Does EDF have a Refer A Friend scheme and how does it work?

Yes, we do is the short answer. We're now treating our customers and their friends who sign up using the unique code their friend sent to a £50 Gift Card when they join us. We want to thank our customers for spreading the news.

How does it work?

Existing EDF customers can head to our referral site and choose how they'd like to share the offer code with their friends. When your friend signs up with us and we've been supplying their home for 30 days you'll both be sent you Amazon Gift Card.

How do I use my Refer A Friend Amazon Gift Card?

You can only use your Gift Card – you can’t use it in any shops or over the phone. 

Here’s what to do:

Go to

  • Click on the ‘Enter your code’ button.
  • Sign in to – or set up a new account if you don’t have one already (it’s very quick and easy).
  • Once you’ve signed in, go to the ‘Payment & GC’ section.
  • Click on ‘Apply a Gift Card to your account’.
  • Enter your claim code and click ‘Apply to your account’.

Once you’ve followed these steps, the money is sitting in your account and you can spend it. If you don’t spend it all on your first visit, the balance will be kept in your account for your next shop.

If your Gift Card doesn’t cover the total balance of everything you’re buying, you just pay the rest using a debit or credit card. If you’ve signed up for ‘One-click’ shopping, it will automatically take the rest of the money from the debit or credit card you’ve already registered.

You can also keep track of your referrals on your Refer a Friend dashboard. When you sign up you'll be sent a link to view how many friends you've sent and how many of your friends have used your link to sign up to us.

Why has my friend got their reward when I haven’t?

We send your reward by email, so have a look in your spam folder – it’s probably gone in there. If not contact us xxxxx

I referred a friend and they signed up. So why haven’t I heard from you?

We'll send your Refer a Friend reward as soon as we're supplying your friend's energy. That can take a little time from the point they sign up and they will need to be supplied by us for 30 days before we send out your Amazon Gift Cards.
