Reap the rewards when you refer a friend to Shell Energy

Everybody loves an easy way to make money, and our Refer a Friend scheme is a no-brainer. If you introduce a friend (or family member, or work colleague) to the benefits of being on supply with us, we’ll give you both a £50 Gift Card, or a John Lewis, Pre-Paid MasterCard, or Tesco voucher for the same amount.

You can refer your friends knowing that you’re helping them to make better energy choices. 

Let your friends reap the benefits of switching to Shell Energy Broadband. We provide fast, reliable broadband at great prices. And our customer service goes a step beyond – that’s why Resolver awarded us its top accolade.

By switching to Shell Energy, your friends will also save money on fuel – our Shell Go+ loyalty programme gives our customers a 3% discount at the service station, along with a host of other special deals and offers.

And it goes without saying that we’ll give them 100% renewable electricity as standard.

Referring is easy. Simply log into your account to get your referral link, send it to your friends, and they can follow the steps from there. We recommend sharing your link via email, or through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and WhatsApp. That way you can spread the love – and earn lots more rewards in the process.

Got a question? Here are the answers to some FAQs…

How does Refer a Friend work?

It’s easy. Simply share your referral link with anyone you know who might want to reduce their energy bills. It doesn’t have to be a close friend – it could be anybody. Once they switch online to Shell Energy via your referral link, you’ll both receive a £50 Gift Card, or a John Lewis, Tesco, or Pre-Paid MasterCard voucher for the same amount.

What’s the small print?

To make sure everything runs smoothly and you get your rewards promptly, there are a few things you’ll need to know:

How many friends can I refer?

You can refer as many friends as you like. But you can’t earn more than five rewards in any 24-hour period, or 25 over 12 months. And your friend can’t have the same email address as you, as this will invalidate the reward.

How do I share?

Copy your referral link and send it to your friends via email, WhatsApp, or whatever social-media channels you prefer.

When will I receive my gift voucher?

You’ll both receive your reward no more than 90 days after your friend switches to Shell Energy.

Why haven’t I received my reward?

It may be that your friend didn’t use the referral link to switch. Just so it’s totally clear: your friend needs to click on the link and sign up via that. If they switch any other way – including going directly through the Shell Energy website – you risk not getting your reward. We don’t want you to miss out, so if you’ve got any questions, do get in touch.

What happens if I forget to use the referral link?

The scheme is managed by Mention Me, so, as we mentioned above, it’s really important that you use the referral link provided. Be sure to check that your friend uses the link, rather than signing up through our website or over the phone.
