OVO Energy Refer a Friend is a unique reward scheme, where an OVO Energy customer can get a £25 gift card by referring a friend who then takes on OVO as their energy supplier. You can refer a friend at this page, and if your friend takes on OVO as their supplier, then you will be rewarded with your choice of a £25 M&S, Argos or Amazon.co.uk Gift Card (these are subject to change).
The Refer a Friend reward scheme from OVO is not dissimilar to those offered by Utilita and Ebico. However, few energy suppliers / utility companies offer such schemes on a permanent basis, with most suppliers choosing to offer the reward as a limited time offer.
To refer a friend to OVO Energy, all you have to do is visit the OVO website ‘refer a friend’ page (linked, above) and follow the instructions. The best way to refer a friend is to send an email to your friend. You will get a confirmation or ‘thank you’ email from OVO afterwards. It takes around 30 days to receive your reward from referring a friend to OVO Energy. Please note that you will not get a reward if your friend does not take on OVO as their supplier. It is also important to note that the friend you refer will have 3 months to take on OVO. There’s no limit to the number of rewards you can earn though – so feel free to refer as many friends as you like to earn multiple gift cards.
