Frequently Asked Questions
Who can refer a friend?
To be able to refer a friend, you’ll need to be an existing British Gas customer with a home energy account. You’ll also need to have an online account with us.
How do I refer a friend?
Referring a friend is simple – you just need to access your online account, or set one up if you haven’t already. Don’t forget, you need to be an existing British Gas customer to refer a friend.
After we verify your details, we’ll give you a unique referral link which you can then send to as many friends as you like. You can see your unique link above, or you can find it by accessing your online account.
What does my friend need to do after I’ve referred them?
To be eligible for the referral reward, your friend needs to use your unique referral link to switch their energy to us. You can find more details of our qualifying products in our terms and conditions (PDF, 42 KB).
It’s important that your friend uses your unique referral link, so we know you’ve referred them. Otherwise you won’t be eligible for the referral gift card. Once they’ve completed their purchase, you won’t need to do anything else. We’ll verify their details and send you your Amazon.co.uk Gift Card via email – this can take up to 90 days.
What reward will we get?
Your reward is based on the product your friend purchases using your unique referral link. If they switch their electricity and gas, you’ll both get a £50 Amazon.co.uk Gift Card 1. Or if they choose to only switch one, you’ll both get a £25 Amazon.co.uk Gift Card 1. See terms and conditions (PDF, 42 KB) for more details.
When will we get our gift cards?
After your friend uses your unique link to join British Gas, we’ll need a little time to set up their account and check that the terms below have been met. If they have, we’ll send you and your friend your gift cards within three months of your policy start date. Read our full terms and conditions (PDF, 42 KB).
- If they’re switching their energy, they must not have had a British Gas energy contract within the past three months
- If your friend makes a qualifying purchase but cancels their agreement within 90 days of their supply or policy start date, you and your friend will no longer be eligible for the gift cards. And if they decide to switch to a different British Gas product within 90 days of their supply or policy start date, we’ll amend the value of your gift card to reflect their new product choice
Can I refer a friend that’s already with British Gas?
You can refer any friend looking to switch their energy, but only if they aren’t already a British Gas customer for that product.
- If you refer a friend to energy, they can’t already have energy with British Gas – but they can have a current HomeCare contract
- And you can’t refer yourself
Every friend you refer needs to use your unique referral link to buy a qualifying product – otherwise we won’t be able to send you your gift card.
How many friends can I refer?
You can refer as many friends as you like. And there’s no limit on the number of referral rewards you can earn, provided you and your friend meet the terms of the Refer a Friend scheme.
My friend has completed a purchase using my unique referral link, but I haven't received my gift card. What should I do?
Once your friend has joined British Gas, we’ll need a little time to do some checks – this can take up to three months. If you haven’t received your gift card within three months, check that you both meet the terms of the promotion:
- Did your friend use your unique referral link when switching their energy online?
- Is your friend new to British Gas?
- If your friend switched their energy to British Gas, make sure they didn’t have energy with us in the three months before joining
- Does your friend still hold the qualifying product 90 days after their supply start date or their policy start date?
If you’ve met all the terms of the promotion and you don’t think your reward should have been cancelled, please email email@example.com and we’ll look into it for you.
