Bord Gáis Energy Rewards: What's on offer & is it worth it?

Bord Gaís Energy logo

Bord Gáis Energy rewards scheme includes some serious benefits. If you’re already a Bord Gáis customer and haven’t signed up or looked into the rewards scheme, then you literally have nothing to lose and much to gain by doing so now.


We would even go as far as to say that the benefits of the reward scheme should definitely be taken into consideration if you’re considering switching to Bord Gáis Energy.

Read on to find out about all the different ways the reward scheme can benefit you and yours.

Join the club

If you are a Bord Gáis Energy customer and have an existing online account, you can simply log in to add Bord Gáis Energy rewards to your account.

If you’re an existing customer but don’t have an online account, you’ll need to register for one online (keep a bill handy as you’ll need several details from it in order to register) and then add Bord Gáis Energy rewards to your new dashboard.

Rewards overview

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let’s take a look at what kind of offers you can expect from the Bord Gáis Energy rewards scheme. You can get discounts, vouchers and cashback through Bord Gáis’ partnerships with the following companies:

  1. Tesco
  2. GAA
  3. Center Parcs
  4. Bord Gáis Energy theatre
  5. Circle K

Bord Gáis Energy is also looking to add other categories to their rewards scheme soon, dealing with travel, sports, books etc. so do keep an eye out.

Tesco

Bord Gáis Energy has partnered with Tesco to bring some money-saving opportunities to their customers. Bord Gáis customers can use Tesco Clubcard vouchers to get double the money back off their bills.

For example, a €2.50 Tesco Clubcard voucher will net you €5 in savings against your next Bord Gáis Energy bill. In a nice bit of reciprocity, you’ll also earn Clubcard points by paying your BGE bills. For every €2 paid off your gas and/or electricity bill, you’ll earn one Clubcard point. It’s a win-win situation!

To take advantage of any savings to be made you’ll obviously need to be already signed up for a Tesco Clubcard and Bord Gáis Energy rewards.

Money off your Bord Gáis Energy bill

If you’ve successfully signed up to both rewards systems (BGE and Tesco) and would like to turn your Clubcard vouchers into money off your energy bills, you’ll then need to:

  1. Log in to your Tesco Clubcard account.
  2. Click on “Redeem Vouchers Now” and select the option to get the Bord Gáis Energy deal when it comes up.
  3. Wait to receive your Bord Gáis Energy redemption codes (you should receive them within 24 hours)
  4. Log in to your Bord Gáis Energy rewards online account and enter the codes to credit them against your next bill.

Get Tesco Clubcard points

In order to earn Clubcard points when paying your Bord Gáis Energy bills, you’ll need to register your Tesco Clubcard via your Bord Gáis Energy online account, in the rewards section.

GAA

If you’re a fan of the GAA then you’ll definitely be a fan of Bord Gáis Energy’s GAA offering. Through Rewards, you can get access to VIP events, and opportunities to present a Man of the Match award or be a flag-bearer at games.

In addition, a certain amount of tickets are reserved for Bord Gáis Energy Rewards members, so you’ll even be able to get tickets to sold-out matches!

Center Parcs

Avail of hotel, dining and activity discounts.

Bord Gáis Energy theatre

Another amazing facet of the Bord Gáis Energy Rewards scheme is the ability to buy discounted tickets for the well-known Bord Gáis Energy theatre before they go on sale to the general public. 

Some tickets are usually set aside for Bord Gáis Energy rewards customers so that even if a show is sold out, you may still be able to get a ticket! There also complimentary upgrades available for Rewards members.

Circle K

Bord Gáis Energy Rewards members can apply for a fuel card which will entitle them to a discount of 3 cents per litre at Circle K garages. To get the card, you’ll need to visit the Rewards fuel card page and enter your Bord Gáis Energy account number.

The fuel card is free and you can even get 14 days of interest-free credit on fuel purchases. The card operates by direct debit and purchases are totalled weekly and then charged to your account seven days later.

That means that even if you forget your bank cards, you’ll still be able to use this card to pay at gas stations.

Verdict

If you are already a Bord Gáis Energy customer or have been considering switching to the company, then signing up for Rewards is a bit of a no-brainer, especially if you shop at Tesco, love GAA and are a theatre aficionado.

However, in terms of savings, we’d still recommend you shop around and look for the cheapest energy provider deal before making the switch. Or, if you’re out of contract with BGE, switch to a new provider to take advantage of new customer discounts.

Remember that although loyalty schemes are a nice touch, switching gas and electricity provider every 12 months is what will actually save you between €300-€400 a year.
