How to Switch Your Mates

‘Switch Your Mates’ is Powershop’s referral programme. You can score $100 free power for each mate who joins and switches their main home to us*.

What do I get?

You'll score $100 free power upfront for each friend you refer who successfully signs up their main home's electricity to us, using your unique referral link. Your friends will each get $150 free power too, but theirs will be spread over 12 months*. The more mates who sign up, the more free power you can get!

Referring your friends is as easy as sending a message or email. All you need is your special referral link, which you can then share however you like, with whoever you like.

Log in to your mobile app and click ‘Switch Your Mates’ from the main menu. If you’re on desktop, click on the ‘Switch Your Mates’ banner at the bottom of the Balance page.

Copy your referral link and share it on your favourite messaging app or social platform.

When your friends click your link it will come up with a special page where they can sign up with us, and automatically hook you up with free power once they become a customer.

There's no limit to the number of friends you can refer or the amount of free power you can receive. You really can get your mates to pay your power bill!

Got questions? Here are some answers

Will you spam my mates?

No. The only thing they will get from us is the link you share and the web page that opens up where they can sign up. There's no hard sell from us - but you can if you want!

How do I sell Powershop to my mates?

For some good pointers, check out the 'Why Powershop' page on our website. Or if you use our mobile app, simply show it to your mates. That often does the trick!
