E.ON pulls the plug on rewards scheme – here’s what to do
Big Six supplier E.ON has announced its popular rewards scheme will end in March, affecting two million customers.
Customers that opted in to the scheme have until 30 June to swap accumulated points for Tesco Clubcard points or Bonusbond vouchers.
E.ON Rewards allowed customers to earn up to 1,500 points by choosing the scheme on one of its electricity-only or dual-fuel plans.
The points could then be traded in for Tesco Clubcard points, which could be spent in stores, or Bonusbond vouchers, which are used to get money off in more than 18,000 bars, hotels and restaurants.
What happens to my E.ON Rewards points?
If you’re a new or existing customer on E.ON’s standard tariff, EnergyPlan, you’ll carry on earning points until 31 March.
If you’re on a fixed deal that offers the scheme, you’ll get the points you’ve already accumulated during your fixed period upfront within 28 days of the end of March.
The scheme is due to end on 30 June.
So, if you’re on an eligible tariff, make sure you redeem your points by the cut-off date.
How do I check how many points I’ve got?
Simple, log in to your E.ON account and head to the rewards section or give E.ON a ring on 0345 059 9905.
Since December last year, none of E.ON’s new tariffs have offered the scheme. If you signed up to E.ON in the last six weeks, you won’t be eligible for rewards points.
E.ON said it would contact eligible customers with advice on what to do.
The company didn’t say, however, whether it would replace the Rewards scheme or abandon it altogether.
Switching still the best way to save
E.ON Rewards was a neat way to squeeze every last drop of value out of your tariff.
But the best way to cut energy costs is still to switch supplier.
