Terms and Conditions for electricity Loyalty Days ("Offer")

About the offer

1. This Offer lasts for 12 months from the date the Offer is taken.

2. No purchase is necessary and an eligible Rewards member is entitled to free daytime electricity with Loyalty Days over a period of 12 months.

Eligibility of the offer

3. You will be eligible for two Loyalty Days for every year you have held an electricity supply contract at your current address with British Gas, up to a

maximum of 20 days.

4. You must have a valid and current electricity supply contract with British Gas through either a credit or prepayment meter.

5. If you have an electricity contract with us at more than one property you can only register for Loyalty Days at one property.

6. This Offer is not open to Sainsbury's Energy customers.

7. British Gas reserves the right to verify the eligibility criteria.

Calculating a Loyalty Day

8. A Loyalty Day refers to your average daily electricity usage between 9am-5pm at a zero unit rate. This means that you will receive a credit

equivalent to the average value that you would have paid on your relevant electricity tariff for that period. The daily standing charge continues to

apply.

9. For a smart meter customer, the average daily electricity usage is calculated using actual meter readings. If for any reason we cannot obtain smart

meter reads an average daily electricity usage will be calculated in the same way it is for non-smart meter customers described in clause 10.

10. For a non-smart meter customer the average daily electricity usage is calculated using your most up to date consumption information, taking into

account recent meter reads. If for any reason we don't have a consumption information available to calculate an average daily electricity usage we

will use an industry average daily to calculate an average daily amount.

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.

Receiving your Loyalty Days

12. If you have a credit meter you will receive two credits each year. These will appear on your next bill after 6 months and your next bill after 12

months of taking the Offer.

13. If you have a prepayment meter you will receive one credit at the end of the 12 month period from the date that you took the Offer.

14. If there is any outstanding debt the credit will be used to pay this off in the first instance.

If you move home or leave

15. If you move home even if you have electricity with British Gas at the new property the Offer will be invalid and you will not receive any credits. You

may be able to sign up to the Offer again at your new property, but the allocation of days will reset to start at two days.

16. If you leave Rewards and/or no longer have an electricity supply contract with British Gas you will not be eligible for the Offer, and won't receive any

further credits.

Other important information

17. Loyalty Days are subject to availability. British Gas reserves the right to modify, restrict availability, withdraw, replace or discontinue the Offer and to

make changes to these terms and conditions at any time, for any reason, and without prior notification or liability to the Rewards member.

18. The laws of England and Wales or Scotland apply to your contract, depending on where your property is.

do you get to choose they days or do they average it out? cause you could basically charge some big batteries on those days.

They average out and credit it to your account every 6 months

Cold. They added a 12.5% price hike last month. 2 days per year is 0.5% and it's probably realistically not even that much .


FWIW This is what I did as soon as BG kindly informed me of the hike:
Logged into moneysavingexpert.com/che…lub then opened up topcashback and found one that cross-checked near the top results of each. Surprised to say I have been with EDF for gas and electric for several weeks now.
I didn't even have to give them any readings - they got all info from British Gas themselves. Amazing!
(Haven't got my tcb yet though...)

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

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 :-)

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

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

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
