WTF are you talking about, yes just noticed my error with paid (drunk is my excuse).
But what 'mocking' was I doing? I was actually trying to stick up for someone! Also voted hot for the deal. Have you been trolling some of my other posts? What a saddo.

It was cheaper for me to go via moneysupermarket etc. Price went up dramatically when I went direct via BG.

If you're a Barclays reward customer and get Barclays home and contents insurance they give you £3/month in rewards. So £36 back over the year.

It would lose its remote functionality and would only function as a standard thermostat if you cancelled within the 14 day cooling off period.

Wondering if I could just use homeassistant for this.

Ordered just now, install tomorrow, thanks.

"4. Joints should be properly secured with screws
This is a common one. Whenever your flue is joined to bends or extensions, it’s important to drill the flue extensions, brackets and flue pipe together. You should technically have two screws in every joint. This is something people never used to do, so the flue joints would frequently come loose and become a danger.
As per new regulations, it’s now important to properly secure any flue joints and brackets, so check your engineer will do this.
"

Flue safety is important please do not ignore the advice of a gas engineer and maybe this explains why they mark it as At Risk

They pick things that aren't up to Euro 2025 standards or whatever nonsense (as others have mentioned) and condemn the boiler. Ie even if the boiler was 5 years old and didn't have x support or pipe fitted then, that's required now. I can see how they can prey on vulnerable or gullible by putting doubt in peoples minds unneccessarily.

I do spend approx of £1.50 a day which is £39 a month on a 30 day month as 4 of them are free days on a Sunday my daily standing charge is 23p
I still get a duel fuel discount so no I'm sorry but less than £10 week on a 3 bed property with 4 people living in it I think is pretty good
Edited by: "Matzi2000" 2nd Nov

Don't be fooled by nonsense . They are one of the most expensive

Couple of points Matzi:

1: What's your standing charge? This is still payable on the "free" days.

2: Do you really spend more than £1.50 worth every justday on electric units..?

3: British Gas also told me they were removing the £15 dual fuel annual discount.

I think maybe you could save more elsewhere x

I've had an email back from British gas as they have calculated my days wrong at 1st they gave me 6 days I've qualified for 20 my tariff gives me Sun as a free day so with my account I get 40 reward days plus the 53 free Sundays I get on my tariff so I'm only paying for 272 days of the year even if I'm only saving £1.50 a day it will be more but to air on safe side I would save £139.50 over the year win win for me :-)

My hike is not been affected as I'm in a fixed tariff until March 2018 but if I find I'm paying a 12% increase then I will leave but the other 2 rewards weren't voted cold and you have to be customer to receive the other 2 posted so I think there a double standard here somewhere

However the price for the Mummy with Blu-ray, from Sky is still £16.99. So your still paying Sky £16.99 for the Blu-ray, which is £2 more than elsewhere.

Lol! I was also in Waitrose a lot, so much so that when a block was put on my credit card (for other reasons!) and I called up to have this removed, 8/10 of the transactions I had to confirm were Waitrose. I've also not got conditional spend coupons for a while.. they sent me some coupons last week but the best was 25% off raisins. Hoping for some over Christmas. My local Watirose hasn't required authorisation for the coupon and I was told just to put the coupon in and out of the slot to - will need to be ready to plead ignorance if I get pulled up on that. I also won't be in Waitrose as much as I've started a new job and no longer drive past it twice a day.. probably not a bad thing.

They stopped the free weekend electric now as its reached its target so when I asked they said no but you will stay on it but I do get 16 days free electric when they decide to give it me as it can take upto 12 months and its only free 9am to 5pm I was told so they work out what you use in the 12 months waiting to calculate and then credit for that amount.



Terms on site -11. Your average daily electricity usage is calculated over a period of 6 months if you are a credit customer and over a period of 12 months if you are a

prepayment customer. To calculate the amount of credit you receive for your electricity usage between 9am-5pm per day, we apply a percentage of

35% to your average daily electricity usage and use the unit rate of your current tariff at the time that the credit is applied.

I got 20 free days but what does that mean.. when do they get taken off my bill?

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 ********.

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

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

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.

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?

What's the cheapest way to do this if not a british gas customer already? E.g cheapest way of joining BG for the offer then leaving them. Don't want to get caught up in a contract to take advantage of the Hive T&C

Any suggestions in choosing this vs Tado?

Just cancelled mine, 100% guaranteed that the remote aspect will still work.

£150 supplied, installed and setup

Thanks OP

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.

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

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.

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.

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!
