Collect 100 Nectar points just for being a customer of British Gas

With British Gas you can collect Nectar points just for being their customer.

You can now collect Nectar points with British Gas

You could collect 1,800 points in a year

They have joined up with British Gas now! That would explain why they have stopped with EDF Used to like my nectar points with EDF but it is still cheaper for me to stick with EDF.

You deserve more than 100 Nectar points for being with British Gas!

Thanks.

Not available to pre-payment (meter) customers

I don't have Gas or Electric from them but do have Home care, that also counts to receiving the nectar points. Just registered for the points.
Every point counts as I'm stopping with EDF.

Doesnt recognise my nectar card number

I noticed this at the bottom of the page, "If you are a Pay As You Go Energy™ customer, please call 0800 107 0185", but I'm not sure if that means folk on a pre-payment meter or not?

Used to do this with EDF - they lost nectar to BG. I hated BG before but now I really dont like them. Worst service ever.

Won't accept my Nectar card number either - says I must enter it with no spaces, etc - which I did!

It won't accept my nectar card either!

"We are sorry but there is a problem with some of the information you have submitted.
- The number you have entered is not correct. Please add the last 11 digits of your card, with no spaces and try again."

Hot. Thx. Just registered no problem

Ring up BG and tell them that you're with Nectar and you want to register your card. The addition of Nectar is REALLY new so there's still a lot of teething issues. Call centres, however, will be able to take the card details.
The amount of Nectar points you can get with BG are obscene; you get points for signing up, points for paying your bill by Direct Debit, points for going with paperless billing, points for going dual fuel... if you're a green, good little loyal customer you can get a good few thousand points in a year.

Forgot to add - you also gain points if you're with them for kitchen appliance cover.

I work in the IT department of a call centre that does outbound BG so I get a few pointers

Done mine thanks

With E-ON you get Tesco clubcard points(1 point for every £2 you spend on gas and electric) and you get it on Pre Payment meters as well!!!
plus if your are not with E-ON and you sign up in a Tesco store via a E-ON sales agent you'll get a welcome bonus of 1000 tesco clubcard points (500 points for each fuel)

Thanks - registered ok.

Mine worked TY I have a nectar card but never really use it so wouldn't of had a clue if you hadn't of posted!

Thanks. Have Central Heating Service Contract and have Registered ok. Voted Hot.

Thanx, Just registered no problem .. Every little bit counts !!

How is this a deal? You do realise that 100 Nectar Points equates to 50p?

i could be wrong, but isn't 100 nectar points worth less than a quid? I think it might actually be 50p!!

1,800 points = £9

ill do it tomorrow, cant be bothered tonight.

At what price do deals usually start?
If you're with BG and some of those things apply to you then it's a deal.

Thanks you ,very handy my bill comes to nearly £800 quarter

How is this hot? There are as many negative comments on here as positive ones, and to get points worth 50p for committing to a company that is normally among the most expensive seems like a complete non-deal to me.

However, many contributors to this site never fail to astound me.

Where please?

Don't copy and paste your Nectar number - type it in with no spaces and you will be fine.

NB: The 100 bonus points was for the FIRST DAY only! As of today, you no longer get 100 points just for signing up.

I sent them an email last night telling them that the website would not accept my card details. They phoned me up today and registered the card over the phone so I'm happy!

Registered too

Thanks OP dual fuel and paperless should add a few points

Great one - Thanks!

Just tried mine again and now has been accepted, same number as yesterday.

I have most the BG options already, will these get added?? like paperless billing, homecare, dual fuel etc...

Yes. If you don't see the points reflected on your Nectar balance 14 days after your bill, ring them up and let them know.

Also, for anyone joining here's a tid bit of info:
If you're given a credit offering (not applicable to all customers) when you change over to BG, they give you a choice on how to receive your credit - you can receive it 12 months after your first bill or incrementally via Nectar points (a lump amount then a set amount each quarter to make up the value of the credit offered). If you choose the money over the points, you gain points on the money.

For example, if you spend £800 a year on dual fuel and receive £100 at the end of the year, giving you £700 total, you will have earned points on the full £800. So, you essentially gain points and money off your bill that way.

I'm not pro-BG by the way, I'm just providing extra info where I can. BG can't match the rates we're getting at our household as we're on a... complicated tariff.
