Electric Ireland Rewards
Electric Ireland rewards is a popular loyalty scheme run by Electric Ireland to reward their customers (and encourage them to stay with Electric Ireland). Up until 2015 the scheme was known as “Electric Ireland powering rewards*”.
*Powering rewards customers who haven’t been online in a while can recover their points and account and access them through the Electric Ireland rewards login.
Why sign up for Electric Ireland rewards?
A quick look at the benefits offered on the Electric Ireland rewards portal makes it clear that signing up is a bit of a no-brainer. In fact, the rewards are so well thought out that all things being equal, if the difference between Electric Ireland’s gas and electricity tariffs and that of another supplier is not that big (less than €100 a year), we would definitely swing towards signing up with Electric Ireland just to gain access to the loyalty scheme.
Rewards can be divided into three different sections:
What is not immediately apparent from the homepage is that you can also register a SuperValu Real Rewards card within your Electric Ireland rewards account.
The Go section of Electric Ireland rewards includes discounts on hotels and holiday packages. In June 2019 the offer in this section was a 10% discount off any hotel or guesthouse booking made through the Ireland hotels website. This could certainly come in handy with the summer holiday period just around the corner, whether you’re planning a staycation or a jaunt to the other side of the island.
The Get section of the loyalty scheme webpage details offers discounts on products and services. There were four offers when we had a look, featuring some sizeable discounts:
- 85% off an Open Fairways Golf membership (saving €84)
- A free three month subscription to The Mindfulness App. (a saving of nearly €27)
- 20% off parking at any Q-Park car park.
- A one-time 15% discount of any Just Eat order made through the Just Eat app.
While the first two discounts might not be used by the majority of EI customers, we can definitely see how useful the last two discounts would be.
The Win section is pretty self-explanatory and offers tickets to events, and giveaways. Personally, this is a big perk for us as who doesn't like the thrill of entering a competition? And when it's hassle-free, so much the better. Currently, there is only one prize up for grabs, a €50 gift card for Peter Mark.
Competitions also seem to be updated monthly, so if the current one is of no interest to you, the next one may well be.
Registering for Electric Ireland rewards
If you’re currently an Electric Ireland customer, then you can simply join by registering online. You’ll need to enter:
- Your personal details
- Your Electric Ireland account number (can be found in the top right corner of your bill)
- An email address
Enter your details, choose a password, accept the terms and conditions and confirm you are an account holder, and you’re ready to roll. Note that passwords must be at least 8 characters long and contain at least one number and one letter.
It goes without saying that if you’re not an Electric Ireland customer, then you won’t be able to successfully apply for membership to the Electric Ireland rewards scheme.
Once you have registered for the rewards scheme through the Electric Ireland portal, you can then download the app through either Android Market or the Apple Store, and use the login details you specified when registering, or alternatively log in online.
Supervalu Real Rewards
If you link your SuperValu Real Rewards card to your EI rewards account, you can earn Real Rewards points every time you pay your Electric Ireland energy bills and by shopping at SuperValu.
Free points! You will also get 250 free welcome points just for registering your Real Rewards card on your Electric Ireland rewards account.
For every €3 payment off your energy bills, you will receive 1 point on your SuperValu card. Points earned by paying your bills will appear in your SuperValu account 30 days after payment. You can also earn one point for every €1 you spend at SuperValu. It’s that easy and you’ll be getting points for activities you were probably already doing.
How do I get a SuperValu loyalty card?
SuperValu Real Rewards cards can only be obtained by requesting a registration form in-store. You can ask to sign up at the Customer Service desk, or cashiers will also ask you whether you’d like to sign up at checkout. The card is usually in a handy keyfob format so you’ll always have it with you, and it can be used at any SuperValu outlet.
How do I redeem my SuperValu points?
You’ll need to create an online account and register your Real Rewards card in order to go about redeeming your points.
How do I get SuperValu vouchers?
Depending on the number of points you have collected, you can view which Money Back vouchers are available to you through your online Real rewards account or the Real rewards app. SuperValu also sends out Money Back vouchers three times a year, with values ranging from €2.50 to €80 depending on the number of points collected.
How do I use my SuperValu Electric Ireland voucher?
One of the most useful benefits to the SuperValu-Electric Ireland partnership is the ability to use your SuperValu Real Rewards points to obtain vouchers which can be used against your Electric Ireland energy bills.
You can convert 500 of your Real rewards points, or one €5 Money Back voucher, to get a €10 voucher code for Electric Ireland. Log in to your Real Rewards online account or use the app to convert your points.
Then head over to the Electric Ireland Rewards site and enter the 9-digit code from your voucher. The value of the voucher will then be applied against your next energy bill for the account you’ve chosen (gas or electricity). The discount will appear on your Electric Ireland bill as “Your Real Rewards Savings”.
How do I contact SuperValu?
If you have any issues with your logging into your Real Rewards account or are unable to register, you can call the dedicated helpdesk, email, or stop by the Customer Service Desk in any SuperValu store. If you contact them by email, you should receive a response within 24 hours.
