So this Black Friday season, every Octopus Energy customer can win epic electric transport prizes. Sign up before 7th December for a free prize draw entry (our awesome existing customers get one too), and refer friends for more entries...and £100 credit to share!
Every referral you make will still include the usual £50 credit to both parties for referring.Read the full Terms and Conditions
Spread the word
We've made a poster to help you get your link out there - download it here, add your unique link, and stick it wherever friends, family or co-workers will see.
Every Octopus Energy customer on the 7th December gets a free entry into the draw.
The three legendary customers who have referred the most friends between 23rd November and 7th December will win their choice of the prizes. 1st place gets the first pick, 2nd in the table gets the second pick, and 3rd – you guessed it – gets third pick.
During the competition you can check your number of referrals in the league table on this page to see how well you're doing.
If you make referrals between 23rd November and 7th December you will get additional entries in the prize draw. One referral = One entry. Five referrals = Five entries.
Every referral you make will still include the usual £50 credit to both parties for referring.
Referrals are counted when a customer referral link is followed and the new customer starts their switch to Octopus Energy.
Entries are only valid for referrals who come through a customer's direct referral link. Third party links from other websites, unfortunately, won't get an entry into the prize draw.
We encourage people to get creative with where they share their referral link but don't pay for online advertising.
Don't post your link on public forums like TrustPilot – we'll have to kindly ask you to take them down.
All referrals made for the competition should be on supply 17 days after the competition ends. Any referrals who have cancelled in that time will not be counted.
We will know by New Years Day who the confirmed winners are and we'll let you know after the holidays if you've won an epic prize.
Minimum age to enter is 18.Read our full T&Cs here
I've referred a friend, how do I know if it has been counted?
Everyone's referrals are being counted and can be viewed on the live league table so customers can see how well they're doing in the competition.
Referrals in the competition are counted once a tariff has been chosen, all details have been entered and the account confirmed.
If you don't see the referral appear on the live league table it's likely your friend either hasn't entered all of their details yet or confirmed their account.
Be sure that your friends sign-up through your unique referral link too. If they sign up elsewhere the referral won't be counted.
Where can I share my referral code?
We want you to share your code far and wide, but there are a few restrictions. The main one is that you can't spam third party sites with it, such as adding it to your TrustPilot review – it's against their regulations, and we get contacted every time it happens.
Your code is designed for you to share with people you know, so go to town on Facebook, pin it to the top of your Twitter page, or even print it off and give it out at any events you attend!
I've referred friends in the past. Why wasn't there a competition then?
So it's a fair competition for everyone, customers who have referred friends in the past will start with up to two referrals that already count towards their tally.
As much as we'd like to make sure everyone is driving an electric vehicle, it's just not possible to give away electric cars all the time.
This looks really expensive! Why don't you give the money to your customers instead?
Actually, thanks to our friends at OctopusEV the amount we've spent is only equivalent to 29p per customer – which isn't too excessive.
However, if you don't wish to take part in the competition you can opt-out and claim your 29p when the competition starts.
