Refer a Friend: Give £50 + Get £50

We've just made it easier to refer your friends and family. Help them go green (and earn some free energy while you're at it!)

Update: This blog post is now out of date. You can read the latest post here.

Calling all Bulbites! We've made it easier and more rewarding to share the Bulb love with your friends, family, interns, colleagues, and anyone you see on the street with your own personalised referral link. We've also set the rewards HIGH. Right now, if you refer a friend you get £50 and they get £50. So, if you refer about 15 people that could be free energy for a year. Result.

We might have to bring the rewards down in the future, so get referring now. It's as easy as 1,2... 50.

We'll add the credit to your Bulb account once the switch completes. Which is usually 3 weeks after your friend signs up. If you end up with loads of credit in your Bulb account, we'll send a refund to your bank account.

We think your friends will love Bulb

With 100% renewable electricity, top rated service and Bulb members saving +£200 per year on average when they join, it's a no brainer.

All of our electricity comes from independent hydro plants or other renewable sources. And 10% of our gas is green too. Our members have rated us #1 on Trustpilot, which we're really grateful for. And the average Bulb member saves over £200 on their bills when they join.

It's super easy to set up: just choose your link and begin sharing. You can choose anything you like. Unless it's already been taken, so grab a good one now. Choose your link.

About Bulb's Refer a Friend programme

How do I get my reward? We'll add credit to your Bulb accounts when your friend's switch completes successfully. This will be 3 weeks after they sign you up. We'll shoot you both an email when it happens. It's possible that your friend might not complete the switch. Fingers crossed this won't happen though.

How many times can I earn this reward? About 26 million. There are "only" about 26 million homes in the UK, so you've got a few to get through before you run out. The reward amount may change in the future, so make the most of it while it's available.

How can I tell who I've referred? We'll send you an email whenever someone signs up with your link. We're also building a fancy referral dashboard with useful features where you can see this as well. We'll let you know when this is ready.

How should I invite people? People like to put off thinking about their energy, so why not get them a quote when you're together. Email, twitter and carrier pigeon all work pretty well too. 

Go get 'em!
