Back in early June, when the weather was sunny and still bearable, we ran a competition for you, our customers, to win a load of prizes which our friends had generously shared with us. We asked you to post a picture, joke, poem, story or anything octopus related on social media and tag a friend.
We got many more responses than we had anticipated and a lot of original and wonderfully quirky ideas. These included an intergenerational family poem, limerick and haiku as well as a number of funny jokes. ‘How to make an octopus laugh’ was by far the most popular.
After we shortlisted a number of our favourite entries we randomly selected three of them for 3rd, 2nd and 1st prizes.
Our winner was Alex Bordoli from Tottenham and I travelled up to deliver the giant pink box of prizes myself, which she was a little excited to see.
What's in the box?
Most of the prizes came from people we are currently working with. Here's what we crammed into the giant pink box:
- A TESLA supercar driving experience. (A voucher for, we couldn't find a box large enough for the Tesla)
- A set of Bose wireless headphones
- Four weekend tickets to Valley Fest - www.valleyfest.co.uk
- £100 credit for the energy bills.
- £120 in Majestic Wine Gift Cards
- A 12 month tastecard, with access to half-price restaurants and discounted cinema tickets
- A giant pink fluffy octopus!
- Lots of sweets and octopus finger puppets
In total all the above came to over £1000 in prizes! Thanks to all our friends who made this possible.
Due to our first competition being so popular we will certainly be running more in the future. In fact, head over to our facebook page or twitter and leave us a message on what you would like our next competition to involve and don't forget to follow us for updates on the next huge giveaway.
Not yet a customer?
People deserve better from their energy suppliers. At Octopus Energy we truly put the customer as our first priority and we're transparent about where our profits go. Yes, we love to give away prizes online, give customers a chance to spin a wheel of fortune when they submit meter readings and share profits with them when they share the love.
Our customers love all of this, but at the heart of the company is the desire to improve the industry and better our air pollution. We spent two years campaigning for an energy price cap to put an end to the bad tactics used by other suppliers. Recently, the energy price cap became law which will help millions of households save money this winter. Whoop! The UK Prime Minister tweeted it here: Energy price cap tweet.
