, so it’s worth exploring.

The British Gas HotUKDeals pages are the best place to check regularly for British Gas deals. Whenever discounted tariffs and other special offers are announced, you’ll find them straight away at HotUKDeals.

British Gas doesn’t run a classic loyalty scheme, but it is a major player in the popular Nectar Card program. If you are a Nectar Card holder, you can rack up points by shopping with British Gas, while receiving monthly e-mails featuring special deals from Nectar’s partners.british gas keeping you warm this winter
