I am not sure if it's account specific, hope that it's not. Would work great in conjunction with multibuy offers and 20% PickMyOwn :)

I applied for the card on 12 October and received the letter today.

It's maybe worth pointing out that you don't get a card as such. You have to cut the bottom corner out of the letter to make a paper card with a barcode on the back.

Apologies for the slight delay in getting back to you, just been out to buy some bargains at Asda, Aldi and Morrisons.I note a slight change in your tone which I’m putting down to the fact that you don’t like it when you are wrong (but I guess who does!). I know you questioned whether it might be account specific in your original post, so thanks for pointing that out and for editing your post.I attach a screen grab of an online shop to show that when I try to buy goods from Waitrose, the pick your own offers applied to the beers and the Pepsi, but not the Flash. The examples above suggest that you and ClashInDevon doesn't understand the how discounts at Waitrose work.I think I’ve proven my point that despite the 30% discount you can still buy the goods cheaper elsewhere but some people have more money than sense.I conclude that this deal is definitely for you, after all why would you want to buy cup mushrooms at 90p from Waitrose when you can buy them cheaper at Morrisons…(85p) or cheaper at Sainsbury’s (just £2.70 per kg) when you buy them loose, as opposed to the expensive £3 per kg option at Waitrose! (mind boggles)! [Image]


Funny thing is, you don’t like it when you are challenged.
For me, Waitrose is close to where I live. I do my shopping there. I have a job that allows me the funds to shop wherever I choose.

You are one of the many individuals that says “OMG I WOULD NEVA EVA EVA SHOP AT WAITROSSSSEE AS ITS SOOOO EXPENSIIIVVVEEEEE LIKE OMG” despite MANY a deal being available throughout the year.

I guess if you if you don’t like the deal, it isn’t for you.

I have just called British Gas and booked a service for tomorrow. My first question to them was am i signing up to a boiler agreement. As i'm a British Gas customer until the 26th I asked if I was tied in to getting my boiler serviced by them next year, I was told no.

Well I have an energy account with BG ( until 25th September ) and they put it on that.

Did eventually manage to cancel the agreement today.

How? No payment option is required for the free service?

BEWARE - if you book a boiler service like this they sign you up to an "Insurance and Repair" agreement, which you can not cancel online. I have tried once to cancel agreement by phone and they cut me off. Booked a phone call back.

Did manage to contact the boiler service online.

My interpretation was they work out average usage and give you a credit x16 in my case. Am I wrong as folk talking about turning the electricity up?


This is why I originally pointed out that the saving isnt that much. Hypothetical situation (very simplified):

Period of 10 days. Use 100kw/h on day 1, 0kw/h for the next 9 days.
Situation 1 you pay sod all as you claim day 1 free.
Situation 2 as is the case here you pay for 90kw/h and get 10kw/h free

Now expand that, 20 days on the same rule you get to pay for 95kw/h etc.

So the longer the period the less you actually get back and as this is over 6 months/12 months..... Well you see where i'm going with this. Tight arse BG ********.

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.

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.

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.

How about using the smart phone with the app installed on it, would it … 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 … 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 £159https://www.britishgas.co.uk/products-and-services/hive-active-heating.html#caveats2

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.

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