Bord Gáis Rewards Club: Customer Deals & Vouchers
Bord Gáis 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.
Read on to find out about all the different ways your and yours can benefit from Bord Gáis Rewards.
Bord Gáis 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 rewards scheme. You can get discounts, vouchers and cashback through Bord Gáis’ partnerships with the following companies:
- Circle K
- Bord Gáis Energy Theatre
In addition to the partnerships, Bord Gáis Energy is also looking to add other categories to their rewards scheme soon, such as travel and sports rewards..
Bord Gáis 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 bill. In a nice bit of reciprocity, you’ll also earn Tesco Clubcard points by paying your BGE bills. For every €2 paid off your gas and/or electricity bill, you’ll earn one Tesco Clubcard point. It’s a win-win situation!
To take advantage of any savings to be made, you’ll need to sign up for a Tesco Clubcard and Bord Gáis rewards.
How do I redeem Tesco vouchers for Bord Gais?
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, follow these four steps to redeem your Tesco vouchers for Bord Gais energy savings:
- Log in to your Tesco Clubcard account.
- Click on “Redeem Vouchers Now” and select the option to get the Bord Gáis deal when it comes up.
- Wait to receive your Bord Gáis redemption codes (you should receive them within 24 hours)
- Log in to your Bord Gáis Rewards online account and enter the codes to credit them against your next bill.
If you’re a fan of the GAA, then you’ll definitely be a fan of this offering. Through Bord Gáis Rewards, you can normally get access to VIP events, as well as opportunities to present a "Man of the Match" award or be a flag-bearer at games. A certain amount of tickets are usually reserved for Bord Gáis Rewards members, meaning you’ll even be able to get tickets to sold-out matches!
However, it's undeniable that things are a bit different this season. Bord Gáis Rewards now are now more focused on watching the games from home. GAA offers through Bord Gáis Rewards now include signed jerseys and GAAGo passes.
Every year, GAA gives Bord Gáis Rewards members the opportunity to tour Croke Park with a GAA legend. As tours were not available last year, guests were instead invited to a virtual tour. Some of the legends that participated included Joe Connolly, Rena Buckley and Jamsie O’Connor.
Circle K Rewards
Bord Gáis Rewards members can apply for a fuel card on the Bord Gáis website. This card will give you 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 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. 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.
Bord Gáis Rewards Club members can get up to 15% off a car insurance policy with Zurich when they get an online quote and buy the policy online directly from Zurich. This discount can be broken down into two parts: a 5% exclusive discount for Bord Gáis Rewards Club members and a 10% discount for getting a quote and signing up online through Zurich.
In addition to a car insurance discount, Bord Gáis Rewards Club members can also get up to 20% off a home insurance policy with Zurich. As with the car insurance discount, you must get the quote online and buy the policy online directly from Zurich in order to take advantage of the discount.
Bord Gáis Energy Theatre Rewards
Another amazing facet of the Bord Gáis 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 Rewards customers so that even if a show is sold out, you may still be able to get a ticket! There are also complimentary upgrades available for Bord Gáis Rewards members.
Since opening, the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre has hosted more than 500 productions and raised its curtain almost 3,500 times. Over five million audience members have watched its productions, which include shows from the best of the West End and Broadway, as well as niche and local productions.
Join the Bord Gáis Rewards Club
If you are a Bord Gáis customer and have an existing online account, you can simply go to the Bord Gáis log in page to add Bord Gáis Rewards to your existing online 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 BGE rewards to your new dashboard. If you have any problems or would like help setting up your online account, you can also give Bord Gáis a call on one of their contact phone numbers.
Bord Gáis Rewards Verdict: Should I join?
If you are already a Bord Gáis customer or have been considering switching to the company, then signing up for Bord Gáis Energy Rewards is a bit of a no-brainer, especially if you shop at Tesco, love GAA or 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. The table below shows the cheapest electricity offers per supplier so that you can calculate how much you'd save by switching.
|Supplier||Best offer||Price per year|
|Electric Ireland||5.5% Discount
|BE Energy||28% off unit rate
20% off standing charge
|Bord Gáis Energy||32% Discount||€832.11|
|SSE Airtricity||10% Discount
|Pinergy||40% off from 6pm-10pm||€1,045.63|
