The smart Move: How to save €50 this week
If you're a customer of Electric Ireland and you're so annoyed about the ESB strike threat that you're considering switching to another energy provider, you'll bag a €50 Tesco gift card if you switch to Bord Gais for your electricity by December 8.
This will not only save you €50 off your Christmas shopping bill, it should also save you a few bob on your electricity bills over the next year.
As long as you sign up to Bord Gais's paperless billing and Level Pay plan – where you pay a fixed monthly bill by direct debit each month, you'll get a 10 per cent discount off Bord Gais's standard electricity unit rates.
Be sure your electricity bills will work out cheaper with Bord Gais. To be eligible for the Tesco gift card, you must be a new Bord Gais electricity customer and sign up online or over the phone.
