1 Referral definition of terms
1.1 Acceptance of key conditions: By participating in the Utility Point refer a friend program (the “Program”), existing members of Utility Point (“Referrers”) and the friends that they refer (“Referred Friends”) are non-formal to accept the following key conditions.
1.2 Eligibility: Referrers must be existing Utility Point members. Referred Friends must not have already signed up to Utility Point or be an existing member, already on supply with Utility Point, or a member of Utility Point in the preceding 12 months, under any email address or alias. An existing member of Utility Point moving supply of an additional property, which has not previously been supplied by Utility Point, is eligible for a Referrer Reward. The scheme is open to Referrers and Referred Friends who are residents of the UK. Over 18s only. Utility Point reserves the right to verify Referrers and Referred Friends and require proof of eligibility. Utility Point’s decision on eligibility shall be final and binding.
1.3 User: These terms apply to individuals who are accessing or using the Program both as a Referrer and a Referred Friend to Utility Point’s Services and the use of ‘User’ or ‘you’ shall be a reference to either or both as the context permits.
1.4 Reward: The Reward will vary by campaign. The active campaign for a Referrer is shown on their personal refer a friend dashboard page and any current programme terms and conditions can be found on UP’s refer a friend website page.
1.5 Sign Up Date: The date the Referred Friend informs Utility Point, via enrolment on the website, that they want to switch their energy supply to Utility Point.
1.6 Switch Date: The date Utility Point starts to supply electricity or electricity and gas to the Referred Friend.
2 Referrals and rewards
2.1 Registration: Once a Referrer has registered for the scheme, they will receive a Reward for each Referred Friend that successfully switches their energy supply to Utility Point, subject to these conditions.
2.2 Qualification for Reward: For a Referrer to qualify for a Reward, their Referred Friend must meet all applicable eligibility criteria and use the Referrer’s personal URL link (“Personal Link”) to switch energy supply to Utility Point on UtilityPoint.co.uk. Referrals claimed retrospectively are not eligible and will not be rewarded. Utility Point is not responsible for failure to issue Rewards resulting from an incorrectly quoted Personal Link.
2.3 Qualification for Reward – Referred Friend: A Referred Friend who meets the eligibility criteria and results in the Referrer being entitled to a Reward, will also be entitled to a Reward. A Referred Friend will not receive more than one Reward per property or fuel, must have an active Direct Debit in place and abide by Utility Point’s Terms and Conditions of business.
2.4 Cancellation: If the sign up to Utility Point by the Referred Friend is subsequently cancelled, this will result in the cancellation of the Referrer’s Reward and the Referred Friend’s Reward.
2.5 Notification: The Referrer will be notified by their preferred communication method once a Referred Friend has signed up, and again when the Reward has been earned.
2.6 Delivery: Rewards will be delivered to the Referrer and Referred Friend within 60 days of the successful Switch Date or Agreement Date of the Referred Friend, as long as no objections or notifications have been received and eligibility criteria have been met. The Reward will be in the form of a credit to both the Referrer’s and Referred Friend’s online accounts which can be viewed via the members’ area on the UP website.
